In this challenging 2D action platformer, the goal is to increase a sword's power by completing quests for the Smith, the Chemist and the Mage. There are many powers to explore, and some of them combine together to create new hidden abilities. You can only increase your weapon a set amount of times before putting it to the test, so choose your upgrades wisely!

Hello everyone, Brand is currently on sale at 80% off, so if you know anyone who could be interested in trying the game, now is the best time to share the news with them!

We'd like to bring the game to a larger audience, so we've submitted Brand on Steam Greenlight (http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=92946396) and could use an upvote!

There is no plan for a Linux version of Brand. We don't know how the game could have come up in Linux games, it doesn't appear there for us.

How hard would it be to port it to Linux?

Considering that the game was made using XNA, which is made primarily for Windows, and that we have no development experience in Linux, it would be hard. But the hardest part would be to find the resource to put more time in a port for Brand: the game was not financially successful, and thus we need to move on to a new project in order to survive as a company.

FYI, MonoGame is sort of XNA for Linux. Might be a thing to look into for your next project to open up other platforms.

We've moved to Unity for our next project and it's working wonders for us!

Rage Level 10/10.
i havent even been able to try the game, since i effectively cannot set up my gamepad button mapping, and playing it with the keyboard would be just downright awkward. thing is the stupid message saying "that button is already being used for whatever" popping up whenever i try to map a button prohibits me from setting it up in anyway.
just get rid of it altogether! and make it so that whenever you remake that button to another action to clear it from the previos action it was mapped to! ta-da!
also PLEASE FOR THE LOVE GOD add the option to clear the button mapped to a certain action, because i tried with backspace, or delete, and it didnt do the trick.
not only that, but i already had to restart my computer twice because the game would just ignore my inpute, and that hasnt happened since the 90s!

hopefully you can get to that, and i'll be able to try the game.

Can you send me an email mentionning your issue and the gamepad model you are using? We will look into this and try to find a solution.

Being a small team, we had tested the game with just a few different models but could not ensure a compatibility with every possible controller. We did not observe the issues you are describing with our own gamepads.

sure! i understand completely, what did bother me was not it being an error, but that i thought the lack of a clear mapped button function was by design. if there is please tell me how to do it. will message you my gamepad info.

Aha, reinstalling XNA Redistributable 4.0 did the trick! I'm off to try it now!

It's great that you could find a solution and I am relieved to know it wasn't a fault on our part. We hope that you'll like it!
