Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom
Yesterday, the developers of Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom shared the latest devblog post for the game, revealing the new hand-drawn design of the lion transformation.

There’s a lot of different transformations in this game, and you can switch from one to the other at any time. In fact, it’s not just that you can… you need to do so, in order to progress through the game.
