The Cat's Pajamas


Hey everyone,

Time for a long overdue update, I believe! We've hit the ground running ahead of the money being cleared for landing - speaking of which, there have been very few hitches with Kickstater's payment collection; which is great news for the project. Many of you who experienced problems switched to PayPal instead, which is still going strong at £4500.

In addition to other work we've been doing, we're in the process of giving the character creation screen a fresh lick of paint.

It should look more like an application form now.

Time has been put aside for researching the decade, which is always rip-roaring stuff. Levels are forming, code is being written and optimised and the plot thickens. We can't wait to bring you more news as it develops.

We think these projects are the cat's pajamas:

We can't wait to try this one. Larian Studios have just released Divinity: Original Sin on steam, check out the trailer; it looks breathtaking.

Get it on steam now!

Here's one for you Metroidvania enthusiasts. Timespinner has that classical look about it, it doesn't feel like a new game; and we mean that in the most complimentary way possible. It looks like a game we could have grown up playing, on the PSX alongside Symphony of the Night.

They're about to make it happen, so let's help get them over the threshold.

Until we have some more news we'll sign off.

Best wishes,


Murphy, Zachary Burrows, and 23 more people like this update.

      Hey Lou and Joe. Love the character creation screen, but you should head more into the application form look and make those icons and number boxes look more like print, ink stamped, or hand drawn. Right now those icons look more like their floating above the paper background instead of part of it. Just some feedback!

      Great to see you pimping out Bodie Lee's Timespinner. When I first met him back in December (I think) at a Seattle indie meet up he was already excited about Witchmarsh and later said he was going to launch his KS shortly after yours finished up. I'm so glad Timespinner is doing so well already.

      I also backed Timespinner. I'm excited about that one. (and yours too of course!)
