Otem has been greenlit!!!!
Otem´s Defiance reviewed by Puro Games
Release date: To Be Announced

A dodge-and-shoot videogame set on a circular stage, where you run around while enemies that fall on the center of the stage attack. You collect energy orbs and shoot them on their weak spots while aided by power ups that appear on the ring. As they die, more fall and stack up until none are left. The enemies feature different attack patterns while creating also obstacles and traps. All of these elements come together for a unique, challenging quick reflexes skill experience.


You are Otem, a young kid who has been chosen as the the tribute for a yearly sacrifice ritual customary in the land of Aterra. The tributes are supposed to run around in The Rings, as it’s mysterious entities, The Ringods, attack them until they’re satisfied… and kill them.. However, Otem is not like any tribute, and he starts attacking the Ringods back, committing the ultimate blasphemy of defying the authority.

Otem will be taken through all of the Rings in Aterra by the Shamanness, who has a particular, personal interest in him and The Ringods. Can Otem learn the terrible secret that she holds? Will he survive?

This is Otem’s Defiance.

Hey guys,

I work with Alfonso and he told me to drop you a line. This game looks amazing and I was hoping to find a dev version and perhaps stream it with your permission. I'm a competitive gamer and would love to help such a unique genre (bullet hell + platformer) get into the mainstream!

@roger.baldoma it's on the works, the first public version will be in english and we will add more languages as we localize it, we don´t want bad "google translations" specially since the storytelling plays a big part in the whole experience.

@Ed_Marin thank you, we were really keen on taking our time for the artwork, we're happy to see when anyone appreciates the craftmanship

@jipito33 the game might look quite simple in the main mechanic, but gets very complex and extremely challenging on the highest levels :D
