    Hello, everyone!

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

    Imagine that you wake up in a jail cell... you don't know how you got here, you can't tell who you memories, no nothing. The only thing you know for sure is that to find out the truth you have to get out...even if the only way to do that is to destroy everything on your way.
    Your life is at stake. So will you just give up or take the challenge and fight until your very last breath?

    Meet Joan and see how far lust for 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 from absolutely healthy to then getting Bloodlust power up, receiving damages and finally dying.


    Prepare for seas of blood since your escape would be far from easy.
    And for now we just hope that you will enjoy the screenshots of some of the locations and of course bosses:

    Hey, everyone!

    Here's some more info about Joan!

    We are creating weapons right now. So we'd love to share some part of what we already have and know your opinion.

    Every little detail is important for us, so that's why we focused special attention on weapon effects.

    As you may see at the screenshots, every Joan's weapon kills bosses in a different way:

    Knife. Kills simply and elegantly.



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

    AK-47. And no more comments are needed.



    Freezegun. Freezes bosses and makes them fall apart like glass.



    Your opinion is extremely important! So please share all your thoughts and ideas in the comments below
