We’ve gotten a lot of questions about what games we’re working on and when they’ll be released. I thought I’d give a quick run-down of some of the games that we have in progress.
We have two games that are fairly far along. Choice of the Vampire by Jason Hill is in beta testing currently. We hope that it will be ready to release soon–maybe by the end of June–but we’ll keep on working on any of our games until we’re satisfied with them.
“Choice of the Consort” is the tentative title for our game about romance and intrigue in a late medieval/early modern fantasy court, written by Heather Albano and Adam Strong-Morse. Depending on the choices the player makes, you can end up as the monarch’s consort, as the monarch’s unofficial lover, happily married to a noble, or executed in disgrace. It’s a different style of game from our previous games, with less action and more focus on personal relationships. We’re about to start beta testing for part I of the game. Depending on the feedback from our beta testers, we may finish part I and release it with part II as a later expansion or we may finish part II and release the two parts together. So we can’t predict a release date for “Consort” yet–it could be as soon as in a couple of weeks, or it could be a month or two off. We may also change the title before release–there are a lot of aspects of the game that are still in flux.
In addition to our games that are nearing completion, we have several more games that are in development but where the development process has been going more slowly for various reasons. By popular demand, both Choice of the Dragon 2 and Choice of the God are in development, as is Choice of the Wizard. None of those games are near beta testing, however, let alone release. For various reasons, those have fallen a little behind.
We also have some great games in the Hosted Games pipeline–we expect to release our second hosted game soon, and we know of several other games that are approaching that point as well. We’ll make announcements about those as they come out.
