Arzette: The Jewel of Faramore is a loving homage to early adventure platformers, capturing the gorgeous aesthetic of the era while improving on the controls, level design, and overall fun of its inspirations. It includes a number of lovingly-rendered animated cutscenes strongly influenced by certain famous/infamous video game cartoon sequences, and even welcomes some of the same voice actors. It’s a colorful, magical, and surprising 2D odyssey that won the hearts of critics and players alike.

Don’t yet have Arzette: The Jewel of Faramore? You can pick it up on Steam, PlayStation, Switch, and Xbox. Limited Run Games is also re-listing their highly collectible CD-i style controllers to experience new game thrills with old school control. These optional special controllers are compatible with PC and Switch and are being sold with a Steam code for Arzette included. They make Arzette harder, but that’s kind of the point.

During the contest, feel free to post about your time, gameplay clips, and entries on social and tag @limitedrungames. And don’t forget to check out Arzette this week at GDQ!
