Subsolar coming on 1/27/11

Hi

Here comes our second project!
To answer to the popular demand of a game sharing the same gameplay concept than Love Battle Princess but around a theme that can be played by everyone, we bring you Subsolar!

Here's the trailer:



Subsolar is an arcade iPhone game that takes you to an unforgettable journey through space, in search of a new world for mankind. Its gameplay concept is so original that you’ve never played anything like it (unless you've played Love Battle Princess). It is simple and fun for newcomers but also deep and sophisticated for advanced gamers. Subsolar takes full advantage of the latest iPhone 4 and iOS features, with spectacular Retina graphics, sophisticated visual effects and online Game Center leader boards and achievements.







For those of you who are familiar with Love Battle Princess, Subsolar is structured the same way and has pretty much the same gameplay content.
We're very happy to be able to offer it to a larger audience now.
We hope you'll enjoy the space exploration theme. We had a lot of fun doing it!

And last but not least, we're stoked to announce that Chris Huelsbeck, better known for his incredible musics on R-Type, Turrican, Z-Out and Star Wars Rogue Squadron, has composed an entirely original soundtrack for Subsolar!
As retro gaming veterans ourselves and long time fans, it's a blast!

There's more info about the project on our website.

We have already been approved by Apple and the launch date is 1/27/11. The game is compatible with every generation of iPhone and iPod Touch.

Support Love Battle Princess! <3

Looks great. And I love the music. It triggers a memory, something to do with a dump truck, not sure what exactly but it's a nice memory.

LB princess had such excellent game play mechanics / concepts / art style, so this is a must buy for me. Any word on pricing?

I'll def. be following all of tenshinoir's games from now all. Speaking of which, with this out? What is your next project!

Bring on the sci-fi theme. This is looking good!
I'm sure this will help you reach a bigger crowd.

I hope this game will be your well deserved breakthrough on the App Store. It would be awesome!

Love Battle Princess is still one of the few puzzle games on the iPhone that I really enjoy playing. At $0.99, there's no reason not to try this out. Here's hoping to a feature from Apple.

Thanks for the constant support Haruhi! Yeah Apple feature is pretty much the only real good exposure a game can get. Love Battle Princess rating probably prevented it from ever being featured. We'll see what happens with Subsolar but we'll need enough people to get it on day one if we want to have better chances of getting noticed.
