Hi everyone! We are so excited to announce that our new title is coming to Playstation 4 on May 8th! We at Awesome Games Studio have been working on Fury Unleashed for five years now, polishing it to its edges, so you can all enjoy it. Our Rogue-lite adventure looked very different at first, and we hope you find this story about its origins a fascinating read.
Development began in 2015. We are a small indie studio, so getting close to each other, there were a lot of ideas coming in every day. The basic idea was born in the mind of our artist, who was thinking about creating a play that takes place within a comic book. After two years, we decided we were ready to engage with the game community and gather feedback on what needs to be improved. To our surprise, there were so many!
First, we heard that the game was very difficult. But instead of simplifying it, we opted to add a complete game mode where players can change the difficulty parameters at their own risk, at the expense of disabling most Trophies and leaderboards – a feature we've seen increasingly popular in recent years.
Also, as you can see in the gameplay above, the visual design has changed a lot since the beginning of the game. Many players claim that Fury Unleashed looks like "mobile", which has given us the impetus to gradually transform it into something more important, but existing in the high-tech news space. We strive to capture the spirit of adventure, where we would fight for ancient idols while we were discussing the story of someone suffering from imminent problems of burnout and self-esteem.
Even the name of the game has changed in the development process. It was originally called "Badass Hero," but after hearing a response like "love the game but hate the name," we made a difficult call to stop it. Sometime after the revolution, we started hearing jokes about people studying them as "Furry Unleashed" – so we decided to play and add an option to personalize the "Furry" superhero!
However, the most popular application by our players is to add co-op mode. While initially thought impossible – because from the beginning the game was designed and launched with only one player mode in mind – we ended up making it work, now you can plow through a lot of comics aside. with a trusted friend!
Overall, Fury Unleashed turned into a love product that combines the apathy of old-school games with modern game design standards and attempts to fulfill players' expectations where possible. It took us a little longer to do it than we had anticipated, but we believe that doing this extra work to take advantage of the feedback we've received has been worth it. You will be able to download the free demo version of Fury Unleashed March 31, and this full version will be released on May 8. We hope you find as many fun gaming as we had while we did it!
