Myself (Seedy Eye Software). Artwork, voiceover, animation, additional design, production and more are provided by a variety of talented contributors.


Limited Run Games, known for their excellent, high-quality physical edition products as well as the world-class “Carbon Engine”, responsible for preserving games of yesteryear for modern audiences. They also have a penchant for putting out unique games that nobody expects; hence, they are the perfect partner for Arzette.


The game is designed to be about the combined size of both of the games Arzette is inspired by plus a bit more, depending on your playstyle and amount of exploration.


Like my previous projects, the game is developed in GameMaker Studio 2.


No, the digital release will be available on digital platforms as long as those platforms exist.


Yes! Jeffrey Rath and Bonniejean Wilbur, voice actors from those games, return to provide new voiceover. Additionally, Rob Dunlavey returns to lend his artistic talents to the game.


I reached out and explained the project very clearly. They were all absolutely on board. Further details will be provided in the future.


No, the only legacy talent involved are those who have been announced. To respect the privacy of the talent involved, I will not share contact details or anything further regarding this.


The first design document was written in December 2020. I worked on it since then, so about three years.


Of course. Wouldn’t be a game by me if there weren’t!


Arzette is the only playable character in the game.


Yes! In addition to English, there will be an interface and subtitle translation in French, Italian, German, Spanish, Dutch, Brazilian Portuguese, and Norwegian. Voiceovers will remain English-only.


It plays like classic action adventure games of yore. My design partner John Linneman described it as “Monster World” like…some have noted similarities to Shantae, which also has Monster World-like gameplay. No, I have strived to make a very good game that fits into the mold the games Arzette is inspired by, while attempting to smooth over the missteps of those games.


Absolutely not. While there are a couple of fun nods to the games Arzette is inspired by, I wanted to make a new interactive animated adventure…one that plays things straight with a bit of a goofy tone, just like the legacy games.


Yes, and I love and appreciate all of them. I’m so flattered that people want to make art out of my very silly game.
