SHORT Delay

Alright everyone, good news and bad news…

Bad news: Yes, the game is delayed.
Good news: It’s only a very small delay. We could have the game released as soon as tomorrow. It will be released any day now.

We’re still dealing with some bugs and issues that just have to be resolved before we can release this thing. We also decided to include a much much more totally awesome final boss. Like I said, we’re almost there, but we won’t release a game that’s anything less than our best!

Apologies for making you wait! Expect news of the release

StormWinds: TLC and HI News

I would just like to take a moment to thank you all again for your patience and for being such good sports about the delay on StormWinds: The Lost Campaigns.  As promised, the game is only going to be better and cooler as a result of the extra time spent on it.  In fact, here is another screen shot from the game!

Jared would like me to let you know that later this week he intends to create a video with footage from the game, so that’s something to look foward to.

Also, just a couple of reminders:
1) About a week ago I told you that Bubble Tanks 2 was nominated in the Action or Arcade category in the Best of 2008 Awards held by JayIsGames.com.  We just wanted to remind you that, if you are so inclined, you can vote once per day – every single day!  So if you’re a fan of Bubble Tanks 2 we would, of course, appreciate your vote.

2) Our Puzzle Master contest is still running!  We’re cooperating with ArmorGames.com who are sponsoring some really amazing prizes for this contest including a PS3, an iPod Touch, and 3 iPod Nanos.  And all you have to do to win is make a puzzle that catches our fancy, submit it using the name “contest [your ArmorGames ID name]“, and rate others’ puzzles.  If you haven’t participated yet, it’s fun, easy, and a good way to get your hands some nice loot.  You can enter the contest here!

That’s all for now!  We’re really looking forward to the SW:TLC release and the continued work on Pirate Defense and Bubble Tanks Arenas.

Stay cool, play hard!

StormWinds: TLC Delay

Hey everybody!

StormWinds: The Lost Campaigns is really coming along.  The guys are getting VERY close to finishing it.  However, at the last minute they’ve decided to add a new feature and some other surprises to the game.  So the game won’t be released on January 20th like I previously said.

StormWinds: The Lost Campaigns will now be released on January 27th.

Just thought you should know so you weren’t waiting around on the 20th, looking for it.  We appreciate your patience…but I promise, it’ll be worth it!
