Adventures of Pip is an action-platformer with a retro feel.  Play as the hero Pip, a small red block with big ambitions.  Pip can evolve into different forms by absorbing the pixels of those he's conquered putting a unique spin on the classic action-platforming 2D side scroller.

A combination of puzzle solving and damage dealing make up the gameplay of this retro inspired game.  The story takes place in the tiny Pixel Kingdom where the Skeleton Queen has kidnapped the Princess.  Using the unique talents of his three different forms, Pip must save the day.

The game will have  some epic music upon release.  Jake "virt" Kaufman has composed the soundtrack.  He's lent his talents to games such as Bloodrayne:Betrayal, Shantae and the Pirates Curse, Shovel Knight and now Adventures of Pip.

A demo of the game will be showcased at PAX South and East before the game's release in May.  The demo will feature new environments like the Temple of Marshes and obstacles such as meteors and mushrooms.  There will also be new enemies that can be interacted with differently depending on Pip's resolution.
