Evoland. You have my attention.
A concept of playing through an abbreviated history of gaming advancements, from 8bit to HD is genius. I am very much intrigued to play. I anticipate the story will be as clever as the delivery.
Shiro Games site gives a good description:
"Evoland is a game and a story. The story of action adventure gaming as seen in the Zelda or Final Fantasy series, starting with the early age of action RPGs, when a few pixels were enough to make us dream for hours. New players will discover a bit of video game history and a very fun gameplay, and veterans will also enjoy a host of references to legendary titles scattered along the game."
