2020-09-26 - RoboPhobik is finally available on Steam!

RoboPhobik, is finally available! The game is probably something you never played before, so I heavily suggest to go to Steam and play the free demo:

- it's a shooter, but you are encouraged to shoot "consciously" (you don't have dual stick controls, you can't walk while shooting, etc...): plus the gameplay won't penalize you if you'll stand still before acting

- it's not a puzzle game

- it's not a strategy game: controls are "4-directions + shoot", there are no action menus or stuff like that... (the yellow tile overlay you see in the screenshot is to tell where the enemies will shoot)

- enemy movement is restricted to "tiles", player is free to move anywhere


2020-08-11 - RoboPhobik is coming!

It took me five years.... but finally my new game, RoboPhobik, is coming: September 25, 2020 - on Steam! For deeper infos... the MORE button is there for a reason :)
Some random answers to questions you might (or might not) have:

- The genre is a wierd mix of shoot'em up and "turn based" combat: you move / shoot while trying to avoid enemy's shots... but if you stop, enemy robots won't detect you, allowing you to plan your actions carefully (cool and very useful when taking screenshots - or debugging :)

- Controls are super-easy: just 4 buttons and a 4 way dpad! You can still play with an analog stick if you want, but a SNES-like pad works like a charm (if you are a WASD-believer (like me) and you want to play with your keyboard, feel free to do so!)

- Even if the gameplay is arcade-like, the story is not super-stripped (at least, by Haruneko's standard :) Compared to Amazing Princess Sarah or Akane the Kunoichi, you'll get way more characters, plot twists... and many, many cutscenes - just don't expect Hollywood, RoboPhobik is still a one man effort (except for the beautiful cover by DCWJ, I created almost everything by myself - this time I even composed the music, a first for me)

- After the initial PC Steam release, console versions will follow next year... probably, Xbox / Switch


2017-02-22 - Coming (not-so) soon: City of Robots!

During the last year I've been working very hard on Haruneko's next project, called City of Robots! For more info, check the MORE button below :)
Glad you clicked the MORE button :)

First: City of Robots is stated for release in the second half of 2018, so it's still in the "not-so-soon" league

Second: I've already got something playable, but the graphic is not polished enough, so I prefer to wait some more weeks before showing anything.

Third: some info of what it's going to be. It's a arcade shooter, mixed with a dungeon crawler, mixed with an RPG, with a slice of turn-based combat - I know it sounds a little wierd, but I can guaranteed it will be great when you'll try it :)
This time it's a 3d game with some things made with 3d voxel. But don't worry, Haruneko's style is definitely there.
The "RPG-lite" story will tell you the incredible adventures of a group of women that saved the earth during the 70s (before you ask, no, it's NOT based on a true story :)

More details will arise during the upcoming months, so stay tuned!
