Come play FranknJohn at Eurogamer Expo before our big crowdfunding campaign launch on Gambitious.

Hello one and all,

We've been a bit quiet since Rezzed, doing lot's of businessing, back-end systems design and recently flexing our acting muscles for our Gambitious crowdfunding video.

So as I've mentioned before, FranknJohn is going to be seeking funding through Gambitious, a games-only crowdfunding site with a twist - not only can you pledge for traditional rewards, there will also be an option to invest and earn revenue on games sales. Backers will get full access to our development process and a bunch of other cool stuff. Exciting huh??

More on that over the coming weeks as we prepare for launch. Oh, one more thing I CAN share, is that we'll be offering early access to the game through a low buy-in perk. Even more excitement. Yep.

Finally, the team will be out in force at the Eurogamer Expo! 4 days of fun and frolics will be had in Earls Court, where there will be a crowd of 70k gamers. Nuts. We'll be running FranknJohn on two monitors next to the Devolver Digital and Mastertronic booths. Come find us! We might have some goodies. Or at least you can play the game.. and meet Basil. Or maybe even have a tea with Basil. He likes tea.

I leave you fine folk with slightly updated gameplay footage from the Furnace of Anger. Enjoy!
