LOTS of Design Documents

Howdy Backers!

I've just finished uploading 142 MBs of game documents to our redemption system. For those who purchased Design Docs, the keys are in your BackerKit. Make sure you don't stop the download half way through or else you'll have to start over.

Get ready to edumacate your brains!

Tablety Information!

Greetings backers,

This is just a quick update to say we're busily creating the tablet version of Akaneiro, and we can't wait to send you a copy!

Currently the tablet version of the game is in Alpha stage, which means we have all basic functionality working with our internal server. While we are still creating a specialized experience for touch screen, the team has just finished optimizing the maps. Attached is a short video of our concept artist Joey Zeng playing through the first mission.

There are still a lot of kinks to work out, but we plan to hit our first Beta milestone in October meaning the game can connect to the live server. Once we have this build ready, we'll regularly supply a download link for the install file for you to play.

I will name him George, and I will hug him and pet him and squeeze him...

Pets are here! 

Backer pets have arrived on the scene and your redemption codes are waiting for you in your BackerKit accounts. Once you've redeemed the code, go to Summoner Shimizu in town (the pet summoner) and you will find your new friend waiting for you.
