Concursion Featured in Humble Weekly Bundle!!

Holy poopsmith! Have you heard?

Concursion is currently in this week's Humble Weekly Bundle!!

We, along with all our Mastertronic-published bro-friends are sharing a Pay What You Want Bundle for Seven Whole Days!

That means, for the price of your choice (a penny, a dollar, or a novelty oversized plastic check), you get 14 games, all at once, to gorge yourself upon. (We're hoping for the giant check...)
Steam Keys, DRM-Free downloads... whatever you like.

Plus, a share of the proceeds go to some awesome charities.

In celebration of this (we think) momentous occasion, we think it's a good time to hype our FIRST TRAILER for our upcoming game... "The Weaponographist"!

A Trailer, I Said!

As you can probably tell, this is a pretty cool day for us.

Hooray!

About This Game

Dark Lord Biganbad has - sigh - once again kidnapped the princess. But this time his evil schemes have gone too far and torn open a number of rifts between realities.

You start where most platformers finish at the bad guy’s castle and run, jump, fly, fight and occasionally dance through the kingdom on your quest to unearth the truth behind these rifts and put a stop to Biganbad, once and for all.

Key features include:


  • Say no to stereotypes - From start to finish, your knowledge of traditional platformers will be flipped on its head.
  • Five classic gameplay genres - Explore the worlds of platformer, shooter, hack-n-slash, jetpack and maze racer/puzzlers with no loading screens or wait times.
  • More genres – Additional genres are explored in boss fights.
  • Evolving soundtrack -Emmy-nominated composer Christopher Hoag (House M.D.) has created five variants of each song, cross-blended between worlds.
  • Fusion play - Radically different game mechanics are employed in quick succession.
  • Unique worlds - Each world is defined by its unique art and music, meaning you’ll always know whether you’re in Cartoonland, outer space or even feudal Japan.
  • Control mapping - Five unique styles of play mapped to the same buttons, meaning you’re always in control.

What's not to love about this game?

Old school epic multi genre platformer. Don't be fooled by the time I've spent playing as there are a ton of "off the books" hours logged in the demo. The game is fantastic but the leader boards make it nearly impossible to put down. Just gotta improve by a tenth .. come on .. let me restart i know i can do it. Faster .. faster .. keep trying and now holy crap I spent the whole weekend on one level.

Love it!

This game has everything you would expect from a good platformer and more! It blends together different styles of platformer styles seamlessly and in a way that doesn't leave you confused about what is going on. I highly reccomend this game for anyone that enjoys playing platformers!

Typically I'm terrible at games like these...It's just the truth..but I enjoy playing this due to its quickness and slightly addictive rush... Concursion is an attempt at thinking of the platformer in a new way and that's something I can get behind...While it may seem difficult because you aren't used to the cookie cutter games of how current games are built, Concursion feels and looks completely original....Also the music is awesome..I'm super into that retro sound...and it just sounds perfect...plus I love that when you die...the music doesn't cut off and restart, it's constantly flowing.. I hope more people will give it a chance, I would completely recommend this game.

Concursion suprised me how fun it is. The story is nothing special. The gameplay is very interesting because it could dhange 5 times in one level so you are never to sure whats gonna happen. The controls are good. As you progress with the game the levels become more interesting with them changing *universes* and there is a big variety of enemies. The story has quite a lot of levels to play trough and you will get frustrated and also enjoy them. There are 5 characters and it's more like 5 games in 1 then 5 different characters. Also the replayability of the game is really good if you want to get the gold time, get the best time on the leaderboards, collect all the gems. Graphics ain't the best but they aren't that bad. I would recommend the game but I think it would be better to buy it on sale.

Clever idea, poor execution.

PROS:
-Clever idea
-Good number of levels
-Good use of cross-genre in level design (but hindered by mediocre controls)

NEUTRAL:
-Mediocre controls ( tight aerial acrobats? more like frustration waiting to happen)
-Mediocre art (I don't know if it is bad necessarily, but I really did not care for it)

CONS:
-Awkward speed and pacing
-Mediocre execution of selling point
-Nothing is new or altered here; expect VERY simple and classic mechanics in each of the 5 genres presented (but the use of these simple mechanics in level design is relatively well done)

Extremely generic game types. Apparently you get to experience all 5 in the first game world, which reallly doesn't impress much. There is nothing "turned on its heads" as the description claims; the 5 game types are executed in the simplest most traditional ways possible.
-Mario platformer (jump on enemy heads)
-Ninja platformer (run, double jump, slash)
-Side scrolling shooter (dodge basically since your gun range is so short)
-A "flying" jetpack platformer (you fly and have to avoid everything, but for some odd reason you can't walk...)
-Pacman (literally, collect the dots)

The differences between the game types are extremely minimal since each game type has barely 1 game mechanic in it.

Mediocre controls and slow gameplay make this one a pass.
