DO YOU VOODOO?
Full Mojo Rampage is a fast-paced exploration and action game that takes place within the confines of the Voodoo reality. In this realm only the most powerful rites and powers can provide a safeguard against evil. It includes cooperative and competitive gameplay, so you can enjoy the game in different ways with your friends. We are currently working with Windows/PC as the main platform, and maybe, if it makes sense, we will port it to Xbox 360, PS3 and WiiU in the future (ok, and maybe Xbox 720 and PS4!).
Over the Top Games is a small independent studio composed of six highly passionate developers. We have been working hard on this game for the past year and are excited to show you the fruits of our labor.
In this first update we want to share some of the details about the development of the game and explain a bit more about what you can expect to find when you play it.
FINDING YOUR MOJO
Welcome to the world of Full Mojo Rampage where you get to control a Voodoo keeper throughout his adventures. As the player you’ll need to guide him safely through each level whilst hunting for voodoo dolls and mojos. These mojos can be found throughout the game in the form of amulets and trinkets that bring him strength and luck. They also unleash an array of other powers that you can craft to your own advantage in order to truly master the terrible powers of Voodoo.
AN UNKNOWN WORLD
Since we started to develop Full Mojo Rampage we wanted to create a rogue-like game with some unique features that are not common to the genre. The first prototypes of the game were all done in 2D, with a top-down camera. Soon we realized that this would be a more impressive game if we changed to a 3D engine and a smooth mix of isometric and top-down camera… 3D brings a new dimension that adds beauty but at the same time increases the amount of work needed to create levels. After discussing some options we decided to go for a procedural level creation algorythm. In the next upcoming weeks we plan to post updates about this in our blog so you can learn about the different types of dungeons that you can explore in the game.
VOODOO GODS NEVER REFUSE ONE WHO ASKS FOR HELP
During the game you will can make pacts with the Voodoo gods to help you in your adventure, but… be careful traveler! Some gods are known to like to play tricks and challenge adventurers… and most of the time, these tricks and challenges are life threatening!
Hidden in the levels, you might find shrines to speak with gods like the crazy Baron Samedi, the kind Maddam Brigitte, the mysterious Dhamballa or others. These gods will provide unique situations and sometimes ask for specific deeds to be done in exchange for awesome abilities that change how you play the game.
MORE TO COME!
Full Mojo Rampage is currently in closed Alpha. And what does it mean? It means that we have already achieved a good amount of progress with the game. Soon we will be able to move to Open Alpha and make it available for the people that pre-order the game. Nevertheless, if you pre-order right now, you are helping an indie studio in its adventure to create a fabulous and outstanding game.
In future updates of the blog we plan to share some more details about the development process so you can all be updated.
