In a hurry? Well, okay then. Warp Frontier is currently being featured alongside many other cool local developers in the Melbourne International Games Week Steam festival!
Still here? Okay, let’s chat.
I’m usually pretty bad at timing. Jolly Rover released right at the same time the Monkey Island series was getting a big re-release, and Telltale were doing a set of sequels. I had planned Jolly Rover for years before that, but just when I got the opportunity to develop it and release it’s like all the genre-defining pirate adventures jumped on it and said “No!”. Or, “Nay! Ye scurvy dog!”
MacGuffin’s Curse was a bit better, no werewolf puzzle adventures on the horizon, no Teen Wolf revival. No magician-thief inspired games. I don’t know where I’m going with this. I suppose it was an okay time to release it.
Warp Frontier was pandemic, pandemic, pandemic. No opportunities to chat with people about it at GDC, or PAX, or anywhere really, so when I found out that it was being considered for a festival during Melbourne International Games Week, I could hardly believe it! Even better that it was happening right on the launch weekend! Please head on over to Steam to check out some of the best new Australian games on offer, plus demos, discounts, talks and streams!
