The game tells you a story about a hero named Kwin and his grandpa Vladimir Alstein. A story about facing an invasion of country of Barons into your homeland, about protecting your house and about the secrets lying under it.

Q: When would it be possible to try the alpha version?
AI can't be 100% sure, but there won't be an alpha version for testing at all. Well, there actually will be one, of course, but it will only be available to a small group of testers.

 

Q: How hardcore will the game be?
APretty hardcore starting from the mid-game, but the difficulty will rise gradually, not instantly.

 

QI would like to know: what inspired you to create such game and it's story?
AThere was no certain inspiration coming, we just wanted to create a game and started thinking up different scenarios in various worlds and settings and decided to use this one. We didn't really have anything certain in mind to relate on.

 

QAre you planning to release other games after this one?
AOw, we'd rather first think about finishing this one.

 

QOn which platforms will the game be available?
AFor now we're planning it for Windows, Mac and Linux

 

QWhich languages will be supported in the game?
AFor now we're only planning to use Russian and English. You can help us with the game localization if you know one of those languages and some others.

Update #1
 
 - There will be mini-bosses between big boss fights. They will be much stronger than usual enemies, but not as epic and brutal as big bosses. Defeating them will get Kwin a powerful part for weapon or armor upgrades. 
 Right now we are adding the first mini-boss.
Most of his animations are done. Walking animation and two of his attacks are processed and we are making his death animation right now. You can see his walking animation below.

We work every day, adding more and more new details into the game. 
 
- Here's a gif containing a part of battling our latest added enemy we call "Tentacle" because of his arms. He has two types of attack - long and short ranged. While attacking from short range, he hits the player with his tentacle-like arms. When Kwin is away from Tentacle, he launches his arms underground and ejects them right at Kwin's feet, spinning the blades on their end.

 - Animation of the very first Kwin's enemy - unicycle, which quickly rides to Kwin's house in kamikaze-like manner, exploding on arrival. The unicycle doesn't damager Kwin himself, but he moves very fast, thus forcing Kwin to catch him before the explosion and still keep an eye on other enemies at the same time.

- Even though all the steam in our game was drawn by hand, without using the particle system, we still experiment with effects.
On this animated gif you can see a test of steam generation from Kwin's backpack
We still most possibly will use drawn animation instead of partcles.

And for the last, two concept arts of new enemies:
 
- Powerful steam-bot that shoots a high-caliber rifle

- And a a soldier equipped with steam-armor, attacking with rapid multiple strikes using both arms.

That's it for now.
 We are now planning to post regular updates.
If you have any questions - ask away, we will attempt to respond to them all.
