Let’s build a Doujin bundle!


It’s time for another great offer – Groupees is hosting a Build a Bundle called Build a Doujin Bundle, which is completely doujin game themed. Based on the first day, the bundle is doing exceptionally well, nice to see so many people interested in the scene.

Participating teams are: Fruitbat Factory (that’s us, no mistake there), Nyu Media, roseVeRteX and Sakevisual. We’re happy to be part of it with War of the Human Tanks. The other games are:

Cherry Tree High Comedy Club
Ether Vapor Remaster

Including Desura and Steam keys for the ones that are in Steam. Don’t miss this chance if you don’t have these games in your collection!

Fruitbat Revelations

Since our last update we’ve been hard at work on the preparations for 99 Spirits’ release , especially the IndieGoGo pledge rewards. All art assets are ready for printing aside a few that we are waiting for the final versions from TORaIKI. When those arrive, everything will go to print and we’ll start shipping the goods other than those waiting for the physical copy of the game, that is to say the Collectors Edition.

Speaking of the Collectors Edition,  the promised special boxes are now made, and I’ve been painting them. Without the prints on their faces, which will be applied at the last stage,  they don’t look much yet, but we thought some might be interested to see their “making of” photos. So here we go, enjoy the very first look into the 99 spirits Collectors Edition boxes:

On other news; War of the Human Tanks, our first release that got picked as the 4th best indie strategy game last year, is now featured in the Indie Royale. Alongside some great titles like Waveform, Avadon: The Black Fortress, Zafehouse: Diaries, Derrick the Deathfin and Tidalis. If your collection is missing any of these games, don’t miss this chance to grab them for a nice price.

Eclectic Delights Bundle

The Bundle in a Box press release started to roll out, for those that haven’t received it yet, I’ll paste it below. At the time of my posting this it is not on yet, so don’t panic. We submitted our upcoming game 99 Spirits to the Indie Dev Grant contest and I received this press release telling me to “feel free to promote your Indie Dev Grant submission“, so please vote for 99 Spirits on Indie Dev Grant when you buy the this bundle.

Eclectic Delights Bundle: Pay What You Want for 9 Great Indie Games


Having obsessively researched the wild and wonderful world of indie gaming, Bundle In A Box returns and is proud to present the Eclectic Delights bundle. It’s a fine assortment of 9 delightful, truly indie offerings everyone can enjoy for the most reasonable price of “pay-what-you-want” over at http://www.bundle-in-a-box.com/.

The bundle, a Kyttaro Games (http://www.kyttarogames.com/) effort to promote indie developers and quality games, is launching this Tuesday the 4th of December 2012, will last for 14 days and offer all games as DRM-free downloads (but not exclusively so; most games are also available on Desura and/or Steam ).


The Eclectic Delights bundle is all about …


… selecting the best and most intriguing games across all genres


Gamers will get to enjoy a rich compilation of both successful and less known games, that have all made it through the painful, slightly silly, but always thorough Bundle In A Box selection process.


…  fantastic indie games.


 Paying anything above $0.99 will get you:

-elegant RTS War of the Human Tanks (Windows/Desura)

-Lovecraftian yet cute platformer Eversion (Windows/Mac/Steam)

-Russian horror offering Fibrillation (Windows /Desura)

-point-and-click mystery Shadows of the Vatican, Act: I (Windows/Desura)


…  even more games.


Beating the average price will allow gamers to enjoy four more excellent games:

-award winning platformer Adventures of Shuggy (Windows/Steam/Desura)

-surreal horror game The 4th Wall (Windows)

-FMV rhythm-action-fighter Stay Dead (Windows/Mac/Desura)

-retro-tastique, hilarious maze-‘em-up Flibble (Windows)


…  directly supporting upcoming game developers.

… charity


5% of all revenues will be shared with the Hellenic Centre for Mental Health and Treatment of Child and Family.

Spirit Hunt Progress #1

Here’s a status update for those wondering just how the 99 Spirits localization is progressing.

Our current status is as follows:

  • The game’s graphics are edited.
  • System scripts are edited. I’d say their contents equal about 10% of the game’s total script, and were infinitely more work to translate.
  • Work on tutorials has begun.

Well, that was a short post. But it just means all is well in the world of 99 Spirits – at least, if you can overlook the rampant monsters laying waste to the capital.

Meanwhile, we’ve added a new character – or in this case, characters – in the 99 Spirits character gallery again! This time it’s Tony’s favorite character. In case you haven’t checked the character pages yet, we also prepared a little slideshow to show what you’re missing out on.


In other news, http://www.gamersgate.com/indiefort-bundle” is still going strong. There is still three weeks to go until our appearance in the bundle, but since the first week’s bundle is closing up soon, here is a list of the titles in the second bundle. Don’t miss the chance to grab the games so cheap.

Week 2:
Caster (STEAM)
Hegemony Gold: Wars of Ancient Greece (STEAM)
Strategic War in Europe (Greenlight)
Zombies (Greenlight)

Countdown Bundle

While we’re working on 99 Spirits, we most certainly haven’t forgotten War of the Human Tanks. We’ve been working hard behind the scenes to give as many people as we can reach the opportunity to enjoy the game.

IndieFort Countdown Logo

On that note, we’re happy to announce that War of the Human Tanks will be featured in the IndieFort Countdown Bundle!

WotHT will be included in the final week’s bundle from 12/21/2012 to 12/27/2012, but do check out the great lineup below – if you buy all of the previous weeks’ bundles, you will get the bundle with War of the Human Tanks innit for absolutely FREE.

How is that possible, you ask? Read on after the trailer.

Countdown Bundle is made of five separate bundles, a new bundle every week for five weeks. Each bundle is made of four games and priced at $4. For each bundle you buy, the next one will be $1 cheaper. So if you buy the first one, the second bundle is only $3; buy that and the next one is $2, going that way next one is $1 and the final bundle (that is to say, the one War of the Human Tanks is in) will be completely free.

That’s $10 for a total of 20 games at the end of five weeks. We also have bonuses that will unlock upon reaching set sales goals that include 7 more games, 6 OSTs and an add-on. Making the full price of everything you are getting for just $10 into a grand total of $250. A 96% discount is a deal you should not to miss.

We have also teamed up with the kind folks at the charity organization Help-Daniel. We are dedicating part of the proceeds from the full five weeks of sales to him, and want to reach out to the community for help in the hopes he makes a full recovery soon.

Since this bundle is hosted by GamersGate, you will get a key for everything there. Also the games on this bundle that have Steam versions already present will give Steam keys to add to your account. (Marked those with (STEAM) below) And the rest are all on Greenlight (except 2, here is a link to the Greenlight Collection) and you will get a Steam key for those when they are greenlit with your votes. So don’t forget to vote YES for them. (Marked those with (Greenlight) below)
