Patch notes for 1.1 update

Hey all! We hope you're enjoying the game so far!

We're preparing some fun updates for the game, but in the meantime we wanted to get some new things in, including some bug fixing, here's the list of what you can find in this update:

  • Fixed full screen resolution not being set to the native resolution of the monitor.
  • High Sea Survivors: New game over animations.
  • Potions Panic: New potion completed animations.

High Seas Survivor reveal and demo update!

Hey all!

It's been a while since we posted some news, but we've been very active behind the curtain and will have some exciting news in the following weeks/months!

First of all, as you can see in most of our screenshots and gif in the description of our game, we relevead one more of the games to be included in the release.

High Seas Survivor is a fast paced brawler game with a mix of tower defense elements. You play as a pirate protecting you hard earned treasure against several cursed beings coming out of the sea. In order to protect youself and all your chests you will have the chance to get all sorts of aid when you finish a round of enemies, so that's another layer of strategy on top of everything else!

Demo Update

Besides from that we udpated and fixed some things in the game that have made its way to the demo as well! Here's a breakdown of the new things you can find in it:

  • Fixes display of usernames in other languages in the leaderboards.
  • Fixes Ghost Hunter Hana map activating while in another menu.
  • Adds new button images when you're using your Dualsense controller.
  • Adds new effects to Potions Panic when completing a recipe to have an easier time keeping track of them.
  • Fixes bug in some enemy behaviors in Ghost Hunter Hana.
  • Adds support for more gamepads.
  • Adds new images on the minimap for Ghost Hunter Hana.
  • Fixes title screen videos not displaying properly on Steam Deck.
  • Adds new details and background to Ghost Hunter Hana's levels.
  • Fixes navigation with gamepad in some UI
  • Fixes camera behavior bugs in Ghost Hunter Hana
  • Adds redesign for Potions Panic title screen
  • Adds new instructions format for both Potions Panic and Ghost Hunter Hana with new art.

All of these and a lot of small improvements are in already and we'll keep updating the demo through the coming weeks!

Again thank you for all the support you have given our small team and we can't wait to share even more news about the game's release once we're able to!

December 2022 Update

Hey everyone,

We wanted you to know how the game is going and where we are at right now.

As many of you probably noticed, we changed the release date from 2022 to TBD. This happened for a few reasons:

- We're a small team, and to be able to keep making games we have to sometimes focus on some other projects from time to time. That causes delays and we're aiming now to release next year. If you wanna know more about our other projects you can always go to our site of sign up for our newsletter to keep track of what we're working on!

- We've had a good influx of players of the demo since we released it and had tons of great feedback. We're going through all of it and not only applying it to the 2 games you can play in the demo, but also taking it into consideration for the other 2 games that will also be included in the initial release.

But with that out of the way, the studio and the game itself had a great year! As you can see in our other posts, we even managed to make it to Japan to showcase the game a few months ago, so we're super happy with the reception we've had.

We're almost ready to announce the mysterious 4th game to be included in the collection(which includes the characters you can see in the post image) so we're very excited to show you what it is about and also we have some other pretty exciting news that will come on the first months of the year!

From everyone at the studio, we wish you all a happy new year and see you in 2023!

BitSummit X Roads and demo update!

Hey all!

We just had an amazing experience a week ago. We got chosen to be part of the BitSummit X Roads event in Kyoto, Japan.

We're a small team, and we're based in Guatemala for those who didn't knew, so having the chance to travel all the way to Japan, and tho show our game nonetheless, it was beyond our wildest dreams!

We got a ton of first hand feedback, and watching people playing our game always feels very rewarding.

So we're hard at work finishing the last game that would be included at launch, and we'll be showing more of that in the upcoming months.

And while we've been at it, we have fixed most of the issues on the demo that you all have been nice enough to report through the feedback form after playing it! So keep playing and let us know any comment or feedback you have for us.

Also, we've been discussing on having a more active Discord server where people can gather and talk about the game, is that something you would be interested to have? Let us know in the comments!

And remember to Wishlist the game if you haven't done it to know when the game comes out!
