Hello! It’s been too long, so here’s an overdue BCB update!
We’ve been pushing hard to get Battle Chef Brigade ready to shine in its very own Kickstarter campaign! Check out our progress here.
Good news everyone! Color Sheep is now available in the Windows Phone Store!
In Battle Chef Brigade news, things are progressing well! Sounds, music, art, and programming are coming together for what should be a really neat demo :)
To keep up to date with BCB, check out the development blog! The latest post has a sample of title screen music!
For those who are hoping to see us at PAX East again, we’ve got some sad news. We won’t be at PAX East this year.
The new plan is to show the first publicly playable version of Battle Chef Brigade at PAX Prime! We’re disappointed that we won’t be able to hang out with everyone at PAX East this year, but the extra time to polish the game will be well worth it!
It’s finally time to announce our next project and launch its website!
Battle Chef Brigade is a game about a cooking competition best summed up as “Fantasy Iron Chef”. Our goal is to create a game that affords the creativity displayed in cooking competitions (peanut butter fish!) while also introducing a humorous fantasy world with a cooking twist.
Begin each round in the ‘Pantry Arena’, an enclosed menagerie of tasty but deadly creatures. Monsters must be slain for use in the Kitchen, but they aren’t the only danger! In this competition, the opposing chef won’t sit idly by as you collect the best ingredients.
Next, bring your ingredients to the Kitchen and begin preparing your dishes. Supplement your pots, pans, and knives with magic while creating the perfect meal for the judges!
We’re hoping to release Battle Chef Brigade on Steam and consoles in 2014.
There’s a new feature over at Polygon today and it’s all about Trinket! Jeff Dunn interviewed us about Wideload/Disney, forming Trinket, and our new game!
We’ll be fully announcing Battle Chef Brigade soon, but for now, enjoy the article! It includes some great concepts, like the snippet below, that Eric did for some game ideas that didn’t make it.
Update: Color Sheep is no longer free on Amazon, but the game is still for sale everywhere!
The preliminary results of the sale are that we shipped 115,000 units on Amazon and our iOS sales went up slightly. We’re hoping that word of mouth keeps the bump alive!
For just today, Color Sheep is FREE on the Amazon App Store for your Android device!
Get this cute little guy to cheer for you if you’re brave enough to try Insane Mode!
We’ve been super focused on our next game and have neglected the blog! There’s lots going on over on our Facebook page, however!
Here are some highlights from the past month!
We got some cool fan art from Chris Pavia, developer of Dungeon Hearts:
And from the talented Christine Chong for Eric’s birthday:
Color Sheep is also now live on the Amazon App Store!
As a big thank-you to all our fans, we decided to give Color Sheep another update! Here’s what we’ve added:
Here’s the tremendous hand-animated trailer Eric made to show off Orion!
Orion’s Forge is filled with funny aliens, great illustrations, and fun puzzles. Enjoy the alien fables!
