Howdy Y'all, 

Been awhile since I've specifically posted an IndieDB update. Thank you all for constantly checking out High Moon over the months and keep it in the top 1000 (often top 300, woot!).  

I first began the card version of High Moon to work out game design and produce something of monetary value while I do so. At this point in time, the game design is finished and much of the art. A kickstarter will be starting in July to fund the card version AND...partially fund a restart of the app development.

I'll talk more about that later in today's article. First...some pictures. (click on the images to see larger ones, or head to the image gallery for High Moon).

It's looking pretty good, right??

At this point in time, I'm actively seeking to either hire a programmer, or put together a new development team to restart the mobile app. Unfortunately, it won't be the animated pixel game you all came to love. I just don't have the time or resources to continue with that.

This version will literally be putting the card game into app form with multiplayer functionality. It may not be visually what you want, but gameplay wise it's awesome! And fun always comes before visuals, right? 

If you know of anyone who could help me build the app, either with me paying them or splitting a royalty on sales, please send them my way!

More information on what specifically I am looking for can be found here: Indiedb.com

Send me an email @ isaacblackstudio@gmail.com if you are interested!

New music is fantastic feel to it. Reminds me of Treyarchs Buried map sound on bops2 Zombies. Would love to be involved in the beta testing :)

Loving this! What a fantastic concept, an extreme modern throw on games similar to the Attari's 70's game Outlaw! More crazy pixel dances please. Can't wait for release

That would be the vibe I was going for! Loosely based on Clint Eastwood from the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.

found a rare situation in High Moon that basically breaks the game. Now I gotta figure out how to fix that. Glad I found it though! #gamedev
