E3 2015 Wulverblade Trailer!

June 16, 2015

Hey Everyone,

As you all know I’m hard at work on both client work and Wulverblade at the moment and here’s a good luck at what we’ve been up to with Wulverblade! This is the latest trailer! New characters, new environments, new everything! Hope you like it! Its taken a lot of blood, sweat and tears to get to this stage and there’s still ways to go ;)

I hope you can all see JUST how much is going into this. My life’s dream is slowly coming to fruition. I’m loving every second of this game and we’re now into year 3 of development. I know, 3 years, mad isnt it?! So much fun.

More to come!

Mike.

Why so quiet? Wulverblade is why!

Hey Everyone!

Wow, my once regularly updated website and blog hasn’t been attended to in months. Shameful!

Well, as you guessed, I’ve been über busy with both Wulverblade and my contract work. I’ve just added a few updates to my design section and dropped in a few Wulverblade illustrations in the illustration section. I’ve got looooooads of projects in the works at the moment, most of which are yet to be released. These include new games, UI projects, websites, brand designs you name it. All will be updated as they get released.

In short I’ve never been this busy in my entire life. Running the production of your dream game for your dream format (Xbox One if I haven’t already mentioned that a thousand times ha haa) and also running your beloved little company is quite the time challenge. I’m in SUCH a lucky position that the work I love and do as Fully Illustrated funds the production of my own game. I have to pinch myself at times just see if this is all real.

So in short work is still going on feverishly as I fulfil my clients needs and continue to craft Wulverblade, but worry not, updates will keep coming. Once the game is ready to launch I will be able to FLOOD the illustration section with more work than you’ve ever witnessed ;)

Here’s a sneaky sample of one of Wulverblade’s levels…

The New Wulverblade Trailer is Live!

April 10, 2014

 

Hey Everyone,

Well, I’ve been promising this trailer since December and now it is finally here! After a fantastic GDC and the game being shown publicly, its finally time to show it to the world.

As you’ll see there’s a little more about the story, some nice cut scene snippets and oh yeah, GAMEPLAY! BOOOOOOOM! Hope you all like it!

As you’ll hear, the soundtrack is a work of art and that is courtesy of the amazing Verbal Vigilante! They not only brought their very own magic to the trailer, but also some wonderful work from a vocalist who we’ll intro on here soon, but also a wonderful cellist and some fabulous voice over work from Noni Lewis and Ed Ward. Big cheer for the guys over at Verbal V!

If you enjoy the trailer we’d LOVE it if you’d be so kind as to like and share freely :) We’d be forever in your debt!

Thanks everyone, hope you enjoyed it!

Mike.

 

Wulverblade coming to Xbox One!

Wulverblade is coming to Xbox One and is playable at GDC!

Yep, you heard that right, my life long dream game is getting a life long dream format, a leading games console, WAHOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

We’ve known about this for a little while, so you can imagine our uncontrollable excitement about wanting to tell the world. And now, as of today, Microsoft have officially announced it, we are SOOOOO excited. So, so, excited.

 

Play it this week at GDC!

The best bit is, if you happen to be at GDC, head over to the Unity booth (South Hall Expo – Booth 1402) where you can not only see Wulverblade in action, but you can get to play it on the Xbox One, right there!

Click here for a map of where to find it

It is in a very early pre Alpha state, but you’ll get a good feel for the basics of the game. Brian and Colin are there too, so hit them up if you wanna chat about the game at any point. If you get a chance to swing by, please drop up us a comment as we’d love to hear your thoughts!

And a BIG THANKS to the guys at Unity for the showcase, you guys rock!

 

Screenshots Now and Trailer Coming Soon

Now, some of you may already know that I (Mike) got struck down with appendicitis last week and after a couple of operations am now recovering for a couple of weeks, so that’s stopped me both being there and getting the in-game trailer complete. ULTRA GUTTED! But, I’m going to show off two screenshots from the game here which will hopefully wet your appetite for the trailer. Once I’m back on my feet I’ll have it ready ASAP.

What a cool project! This my first iPhone game project where I was asked to create the in game art, awesome! And to go with it, it needed, branding, interface and web work!
