We are proud to announce our new hack & slay minigame, called "Hatch & Slay"!
The game is a simple 2D hack & slay survival game located in a tropical environment.
It’s about the initiation ceremony of a freshly hatched Varaz - a humanoid lizard race - who has to fight his way out of the dangerous jungle. Varaz are warriors by nature and live their lives
like a permanent contest of strenght. Starting with their youngsters, who have to fight their way out of an hostile environment to proof their worthiness. As player you take control over the
Varaz hatchling. The controls are very easy to use. Through clicking you can either move the character on the screen or attack incoming enemies. In addition to that there are also four skills
with a cooldown assisting you in battle. The goal is, obviously, to survive as long as possible and maximizing your score. “Hatch & Slay” will run on mobile devices as well as on your
The Making Of
The decision to create this game was very spontaneous. It was a saturday evening, our whole team sat together and talked about how to proceed with our work in progerss prototype of the ARPG
"Manaeyra at War". We wanted to show you as soon as possible, what we are creating and what you can expect of it. But there is a tiny problem. Creating a game is of course a process, that
takes some time before you can show anything. So how can we raise awareness for it and get you excited about it? As we tossed around some ideas we asked ourselves, what would we
It suddently became pretty clear to us: we just make a small and simple game, that nevertheless is fun to play and gives you a glimpse at things to come. The idea for "Hatch & Slay" was born.
The whole sunday we worked out the details of the game, decided which character and enemies to use and how it fits into our world. By the end of the day we felt ready to start developing. We set
ourselves a limit of three days to get it to work. So we closed the windows and curtains in our apartment, as we couldn't allow for any distraction. You know, nice weather and happy people
outside are the enemy of any working morale... :D
However, after three days of hard work we achieved our goal. "Hatch & Slay" was running and we already had fun playing it. Of course, it is not finished. Usually balancing and polishing takes the same time as the development process per se. So, you have to be patient for just a few more days until you can experience the gameplay by yourself.
How to get it
As soon as we are ready to put the game online, you will be able to download it from our homepage for free! It will easily run on your desktop, but more specific instructions will follow in time.
We hope to get a lot of feedback from you guys, so we can optimize the gameplay and get it ready for a official cross-platform release.

The things to come
We had so much fun creating "Hatch & Slay" and taking a short break from the ongoing development of our main project. Not because we don't like developing it, but working on the same thing
all the time makes you routine-blinded and some fresh input is always welcome. We are now planning to create a few more minigames in the near future. Everyone of it will use a
different genre and introduce a playable race or a specific character of "Manaeyra at War".
We very much hope that you will enjoy our games and that they raise your interest in our wolrd. As a matter of fact our existance depends on it. So, as always, feel free to swamp us with your thoughts, comments and critics! We really much appreciate it!
