This is a sidescrolling platformer that has some nice background art and animation (though the protagonist is crap), but I don't have much faith in it because the dev seems quite stupid. He has set up his site in such a way that you can't link any of his media. The videos are auto-playing embeds that he hasn't uploaded to YouTube, and the screenshots show you a copyright icon when you try to get their address and link to them. Never seen such foolishness in my entire life. The image I linked must have been painstakingly ripped by someone from the dude's site and posted on Imgur.

It's worth visiting his site to see what I am talking about.

He did put this video up on YT about a month ago, but it doesn't feature any platforming, it's just a 37-second background scroll: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j16DclmE1Nk

It is beautiful though, and the guy is not Western, he is from Singapore, so this is worth keeping an eye on.
