Welcome to the world of Trash Quest – a pixel art platformer in which your task will be to fight your way through the maze of the space station rooms by defeating numerous enemies with the help of collected power-ups.

This cute Metroidvania platformer with zero checkpoints, dynamic action, and amazing graphics by Francis Vace is heading to Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series S|X thanks to

The action takes place on board of Deliverance space station. While the crew is ready for a long journey to Tau Ceti, being settled in their cryo pods, the AI on the ship, during system check has detected uninvited guest.

Aaand yes, it’s a small, filthy raccoon with a simple purpose in life – to collect as much trash as he can. But this time his task won’t be that easy since defense systems don’t allow to take another passenger on the trip.

Trash Quest delivers exactly what you expect  – a short, intense, and tight platforming experience. The game’s world is divided into four zones, each with its own visual and musical theme, and the player has to traverse them by collecting upgrades and discovering new shortcuts on the map.

This is crucial for your mission because, in classic Metroidvania style, you can’t reach certain places unless you’ve upgraded yourself with the required ability. Like for example double or triple jump. 

The progression in the game saves automatically. BUT… there’s only one single spawn location where you reappear every time you die. Do not worry, any power-ups, abilities, or shortcuts you’ve unlocked will remain.

A tribute to retro games Trash Quest features pixel art graphics and a unique soundtrack inspired by classic video games that are sure to catch retro gaming enthusiasts’ attention.
