Vienna, Austria - January 24th 2017
Exactly 10 years ago Bplus became a licensed developer for Nintendo
and I am very happy and proud about that.

Thank you very much for all your support.

Bplus announces anti-war game Tank it! for Steam and Nintendo NX

Vienna, Austria – September 2, 2016
Independent game developer, Bplus, announces Tank it!
A new war simulation game with the message #WarKills .

Tank it! is a realistic and bloody war simulation game
designed to show how brutal and dangerous war really is… that it is no good...
that countless civilians are killed as collateral damage.
In Tank it! you command a drone to remotely control a heavy tank.
You receive the mission to travel to remote villages,
find and destroy the target military camps and eliminate all terrorists.
But as in real life, there are many civilians in the villages, as well.
The terrorists and civilians alike are at the player’s mercy.
It is up to the player alone to decide how to handle this mission.

Bernd Geiblinger:
"I for one do not enjoy playing brutal, bloody games,
so for me it is painful to create death animations and blood.
I did everything else before I did this kind of work - but I am doing it for the message.
This is also why Tank it! will be available for a very low value - For me it is much
more important to spread the message of the game than to earn a great deal of revenue."

Trailer coming soon.

Tank it! storms to Steam in Fall 2016, and Nintendo NX in 2017.

Teaser arts are artistically modified screenshots of the game.

but with an added challenge.
Then you can use them as levels in other Modes with different action gameplay –
it is a simple way to enjoy Pixel Art in different ways.

Puzzle Box

'Puzzle Box setup' for Nintendo 3DS was a nice little gameplay experiment to prove the concept.
The idea was born out of the level editor for the next Bit Boy!! game.

Now in Puzzle Box you create Pixel Arts or complete a pre-defined level setup
by dropping blocks into a bottle to complete it.
Then you can use them as levels in other Modes with different action gameplay.
It is a simple way to enjoy Pixel Art in different ways.

Puzzle Box is a relaxing puzzle coloring game for people who enjoy pixel arts and want to
create levels in a creative way. The main Modes CLASSIC/COPYCAT are like color-by-numbers
but with simple child friendly and very colorful pixel pictures.

- 100+ Levels
- More than 7 different Game Modes with different gameplay to enjoy Pixel Arts
- 2 levels of difficulty in all modes for relaxed or challenging gameplay
- Flexible Controls with Mouse+Wheel + Keyboard
- Create your own Pixel Arts

More information about Game Modes and how you can interact
with all the Pixel Arts will be revealed soon.

Thank you very much for your support.

Chris Strauss canceled the Nintendo 3DS Version of the Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs Game.

Sept 5th 2015
Chris Strauss canceled the Steam & NX Version of the Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs Game.

Dear Retro-Fans, As a huge fan of the old Contra Games (Europe: Super Probotector)
it was always my dream to create a game with that gameplay and feeling.
Now with Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs I got the chance to make
my dream come true with an awesome IP from the ‘80s.

Bplus is happy to develop Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs
for Nintendo 3DS and Steam with the following features:

- Contra-style run and gun shoot-'em-up gameplay
 - Real 80's IP and real 80's feeling
 - Retro-Style Graphics based on the original Anime and original Artworks
 - 12 differently themed missions full of oldschool action
 - 4 playable characters with different abilities and vehicles
 - Intense Mecha battles to fight the big bosses
 - Game Soundtrack based on Dale Schacker's Original Series Score made by Roland Koch
 - Voices from the Series featuring Peter Cullen and others
 - Mission briefings with original cutscenes from the Anime
 - Bonus Games and Highscore lists - In-game music box
 - Perfect playability with tight controls as you know it from Contra
 - Tons of stuff to collect and many of secrets to discover
 - Full New Nintendo 3DS support (+DualStick Control, +HeadTracking)

The main engine is already done and plays well.
To complete the game development Chris Strauss made a kickstarter website
with some neat rewards:
We really need your help and all your retro-love to make this game happen.

Satoru Iwata influenced my life in a great way.
His death is very, very sad.

To honor Satoru Iwata, I decided to put my games on sale from now
to the end of August 2015in America. I reduced their prices as much as possible
so I wouldn't make a profit from them. I actually wanted to give them away for free,
but contracts and other legal barriers prevented me from doing so.
Any remaining cents that come from these sales
will be donated to a cancer foundation.

Bit Boy!! ARCADE 1.20 USD (7.99)
PUZZLEBOX setup 0.50 USD (2.99)

Any cent from now goes to a cancer foundation.

In Europe a similar sale will start on July 30,
BBA & PUZZLEBOX setup for 0.99 EUR each
but any cent from NOW goes to a cancer foundation.
I won't keep any cent.

Everyone has his own way to honor Mr. Iwata by writing, drawing, filming or playing
and that is my way to honor this great man.

Rest in Peace Satoru Iwata
