26.9.2013 - Devlog

So yesterday (25.9) we released Zombie Kill of the Week for iOS.. And again with my sick luck, we got problems after publishing the game. Humh... So we had a perfectly functioning version for Testflight, bugfree and all. Now when the game ended up in AppStore, there is a "TEST" banner ad on the top middle of the screen for no reason. As you guys now, we only use fullscreen ads every now and then these days.

Then i checked our code, and it seems that the faulth is either on YoYoGames or MoPub so ive contacted both of them and trying to fix this. But for now there is a retarded banner ad blocking the view and destroying the mood for all players, Sorry for this...

Anyway the game is now out, ingame there is no ad and you can still perfectly enjoy the game for free.

Hero Siege

So Jussi came to my place today, and we had some fun developing Hero Siege, which kinda made my day and took me off of the stress caused by ZKW's release.

I managed to make 3 new enemies and a Boss for the game, and jussi managed to set up the 2 player co-op along with some features for rare/elite monsters. We are also planning to make destroyable debris spawn in the map which will drop gold etc when destroyed.

Here you can see the sprites ive done today :)

I also caught up in drawing to an actual paper for the first time in a loooooooong time

I'm also thinking and planning the crowdfunding campaign and greenlight for Hero Siege... Not sure how to go with it yet mmh.

This game is going to be so god damn awesome in every way... Anyway, i guess i have nothing more to say for today. Till next time :)

What is this? Who am I?

Harro!!! Welcome to my big bad blog about game development and my company Panic Art Studios!

My name is Elias Viglione. I am the CEO & Founder of Panic Art  Studios. I also do pretty much all the graphics and sound effects for the games we make. Some games i have even programmed my self like Didi's Adventure and eXtermination :)

I'm also working alone on the Beat-Em-Up "NES-Retku".

But hey who am i? Well as stated my name is Elias. I live in Tampere, Finland with my wife and 2 dogs. I am 24-years-old, and i make my living with games and freelancing my art skills.

I enjoy thai boxing on my free time, and playing Diablo 3 etc.

I have 2 guys working for my company: REllU (Santeri Relander) and (Terralus) Jussi Kukkonen.

You probably know REllU from the game Zombie Kill of the Week. He is the Programming Lead on the project, and obviously i am the artst and we both share our loads of designing.

Jussi Kukkone has programmed "Rum Isle" and is now programming "Hero Siege" with me. We often come to my place after school and just develop our projects. I have 2 PC's next to each other, so we can really make the best results possible!

This Blog will pretty much be about me and Jussi making Hero Siege, as its my most intensive project, and a daily routine!

(The game below...)

So what to come with this blog? I will be posting concept art, pixel art, guides and tips about pixels etc! Lots and lots of awesome stuff to stare at! So please press the subscribe button and get an e-mail every time i publish a new devlog!

Till next time! Peace out!
