Behold! Our Next Game: Grave Chase!

[click here for high quality video]

I know things have been relatively quiet on here as of late, but whenever things get quiet, you can rest assured it's because I'm working on a big project, and that's certainly the case here. I'm extremely excited to announce Grave Chase as our next game! I've been wanting to make a new Halloween horror game for years now, so it's great to have this next spooky adventure to share with all of you. It's also our first one coming to Steam for Mac & PC, so I'm eager to bring our games to a whole new audience as well.

Grave Chase is a retro-inspired 2D horror action game in which a brother & sister must survive the month of October in the deadly graveyard of a ghoulish groundskeeper.

The Groundskeeper always keeps his graveyard full. Not by having clients, but by killing all the people in town, and throwing their body parts into open graves! One night, however, he murdered the parents of two kids who saw the whole act take place. Now, they've sworn to get revenge using science... and shovels! Together, these siblings hatched a plan to go into the graveyard, dig up body parts, and use science to turn them into an army of monsters to tear the Groundskeeper limb from limb.

It's not going to be easy though, for the Groundskeeper patrols the graveyard constantly with his lantern, searching for trespassers whom he can relentlessly chop into pieces with his meat cleaver. As they traverse his nightmarish graveyard, the siblings will also have to use their shovels to battle hordes of the undead, blobs, axe-wielding psychopaths, ghosts, mummies, and much more. Hey, it's a graveyard; who else do you expect to be hanging around in there late at night?

Grave Chase features old school 2D pixel art, a steady flow of spooky new enemies throughout the game, 31 stages of increasing difficulty, 4 additional unlockable game modes for even more replay value, over 50 achievement medals, special power-ups, an all original soundtrack, windowed or fullscreen play, gamepad support, and you can choose to play as the girl or boy while the other stays home and builds monsters using the body parts you collect.

I hope you're excited as I am about the game. Please take a moment to Vote for it on Steam Greenlight (your votes REALLY help the game) and drop a comment below to lemme know what you think!

This looks really cool. I voted for it! :)

Looks cool. Will it be like, randomly generated like a roguelike, or is it the same levels/monsters each run?

Cool, looks like "Zombies Ate My Neighbors" mixed with "Festers Quest", and adding your classic "Doc Mocks Monster Time".

But isn't Steams Greenlight going to be canceled soon?

Now that's interesting, Steam is making people show their interest before greenlighting.. last I checked they let any ol' person with a bunch of stolen assets sell their game on Steam. In any case, with your pedigree and portfolio they should be pounding down your door to host your game! Well we'll see anyway..

A-bomb - Thanks for voting for the game! The more votes we get, the sooner we can figure out when we'll be able to release it on Steam.

Choco - The tiles and enemy monster spawn are always randomly generated, but the stage layouts are the same. Believe me, the game gets challenging enough as it is without making it like a roguelike haha ;)

Conan - Zombies Ate My Neighbors was actually a big inspiration for the aesthetics of Grave Chase! Glad you picked up on that. As for Steam Greenlight, they are replacing it sometime this year with Steam Direct, but any game currently in Steam Greenlight that gets greenlit before the switch will still make it through. So right now we just need people to vote for it and we'll see what happens.

ColdFusion - That's how it's always worked on Steam Greenlight as far as I know. But yeah, a lot of people with stolen assets or projects that they spent virtually no effort on putting together have been submitted to Steam over the years. As a result, it can sometimes be tricky finding the good games amidst all the forgettable ones. Thanks for the compliments on the game, and please give it a vote when you have a chance!
