    Hi, I'm Bacrylic. I'm the acting art director and sole artist/animator for Squaretale, a two man indie development group currently making their first game. Our game, The Book of Alex, will be a pixel, metroidvania fantasy adventure. We've been working on this on and off for quite some time. Due to real life constraints we've only been able to dish out the time as of late. Conceptually our inspiration derives from the movie The Pagemasterand the game Kingdom Hearts. Where in you play as Alex who world dives into public domain stories and has to fight creatures and take quests in order to clear up the corruption of the originals. Btw we're going with the original stories, not the Disney clean up stuff. I'm talking the dark and twisted shit. Anyway here is our progress, I'd appreciate any feedback I can get.
