Game Description

Leonard Saves the City is a lighthearted homage to 80s/90s 2D platformers with modern low-poly inspired graphics. You play as a puppy, Leonard, who must find his way home. On his adventure he'll discover new friends, explore his evolving city, and maybe even learn a little more about himself.

Leonard is pretty brave for a little guy but he’ll have to face some scary paper bag monsters, suspicious looking furniture, and other things that dogs don’t usually like.

And there’s something shy about all those drones and vacuum bots that have suddenly appeared around the city.

Second Lunch Studios

Founded by Hoa X. Nguyen an artist/designer who has been captivated by video games ever since he saved up for the original Nintendo. Since being inspired, in his teens, by the formation of Shiny Entertaiment and Earthworm Jim; he has dreamed of starting a small game company focused around fun, quirky, weird games, with exciting gameplay.

There are many delicious options on the gaming menu today but many are serious in tone and we think consumers are nostalgic for a lighter option but without sacrificing game-play. Second Lunch Studios wishes to add to the variety by crafting a meal based on tight classic 2D game-play with a modern artistic twist. Easy to learn but challenging to master. Pair with a generous glass of humor, with subtle notes of dad-jokes, satire, and social commentary. We need funding because this requires quality ingredients and proper prep time to reach the most bestest serving temperature.
