Long ago, in 2006, Orbox B was posted to NewGrounds. Year ago me and friend started to make a total remake of the game. So it could work on mobile and computer as well.

It's like a massive upgrade. A lot of mechanics now. Sci-fi story told through dialogues. Level editor. Coins. Hints.

I told him maybe lets make Orbox D? But he said that he is fan of Orbox B, so lets make a remake!

We will keep work with the game updates. Hopefully with some feedback from players we will be able to understand which things are worthy to add to the game?

The game on Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.Progamix.OrboxB

The game on PC, Linux: https://progamix.itch.io/orbox-b-rebirth

Mac and iOS will be published sometime later.

So there are some people who were so impressed that Shovel Knight can be viewed in 3D. But that's not a big deal with Unity engine. I recorded our 2D game in 3D view to show this.

Hey guys. I am not that much of an artist who draw humans. And even less I am into military stuff(not at all). So let me know if this makes sense as a space general character. This based on googling for anime generals in white uniforms. To draw the face and hairs I used references of anime and real human photos.

I also have no idea how the other character would adress to the general when they talk. The other character is not a soldier but she is like manager of a science project. And also an operator who interacts with the main character. Whould she say "Yes Sir" to the woman general or what?

There will be another general who is male. And some other characters.

The interaction happens in dialogues. So this shown in avatar frames.

Hey guys,

Recorded the bombs explosions in our upcoming game Orbox B: Rebirth. It has 2 types of bombs so far. Basic and chain reaction bombs.

You can play the older Orbox game here(but you need to turn off adblock, sorry that's because of sponsorship): https://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/607947

Orbox B: Rebirth will be a free game. It also has much more mechanics and other features than Orbox C in browser or on Steam.

Hi people,

That's pretty interesting. There is algorithm which searches for hidden gems on Steam. And it considered our game as one of the best hidden gems on Steam and put it on the top 100 list.

You can read here on PC Gamer:

http://www.pcgamer.com/this-algorithm-picks-out-steams-best-hidden-gems/

Our game is Orbox C pretty fun challenging puzzle in outer space.

I know this happened because algorithm not works too good. For example there are(I think fair) complains about too much visual novels on the list. But some games on the list are really great. Our game is pretty good too, people enjoying it.

P.S.

In case you want to play our game for free

1.You can play old flash version here on NewGrounds. It goes very difficult very fast.

http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/607947

2.Or you can try free PC demo version. Which is better option as it has improved GFX, better sound/music quality, fullscreen, and suitable difficulty for beginner.

I say that our game Orbox C has good music. Because I had compliments from other people about it.

And this is honest opinion by Scythe youtuber with 100000 subscribers. Which is the first time ever our game was mentioned by any bigger youtuber. He is not my friend and I did not paid him. So it's totally on his own. And I am very happy to hear this because I written that music :)

The game on Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/544180

Great free demo to try before buy: http://download.cnet.com/Orbox-C-Free/3000-2111_4-77473779.html

P.S.

Tho I written most of the music in the game but one the track in the game was written by other guy. I suck at ambient so it is written by other guy who did it better than I could:

Hey guys,

Here is some music track I am working on. I am not great with english so would be good to hear some ideas for a lyrics for this song.

Just some phrases that could be played time to time in the song. They would be with long echoes.

The song name also can be changed according to lyrics.

Hello guys! Hope you doing great!

After learning mixing for years I can see now how to make stuff kinda right. To make songs loud but not louder than necessary. To make mix sound clean and bright. To make it sound wide but keep it mono compatible.

I could help mixing your song for 25$ if you are not good with mixing.

This will help to deliver your song idea well packaged. It will sound better than 99% of the music you hear around from nonpro.

It is applicable to electronic music only. Not metal, not orchestral.

What you get:

Tuning your kick and snare to the song. They will sound in key with the song.

Adding snap and body to the kick if necessary.

Correct EQ. Resolving masking problems. Resolving harshness problems. Good lows and enough brightness.

Adding some more subtle movement to some tracks if necessary.

Good reverb ammount, maybe reverb type.

Placing instruments into the mix as a whole.

Mono compatibility. It is very important to make song mono compatible. You can find a lot of info about it. Most of top songs are mono compatible.

Correct sidechain. Your kick will not conflict with bass.

Compression where needed.

Some fast mastering with EQ, multiband comp, stereo expansion, saturation, maximazing the loudness to commecial level.

You will get two 24bit wav files. One without mastering, one with mastering - 0.3db ceiling. So you could make mastering yourself if you want.

Notice: I would not share FL file usually. That should be discussed.

Notice: This is applicable to not too complex songs(when there are too much tracks that need different approach). If the song is pretty complex I may ask discuss the price.

It is very very cheap for abilities I have now. But it is resonable for me as I have no portfolio with this.

Send me personal message on this.

Thanks!
