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.
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!
