2016 and a New Year

Hey Ska friends! It’s been a long time, once again. I’ll start off with – no, there still is no release date for Vita. It’s been an uphill battle getting Monogame working with Vita but Sickhead Games and we are getting closer. We expect to submit to certification soon with a hopeful March time frame. That’s not an absolute promise but is the goal. As always, as soon as we can give a solid release date, we’ll be shouting it from the rooftops. The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile and Charlie Murder for Steam are also coming along nicely! We hope to have those two ready very soon.

We’ll be at the Independent Games Summit portion of GDC week, delivering a postmortem on Salt and Sanctuary. We’ll post notes or a blog around the week of GDC, covering the talk. If you happen to be there, “Postmortem: ‘Salt and Sanctuary‘” is Tuesday, February 28th at 3:50 PM PST.

Link Roundup

  • If you follow our social media, you may have noticed we won a few awards in 2016! In December, we had the honor of flying to Tokyo, Japan to share the stage with some amazing games, accepting the PlayStation Awards’ Indies Special Award.
    You can watch the entire show here on YouTube.
  • Salt and Sanctuary was played on Awesome Games Done Quick by Grimelios! I watched the stream live and have to admit, I found the Spindlebeast attempts very amusing. Mwahahaha.
  • Salt and Sanctuary made Game Informer’s Top 50 games of 2016!
  • Geeks Under Grace Interview
  • We won a Fexy Award for Best Value
  • We made another top 50 games of 2016 at Cultured Vultures
  • If you know Greek or perhaps want to try out your browser’s auto-translate, here’s an interview at Gamepad.gr.
  • Perhaps the most surreal award, after the PlayStation Award, is this Zero Punctuation top 5 Goodest Game of the year accolade. Quite the strange honor!
  • It was an amazing year for us and this year should be a good one, too! Keep an eye out next week for a Valentine’s Day treat! (Not Vita related, sorry!) Stay Salty. <3

    Salt and Sanctuary at PSX 2016 in Anaheim!

    We’re going to be at PlayStation Experience once again this December 3rd and 4th! Salt and Sanctuary will be there on PS4 and for the first time ever, playable on PSVita. We hope to be able to say soon when Salt and Sanctuary will be available on your PlayStation Vita handheld device, though we won’t know just yet. In the meantime, check it out at PSX! Hope to see you there!

    Salt and Sanctuary on PlayStation®4 in Japan

    Last month, we announced Salt and Sanctuary is now localized for Japan on Steam. We’re working on getting the last pieces of the release puzzle together but with a little luck, on August 18th, Salt and Sanctuary will also be available on PlayStation®4 in Japan! To celebrate, some folks of the Bloodborne team will be playing the day before launch on the video sharing site, Niconico. It will be awesome!

    Also of note, as some of you may have seen, the Mac and Linux versions became available on Steam last month, thanks to the talented Ethan Lee, also known as flibitijibibo.

    And lastly for now, We will be at PAX Prime again this year! Come stop by and say hi at booth #2828. Behold the map!

    Fun fact: one of our cats is named Neko, Japanese for cat. However, we pronounce her name like niko, as in niconico[ニコニコ], a sound effect for smiling. Let’s give Neko a little spotlight for once!
