I find it hard to believe that I am finally writing this particular blog entry. A blog entry about the release of our first mobile game GLADIATOR BASTARDS! I am also pretty excited with the game! It has fast paced action, it is has responsible controls via virtual controls (which is quite an achivement considering that this game is played by touch screen) and a twist of crude humour. I think it is safe to say that it is at least the best finnish made tournament fighting game. To our knowledge, Elfmania was the previous one.
Oh man! It took us a little under couple of years to create this tournament fighting game from scratch. You might think that it is pretty long time to spend on one mobile game and basically it is, but keep in mind that almost everything that we did was learned during the progress.
The new beta release of GLADIATOR BASTARDS is coming out this September!
The jolly guys of Frak have been laying low for the summer. We even had a chance to spend some holiday time to relax and charge those game making batteries. However, we've not been completely slacking out. The new beta release of GLADIATOR BASTARDS is coming out this September!
Damn! It has certainly been a while since the last blog update! The last time we blogged (almost nine months ago!!), our game was only a fraction or less of what it stands today. Even the name has been changed since. Our tournament fighting game is now called Gladiator Bastards: The Champions of Caligula!
There has been some major changes to gameplay. For instance, we no longer have a single provocateur in the game but six! We also gave up chapter based story structure and focus on character based fast paced tournaments.
For the most part of the year 2014, Frak was prototyping and learning new techniques about what we could do on mobile platforms and also in the realm of virtual reality. But now the time has come to come out of the closet and introduce the world to our fighting game project that is steaming ahead at an enormous speed!
The game is called PROVOCATOR (work title). It is a 2D tournament fighting game for iOS and Android devices. The game is based on Universal Fighting Engine (UFE) but Provocator is more than just your average tournament fighter. It is a fighting game with a solid storyline and with some RPG elements!
