Hero Blocks - The Skeletoonian


Thanks for dropping by!

We are a small Danish indie studio, striving to create a new kind of online multiplayer close combat fighting game. Team-based, yeah even 3-4 teams shall be able to fight. 1v1 or 15v15. Even 3v3v3v3!

Our goal is smooth, precise, real deformable and just very gratifying fighting.

We are trying to mix in classical 2D fighting elements, light and heavy attacks, combos, extenders. Fast and slow, and spiced up with some wacky stuff. The game is currently in pre-alpha and we need your help to make this game as great as possible!

The origin of Skeletoonians:

In a distant future. Humans are long gone.

Earth now belongs to the most unlikely robot life form imaginable…The Skeletoonians live for as long as their bodies can hold voltage. When they run out, they go into a state of hibernation. A never ending search for voltage drives the Skeletoonians to dig up the past…

We are producing a Hero Blocks video series about the Skeletoonians, watch it on our YouTube channel – Click here

Skeletoonians were announced Worldwide in 2035 as an advanced robot-toy. The Skeletoonian shipped with several programs to help children clean their rooms, assist with homework, and provide entertainment to relieve busy parents.

Soon every household had at least one Skeletoonian. That’s when the glitches began. One family reported that their Skeletoonian kept stacking every single object perfectly in one room. Another claimed that their two Skeletoonians dressed up as forest animals and started fighting each other. All owners stated that the Skeletoonians copied human body language, recreating everyday situations. The Skeletoonians were pulled from the shelves and left alone in warehouses around the World until one day…

Brains Behind

Our game studio is located on the West Coast of Denmark. We like games. And, we really like games that go the extra miles in regards of gameplay, feel and look. We like mixing genres and our wacky brains guarantee you a different gaming experience. We are excited, and we look forward to sharing our ideas with you.

Hey everyone. How are you?

Here at Hero Blocks we are feeling pretty great and please allow us a second to explain why. We have been busting our butts in collaboration with some very skilled and patient alpha-testers and together we have managed to add some more depth to the combat system. The result? Some really fun and gratifying Skeletoonian brawling!

We wish we could share the game with you now, but we are just not ready yet...

But, to satisfy some of your curiousity, we have decided to share a little more combat content with you :)

Heads up! (Sorry, we can never resist a pun)

As you can probably tell from the video below, Hero Blocks has a lot more to offer than punches and kicks.

Alpha-tester reaction.

After hours of playing our alpha-testers are still having a good time!

Skeletoonian Boyband.

Check out these moves!

Lastly, we would also like to thank everyone out there for your feedback and support. It means the world to us to know that people following our progress with interest. It has given us the energy to carry on with renewed optimism!

The game´s core combat system is coming along nicely, but is still not perfect. After all, we are in pre-alpha and we still have a lot of testing and tweeking to look forward to :)
