Secret footage

The origin of Skeletoonians:

In a distant future. Humans are long gone.

Earth now belongs to the most unlikely robot life form imaginable…The Skeletoonians live for as long as their bodies can hold voltage. When they run out, they go into a state of hibernation. A never ending search for voltage drives the Skeletoonians to dig up the past…

We are producing a Hero Blocks video series about the Skeletoonians, watch it on our YouTube channel – Click here

Skeletoonians were announced Worldwide in 2035 as an advanced robot-toy. The Skeletoonian shipped with several programs to help children clean their rooms, assist with homework, and provide entertainment to relieve busy parents.

Soon every household had at least one Skeletoonian. That’s when the glitches began. One family reported that their Skeletoonian kept stacking every single object perfectly in one room. Another claimed that their two Skeletoonians dressed up as forest animals and started fighting each other. All owners stated that the Skeletoonians copied human body language, recreating everyday situations. The Skeletoonians were pulled from the shelves and left alone in warehouses around the World until one day…

Devlog 03 - Major updates!

News

20689980 1880344732284032 231512

Quite a big post if I should cover everything from the last few months of development.
We are on the right path in terms of game- play design and production. Its tough, but that is indie game development in a nutshell, and we love it!

Biggest news is that we nailed the back-end, making it possible to play minimum 10 vs 10 without any lag issues, even with a quite high ping. Amazing stuff.

I personally believed in our team since day 1, but trust me, I have had many sleepless nights along the way. Just ask my wife. Apart from snoring like a bulldozer, she had to cope with me turning 10 times a minute…

Next stop is Gamescom in Cologne next week, and we are thrilled to show off new stuff, and feel free to ping me for coffee or beer! We want to celebrate the breakthrough.

Here is a glimpse of how we keyframe animate our very stylized characters, trying to give them alot of personality. Its still WIP and the map is temporary for test purposes.

Feel free to sign up as an alpha tester, we need as many hands as possible as its many vs many multiplayer: Hero Tester
