Just checking in with a quick update. We are putting the finishing touches and polish on Soul Fjord now and hope to have it out and in your hands by the holiday season. We have been running internal playtests lately and making some adjustments based on the feedback we have been getting, everyone who has tried Soul Fjord has really enjoyed it so we can’t wait to get into the hands of the amazing OUYA community. We should have our newest dev diary up early next week and more frequent updates to follow as the game gets closer to launching.
First, we can’t thank OUYA enough for hosting us at OUYA Park at E3! It was a unique and enjoyable experience and we had a great time meeting all of the passionate OUYA fans over the three days that we spent there. The indie spirit was alive and well there, and it was great to meet the other developers working on great games for this amazing new game console.
We’re working hard on Soul Fjord and are incorporating a lot of the great player feedback we received at OUYA park. A mashup like ours that incorporates RPG elements, brawling, and rhythm elements is definitely challenging, but we’re really pleased with how the game’s coming together and 100% focused on making it even better.
We’re nearing our Alpha stage of development, which means that everything you’ll see in the final game needs to be created and implemented. The bosses—oh yes, there will be some big funkin’ bosses—are starting to take shape. We can’t say much about them yet, but here’s two words you might find intriguing: prehensile mustache.
The team is also hard at work finalizing the arsenal of funk-fueled weapons you’ll find along your journey through Yggdrasil or buy at the blacksmith’s shop. Here’s a little taste of our hero, Magnus, wielding one of our favorite axes in the game:
Check back soon for a new dev diary in which we’ll talk about combat, music, and how the two go hand-in-hand in Soul Fjord.
Some of the artists on Soul Fjord talk about the origins of the characters including the mighty Magnus Jones.
