We’ve been greenlit!

Thanks to off-the-charts love levels, Cinders has been accepted for Steam release in under a month! Wow!

 

Cinders is a go!

 

Well, what can we say, guys… Thanks! Your support has been absolutely incredible and we’re still amazed by how fast it all went.

 

We’re unsure of how long the publishing process is going to take, as this is our first Steam release, but we’ll keep you updated. Hopefully, it won’t be too long.

Cinders is on Greenlight!

Guys! Guys! It finally happened. We’ve submitted Cinders to Steam Greenlight. Now everything is in your hands!

 

Cinders on Greenlight

 

Visual novels focused on women aren’t exactly Steam’s bread and butter, so pushing it through the gates will require some effort. But hey, it’s not fun if it’s easy, right? 

 

 

We need all the help we can get, so be sure to lend us your vote and spread the word among your friends who could be interested in supporting more diversity on Steam.

 

Together we can do it!

The new year brings our December Sale to the end. Thanks for participating!

 

Thanks!

 

Double thanks to all the wonderful people who decided to support us with the developer tip, even though this was an opportunity to get our games as cheap as possible. We seriously have the best audience ever. Much love!

 

Happy New Year, folks! Let’s make it a good one.

December sale on everything MoaCube!

December has come. And with it, the irresistible urge to make a big sale with huge discounts on all our titles. Because what’s better than a cool indie game to spend those cold winter nights with? (please, don’t answer…)

 

The promotion will last till the New Year. If you already own our games, remember there’s an option to purchase them as gifts for someone else.

Cinders is a mature retelling of Cinderella, ditching the passive protagonist and banal morals of the original story in sake of a more serious approach.

 

Our biggest game yet, so also the biggest discount. It makes sense.

Solstice is a mystery thriller about small personal disasters that can turn into great catastrophes. And a clear conscience that is as rare as pure snow.

Bonfire is a lightweight tactical RPG with strong roguelike influences where rules are simple but strategy is hard.

 

Be warned: we’re dead serious about the “challenge” part.

Magi is a challenging tactical game about wizard duels, mixing strategy and RPG elements with the dynamism and immediacy of fighting games.

 

“Dueling wizards” is also about the coolest thing to ever go on a discount.


 
 
Have fun and Happy Holidays! Let your happy winter spending fuel our happy winter spending. ;)

Pre-order Solstice for MacPre-order Solstice for Windows

 

By pre-ordering it now, you:

  • Gain access to the playable preview version right away
  • Get the game cheaper ($19.95 from $22.95)
  • Can affect the development by posting feedback on our forums
  • Will receive the final game two weeks before its official launch
  • Support a small indie studio and are an overall awesome person

 


 

 

Solstice is a fantasy mystery, set in an exotic city built in the middle of a frozen wasteland, with strong focus on characters and their motivations. You can learn more about it on its dedicated subpage.

 

The preview build is definitely the biggest thing benefit of pre-ordering. You get to play the game way before it’s officially out, we get to gather early feedback that can help us shape the final version. The preview is also pretty long, featuring around 20% of the full game’s content and clocking at 2 to 3 hours of playtime.

 

Have fun! And remember to hit our forums to let us know what you think.

Bonfire update 0.9.1 is out

A new version of Bonfire is available! You can re-download it from the same purchase email, you’ve got the original game from.

 

Boom!

 

The update is relative small but includes several important bug fixes and balance improvements, so it’s a recommended download. The full list of changes can be found on our forums.

 

Have fun and remember to leave your feedback.

We’re almost ready to launch Solstice pre-orders

Good news, people! We just finished enough content for Solstice to warrant a proper preview build. If things go well with bug fixing and final polish, we are ready to launch pre-orders in two weeks!

 

The investigation is about to start

 

The deal will be similar to how we handled Cinders pre-orders. You’ll be able to get the game cheaper, and receive it two weeks before its official release. Of course, the biggest benefit is the immediate access to the preview build.

 

You’ll be able to play the current development version of the game and offer your feedback while it’s still easy for us to make changes. This was a source of many crucial improvements in Cinders and we’re hoping for the same thing here.

 

The preview build will feature the first two chapters from the game and it looks like it’s going to be quite a bit longer than Cinders pre-order version. Solstice shapes up to be pretty huge in general.

 

So keep your eyes peeled and your wallets ready!

Bonfire Wiki

Autoquark, one of the players on our forums, has decided to be super-awesome and started a Bonfire Wiki.

 

Bonfire Wiki

 

It holds a lot of info on heroes, stats, bosses, quests, possible strategies… Well, everything! The game can be pretty deep, so check it out if you need a little help. Or better yet — feel free to expand it yourself.

 

I’ve added a few cool strategies myself, just to get things rolling.

The first huge Bonfire update arrives!

Bonfire 0.9.0.0 has just arrived through the means of magic and boy is it chock-full of cool new stuff!

 

If you already own the game, you can re-download the new version from your purchase email. If not, get it below.

The biggest new additions are the roguelike-inspired Endless Journey and two additional heroes to unlock, but there’s also a plenty of new content and gameplay tweaks. The full list of improvements can be found here and is over 80 items long! Check it out.

 

This update also introduces a much more leeway Lighthearted difficulty mode, so if you found the game to be too hard, give it a try.

 

In general, I consider this to be the best version to get into Bonfire. It’s pretty much a complete game at this point. There’s no leftover or locked content, it seems to be bug free, and all the major issues have been addressed. Of course, I still want to expand it through future releases, but it already works as a complete and polished package.

 

Have fun and be sure to leave your feedback on our forums.
