Huge Bang Bang is a side-scrolling MOBA. It adds typical ingredients of RPG like changing your character’s weapons and equipment. It draws inspiration from great works of science-fiction, but also from major games such as Worms and Diablo.

It is above all a surprising mix of platform, RPG and action. All the ingredients make a unique recipe to bring a new taste to a genre much appreciated by gamers: MOBA! In numerous battle arenas inspired by the History of Earth, 2 teams of 4 face off in various modes. Constantly evolving, Huge Bang Bang will offer new weapons, skins, skills and much more…

Our aim is that every gamer, no matter what the level, feels free to enter the arena. That being, of course we also see Huge Bang Bang in competition: all you gladiators in spirit can take on the gamers’ best! 

 

In the year of 5616 Tchiss Era, XXI Century Earth time, a shuttle from Planet Adryss encounters the space probe Pioneer 10 finding a metal plate depicting humans and how to get to their planet.  

Fascinated by this unexpected discovery, the Adryss supreme leaders are eager to find out more about these humanoids.They dispatch an undetectable shuttle with a camouflage expert to collect information on humans and their planet. The mission is a swift success: the expert retrieves photos, a computer, a history book and many other treasures…

Scientists examine the retrieved elements. Instant enthousiasm for these findings spreads within the Adryss population. A TV channel seizes the opportunity of creating a show called Huge Bang Bang which will change every day life on Adryss forever. The show’s producers take the concept further by creating holographic battle arenas, inspired by settings and main events in the History of Earth. From the start, thousands of cameras are pointed at human avatars controlled by the champions from all over Planet Adryss.

That’s when you come in and try your luck at becoming the best in this new TV sport contest. Fortunately, you have a coach...  even if he’s a bit dubious... to help you start out on your calling.

 

Adryss are aliens made essentially of viscous matter, making them squishy as a sponge. With no feet, they move like slugs. For them, physical violence has always been severely punished. Indeed, Planet Adryss has lived for thousands of years in peace. However, after discovering human civilization, things will change drastically for the inhabitants. The TV Show Huge Bang Bang, once launched, is followed by every Adyrss without exception. You are part of the Show! You are a Gladiator!

Before, you were an honest little slug, but now, you are set to battle against terrifying enemies on Huge Bang Bang. To get there, a somewhat dubious coach – you forgot his name – offers you a vessel with all tools needed to connect to the battle arenas. Soon it all begins! You will control a human-like numeric avatar, with weapons, equipment, skills and statistics you alone have chosen.

 The Keeper

 The Shooter

 

 The Scourge

 

Since October 2015, we have been working relentlessly so that Huge Bang Bang will live up to our expectations. The game’s first alpha version is near to completion. The Pirate’s Den arena is up and running and many gamers have been able to test it on Games Conventions we attended. The feedback is more than positive. This arena is full of secret passages letting you sneak up and attack the enemy team!

Game Modes on Release

Battle Arenas  

In Battle Arena mode, gamers pit their skills and strategies to overcome the enemy team’s boss. In 4 vs 4, the team’s cohesion must stay sufficient in order to prevail. 

Cold War  

At time of release, Cold War will still be under development. Instead of direct confrontation, gamers’ mission will be to defend their base and send forth creatures to attack enemies!

Matchmaking  

Huge Bang Bang will be adapted to every type of gamer, from the skilled strategist to the reckless and daring. The game experience must be as fun as possible, so matchmaking will evolve with every step in the game’s development. However, when the game comes out, playing on different levels will be possible.

 

 

In the principle mode of Huge Bang Bang, you will need to be the more resourceful to defeat the enemy Boss! Your best weapon? Team spirit! In 4 vs 4, in majestic arenas, you must prove courage and determination to get to triumph over your enemies. The maps are brimming with secret passages and hostile creatures: coordinate your attacks and follow the right path to surprise your enemies!

Before you begin  

Before each battle, you are an Adryss in a space vessel. Thanks to a character creating module, you create your human avatars, choosing their appearance, but also distributing their statistics points and equipping them with weapons and shields you unlocked. Once ready, just launch the game and enter into the arena!

In the midst of battle  

Before both teams’ Crokyss and the Jungle creatures appear, another creature, the Octryss, genetically created by the Adryss, awaits you in the center of the arena: a huge eye, with arms, protected by robotic armor, moving by means of tiny silent reactors under its frame. Deactivate it to let the real game commence!

Measure up to rivals, prove your worth  

Thanks to gold and experience gained by overcoming your enemies, you can improve your stuff. But don’t forget your faithful Crokyss! They too can reinforce your defense lanes and support the war effort, if you spend a little gold. As you move on in the game, you can also improve your creatures’ assault waves.

After the game  

Depending on your performance, you will win more or less experience and coins to unlock equipment, new weapons and new skills for your character.

The Crokyss  

The game’s minions, we call Crokyss, are present in the arena. You may decide to improve them. Increase their damage, their defense, change their weapons: make them your best allies!

Equipment  

Depending on your profile and the way you play, you can equip your characters with pieces of armor of your choice. These will influence all of their statistics and it will be possible to combine several: head, chest, legs and back.

Weapons  

In Huge Bang Bang, you can also get different weapons. Your characters can use remote weapons, like energy guns, but also close combat weapons.

 

 

 

You are an Adryss and control a human avatar. You can create and design several and so change roles within your team.  

These human avatars can be equipped from head to foot, depending on the level:  

  • Head unlocks at Level 4 
  • Chest unlocks at Level 6 
  • Legs unlock at Level 8 
  • Back unlocks at Level 10
  • Single or double-handed weapons is unlocked from start 
  • Left hand is unlocked from start 

Each element can equip any of the gamer’s characters, stored away in a chest, common to all the characters. 

Each gamer can be equipped with a close combat or a remote weapon.

Crokyss

  • The Keeper  

Sword in hand and protected by shield, the Keeper advances on the front line. The most resistant of Crokyss: the best of brawn! Every second assault wave, he drops a life capsule – pass over it and you will regain 5% of your maximum life.

  • The Scourge  

Well hidden behind the Keeper, scourges appear two by two in each wave of Crokyss. They love to spit acid on their enemies. Simply delightful! Every second wave, they drop a mana capsule – pass over it and you will regain 8% of your maximum mana.

  • The Shooter

At the back of the other Crokyss, he is biggest and most powerful of them all. This Crokyss somewhat sly is armed with an energy gun using it to attack enemies from a distance. At every assault wave, the Shooter drops munition – pass over it, you will regain a charger.

The Octryss

 

Before both teams’ Crokyss and jungle creatures appear, your mission is to deactivate the Octryss. This creature was genetically created by the Adryss. It’s a huge eye, with arms, protected by robotic armor, moving by means of tiny silent reactors under its frame.

Even though the Octryss cannot injure you, it possesses a regenerate and speed factor making it difficult to attack. If it is not deactivated within two minutes, the Octryss is teleported out of the arena and the game can commence!

The Dervyss Mercenary  

A magnificent and enigmatic creature whose origin is the grand voyager race Dervyss. Formidably dangerous and powerful, she uses the martial art Kaot’ze with metal claws grafted to her two hands. Nothing stops her! Look out if you cross her path in the arena!

The Huge Bang Bang

Oh yes! This is where the game’s name comes from!  

The Huge Bang Bang is in the center of the arena, the Boss of each team. Its strength makes it the most dreaded creature in the arena. You must beat it to be sure to triumph over you enemies.

The Terror

An enormous, dreadful and very powerful creature, it attacks feet forward. It is always in company of two Little Terrors. Apart from bringing experience and gold, it can also give you a buff.

The Pirate’s Den

The Pirate’s Den is a magnificent arena inspired by the best of pirate films. But watch out Matey: no slacking on deck! Made of three lanes, this map is bursting with intricate passages to allow different attack strategies.

The Adryss Arena

The Adryss Arena is the official arena of the TV show Huge Bang Bang. It draws its inspiration directly from the Coliseum of Rome. An immense space base, in orbit around Planet Adryss with each day millions of viewers tuning in to most epic jousting of the galaxy. The competition is tough and contestants must put all they have into winning!

Founding of the Company

Thanks to expert professional advice, Yannick PALOMINO founded PALOMINO STUDIO on January 18th 2016. Located in the sunny south of France, the Studio rapidly attracted partners willing to help its progression. At the same time, a Team of around fifteen contributors rallied around Yannick Palomino to begin a great project: the video game Huge Bang Bang. In March 2017, the studio integrated the Sud Roussillon startup incubator, allowing a major part of the development team to at last have a suitable workspace and at the same time became Laureate of Réseau Entreprendre who actively support young start-ups with undeniable potential.

 

 

Creating Huge Bang Bang 

Our adventure, is above all, the adventure of a group of enthousiasts. With finances being little to none, we were able to get to work on Huge Bang Bang as early as 2015, with an already precise idea of how the game should be. The team’s love of cinema, literature and science fiction literally fed the Huge Bang Bang. We strove to make our game a fine mix of genres, at the crossroads of RPG, MOBA and the best of science fiction. In a nutshell, our wish was to bring to gamers a brand new fun experience. Even if the concept of side-scrolling was there from the first instants of development, we put an emphasis on the cartoon graphics after just a few months. The comics slant to Huge Bang Bang was born! The background being immensely rich, we had to stall our ambitions to the realm of the possible given our tiny budget. Balancing of games is not quite ideal, but the weapons and equipment are key elements we are really proud of. Recently, we attended conventions all over France, testing with gamers our Huge Bang. So much positive feedback coming our way could only boost even more our determination!
 

 

Today, our goal is to finalize the alpha version of Huge Bang Bang for release in Early Access on Steam. However, we find ourselves at a stage where self investing is no longer sufficient. We’re up to almost 90% of the alpha. We have stabilized multi-gamer battles to 3 vs 3 (network architecture being fine-tuned to get to 4 vs 4), and the Crokyss are up and running. But there is still work to do. We want to add as soon as possible more of the creatures in the Game Design Document, and another mode. Music is another goal, the very important sound design.

 

To get Huge Bang Bang out on Steam, we have to complete the alpha development. After almost two years of work, we are at a key point in the creation of Huge Bang Bang. If we got this far, it is down to sheer willpower. We never gave up, working for the most part in our own spare time. Step by step, code by code, this terrific adventure has led us to hatch this version of Huge Bang Bang. We have put our all into this. Thanks to this Kickstarter, we hope to take Huge Bang Bang much further. Our project is ambitious, and as for every ambition, we need backing to achieve it. Today, one of our biggest challenges is to set up the servers!

We are first and foremost passionate, adventurers set on one unique ambition: bring you entertainment and dream. Our strength? Ability to listen. Firstly to the gamers and their remarks, but also within the team.

Just like Buzz Lightyear in Toy Story, we expect to go « To Infinity and beyond!”

Meet the Team:

 

 Our aim is to make sure Huge Bang Bang backers are duly rewarded.

 

Once our main goal is reached, we still have plenty more fantastic ideas for making improvements, such as the arrival of new arenas.
