Year of the Hex

The consensus around the internet seems to be that 2016 was bit of a turd. But every turd has a silver lining, depending on your diet.

We were extremely nervous about the launch of our first PC game, but the results we’ve seen from Space Food Truck have been super encouraging. We owe a huge thank you to everyone who supported us this year by picking up a copy. You’re the reason that our sixth game is coming in 2017! It took a bit longer than we wanted to get SFT’s tablet port out the door, but we made good use of that down time learning Unreal Engine and Blender to make our next game in 3d.

What's Ahead?

If all goes according to plan, you’ll be playing Hex Gambit, the spiritual successor to Outwitters, by the end of 2017! This new turn-based strategy game takes everything we learned making Outwitters and improves on it. It’s fast-paced and easy to learn, with loads of depth and tons of tactics to try out. Also, it’s really pretty.

A Kickstarter is coming around the middle of the year with some cool pre-order-style goodies, and you can keep appraised of that situation by joining our mailing list. If you want to support the development of Hex Gambit right now, you can do that by buying any game or soundtrack we sell! All the money coming in from our other games goes straight into music, sound effects, and mortgage payments for the next one.

We wish you all the best of luck with your own hopes and dreams for 2017, and thanks for sticking with us for our SIXTH year as full-time game designers. We wouldn’t still be here making new games without your continued support. Happy New Year from One Man Left!

My curiosity is piqued to incalculable heights

I’m more excited than curious


#4

I love how this was put in the Poppycock section.


#5

Maybe it’s just because I have been playing a lot of it lately, but the map in the title card remind me of generals.io a lot. I’m interested to learn more.

Hex gambit hype!!


#7

@oneadamleft Will Hex Gambit be on Steam only? (I was hoping to be able to buy it with iTunes credit)


#8

But is “Hex Gambit” the evolution of “Outwitters: Skirmish”? Or is “Hex Gambit” another game and Skirmish is other game based on “Outwitters” universe?


#9

Hex Gambit is the evolution of Skirmish. Skirmish is a prototype game that will not be developed.

Ah, ok, thanks


#11

Will there be an android/iOS implementation too?


#12

Also, will there be a free version?
