Finally THE END+Arenas!

tbc_taken01

DONE! The game is finally complete!

Tomorrow we will upload a new version on STEAM! The game has soooo many changes that it will force new save-games (will do it automatically), old ones are now obsolete.
This version has also a lot of fixes, new hints, new rooms and more cut scenes plus a complete new feature which is a new MAP SYSTEM, related to the collectable-items. You can see on the map where your current SynB and the other SynBs are at any time and see also other informations about the sector.

Take a look:

tbc_map01

We have also complete the IT localization and all the arenas are ALL DONE and READY to play – you just need to find out how unlock them 😛
The game modes for the arena mode are still 3 and for each one there are 3 different sectors with a different weapons asset – for a total of 9 different arenas.
Some pics:

tbc_arenaWIP06tbc_virusArenatbc_arenaWIP07 tbc_arena3WIP01 tbc_arenaWIP04 The loading time for any arena was also reduced drastically – you will see. 😉

That’s all, hope you are happy for the news and we hope also you will play and enjoy and then spread the word!
For any feedback or problem remember to write on the official game HUB!

Thanks a lot, have a great week end and take care!

Sector-10 changing again and again

tbc_july

Hi people!
How is it? We were stingy 😛 with the news, but the hard work never stopped.
SO: we are still on Sector-10. Do you remember the maps from last post? Yes? Ok, forget them 😛

We are changing almost everything because we weren’t happy with the mechanics and ideas. We made some prototypes but the gameplay didn’t work as expected and wasn’t that fun. When the gameplay becomes tedious we aren’t happy and if we aren’t happy we want to stop.

So, at the end, we decided to change and try different stuff even if the idea to use more SynBs at the same times remains. We developed different ideas but we had discarded all for the same reason. -_- On one we found out that our engine has a a limitation that we never noticed and that make us change some part of the level designs (but that’s a secret 😉 ).

Here some image from current prototype:

hardProto3 hardProto4As you can see it’s in early state and we will maybe split it in 2 parts and add stuff before and after.

Just to avoid tediousness we added a new shortcut for making the SynBs change faster: you can still change between last SynB with SPACE + LEFT MOUSE BUTTON but from next beta version if you press SPACE BAR + move the MOUSE WHEEL you will change SynBs as you do with the weapons. Pretty cool, isn’t it? 😉 We noticed that it was necessary when you need more then 2 SynBs and it works very well.

We also fixed many mini bugs that we found out when we have tried the first version of Sector-10 (collisions, overlap on fighting animation and more) so then game is a bit more solid.

Ok that’s all for today. Hope next time to show more 😉
Take care and have Great time.

Hard Rock New Trailer + FREE DEMO on STEAM

Hi all

finally we have the NEW TRAILER, here is it with a very cool rock song by the nice group The Spin Wires , take a look:

When we listened to their music we were really impressed by the quality and the sound so we decided to use one song on the video. We think it works very well, don’t you think? 😉
You should check also their other songs, very good stuff. 😉

And from today we have also uploaded the new DEMO on STEAM , so if you love the platform and want to try the game or have friend that would like, now it’s finally possible.

The demo has 3 different Sectors/levels from current BETA.
The first for introducing you to the story and the game mechanics, the second with an advance puzzle session and last for some cool action.
Enjoy and share to your friends please!

Next step: as told, we are on last sector, S-10, which is last. We are still on designing and defining what will it have – you know, we have many ideas but we want to have a balanced level and not just a “box” with as many things as possible. Maybe next week end we can show something.
In the mean time, some more design wip pics:

Take care and have a great week end.
