日本語でのプロジェクト説明はこちら

Survive and Receive the Devil's Admiration.

"Bless the Demon Puppets" is a ’hardgore' battle royale game. We are currently developing it as a PC game and plan to sell it via Steam.

30 participants become hideous beings. They must kill and eat each other; washing blood with blood in an epic struggle. The goal is to be the last survivor. Our ambition is to create a unique game in the battle royale genre. We promise to include features that stir up feelings of euphoria and dread.

Please enjoy vicious combat, aim to win, and raise your monster through the Devil's game - in a nightmarish world where blood flows, entrails fly through the air, and a piercing scream reverberates.

Use brutal methods to slay the other 29 participants. We hope that you can earn the Devil's recognition. You may enjoy the spectacle, at least.

 Take on the Role of a Pawn in the Devil's Game.

You start out as a "dead soul." You are suffering in endless agony. You desire nothing more than an escape from the torment of being beaten repeatedly for your sinful existence.

The demon puppets are used like playthings for a new game that the Devil came up with. Earning a respite from pain, they are manipulated like pieces in a board game. They must compete for first place. They must prove that they are the most powerful.

Miserable dead souls are raised from hell! They are delighted to slay each other and make up for their bitter and tragic fates. They think that perhaps there is still a way for their souls to be saved as they seek sedation and throw themselves into the calamitous struggle!

They don't know that a contract with the passionate devil can burn!

The Pitiful Dead Souls Are Blessed With Mighty Powers to Kill Each Other With

They slaughter an opponent and then consume a "Fetus" - the embodiment of a slain foe's clustered soul.
They can then collect the powers of devils to rapidly build up their strength. Eventually they are able to earn an "evolution" and attain extreme powers. 

 Each dead soul has a decided evolutionary process. Each one has its own attack methods and killing moves. It should be possible to pick a dead soul during matchmaking. Therefore we recommend that you choose carefully depending on the fighting area and enemies.  

The conflict can take place in areas with forests, ruins, a cemetery, and more in various patterns. You must come up with your own strategy to deal with changing gimmicks and obstacles in each area.

 Your survival depends upon whether or not you can quickly consume the "Fetus" of a fallen foe.  

Naturally, other silly souls will gather around you to nab a defeated enemy's "Fetus." Will you wander in search of vulnerable prey? Or will you trap an evolved apparition - and strive to slay it? The choice is yours.

 Slaughter, Strategy, and Dire Situations...

Even those who become intimidatingly powerful monsters early should stay attentive. Weaker challengers who remain can plant traps that poison, restrain, and more. The dead soul who acquires the one and only "Crown" on the battlefield is especially dangerous. You can find clever and resourceful ways to damage it. Maybe you'll have to plant traps yourself.  

If you try to rise up alone, then you will certainly be dragged back down by a bunch of familiar fellows. Such betrayal! No wonder these treacherous beings suffer below.  

In order to prevent you from growing idle as the survivors grow fewer in number - the devils gradually reduce the area that you can act in. Those fools who do not obey the will of the devils will certainly be punished like insects. Surely they would fail - no matter how hard they try to resist.

 Each monster has particular tendencies. These set traits and proclivities become more and more pronounced as the creature gets stronger. You can find ways to slay those that possess counters to your strengths - as long as you use the right amount of brains and brawn. Or you could just smile from a concealed position - and watch the others massacre each other.  

Of course, there are some skills that only you might possess. Raising the offensive power of your strikes, setting up your traps early, and other actions; all of these moves may save you when it counts.

Name: Meatfiend
Affiliated Devil: Kimaris
Attack Type: Short Range
Tendencies: Strong Against Irregular Units, Weak Against Midrange Units
An aggregation of fiendish souls that liked children - and murdered them. It is clever and headstrong. It challenges others bravely; but it cannot help being somewhat silly. It even disgusts Kimaris. For that reason, it is delighted to gratefully accept a hopeless situation and gruesome death.

Name: Talonie
Affiliated Devil: Gremory
Attack Type: Midrange
Tendencies: Strong Against Close Range Units, Weak Against Long Range Units
An aggregation of psychopathic souls that killed their relatives. Taking the extenuating circumstances into consideration; it is still very resentful about its descent into hell. Perhaps it deserves its disgrace. It is said that members of Gremory's army corps burn a hole into its abdomen to use for sexual gratification.

Name: Haemolacrian
Affiliated Devil: Bifrons
Attack Type: Long Range
Tendencies: Strong Against Midrange Units, Weak Against Irregular Units
An aggregation of drunken souls that deprived others of happiness. Even though it descended into hell; it is still soaked in alcohol. Bifrons catches it searching for booze - and uses its body as a candle. It has multiple eyes and constantly bleeds with terrible pain. But such distractions do not impede its fighting skills because it cannot comprehend the situation.

Name: Swinite
Affiliated Devil: Gaap
Attack Type: Irregular
Tendencies: Strong Against Long Range Units, Weak Against Close Range Units
An aggregation of foolish souls that killed and feasted on animals. It turns into a four-legged, beast-like apparition as it accumulates souls due to the sins that it committed. Gaap's subordinate devils hunt it for fun. They enjoy hearing its peculiar screams and utterances when they snag it.

Examples of Projects: "Kyoko Shojo - E.G.O.," "Kobitozukan Social Game," and many more. Based in Fukuoka City, Japan.
We have been developing many interactive programs for over 20 years during the age of Windows; for PCs, cell phones, and various smartphone platforms. We were working hard and didn't have a chance to appear on the crowdfunding stage - until now! We want to explore new horizons by making this battle royale game for everyone to enjoy!

 Greetings

We sincerely thank you for your interest in our crowdfunding campaign for
"Bless the Demon Puppets."
We are aware that "the majority of people may not understand the appeal" of a project like this. In order to overcome the difficulty inherent in developing a game that is different from existing ones - we are asking for support from those who wish to play the game. And so we decided to use crowdfunding to finance this project and support our goals.

Grotesque, absurd, and unethical expressions of creativity are not always welcomed in the real world. However, there are many unexplored possibilities when it comes to the development of "battle royale games." We believe that we can find such possibilities by developing this original work. We are very excited about it. By all means, we encourage you to become an supporter through crowdfunding. We hope that you will be pleased just watching our creation as it takes shape. 

We promise that you will be able to experience something new in "BLESS THE DEMON PUPPETS". 

We sincerely appreciate your visit to this page.

Risks and challenges

Risks
・Server Environment Architecture
Building a server environment where many different players can connect and disconnect from time to time without network stress for a battle royale genre game can be a challenge that takes time to solve.

・Solution
We believe that we can solve such challenges by using solutions like the Replication Graph offered by Epic Games; and Amazon's GameLift.
And in the unlikely event that it is difficult even with such options; we plan to do business with experienced companies in Japan.

・Game Balance Adjustment
Characters in the game and their basic abilities can undergo great changes in close quarters battle royale combat. So we expect that game balance adjustmentscould be difficult; and there is the possibility that we could run into some trouble.

・Solution
We would like to offer beta access as soon as possible. We will meticulously review users' treasured opinions. In fact, we plan to do balance adjustment for half of the development period!
