PirateShip

Still have a lot of work to do with Pirate Ship (just literally started on it a few weeks ago), but the other biomes are coming together little by little. There'll see be more iteration passes down not only art-wise but level design as well.

Epic MegaGrants

We are very proud to announce that we received funding from the Epic MegaGrants initiative. This will help us make the game even better! We were denied the first time, but resubmitted a month or so later. And after a lot of back and forth, we finally received it, 1.5 years later.

We also have a Twitter tweet: NGJ MegaGrants Twitter Announcement making the announcement as well, it would be greatly appreciated if you could share with your communities!
