    Hi everyone,

    we are Raze Studio, an indie game developer from Trondheim, Norway.

    Today we have uploaded a free version of Raze, a 2D brawler game, to our website (http://raze.no/). This is a project we've been working on for about half a year.

    [​IMG]



    About the game
    The year is 20XX, and the city of Clearbrook has been overrun by gangs of fearsome thugs! You play as the main character Raze, a punker with red hair, a robotic arm and a really short temper. You're on your way to the city core, but it won't be a stroll in the park. The enemies are fully aware of their surroundings and they will hunt you down, surround you, and do whatever it takes to stop you.

    Play the game!
    Platforms and requirements​
    The game can be played in a web browser or it can be downloaded (best choice, more stable). It runs on windows, linux and mac.

    System requrements as suggested by Unity:

    Desktop:
    • OS: Windows Vista SP1+, Mac OS X 10.9+, Ubuntu 12.04+
    • Graphics card with DX10 (shader model 4.0) capabilities.
    • CPU: SSE2 instruction set support.
    WebGL:
    • Any recent desktop version of Firefox, Chrome, Edge or Safari.

    Known issues / bugs
    The WebGL version seems to be very unstable, but we're unsure why. As far as we know, it runs mostly okay with Chrome, but it may not run at all in other web browsers like firefox and safari. In addition the music may not be there at all, and sound effect may be slightly delayed.

    If you shoot while stepping forward the ammo amount may go down by 2 instead of 1. This occurs in both the downloadable versions and the WebGL.

    The downloadable versions are much more stable, and we're not aware of any more issues/bugs in these versions.

    Feedback
    Feedback would be much appreciated! We're mainly on the lookout for feedback regarding gameplay and game mechanics - things like: player movement (attacks, jumping and gun fire e.g.), enemy behavior etc.

    Having said that, feedback regarding art, music, sound effects, concept or other aspects are also very welcome!

    If you want to give us tell us what you think feel free to fill out this play-test survey after trying the game. But we're happy to get comments on the post as well!

    Hi all!

    We're back with Raze v0.3!



    Download for free at raze.no!

    Behind the scenes
    We have been quite silent for a while!! These past 3-4 months we have been working on systems development.
    There are few visual feature in the game, but lots of new changes behind the scenes.

    Here's a few of them:
    - cutscene system
    - character properties and skills
    - level hazards (e.g. spikes)

    If you want to read more about the new features, check out this change log.

    We have a new member in the team!
    He's a great back-end programmer and has already been an essential member throughout the development of this version.

    Facebook page
    We've recently created a Facebook page where we'll post updates on the development.

    Youtube videos
    From this point and forward we will be posting videos showing new updates and content regularly (every week / every second week).
    Check out our youtube channel here!

    Hope to see you there!

    Hi all!

    Psychic powers
    In the newest update, Raze 0.4, you can now use a psychic force push ability!
    It looks like this:

    [​IMG]

    WebGL
    The option to play a WebGL-version has be added to our website again.
    Try the WebGL-version here or visit raze.no.

    (The WebGL-version's stability might vary depending on which browser you're using. Chrome and Firefox should be safe at least.)

    Next release
    In the coming weeks we will try to finish most of the game's core systems, thereby ending the system development phase.

    New phase
    After that we will begin making a lot of content, doing user testing and improving the core game mechanics!
    That's when the fun really starts!

    Have a nice one!


    P.S:
    We have replaced FMOD with our own audio system and re-added sounds to the game.
    We were a bit quick to throw in the audio again, so some objects may have the wrong sounds.
    This will be fixed soon!​

    A few weeks back we participated in a video game competition in Norway, NGA.
