Project Category: Funding Year 9


Sinbad is an adventure, platformer with stylized environments and puzzles taking inspiration from the likes of Super Mario, A Hat in Time, and the Legend of Zelda. It follows the young sailor on his first voyage out into the seven seas.

During their first outing Sinbad and his Uncle get caught up in a storm, far out to sea. After attempting to moor their ship on the coast of a nearby island, the ship gets blown down the coast with his Uncle still on board. Now alone, Sinbad must traverse this new landscape to get back to the safety of their ship.

As Sinbad works his way across the treacherous island, he finds: many challenges that stand in his way, many natives who are fascinated by him and a great secret of the island’s origin that could doom all of it’s inhabitants to the depths of the sea.
