Team Colorblind is Ben Ruiz and Matthew Wegner, an American independent game development team based in Phoenix, Arizona. Formerly of Flashbang Studios, they worked alongside a group of 4 to 5 other developers where they created the seminal library of games: Off-Road Velociraptor Safari, Minotaur China Shop, Blush, Crane Wars, and more.

Set in 1428 AD at the formation of the Aztec Triple Alliance, Aztez will have the player will moving back and forth between a strategy game based on the military and political operations of the fabled Empire, while addressing “problems” with real time side-scrolling combat. Skilled players will last long enough to witness the arrival of the Spanish Conquistadors, and very skilled players will have the opportunity to defeat them and rewrite history.

A single game of Aztez won't take to long to play, but it is designed to be hugely replayable, as every game of exciting empire management is different from the last; different events will occur, different challenges will emerge, and different spoils will be taken every time you play. Inspired by the timeless surprise gameplay of Weird Worlds: Return To Infinite Space and the deeply and expressive action gameplay of Bayonetta, Aztez is like no other game you've ever played.

Aztez will be available for the PS4, PS Vita, Xbox One, WiiU, and PC (Windows/Max/Linux) platforms in 2014.

Key Features:

·         RANDOMIZED EMPIRE GAME – Every game of empire management will introduce new events, treasures, locations, and enemies!

·         5+ DISTINCT WEAPON SETS – Start the game with the spear, club, ritual knife, and the legendary obsidian sword of legend. Unlock more as the game progresses!

·         EXPANSIVE ENEMY CAST – Large variety of enemies based on the Aztec archetypes: the Eagle warriors, the Jaguar warriors, the Noble warriors, the combat Priests, and more!

  • CUSTOMIZABLE AVATAR – Beat the gear off of your enemies and wear it for a fully customized combat avatar!
·         COMBAT ENVIRONMENTS – 30+ combat environments based on real Aztec cities at the time of the Empire!
