Hey, guys.

Here’s a video, introducing the story in Vaporum. This is where your journey begins…

The art for this intro was created by Daniel Mihalik, an upcoming talented comic artist from Slovakia, the captivating voice-over was mused in by Sebastian Hernandez from the USA, and the music was orchestrated by Karel Antonín from the Czech Republic.

We’d love your feedback on the visuals, sound, voice, and the story itself!

Hi, guys.

Here’s a short gameplay video, showing Vaporum’s action combat. You can see a few enemies, skills, and weapons used, as well as the puzzling forging press, one of many big steam-powered machines at work that you will have to figure out to progress further into the mysterious complex.

We will be releasing more such videos in the coming weeks, showing other level parts and aspects of the game.

Stay tuned, share, and discuss!

Hello there.

Let me introduce the new environment tile set our lead 3D pixel-dragger has come up with lately. This is my personal favourite one so far – so industrial and cozy. Scripting these parts of our Vaporum world is already fun and feels good. Pushing crates around these halls, wrecking enemies, pulling levers, solving puzzles, wrecking more enemies and looking for secrets… yummy!

You can expect more in the coming weeks. Share the good word, good folks! :)

Thank you for your support!

Soon, we will share more of what we’ve been working on, what’s new and what’s planned. Stay tuned!

As promised, we are delivering to you a snack in the form of a video representing the current gameplay. The game is still in an early stage of development, so you can expect many changes in the final product. We are pretty confident that the changes will be for the better, though.
