Hello fellow Dino Runners,

It's certainly been a very long time since we updated you on anything Dino Run related.  We are still planning on releasing Dino Run on Steam, and making some major improvements to it.  This WILL happen :)

But for now, we'd like to let everyone know what's been keeping us busy for a while.  We just launched our first iOS game, entitled Glorkian Warrior: The Trials of Glork.

Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qsvd3YIk8GA

App store link: http://itunes.apple.com/app/id816399139

It's a mix of classic shoot-em-up, simple platformer and Saturday morning cartoon. We made the game with James Kochalka, an awesome cartoonist and all-around great guy. 

We plan on porting it to Mac, PC & Android as well.

We hope you enjoy the game... thanks for reading.

-Miles @ Pixeljam

Post-Apocalyptic Update

Hello backers of Dino Run 2, 

We here at Pixeljam have been enjoying some much-needed relaxation and regrouping after the wall of doom engulfed our campaign. While we are sad that Dino Run 2 has been set aside, we are not the type of folks to just sit around mourning the loss of giant prehistoric lizards.  In fact, we are now focusing our efforts on multiple things that may be of interest to purveyors of pixels (and jams):

- Dino Run SE (The original one) is about to be updated with new hats, levels, multiplayer features, and other assorted goodies.  The update will be released on Steam, and will be available sometime in the second or third quarter of 2014.  We'll be posting updates about it in the Dino Run section of our blog.

- Glorkian Warrior, our collaboration with cartoonist James Kochalka, is almost done and will be released on iOS sometime in the first quarter of 2014. You can get more info about this game in the Glork section of our blog. You can also follow the Glorkian Academy on twitter.

- Our most recent game, Potatoman Seeks the Troof, was recently accepted onto Steam as well, so we will be re-releasing it there after the above 2 projects have been completed.

If you want to play Dino Run SE, Potatoman, or any of our other games right now, head on over to our Games Page to get more info on them individually or The Pixeljam Octology where you can get bundles of our entire library. All current owners of Dino Run SE and Potatoman will get Steam keys when they are available.

Finally, the very best way to keep up to date with us is through our mailing list.  If social networks are you thing, you can also check us out on Twitter and Facebook.

Thanks for reading,

-Miles & The Pixeljam Team

Doomsurfing is Dangerous

Hello!  Miles here from Pixeljam. 

As you may have noticed, we didn't reach our goal.  While it is quite a bummer, we can't deny that the last 30 days have been pretty amazing.   

We raised half of our goal... not bad at all! We got Dino Run in front of a whole new audience, and most importantly we connected (and reconnected) with almost 2000 fans and supporters.  Amazing!  Everyone over here is feeling the good vibes from comments, messages, tweets, etc.     

You guys may have some questions that I'd like to address: 

Q) Don't you guys still get 80K?  

A) No, Kickstarter is all or nothing. All pledges have returned to backers. 

Q) Do I still get my rewards? 

A) Unfortunately, since we get none of the funding, and you get your money back, we are not able to fulfill any rewards.  We are investigating options to make some of these rewards possible for purchase anyway, for those who are interested. 

Q) Will Dino Run 2 ever get made? 

A)  That depends on a few factors that are totally unknown right now.  What we do know is that our beloved dinos will be waiting for perfect moment to re-appear from their sanctuary... how long that will take, or if it will happen at all, is anyone's guess. 

So, what's next?  The most important thing now is that we don't lose contact with you. Please keep up with our activities through the following channels: 

MAILING LIST    |    TUMBLR    |   TWITTER   |   FACEBOOK    |    WEBSITE 

We still have a lot of games coming up, including a new version of DINO RUN SE for STEAM!  We're very excited about that one and will be posting info on it soon. 

Thanks for reading, and take care.

In case no one noticed, there are 30 hours left in the campaign. We're not giving up until the very end! Somewhere out there our cozy little sanctuary is there, waiting patiently for someone to nibble its mossy walls. Run, dinos, RUN!

There's been a nice renewed momentum today with pledges... time to wake up your non-backing friends and tell them to GET TO IT!

And here's a treat for those that need to be bribed: http://www.pixeljam.com/promo.php
