This was originally 'Raider 2', but since the original 'Raider' was never finished, this one took the title and that became 'Raider Zero'.
I was a big fan of platformers before I ever knew about RPGs, and spent my childhood designing platformer levels on paper, etc, so I wanted to make at least one platformer at some point.
It was never meant to be anything special; just a sort of generic platformer, in a pixelated style. However, due to my level-making approach, what it ended up as was something fiendishly difficult that only the most devoted players can finish at all!
It was originally going to be released in five parts, but that may not happen due to the lukewarm reception of the first two.
Anyway, in this, you play as 'Arkus Zei', a Cyrian 'space pirate' who makes a living from raiding dead starships for treasure. He comes across a drifting wreck, and investigates...
