[upcoming] Joan Mad Run - bloody indie scroll shooter for pixel lovers
Hi, everyone!

We, Happymagenta team, are really excited to share with you the new game we are working on right now - Joan Mad Run!

What would you do if you woke up in a jail cell? You can't tell who you are, you have no idea how you got here...no memories, no stuff...no nothing. And the only thing you can be certain of is that you have to get out to find out the truth...even if that means destroying everything on your way. Would you find the courage to take the challenge and fight until your very last breath?

Meet Joan and see how far the desire to know the truth can lead you.

The game is still in its early stage of development and everyday we create something new to make it even more enjoyable for you.
We thought of many ways of showing Joan's current health condition and decided to use an avatar that shows how Joan feels and whether she uses some power up or ability. It also displays ammo levels and cool down times for both the primary and the secondary weapon shots.

Have a look at the animated picture below and trace Joan's condition, starting from absolutely healthy, then getting Bloodlust power up, getting damages and dying.



Seas of blood will be shed on your way to escape. So prepare for a massacre.

And for now we hope that you'll enjoy the screenshots of some of the locations and of course bosses:

This was only a small amount of what we want to share. New locations, new bosses, new guns and new challenge are waiting for you! So stay with us and we will surprise you.

Your opinion is crucial for us, so if you have any thoughts, ideas or wishes about the game (even the craziest ones), feel free to let them out! They are heartly welcome!
Please share your ideas about who Joan is or just anything you have to say in the comments below.

Hey everyone!

Here's some more info about Joan.

We are creating weapons right now. And today we'd like to share some part of what we already have.
However there's still much to do, so your thoughts and ideas are heartly welcome!

Every little detail is very important for us. And you will see that unlike in other games of the kind, each Joan's weapon will have a special effect on the enemy:

Knife. Kills simply and elegantly.





Shotgun. Kills several bosses at once and explodes them at close shot.





AK-47. And no more words are needed.





Laser. Kill everyone in your way with the laser ray.





Please share what you think in the comments below. We'd love to know even your craziest thoughts
