Upper Byte announces Wooden Sen'SeY

Lyon, France, April 16th, 2012.

"After over one year of work by the two creators, the young independent studio Upper Byte presents its first video game: Wooden Sen’SeY”

It's an action/platform game for PC and Mac, set in a colorful and offbeat Japanese universe, "Japan Steam Rock," scheduled for release in summer 2012.

You follow Goro, a village chief, as he seeks revenge through a variety of levels (Japanese temples, ocean beds, flying boats, and other inhospitable caverns).

The game has 9 levels with bosses that Goro has to overcome using his axes.

Run, grab hold, throw yourself forward, chop, throw shurikens: anything goes in pursuit of your goal!

Each time a level changes, the graphics and sound also change!

The difficulty draws inspiration from old-school games for scores and achieving perfection.

More experienced players can try to beat the developers' score... if they dare!

In summary:

·         Several ways to take the way of the Sensei: dive in or play with finesse!

·         A unique "Japan Steam Rock" universe with punch and tons of humor

·         Several different types of atmosphere and gameplay

·         An original graphic style, an exclusive OST

·         "Dev-Time" challenge for each level: beat the developers' time

·         Localized in 5 languages: French, English, Spanish, Italian, German
