Some snapshot showing monsters designs & animation. And the “unconventional weapon” By trhowing  the Krow’s feather, you can instantly backstab your ennmies in the air!
We spent hours on Krow’s control to make this game less hardcore.
See you later alligator!

Before starting sfx work, and to catch up with the fancy filthy overlord kowabunga fighto gif form the last post, here is the end game theme, hip hop style as we always do but mixed with old school French Literature in reference to our inspiration plot for our game: The Crow and the Fox:


Deal with it !

Yo ! Howdy !

So far everything goes well for our Crow project. We can platform and do things in it. Yay !

Before showing more updates about the gameplay, graphics, cheez, and other stuffs old school french literature related, here is the main music theme of the game:


Goin’ Epic In Da Hood.

For the third time, we recombine our forces into a new MEGAZORD

We’re in the JAM, same team as last time:

– Carduus: Graphics and other things like that – @CarduusHimself

– Looping: Code and blood tears – @looPingC2

– Vamont: Music, noises, air guitar – @ValmontDeRag



And to celebrate this, our work so far for our fable (the story thing, not da Pietr Molinious game) inspired game :

(including Crow, Cheese, Kommunist Kamarad RedBot, maybe a Fox)


Futuristic Poetry Title Screen that might not end up in the game at least just because





The Hero ! Fus ! He can jump



He can run. GOTTA CATCH EM ALL CHEEZ (the background is so psychedelic. That’s what happens when you’re high on #Cheez )

Greetings earthlings, and people from another planet reading this in the future (or in the present, but lightyears away. Which is the future. Science is complex. But hot as prostitute.) This messages arrives 1 day late, but we had to save the world before posting. But no-one knows about that.

So ! Our entry for this ludum is LiliLight ! You play as a little girl chasing monsters in her nightmare. You have to burn them with light ! So classic ! But toasted monsters taste better. Like KFC.



And RATE IT HERE (we love having love !)


Fancy screeshots

Titlescreen yaaay !




Raycast (“charles”) YaaaayY !

Lili was a child, young brave and kind, but fortunately with a little bit of wild.

Once upon a night, a spine-chilling cry troubled her fairy-taily-harmony.

It was her little brother bothered by some unmerry mare rascals !

It is for us, Lili and I, Max Power the Torchlight, your awesome story teller, to brave the endless dark hours dreams, to rescue him.



There might be some rework and English Cheesy Accent SFX added. Some tonguejob as well, for prononciation. What did you expect ? Not Schwepps..

Itsy-Bitsy-Musicality !
