1 comment

Hello Backers!

We're excited to announce that our team will be presenting at this Sunday's edition of Juegos Rancheros. If you're unfamiliar with Juegos Rancheros, it's an Austin based community of independent game developers & fans, founded in 2011 by Adam Saltsman, Brandon Boyer & Wiley Wiggins. In partnership with the Alamo Drafthouse & Fantastic Arcade, the Rancheros meet during the first Sunday of every month at The Highball to showcase & play the best in independent games both local & global.

We would love to see some of our backers in attendance at this coming month's event! Please share with your friends too- we're really eager to show all we're working on!

Information can be found at http://juegosrancheros.com/219/events/god-of-blades-edition/ , or RSVP at http://www.facebook.com/events/336793659729948/

Here's the official description of July's event:
White Whale ultra-succinctly describe the game as “a love-song to pulp fantasy tales of yore, 70s synth-prog-landscape oddities, and forgotten places”, and we’ll add more pointedly that it’s one of the most satisfying real-physics swordfighters you’ve played in ages — a 2D sidescroller that truly understands weight and rhythm. 

White Whale will be on hand at the Highball to explain in greater detail how to make a game which distills swordplay and action to its core also touch more deeply on aspects of “memory, culture, and loss in terms of stories, books, and the communities that love them.”

They’ll also be premiering a new mode of the game with a chance for you to win prizes like T-shirts and limited prints of the amazing custom pulp book covers they’ve created for the game -- all of which you can preview here: http://whitewhalegames.com/gallery.html

Everything will be kicking off Sunday, July 1st, promptly at 4PM at The Highball, 1142 S Lamar Blvd, Austin, TX 78704! Come early to get a head-start on learning the game’s rhythms, enjoy the Highball’s Happy Hour drink specials, and say hello to the people changing the way you think about games!
