New Game + Super Chibi Official Trailer

2014-02-10 18:18:14 by BoMToons

Luis, Genclops, and I just released "Labyrinth: Secrets of ShadowHaven" here on NG!

Play it here!

It was a lot of fun to work on, was slightly experimental for me, and has been pretty well received. We've already started discussing some ideas to improve on it for a sequel... maybe something 16 bit????

I previously mentioned that I'm planning a Kickstarter campaign (coming soon) for Super Chibi Knight to help raise enough cash so I can focus on it full time for a couple months and finish it off. It's at the point where it needs a solid streak of dedicated work to push it to the finish line and I need some cash to be able to do that. I've been cobbling together a Kickstarter video and, as part of it, I did a new trailer for the game. Check it out here:


I also updated my main website to be more than just a landing page, to impress people who visit from the KS campaign ha ha!




So tell me:

1) What did you think of Labyrinth?

2) How is the new Super Chibi Knight video?

3) How does the new PestoForce site look?

1: I loved Labyrinth but the fact if you died you had to restart the whole level is a major turn off but thats my only complaint. I love the music and im kind've tempted to make an orchestral cover of it. Dunno yet.

2: Badass trailer! :D

3: Pretty good! I wonder if experimenting with purple borders on the icons would make it more appealing though. Haha favorite pastas? I love it!

BoMToons responds:

1. Yeah, perma-death is kind of a staple of the Roguelike genre, I understand that it can be frustrating tho.

2. Nice! Thanks!

3. I considered putting borders around the content, but I like the clean crisp hard edge there without too much clutter.

1:30 trailer better I think for kickstarter sadly :( Maybe include some of the cut stuff in a separate video. Or include one of the speed paints.

BoMToons responds:

Yeah, I've cut it down to 1:20 for the KS.

Good call shortening it down for the Kickstarter. Looks great man! The game looks 100x bigger than I would have imagined. Glad to see you pursuing something bigger than browser games. I definitely pick this one up once it is released. Good luck man!

BoMToons responds:

I hope you'll pre-order it through the KS campaign ;-)

Yeah, the game is really big. It's pushing my limits on many levels, which is why I'd like to be able to focus on it and really knock it out of the park.

I'll always love making browser games, but I need to try my hand at the big leagues just to fulfill some life-long goals.
