Button City, described on the official site as a “low poly narrative adventure” is due to release this year on Steam.
The description on the site is as follows:
“Play as Fennel the fox as you explore a diorama world, play exciting arcade games, and meet cute animal friends. Explore a high-jinks story to save the arcade from a greedy fat cat who threatens to tear it down.“
The trailer footage depicts a game with wonderful colors and pleasing art. The snippets of story scenes also seem promising, with a reference to playing video games for the whole day and an amusing scene where a character seems to be begging to get into the closed arcade.
Button City is developed by Subliminal, a team that started in 2012 and is based in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The team has one other project under their belt, according to their press page. That other game is 2015’s Sky Pets for iOS and Android phones.
They “focus on creating bright, cute high aesthetic games with quirky mechanics.”
