    Hi, there! This is Rimlight Studios, to introduce to you our videogame in development, ZHEROS.
    [​IMG]
    ZHEROS is a 3D action brawler, set in a sci-fi setting; in an intriguing and futuristic world, you will have to get rid of the bizarre enemies raised and unleashed by the world’s archenemy, the mad Doctor.

    You can proceed on your path against the forces of chaos thanks to many combo attacks, special weapons and some mechs. The game’s area is, furthermore, totally explorable thanks to a fully 3D world.

    Mike and Dory are the main characters of this adventure and the agents of an intergalactic squad. We would like to introduce to you our hero, Mike:

    Hello everyone! While the work keeps going on, we've just added a new feature to our blog: "Meet the Team", to introduce who's behind ZHEROS. This week we start with our animator (a very funny guy); we hope you'll enjoy this new feature!

    We received lots of questions about it; many of you saw its power and said "whoa!"; many others compared it to an element found in the old-school beat'em up. We decided to talk about this awesome thing: take a look at the destructive power of the Mech in ZHEROS and read our latest Dev Diary update here http://www.zherosgame.com/mechs-co/

    What do you think about it?

    Sometimes I see things on this site that aren't getting any comment and don't understand the lack of interest.

    The art direction here is just fantastic, if you were making Axis and Allies type games I'd be drooling!

    Hi all!! We've just launched our Steam Greenlight campaign for our first videogame in development, ZHEROS!

    As we announced some times ago, we've always wished to release ZHEROS on PC and now this could become a reality, but only with the users' support. This is the chance to bring ZHEROS on PC and to treasure every feedback we will receive during the Greenlight campaign.

    If you would like to support us, vote "yes" by clicking here:

    To increase the support for this campaign, you can also spread the word with our Nouncy campaign; click here to share the messagge and help us to make ZHEROS Greenlit:

    Hi!! Our concept artist created a stunning concept art of the (probably new) Mech which we want to add in ZHEROS. If you wish, you can see him at work in this time-lapse video:
    [video=youtube_share;RhKCIPfJp9s]http://youtu.be/RhKCIPfJp9s[/video]

    We are still considering which shape we want to give to the new Mech, but we're inclined to choose this one. What do you think about it? Let us know!
    Cheers!

    Hi all! The second world in ZHEROS - the Forest - in still in progress, but we would continue our journey of discovery of the Rimlight Studios' team. It's time to meet Dan Liimatta, the guy who creates concepts and textures for ZHEROS: http://www.zherosgame.com/meet-the-team-concepting-and-texturing/
    [​IMG]

    We hope we will be able to give some more updates soon, especially after our participation to Etna Comics, the biggest comics' and videogames' festival in Sicily (the second one in Italy for importance), where we will show the ZHEROS' demo to the audience.

    See you soon!
