    Hi everyone, this is this official thread for our new upcoming game BLOODY EPIC!

    I'm with Tio Atum, a new indie developer based in Portugal. We used to be called Fakepup and made Super Bit Bash, if you ever heard of it :p

    We are here to announce our new game, due in November. It will be a slasher with plenty of blood and bits :D

    Intro
    Bloody Epic is about slashing, cutting and maiming the enemies of the kingdom. It's a story of a convict turned hero, a sadist turned savior!

    NEW PIC

    Here's a first concept.

    We wanted to do something different from our previous games, something more gory and silly.

    [​IMG]
    Super early screenshot.

    It's all in black and white because I'm terrible with color, so for prototypes and early dev I like to forget about color and just focus on game play.

    [​IMG]
    Here's a concept of the main character

    What you can expect from Bloody Epic:

    • Gory deaths
    • Cool animations
    • Natural touch gameplay (no d-pads)
    • Epic Boss fights
    • Customization - armour, hats, swords, etc...
    • a cathartic zen like experience :p

    I'll keep posting updates. We already started putting in color and new enemies and might have some animations to share soon. Stay tunned.

    Also fell free to follow us @tioatum or Facebook

    Oh, and if you have a friend with an Android device, check out our first game on Google Play as Tio Atum, Fruit Monkeys ;)

    How could it not have Game Center Achievements? :) It's pretty easy to add really, and super fun, so yes. Achievements will happen for sure.

    Meet The Grunt

    Hey everyone,

    Another update on Bloody Epic. We’ve been putting in the final colors on some enemies and tweaking animations.

    [​IMG]
    We wanted to share a bit of the process, from paper to final art. We sketch quite a bit before we get the right silhouette. We want to make sure the character conveys the right feeling. Not to cute, not to gruesome, somewhat pathetic.

    We have 3 more enemy types now, we’ll show them to you later this week. Or maybe we’ll go straight to the level art, who knows :)

    Or just tell us what you want to see and we’ll see what we can do ;)

    Boss character update

    Thanks! Glad you liked SBD.

    Here's an update on Bloody Epic!

    [​IMG]

    This will be the first boss in the game. I was going to animate it but then i had to make some levels to test some stuff out, so I will probably get to it next week.


    Today I've been mostly working on concepts and should post something new tomorrow. Oh, and why aren't you all subscribing to this thread? It's going to have everything! :p

    Devlog Update - GRUNT GENERAL

    Thanks everyone!

    Here's a new character from Bloody Epic to keep the devlog alive.

    [​IMG]

    This is the Grunt General, he leads the troops into battle but quickly exits the scene as soon as things get rough. It'll take a lot of running, but he will get what he deserves eventually (a slash to the back handed out by gamers everywere :p)

    What do you thing? I'm working on his facial expressions now so I might show you his different faces in a while.

    He's kinda half roman legionar half luchador. Hope it doesn't ruin the games vibe but we'll see when we get him in motion soon.

    Added expressions to characters

    Another update on our toucharcade Dev Log!

    We've just finished adding expressions to the baddies. Now the frown when they are hit and have a dead face as well.

    [​IMG]

    The commander has an extra facial expression for his cowardly run.

    Right now I'm working on UI stuff. Before I began I kinda wanted to get a sense of the true color pallete of the first stages so I exprerimented a bit the the tones of the scene.

    Getting the right colors can be dificult, especially because there's no such a thing as the right colors, only ones you like more than others...

    [​IMG]

    I wonder if the above pic will destroy the Forum's layout :p

    Well, this is it for today. Really wanted to show you some moving pictures. Gotta render out some trully bloody scenes.

    ALL YOUR FEEDBACK IS BELONG TO US!

    Give it please :D

    It's been a while since the last update so here's a video for you enjoyment. We already have some zombies to show but we'll get to them latter in the week. :)



    So, what do you think of our first boss character?

    Vote on The game's name!

    [​IMG]

    Here's the latest screenshot of our upcoming game. We're hard at work tweaking and testing right now.

    We still haven't decided on the name so we are asking gamers what would they like it to be. We narrow it down to 5 choices.

    • Bloody Blade
    • Bloody Epic
    • King Carnage
    • Carnage Knight
    • Bloody Paladin

    What do you think it should be? Vote on the comments or head down to our facebook page to vote www.facebook.com/TioAtum

    We'll give away Super Bit Bash promocodes to the voters :)

    Appstore ready!

    [​IMG]

    It's almost here! 5 months of hard work and pixelated blood!

    It's been a long time brewing but if all goes well Bloody Epic should reach the Appstore and Google Play later next week!


    [​IMG]

    We want to share with you some new pics from the game. IT'S SO CLOSE! We are so exited. There's so much we didn't get to show you guys and gals, but we've been very very busy. We're only a 2 people :)


    [​IMG]

    Oh, so just that you know, this boss fight is kinda hard :p Bloody is all of it hard. Pretty hard some times. So if you want casual you can go get yourself a bubble popper or a gem matching game. We made this for tough gamers that don't play those pathetic games (when anyone is watching at least)

    We'll be announcing here in the Forums when it's out or you can check us out on Facebook or Twitter @Tio Atum.
