Today’s Spotlight is Spark the Electric Jester 2, a fast-paced 3D platformer by Feperd Games, a developer that started out in the Sonic fangame community.
The original Spark the Electric Jester was a homage to the 2D Sonic games. With the sequel, Feperd Games decided to pay respect to the 3D Sonic games, most notably Sonic Adventure 1 & 2. This sequel picks up from the story of the original game, and features a blend of traditional platforming, fast-paced action, and combat. You can watch the launch trailer above.
Spark the Electric Jester 2 is available on Windows PC via Steam for $19.99.
Here’s a rundown of the game:
Following right after the ending of the original Spark the Electric Jester, you’ll take control of Fark, now in the third dimension, in his quest to find out his true identity! Speed through several fast paced platforming stages, action packed bosses and fully animated cutscenes.
The story picks up right after the first ending of the original game and tells Fark’s story. The gameplay is a mix of action and platforming in a clever way, taking elements from many games of both genres, you are able to find powers that change the way you play, enjoy a great freedom of movement, discover many different ways to beat each stage and ways to do it faster. The same composers from the original game are back in full force, delivering a soundtrack that is better than ever.
