General Update, Green Light Passed!


Hey all! Here's an update on where things are at right now!

Steam! -- Thanks to all your Green Light up-votes, Tiny Barbarian DX has passed the Green Light process and is on its way to Steam. Obviously, this is tremendous! Right now we're in the process of getting a Steam-integrated build up and running. Besides just running via Steam, we're also setting up some achievements and will be making use of a few other Steam features, so that's gonna be cool, but is taking a little time to add, and we'll need to have final approval from Steam as well. And of course, everyone who has already bought the game will get a Steam key at no extra cost. Here's hoping everything goes smoothly!

Mac Version! -- It's really close! We're wrapping up gamepad testing (thanks for your help, testers!) and that's gone pretty well. There's still a few little things to do with that but it'll be ready to go soon. I had hoped we'd be able to do Steam and Mac releases at the same time, but we'll have to see how that goes. (Either way it's coming soon!)

Episode 2 -- It's under development, but things are progressing along well. Nearly all the background art is complete, enemies are ready, and a lot of stages have been built. As usual I'm resisting putting a time frame on it but things are starting to come together more quickly now.

He looks ready for another adventure, doesn't he? Thanks again for your support!

      So happy to hear about the steam green light!

      I'm not sure how many times I've played through episode one but it's a lot and it's my go to game when I've had a long day and just want to relax and play a fun game.

      Thanks again for making this game and I can't wait for the next adventure.
