Hey, guys! This week, we give updates on Pumpkin's game and talk about the games we played for #FeedbackFriday - Shepherd, Dark Dragonkin, and Saga Space.
Pumpkin trying to place a plant somewhere it's not supposed to go! Silly Pumpkin.
There will be a lot of placing things in our game, and their placement will matter. So to help our players out a bit, we designed a placement preview feature. Check it out!
#FeedbackFriday - Shepherd
We. Love. This. Art. Style. By love, we mean like if we had to rate this on a 10-point scale, we'd give it like a 20. That's how much we like it. Like, LOOK AT IT:
The abstract background...the shadowy yet responsive plants...the rare splashes of bright color...we can go on and on - these all convey a mixed atmosphere of nostalgia and...existentialism? Not quite sure that's the exact word we're looking for, but it's close. Reminds us of when we were daydreaming in class in middle school.
Shepherd is a game with a simple premise - you play as a shepherd finding your lost sheep and then guiding it around the puzzles in the game. While doing so, you do whimsical things like splash colors around onto the abstract canvas background and find "treasures", which are simply appreciating the small things in life, like a compliment or finding interestingly shaped clouds. Overall, the game is absolutely marvelous because it captures the simplicity of the life of a shepherd into game form. Very solid game. Check out the demo and the developer below!

#FeedbackFriday - Dark Dragonkin
Dark Dragonkin is a retro style puzzle game where you use the unique abilities of the characters, which you control, to obtain the treasures in the dungeons and make it out of there alive. In the process, the player also manipulates the characters to work together to defeat the dragons there.
This game is like an RPG game where you get to play the roles of warrior, thief, mage, and healer simultaneously. And it works out! Because the game is primarily a puzzle game, meaning timing and problem-solving are more of a factor than speed, you don't need four keyboards like you would if this were an action game ;-) Check out the developer and demo below!

#FeedbackFriday - Saga Space
We had a chance to play the free Android mobile game Saga Space. This game is a retro-style turn-based spaceship MMO for Android! It combines tactical elements with space exploration and ship management, along with MMORPG elements. You start captaining a starter vessel in a persistent universe inhabited by all the other places of the game. In the beginning you'll be mining some asteroids for resources, but quickly the customization options become obvious - you can trade, you can build bases on asteroids and planets, you can even fight/battle other players in the game.
This game really caters to those that love strategy and tactics. It seems to mix elements from other space games like Eve Online and Elite: Dangerous, and turn-based strategy games, but feels very unique and fresh. The game is still in very active development, and we can't wait to see where this game goes!

That's all for now. Have a great week!
