Pixel Lincoln: The Gameplay

Originally posted at For more developer blogs on Pixel Lincoln and other games in-progress, visit

After two weeks of describing the initial card game, and the team behind the game, we're finally ready to discuss the actual game! So what is Pixel Lincoln all about?

Pixel Lincoln is a side-scrolling video game, with retro-styled graphics, inspired by such classics as Super Mario Bros. 3 (simplicity), MegaMan 2 (difficulty), and Earthbound (humor).

You start out the game as Lincoln, aboard the main cabin of Rail Force One. After Lincoln's hat suddenly blows off of his head and right out the window, he searches and encounters enemies, makes friends, and ends up in areas that he never expected. Lincoln just wants his hat back, but he doesn't realize the power that it holds! And if that power gets into the wrong hands… (SPOILERS: It does)

Lincoln appears to be your average pixel president, but with a few hidden surprises.

Is that a boxing glove?
Yes! Sometimes you just need to knock someone out.

An arm cannon?
Yes! Loaded with all of the finest projectiles.

A beardarang?
Yes! Lincoln's beard is his main weapon (of course). And just like a boomerang, it comes back. Well, actually.. it grows back.

As for the enemies…

This is Booth, Lincoln's nemesis.

Booth has band of disguised henchmen, wearing their elusive mexican wrestler masks.

And here is the first of our non-human enemies. It's an annoying smiling slime that just gets in your way. (originally created by Fruitless Pursuits contributor Suzanne!)

Check back next week for a photo recap of the initial reveal of Pixel Lincoln, mega Pixel Lincoln, and much more.
