Introducing Earth Romancer, a New Fighting Game from Lunar Hare Studios!

Earth Romancer is a frenetic and complex platform fighter that combines intense bullet-hell gameplay with robust combo systems for a unique experience. Set to a JRPG aesthetic and a fantastic orchestral score, Earth Romancer aims to be an unlikely combination of spectacle and intricacy aiming to shake up the landscape of competitive fighters.

Taking inspiration from Smash Bros. and Marvel vs. Capcom, Earth Romancer has a vibrant, JRPG aesthetic and features two modes of fighting for every character.

“As a designer I’ve taken inspiration from every competitive fighting game I’ve ever played. From Melty Blood to Marvel vs. Capcom, you can bet Earth Romancer will be fun for any type of player,” describes Thomas Luvan, lead developer for the game. “We’re combining the pick-up-and-play aspect of platform brawlers with the high-flying spectacle and flashy goodness from traditional fighters! We’re also making sure the game keeps a vibrant aesthetic. Everything from the characters to the soundtrack have deep inspirations from old-school surreal platformers and classic fantasy RPGs.”

Taking inspiration from Smash Bros. and Marvel vs. Capcom, Earth Romancer has a vibrant, JRPG aesthetic and features two modes of fighting for every character. From hyperspace roads to wandering terraformers, Lunar Hare Studios will merge sci-fi and fantasy concepts to create an inspiring canvas for years to come. Help them create a world that ignites the imagination of players everywhere. Features include: 

  • Dash or jump through projectiles for intense bullet-hell style fighting!
  • Spawn stage additions upon losing stocks to adjust the environment to your advantage!
  • Character-specific air actions make sure every character moves in a unique way.
  • Two modes of play! Choose Redshift or Blueshift modes or play a combination of both and switch mid-combat.

November Wrap-up      

November has come and gone and we are so thankful to work with such talented developers! Here’s what they’ve been up to this month:

Currently live on Fig, Obelus by Springloaded is about an insurance salesman named Dave who travels the galaxy in a mech trying to reach the last few uninsured members of humanity. If you could travel around in a mech, what would it look like? Design or build your own mech and win some Steam codes and a Fig t-shirt! Check out our previous blog post for details on how to enter.

Popcannibal has announced that Make Sail backer beta codes will be sent out soon! Backers, be sure to keep an eye on your inbox for a code. If you didn’t back the game, be sure to add the game to your Steam wishlist so you can be notified when the game is released.

Design a Mech Contest

In Obelus, you’ll play as Dave, an interplanetary insurance salesman, travelling and fighting aggressive fauna across the galaxy with no one but your trusty corporation approved mech AI for company. If you could travel around in your own mech, what would it look like? Now’s your chance to create one! The person who designs the best mech wins a Fig t-shirt and codes for all of our currently available games on Steam: Kingdoms & Castles, Trackless, and Solstice Chronicles: MIA!

We made our mech out of LEGOs, but you can design or build yours any way you’d like – the more creative, the better! To enter, snap a photo and post it to Facebook and tag us, or tweet it to us on Twitter.

October Wrap-up

Happy Halloween! We’re wrapping up another busy month as we unwrap Halloween candy and cram it into our faces. This month was filled with ups and downs, lots of work and lots of fun, too! Let’s start by checking out some of the developer updates from this month:

Our own Justin Woodward traveled to TwitchCon this month to spread the word about the upcoming video game version of the popular board game, Flash Point: Fire Rescue from RetroEpic! During the livestream, they played the original board game version as well as the Steam version (which you should totally add to your Steam wishlist so you can be notified the moment it releases!). You can enjoy the archive of the livestream here.

We hope you all have a happy and safe Halloween!
