Q: Who is making this game?
Bombernauts is being made by Tyler Glaiel (code, design), Sven Ruthner (art), and Danny Baranowsky (music).
Q: When does it come out?
The game is in active development and is quite far away from what we consider to be complete, but it's super fun right now and we're looking into ways of letting people play it early, but no plans have been made yet.
Q: How much will it cost?We haven't decided yet.
Q: Screenshots?Here: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5
Q: How does it play?The only way to kill a player is to knock them off the platform into the lava. You can throw TONS of bombs around to try to do this, there's no limit to how many you can throw! If you die, you become a ghost that floats around the battlefield, and you are periodically allowed to throw a ghost bomb back in. If you get a kill with the ghost bomb, you respawn and get a second chance at victory (though, as a zombie). Last one standing earns that sweet, sweet victory.
Q: Mods? Custom Game Modes?We have tons of ideas for custom game modes and special powerups, and there will be plenty of ways to customize how you play. Powerup customization similar to the Super Smash Bros series, plus being able to set permanent powerups for all players (such as all jetpack mode), or which powerups get rewarded for doing certain things in game. There is also a level editor. I hope to add mod support if the community demands it eventually, but that probably wont be at release.
Q: Online Multiplayer?
Yes! The game is primarily online multiplayer, I don't even have a working local mode yet. Though it's on the to-do list. A lot of the game mechanics have been designed to hide the effects of lag in an online environment, so it should be really smooth.
Q: Can I play it?
Shoot me an email [tyler at tylerglaiel dawt com] if you're press or a (medium-large) youtube personality, as I'm prioritizing them for early demos. We're working on letting everyone get to play it as soon as we can.
Q: Can I make videos of it?
Yes, and you can monetize them too.
Q: I signed up for the beta on twitter a long time ago?
As soon as the beta is ready, I'll email you guys.
Q: What's the game made with?
Q: You didn't answer my question!
