Magic Pixels > Time for a fresh week!

Posted 20 July 2014

I spent the majority of the week polishing design, although that pretty much amounted to ability naming and drafting our final HUD design and functionality. Until you sit down and try to name 120 abilities and make them all both represent the action as well as sound interesting, you don't really realize the amount of time and effort this takes!

Magic Pixels > Evolution of Icons

Posted 16 July 2014

Magic Pixels > We announced Empyrios our strategy RPG!

Posted 04 July 2014

We're a tiny studio and we finally found the time (well made the time by staying up about 50 hours straight) to finalize our site and announce our upcoming strategy RPG Empyrios for the iPad/Mac/PC platforms. Also I saw a posting by GDNet on facebook regarding being in the banner, and I'm hoping to get some consideration as three long time community membe...
