Black Paradox

Today we introduce you the main character of the game: Black Paradox!

Bounty hunter, able to travel in time by manipulating black holes’ energy.
On board his car, the Star Phoenix, enginereed to fly in space, he searches for his next prey.
He has an helmet that lets him breath in space and control his vehicle.
An heavily armed, ultra-fast and state-of-the-art car that features a secret weapon: the Black Paradox, which is able to simultaneously overlap two dimensions to get him the help of another Black Paradox, his counterpart from another dimension.
Used at the right time, this weapon can make Black Paradox invincible.

Cooking meth with Walter White

Today we want to talk a bit about Landflix’s 4th world, Going Mad.

As soon as you enter this world you and Walter White will be chased by the mexican cartel, which is trying to stop his drug business.

You’ll jump in Walter’s camper and start a crazy drive through the desert to escape your chasers.

The world’s mid boss will be Victor Salamandra (Our version of Hector Salamanca).

This evil old grandpa will be tougher than he looks, and Larry will have to use all his skills to defeat him!

The last boss of the world will be the scarred Gusteau Fringes, the evil manager of the Pavos Hermanos fast food. He and his fast food gang will try to defeat Larry to use one of the nuclear batteries to make the perfect drug.

Fun fact: the scar on his face comes from him falling face down in a frying machine. It was an embarassing yet tragic incident.

So what do you guys think of Landflix’s 4th world? Let us know in the comments and give us your feedback!

Black Paradox

Reveal time!

Our Studio’s side team (Tea Manager Luca, The Mighty Carlo and Metalhead Simone) has been working on a new game, Black Paradox.

Black Paradox is a roguelike shoot ’em up game, and is traveling at the speed of light towards its release.

Year 5027, humanity has conquered all of the galaxy, but Earth’s government isn’t able to keep its many territories under control. Many space criminals rage freely and plunder any poor soul unlucky enough to get in their aims.

The only ones trying to maintain order are the bounty hunters, hunting down wanted criminals to cash in the bounty on their heads.

Black Paradox, the toughest hunter in the galaxy, finally decides to shut down the biggest family around, the Hellraisers, a group of warlords controlling many star systems, and to catch its six lieutenants and its leader, Quantum Black.

Will his vehicle, the Star Phoenix, equipped with experimental technology capable of controlling space and time be enough to fight off the Hellraiser’s whole army?

The game’s development has been going on for a while and is processing smoothly. We plan to release it later this year on Steam, Xbox One, Ps4 and Nintendo Switch.

We’d apreciate your help in spreading the word and sharing your feedback on the game.

Met(h)icolous job

Hi everyone! This last few days we’ve been working on Larry’s fourth power, the Blue Sky Meth!

But let’s go slowly and start from the beginning. Landflix Odyssey will feature some obstacles that Larry won’t normally be able to overcome with his usual skills. it looks like if he was “a bit faster” maybe he could have a chance at clearing them right?

So here’s the catch!

The Blue Sky Meth both slows down the world around you, and speeds up Larry’s movements. The effect has a time limit of course, and a long cooldown, but in exchange will let Larry surpass previously impossible obstacles, make some others easier, and can be used to take on enemies more easily.

The development wasn’t as easy as we tought, and our devs had to use Blue Skye meth themselves to speed up and finish the work in time 🙂

Also we really like the effect applied on the camera while under the meth’s effect. What do you guys think of this power?

Getting beaten by the ninjas!

These last few days we’ve been working on making our ninja enemies as Ninjaish as possible. We ended up with 3 types of ninja, each specialised in a different deadly combat style!

The first is the Shuriken ninja, a master of long range attacks. The second is an expert with the Bo Staff, who’s attack pattern relies on his ninjutsu to hit hard on his unaware target! The third and last one is a Katana master. His focus will be on speed, once ready he’ll release a really fast !Iai” to strike down his enemies!

Here’s the Bo Staff expert at work. Once his target is confirmed he’ll proceed to use his ninjutsu to disappear into thin air! The poor Larry won’t even be able to see the hit coming. Is there any way to defeat such an enemy?

Of course there is! By using his petrification powers Larry renders his enemy sneak attack useless and proceed to attack him when he has just reappeared and isn’t expecting an attack!

The Katana master is even more vicious! Once in “Iai” pose he’ll struck anything in his attack range! he really looks invincible!

Timing is even more important with this fast enemy. He’ll totally not expect a counter, no one has survived his attacks before after all!

The Shuriken ninja will unleash timed flurry of long range attacks at larry. The attack range and the short time between flurries will make it hard to use the petrification alone to beat this enemy.

But if paired with good dodging skills Larry will be able to petrify directly in front of his enemy, and strike as soon as he goes back to normal! So what do you guys think of this set of ninjas? Are they real ninja masters or do they need to go back to ninja school for some extra training?

Grappling Hook effect in Landflix Odyssey

These last few days we’ve been working on finally giving Larry his third power, the green belt! The green belt can be used in 2 ways. As a grappling hook (as shown in this gif) and to pull metal objects toward the player. We’re still in the process of refining the mechanic and its visual, but as it is now “working” we wanted to hear your opinion on it. What do you guys think?

New post Trippin’ in a fast food

Today we’ll be talking about Landflix’s 4th world 4th level. After fighting with the mexican cartel Larry goes to a fast food in search of the drug dealers controlling the cartel’s drug ring. When he gets there, he lets his guard down and the Fast Food Gang drugs him with LSD.

The whole level will be Larry trippin’ and flying in his own allucinations trying to snap out of it.

And when we say tripping… We really mean tripping.

The level, will be a shoot ’em up, just like the dragon ride in the Elder Thrones world. Here you can see the background we’ll use for the level. We hope you’ll like our idea! What do you guys think?
