Orangepixel’s Space Grunts now available!

still

Orangepixel’s latest game Space Grunts is now (finally!) available on iOS and Android.

 

The game will be approx $3.99 (may vary based on currency and / or country specific taxes)

with a 50% launch discount during the first 2 days for loyal Orangepixel fans and early-birds :)

 

Space Grunts mixes an action game with a turn-based roguelike:

Quick instant turns and inventory handling meets screen-shakes, big explosions, and intense action.

 

The game can be completed by experienced, and fast, players in an hour, but most sessions will probably end in under 10 minutes dying a horrible death in the moonbase.

 

So far I haven’t managed to complete it myself, and I’m the guy who wrote the game!

 

Space Grunts started out as the sci-fi sequel to Heroes of Loot, but quickly turned into a new game and a different genre. A “turn-based game Orangepixel style”.  Mixing strategy and decision-making with fast movements and arcade gameplay.

 

Features:

  • a 16 level deep moonbase
  • many secrets like hidden rooms and hidden alternate worlds / paths
  • no in-app payments!  Just a pay-once-and-play price
  • a large collection of consumable items to figure out on how best to use them
  • secret combinations of items for extra power
  • unlockable characters
  • a daily challenge
  • all procedurally generated, no 2 games will be the same, ever!

 

The story

 

I (Pascal) developed the game without knowing anything about turn-based games. I’m more of an action gamer, and never liked the slow-pace that many turn-based games bring to the table.  The result is the action game I like to play, but turn-based!    

 

I started working on the game based on a challenge from friends telling me to try my hands at something new. The result is a very enjoyable turn-based game, with some depth but not too much to keep it interesting for both action gamers and the more thoughtful tactical gamer.

 

Hope you enjoy it! :)
