Isle of Bxnes announced
Isle of Bxnes is the brutal adventure of a caveman’s odyssey though savage islands where he hunts, collects supplies and grows his tribe while following a mysterious guide. The player uses a combination of attacks, dodges, and voodoo traps to navigate the largely hostile islands on his journey. At the same time, he’s upgrading his raft, increasing his offspring that will replace him as you die, and collecting relics for his totem.
This game sports a variety of roguelike features, plus locational damage and the increasingly common (but in my opinion, still really cool) mechanic of trying again as your progeny after your character dies:
- Reincarnation through your sons (who have randomly chosen skills, attack dmg and stamina)
- Variety of enemies, non-hostiles, missions and bosses
- Skill tree with 27 skills
- A health system divided by body parts
The developers have just released a trailer in which they introduce themselves and invite the public to playtest the game’s alpha build:
Isle of Bxnes is being developed for iPhones, iPads and Android devices. The developers tell me that Isle of Bxnes will be out in a few months
“in a few weeks” (though that might be a touch optimistic given that the game is only just now in alpha), with the alpha release coming in a few weeks. It will be released on iOS to start.
