Fantastic News

If you are following us on Twitter and/or Facebook you might have noticed that last month we entered Starwhal: Just the Tip into Fantastic Fest's Fantastic Arcade 2013. We're immensely excited to announce that we made it in, and better yet, we were picked to be a part of the 8 games chosen to be showcased in a custom made arcade cabinet!

New 'Games' Section

The long overdue 'Games' section to our webspace is finally up for everyone to enjoy. You can now see all the games the Breakfall team worked on since we banded together. Both larger games, like Marvin's Mittens, and smaller Game Jam type games are at your finger tips.

We cannot wait to make the list longer in the future.

Marvin's Mittens Featured in Another Bundle

We are happy to announce that Marvin's Mittens is now in the IndieBundle.org's Kids & Charity Bundle.

10% of the revenue generated from the purchasing of the Kids & Charity Bundle will be donated to the most voted kids charity.

If you have children or are a child at heart please check out this bundle.

Starwhal: Mini Update #2 - More Death

IndieCade is just around the corner and we are working steady to submit what we have. Because of this we less focused on features and more about peoducing a solid bug free build.

On the side we messed around with the noise map on the death animation to see different effects in action. It's definitely not final but here's a little preview of what we currently have:

Starwhal: Update #1

We're hoping to make this a more frequent thing since we've decided to stop releasing new features on the free web build of Starwhal and move into completing the game and then releasing it on various platforms.

First things first, we want to thank everyone that came out to the Wonder Geeks Activate 3 event last night. We got to show off our new build with a few new tweaks and features, met some crazy people, and overall had a great time. We hope to do more of these types of events.

Now quickly to the updates:

Webzone Facelift

No, you are not crazy! We did in fact have a bit of a "webzone facelift". It was more than 5 years ago that we quickly threw something up so that we could have a place to show off Marvin's Mittens and what was in development. Now with a few more games under our belt we found it was about time we polished things off. In the future we hope to deliver to you a seperate page to show off our library of games.

Hope you guys enjoy it.

Starwhal, Beyond the Game

Starwhal: Just the Tip has been getting an amazing amount of positive response, more than we had imagined when we first were playing around with grey capsules in the first couple hours of Global Game Jam 2013. Since then we've been getting a steady flow of players to the starwhal.com site, featured on Rock Paper Shotgun and FreeIndieGam.es, and made appearances to multiple gaming events. It's a bit late to highlight some of these events but I don't see the harm in it.

Starwhal: Just the Tip - Global Game Jam 2013

Another year another Game Jam and team Breakfall (with guest star Developer X) were beckoned to another 48hr crunch.

This year we were given the theme in the form of an audio clip. After a puzzling couple seconds we figured it out to be the sound of a heart beating and we were off.
