Games

When will the game be released?


We have release dates marked for each game. We will try to follow these dates the best we can.




It's past the date, why hasn't it been released yet?


We have due dates clearly marked for each of our games, but we can only try our best to follow them. There is only a couple of us working on these projects and the majority of us have a full time job outside of this. We do not work on our games full time and do not have the financial support to do so either, please bare with us if we struggle to make a date or miss it.




There's a bug/error in the game I'm playing!


We're sorry about that, please submit the issue to our bug report form. Please tell us which game it is and what the issue is and where we can find it. Please also check to see on the game's update log to see if your version of the game is updated and or if we may have happened to discontinued support for that game.

To find out what version/build your download of our game is go to the game's title screen and look under our company logo, located in one of the bottom corners, to find the version number.

No, thank you. All of our beta tests are closed betas and we have already picked out a team of testers for each game. Thank you for asking though.





Jobs

Can I apply as a music composer, programmer, etc?


Please, go right ahead. We have tons of projects in the wait to work on and some things we may need some extra hands of help with. Please use our business contact form for these types of inquiries.

If you have a question or would like to offer some kind of service for us, please send one e-mail from our business contact form and we will respond when we can. We will try to keep communication as professional as possible. Keep in mind, most of our projects are free as we do these in our spare time, so if you are looking for a job we may not be able to supply you with one. If you would like to be commissioned, we would pick the specific game we would like the content for. If we decline, it is not meant as an insult! If we decline, it is usually because we are able to do that service on our own, or we have already requested someone else. If we decline, please do not continue asking for further offers. Please respect our decision if we decline the offer.
