It’s been a while since I drew anything this detailed… Looks like it’s going to take me a long time to draw all of the bosses. Will be animating them this time too.


Working on a new game!

2014-03-26 11:42:05 by matt-likes-swords

Started working on Bullet Heaven 2!

I'm using Starling for it, so it'll run a lot smoother than the previous game, and have more special effects.
The aim is to release it on mobile devices, and later on the web.



EBF4 on Humble Store!

2014-03-16 16:27:22 by matt-likes-swords

For anyone who doesn't like Steam or wants a completely DRM-free copy of Epic Battle Fantasy 4, I've set up my own store page for it, using Humble Bundle's system.

It's the exact same version as on Steam, except without the Steam features.

Anyway, that's probably the last news post about EBF4, until there's some major discounts or something. I'm gonna take a break, and then go debug Cat Cafe or something.

Fanart Incentive Scheme! + Boobs

2014-03-04 15:23:08 by matt-likes-swords

Hey guys. I feature a lot of EBF fanart on the Facebook page and on my website, and have decided to start giving free Steam copies of EBF4 to anyone who gets featured.

Also, for anyone who’s done fanart, you should go post it in Steam’s community section for EBF4.

The first week on Steam has went pretty well btw! Decent amount of sales, and not many serious complaints. Mostly just people moaning about how it's a Flash game.


And here's some art from bocodamondo, to get your attention.



EBF4 out on Steam!

  • Support for different window sizes and fullscreen resolutions.

EBF4 Almost on Steam

2014-02-17 12:53:26 by matt-likes-swords

Hey guys, Epic Battle Fantasy 4 is almost ready for Steam!

I've got achievements, multiple resolutions, cloud saving, and all of that stuff working. The game looks and sounds much better with uncompressed audio and bigger bitmaps.

All that's left is finishing off the store page and finalizing things with Valve, which hopefully will only take a few days.


EBF4 Expansion Released

2014-01-31 15:12:19 by matt-likes-swords

EBF4: Battle Mountain has been released on Kongregate! Battle Mountain is a challenging new area which includes 8 new bosses, new equips, and survival and endurance battles. Everyone who purchased the Premium Pack gets the update for free, otherwise it's $10. This version now has all of the content that the Steam version will have.

But do not fear! There's also a lot of updates for the free version, including new bosses and music. So it's worth replaying the game if you've wanted to.


The Steam version is coming soon, probably before the end of February. It'll have trading cards, cloud saving, tons of achievements, and all of that cool stuff. Also considering bundling in the soundtrack.


Some people may not have noticed yet, but you can find Santa gear in EBF4, as well as Christmas tree slimes. This stuff only appears in December!877736_138798961552_xmasebf4.jpg

EBF4: testing stuff

2013-12-16 12:48:36 by matt-likes-swords

The EBF4 expansion is nearing completion and I'm currently alpha testing the new enemies and other stuff. I'm not going to have anything new to post for a while, except for the occasional screenshot. So here's some screenshots of the new bosses in action! (I can post multiple images now, yay!)877736_138721581993_golem.jpg877736_138721596341_blackhole.jpg
