IntoTheBasilicaRevisited Having been too busy working on Droidscape: Basilica, it seems we haven’t actually been able to let you know much about the game itself. We haven’t really shared detailed info about how it will play, its graphics, its setting, its plot or the team responsible for the creation of both the TAL Universe and Droidscape: Basilica. Well, that’s why we put together a brand new, 30-pages long and richly illustrated PDF booklet for you: Into The Basilica: Revisited.
Read it and find out about the TAL Universe, the Guild of Chronomacers, the corporate invasion of the Basilica and even have a look at some early but definitely characteristic in-game graphics, all the while peeking behind the Droidscape: Basilica scenes.
Bundle In A Box returns for its fourth installment and is proud to present you with the (most thematic) Cerebral Bundle. A fine assortment of 9 delightful, properly smart and truly indie offerings everyone can enjoy for the most reasonable price of “pay-what-you-want” over HERE.
The bundle, our fourth effort of to promote indie creators and quality games, will last for 14 days and will offer all of its games as DRM-free downloads (but not exclusively so; most games are also available on Desura and/or Steam ). For the first time ever, we will also be supporting Linux alongside Windows and Mac gaming.
Paying anything above $1.99 will get you:
- deep, retro-esque and utterly elegant RPG Phantasmaburbia (Windows/Desura)
- artful, being-stood-up-sim Dinner Date (Windows/Steam)
- undead infested puzzler Vampires! (Windows/Mac)
- illustrated interactive fiction exclusive debut Necrotic Drift Deluxe (Windows /Mac/Linux)
- beautiful puzzler exclusive debut Dédale De Luxe (Windows/Mac/Linux/Desura)
Beating the average price to grab four more cerebral games:
- sci-fi puzzle exploration adventure J.U.L.I.A. (Windows)
- hilarious boring-job-sim I Get This Call Every Day (Windows/Mac/Desura)
- Jane Jensen powered point-and-clicker Cognition, Episode 1: The Hangman (Windows/Mac/Desura)
- just released dystopian adventure Reversion: The Meeting (Windows/Desura)
By grabbing the Cerebral Bundle, you will also be supporting indie creativity via the Indie Dev Grant (for every 100 bundles sold $15 will be added to the grant), and the Hellenic Centre for Mental Health and Treatment of Child and Family. Oh, and you’ll be getting some rather amazing extras too; for every 1000 bundles sold new goodies will be unlocked for everyone who grabbed the Cerebral Bundle. Stuff like this:
- The source code of Necrotic Drift Deluxe.
- The Cognition soundtrack and prequel comic.
- Phantasmaburbia’s Deluxe Digital Box.
- Dédale De Luxe wallpapers and soundtrack.
- Music from Reversion.
As an added bonus, all who purchase the bundle will get access to exclusive content for Droidcape: Basilica; Kyttaro Games’ own upcoming, stop-motion animated, sci-fi, action-puzzle game for iOS and Android. And, yes, Droidscape is really close to release…
As already announced over at the BIAB Blog we have already started accepting submissions for the next Indie Dev Grant; oh, and have also announced the next Bundle In A Box offering. The Cerebral Bundle! Find out more here.
We haven’t been posting much lately for one simple reason: we are frantically working on Droidscape: Basilica and making sure it’s the best and most beautiful game it can be. You’ll also be happy to know that the game is progressing along beautifully after the first round of beta (late alpha to be precise) testing.
The final in-game graphics are looking spectacular, the stop-motion animated characters are almost finished, we’ve discovered a truly intriguing way to present you with the game’s rich story and setting and are currently busy with tweaking the gameplay and polishing everything up.
Oh, and you can now have a look at the work-in-progress final characters that will be used in the game; we have prepared a lovely facebook gallery for your enjoyment.
You may have noticed it, but we thought we’d officially let you know too and make sure: Droidscape: Basilica hasn’t been released just yet. Now we can also let you in on another little secret. The game is progressing beautifully, the BETA testers are loving it and it will be made available as a universal app for both iPhone and iPad within the next couple of months. The Android version will follow soon after that.
On the graphics front we have finally stopped working with place-holders and in-game iterations of the concept art (have a look at it over at facebook or google +) and are gradually finalizing everything and making sure Droidscape: Basilica looks fabulous. We are pretty confident that our stop-motion animated characters will be among the most beautiful on the App Store.
What you see above are the two first, work-in-progress pictures of the final Bishop 7 model our artist, Hariton Bekiaris, is currently building. Bishop 7 will be our main playable character and, quite obviously, a droid.
