Some new features

In News by Daniel Sun23 Comments

Don’t worry, there are no April Fools jokes here. Let’s talk development!

Armed with Wings Rearmedย is coming along nicely! I exhibited Rearmed at iFest in Melbourne and got a ton of positive feedback! I’ve done a blog post over at, go check it out for more specifics on iFest. Players had a chance to play my new build, with lots of cool features. Here are just a few improvements I’ve made over the past couple of weeks:

Drop rocks on enemies


The eagle can pickup and move around items such as rocks, keys and weights. There have been countless times where I’ve seen players try to drop a rock on top of an enemy, and upon realizing it can’t be done, they become disappointed. Now you can! You can totally drop rocks on enemy heads! Look!ย It deals no damage, but it’s funny none the less. Perhaps the weights could crush an enemy completely….

SkullVine enemy


A new enemy type as appeared! Remember those flaming skulls from Armed with Wings 3? Remember how annoying they where? We’ll now they are back… only way cooler and less annoying! These guys are skulls attached to vines that hide in the ground, popping up when you’re near by. They can also shoot energy bullets! They take time to charge up, but the bullet are very fast!

Updated prop art


Take a look at the foorpad – it’s now surrounded with a cool, animated structure which also lights up when you touch it. This was a crucial update, as the original floorpads where unnoticeable – now these are VERY noticeable!
I’ve also improved the the rock switch asset hasn’t been updated since 2008. You may remember that it was a black rectangle with a red square on the top. Now it actually has an interesting shape! Also, when you drop the rock on top, it has a cool light effect and pulse.

Soldier update


The standard soldier enemy has also received some love with a brand new animation set! I’ve also adjusted his attack speed, and he does 2 strikes instead of one. Before, he was boring, ugly and predictable. Now, he’s just far more interesting.

I’ve got more levels in the works, and even more enemy types coming too! I’ll keep ya’ll posted on more development news next week!

Any questions? Sound off in the comments below, or shoot me an email



  1. I really like these updates, especially the updated prop art one. Games looks amazing so far, really good job.

  2. Hello Daniel. It’s great to hear just a few of these changes in Rearmed, and it’s not surprising that you would receive so much positive feedback. Your creations could become revolutions. I have a few questions.

    What other gameplay changes will we see in your game? We’ve already seen the dual-wielder and more skilled dodging gameplay. Will there be any more enemies besides the skullvine dude (he’s pretty cool)?

    Will you give out any more Beta keys T-T

    Is there a toggle between classic and Rearmed background and enemies?

    I think the description of the game said it had 25 levels. How many more will you make? How long will you continue to update Rearmed?

    Any future plans for Versus and THEBIGONE?

      Hey Alex! I’ve got a few more enemies that I haven’t talked about. I’d like to add AS MANY LEVELS AS POSSIBLE before launch – so lets hope for MORE than 25 levels. I will be giving out more beta keys in the future, keep your eyes glued to facebook ๐Ÿ˜€
      There is not a toggle between the graphics of the original vs rearmed. Rearmed Rearmed updates, I think I’ll support it for awhile :).
      The BIG ONE is…. certainly big ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Tnx for the reply daniel about the 3d and extra character thing. And oh does the rock dropping affects the dual wielders? could you make him like dodge it or do something hilarious?

      1. I think that it would be cool if you could black mist summons? like if you could summon previous bosses by using power from your special bar, sort of like a special attack and can stay as long as you have the energy, maybe like one energy per second, maybe two, i don’t know but it love the armed with wings series and have played all the games (haven’t beat them all though) and really want this series to take off, so good luck!

          Hey Bjorn, that’s actually an amazing idea. I doubt i’ll be able to add that feature into Rearmed, but will keep it in mind for future games. Cheers!

  4. I’m wondering if you ever thought of trying to release this franchise on console. I always thought a full third person perspective RPG-like game would work for AWW. I’m probably getting ahead of myself though.

      This is a long term goal. I’d love to get the games on console.

  5. I waiting so much for this episode, i finished all the others and love the serie, but i’d like to know if there is a date for this game? when will it be ready to be played?

  6. don’t you think that the combat system in culmination was pretty nice and simple? and don’t know about this remake, but I think every1 would be pleased to see it once again. as noticed, in each episode of the game, there were various combat systems. I am wondering whether you kind of play with it just to find the best one or rather I have no clue :P. Regards.

      I LOVE the combat system in Culmination. Each Armed with Wings game is made differently from the last and so the combat in Rearmed differs from Culmination. You’ll see – it’s awesome ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. hey Daniel. You really need another blog post. I still keep tabs with your Facebook, but I want an in-depth blog post updating on what you’re doing with Rearmed, Versus, and possibly THEBIGONE. I need a bit of assurance of what to expect in the future and when.

    1. P.S. I cannot see your Twitch videos. Even up to 24 hours after you posted, it’s just a loading screen. It’s also impossible for me to take part in your livestreams because our timezones are so different. I only get to see your posts like half a day later.

  8. This game is so cool with perfect story and style design. I’m so suprised meet with this game.

  9. Hey It’s me again, i was wondering, didn’t Leo kill off Vandheer Lorde in the 3rd game? So if he did HOW is he still in power? Do just not have time to come up with a new story line? I’m not hating on the game or you but it is a little wierd how the story raely7 changes from game to game.

      Rearmed is a remake of the original Armed with Wings – Vandheer rules the world!
