Kapsula – Press roundup

Kapsula

Some press love highlights, comrades!

All you need to know about this game can be summed up with “retro-futuristic Soviet space colonies.” Sound crazy? It is. Crazy fun. (Phandroid)

Kapsula has a very cool retro-futuristic vibe based on Soviet space imagery. It’s like a more colorful version of an old pulp space adventure comic. (PC MAG)

As the road twists and curves, your head almost feels forced to move along with it, dodging traffic and taking in the darkened cityscape. It’s a very enjoyable racing experience. (Droid Life)

Jams – What lies beneath the mind of a serial killer?

So, Ludum Dare 29 is over (now is voting time!) Theme was tricky: “Beneath the surface”. After some initial brainstorming, we’ve decided to go with something simple but dense: an impossible runner through the mind of a serial killer.

The idea is pretty simple: avoid obstacles and try not to hit the walls (this is going to speed up your “enlarging process”, making the whole thing even harder).

So here it is. Patient 283, a free web game with crazy visuals and a powerful soundtrack. And remember: In a not so distant future, memories retrieved by nanobots may be used in federal courts.

Faif – Official trailer and press roundup II

So, Faif has been out for some days (official release – March 6th) and people from the press have said some really nice things about it. Here you can read some of them!

It’s an interesting combination of a lot of different game types. (Cult of Mac)

Faif is definitely one of the more unique puzzle RPG games I’ve experienced so far. (AppAdvice)

Faif carries an undeniable “one more time” quality that drives players to beat their winning streaks. (148apps.com)

The game looks utterly gorgeous, with a papery feel to proceedings that sort of makes it feel like you’re shuffling little bits of hand-crafted art around. (PocketGamer.co.uk)

We are currently working in a new update… expect some surprises!

Faif – Press roundup

Hi there! It’s been a while since our last post. Truth is… we are working a lot. As simple as that. Faif is shaping up really really well. We don’t have a final release date yet, but believe me: the end is near!

near

These past weeks we’ve spoken about our “puzzle/RPG based on gambling” game here and there. And we’ve said some really clever things… no, not really.

The core idea of the game is making a selection of five adjacent tiles in a grid and after doing it so, the game would randomly choose one. If it weren’t for the [Ludum Dare 28] theme, we would never come up with an idea like this. Ever. We love game jams! (“Time to jam: Beavl, the Argentine makers of uniquely beautiful games, tell us about Faif”, Pocket Tactics)

About the name, you know. We are an independent two man studio from Argentina, so English is not our mother language — hence the grammar awkwardness or the funny sentences! Faif is how we depict in our heads the pronunciation of “five.” We know that the correct form is /faɪv/ but hey, faif works for us. (“Have a little Faif: an interview with Beavl”, Hardcore Gamer)

And that’s not it! Faif was featured at Indiegames.com, Joystiq and Rock, Paper, Shotgun!

But wait. There is also this amazing video review made by the people from TechManiak.pl!

Back to development. So yes. The end is near. The final version of Faif is going to be available for Android/iOS soon. Not next week soon. But soon. Cheers!

Note: Remember that you can still grab the Early Release 50% OFF sale on Google Play or play it here (browser version)!

 

2014 first post and faif!

2014 is here. That’s something. My my! Time flies! And we are working really hard, no holidays for us!

Last weeks have been great. We made a game for Ludum Dare 28 in just 12 hours. It’s called Faif. Theme was “You only get one” and we came up with a really simple idea for a kinda puzzle game. People seem to like it, so we decided on fleshing it out! After some days of sweating (Buenos Aires is really warm these days), we have a playable BETA (WEB/Android)! You can play it right here.

But what is faif?

Faif is a Puzzle/RPG game with a unique battle system based on gambling. Try to defeat as many opponents as you can and unravel the secret story behind the game.

How to play it

After choosing 5 adjacent tiles you only get one! Play wisely with the odds and defeat your enemies before they defeat you.

Web version is free, iOs version is coming soon and Android… We have an Early Access 50% OFF sale on Google Play! Grab your copy, support us and show us some love!

Android version features:

* Unique gameplay
* Epic “odd” battles
* No IAP’s whatsoever
* A nice shop with kickass powerups (use gems you collect in the game as payment)
* Infinite mode (survive as many opponents as you can)
* Lots of stuff coming soon (instant spells, boss battles, random rewards and more!)

Comments and suggestions

We will be improving and uploading new versions of the game almost every week until final release for you to test it and help us flesh it out. You can use the “Tell Us” button in the game to send us your suggestions or comment right here! What do you guys think about the game? Any feature you’d like to see? Cheers and happy 2014!

PS. We are still working on The Narrow Path, adding lots of weird content and new game elements!
