Blood will be Spilled is a narrative spaghetti western platformer with tactical turn-based combat, taking place in a completely hand drawn harsh world inhabited by insects.

story

You follow the story of Jack - a mosquito bounty hunter, on his path of revenge. Soon however, he finds himself neck-deep in a vicious scheme that is far more than he bargained for. Heavily outgunned and outnumbered, Jack will need help from a few rather unusual allies to even the odds. In the land with no laws, from deserted anthills and dusty mines, through badland battlefields to treacherous swamps, he's on a hunt for the Calaveras gang. And they are wanted alive...or dead.

  • Epic adventure of blood and revenge, featuring guns, explosives, trains and insects (with even more guns!)
  • With a narrator, accompanying you through the story
  • Jack is voiced by legendary Elias Toufexis (Adam Jensen from DeusEx)
  • Outstanding cast of more than 15 fully voiced and rather peculiar characters
  • Fully hand drawn visuals in a distinct comic book style

features

  • Classic side-scrolling action in a charming handcrafted world of “the Wild West with an insect twist”
  • Tactical turn-based shoot-outs - always outgunned, use every advantage and dirty trick to get an edge over your enemies: Hide behind covers, exploit the environment, suck the blood of your enemies and make sure that you're the last bug standing
  • Use 12 active and 3 passive abilities in 3 different paths - The Good, The Bad or The Ugly, and dispose of your enemies with a ricochet, a shotgun or a shovel
  • Pack 7 magnificent revolvers, inspired by western classics, that'll fill your enemies with enough lead they would probably die of poisoning if only the shots didn't kill them first
  • Battle 9 types of enemies - from ferocious mites, nasty fly-banditos, aggressive wasp-sharpshooters to crooked cockroach brawlers and explosive bugs
  • Face 4 sinister gang leaders with bounties on their heads - will you drag them back to town alive or dead?
  • Scattered secrets and hidden collectibles for explorers and treasure hunters to find
  • Beautiful acoustic soundtrack that pays tribute to the old classics of the genre

I loved it, everything was great, the story, the artwork, the introduction, the voice over, the graphics...then watching the gameplay...I felt let down.

Thank you very much for the feedback. :) We are still pretty deep in development, so if you had a little more time, could you be more specific about what was it the you particularly didn't like? Thank you!

The story feels so epic, remembering the old westerns, the drama and passion that went into making them, looking at your game, I can tell you have the same passion as they did. But it just feels a platformer cannot deliver all the drama, action and excitement of those old westerns. While I have no idea exactly what kind of game could, maybe Im just remembering the my youth and getting defensive as it makes me want more, more then any developer could ever create. Of course this is a very immediate feeling from only seeing the barest bones of gameplay, your game could have it all and we just have not seen it yet.
That and the jumping, the jumping kinda looks like he just started floating up into the air.

Thank you for taking the time to elaborate. We really try to incorporate as many spaghetti western elements into the gameplay as possible, though there are also some things that are probably expected from platformers. We love the genre too and try to do them justice. :)
We should have a public playable demo ready in a month or so, maybe you can try It out then and see how you feel about it. And yeah, we're already fixing the jumping, we hated it too. But thanks again for the feedback, we really appreciate it.

I'm a sucker for westerns and anthropomorphic things. Looks good so far!
