BLACKHOLE is available now!
Chapter "Sacred Library" in two more screenshots!
Description
Release date: Q1 2015
Go through an adventure inside of a black hole! No physical laws apply in here. Adventure arcade with logic elements, great atmosphere and awesome gameplay.

The story
It’s the year 2121 and planet Earth is endangered by black holes.

That’s why a team of elite astronauts was given just a single task: to eliminate and erase these black holes out of reality. The astronauts were doing just fine. But there is something more to closing black holes, something darker that not a single member of the crew could ever imagine.

One day the astronauts are encountered by a black hole so massive they are not able to avoid it by any means, and their whole ship, Endera, is absorbed into it. It seems everything came to an end. Though their spaceship crashes on an unknown Entity, which looks like a planet. The first person to gain consciousness is the not yet recognized member of the crew: YOU.

Together with the ship’s AI, you must reveal what really happened and if it is possible to repair the ship, save the rest of the crew and get back to Earth.



About the game
You control one of the crew members in the game. A fearless warehouser.

On his way, he is accompanied with the ship’s artificial intelligence which managed to load herself into a PDA during the accident. Our game is not just a funny adventure with a story, it actually is a stylized and hardcore arcade game. We focused on the character’s control - so that jumping is natural, fast and full of action at the same time. Advancing in the game is though quite relaxing and it only depends on you whether you want to get into the story or experience a real challenge.

The main task of the game is to collect “Selfburns” - clever nanobots in a knot, which are capable of repairing the ship. The more the player collects, the more he will proceed in the game. The game is about making logical decisions, accuracy and good timing. At this point, you might say it is just another arcade. And... You are right!

But there surely is a fly in the ointment: the gameplay is based on changing the force of gravity around you - not only the character’s, but also the surroundings and even some objects. By changing just your own gravity, you can reach places that would seem unreachable. So we can say the game is just a “2D arcade” and we add the other dimensions ourselves. One level is just like four others and it is only up to you if you can find the easiest and shortest way through.

The time is measured and recorded throughout every single level, so players will be able to share their best times with the others, either globally or just within the borders of their own countries. It is even possible to share videos of players’ records, so the others can see how you accomplished such a great time!

Our primary target is to tell a high quality, humorous story full of action. But we also love arcades that are not afraid of being a bit rigid, cruel and rewarding for 100% control over the keyboard. We want to care about the game even after it has been published, to create new levels or new chapters to the story.

Our goal is to give the players an arcade, which will be fun to play, which will be challenging and rewarding at the same time.

Features:
  • Story fun to play; but also epic
  • Fully dubbed dialogues and characters by professionals
  • Hand-drawn, FULL HD graphics, along with animations
  • Dynamic surroundings, 6 parts of the Entity, every single one with its own gameplay features
  • Possibility to compare results with other players - online competition for prices
  • Original soundtrack
  • Mysterious puzzles, hidden bonuses and attractive challenges for the bright ones
  • Playing with or without a story, you can decide
  • The game system made for long run gaming as well as for just a short, casual game.
  • Special levels for lovers of hardcore challenges.



Explore colorful caves, a lost city of an ancient civilization, feel the freezing winds of the mountains and don't be afraid to go through the terrifying jungle. Find a way to find all of the selfburns, avoid lethal obstacles, time your moves and get a 100% score in all levels! This is a perfect arcade for hardcore gamers and for those, who want to try some brand new, fresh adventure!

The whole game is divided into acts. All acts will be released at once. Every act contains a set of levels. As you will go further in the game, you will reveal some side activities, which you can (but don't have to) ignore. You can talk with up to 7 other characters. You will reveal the secret of the artificial intelligence, Auriel, and will solve the mystery of a magic potion - Coffee!

The cast

English version of the game features:
  • Kira Buckland as Auriel
  • Blake Swift as Selassie
  • more actors will be announced soon!

The Team
Since 2002, we are a group of friends.

And we apply our minds to developing computer games and create crazy multimedia projects. Our studio is in Prague, but everyone comes from a different part of the country. One of our colleagues is even from Slovakia!

Our last title was a fairytale adventure PacIn: Revenge of Nermesssis. The game was only published in Czech Republic and Slovakia. It was quite a success, with more than 5000 sold copies. What’s more, our team also creates the czech TV show about games - Indian. Our goal and motivation for the future is to create games, wonderful pieces with a huge load of love towards the game design.



Alpha version of the game
The Blackhole game is now in the alpha phase.

For Greenlight’s purposes, we created a DEMO LEVEL, partly representing all aspects of the project we want to eventually present, which you can see above. The adventure part with dialogues. Then an action, jumping and a logical part. But we do not want to create just “another arcade”. Our concept includes much more freedom when it comes to the game’s progress, atypical system of platforms, competitions with record times, communication with other players and much more!

Why you aren't with this project on Kickstarter?
We are not going on Kickstarter for one simple reason: we want to present the project by ourselves as it is.

And we want you to know that the game can be financed by ourselves. We want to interest you with just a presentation. And the sureness that the game will be as we dreamed about it. No compromises, no big changes, no discarding ideas and especially: no stretch goals.

Will be this game good?
The Blackhole game should primarily make you happy.

At the same time: It might enrage you or make you cry every now and then - that is only up to our level designer. But we are going to be the first who will feel these emotions. And by that we mean that we give the fate of our game.. straight into your hands.

Greenlight for Blackhole just started!
Give us a YES!, if you like the project.

Or give us a comment on what you think. If you have any queries, don’t hesitate to ask!

Join the crew of the Endera spaceship and experience a crazy adventure of a totally mad company!

You can contact us on the email: contact@fiolasoft.cz , dont hesitate to send us anything related!
We have open mind for feedback and opportunities.
