    We’re really excited to announce our upcoming game, Taichi Panda. The game is currently in development, and it is set to go live for iOS later this year!

    Trailer:


    Taichi Panda is an action adventure RPG where players jump into the roles of one of three adventurers on a mission to save the world. They can play as either a nimble treasure hunter, a valiant knight, or a Daoist Taichi master.

    -Controls-
    The game has a really intuitive control scheme: left hand controls for movement and right hand for skills, which makes it really easy to pick up, but the action can be fast so it gets challenging pretty quickly.

    -Graphics-
    The game uses the Flexi 3D graphic engine originally designed for PC games, and features full-range motion capture so the animations and visuals are really sharp.

    -Game play-
    Our levels are quick, with some really interesting and powerful bosses to cap them off. There are unique side levels with special objectives, and also a lot of side quests you can take on to win special rewards

    -Progression-
    There’s a really diverse character progression system, where players will unlock skills, level up, and upgrade different gear in multiple ways, creating more choices that can impact the way the game plays. In addition to the character’s growth, there are also “War Pets” that can join players in battle, with their own progression, skills to unlock, etc.

    -Social Play-
    There are also some cool real-time multi-player features. For competitive players, there are solo 1v1 Arenas, and also small team 3v3 battles. There are also team-based dungeons, where players can group up with friends to take on really powerful bosses. The social aspect makes for a pseudo- MMO style, where players occupy the same space in the home city.


    We’ll be looking for beta testers soon. If you’re interested, you can connect with us on Facebook and check out our website for news. We’ll be announcing more about the beta testing soon, and we’ll also be available here at Toucharcade to answer questions about the game!

    Here are a few teaser pics:

    @AppUnwrapper, don't act like you don't enjoy it.

    But seriously (sort of), the idea of the game is to be a kind of funny, goofy adventure game as an action dungeon crawler. We don't want to take ourselves too seriously, and we wanted the trailer to reflect that. We're going to have some more trailers and game play videos soon, there are already some on our Youtube channel so check that out if you haven't.

    Hey guys, here are a few more pics from the game. We're working on the UI right now, but we've got some action pics to check out.


    This is a high-level version of the rogue-type character. The wings are a type of equipment, this set gives an HP steal buff.

    [​IMG]


    There are team instances, where a group of 3 players (plus their pets) fight off super powerful enemies and an epic boss. We snagged some screenshots of that.

    Here's just a pic of the equipment menu and bag area, we'll have more pics of the rest of the game soon!

    Hey guys, yeah it will ultimately be Free to Play, that's the model we prefer because it lets us reach a wider audience.

    We're going into Beta testing soon, and then it will be out this winter, though we can't set a specific date. We'll be posting news soon with more details about getting in on the Beta test.

    Glad people like the style. We've been playing the current version (still in development) among the team and we're pretty excited about the social game play. The pics before are from a Team Dungeon. Hopefully soon we can get some shots of the Arenas and 3v3 Battles, the real-time PvP is something we're pretty proud of.

    If anybody has thoughts or ideas on the game, feel free to post here and also shoot me a message. Same goes for those interested in Beta testing, if you get in touch I can contact you directly once the tester applications are ready.

    Hey Duivs, sorry, let me clarify. We're still in the Northern hemisphere, so we'll be doing testing within the next month or so, and release will be very close after that.

    Shoot me a private message if you'd want to do beta testing - basically playing the game and giving us feedback on what you like, what you don't, your suggestions, etc. - and we can keep in touch so that you can

    I'll private message you i want to beta test! But wasn't this from e3? Or was it something else? And I saw it was premium on the chinese App Store :/ bummer hope the free to play isn't to bad. I saw a girl with pink hair in the game and I need that lol


    ps: since its a free game couldn't we do like a 5$ unlock to get rid of timers of premium currency or whatever this game has?

    Little riddle for you guys:

    What's worse than a 7 foot tall pig monster?

    Answer: a dozen 7 foot tall pig monsters, with a 30 foot tall pig titan!

    Ok, maybe not the greatest riddle. We've been QA testing our big boss levels, this is one of our Elite levels - kind of like a sup-ed up Boss fight.

    Here's a question for you guys: what do you guys like most in a good Boss fight? Like what is the part that really gets you into it? Curious to hear people's thoughts.

    ^amazing!
    I like there to be a kind of strategy to boss fights ie you can't just stand there and fight him, you have to avoid powerful attacks and then dash in and dash out.

    Have you ever played monster hunter?
