Aztez is the marriage of turn based strategy and deep beat 'em up combat. Set in the world of the Precolumbian Mesoamerica at the birth of the Aztec civilization, you will take control of the burgeoning political power and turn it into the most incredible empire that the western half of the planet has ever seen. Manage the empire and establish income from a high level, and then utilize real time beat 'em up gameplay to address the various political events the regularly occur in the empire.

only mobile platforms are planned? by the way the moving animation is a bit too slow compared to the real running speed.

There are no mobile plans at all, actually. As of now the plan is to go right to Windows and OSX.

I think the combat looks really good. My only critique would be that the enemies seem a little 'floaty' at times when they move backwards.

Is there a mechanic to go along with the blood collection? Just curious but it looks really good so far.

Thanks! And I agree with you; their backwards (and forwards) still needs some vital tuning.

And yes, there certainly will be! I don't want to say too much more now because we're still figuring it out, but that system is going to be a huge part of the combat metagame.
