Ernie vs Evil - Exorcisms via shotguns!



Download

The town of Lawrston was once a peaceful place to live, until the summoning tore it apart. Risen from the depths of the utmost evil, the ancient celestial monster, Bob, has possessed the town. Using his new army, Bob, plans to turn all of humanity into his evil servants.

All that stands between Bob and his plans is one man, cranky from a double shift and with no evening plans. That man is Ernie, the sales manager for Meat N' Things.


-Use Ernie's vast array of weapons to fight tons of unique monsters across 30 levels.

-Battle many gigantic freakish bosses.

-Unlock and upgrade new weapons and side arms.

Maximum Android did some great initial play footage for the game, check it out:



Edit: It's also a good example of what happens when you don't let the gun charge. Spamming shots only makes them weaker especially with the shotgun.

Let's share a couple gifs.

This first one is a preview of the last area of the game. It gets really crazy on screen so you'll have to manage your gun meter and take full advantage of the secondary weapons to be able to clear it.


This next one is the special. A giant laser cannon that annihilates everything in it's path. Fill up the special bar by killing enemies and maintaining a combo and then you'll be good to go.

We're currently working on an update for Ernie on both platforms. We'll be submitting to the stores on May 4th. It should be available within the day on Google and can take upwards of a week to process into the App Store.


Here's a list of things we're adding:

  • Stage Rankings based on Performance
  • New Turret Sub-Weapon
  • Better Graphics on the Title Screen
  • More Descriptive Art on the Gear Loadout Screen
  • Better SFX and Polish in the Store
  • New Barrier Graphics that change with Leveling
  • New Damage Animation for Ernie
  • Gamecenter integration for iOS with Leaderboards
  • A bunch of minor polishing adjustments

Any other feedback please let us know. We have plans to keep updating the game to make it even better.

Let's have a screenshot dump in honor of the new update which is on track perfectly for May 4th. We plan to keep updating the game indefinitely so if you have any feedback please let us know here and we can keep it in mind for future updates!

There's a lot of little subtle graphic tweaks and polish items in the new update so the screenshots might not do it justice. We're currently working on a huge gameplay video as well which I'll post in here as soon as it's done.

The update is being tested as we speak. We'll have it submitted tonight and I'll post when it's in. Google is pretty quick with letting it through so it should take about a day and be ready to update.


Super excited to give you guys this update there's A LOT of polish that was added.
