After 3.5 years of hard work we feel super excited and happy - May 10th was the day when Blazing Beaks v1.0 has been released on Steam and Nintendo eShop!!!
For this occasion you can check our new release trailer:
We want to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who played the game, gave us cool ideas, suggestions, spread a word about the game and helped to make Blazing Beaks a better game.
Blazing Beaks full version came out with an awesome update. One and the most anticipated part in the Story mode was missing, but now we added it - the game has an ending.
Also after our last dev blog some new features were added as well, so let’s get into more details.
We introduced Daily Runs feature into the game. Players can compete with each other in newly generated run everyday. Each daily run can be played only once and most of unlockables cannot be unlocked in this mode. Daily run can be played in co-op mode too.
Players get ranked by the total score they accumulate in the end of the run. And here's more detailed information on how the score is calculated:
- 10 POINTS for every opened chest;
- 30 POINTS for every deal in the shop (artefacts/items exchange, weapon purchase, reviving co-op player);
- For every picked up artefact, it’s RISK VALUE IS MULTIPLIED BY 100 and that’s the amount of points the player gets (for example: artefact risk value 0.3 means that player gets 30 points);
- Player gets the amount of points equal to killed ENEMY OR BOSS STARTING HP;
- And the most important thing is MULTIPLIER. The more artefacts player has in possession, the higher multiplier is.
Blazing Beaks Character Editor
One additional cool feature in the game is character mods. Players can create their own characters with different starting weapon, ability and statistics.
We also updated Blazing Beaks Characters Editor and added all the weapons that are currently in the game to it. Editor is included in Blazing Beaks package and you can find in under Tools section in your Steam Library. As usually, you can also download it from our website: Blazingbeaks.com
Blazing Beaks Soundtrack
We got a lot of great feedback about the music in the game. So we created a DLC of Blazing Beaks Soundtrack. It includes all area tracks as well as boss fight tracks and theme, shop songs. Soundtrack was composed by incredibly talented Ivo Sissolak (Twitter: @Mexicanopiumdog).
Here’s the full tracklist:
01 - Birds with Guns
02 - Gooey Nest
03 - Gravy Yard
04 - Feather Sale
05 - Beaks Unite!
06 - Maroon Leaves
07 - No Bird's Land
08 - Dungeon Crawler
09 - Grey Skies
10 - Dark Matters
11 - Flightless
