Live Streaming Development & Trailer Coming Soon

I understand that this project has been frustrating, as there have been many twists and turns throughout the last 4 years. However, it is my great pleasure to inform you that Super Retro Squad is getting close to a Steam Early Access release. My personal circumstances changed back in July, and I was able to quit my other projects and resume development. I am now working with just one other person who was not part of the team before, and we've been working hard since then. I did not post here because I didn't see the point in posting without showing evidence.

I was going to wait until I had a trailer ready, but I decided to tell you early because I started doing some live streams of development, and I thought you should know, in case you want to follow along. I will probably not live stream much more development until after the trailer is released, just so that I can save time, but we'll see.

 In addition to that, I've also started a video series answering questions. You can ask a question for the series by tweeting @ExplodingRabbit with hashtag: #ExplodingQuestions

 Lastly, the final name for the game is Super Retro Crossover. We changed the word "Squad" to "Crossover" because the squad is not as big of a focus as was originally planned, and we are focusing more generally on the crossover part.

As soon as our trailer is ready, we will launch it along with a Steam Greenlight Campaign so that we can prepare for early access. We are hoping for 1st quarter 2017 early access release, and the trailer should be ready before the end of the year. I've already begun recording footage for the trailer. I'm just waiting for art & sound before I can record the rest, and then I'll just have to cut it together. It's an ambitious trailer that should get people hyped for the game.

Thank you for joining me on this journey. The end is within sight, but it will really just be another beginning, as there will be much to do after we get on early access.
