New ports for Rex Rocket!

2 likes

Greetings backers!

We now have playable Mac and Linux builds of Rex Rocket! They are available through Steam as well as Humble Bundle! We have to thank Ethan Lee http://www.flibitijibibo.com/ for doing the ports for us using FNA http://fna-xna.github.io/ an amazing cross-desktop-platform solution.

The iPad version is currently undergoing the last stages of testing and should be ready very soon. Last but not least, we've been hard at work on our second game, Blossom Tales!

In case you didn't hear the news, FDG Entertainment has decided to fund us so it's happening! You can check out a daily stream of Rob and Tyler working on this colorful adventure here: http://www.twitch.tv/r0bbietherobot

Thanks again backers!

Hello backers! 

We’ve got a few things to cover, but first….some amazing news!!! We’re excited to announce that FDG Entertainment has agreed to fund the development of Blossom Tales and a second game we’re planning called Holo City! It’s hard to put into words just how surreal this feels for us, especially after the failed Kickstarter campaign, but we’re incredibly excited that you’ll all still get to go on Lily’s vibrant adventure soon. : ) 

We could also use plenty of volunteers to beta test Rex Rocket for iPad and Mac. We only have room for 1,000 testers so please send us your e-mail if you’re interested! Note: only for iPad and Mac, not iPhone, iTouch, etc. 

Lastly, those who pledged enough to receive the signed hard copy of Rex Rocket can expect those in the mail soon as we've already shipped them!

Greetings backers!  

It's been a while since you've heard from us but we hope you've been enjoying Rex Rocket! We love that people are having a blast completing the game, collecting the optional secret upgrades, and even attempting speed runs. The Steam discussion forums is pretty active so check it out if you need help or just want to chat about the game. Also, those of you who pledged enough for the signed DVD Hard Copy of the game can expect them soon as we're putting them in the mail this week.  

Lastly, we're excited to announce that we will be launching another Kickstarter campaign to help fund our next game project, Blossom Tales! It will be another retro-inspired title but this time in the vein of classic ARPG's like A Link To The Past and Secret of Mana. You can check out the Kickstarter page here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1441844041/blossom-tales-the-sleeping-king 

This game can't happen without your support so please check out the KS page and help us out! : D
