Hello! Richard & Alice and The Charnel House Trilogy now have a recommended Steam controller config, created by me. And I think it works lovely.
Recently I got a Steam Controller, and I'm a big fan. What surprised me was just how wonderful the controller is for point and click adventure games. I never thought I'd opt to play a PnC on a controller, but I played the entirety of the upcoming Shardlight using it, as well as Charnel House, Richard & Alice and a bunch of stuff. It's especially great for me because I have a spinal disability, so using the mouse for long stretches of time is a bit of a pain.
The controller configuration includes two different trackpad speeds, a variety of button options for the mouse functions, and even rudimentary text entry for quickly naming savegames. And of course, if there's anything you want to tweak, Steam allows you to adjust my config. But if you fancy playing the games with the controller in the way I intend, then just check out the Recommended section in Big Picture mode and there you go!
To celebrate the controller update, I've put the games on sale starting from 10am PST, on 02/17/2016, for ten days. If you have a Steam controller and fancy trying our games with it, give it a go!
ALSO, we're proud to announce that we're partnering with Brainchild, developer of The Slaughter: Act 1, to help promote and publish the series. I first played The Slaughter just over a month ago, and I think it's incredible, and I really think fans of our games would love it. Go pick it up! It also has new Steam controller support using my config, so that's nice.
Hello all! Nina here. And Ivan, but he’s in the corner feeding pancakes to bears.
Merry Christmas, happy holidays and all that jazz. Hope you have a great time.
Few things we want to talk about as the year ends. Firstly, we’d like to thank all our fans and customers for the deluge of support in 2015, during which we released The Charnel House Trilogy. We couldn’t have done it without you, and we’re eternally grateful for your continued support and encouragement.
Secondly, as some of you are no doubt aware, our publisher Mastertronic has sadly gone into administration and are no longer able to publish our games. What this means is we now have the publishing rights to Richard & Alice and Charnel House Trilogy and will be acting as our own publishers for these games. We also have a couple of new games in the works which currently don’t have publishers lined up, something we may well keep the way it is. Thanks to some wonderful people at Valve, Humble and various other stores, our games are or will be still available. They’re currently in the Steam Christmas Sale right now, for example! With this new change to our distribution, we could use your support more than ever, and we’re exceptionally grateful to receive it. It’s gonna be a fun, scary, busy ride but bring it on! And while Owl Cave and Mastertronic have parted ways, we wish our former colleagues all the best, and thank them for a year of wonderful, fruitful times together. They gave us an opportunity that made a world of difference to us, and it’ll never be forgotten.
If you'd like to read more, and view our special Owl Cave Christmas card, then head on over here and take a look. :)
Merry Christmas! Have a good one!
Love, Nina <3
“Incredibly moving… A poignant, well-told tale, exploring themes of hope, despair and morality. And that’s not a thing you can say about enough games.”

“A quietly powerful tale about parenthood and survival in a frozen world.”
“A game like this lives on the quality of its script, and Denby and Raze have written a tender, human story.”
