New images from Battle Chef Brigade

Today we have some concept art to share from our latest game, Battle Chef Brigade!

Featured below is our lead character Mina! This is pretty much her final design. You may recognize some shared features as well as some clear differences from her debut in the first teaser image we posted a while back.

Additionally, there are some other key characters to the world: A dashing host and a panel of judges sure to have some interesting opinions.




Stay tuned for the launch of our official Battle Chef Brigade webpage (early next year). We are so excited to share this new adventure with you!

1K Facebook Fans!

Wow! It’s so awesome to have reached 1,000 followers on Facebook. Thank you to everyone who has supported us with comments, likes, and shares!

As a little gift here is a collage of all the fable illustrations found in our puzzle game, Orion’s Forge. It’s been a while since we launched that little game and we figure everyone who has purchased it has conquered the towers, but if you are still new to it don’t worry about spoilers, these images are best taken in with the words you’ll read through the game!

Hope you enjoy!

Latest celebrations!

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.dogGIFsml

Stay tuned for more on our wooly laser color game.
