I’m Josep Monzonís, a solo indie game developer, and I love playing and creating games. I like to create games with a very personal style. That’s why I’m in charge of all aspects of the video game creation process: pixel art, coding, game design, and drawing. I have already worked on several indie games but Horned knight is my latest and most ambitious game; it has been in development for a long time.
After making the game playable enough to be shown to other people, I showcased it at local events where independent developers meet to talk games, make friends, and learn from each other. People seemed to be really having fun playing it, even as a very early demo.
I brought a build to the Valencia Indie Summit and presented it to 2Awesome Studio. I was nervous, but they were encouraging and liked the concept. It was a dream come true to develop my own game for a major console!
As a lifelong game developer, I’ve been playing and creating games for many years, but this is my first major console release of a personal project. I’ve always been a huge fan of retro-style 2D action platformer games and just had to develop a game that would reintroduce the golden age of arcade gaming into a 2D-style action platformer. retro hardcore. I can’t wait for you to put your hand Horned knight and let me know what you think! I hope it can reach as many people as possible and that you will all enjoy it.
Are you ready?
