Enter the Thermocrats

They are here. The heroic, technologically advanced and oppressive Thermocrats are now part of the game. It took a few good months to get all the animations in place, but this time we bested ourselves and came up with 7 new units for the game.

Myosian Miscellaneous Extravaganza!

07

Updating the blog is hard!. So here’s a bunch of small updates, because we have A LOT of loose files going around, specially images that we can’t really place in a full blown, dignified blog post, but that will give our fanbase (our moms?) something to check.

Because there’s nothing worst than an indie studio that doesnt update often.

Enjoy a little combat

I finally got around to upload some work in progress videos.

First off is our grunt combat. These are a few of our finished sprites smashing each other to bits and just showing our combat engine off. I walk through our different stances that a unit can be placed into also. Youtube thought it would be a good idea to add some extra light to this video so it’s a little bright.

The second video shows off the special attacks of two of our Slayers. They are not finished sprites, but the special abilities are fully functional. We have some buffing abilities, a summoning ability, a charge attack, a ranged area of effect, an instant area of effect, and one that adds special damage to the slayers weapon.

Hope you enjoy!

Terrain concept art!

 

Hey everyone, Petunio here for another Art Update on Cairn.

So one thing is the units we are making for the game, another is the tiling that will go under the units. Originally we were working with another artist on the tiles, and for the most part his tiling skills were pretty good, but the contrast between what he did and the units in the game was a bit lacking, partially because he was working the terrain tiles without knowing how the units would look like.

I offered to do the tiles since I thought I could do a much better worklooking for the right contrast between units and terrain since they would both be developed by the same person (The Petunio, that is).

Praetorian Concept Art for Cairn

Praetorians are the most respected of leaders in all the Empire’s army.  Given command of the most state of the art equipment they are held to a very high standard and many collapse under the pressures of their responsibility. White hot flames burst  from crevices of their Lorica armor, few can bare the heat when standing toe to toe with a Praetorian.  Their short swords licked by alchemical fires possess the ability to slash and burn through any enemy troops”

We have a lot of concepts for Cairn that we haven’t been able to share until now. The reason for this lack of updates has to do with the death of our artist Rodrigo Petunio and his widow not wanting to kick them over to Embalmit. But after a lengthy and expensive court battle we finally came to settlement after we paid a hobo 50 bucks to break into her house and steal them for us.

Well… the real reason is much more boring though: we’ve been a bit lazy and/or busy with other things and haven’t got around publishing them, so none of that actually happened (maybe the hobo part). Plus you know, I’m still alive and stuff.
