Coffee Update 08
Always Better

While wrapping up the content for one more dungeon we are also reviewing a few things that we didn’t got right just yet. For example, Guy’s Shockwave. The first effect wasn’t bad, but it didn’t look quite right. We’ve tried a couple of new tricks in this improved version, the form might be simpler but it works better.


In this update we are presenting you guys two newcomers: a vampire-mummy-like-dude and some sort of ratman. While the rat isn’t a danger he can be quite annoying, body slamming you and stealing your hard earned coins. The mumified guy is quite more dangerous, being able to cause this new “blind” effect with his bat swarm and, after a few successful bloodsucking swarms, he becomes all beefy and ready to shred you to pieces. Oh, he also gets faster and able to morf into a mist form. Yeah, we love you all that much.

Puberty Test

Good old Rethoric, the Skeleton Lord, got a remake of his own. In this newer and dapper version of himself the big skeleton is much more fun to watch, talk and fight against. A real gentleman, you will all find soon.

Well, that is it for now everyone! If you have any comments, doubts or suggestions, please, feel free to contact us here or in any other social media. We can be reached through Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr, it is your call.

Coffee Update 07

Our currently art efforts are focused on creating unique enemies. The fantasy setting is rich with references which is, at the same time, good and bad. It is good because you can count with thousand of images about pretty much any creature you can imagine, it is bad because it’s gonna take some extra time to get that special touch you’re aiming for.


We’ve been discussing what else we can give to the weapons in order for they to work better with certain playstyles. As you can see above every weapon has a very distinct hit area and animation speed. We will further tweak that attack speed - depending on the weapon type and power level – as we will also add a little recovery time between attacks, which also be variable accordingly to the weapon of choice.

Dark Biddings

Improving how enemies show up was badly needed. The player will now be able to tell where the next enemy will show up with quite some time to plan ahead. However it is not wise to spawn camp, the energized dark clouds will give you a shocking experience, if you know what we mean.

The Cycle of Life

We are still discussing which mechanics will allow Guy to recharge his lives, but one thing is for sure: he will be able to use savepoints in order to do that. Those savepoints are statues of the Life Goddess, a once cherished deity in the Wicked and Nefarious Land. Those memoirs of the past have just a faintful glow of what they once were, being able to fill up Guy’s lives just once per statue.

Well, that is it for now everyone! If you have any comments, doubts or suggestions, please, feel free to contact us here or in any other social media. We can be reached through Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr, it is your call.

We hope you all have a great week!

"No more wannabes" - Indie Game Magazine

" I’ve got to say that I’m pretty impressed with it. Also: It is hard. Basically, Guy vs the Wicked and Nefarious Land is game that has a lot in common with The Binding of Isaac. It’s not the same, of course, with Guy versus the Wicked and Nefarious Land concentrating much more on fighting waves of enemies, but the Zelda-inspired dungeons and the Roguelike inspirations certainly make for some comparisons. - Futile Position

"Para todos aqueles que gostam de rpg’s de ação 2D com muito humor, masmorras e monstros à mistura, Guy Vs. The Wicked and Nefarious Land é um jogo em que vale a pena dar uma vista de olhos. Mas preparem-se porque ele é hardcore e só os mais persistentes conseguirão sair vitoriosos." - Gaming Portugal

3.5/5 "Challenging top-down action game provides a test of finger speed, and occasionally, brain power too. Legitimately funny writing works well with the anime-influenced art style. Simple controls are effective in handling waves of enemies." - GameZebo

You're not on your typical dungeon crawler anymore. Guy vs. The Wicked and Nefarious Land comes to put up a challenge to the most skilled players.

BTW guys, don't shy away from PMing me, really. It might take sometime for me to go over the PMs, but I will answer them, I swear! Every feedback helps, really. We are close to release the early access here on Steam, giving access to all the new features and tweaks for the first dungeon, it will be really important that we get as much feedback as possible in that phase since it will dictate what we will do for the rest of the game. We might think that this thing is good, but it actually sucks and so on and so forth. So, feedback matters haha

Nonetheless, thanks once again for all the patience and support! :)

Thanks for the update

Oh no, it ain't dead, it is just coming together really, really slowly.

We are currently studying how to improve the engine in order to have a better resolution and increased FPS. I guess it is a good idea to write an announcement about that and the progress so far, isn't it?

Nonetheless, if you guys wanna see some more progress be sure to check out or our facebook page,

Your patience is appreciated and feedback is always welcome! Feel free to contact us!

Any news?

Hey there guys! :) We still don't have a date for release, we are still working on reviewing a lot of stuff, we apologize for that. We will release the (revamped) game for early access as soon as the first dungeon come together, since your input will be of great value in order to refine the experience. But we do promise that your wait will be worthwhile, we are really excited how things are coming together, this revamp will bring a new life to the game! Thanks for your patience and support, it is amazing. Stay tunned for more news and announcements!
