We recently completed work on the PS4™ port for Dust: and Elysian Tail (Humble Hearts), and it debuted in the PlayStation™ Store as a part of the Instant Game Collection, free for PlayStation Plus subscribers. Dean Dodrill created a rich, charming world in this critically acclaimed indie rpg, and it was a blast to help it get to current consoles in full HD. Check it out now.
We were honored to help bring Matt Thorson’s excellent TowerFall Ascension (Matt Makes Games) to the PlayStation 4™. We’ve been using MonoGame extensively over the last few years, so working with Matt and Sony to port the game to PS4™ was a good fit. This one will go down in video game history as one of the best local multiplayers of all time. Pick it up on Playstation™ Network or Steam now!
We very happy to announce that ARMED! was Greenlit on Steam this week! Keep your eyes peeled for the Steam launch very soon.
Tom, Russell, and James presented a comprehensive postmortem for ARMED! at the local indie meetup, the Dallas Society of Play, covering everything from tech and game design to art creation and marketing. Everyone had a blast. We spoke honestly about what has worked and what hasn’t. We had a blast, and were able to meet a ton of great local indies. Thanks, Society of Play!

We launched ARMED! on the Windows 8 marketplace! The “preview” denotation is just a formality, though… if you are running Windows 8, you can download the FULL game for free right now (until the official launch of Windows 8)! This is the realization of our efforts to make ARMED! as much fun on desktops, laptops, and tablets as it already is on the phone.
So check it out! As always, we value your input. Find a bug? Please visit the official bug submission page. And for public discussion, please post to the official ARMED! Facebook page. And stay tuned for even more surprises. We’re just getting started.
