New Year Progress Report
Greetings from Laughing Manatee Games! It's a new year and high time we posted a Puzzle Depot update. There's been a lot of forward momentum over the last part of 2017, and while we're not yet ready to announce a date, we're looking at sometime in Q2 of 2018 as a potential release date.
With this update we just wanted to touch base and let everyone know that we're still working hard on Puzzle Depot. Thanks for bearing with us!
Here are some of the recent gameplay gifs posted to our Twitter account, showcasing some new mechanics and animations that you may not have seen yet:
Our friendly robot, R0L0, demonstrates what happens when flammable materials are improperly stored in a pool of molten metal. Controlled explosions can be used to clear all sorts of obstacles, though it is technically against Union safety regulations.
Here, Stella shows how NOT to avoid deadly swarms of stingflies. Unless you have some sort of protective full-body suit, you'd be advised to watch your step around these bloodsuckers
And finally we have... wait, is that a giant rat wearing a tiny backpack? Whatever it is, it looks hungry for roaches! Todd and Stella will have to accept help from some unlikely sources over the course of their journey.
We'll have another update for you before the end of the month with information about progress on custom characters and physical rewards. Feel free to reach to us here, over Twitter, or email (firstname.lastname@example.org), with any questions in the meantime!
