Super Turbo Demon Busters! vs. Odysseus Kosmos and his Robot Quest

Hi, guys!

As you may know, we have two different old school games in dev.



The first game is Odysseus Kosmos and his Robot Quest. A classic comedy quest about being geeky and procrastinative in space!

And the second game is Super Turbo Demon Busters! A rogue-like game about space troopers escaping from a planet filled with monsters, nuclear fire, viruses and ironic humor.

We think both games are great. They share pixel graphics (which is pretty cool), enthralling gameplay and sly humor. On the other hand, they are completely different, so we are interested - which game you like more.

To find it out, we decided to manage a GIVEAWAY for a game that the community will choose. VOTE for a game you like the most and remember - it's your privilege to decide which game will win the battle.

Here is the link:

Next Friday we will giveaway 50 Steam keys among the voters.

Thanks and stay tuned!

p.s. don't forget to wishlist the games, if you like them =)

Updated!



Princes and mercenaries!

After the game was released, we kept working hard. Today, we present the fruits of our labor.

A huge new map will unveil the Horde’s origin. We’ve added two scenarios to the game that allow you to play as the steppe people and rise from the chieftain of a remote tribe to a fierce Steppe Lord.

The “Riot” button in the corner has become even more useful: rebellious lands now cease any resistance and offer to join the player without a fight as soon as they are encountered. Conquer your enemies by instigating riots in their lands and get their armies with no losses.

The color scheme of the game is now fixed: map borders have a modest dark color now; friends and enemies are also color-coded and highlighted. Distinguishing friends from foes and neutrals has become much easier.

The event order in the log has become more straightforward: now you’ll see the events that demand your decisions first. Events themselves are now animated: for example, you can see an enemy general execution with your own eyes. A good reason to log in once more!



We also fixed a number of bugs based on the feedback you provided in the comments. Thank you for the support!

’Tis Time for War!

HARDCORE. TURN-BASED. WARHAMMER.

About This Game

Tactical digital board game in the world of Dark Ages!


Features

  • Six factions with unique generals and squads: the nimble nomads of the Horde, the well-armored and disciplined Imperial soldiers, the mad Normanna clad in furs, the League’s guilds wielding gunpowder, the proud knights of the Order, and the exotic cults of the Mesopotamia.
  • Over 50 types of squads based on real historical troops. No armored bikinis or spiked pauldrons here!
  • By surviving battles, your squads gain experience and develop their skills. Fresh recruits have nothing on a seasoned veteran.
  • Generals are the linchpin of a squad, and their skills and abilities can drastically change the outcome of a battle. Each general has a unique personality generated at the beginning of each game. Each has their own appearance, character traits, and abilities. It's impossible to predict who will appear the next go ‘round: a brave but simple knight, a talented but greedy tactical genius, or a bloodthirsty barbarian who instills fear in friend and foe alike.
  • A pantheon of chosen generals: put your greatest leaders here to re-use them from campaign to campaign, or hire legendary figures feared and revered throughout history, such as Joan of Arc and Genghis Khan.
  • The numerous scenarios offer a huge variety of different challenges: win a civil war, fight off nomads, deal with pirates raiding the coast, save a kingdom ravaged by plague, or crush a peasant uprising.
  • Battle formations: effective positioning of your troops is half the battle. Tactical tricks, feints, and ambushes are at your disposal. Win your battles through quality, not quantity.
  • Terrain and weather: even the perfect army may lose in unfavorable conditions. It’s generally a good idea to lure enemy cavalry into a bog, under your arrows – but remember that rain and fog make your archers useless.
  • Upgrade your soldiers’ weapons and armor at the royal forge.

Dark Ages is a turn-based strategy game set in the violent world of an alternate Middle Ages. Vikings against war elephants, musketeers against the Mongol cavalry, ancient phalanx legions against crusaders; the deadliest armies in history clashing in bloody war.
An army without leadership is merely a mob. In Dark Ages, troops follow the lead of their commanders: unique leaders with their own virtues, vices, talents, and weaknesses.
Take the throne of a small kingdom being torn apart by feuds and threatened by militant neighbors, and try to survive the Dark Ages.
