I’m Josep Monzonís, a solo indie game developer, and I love playing and making games. I like making games with a very personal style. That’s why I’m responsible for all aspects of the video game manufacturing process: pixel art, coding, game design, and drawing. I’ve worked on several indie games before, but Horned Knight will be my final and most ambitious game. it’s been in development for a long time.
After making the game playable enough to be shown to others, I took it to some local events where indie developers met to talk about games, make friends, and learn from each other. People seemed to really enjoy playing, even as a super early demo.
I brought a build to the Valencia Indie Summit and made it available 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 large console!
As a lifelong game developer, I’ve played and made games for many years, but this is my first major console version of a personal project. I’ve always been a huge fan of retro-style 2D action platformer and just had to create a game that would bring back the golden age of arcade gaming in a hardcore retro-style 2D action platformer. I can’t wait for you to get your hands on it Horned knight and let me know what you think! Hope it can reach the maximum number of people and that all of you enjoy it.
