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

Rex Rocket backers!
We're excited to announce that August 5th is when your laser bouncing, Oozling blasting, robot smashing space adventure begins! That gives you one week to prepare for this awesome 2D action platformer that we've crafted to make sure both old-school 8-bit fans and platformer newcomers alike have a fun time every step of the way.

Trust us! Rex Rocket will hit the spot better than a juicy space burger after a long cryo-sleep if you're in the mood for a fun retro game with unique gameplay elements, quirky characters, and crazy boss fights.

Thank you all for your patience throughout development!
