    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 don't know how you got here, you can't tell who you are...no memories, no stuff, no nothing. The only thing you are sure of is that you have to get out to find out the truth...even if that means destroying everything on your way. Would you have enough courage to take the challenge and find 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.

    Prepare for seas of blood, since your escape would be far from easy.
    And for now we hope you'll enjoy the screenshots of some locations and of course bosses.

    And here is the first boss - Jonny Boy zombie-mummy. How do you like it?

    And the brain tank, which would be really hard to defeat:

    I'd also love to share with you some cool missions, power-ups and utilities.

    Here is the Bloodlust power-up in action:

    And the Ultra Boost power-up which lets you fly fast through the level:

    A list with some missions and achievements:

    And the mission accomplished notice+ double kill combo and laser flare in action:

    Here you can see a list with some utilities:

    and a screen with 2 of them - Resurrection and Last Word. Choosing the former you get an extra life. And picking the latter you become the death ghost and fly a bit more further through the level, sucking blood and souls out of your enemies:

    And here is the first Joan poster:

    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!

    Today I'd love to share with you some weapons for Joan. What makes our game different is that each weapon kills enemies in a different way. You'll be able to see that in the screenshots. Hope you'll enjoy the as much as we do!

    Katana. Cuts enemies into small pieces:

    AK-47 upgraded with grenade launch:

    Laser. Cuts everything on the path of its ray:

    Extremely evil laser flare passes through all levels, slicing your enemies in 2 parts:

    Freezegun. Freezes enemies and makes them fall apart like broken glass:

    Freezegun Pump. Freezes not only enemies but the whole environment and of course traps:

    Lightning Cannon. Strikes enemies with a lightning, that chains them and turns them into ashes:

    When upgraded it creates a spectacular ball lightning:

    Which one would you choose to torture your enemies?
