New Blip: Master Key

While technology marches forward and triple-A game developers give life to the most realistic visuals ever conceived, games with simple 1-bit graphics are on the rise among indie developers, with recent examples including Minit and Gato Roboto, which stand as veritable as testaments to the gameplay-over-graphics ideology of retro game fans. Master Key, from Achromi joins this exclusive club with a Zelda-like adventure set in an open world and offering item-based progression. After discovering a rusty key in a cave, you set out to explore a mysterious world filled with secrets and puzzles. Slash your way through enemies and hedges, discover hidden treasures, purchase useful items from shops, and even take part in some hookshot action.

The game is coming to PC but does not yet have an announced release date.
