Clunky Hero and the The Cork Kickstarters, and releases for Inexistence Rebirth, Two Bit Hero, and Johann Weiss.

The Metroidvania Review is keeping its ear to the floor for any Metroidvania related news, and on a weekly basis we gather it up and share it with you. This will primarily be links to other sites, and you may have already heard the news throughout the week, but in case you missed something we hope to provide a good summary for what’s out there.

If you hear any interesting Metroidvania news – New Games, Major Updates to Existing Games, interviews with Metroidvania developers, or anything else of merit – share it with us and we will share it here on this weekly post with credit given to the finder (Please provide a link to your social media so we can send them back your way.) Even if you find something we already knew about, we’ll still give you credit.

New Kickstarter Pages

A comedy Metroidvania where you help Rufas save his homely wife from the Evil One’s spell. Advertised as a mix of Hollow Knight and parody games like Munchkin.

Expiring Kickstarters

The Cork
Just a reminder that The Cork’s kickstarter is expiring next week, so if you want to jump in now is your chance. It’s a minimalist pixel art game with deliberate Souls-like combat, and it most certainly appeals to me.

New Releases
