The Projects

I have good news! Armed with Wings will be returning THIS YEAR!

BEFORE THE YEAR ENDS THERE WILL BE MORE GAMES TO PLAY

Since the release of Culmination in 2011, I’ve been somewhat busy furthering developed characters, story and artsyle all to prepare for THEBIGONE – more news on at the bottom.

In the meantime I’ve got two other projects in the works:


Armed with Wings 1 Remastered (not final title)

This is a vast improvment on the original game featuring the following NEW content:

  • Updated art/Animation
  • Additional Levels
  • New Audio
  • New Animated cutscenes

This game will be release first, and it will be a side by side release with my new website. Expect it soon, with active dev blogs starting next week right here on armedwithwings.com


Armed with Wings Remix (also not final title)

Remix is still rather early in development, it’s final direction not fully planned yet either.

Features include:

  • Leo playable
  • Lone Warrior playable
  • Vandheer playable
  • Survival deathmatch

I’ve also got local multiplayer vs mode working in some capacity – and it’s FUN – rather smashbros like. With that said, it may only be included in a standalone, downloadable version. UNLESS I can find someone who could add online functionality – that would be cool!


The BIG ONE

The Ultimate Armed with Wings game… the BIG ONE! Still in very early stages. This will be a huge effort in which I will require much time and money in order to truely realize. As I’m looking at various funding options I really hope that fans of my games might be willing to participate in crowd funding on somekind. Would you support Armed with Wings?

That’s about all I have for today. Please take the time to share this article to fellow gamer friends and anyone else really. Would be much appreciated!

WHERE IS ARMED WITH WINGS DAMMIT!?!??!

Good point my friends… good point indeed.

The above image are some comments posted to my ArmedwithWings facebook page. Culmination was released November 2011… Since that time I’ve not yet released a new Armed with Wings game. I have reasons why, but this blog post isn’t about that….

2-3 years has gone in a blink of an eye, BUT it  is a longtime especially for someone who is 15-16. I imagine I have many teenage fans who have been waiting and waiting – I’m so sorry! I do hope you find refuge in my facebook posts.

I want to let everyone know that Armed with Wings is will come! It’s been far too long and I MUST produce more games. But here is the thing… I need your help!

PATREON: SUPPORT THE CREATORS YOU LOVE
I plan on launching a Patreon this month. Patreon is a platform SIMILAR to Kickstarter – in which it exists to raise money for creative people to produce things. The idea is that you donte money every month from as little as $1 – $XXXX to help support creative producers like myself. In return, you are contributing to projects you love and want to see.

In my case, this will help greatly. Time is money, thus I hope that Patreon will help to tip the scales in the favor of Armed with Wings. I’ve got some cool reward ideas + perks for those who donate: things like immediate access to my development builds, inclusion in game credits, artwork requests, sketch book giveaways… lots of things to be excited about.

Here are some example patreons:

Yotam Animations - Some random animator I found on Patreon – examples of reward perks.

OpenFL – I’m personally a Patron for this framework – Allows me to create powerful games using the familiar Flash-style game development flow. They don’t have very good reward perks (which is fine by me, I just want to help the guys who make these tools)

Enough about Patreon… lets move onto:

Character Sheets

Earlier this year I decided I needed a Character Sheet for EVERY Armed with Wings character. You may have seen a few already, here is a new one:

Here is a rough one:

IMAG0219

My friends, as part of creating an Armed with Wings Art Bible – I need every character down. The ‘BIG ONE’ is still in early phases, I need to have everything COMPLETELY cemented in design.

That’s all I have time for this morning. I’ll be updating this blog weekly.
I’ll leave you with a reminder of whats happening on my end:

 

Quick status update

This is the year of Armed with Wings! Currently there are 3 Armed with Wings projects brewing… I’ll list them in order of release.

Armed with Wings Survival game (working title)
Choose a characters, select a battlefield, smash tons of enemies! The game will feature multiple characters, multiplayer/co-op of some capacity, survival mode and other varied game modes (think event matches in smash bros). Aiming for a march release.

Armed with Wings Collection
Replay the original games with shinny new graphics! More levels, better performance, less bugs + bonuses!!!! No release date planned just yet.

Armed with Wings (THE BIG ONE)
More on this later. But here is a new speed painting video!

Hope this give this site a facelift soon.

That’s all.

AwW Concept speed art

Armed with Wings is beautifully illustrated in this new speed video! I hope as I develop the BIG ONE, it will reflect this clean, detailed silhouette style. Of course the BIG ONE is still far from reality – but consider this a peak into the future!

The final artwork can be seen here: http://www.armedwithwings.com/?p=126

Armed with Wings Survival Game

Followers of my Armed with Wings Facebook page might have seen some video of Leo in Culmination…. For the past few days I’ve been working on getting Leo into Culmination.

The reason? I intend to make an Armed with Wings Survival game in which Leo is a playable character!

The result… speaks for itself:

I’ll be working very hard to get this game out very soon! You guy’s deserve some more Armed with Wings!

Armed with Wings Official Website!

Welcome everyone! Welcome to the official Armed with Wings website! I am Daniel Sun – the creator of the Armed with Wings series. This site will act as my vessel to deliver consistent updates on the ongoing development of Armed with Wings! I will note that this is only a temporary design… In time I will shoot this site with my Graphical Makeup Shotgun making it far more beautiful.

Armed with Wings is a series of short flash games released for browser. These games are built upon Flash technology and are totally free! The first game was release in April 2008… there are now 5 games in the series: Armed with Wings 1, 2, 3, Red Moon & lastly Culmination. If you’re yet to play these games, please go to the Flash Games page and PLAY THEM ALL!

The series is concluded with AwW 3, however there will be more games to come. Followers of my AwW Facebook page will know that there is to be a NEW Armed with Wings. For now, let us call it thee ‘BIG ONE’… It’s True! There will be a new Armed with Wings – but far more greater than all the previous games combined! It’s still in early phases – production is still yet to start… but isn’t that exciting in itself? I will document, blog, stream every step of development.

The new game as been in my mind since 2011. The ‘BIG ONE’ was supposed to be in development more than a year ago… but the reality is that reality is cruel. Bad news is that certain complications have delayed the production for over 12 months. In that time I was creating smaller games to sustain income – Samurai Autumn, Mega Boulder Rampage are a few of these projects. For more details on this depressing stage of my life read article I Cant Sleep.

The good news is that within those 12 months I’ve learned an unfathomable amount of knowledge not just limited to skillets… knowledge that will result in a far better game had I started development 12 months ago. A small door of opportunity has recently been opened and I can take the fullest advantage if I play my cards right. The launch of this site is the beginning of great acts!

So I ask that you gather together and support me and in return I will reveal new details, artwork, ideas and opportunities to for you to be involved on may different levels. Making this game will be a huge journey and I want all my fans & followers of AwW to be able to witness the creative process.

Be prepared!
