EBF Art and Music competition!

Hey guys.

Me and Tom Fulp from Newgrounds.com have teamed up to do a fanart and music remix competition! As you should know, NG is where the EBF series started, a very long time ago.

Here’s Tom’s post about the competition:

May 1st is the 10 Year Anniversary of Epic Battle Fantasy on Newgrounds and Epic Battle Fantasy 5 recently released on Steam. To celebrate the occasion, we’re hosting a fan art and music remix contest here on NG!

To participate in the art contest, create Epic Battle Fantasy fan art, tag it with “Epic-Battle-Fantasy” and upload it to the Newgrounds Art Portal by May 1st.

To participate in the music contest, remix any of the songs from the Epic Battle Fantasy series 2-5 (when Phyrnna was making the music), tag it “Epic-Battle-Fantasy” and upload it to the Audio Portal by May 1st.

Entries will be judged by Matt, Phyrnna, Ronja, and the NG office.

The ten best fan arts and three best music remixes will receive Steam keys (Windows only) for EBF5, EBF4, Bullet Heaven 2 and the EBF5 soundtrack.

Tom doesn’t mention it in his post, but generally in contests like this you have to make art/music specifically for the contest – otherwise we’d have hundreds of submissions from earlier! So please don’t enter anything made before today!

You can read the original post here.

In other news, I'm slowly getting back to work on EBF5, and I've recently posted some more new enemies on my website.

Working on EBF5 v2

Hey guys. I'm working on new dungeons and content for Epic Battle Fantasy 5, which is what I promised to do if the game's launch was successful. It's a big update, so it's not going to be finished any time soon. Until then, you can follow updates on my website. There's already a few new enemies shown there. I haven't planned everything out yet, but it's likely the update will include 3 new dungeons, lots of bosses/minibosses, new flairs, and challenge modes.

In related news, I'm doing a foe design competition for EBF5! I'm looking for pixel art monster designs which I may use in the game, so you should check it out if that sounds interesting. Here are the details.

About This Game

Epic Battle Fantasy 5 is an over-the-top turn-based RPG adventure, full of video game references, juvenile dialogue, and anime fanservice (...and also strategic combat, monster catching, and tons of treasure hunting - if you're into any of those.)

If you're new to the series, this is a good place to start, and if you've played the other games, there's plenty of new features for you to explore.

Epic Battle Fantasy 5 features...

  • Over 170 different enemies to fight, all with unique abilities and attack patterns.
  • Over 120 usable skills, and more equips than you can try out in a single playthrough.
  • Almost any enemy can be captured like a Pok*mon, and later summoned in battle. (including bosses!)
  • New mechanics also include weather conditions and a cooldown system. (MP is gone!)
  • Set up devastating combos with damage-amplifying status effects. (wet + thunder = massive damage!)
  • 30 hours of gameplay, plus lots of optional dungeons and challenges.
  • Suitable for both casual and hardcore RPG players, and is safe for all ages, if offensive content is disabled.

Epic Battle Fantasy 5 does NOT feature...

  • Annoying random battles.
  • Limited save points.
  • Depressed protagonists.
  • Points of no return.

System Requirements

    • OS: Windows 7
    • Processor: 2.3 GHz Dual Core (or better for higher settings)
    • Memory: 2 GB RAM
    • Graphics: Doesn't matter much
    • Storage: 300 MB available space
    • Additional Notes: Game can be played with mouse only
