True believers, you have wandered in the wilderness long enough. The Ninja Pizza Girl pre-alpha Linux build is available! I’ve tested this on Ubuntu and it seems to work fine but my Linux-fu is still weak so if anyone finds bugs or incompatibilities with any particular Linux flavour could they please let me know?
Props to all the game-playing Linux users out there - it’s a great OS but managing graphics drivers is not for the faint of heart!
You can find the zipped build here.
This is a spoiler-free (no cutscenes) WIP build so if the game looks rough in places (it will) or doesn't make a lot of sense, don’t panic. We’ve bought gallons of industrial-strength polish and are busy liberally applying it to make all of NPG as silky smooth as the public demo.
Snirt (Snow + Dirt)
Nicole had a wonderful time at PAX East and didn’t freeze to death even a little bit, despite the minus 12 degree temperatures and the huge piles snirt that were everywhere! It was great to meet so many backers irl, and we can’t thank Topher and Rachel enough for their help minding the booth!
When Groupees asked us to help support Bring Back our Girls and to help raise the profile of female game developers, we found it impossible to say no. So for a limited time Ninja Pizza Girl is part of the Girls Girls Girls Groupee bundle.
One of the ten most intriguing WiiU indies for 2015!
We’re very excited and humbled to be included in this list of awesome games.
We’re super stoked to announce that Ninja Pizza Girl will be part of the Indie Megabooth line-up at PAX East. If you’re at PAX East, please come say hello! Or go see Nicole and some other fine folks talk about empathy in game narrative on Saturday, at 10 am EST, in the Dragonfly theatre. She probably won’t be too cold to talk (no promises though!) and she's only a teensy bit sad that she's missing Violet's birthday to be there...
Actually we could really really use your help! If you’re in Boston we’d be happy to trade you an exhibitor pass (you get to cut the queues like a rock star!) for a little help minding the booth! Please email email@example.com if that’s you or someone you know! First person to offer to fetch the occasional coffee/water and cover for toilet breaks gets the pass!
We've got boxes of T shirts and other goodies stashed in weird places all over our house, and Raven’s been working like a machine to get your sketches done. We’ll be sending them out this week, so look out for some NPG goodness in your mailbox soon!
*We realized that the art book contains spoilers, so we’ll be sending them out separately, later.
Supreme and Super Supreme backers, we really love working with you to get your avatars and artwork in the game, but we’re getting to the pointy end of the project, so if you haven’t already - please email one of us soon - firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com and we’ll get you sorted. We need everything in by the end of March at the latest so if we haven’t heard from you by the time Cole gets back from PAX East we will begin to harass, I mean, *politely remind* you.
As always, you guys are the best! You've made this game so much better than we could have on our own. We’re working our butts off, but the end is in sight and things are looking good. Much love!
