11 months later and after redoing the game from scratch (long story) we hit Steam Greenlight
Here's a quick rundown of what the game is about
DiXidiasoft invites you into the Victorian age to retrieve Nikola Tesla's stolen invention!!
The Steampunk League is a 3D isometric action platformer set in an alternative Victorian Age, revolving around the story of Nikola Tesla and his eternal rival Thomas Edison. In this universe, Tesla managed to get rich thanks to his inventions, leaving Edison on the edge of bankruptancy.
When the entrepreneur steals Tesla’s secret invention, he has to retrieve it together with his comrades: H.P. Lovecraft, E. A. Poe and Ada Lovelace.
The whole story takes place in four epic cityscapes of the Victorian Age.
Travels around the world to ruin the Edison's plan are waiting for you in the Worlds' big cities and the deepest caverns, the English countryside and the ice that only Russia can give, cross the Brooklyn Bridge and walk into the immense Louvre, there are many places to visit, and only with your will force you can get as high as possible, up to the moon. Explore the most beautiful cities of that time, reinvented in steampunk sauce!
Face the levels across mobile platforms, slippery floors or sticky platforms without falling into the abyss and don't get crushed by mechanical presses. Then, avoid traps and poison and the puffs of fire of the forge. Pay attention in tackling levels, everything is against you.
You can play up to four different characters, everyone with his own peculiar abilities. Decide who to use in order to face the levels, choose from four of the most famous historical characters, fight in the shoes of the inventor Nikola Tesla, or choose to use the dark magic of the writer Edgar Allan Poe, fight hand to hand with the detective Howard Phillips Lovecraft occult or use the little robots of the scientist Ada Lovelace. But there are many other historical characters ready to help you against the enemy, Thomas Alva Edison, and his famous companions.
Be cautious: thanks to Edison’s huge army, your quest it will be much more difficult than you think! Violence is not always the right answer: you will have to tactically plan your moves to overcome the threats waiting for you.
Race to complete the level as fast as possible or take your time to explore the environment, uncover the secrets hidden in each one!
But be careful, powerful enemy are waiting you into the darkness
The game features a very detailed handpainted style optimized to get a cartoon-like result.
We used many references to take inspiration and reinvent the most beautiful cities of the 19th century, making them unique and adapted for the cruel platforming waiting for you there.
so ok have fun
