Happy holidays everyone! 

See you next year!

Well, here it is! We promised you a surprise, and it's a biggie. The first official trailer for Swords & Soldiers! It took a bit of work, but we really like the way it turned out. Everything you see in this trailer is ingame footage!

A bit scary really, finally showing it in motion. We hope you like it!

Some fresh bits for those cold nights

Hang tight! We're preparing a Christmas surprise! Well, it's a bit less of a surprise now. But anyway, something is coming! *ominous sound*

And to help you guys get through the wait, there is also something new RIGHT NOW!
We managed to squeeze out a little more faction info: the fearsome Poison Bomb and powerful Frost Hammer are up for display, so head out to the Factions section and check it out. We also whipped up this little gadget on the right, to let you know what this mysterious 'Frost Hammer' type character will sound like in the actual game.

I'd also like to take this opportunity to thank everybody who stopped by for testing the last few weekends. Thank you for every bit of constructive criticism to help us improve our game! Especially the last weekend was extremely hectic, but we got some great feedback and everyone was generally very positive. We enjoyed seeing you play the game, and we hope you'll be interested in testing again in the near future!

HME aftermath: Gamers, Groupies & Battleaxes!

The HME weekend is over and done with, and I think we can all look back on a successful couple of days.

We had a small stand in the corner of a bigger one, which itself was drowned in even more giantesque stands. Nonetheless, people found our little Gladiatorial Corner of Carnage™ and we were pleased to see that those people really enjoyed themselves.

We had two setups where several players could duke it out in multiplayer matches. Vikings versus Aztecs, we saw a lot of glorious battles. Most people stayed for a rematch or even a re-rematch! These were also the greatest skirmishes to watch as the game is quick to pick up and players learned to use skills and units fast and effectively.

It wasn't just fun and games for us though, as the matches progressed, we made note of some bugs and considered some tweaks here and there. This was the first public appearance of Swords & Soldiers after all and we wanted the game to do good. Luckily, at the end of the day, everyone enjoyed themselves and S&S didn't disappoint!

As a bonus, we put up the first spells for the Vikings and Aztecs on the Faction section, so be sure to check those out!

I leave you now with a world premiere: WiiWare Boothbabes!

Ok... so we borrowed them from another stand, but it still makes for a great shot!
