Retro 2D Action Game Vertebreaker - by Headcannon, Co-Developer of Sonic Mania
Led by Simon "Stealth" Thomley, who is known for past programming work on Sega's Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonic the Hedgehog 2 mobile ports, as well as the highly popular Sonic Mania and Sonic Mania Plus, Headcannon has set out to create a new game of their own - Vertebreaker!
Headcannon needs your help to make this game a reality! This game is brand-new and development is just beginning. To complete the game, we need to raise the funds necessary to carry us through the process. Our team consists of 8 very talented individuals, some of whom want to work on this game as their full-time job while the rest still put in long hours themselves. We want to focus heavily on the development of this game in order to both get it done well and get it done in less than 2 years!
If you haven't seen it before, Vertebreaker is a retro 2D action game about a skeleton who uses the spine of a demon as both a weapon and a grappling hook! Slash through monsters with stylish combos! Master the springy action of the grappling hook and fly high through the level at blistering speed!
