The retro-futuristic pixel game

Explore and fight in a retro-futuristic world. Swim deep into a oneiric, poetic and unique experience across dimensional planes.

The aesthetic of the game was inspired by retro pixel adventures (Castlevania, Another World, Double Dragon) with a modern touch.

And an 80s plot homage (Ready Player One, He-Man, The Last Starfighter),   accompanied by the retro synth touch of the old glory days.



Flash back to the 80s. The Creator, a genius of his time, creates a video game console called Narita One with its flagship title being a game called Narita Boy.
Narita Boy becomes a tremendous hit! Copies of cartridges are flying off physical shelves worldwide.
Within weeks Narita Boy is the best-selling video game of all time, critically acclaimed for its homage to 80s culture and exceptionally kickin’ soundtrack.
Meanwhile, inside the binaural code the digital realm connects with reality.
Him has returned and deleted The Creator’s memories.
Supervisor program, Motherboard, and her agents have activated the Narita Boy protocol.
The Stallions are coming, and the Digital Kingdom need a hero.


Echoes from a distant dimension.


Success is a journey, not a destination.

Explore The Digital Kingdom, an eclectic Neo-retro dimension populated by original NPCs.
Traverse the three Houses of the Trichroma, unexpected locations inspired in ancient cosmovisions mixed with fever dreams.
Feel the Trichroma and follow the code lines of the Creator.
“Find Floppy keys, interact with your environment, resolve puzzles, upgrade your skills to keep progressing.” 

“But it ain’t how hard you hit; it’s about how hard you can get hit,  and keep moving forward “


A tightly tuned combat system that is challenging, intense and rewarding.

Master the Technosword, practice and release all her potential.

Use her powerups and learn new movements to learn new combat strategies.


The Trichroma is strong in you

The Trichroma is a very ancient energy that emanates from the Core of the Digital Kingdom.
Use it wisely to heal and empower yourself.
Call your brother in arms, the Legendary Trichroma Dudes, powerful programs ready to sustain your fights.  


The Stallions, foes from the Horror Dimensions

A great variety of enemies are emerging in The Digital Kingdom.
All with different specs and abilities. Learn their attack pattern and take benefits of their weakness.
Above them a bunch of final bosses, an extensive gallery of dangerous and challenging foes.

A handcrafted, evocative and immersive pixel art universe

Narita Boy is a poetic, subtle and beautiful handcrafted experience.
Every asset of the game is individually designed and painted.
There is no tile system which means that every assets (over one thousand) and every stage (over three hundred) are painted one by one.
The animation is traditional 2D full animation, which means that every frame is drawn again and again to make a smooth and fluid motion.
Narita Boy has more than twenty thousand animation sprites.
We don’t use particle system, which means that all visual FX are also animated frame by frame.
