A Small Favor Kickstarter Now Live

4/15/13 - We’re making a new A Small Favor game, a 2D side-scrolling, sci-fi adventure game, and we’re turning to our fans for support to help make it happen. Here’s our Kickstarter link.

The alien assassin finds a crashed spaceship with a high level security badge that can help him get ahead in life, but not without facing the ever watchful security eyebots and officers who have come to investigate the crash.

Kickstarter is a way for us to raise money early so we can focus exclusively on this game without taking on side projects along the way. We raised some funds with Ballads of Reemus which was very helpful, but with Kickstarter we’ll raise enough to fund the whole development time needed. If we hit our funding goal, we promise we’ll deliver this game, just like we have on Ballads of Reemus and over 30 other games Jay and I have released separately and together over the years.

You can pre-order the game or make a pledge to support development of this game here:

A Small Favor is based on Zeebarf’s point-and-click adventure series, but this new one will have a brand new storyline building on the existing world, and will also allow free movement of the character so you can explore by climbing ladders, entering buildings, delving into tunnels, etc. allowing for more secret hunting, side quests and additional items than the original games. This one will have hours of content too.

We also have a mini-site setup for the game here:
And you can vote for the game on our Steam Greenlight Concepts page.

New Adventure Release & Planning Our Next Big Move

6/4/12 - Our newest fairy tale adventure game Wentworth is now live! An adorable space cat who spends just a little bit too much time napping scrambles to do his mission assigned to him weeks ago, and what should have been a simple task turns into a nightmare as he accidentally awakens a golem who threatens to take over the entire land of the fairies. Please play and share it with your friends. :)

Once we put out a couple more smaller projects and finish some contract work we hope to have the funds together to start on our next big commercial-sized game. We’ve hinted at what some of our game ideas are here on, on and on our Facebook page, and today we’re sharing some screenshots from these projects.

We love top-down games of exploration, action and adventure, and that is what we hope to deliver with this game. It’s going to be a gritty, interplanetary, laser shooting type game, with artificially intelligent aliens, sci-fi and other good, fun thingies.

This one is super funny, and some of the prototype’s features already have us ROFLing. You get to beat down beefy manly-men with big hair and tight pants. Still more AI for this one.

These projects (plus one additional game project not mentioned here) are described further on our upcoming games section, which is also linked from our Home menu at the top. We update this page periodically with how the projects are coming along.

Finally, we have been playing lots of iPhone games and looking heavily into developing for mobile for our next big game, though we will also be targeting other platforms at the same time including PC again as well as Mac, Android and others.

What is your favorite game for iOS? Share some of yours and if you ask nicely we just might tell you our favorites too.
