Description

Sure Footing is a fast and frantic endless running about four friends saving their world from extinction. The world of Computra is under threat from the evil Ramrafstar and his ferocious minion Deletion Dave as they seek to destroy the partitions that hold everything together. Join Pixel Pete, Polly Polygon, Blip and Plunk as they outrun their newfound enemies across the sectors of the Computra hard disk: to warn their friends and find a way to stop Ramrafstar before their homeworld is destroyed.

History

What started out as a small academic project in procedural level generation systems brought not only Sure Footing but the formation of Table Flip Games as we now know it! In development over three years while we've been busy teaching university students (including some who wound up working on the game itself), the world of Computra and its characters slowly took form with every build put on show. Sure Footing has been shown at UK events such as the EGX Rezzed, the Insomnia Games Festival, MCM Comic Con, Game City, the Norwich Gaming Festival and the STEM Big Bang Fair.

Features

  • Four playable characters - Pixel Pete, Polly Polygon, Blip and Plunk - each with their own strengths and weaknesses.
  • Play your own way! Customise each character with a variety of power-ups and skill tree buffs.
  • Over 50 costumes to unlock by completing challenges in-game.
  • Evil villains Ramrafstar and Deletion Dave are going to cause you all sorts of trouble!
  • Local competitive and co-operative multiplayer for up to four players!
  • Visit the distant sectors of Computra and watch out for the weird and wonderful changes they bring.
  • A bright and funky soundtrack by Eli Rainsberry (Hashtag Dungeon).
  • Blends the best of classic platforming with fast-paced infinite runner gameplay.

Selected Articles

  • "While infinite runners are certainly not a new thing, most of them air on the side of caution with how they generate levels... What makes Sure Footing different is the fact that the level formation is done on a much smaller, tighter scale, that the game also has a lot of verticality and also in how the game allows you to assign your own abilities before you set out on your attempts to best your previous high score."
    - Dann Sullivan, Big Boss Battle
  • "It’s the addictive, finely crafted platforming gameplay and the cute, 8-bit art design that attracts attention for this game."
    - Reza Hassan, GReviews
