(Almost) All of the News and We Could Use Your Help!
We’ve had a huge month (plus a few weeks) since the last time we posted an update. Let me catch you up quickly:
- Last week we sent off review builds to press, so we’re now waiting with baited breath for news of who is reviewing the game and what they think of it.
- This is our last week of development before we send off our builds to the storefronts we’re launching on. It’s all polish at this stage, making Tahira as good as we can before we get it into your hands.
- We ran the backer beta from June through till mid-July and it was a big success. Having more eyes to help us test the game and giving all of the excellent feedback we received has made a massive impact on the game. A huge thank you to everyone who participated and especially to those who gave us large amounts of their time to help make the game better, you know who you are.
We’re really happy with how the game is playing and we are really looking forward to having you all play it. There’ll be more news, likely later in the week about how we’ll be managing distribution of the game keys and digital rewards.
We need your help
As you would all know very well, the game’s industry has become very competitive over the last few years. Releasing a game for an indie is like dropping a glass of water into a river and hoping that enough people notice how fresh and delicious your water is. Terrible metaphor? Perhaps…
The point is that we need all the help we can get for Tahira's launch. As the first people to believe in Tahira, there are a few things you can do to help us get the word out about the game:
Steam Reviews – Once you’ve had a chance to play Tahira, we would really appreciate you taking the time to post a review on our Steam page, or on any other stores we release the game on!

As we build up to release, Max is releasing a track from the official soundtrack each week. He’s posted two so far:

That’s all for now!
