The Ninth Realm Beta

It feels great to be able to finally post about a new game! It has been a while. But there’s good reason for that, The Ninth Realm (our second multiplayer title) is our biggest and most ambitious project to date.

The game has evolved a lot since we first started but we’re really happy with how it has turned out. Throughout development I’ve never really known how to describe it to people but I have settled on calling it “a sort of fantasy strategy battle game.”

You take on the role of a Guardian, one of an ancient order who seek to retrieve lost Rune Stones from the Ninth Realm. Rune Stones are powerful stone tablets, capable of summoning monsters, items and spells. In order to use them you will need to collect resources (in the form of elements Earth, Air, Fire and Water).

Each game becomes an intense strategic battle as you move around the map, casting spells and summoning creatures to fight for you in your effort to outwit your opponent. But it doesn’t stop there. As you play you will uncover new Rune Stones and you will be able to hone your strategy by deciding which combination of stones to take into battle with you. It’s a complicated game with an endless number of potential strategies.

We’ve also built a lot of other features around the game. You can add other players to your friends list so that you can easily invite them to play with you next time. You can unlock a large amount of Guardian customisation options so that you can stand out from the crowd (you can even save your outfit to your computer to use as a forum avatar). You can complete challenges to unlock new banners and symbols to show off your prowess on the battlefield.

We really hope you like it and would very much appreciate your feedback at this early stage. You may need to find a friend to play against since it’s early days yet and we haven’t publicised the game very much.

Bad Viking Rebrand

I just realised that I never mentioned here that we decided to rebrand my Bad Viking site recently. It started out as a portal site for games from around the web but I found that I was far more interested in focusing on making games and running a portal as well just wasn’t feasible. Gradually it just became neglected to the extent that I stopped putting any games up there.

Not long ago however we decided that it was about time we did something with it since we’ve always thought that the Bad Viking brand is pretty cool. We’ve also started to dip into the world of multiplayer games so we wanted to have a home for all these games with a centralised login system. It also means that we have a place that we can showcase our other games.

So here’s our new site, redesigned by John: http://www.badviking.com/

We just wanted something simple and functional for the time being but we’re working on a new multiplayer game and once that’s ready we’ll get to work setting up Bad Viking so that people can register to play the game on there.

Bad Eggs Online

Our first multiplayer game is out of beta. It has been a real eye opener releasing a multiplayer game. There is an incredible amount of work that you have to put in after releasing it to keep the content fresh and up to date as well as responding to criticisms, fixing bugs and adding the features that your players want to see.

We have put in a lot of hours trying to get this game to where we want it to be and have added a lot of new features after listening to our players. We’re likely still not done adding things but we feel that it’s at least at a stage now where it can lose the beta tag and we can start getting more players involved.

Huge thanks to everyone who has played and enjoyed the game so far and helped us get it to the stage that it’s now at. It has been far from a stress free release but I feel that we have learned a lot from this first attempt at multiplayer and I’m also very glad that a lot of players seem to be really enjoying the game.

We’ve had a great review here: Photonstorm.com and lots of positive feedback so far which is fantastic.

Hope you enjoy the game, look forward to seeing you online and in the forums!

Bad Eggs Online is in Beta

I’m excited to announce the beta launch of my latest game, Bad Eggs Online.

Bad Eggs Online is my first ever multiplayer game (hence the beta launch). It’s an artillery game along the same lines as Scorched Earth and Worms so it’s a tried and tested style of gameplay but we have approached the genre in our own unique way.

You play as eggs in our game and (if you create an account) you can level your egg up and unlock new shells to play as and new weapons to cause even more destruction. There are also over 100 challenges to complete in the game and for each one you will unlock a new badge so wear those hard to get ones with pride!

We’re very interested in hearing your feedback in this beta period so I look forward to hearing what you think. And please feel free to invite your friends to play against you if you can’t find anyone to play against! Since we’re just launching it is to be expected that you may not be able to join a game right away but as the word spreads that should change so we’d really appreciate your support.

Click here to play the game.

Thanks,
Rob Donkin
