A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

Let's make a fun platformer adventure game - together! 


This is a demo. The full game is still in development.

Vibrant Venture is a singleplayer 2D adventure platformer game mixed with some on the fly puzzle solving! The game features four playable characters each with two unique abilities. By switching between these characters, you can combine their abilities for extremely versatile, fluid and fun movement! 

The main focus of the game is traditional platforming combined with responsive and open-ended controls in a challenging environment which constantly gives the player fun and rewarding experiences. This also means there are often multiple ways to clear different sections!

Install instructions

Unzip the .zip file and run the Vibrant Venture.exe file. Your anti-virus may detect the program as a threat, so make sure you allow it to run anyway.

I never played this on Roblox. It's my first time hearing of it. I love the character swapping and the world designs! Definite highlights. Some of the layout choices in the demo slowed the pacing, along with your base movement speed, which feels stunted to me. But that could just be my preference. This kind of platformer really benefits from forward momentum, so I'm interested in seeing where the full game ends up. Especially with the sprites and animations. In the meantime, I featured it on my list. Keep up the good work and good luck! 

it looks like it will be really good when fully done.I like how colourful the world is and how you have to change characters mid air to get past some parts of the environment and i feel like a lot of cool things can be done with that I also look forward to see if there will be a story along with the full game.


would rate rainbow out of all the colors

I loved it until I got to the part where you have to character swap in the air to get across...

The button just would not work. Or I couldn't figure it out. Really great game otherwise and I wish I could play more.

good game



Absolutely loved it. From the platforming and weight of the character, to the pixel art and music -- so rad. I really, really love this experience. I'll be keeping an eye out on this project.

i like goldy games that. But I love Fireboy and Watergirl 2. I love the Dark levels on hudgames

Epic ROBLOX game, can't wait for it to be relesed

I'm on Mac OS Catalina and the Mac demo doesn't seem to be working for me. I keep getting an error message that the game can't be opened :c

me too it looks like a good game :c 

Pretty polished build, I wonder what the story is... I guess we'll have to wait for the release? ;)

this was an excellent roblox gaiden. beautiful graphics and presentation. gameplay was solid, but my ps4 controller wasn't working. good game regardless, and i wish the kickstarter well

I dont like the sprites but THE GAMEPLAY omg, when i realize I can press Q to slow time i was shocked, thanks for this good demo

remember this game from roblox?

Reviewed live at: https://www.twitch.tv/naturalpowergames ; very good game. Seems to have a future honestly. 

Despite being just a demo, Vibrant Venture is looking like a really well done game. The art is cartoonish, but not over the top, and the colors all really pop. And while swapping between characters while moving around feels a little awkward to me on gamepad, the controls are otherwise pretty solid. The world also has lots of nostalgia to it, genuinely feeling like a Snes style game.

Good job, devs.

Based on the video, I think it feels awkward to you because you neither sprint (which is something you do in all platformers to jump higher) nor used the character wheel to slow down time by moving the right thumbstick. Instead, you only used quick-swapping with the DPad, which is a lot harder to use.

All of these features are presented in the tutorial, but it seems like you didn't notice, which could either be our fault (bad design) or yours (not paying attention). Either way, for the next demo, we'll try making it more clear by enabling auto-sprinting by default as well as streamlining the tutorial boards more. 

Also, sorry if this sounded aggressive, I only wanted to present these points of view as a means to gain a better understanding of how we can improve. They're simply objective analytical observations ;)

Thanks for playing!

I booted up the game again and, yeah, I definitely missed the option for using the right stick. Often, other games I've played with similar swap out mechanics just used the d-pad, so I instinctively went to that. As for sprinting, I knew about it, it's just that I'm forgetful and was mostly putzing around, enjoying the scenery.

Perfectly fine. A mistake occurred and was corrected, so I get that. It happens with new games.

Huh, looks like something from roblox. Wait, is this made by them?

yes

Nice!

Great demo. As someone who played Yoshi's Island growing up I appreciated the opening screen and end of level chalkboard. I recorded a clip for itch.io's YouTube channel:
