It’s about time we posted about Trinket’s experience at PAX East! About a month ago Tom, Ben, and I made our very first leap into the game convention world.
Chris Cobb from Ragtag Studio had mentioned that he and his team were attending PAX along with the Men Who Wear Many Hats, Young Horses, and Sinister Design. Immediately, Trinket’s interest was piqued! How could we resist joining our friends and fellow Chicago indies on their adventure?
Hello! Eric here! In Chicago we’re experiencing some serious April showers, so what better time than now to cozy up to a toasty blog post. If you’ve also been caught in the rain, settle down next to our creative hearth and have a moment to dry off. Today I’ll be discussing the entire visual and narrative journey of Orion’s Forge.
Hello! We’ve got more great news since our last post. On Wednesday, April 10th, Color Sheep made it into the New York Times!
In addition to that amazingness, Orion’s Forge has been featured on the Google Play store since last Friday! Our little puzzle game has also been selected as a Staff Pick!
Thanks to everyone who has purchased and played either (or BOTH) of our games so far! Color Sheep is going to get a sweet update very soon that includes among other improvements, a new mode that will feature some cute critters to cheer our Knight of Light on as he battles in the fields beyond the forest. Here’s just a taste of the new environment when it was a work in progress:
…and… a CORGI! This pup gets his likeness from Chris Cobb’s amazing dog Cecil, who supports our fellow Chicago indie dev pals Ragtag Studio daily with his upbeat doggy ways.
Stay tuned for more on our wooly laser color game.
Hi folks! We’re still hard at work getting back up to speed after our awesome time at PAX East but we didn’t want to let the news slip by any further:
Since March 22nd, Color Sheep has been featured on Google Play!
We’re so proud of our little lamb Woolson as he makes his way in the world! Thanks to all of you who enjoy the game and keep sharing the love. Another update to Color Sheep is going to be developed in April and we hope it will bring you more laser firing excitement!
Since the release of the game it’s been a real encouragement to hear people say they like the art of the game. This is Eric writing today, the artist on the team. I hope this entry will be enjoyable and maybe insightful!
