WINNER WINNER CARROT DINNER?



During the spooky days of October, we’ve participated in the Games Festival of SBGames 2018. SBGames is a yearly event focused on the Brazilian game development scene; one of its main features is its games festival, in which Brazilian indie games are played and evaluated by industry veterans. It’s like the Oscars but for Brazilian indie games!
In 2017, we were nominated for Best Visual Art category...
This year, we were nom- WE WON TWO AWARDS!
We were nominated for both Best Game & Best Visual Art and we won. Twice.




These are trophy mugs, which make them even MORE USEFUL than an Oscar! (We’re with you Josef Fares!)

This is absolutely amazing, and of course, it wouldn’t have been possible without all of the support you have given us so far. Thank you so much!
This award only reinforces our commitment to releasing the best game possible to all of you.

DEVELOPMENT UPDATE

New Air Glide animation



We gave Kaze’s glide a new spin.
With the new animation, it’s much easier to follow Kaze’s position precisely while also making the glide more distinct from the ground spin attack, which will help with kazes where players mistook one for the other. What do you think?

Enemies
Are you up to date with the new amount of enemies our game will have? No? Then let’s get to it:

Onion Mole
When it comes to designing new enemies, we certainly know our onions.


Helmet Beet
This enemy is unbeetable, but you may use it to your advantage!


Flaming Pumpkin
NYAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH - Don’t get close or you'll burn!


SINGLE LEVEL PLAYTHROUGH

Devlog #3



And here we are again!

A lot of cool stuff happened in the last month, and as always, we are working super duper hard to finish the project and deliver to you guys a truly 90s classic platformer game but also expanding this experience with present-day features...

So here are today’s headlines...

WE ARE FINALISTS!



We have been selected as finalists in the Strasbourg Indie Game Contest that will start in the 15 of September along with the Strasbourg Film Festival! Kaze will be available to play there during the week, so if you live nearby you should definitely check it out! Other really cool games will also be available to play there so if you’re into Indie Gaming this is a really interesting event to attend!

MORE COOL FEATURES AND LEVELS



You’ll encounter some fun objects to interact within the levels. The one above (we are currently calling it the Jellyspring) will act as a “spring” that will help you jump higher and gain momentum!

And below is our sling/catapult/gearing thing(please suggest a better name for us!). This object can automatically launch Kaze reeeeally fast in its target direction. There will also be variations of this object where you can control the directions where you can go and only launch it after pressing a button!

Note that both of these are WIP assets that are subject to change and doesn’t represent the final product.



DEVELOPMENT STREAMS!



As some of you may know, we’ve created a Twitch account and are starting to stream the development process of the game. Last week’s stream was with our artist creating enemy animations!
We don’t have a fixed stream schedule yet but we’ll try to do it regularly if we feel that you guys are enjoying it! So head over to http://twitch.tv/kazewildmasks and follow us to know when the next stream happens and with that also encourage us to do more frequent streams!

Aaand that’s it for now!

Reviews

“Kaze and the Wild Masks reminds us of the golden age of 16-bit graphics and platforms of the 90's.”

About This Game



In Kaze and the Wild Masks, our bunny needs to become a hero when a comet strikes the normally-peaceful Carrotland, turning its plants into enraged living forms, bringing chaos around the place.

Invoke the powers from ancient heroes.


The Wild Masks unleash skills from the legendary guardians of Carrotland. Kaze will pounce ferociously like a tiger, soar through the skies like an eagle and rule the sea like a shark!

A true love letter to the vivid bounciness of the 90’s


Kaze and the Wild Masks features a frame by frame modern pixel art graphics and a variety of colorful scenarios that appeal to past and present generations by bringing the essence of 16-bit bouncy crispiness up to modern standards.

Engaging gameplay out of simple mechanics


The focus on intuitive, accessible mechanics that when mixed together create complex challenges for players through fun and fresh interactions, instead of precise inputs and dexterity, is the key element that makes Kaze and The Wild Masks so unique in these modern days.
