Plants of Death

Botany must be a risky science in the world of Casuma (the world in which Seafoam Empress is set — yes, it has a name now and everything).

I imagine a plant that spits out fireballs would be slightly hotter than a jalapeño. Mmm, tasty.

Here we’re featuring a couple plant enemies: one is a bulb that tracks your movement and shoots fireballs, and the other is a lily pad that snaps at you if you remain on it for too long.

And not even something as ostensibly innocent as a lily pad can be trusted!

Oh snap.

Happy Halloween!

And an enemy reveal! This monstrous creature releases an army of tentacled minions that spit toxic bile at our poor beleaguered heroine. (Can’t Athena get a break? Nope.)

The team here at SkyTy wishes you a Happy Halloween! May your weekend be filled with sheer horror.

It’s the stuff that nightmares are made of. If you were a mermaid, I guess.

The Dumbo Octopus!

Athena doesn’t have only her noble froggy steed to keep her company — when times get tough, she has a veritable menagerie of creatures on which to rely! Here we have a friendly dumbo octopus that appears to lend a helping hand (or tentacle) by occasionally lunging at enemies in your path.

Isn’t it so cuuuuuute?

Oh god!!! Maybe not!

More gameplay sneak-peeking!

Hope everyone’s having a good week! We’re gearing up to present a 30-second gameplay video at the end of the month, and while we do so I thought it’d be fun to share some snippets of how the game is going to actually look. Whoa. Good thing I’m sitting down for this.

Seeing things come together like this can be quite cathartic. Also, are the pirate golems running on water? How messianic!

Pirate Golem Enemy

Today we’re featuring one of the more peculiar enemies in Seafoam Empress (although, to be fair, they’re all pretty damn weird). This little guy’s design developed as a cross between a pirate, a knight, and a wooden golem. And to make him extra cool his claws can rotate like propellers. So I guess I threw Inspector Gadget into the mix as well.

Go go gadget arms!

Friends and Foes

I compiled a GIF showing off the rather large ensemble of characters in Seafoam Empress. As you can see it’s a rather diverse (and bizarre) selection.

A veritable phantasmagoria of curious creatures, most of whom are hellbent on killing our grossly outnumbered heroine.

Sneak Peek of a Pirate Crab Boss Fight!

Here’s a brief snippet of Athena’s showdown with a giant pirate crab. The fight will take place on different stages — one of which is underwater (as shown here) but the other will have the water drained out so Athena will fight while mounted on her noble froggy steed. All in all it promises for an epic boss fight, which we at Sky Tyrannosaur particularly love to make!

Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrr…….I pinch.

Also it shoots laser beams out of its mouth. Because reasons.
