Press release: Kickstarter Launch

Senile Team are launching their Kickstarter for Intrepid Izzy, an exciting new platform game with a beat 'em up twist

Dordrecht, September 26, 2017 - Senile Team, the guys who brought you Rush Rush Rally Racing and Beats of Rage, have launched their Kickstarter for Intrepid Izzy.

Senile Team brings together classic and modern gaming with their new game Intrepid Izzy, a 7 level non-linear action adventure platform game with a beat ‘em up twist. Inspired by games like Super Metroid, Sonic the Hedgehog and Streets of Rage, the game packs a surprising number of combat actions as well as 6+ outfit changes granting unique special abilities.

Intrepid Izzy will hopefully surprise players as they deal with aliens, robots, rayguns and microgravity - as well as changing into a flying squirrel or vampire bat. The non-linear story is filled with humorous dialogues, eccentric characters and mysterious secrets.

Animated and programmed by Roel van Mastbergen, with music created by Ben Boahene - players should expect bright, warm graphics with smooth animations thanks to custom made software.
"Intrepid Izzy is a genre-defying 2D game with a unique HD art style. Seamlessly blending platforming with beat-'em-up and adventure elements, Intrepid Izzy offers a gaming experience that feels both unique and familiar," says Roel van Mastbergen.

"A lot of time and attention was spent on developing the visual style of the game. The crisp and cartoony HD graphics come to life thanks to bright, warm colours and smooth animations."
Senile Team are counting on the support of gaming fans to complete and develop this game. Find their Kickstarter here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/senileteam/intrepid-izzy-pc-dreamcast-ps4. Intrepid Izzy will be available on Windows PC’s, SEGA Dreamcast, and if their stretch goal is reached, PlayStation 4.

About Senile Team
Senile Team is an independent game developer, who achieved instant fame in 2003 with the surprise hit "Beats of Rage". This moddable, open source engine was ported to over a dozen platforms and sparked the revival of the scrolling beat 'em up genre with over 100 community-developed mods.

"Beats of Rage" was followed by Senile Team's first commercially released game, Rush Rush Rally Racing, released for Dreamcast and WiiWare in 2009.
With their continuing love of the 16-bit era, Senile Team’s goal is to create new and original games inspired by the classics.
