Latvian Game of the Year 2017 award, which was organized by Latvian Game Developers Association, was held on 10th of January and around 40 games competed for the nominations in 6 categories. We are really happy that Bearslayer got five nominations and got the Best Sound and Music award. We were also nominated for "Best Graphics", "Best Computer game", "Best gameplay" and "Game of the Year".
Bearslayer was 50% off during Steam Summer Sale which ended this week and it went really well, we got some attention and sold a lot more copies than before (not a lot actually). We were working hard on the Ouzel engine this week – fixed the texture downsampling which caused the backgrounds of the Bearslayer's levels to get rendered incorrectly.
Hey, after long silence we just launched our one button platformer arcade game Bearslayer on Steam Greenlight. We are proud to be Latvians, so our game is about Latvian epic tale hero Bear Slayer (Lāčplēsis). To complete the levels of the game you will have to be quick, precise and think fast. No matter how fast you are, you will die A LOT.
