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!

Hey all, Ben here!

It’s an exciting time here at Trinket Studios. Our brains are in high gear and storms are brewing!

To that end, we’re very excited to finally share some sales numbers from our two 99 cent games with everyone!

Howdy all, Trinket Ben here!

Now that Trinket Studios has two games out and a visit to PAX East under our belts, I thought I’d publish a retrospective on our expenses. Yes, we know, it’s super late! After our visit to PAX we jumped straight in on an update to Color Sheep that took about two weeks — a lot less than we budgeted for, but it also left us with little energy or bandwidth to properly document our experiences up until and through PAX. We’re finally weening off of Color Sheep work and focusing on new ideas and closing old books. Hopefully this information will be valuable to others who may be pondering the cost of starting their own company. I know I wish I had found more information like this when we started!

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?

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:
