Akupara Games published Star Vikings Forever with developer Rogue Snail, of Chroma Squad, Dungeonland, and Relic Hunters Zero fame. The game released on Steam for PC/Mac/Linux, as well as iOS and Android on July 6th 2017.
I led the publishing team with Akupara Games, and was very hands on with the project, focusing on the distribution and partner relations. We helped get Star Vikings Forever featured in the App Store, as well as a multitude of other sites like Humble Store and GoG.
The rift has opened. Strange creatures are beginning to pour into our world and are seeking to claim it as their own. Play as a Guild Mage and protect their most powerful Relic; the last grimoire that safeguards our realm from being torn asunder. Stand your ground in a new VR game experience that allows you to cast spells with a few simple motions of your hand, and learn more powerful spells as you progress. Fend off the invading corruptive forces and above all else, do not let the Relic fall into the wrong hands.
The player controls a full party of heroes such as a Warrior, Mage, and Cleric, but their spells and attacks are activated by chaining together notes like you would in rhythm games like Dance Dance Revolution and Guitar Hero. Each hero has their own lane of music, and the player can switch between lanes at any time to select the hero they want to attack with.
Our game will offer you near-limitless and every changing possibilities as you coauthor our evolving story. Enjoy the depth and elegant execution of a card driven game, with the thrill of exploration, research and battle.
The Weaponographist, a wonderful and magical game that I worked on with Puuba just came out on Steam today! Play as jerky jerk hero Doug McGrave and kill ridiculous baddies like a cyborg T-Rex, demon gangsters, and unicorns. If you like rouge-likes, weapon collecting, and fast paced action then check this out!
Casual Connect was an incredible success. Leif Dahl, Angel Wylie, and Scott Chalmers, and I attended to showcase Whispering Willows. On day 1, I spoke to attendees about the game’s development in a talk titled “Whispering Willows: Funded with Passion.”
Night Light Interactive‘s award-winning horror puzzle game Whispering Willows is now available for download on Steam for PC, Mac and Linux and it’s on sale for a limited time at 33% off. The game has been over a year in the making and represented a colossal effort for us. It’s got lush illustrations and animations produced with Unity3D. Tell your gamer pals to download it now!

I cannot believe the level of support we got for our Kickstarter project. In total we had 750 backers, and earned $20,747! In the last 3 days of the project, we earned almost $7,000! Not only was the game funded, but we even achieved our first stretch goal- translations in 3 other languages. Soon we will be setting up a PayPal on our website for anyone who wasn’t able to preorder.
If you haven’t yet, please vote for us on Steam Greenlight! We are about 1/3 of the way there! If we get greenlit, ALL backers $10 or more will receive a free Steam key for the game.
