2 years later?! - Time flies

Here we are, 2 years after releasing Halen into the world. 

So what's new on our end? Well, Last year, we released The Blobs Fight, our local-multiplayer party game. Last week, we returned from ConBravo where we were showing our latest update, Mob Blobs. This is an all-new game mode where players work together to fight off enemy robots (mob blobs). This update will be coming out on Steam in the next few weeks.

Still wish it was at least an 8 hour game with new game plus mechanics I really miss these types of games and you can't really play this for 100+ hours without  getting bored of it due to doing everything without any real change.


Hello, thanks for the comment. Don't worry, while this game will not be receiving any updates or expansions, we also wish to return to Halen's world in the future. Should you wish to keep up to date on any of our latest projects and news, I'd encourage you to join our Discord community and follow us on social media @skypyre

That's awesome if you need inspiration for it highly recommend playing through Jak & Daxter and Ratchet & Clank good games that have game-play that would mix well with this one.

Yes, agreed! Those are great games! Thanks :D


Two years later and still a great game! Nicely done team!

Thanks for playing! Glad you enjoyed the game!

the game is pretty neat. the animation, sound and the scenery could use some more polish. Game controls very well and there was a bit of humor in it. it's a  good start so keep at it 

Hi thanks! Glad you liked it! Thanks for the feedback

it was good

Hi! Thanks for posting the video :D

The graphics settings don't seem to be changing anything other than ambient occlusion. Everything looks (and runs) exactly the same whether quality and resolution are as high as possible or as low as possible. This is kind of a problem when I need to lower settings to get a game to run smoothly on my laptop. Is there a fix to this?

Hello darklord,

This game was made as a university project two years ago. As such, we were still learning about game development. Unfortunately one of the areas that did not get as much attention was graphical settings and optimization. The settings do affect some areas, however, they are not enough to really affect performance.

Rest assured, since then, we have learned a lot and have improved on this front.

We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

When is the next update for Halen?



Hi Len, I can tell you, you aren't the only one asking XD

For this specific game currently on Itch, we will not be updating the project. It is what we produced while at school and wish to keep it as is.

Something we have said in other replies however is that we have not forgotten Halen and her world. We look forward to revisiting it. Best bet is to follow us on Twitter and/or join our Discord to not miss updates.

Thank you so much for playing Halen!
