Battle Princess Madelyn and the Normal Maps!

Hey Guys! We’re still here working on Maddi’s game – busy with our day jobs as usual but still squeezing in the time to get the game up and running in Unity and then some! Here is what we’ve been up to in the past little while: New levels/stages designed: On top of porting the […]

Battle Princess Madelyn gets New Stages, weapons and a Logo!

Well, it's been an eventful few months since we've announced the game and the support and interest has been absolutely outstanding! So first we'll thank you for all the love!! On a sad note, the real Fritzy has passed on to doggy heaven. He was roughly 18 years old and had a heck of a [...]

Battle Princess Madelyn is Console first *then maybe* Windows etc.

Battle Princess Madelyn is Console first!!! Well it seems people are speculating that Battle Princess Madelyn is going to be a Windows only game because Insanity's Blade was. We're programming the game in Unity to put it on consoles first! At no point was it said that the game was going to be Windows only. [...]

It’s Official! Battle Princess Madelyn is a Go! Happy Birthday Maddi <3 <3

Happy Birthday to my beautiful princess Madelyn who turned 5 today! You get your own video game! My daughter wanted to be in Ghouls 'n Ghosts and fight "Green Head", I said it was someone else's game but I could make her one that was like it. Then she said "But girls can't be knights, [...]

Extra enemies…

Hey Everyone! Well, the bug fixing is still coming along but we’re finally getting close to the tweaking stage! We have some exciting updates to share too! Since only one of us can be in the code at a time, I’ve been doing extra art assets for the game! In the past two nights I’ve […]

Insanity’s Blade is being pushed to TBA status

Hey everyone, Well we have the game completed aside of a few minor glitches. But we’ve had people testing the game and all have made suggestions to game play mechanics, sounds issues, and other little things. So we’ve talked it over and decided to put the game intoTBA status for the public. While the game plays […]

A big bad bug – The beta testing has paid off!

Hey Everyone! So Bug testing has paid off. There was a game breaking bug that we need to make sure we have completely ironed out before launch. So to play it safe we are going to push the date back to the 10th of June. This bug can actually stop progression through the game and it may have […]

Good news, bad news…

Hey everyone! Well it looks like that little setback with the development tool cost us our bug testing time. And we’re not comfortable with releasing the game with only a day or two of testing. So we’re going to hold the game back until the 27th of May. We are just putting the finishing touches on the […]

Official Trailer is out!

We’re excited to release the official trailer and countdown to the release of Insanity’s Blade!

Progress and Problems.

Hey all! It’s been awhile since we’ve posted an update. We’ve been hard at work on the game! But we’ve finally hit a wall with the program we use to code it. For the past two weeks the program has been crashing on us constantly. We’ve been saving every few minutes to avoid data loss […]

Insanity’s Blade Level Rebuilds!!

Completely rebuilt stages, tons of additional graphics, better enemy graphics… sound and the real sound track! With the addition of the second player, we’ve decided that the old Nintendo styled stages were no longer going to work. We’ve made them all more arcade or SNES like in order to accommodate both players on screen, no […]

16-bit/Arcade Game it is!

Aside of a few people here asking to keep the 8-bit as an option, 16-bit+ has gone over extremely well on all fronts! So we will continue along as Insanity’s Blade: The Arcade Experience! I’ve already made many more changes to art and we are currently rethinking the HUD. We’ve also added in a very […]

Insanity’s Blade the “Arcade” Experience?

You read that right! We’ve put about 18+ hours into updating the graphics in the demo (separate set of working files) over the weekend and updated all of the graphics to full color in the game. So technically it’s no longer the 8-bit experience if we go down this route. So before I pull the […]

Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays from all of us here at Causal Bit Games! It’s been a busy few days since the Kickstarter campaign successfully ended! We’ve been hard at work on some new bits!

New gameplay video – Stage 2 (zombie sledding!)

So we got stage two together enough to show you how it looks. This is the third rebuild of this stage. It started out as 15 minutes long then 10, now 5 minutes! But it’s harder and 100x more fun. And now I will introduce the first stage which features Corpse Surfing! While escaping the […]
