There are a lot of exciting Amiga projects in development at the moment, and Monochrome Productions' Tony (spotted by IndieRetroNews) is definitely another one to add to that continually-growing list.

The monochrome platformer was demoed yesterday via a 2-minute video posted on YouTube and is the work of the artist Rafal Dudek, programmer Pawel Tukatsch, musician Michal Brzezicki, and the Amiga arranger XLent.

It is a tribute to the legendary Polish explorer, filmmaker, and travel writer Tony Halik, who was the subject of a 2017 biography and a 2021 documentary that were both titled "Tony Halik. Tu Bylem" (which can be translated to "Tony Halik. I was here").

Not much is known about the game, but the video seems to show a young explorer-type character travelling through ancient ruins Indiana Jones-style, avoiding snakes, spooky insects, and deadly pits filled with spikes. A bunch of familiar collectibles can also be seen, including keys (which are presumably to open the locked doors and chests you come across on your adventure).

According to the video description, in addition to an Amiga version, it will be also coming to Commodore 64, ZX Spectrum, and Atari XL computers. We'll try and keep you updated as we find out more.
