Dark Dot: Action SHMUP with Drawing and Manipulation [Looking for Feedback!]
Hi everyone! We're Inzen Studio and we're a small team based in the sunny Singapore. The co-founders met at the Singapore-MIT GAMBIT Game Lab (now known as the SUTD Game Lab) and we all worked on this game called Dark Dot.
Dark Dot was released back in 2011, with only 4 levels on iPad only and it was covered here:
Touch Arcade Review: http://toucharcade.com/2011/11/01/da...r-ipad-review/
It was released as a demo prototype which showcases a research topic back then. After we came out to start Inzen Studio, we couldn't help but think about Dark Dot over... and over... and over........ aaaand we decided to see if we could license it back from the game lab.
We never looked back.
We started working on the full game in 2015 and we're gonna push it out on both iOS (for iphones too this time!) and Android. We also put in quite abit of new features that will hopefully make the game experience more engaging and complete.
Trailer and Introduction Video
You start the game by drawing any shape and you control the 12 Darklets via manipulating the shape or via re-drawing. You can rotate to get through tight spaces, pinch for concentrated fire or expand for a wider firing range. Darklets fire automatically and you can switch powers anytime while playing. The type of power available depends on the Darklets that you've chosen for your team and by upgrading or evolving the Darklets, you also increase the power level.
There are over 80 Darklets to collect, upgrade and evolve, as well as ability cores that will help you in-game. We've also included special comic panels that will show you more about the backstory of Dark Dot and why he's doing what he's doing. There are 9 different Elemental worlds to explore, together with 9 Elemental Bosses. We've also included an Endless mode where you can compete with your friends.
We're trying to push the game out in the next month or two and we'd really like to know your feedback as we want to make this game as good as we can get. We'll push out more updates regarding the Dark Dot world and we hope that you'd enjoy them as much as we enjoyed creating them!
