The Incubator Experience

By |2023-04-12T16:07:29+02:00April 12th, 2023|Uncategorized|Comments Off on The Incubator Experience

So, 2018 we were accepted into an incubator. STING - Stockholm Innovation and Growth. I thought I could share a bit of insight in what that has done for us, and what kind of magic that happens inside (this kind) of incubator. The Office First of all, the summer was a very busy time for all of us, so we delayed the start of the program until the fall. Come fall, we could hop into their offices in the middle of the city. This was a welcome change, since before that time, we had just been working from home, meeting [...]

Hammerting is released! It feels amazing. We have been at this for five years. Did I ever mention how scope management is the hardest part of game development..? There has been some delay due to the fact that we have built our own engine, but now we have it, and the next game will require less effort. It started out as a rather small game, but as the team grew, we wanted to incorporate their strengths into the design as well, and we have always felt it was the right choice in the end, the game is so much better [...]

The Hammerting Release and Early Access Journey

By |2023-04-12T16:01:25+02:00January 14th, 2021|Uncategorized|Comments Off on The Hammerting Release and Early Access Journey

Hammerting is out in Early Access since October (Steam and Epic etc) and this image above are some of the things we plan to  add during the period until the full release! Besides all features, we are constantly ironing out bugs, fixing crashes and adding small things to make the game more fun. But we do have a few bigger themes as you can see in the image above! Now, I'll tell you some more details on two of them. Expand Cave Life and Exploration This has been expanded upon a lot, but there is more we want to do, [...]

Devlog – Items and Crafting

By |2023-04-12T16:04:07+02:00February 12th, 2020|Uncategorized|Comments Off on Devlog – Items and Crafting

So, I have to admit that we've had a devlog over on Steam for quite some time. You can flip through there for some more neat screenshots and info. Today though, we are going to discuss: Items Items, items, items. Any game with extensive crafting really does revolve around them, and it is therefore of the essence that the underlying systems governing and presenting them to the player rest on solid foundations. Ours, we like to think, do. Items in Hammerting are defined primarily in two ways, through their "Modifiers", and through their "Classifications". Rather than being hard [...]

Hammerting Announced!

By |2023-04-12T16:05:33+02:00May 29th, 2019|Uncategorized|Comments Off on Hammerting Announced!

HAMMERTING ANNOUNCED! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hpC1MDmrS1E I am SO excited! This is the game we have been working on all this time. This game, and its engine. I know there is no gameplay in the trailer, but you can see a (terribly hastily done) gameplay trailer and some screenshots in Steam or Itch.io, take a look! If you like it, adding it to your wishlist would make us very happy. The homepage is here: https://hammerting.com/ Places to Reach Us We would love to have conversations with players during the development of this game. Both because that increases the chances of more people [...]

Joining the Sting Incubator

By |2023-04-12T16:08:25+02:00April 24th, 2018|Uncategorized|Comments Off on Joining the Sting Incubator

We have been talking with the friendly folks over at Sting for some time, and after talking with other game studios they are working with, we decided they would be a good fit for us. They liked us too, so we joined forces! The startup magazine Breakit wrote a short blurb on the joining companies here: article. What is Sting? Sting is an incubator in Stockholm, Sweden that helps start-ups in a lot of different industries. Now, what can they help us with? It's not going to be the making of the game, but there are a LOT of things surrounding [...]

Registering for Steam Direct – the Guide

By |2023-04-12T16:09:06+02:00November 24th, 2017|Uncategorized|Comments Off on Registering for Steam Direct – the Guide

Signing up for selling games via Steam is easier now than ever before. Before Greenlight, Steam had an internal vetting process. You could get (and did get) turned down if your game did not seem promising enough. With Greenlight, you had to appeal to the public instead. Now with Steam Direct you can just give Steam info, pay the fee, and you are in. I just did that, and I found a few bits of the process somewhat confusing at first, so I thought I should share that with you, and maybe you can have an easier time. This is going [...]

The Convention Manual

By |2023-04-12T16:11:44+02:00March 23rd, 2017|Uncategorized|Comments Off on The Convention Manual

As an indie game developer, going to a game convention is a great way to meet your prospective audience, test the game with actual players, note their reaction, meet the press and socialize with fellow devs. I've been to some conventions before and loved it, but never with the task of manning a booth, and never with my own studio. In preparation for that, I decided to write a guide. The guide turned out fairly comprehensive, so I decided to share it with you. Before Book everything you can, as early as you can. First off the tickets and or [...]
