Cannon Brawl blasts into Final Release!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V9qKU-pt11Q

Today is the big day, Cannon Brawl is now 1.0!

We’re really proud of what we’ve accomplished. Cannon Brawl is fun, looks fantastic, and explores new areas of design for strategy games. It’s everything we imagined it would be: full campaign, puzzle levels, and deep and competitive online multiplayer.

We've come a long way from the little prototype I made back in college. It won the Activision Independent Games Competition, which launched me and Theresa’s journey into full time indie game development as Turtle Sandbox. It was selected in the 2012 PAX 10, which helped get our name out there and was the first time we demoed it publicly. We launched our alpha in July of 2013 on Early Access, and today we’re now ready to call it done! Of course, we’ll still be supporting it with future patches and updates.

Huge thanks to everyone who played the Early Access builds, we got a ton of great feedback and it’s made the game better than we ever thought possible. It’s been great to have players who play the game at a higher level than we do and can help balance and tune in ways we couldn't have done on our own.

We’ll be streaming on Twitch from 12pm-8pm PST here: http://www.twitch.tv/cannonbrawlgame. Stop on by to join our celebration of launch day and see some exciting match ups in online multiplayer!

Chris Priestman - Indie Statik

About This Game

Get ready to play the next evolution of the artillery genre!

Cannon Brawl is an exciting mix of real time strategy and artillery gameplay. Command your airship to capture gold mines and build everything from cannons to lasers. Drop attack buildings from your airship, then pop into them to take skill shots at your opponent in real time. Upgrade each building to boost its devastating power. Advance across the kingdom in single player to unlock and discover new buildings, then experiment with each one to find your favorite combination in online multiplayer.

Choose from over fourteen buildings and five airship pilots (with more to come) for a huge variety of strategic combinations. Want to turtle up and launch big warheads from afar? You can! Want to rush to the high ground and launch a rain of missiles from above? You can! Try out tons of other strategies and crush your friends!

Cannon Brawl will challenge your ability to manage priorities, coordinate attacks and defenses, and focus through the madness of battle.

Early Access Review
A very addicting and well crafted game.

There aren't a lot of players online, so if you try to do ranked you will be mathched up vs either Gort or Watson, two ranked bots programmed into the game.

At first ranked will be easy as you climb the ladder, you only get a tiny amount of points for winningm but you lose billions of points for defeats, so If you play for an hour straight and only won, ONE DEFEAT WILL TAKE ALL OF IT AWAY.

Ranked needs to be fixed and ballancing might have to occur. Overall, there needs to be more players.

BUY THIS GAME but do yourself a favor and stay away from ranked until more people are active and the elo system is adjusted.

Early Access Review
Its somethinh very special because normally these kind of games ar turned based but this one isn't, what means that there's always something to do: booting up your shields, firing your tons of difrent type of turrets or extending your territory. games can be fast past with armor breatching attacks or can be very stratigic and extremly exciting. the only thing i hope from this game is that when it finishes it doesn't become on of the many pay-to-win games, please developers don't do microtransactions.

Cannon Brawl is worth buying if you've enjoyed playing the Worms franchise over the years, and are looking for something new added to the formula.

Very fun, highly recommend for same-screen competitive battling. Sort of a light RTS mixed with tower-trajectory style gameplay. It's not super deep but I easily got my time and money's worth.
