Developer Underdog Studios has chosen quite a unique way to pay homage to their favorite game designers – they’ve made them into video game characters. Dawn of the Devs is a 2D puzzle platformer that reminds me very much of a Blizzard’s age-old classic Lost Vikings: you have three characters (devs) to switch between on the fly, using each of their unique abilities to tackle the obstacles ahead. The three devs in question – who I’m sure you’ll instantly recognize – are whisked away to the Wicked World of Gaming in order to fight the C.E.O., that is, the Chief Evil Overlord. Yeah. You can see where this is going.

Now, the game is up on Kickstarter at the moment with a $65,000 initial goal. But that’s not all: there are stretch goals, most of which would add new game devs as playable characters, alternate costumes, full voice acting, as well as PS4 and Xbox One ports. According to the campaign page, Dawn of the Devs is scheduled to be released sometime in November of 2018 for PC.
