UFO 50, as indicated by its name, will be a collection of 50 games all released together. Each game will be "slightly smaller" than an actual 8-bit game from that time period, but Yu and co stress that they're "full games" rather than minigames.
The group is working to create just about any type of game you can think of, from shooter to sports, platformers and RPGs, brawlers, puzzle games, and any other odd thing that might find its way into the compendium.
The all-star crew consists of Derek Yu (Spelunky), Eirik Suhrke (Skorpulac), Jon Perry (Time Barons), Paul Hubans (Madhouse), and Ojiro Fumoto (Downwell). The developers say that each title was made in the '80s by a fictional company that was "obscure but ahead of its time."Everything will feature a 32-bit color palette".
Each of the 50 games will have a single-player mode, the developers say, and about 30-percent of them will also feature multiplayer modes of either the competitive or cooperative variety. (Spelunky, his groundbreaking game, was first released way back in 2008 and remade in 2012.) Except now, that collective assumption lead observers down another path entirely: a communal one, due to other developers sharing hashtags with screenshots as well.
The creators then went to offer details about their UFO 50 collection.
Good news if you and yours have long worn out Sportsfriends' appeal - it's been a few years, so that's understandable - and you're hankering for another collection of unique multiplayer games.
A price has yet to be announced, but its creators want it to be "an easy purchase".
