Update 1.1 is out!!
2015/03/31

Took longer then we thought but 1.1 update is finally out in the wilds!
...was actually out for a few days already /人 ⌒ ‿‿ ⌒'人\

Before we get to the changelog we wanted to forward you to the Touch Arcade review ★★★★☆ that showed up a while ago and reads like the reviewer was inside our heads!

- "the visual and aural experience is almost hypnotizing"

Back to what's important! Not everything made it in from what we've planned but we've managed to push in lots we didn't forsee. Here's what's new in v1.1

1. Virtual joystick - yes, alternative controls are available now! check out the pause menu. Also, we've added MFi controllers
support for the superb playing experience.
2. Difficulty balancing - we heard it's like Dark Souls on a mobile... well, it'll be much easier to beat some levels now!
3. Cutscenes skip option - you can skip some intro cutscenes in the levels when you repeat them;
4. Improved first gameplay experience - we've made some cuts, tweaks and polishing so it should be more fun to play Imps now;
5. Mute button - you can enjoy Imps with your own choice of music, check out the pause menu;
6. Other improvements and minor bug and copy fixes.

You can reach us for support or give word of support to us on our game's forum thread at Touch Arcade where we exchange ideas and collect feedback from you, find it here.

We are hoping to hear from you, if you have any ideas or would like to let us know about anything write to us at the forum linked above or directly to hello@wearevigilantes.com and be sure we'll get back to you as soon as possible!

All best,
Basia, Mario and Tom Vigilantes

Imps In Tokyo is an adventure/arcade game about a pack of mischievous Dreamcatchers striving to save our Dreams from nasty Nixies, and doing all this while chasing their mighty enemy, Mr. Cornelious. Forced to leave their shattered home, Impolis, Imps are trying to find out Mr. Cornelious's sneaky and demonic plan. Dive into the amusing story and lead the pack of Imps on their mission in Tokyo. Each imp has a different skill and personality, thus choose your Imps wisely. Ahhh kittens! You also save kittens!!! We should've started with this…

We believe mobile games don't have to be self-repetitive and casual. Imps In Tokyo is designed to deliver emotions and fun with its atmospheric and sublime graphics style and sentimental take on gameplay and story. Its difficulty level is high though, so prepare yourself for quite a challenge! Imps In Tokyo contains an intense story mode, which delivers a full and carefully crafted experience as well as SECRET ARCADE MINI-GAME! We are also working on a Trials mode packed with unique challenges, taking all the best from the story mode and topping it with some custom mechanics and experience. Trials mode will be available as a free update. What's not to like?!

  • Imps are made of...

  • Atmospheric combination of narrative gameplay and story
  • Challenging and diverse gameplay
  • Story mode + secret arcade mini-game
  • Extra arcade levels in Trials Mode (coming soon as a FREE update)
  • Multiple playable characters, each with different personality and powers
  • Beautiful art and music
  • Boss battle (of course)
  • One of the Imps farts
  • Easy one finger touch/swipe controls
  • no IAP or Ads whatsoever!
  • universal app for iPhone and iPad - pay once play anywhere

About Vigilantes

We Are Vigilantes. We believe that gaming is much more than just fun. Gaming without fun though… whoaaa man that sounds like a real bummer! We believe gaming can be an intelligent form of art and entertainment. But what we love most about games are emotions. Yeah, you heard right. We remember our first encounter with video games back in the 80’s. We can still feel the thrills and the shivers. And we want you to feel the same!

Mario and Basia started working on Imps at the beginning of 2013. After a few months of clumsy and desperate tries to complete a demo, we met Tomek. He joined our team as a cofounder and the shit just got real! We ditched our daily jobs with only one goal: to make a game we'd love to play! With the help of our talented friends, Rafał Sadowski and Luiza Kwiatkowska, we created our very first game: Imps In Tokyo. Cutting long story very very very short :)

We Are Vigilantes
and we are hungry to give you
that thrills and that shivers!
