Wanted to give you all a quick update as to what we’re working on and share a few cool things stemming from The Banner Saga!
First, Skyshine’s Bedlam is launching today! The Skyshine team are a great group of guys who licensed our engine to make their post-apocalyptic rogue-like combining the gameplay elements from FTL and The Banner Saga with a very Mad Max inspired setting. We’ve played it – and we think it’s pretty rad. Check it out via http://store.steampowered.com/app/367600/ .
The Banner Saga 2 is coming along nicely and we really think you will dig the changes we’ve made to combat and the continuation of the story. While we don’t have a solid release date yet, we’re aiming for the winterish time frame. The folks at PC Gamer recently had a nice preview via http://www.pcgamer.com/the-banner-saga-2-preview/
The Banner Saga on X1 and PS4. Development is still underway and coming along. Going to consoles was just a bigger engineering challenge than we initially thought however we’re making great progress. If you’ve ever played the PC version with a gamepad then you’ll have an idea of the gameplay you can expect once we do release on consoles, but it's been greatly improved.
The Banner Saga Warbands was announced recently. We teamed up with the Megacon Games team to create a very awesome looking coop miniatures game. They will be launching their own Kickstarter for this project soon. You can head to http://bannersagawarbands.com/ to sign up to learn more and get notified of when the Kickstarter launches.
As always – thank you all for your support and kind words along the way. Game development isn’t an easy road, but having you folks behind us really keeps us going.
