Game Connection and GDC 2015: Meet Kybernesis

Meet Kybernesis at Game Connection and GDC 2015

We’re heading to sunny California next week! More specifically San Francisco to attend Game Connection and GDC 2015 along with tons of other Norwegian game companies! So if you’re attending any of those, be sure to stop by and say hello!

Corp Wars: Konvoy prototype

You will also have a chance to be one of the first to test out an extremely buggy, but hopefully awesome prototype of our next game in development, Corp Wars: Konvoy at Game Connection and GDC 2015 booths 248 and PL633 respectively.

Corp Wars: Konvoy - Game Connection and GDC 2015

Wastelander Transport from Corp Wars: Konvoy

Corp Wars: Konvoy will feature an explore-the-world mode, not unlike the Sid Meier’s Pirates games, where the cities you can visit will be populated with player cities when we release our city builder some time in the future. Until then there will still be cities to visit, but just the ones made by us.

There will also be a quick travel system, not unlike the one in FTL and Out There for those that aren’t huge fans of exploration, however some things will of course only be discoverable by exploration. The game will also feature a quest/mission system, also not unlike what FTL and Out There are doing, but with our own twist of course.

While exploring or quick travelling you will of course stumble unto raiders that want to take your hard earned money or any goods you’re transporting, but fret not, you will meet them prepared! You Konvoy transports can be mounted with cannon turrets and beside your transports you will have smaller attack vehicles ready to defend the Konvoy with just gesture from your finger. The combat mode is mainly inspired by Strikefleet Omega, but we’re of course adding our own twist there too.

As you most likely figured already, Corp Wars: Konvoy is deeply inspired by games like Sid Meier’s Pirates, FTL, Out There and Strikefleet Omega, and I also must add that the just released Sunless Sea also managed to add some ideas to our concept over the last couple weeks.

Wasteland Bar Fight

And we will of course have an Android tablet dedicated to Wasteland Bar Fight at both Game Connection and GDC 2015 booths. If you haven’t tried it out yet, you should head on over to Google Play and try it out! It’s completely free with ads.

We will bring the tablet with us on the countless parties during Game Connection and GDC 2015 too, so there will be ample chances to relieve some aggression with Wasteland Bar Fight instead of starting real bar fights.

Game Connection and GDC 2015: Wasteland Bar Fight puking

Wasteland Bar Fight can even handle the puking for you if you drink too much!

Hope to see you at Game Connection and GDC 2015! 😀

Wasteland Bar Fight Released Globally

Wasteland Bar Fight Released Globally! Wasteland Bar Fight have finally been made available globally, except a few chosen Asian countries due to localization.

Wasteland Bar Fight Global Release

 Wasteland Bar Fight Released on Google Play globally!

We have finally opened up our Google Play availability for the Wasteland Bar Fight Release to include all countries except a chosen few Asian countries, due to localization needs. So if you have an Android device, head on over to Google Play, install the game; it’s 100% free with interstitial ads now and then, and do tell us what you think in a review while you leave a rating!

Some players have reported that their Android device’s back button won’t open the quit dialogue, so we added a Quit button on the Main Menu. Also some players have reported that they only get an error when trying to install the game. It seems it has to do with installing games to external storage, so we have now changed it so it no longer force install on external SD when it’s available.

And last, but certainly not least, we have uploaded a brand new trailer with updated gameplay footage from Wasteland Bar Fight on YouTube. Check it out below and do subscribe to our channel!

Kybernesis at Pocket Gamer Connects 2015 in London

We had a blast at Pocket Gamer Connects last week in London! There were many people who visited our stand, tried out Wasteland Bar Fight and gave us invaluable feedback. And we had tons of interest around our main concept, Corp Wars too!

On that note, as we mentioned in our last post we also were part of their Very Big Indie Pitch with Corp Wars. I managed to make all of the judges raise their eyebrows with my pitch and some have even inquired about Corp Wars after the pitch, which tells us that we’re definitely unto something here 😀

Harry Slater at Pocket Gamer stopped by our stand and tried out Wasteland Bar Fight and wrote an awesome preview of the game: #PGConnects: Hands-on with quick-tap grungy brawler Wasteland Bar Fight.

Kybernesis & Wasteland Bar Fight Wiki on Giant Bomb

You can now find Kybernesis Company Wiki and Wasteland Bar Fight Game Wiki over at Giant Bomb. We’ll do our best to keep those wikis updated as we keep developing our franchise concept, Corp Wars and develop new games. So feel free to connect with us there too :)

Wasteland Bar Fight Soft Launch

Wasteland Bar Fight Soft Launch available in Norway and India on Android

After careful consideration we decided to the smartest thing with any launch of a new game, do a soft launch first! And since we’re based in Norway that is our first country to launch in of course. India is a choice we have done carefully because of the business model we chose for Wasteland Bar Fight and fits perfectly for our way of testing the business model.

We’re planning to expand the Wasteland Bar Fight Soft Launch into several other countries to further test our business model during the coming weeks, until we finally release the game globally which we will announce in due time, both here and in press releases.

So if you reside in Norway or India, head on over to the Wasteland Bar Fight site and hit that Android button and install the game! And don’t forget to rate it and leave a review, however short, positive or negative it is!

Everyone else! Be patient, once the Wasteland Bar Fight Soft Launch is over, the game will be made available globally. But until then, we will keep our beta testing community up and going while we add more bars, survival mode and new achievements to the game; feel free to join up and keep testing our future beta builds!

Oh and for all you Apple and Microsoft fans out there, fear not, we’re working on both iOS and Windows Phone versions!

A huge congratulations goes out to the top 5 Apps of the Year and especially this year’s winner, Steampunker.
