Devlog #2



Hello again!

As some of you may know, we went to the BIG Festival 2018 last month. BIG Festival is an independent video game festival that takes place every year in São Paulo - Brazil. We had a booth there with a playable demo, so some of you guys were able to experience the game for the first time!

This was a great experience for us because we received a bucketload of really helpful feedback from you!




These were some of the crowdiest moments! Most of the players wanted to complete all the demo, which consisted of 3 levels and a boss, and even then, they’ve always wanted to play more to get all of the collectibles! This is really great because it demonstrated that we are on the right track.

This booth was only made possible by some of our amazing team members:

From the left: André(@andschaan) - Producer, Maurício(@BigPanDev) - Associate Producer and Daniel(@romanenco) - Lead Artist.

And now… announcements!

As promised in the previous Devlog, we’ve launched a new trailer! Check it out:

Tell us, which part of the trailer you liked most?

This one is for the completionists…



Our team finished the end-level screen! What do you guys think of it?

That’s it for this devlog!

Devlog #1


Kaze's Devlog #1

Hello!

We are making huge progress, and we thought it would be great if you guys could have some more information about the game, so we’ll start to post some devlogs/announcements from now on.

To get things started, we put together a tiny FAQ so you guys can know more about the current state of this project.

How finished is the game?
The game is about 55~60% finished. Most of the mechanics are implemented and working properly. At the moment we are doing a lot of code-refactoring inside of the Kaze scripts so everything plays out smoothly.

Metroidvania? Puzzles? Damage?
The game is a classic platformer like most of those played in the 90s, so it is not a Metroidvania.

There will be no puzzles in the game, you can expect a true platformer experience.

You can get hit 1 or 2 times before Kaze faints. We’ll explain how this is going to work “lorewise” later.




I think those were the questions most of you guys were asking at the moment, but if you have any more feel free to ask and we’ll reply as soon as possible.

And now, the fun part…

Here is what we’ve been working last weeks

Graphics/Art





We are working on new enemy sprites and animations!. What do you guys think of those? Please let us know!

Audio

Roadmap

“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 run ferociously like a tiger, cut the skies like an eagle and explore deep underwater like a shark!

A tribute to the bouncing and exploration formula.


Focusing on simple controls schema and challenging levels are the key elements that make it so unique in these modern days. But don’t fool yourself, the game challenges the curious and skilled players making it really difficult to beat.

A true love letter to the 90’s.


Kaze and the Wild Masks features a frame by frame modern pixel art graphics and a variety of colorful scenarios, that recovers the essence of 16-bit era and links the past and present generations.
