Imps In Tokyo Release Date and Trailer!

Hello Friends!

We Are Vigilantes and we are super happy to let you know that our first baby, an indie arcade/adventure game Imps In Tokyo, is going to be released on AppStore on February 17, 2015!

Trailer Time!

We owe a BIG THANK YOU to all fine folks from this awesome Touch Arcade community who helped us in making the game the best we could. We wouldn't make it without you

For those who are not familiar with Imps In Tokyo, a few word about the game:

t’s all about the adventure and you can feel it from the very first seconds with our game! Through comic style narration, the game tells a story of young Imps - dreamcatchers and protectors of the world of dreams. Forced out by evil Mr. Cornelious from their shattered home, city of Impolis, they land in the Earth's Umbra - the plane between our world and the world of dreams. You will help Imps to chase Mr. Cornelious and his minions in order to protect this world from the ill fate that Impolis suffered.

Imps In Tokyo is a fast paced story-driven arcade game where you use your finger to guide your chosen Imp through the night sky of Tokyo, collecting dreams and fighting dream thieves. You will also have to avoid some spiky enemies and fiery hazards which are there to get you! As the story unfolds you will be introduced to new micro-mechanics and gameplay variations like pickup and deliver, runner or point-and-shoot. It all climaxes with a 5-stage boss fight... because what is an arcade game without a boss fight?!

The game will be released as an iOS exclusive. Early adopters price is $1.99/€1.99 and this will later increase as we roll out more content in the form of arcade challenges and high score chase missions. To those who own the game all these extras will come as free updates.

- Comic driven campaign/story mode
- Endless gameplay mode (secret mini-game unlocked in the story mode)
- Challenge mode (coming soon after the launch as a series of free updates)
- Choice of 5 different characters, each with a unique perk (slowdown, extra damage, damaging tail, extra life, faster movement)
- Handcrafted illustrations and artwork by our two amazing heroines Basia and Luiza
- Original 80s inspired soundtrack
- One of the Imps farts

When creating our game, we were inspired by various works and artists, including S. Lem’s “The Three Electroknights” novel, Tim Burton, the Rayman series and many more. We believe, however, that the world of Imps is a completely unique universe and that the Imps In Tokyo game is the cornerstone of a prospective franchise.

You can grab some more info on the game as well as on development process in this TA thread or just jump on our website!

See you on your iPhone/iPad!
