HexaNeph Games is looking for an animator

Progress is coming along nicely for the vertical slice of Alarial’s Blessing, but it’s time to bring in some more talent! We’re seeking an animator who can create video game sprite sheets for combat and world exploration. This includes idle, attack and movement animations. Here are a few examples of our game’s combat sprites and […]

Designing Interesting Enemies

It’s common in JRPGs for players to fight dozens of the same monsters and humans. This works fine for games where you will have hundreds of battles or where grinding is required. For Alarial’s Blessing, we’re going in the opposite direction. We want each fight to feel different and engaging. One big part of that […]

Business Strategy

We’ve been playing video games for a long time here at HexaNeph Games. It’s not an overstatement to say that games had a significant impact on our childhood and helped shape who we are. It’s no surprise then, that over time, we grew to become fans of specific companies that consistently made top quality games […]

The Golden Rule

The Golden Rule may not be perfect, but the general idea of it is spot on. As this company grows, we want to make sure to never forget the things we love and hate as gamers ourselves. It seems like so many studios out there lose focus of this and it’s always to their long-term […]
