Ultionus: A Tale of Petty Revenge out on OUYA. Featured in Play Like a BAWB.

So, I have finally figured out the OUYA-specific in-app purchase system and as a test implemented it in Ultionus.
If you own an OUYA and want something oldschool to play on it, or just want to play an oldschool game on a TV and not a computer monitor - give Ultionus a try!

Now back to streamlining Iya's movement.

Ultionus is up for pre-sale on Desura

The game has finally been approved by Desura and will be released on January 1st. Meanwhile it is up for pre-sale right over here.
  Desura Digital Distribution

Meanwhile I am still trying to figure out how to generate keys across platforms - so Desura buyers would get the game on Humble Store and vice versa. Anyone knows of an easy guide of how this is done?

Hey, did you guys know I made another game a long time ago?: )


Yes - my only other finished project is Maziac. It's a fairly terrible exploration platformer that might look a little like Spelunky, but was made years before Derek Yu's mega popular random generated game.
Well - it has now been added to the "Finished Projects" section along with Ultionus.
Maziac is completely free for Windows, assuming your machine can run something written in GameMaker 5 or earlier (it's all software graphics - no DirectX required!: )

Ultionus is now available for purchase via Humble Store!

So yeah - that was quick!
Ultionus: A Tale of Petty Revenge is now available for purchase via the Humble Store. In fact - you can buy it right off of here!

Just scroll to the bottom of the page and BAM! Windows and Ubuntu builds are included with every purchase. I am still working on procuring a Mac in order to get a build for that.
Back to the grind: )

Ultionus A Tale of Petty Revenge

While LOI is being completed - I have something to ease your anticipation. A brand new, complete game in fact!
Ultionus is inspired by the arcade games released for 8 and 16-bit home computers in late 80s and early 90s. Particularly games like Halloween Harry, Phantis, Astro Marine Corps and Jill of the Jungle had a lot of influence on the game's overall look and design simplicity. Though the gameplay in different stages varies between three major styles - shmup, autoscrolling shooter, and jump-n-shoot arcade - all three styles are easy to pick up and play, though tough as hell nevertheless.
The game's release is currently being finalized on Desura and Humble Store, and will be available for $10. It is also up on Steam Greenlight (so please - go vote for it if it's something you'd like). The game will also be available for free to all LOI supporters who pledged $10 or more.

Initially only Windows and a Linux versions will be available, but a Mac port is highly possible if only I could get my hands on a Mac computer.
An Ouya port is also complete and is waiting for YoYo games to implement the IAPs.
The game features music by Jake "Virt" Kaufman and Luke "A_Rival" Esquivel.
