Flutter Bombs version 1.0.5 now available! Defend your grove in this physics based aerial combat game. Also available on Oculus Share! Revision notes...
Flutter Bombs started as a study of environment and landscape development tools in UDK. As the environment evolved, a game started to take shape that involved the flight and travels of a butterfly...and then came weapon systems. The game quickly became an aerial combat experience with a heavily armed butterfly equipped for air-to-ground combat with flutter bombs, and air-to-air combat with the nectar gun. The player can find moths, which are keepers of more advanced wing sets, to advance their weapons capabilities. Originally developed for PC, this was modified to be released for iOS, but will see further development for the PC platform later this year including support for the Oculus Rift.
Flutter Bombs has seen a transformation in many lights. The mobile games available for iOS and Android saw several variants released that explored different means of input. Using a touch-to-move method or device acceleration/gyroscope proved confusing to most, so twin stick is back and here to stay!
Outside of mobile development, the PC platform has gone through an overhaul which optimized gameplay for use with the Oculus Rift. Now available on Oculus Share, as well as IndieDB, Flutter Bombs! was a huge success this past December where hundreds stood in line to play the VR experience. While the game is only a demo at the moment, it proved that development needs to continue on this game, including multiplayer action.
Here's a look at the racing level currently being developed:
New levels from the original concept are now underway like River Run. A couple artists have been recruited and are actively contributing to the project. Market place assets from the Unreal Engine 4 Marketplace are being integrated, and we're now looking for some multiplayer programming guru's to collaborate with.
Here's a look at some new Wingset Upgrade art being developed:
New Wingset Upgrades are in the works for players to choose from as they complete levels - and with new wings come new abilities.
Stay tuned for more, and catch Flutter Bombs! at Oculus Share, The Rift Arcade, iOS App Store, and Google Play!
