Misfits vs Monsters

Misfits vs Monsters is a character management RPG, based in a quirky fantasy setting. Collect, train and manage a world of unique characters as they battle monsters, navigate dungeons and try to rebuild their downtrodden town in a stunning medieval city.

The aim of this prototype is to display the core gameplay elements and artistic style, whilst demonstrating the extended elements which the full game will include. We will be using this prototype to present the game’s potential to a number of publishers, with the desired outcome of securing a global publishing deal.

Vostok Inc.

Vostok Inc. is an antidote for frustrated gamers everywhere. A multiplatform hybrid shooter and strategy game you can enjoy on console whilst sitting on the sofa in a hardcore gaming session, just as easily as you can whilst tapping away on your mobile when the boss isn’t looking. It’s a game for the modern gamer, one who has to manage their spare time but still wants a “proper” game to play. It’s equal parts intense twin-stick arcade shooter, and passive resource management, with a compelling metagame that directly influences the second to second gameplay and vice versa.

Bloody Zombies

Bloody Zombies is a co-op brawler designed to be played with any combination of TV/monitor and VR players. Fight across the ruins of London using carefully refined Free-Form Combat, taking down a terrifying variety of undead with an expanding special move-set. Created for 1-4 players, Bloody Zombies is also enhanced with VR – using its unique viewpoint to help the team overcome obstacles & discover secrets in the game.

Fragmental

An intense online or couch-play, multiplayer twin-stick shooter with some of the fastest and most frantic gameplay around. It’s a single screen, explosive arcade blast of fun where the weapons and levels are deadly and the rivalry is fierce. The top down view means there’s nowhere to hide so you better bring your “A” game and pick the right weapon for the job! Just make sure you know how to use it or you might blow yourself into a hundred tiny fragments. Fragmental releases on Steam Early Access in February 2016.

The Secret Police

The Secret Police is a London-based game developer focused on free-to-play mobile titles, drawing influence from the Japanese and Asian markets. Their first title, launching in 2016, is a battle RPG / character collection game. The game features beautiful 2D artwork, a host of characters to collect, evolve and fuse, intuitive and fun battle system, and gameplay which is easy for beginners to understand and enjoy but which offers huge depth to keep the most experienced players entertained.

Empires of the Undergrowth

Empires of the Undergrowth is a fast paced real-time strategy game based on the world of ants, with a story told in a TV documentary style. Built on top of a simulation, the player influences the colony behaviour rather than directly controlling it.

Underground the player excavates their nest, stores food and builds an army. On the surface they claim territory, gather food, overwhelm insects and arachnids and clash with another colony in a tug-of-war battle. Army size, composition and attack timing will eventually lead to one army pushing into the nest of the other to defeat their queen.

Waterways

An atmospheric first person action game, in Waterways you travel the foreboding canals of a city long ago fallen to monsters. Reach safe haven beyond the city’s walls by scavenging, crafting and upgrading as many tools and weapons as you can to aid your journey.

Using your floating vessel as a base, venture out on foot to scour every abandoned building. Avoid the monsters. Fight as a last resort. Your craft drifts with or without you, so plan ahead. If you panic, run, if you smash a bottle… that sound’ll soon be joined by the chorus of alerted monster’s screams.

Zombies, Roll!

Zombies, Roll! is a hybrid boardgame and smartphone app where players survive and thrive together in the post-apocalyptic world from the hit Zombies, Run! fitness game. The game combines the best of boardgames and videogames like Pandemic and The Walking Dead into a genuinely unique mix of real-time gameplay, dynamic storytelling, and co-operative decision-making.
