Holiday Update

Okay, all kinds of good news.

If you haven't heard, Unity fixed the framerate problems I was having and there's a new build up on the Humble store with all kinds of good stuff. If you're a Beta backer or higher, you should be able to go here and get a pretty great game. I still wouldn't call it "Beta", it's not feature or content complete yet, but it's yours to play with. Also, I've heard some complaints about the jetpack cooldown and some exploits in the trick-attack modes and those are high on my list to fix, but already it's a really fun game with good feel and lots to explore, if I do say so myself.

And other good news is I've officially signed with Sony to bring the game to the Playstation 4 and Vita. It's a Christmas miracle, and I couldn't have done it without you! I know, because I pitched the game to Sony's Pub Fund before the Kickstarter and they turned me down. Your support both helped show them that people really do want to play this game and helped me improve the game to the point where they were excited to get it on their systems. 

Thanks to the spark you've all given me, I actually made just enough to pay the bills this year, and Happion Labs seems to be on its way to becoming a viable business!

Happy holidays - and I think I'm going to celebrate now with some cheap wine and Desktop Dungeons. :)

      Congratz with the PS4/ Vita deal.
      I just got a Vita and this should be an amazing game on that system.

      Worry about shipping AFTER the holidays. Alot of people might not be around if you ship too soon, and you'll end up with alot of packages being sent back to you.
      Anyways, looks great! Can't wait to get my order!
