There is a little game called Evoland which I dipped in and out of earlier this year, it is a fascinating little game where you travel through the various stages of RPG adventure games with ever evolving abilities and visual style, from 8-bit to a 3D world. It really is quite good, so I am intrigued by the idea of the developers Shiro GamesUntil Dark. The first concept art can be found after the break.
