Spark Rising was recently selected to showcase at GDC at The MIX event for indie games. We created a demo for this event, so we decided to share this demo with you for free!

Spark Rising Demo: Titan Rising! MacSpark Rising - Gaiden 3 - Titan Rising - PC



This Gaiden, version 3 (a "gaiden" is a contained experience, bit of a side adventure for us to test new features and gather feedback), is a pre-alpha demo map used to highlight the new art style we're playing around with and also show a Titan! We call it Titan Rising:) Or in layman, it's a prototype for how a boss might work.

Right now, all features are rudimentary, as our next steps are to improve the controls, enemy AI, and objective system before we start scaling. What's cool is that this whole map was created in-game, which means you could create something similar on your own in our creative mode. The build features have been turned off for testing purposes. There's both a PC and Mac version.

What you'll encounter in this demo:

  • New art style - Dusk!
  • New decorative blocks, used for, what else, decoration
  • Turrets that can be commandeered to fight for you
  • 2 types of enemies
  • New HUD design we're testing out
  • New sample soundtrack
  • Titan! Not quite Titanfall. More like Titan Rising! Ha.

We already got some great feedback, ie. it's not clear how the objective system works, so please share with us your thoughts. The more you let us know, the better the game will be!

We're still working out the early access pricing on Steam, but it'll be lower early on, similar to the Minecraft model, and we'll gradual increase it to +$19.99 as more content gets added.

Don't reply to me, I just thought I'd point out that there might be legal consequences if you can import maps from minecraft in a commercial game, such as some lawyer or similar contacting you and saying "stop that, you're not allowed to release a map converter without [us accepting it]". You should be able to release the map converter as a "community mod", thus not really making money off it and not risking getting a cease and desist order from mojang.
Game seems cool though.

Importing content from other games isn't really an issue. The way it works is that it's more of a conversion of assets from Minecraft to our game, since we don't use the same textures and such. We're also not selling the import tool per se. It's just a feature we'll open up for others to use. But thanks for the concern!

I was a Boy Scout for many years, and it's made me a better man. I'm sad to say I don't wear that badge of honor so proudly like I once did.
