Release Date:  January 2013

Genre:  Sim, City Management

Platform:  PC (designed for Windows, initially)

ESRB Rating:  Unrated (not a full release)

 

Two members of FNG Studios, Paul and Nick, took part in the Global Game Jam of 2013, and with two additional developers, Sean Johnson and Drew Buchanan, and 48 hours, they crafted Earthpulse.

Please don’t consider this exactly a From Nothing Game Studios title as it was developed by two of us volunteering for it.  Rather, consider this a showing of our abilities, ever-growing strengths, variety of concepts, and our ability to incorporate important real-life concepts into games.

GravBlocks+

Release Date: February 26, 2015

Genre:  Puzzle (Match-Three)

Platform:  Nintendo Wii U™

Engine:   Unity

ESRB Rating:  E10+

 

In May 2013, From Nothing Game Studios became an authorized developer for Wii U.  For a few months, we continued to work on something else until we were able to begin work on something for the Wii U.  Ultimately, it was decided that our best course of action was to take GravBlocks and upgrade it for the Wii U to familiarize ourselves with the hardware and development.  Adding two new members to the team, and losing one, we dove into development with renewed vigor.

The complete upgrade includes twenty more achievements, now referred to as Accomplishments, and a brand new gameplay mode–the Story mode that explains what these alien visitors are doing to you!  Fifty new puzzles have been added, five new 3D backgrounds, overhauled Geometric backgrounds, and new block types have been added, and now all of them feature animating specialty blocks.

We aren’t ready to reveal this one just yet, but look for an official reveal to occur around the time of the release of GravBlocks+.  All we’ll say so far is that it is a strategy game, and that members of this team are fans of games like XCOM, Fire Emblem, Warhammer, and Advance Wars.

Look for updates and new information soon!
