Hello welcome to Beekyr RELOADED dev log:

Let me introduce myself. It's Jaime here, the main guy behind KaleidoGames. I develop it all and I sometimes look for external professionals to help build the game's music or art. But almost thing is done by myself, I really thanks my friends to help me out with testing... Anyway...

A few months ago, we ended developing Vortex Attack for Steam, it has been quite a success for me: It had around 3500 people getting the game. The game was created for a really small niche group of players that enjoyed Galaga-ish games back in the day. The game is tournament / hi-scores based and it is well balanced. People enjoy it and get really addicted to the game. Some players unexpectedly have played over 100hours.


A few years ago, I developed another shooter (shmup) game that was quite a lot of fun too, but it was our first game and I made lots and lots of mistakes. That game was called Beekyr: Eco shoot'em up , it was designed with a kids theme theme but for hardcore players but that didn't work.

Recently I started fixing that wrongly designed title into something a lot more cool with lots of new features. I took sometime to think what 2was missing and what was wrong. A few weeks ago I started with the cover.

This is the original cover (from 2013):

I tried something more aggressive but main character as it was still quite infantile:

And finally we came up with this last design and a renewed character and layout, I needed an external artist to get this new bee designed:

This is just the beginning. Next steps are about updating the gameplay to make it a lot more playable and more for teenagers...
