October Wrap-up

Happy Halloween! We’re wrapping up another busy month as we unwrap Halloween candy and cram it into our faces. This month was filled with ups and downs, lots of work and lots of fun, too! Let’s start by checking out some of the developer updates from this month:

Our own Justin Woodward traveled to TwitchCon this month to spread the word about the upcoming video game version of the popular board game, Flash Point: Fire Rescue from RetroEpic! During the livestream, they played the original board game version as well as the Steam version (which you should totally add to your Steam wishlist so you can be notified the moment it releases!). You can enjoy the archive of the livestream here.

We hope you all have a happy and safe Halloween!

Introducing Obelus

In Obelus, an arcade combat side-scroller, you’ll play as Dave, an interplanetary insurance salesman who travels the galaxy fighting aggressive fauna with your trusty corporation-approved mech AI. Obelus questions the effects of AI and big data on humanity as our world becomes more reliant on technology.

As you explore the furthest reaches of space to find the last few uninsured members of humanity, you realize the AI seems to be a little too manipulative. It no longer seems like it’s there to help you on your journey…

As an accomplished musician, the developer plans to score the game as if it were a movie, without relying on repeating the same few tracks over and over throughout, giving each event matching accompaniment. Check out the campaign page to listen to a couple of the 80s synth inspired songs that will accompany Obelus. Check out the campaign page here!
