Drago D’Oro 2016

Hi all!

You know what? Our game, THE BODY CHANGER, has 2 nominations at the DRAGO D’ORO 2016, some kind of Italian Oscars of videogames. The nominations are: BEST ITALIAN GAME & BEST ARTISTIC ACHIEVEMENT.  Not bad, don’t you think? 😉

It’s a great news for us even because this is our first game and we are still unknown. Will we win? Who knows, but for a 2 guys team first project we think it’s amazing.
See ya in Rome, March 9th.

Christmas gift – finally Steam Keys for BM11 bundle!

Hi people,

for the love of our game and the hope that most of you will appreciate that, we decided to make a Christmas gift to all buyers of BM11, by providing them a Steam key for The Body Changer (via Groupees website).

Even if our game was only a BONUS with Desura keys in BM11, some bundle buyers do not ask the steam keys because part it, but to kindly advise us that giving the Steam keys could increase the visibility of the game and expand the amount of people who can play The Body Changer.

We’ve been persuaded: they could be right, let’s call it a “reasonable marketing move” 🙂

We will let you know as soon as possible when Groupees staff will publish the keys in their site.
Take care and have a nice XMas. 

Ciao,
Alessio & ALberto – TSATT

Fumetti per Gioco 2015

Hi all!
Last week end we were at Trieste for the Fumetti per Gioco 2015 fair.
We had an amazing times with all the people that we knew and played THE BODY CHANGER – a lot of congratulations and very good comments.
Some pics:

We had also the opportunity to speak with the youTuber Victorlaszlo88 which is a VERY nice person and liked a lot our game.
He played TBC on Saturday and came back on Sunday asking us to play again… Isn’t that cool? ^_^

Some pics about him:

On Sunday we also met Andrea “Bisboch” Babich which I’m a fan from the Outcast Soundshowser podcast (occasionally on the youTube channel from Fabio Bortolotto). We spoke about a lot of things that are game related, developing problems and stuff.. was quite amazing and he was very impressed by TBC.

And final pic with the fair staff and other devs:

End of August update

Hi people!

Time for a new updates after the usual weekly meeting – this week x2 :P.
Sector-10 is having some minor palette changes on last part and we are thinking where to put the interactive PCs for the story infos. Plus now the rooms have names and it was stress-tested.

tbc_sec10_complete03

tbc_sec10_ui

tbc_sec10_piece01

tbc_sec10_piece02

On other things: we added in the hints list a new one for switching between the SynBs, with the mouse wheel, and fixed some texts.
We have changed the position of an info PC in Sector-1, because there were too many in a room and we are adding a new info text that will appear during the first fight with the Kebre – here:

sec01-pcs

We added another 2 achievements, one for the last Sector and one for the Yellow Ray, just like the blue and the green one.
So right now we have added all the achievements from our list (last Sectors, end game…) + some more, everything is ready and uploaded on STEAM. We just need to finish last stuff and upload a new version and complete the end scene.

Alessio is changing the levels for adding some collectable items following a list we wrote months ago.

tbc_trophy

Of course this has also a specific new achievements. Here 3 of the icons:

achivIconsNew

The idea of the collectable items is also “related” to a new feature of the game you will see soon.
Alessio is working on an exporter/converter for all the languages texts – when it will be ready we will have the possibility to manage all the texts… just to time for making the translation 😉

Go-go-go! 😉 Take care,

Sector-08 second part

Last week you saw the new Sector-08 with screens from first part, today we want to show you some new progress.

Thanks to more testing the first part that you saw changed a bit. We removed a collectable key because it was useless, on gameplay side, re-ordered some invisible triggers and balanced the enemy-groups spawn order again. Why again? We decided to introduce here a new bonus for the Ighel SynB because the action oriented direction of the puzzles was sometimes a bit frustrating with the characters change, during the enemies attack. This is one of the common case where you think and design a game situation with all the details in mind (time, single action duration, rooms size, stuff inside…) and then, when you finally build it, you find out that something didn’t work that much as expected. But with the new bonus the situation flips and we must say that it really kick ass and it’s amazing how nice the multiple SynB use works now, while under attack!

On the first major puzzle we make the introduction more intuitive and added on a “special zone” some graphical hints, so it should be clear for the player what to do and we change a bit last part that was in some way skippable in the first version. The following puzzles changed with the elements timing and the enemy numbers and were adapt in some parts with the new bonus in mind. The final result is really very well balanced: you should now fell that if something didn’t work and you die, it’s your fault and not the game, you just need to try a better strategy or find a better way to defend and solve.

Here’s today screenshots, updated first part:

tbc_sect08Final_02 tbc_sect08Final_04 tbc_sect08Final_03

And the second part with the puzzles where the Nexus will be on the lower floor while the Ighel will run on a higher floor:

tbc_sect08Final_08 tbc_sect08Final_09 tbc_sect08Final_00tbc_sect08Final_14

tbc_sect08Final_10 tbc_sect08Final_13

We would like to share more but we are really on the SPOILER limit… even with what was shown. 😉

And before leaving, some WIP from last puzzle (maybe.. 😉 ) – take a look:

tbc_sect08Final_16

tbc_sect08Final_15Hope you like what’s coming!
Please comment and share!

Take care,
