Proud Dinosaurs have announced their debut game, Macrotis: A Mother’s Journey, will be coming to PC in the first quarter of 2019. Inspired by titles like Ori and the Blind Forest, the 2.5D puzzle platformer will take players on a fully-voiced story-driven experience of a mother bilby trying to find her children during a hurricane.

The game is set to feature a professionally-scored soundtrack and “the developers are looking to deliver an emotionally charged narrative set in a magical fantasy world.” In the upcoming game, the players will set off on the quest to find the missing children, coming across a wide assortment of creatures and obstacles, all while the flooding of the world is getting worse.

Our studio was founded by a group of friends who love games and the experiences they can provide. We wanted to create something that pulled at people’s emotional strings but provided a solid gameplay challenge backed with a distinctive art style and top audio performances,” says Cagan Yanilmaz Producer at Proud Dinosaurs.
