Wasteland Bar Fight by Kybernesis: Gal Intro Screen

Someone Spilled Your Drink And It Made You Mad … VERY Mad !!!

Independent games developer and publisher Kybernesis is proud to announce that Wasteland Bar Fight, their post-apocalyptic barroom brawler, will be released and available on Android™ just in time for Christmas, with a version of the game to follow soon thereafter on iOS® and Windows Phone™.

Wasteland Bar Fight by Kybernesis: Gal Beer Time!

Set in a post-apocalyptic future where danger lurks behind every corner, you casually enter a bar for some quiet relaxation when a grumpy ganger spills your drink, triggering an all-out barroom brawl! Wasteland Bar Fight is packed full of gangers, mutants, cyborgs and other bad guys getting a rush out of trying to kick your butt, and it is critical that you defend yourself by punching and kicking your enemies with just a tap or a swipe on your device. Its all-out chaos and mayhem from the very start, and only the toughest of brawlers will survive. And if you can’t handle the pain, nothing cools down your wounds like another round of drink – just be aware of the local moonshine that has a negative effect on your energy level.

Wasteland Bar Fight by Kybernesis: Guy Rage!

Wasteland Bar Fight challenges you to survive against endless hordes of hairy bad guys. Unleash your rage with devastating attacks, and multiply your score by executing superior and amazing combos. Achievements can be unlocked making the trashing even cooler. Beat up waves of creeps, bullies, thugs, Mini-bosses and level-up to prepare yourself for the dangerous and superior Mega-bosses. With its action-packed fun and addictive gameplay, are you tough enough to survive the fight?

We need to decided on the names of our Wasteland Bar Fighters, but can’t decide so therefore we ask your opinion!
Give your vote or leave a suggestion below.

Naming our Wasteland Bar Fighters

Wasteland Bar Fighters

We have been discussing back and forth between ourselves on what we should call our Wasteland Bar Fighters; our protagonists that is. Personally I prefer Guy & Gal since that fits perfectly with the theme of the game, in my opinion that is. Ståle, our Art Director, suggests that we give them real names instead to make them more identifiable within the Corp Wars setting, which again might make it easier to refer to them in our future Corp Wars games.

Since we’re unable to come to a conclusion in-house, we decided to ask you! So head on below and vote for your favorite and we’ll (probably) go for whichever gets the most votes!

Vote below!

So now’s your chance to make a difference! Vote below on which pair of names you would like to see for our Wasteland Bar Fighters. If you don’t like any of them, feel free to leave a suggestion as a comment instead!

Wasteland Bar Fight OST by Kybomatik

Check out Kybomatik’s awesome Wasteland Bar Fight OST, with inspirations from 80’s Cyberpunk and trashy metal.

Kybomatik has composed an excellent soundtrack for our Post-Apocalyptic Bar Fighting game, Wasteland Bar Fight.
Drawing inspiration from both Cyberpunk and trashy metal riffs typical for the 1980’s, the soundtrack fits our Wasteland theme perfectly.

If you’re into the Cyberpunk sound, make sure to check out the excellent Cyberpunk pieces “InGame”, “Bad Android” and “Boss Fight”.
While all you fellow metal heads out there might appreciate “Wasteland Warlords I & II” with their trashy metal riffs.

Also, while you’re listening to the Wasteland Bar Fight OST, remember to check out our Wasteland Bar Fight landing page to join our open beta for Android and iOS!

NOTE! We’re not currently using all of these tracks in the current version of Wasteland Bar Fight, but we’re including them all since they’ve all been part of the soundtrack at one time.

In other news!

Wasteland Bar Fight

Wasteland Bar Fight

We’re currently working on a new game play video with the new look.
So keep an eye open and we will update you both here and on our Social Media channels when it’s live on YouTube.
Meanwhile, you can check out our old game play video if you haven’t already, so you can compare when the time comes!

Oh and any comments you might have on the soundtrack or Wasteland Bar Fight generally are more than welcome!

The world of Corp Wars: Some old concept art

Some old concept art

This is the world of Corp Wars:

Our future is their past. The seeds of our civilization survived by the actions of its destroyers.
Much has changed. The Nommo Empire holds most of Africa – ruled by an elite class of techno-shamen who call upon spirits of the past to teach them the secrets of the universe.

An industrial giant resides in the largest open mine on earth. Kyburgh, the last megacity, home of unscrupulous corporations whose tentacles of aquisition crawl from that hole in the ground to grab as much of the outside world it can and drag it into the pits of Kyburgh.

Scattered across the world are self-sufficient survivalist city-states. Enklaves are remnants of business-owned territory, government safe-houses and the fortresses of armies cut off from their superiors. They are tough, leading strict lives and commonly sacrifice themselves for the greater good of their hive.

Outcasts and tribeless wanderers gather in the wastelands, forming scavenging gangs. Sometimes these settle down to form new tribes and villages. Some times they murder and pillage their way across the land like a plague of locusts. They’re the wastelanders, or wasters. Bandits, robbers, thieves and murderers of a desperate and ruthless kind.
