John Mad Run - free iOS prequel for just-Greenlit indie pixel-art scroll-shooter Joan M...

10 April 2014 - 09:43 AM

Hey guys!

Yesterday our indie team Happymagenta released a free iOS scroll-shooter  John Mad Run.

This game is a prequel for our great project, which we are working on for quite a time already - Joan Mad Run. On April 4th Joan was Greenlit, so soon you'll be able to play it on many different platforms.

But in order to let everyone feel a bit of the atmosphere and prepare for the great battle, we created a free version with an alternate character John. The game has a brutal male character, 2 new locations and 5 manly weapons. Oh, and no IAP! smile.png

We are planning to make John an alternate character for the PC/Mac/Linux versions of Joan Mad Run. So he's not just a passer-by. 

Compared with project Joan, John Mad Run presents bloody minimalism. But still it's a tough and challenging game, that will require insane dexterity, if you'd like to survive.

And here are some screenshots and gifs for the main project Joan Mad Run:

John Mad Run is available on the App Store since yesterday - absolutely FREE!

I really hope that you'll give it a try and let me know what you think!



 


Joan Mad Run - take your enemies to hell, literally!

Hey everyone! yeah.gif 

 

I'd like to share with you the project, that our team is working on at the moment - Joan Mad Run.

 

We started working on Joan half a year ago and first wanted to make it for iOS only. And the mission is almost complete - 90% ready. However, when we started to share the game, lots of people got really excited about the project. And we also got many requests to deliver the game to other platforms too. So we decided to make an Android version as well as PC, Mac and Linux. That's why we are testing our luck on Steam Greenlight and your support is extremely important for us! Please, read the story, watch the gameplay trailer and if you like what you see, please support us!

 

Each vote is precious!

 

 

About the game

 

Joan Mad Run is a pixel-art gory fight-to-the-death run’n’gun, that takes your enemies straight to hell. Literally. 

Imagine that you wake up in a ward cell...you don't know why you are here, you can't tell who you are...but the only thing you are certain of is that you have to get out to find out the truth. Even if that means destroying everything on your way. 


When there is noone you can trust, you can trust your guns. Luckily, you will have plenty. So you get an amazing chance to satisfy your bloodlust by burning your enemies alive, melting them with acid, chopping them and watching their blood spurt like geyser, striking them with lightning, exploding them, squeezing them like bugs or sending them directly to the blazing inferno.

Beware of deadly traps, callous scumbags and grisly bosses, craving for your blood:

Use mighty power-ups to make your fight to the death less exhausting. Watch the Bloodlust and Ultra Boost:

[iOS] Joan Mad Run - bloody indie scroll shooter for pixel lovers

23 August 2013 - 03:21 AM

Hello, everyone!smile.png

 

We, Happymagenta team, are really excited to share with you the new game we are working on right now - Joan Mad Run!

Imagine that you wake up in a jail cell... you don't know how you got here, you can't tell who you are...no memories, no stuff...no nothing. The only thing you know for sure is that to find out the truth you have to get out...even if the only way to do that is to destroy everything on your way.

Your life is at stake. So will you just give up or take the challenge and fight until your very last breath? 

Meet Joan and see how far lust for truth can lead you.

The game is still in its early stage of development and everyday we create something new to make it even more enjoyable for you. 
We thought of many ways of showing Joan's current health condition and decided to use an avatar that shows how Joan feels and whether she uses some power up or ability. It also displays ammo levels and cool down times for both the primary and the secondary weapon shots. 

Have a look at the animated picture below and trace Joan's condition from absolutely healthy to then getting Bloodlust power up, receiving damages and finally dying.

Prepare for seas of blood since your escape would be far from easy.

And for now we just hope that you will enjoy the screenshots of some of the locations and of course bosses.

 

Here is the first one - Jonny Bot zombie-mummy:

And here is the brain tank. Scary, isn't it?

We also prepared some power-ups, utilities and missions, so have a look.

 

Ultra boost lets you quickly pass through the level:

And here are some awesome utilities: Resurrection and Last Word. If you choose the former you'll get an extra life. Choosing the latter will turn you into the death ghost, letting you fly a bit more through the level and suck blood and sould out of your enemies:

Here comes the mission accomplished notice (you killed 10 enemies in 1 run)+ double kill combo (which gives you extra coins). And you can also see how the incredibly evil laser flare works:

This was only a small amount of what we want to share. New locations, new bosses, new guns and new challenge are waiting for you! So stay with us and we will surprise you.

Your opinion is crucial for us, so if you have any thoughts, ideas or wishes about the game (even the craziest ones), feel free to let them out! They are heartly welcome!

Please share your ideas about who Joan is or just anything you have to say in the comments below.
