The Steam Lunar New Year Sale is now on and that means you can get Epic Battle Fantasy 5 for 30% off, as well as Epic Battle Fantasy 4 and Bullet Heaven 2 for 50% off until Feb 3 10AM Pacific.
Remember to check for the seasonal event in EBF5 to get extra fancy gear and the Firecrackers skill if you haven’t yet!
Hey guys, I’ve learned how to give out Play Store codes for the In-App Purchases in Epic Battle Fantasy 5.
It’s a bit clunkier than Steam keys, because there’s a limit on how many I can give out, and the codes expire in one year (if they are not used), but otherwise it’s quite similar to Steam’s system.
So if you’ve given money to my Patreon, or have had some fanart featured, or are a translator or Discord moderator, or have otherwise contributed a lot to the community, and want some codes for yourself or for friends, please let me know.
Using the codes seems to be different on the Play Store website and in the app.
In the Play Store app, you can go into your account settings, then “Offers and Notifications”, then “Redeem Promo Code”.
On the website it’s easier. There’s a “Redeem” button in the main menu on the side.
The In-App Purchases should hopefully be unlocked next time you start up EBF5 (maybe you’ll have to press the “Restore Purchases” button in the game).
Last week was a very exciting one with the launch of open testing of EBF5 on the Play Store. Google certainly put up a good fight in getting the game approved, and we love to see you enjoying the game while Matt works on smoothing out any bugs and issues.
Here’s some fanart to commemorate EBF5 finally passing Google’s requirements, from lance.
On most Android devices, if EBF5 runs out of GPU memory, graphics simply do not display.
But for one guy, they do stuff like this…

Anyway, I’m currently finalising the translations and working on fixing the last few bugs in the EBF5 Android version.
This process could take a while, but you can play the game now if you want.
Epic Battle Fantasy 5 is up for Early Access on the Google/Android Play Store!
Languages are temporarily disabled while we finish translations, but otherwise the game is 99.9% finished – there should only be a few obscure bugs left, and most languages should be finished in a week or two.
In-app purchases already work correctly. Even the Game Services achievements work!
Save files should persist as long as you don’t uninstall the app – make sure to always update over the existing version. (The current version is 1.15)
You can also transfer your PC save file by copying the contents of a backup .meow file into the password text box. (you’ll probably need to email the text to your other device)
With some luck the remaining stuff will be done in a few weeks, and I can start work on the iOS version.
Please tell your friends about the game!
