We Just Rolled Out An Update!
On Monday we released an update that adds in a brand new map, and a new game mode, along with several fixes and tweaks.
Those on Steam will have already experienced the madness of Steeple, a map that has jump pads, death, and moving platforms to keep pro Screencheaters on their toes. DRM-free versions of the game will be receiving the update in the next 7 days as we continue to balance it before the final upload to other portals.
We also introduce players to a brand new game mode, Elimination. It's essentially a last person standing mode, which can create some tense moments when playing with friends.
PAX Australia Video
A bunch of you guys came by the Indie Showcase section and the Xbox booth at PAX Australia to see Screencheat, so we captured some of your guys playing the game. Thanks to everyone who came out to play the game, we can't wait to see the rest of you at other conventions in 2015!
Just a quick note on the community hub - we are in the process of building a brand new centralised community hub which should be ready in early 2015. Until then, please share your thoughts with us on the Steam Community Hub
Leading up to December 25th we are going to be organising a bunch of community game nights for AU, US and UK time zones. This is a chance to meet with fellow Screencheaters online, including some of the Samurai Punk and Surprise Attack Games team to have some fun! Keep an eye on the Steam Community hub for the sticky thread with event times and other cool info.
Until next time, keep CHEESECAKING your friends!
