2 Year Anniversary - Thanks For the Fish!





Hello all. It's been two years since we launched Among Ripples on Steam already and what a fantastic journey that's been. While I'm writing this the game has almost been downloaded by a half a million users. Wow. As we've said prior this started out as a student project when our studio Eat Create Sleep was nothing more than a dream. We never anticipated that this game would have such a huge impact and originally we had no plans to release it on Steam, but, it proved to be worth it.

We want to thank you all for playing Among Ripples, giving us feedback, praise and constructive criticism. While we've been working on our current game project – Crest it's always been comforting to look back at an earlier success and draw strength from that.

And with this two year anniversary we want to tell you that our plan is to one day make a sequel, yes, Among Ripples 2. Please note that we're still in development of Crest and 2017 is meant to polish, iterate and finish that game and make it great. AR2 is nothing but a dream at this point, but from the praise the first game got we want to make the idea justice with a sequel.

If you want to follow us for any news regarding our upcoming projects you can sign up to our newsletter or follow our dev blog at our website.


Thanks for the fish,
Martin and the rest of Eat Create Sleep

About This Game

In Among Ripples you are presented to a soothing and meditative experience where you can experiment at your leisure. As the caretaker of a small pond you decide which creatures should be introduced into the ecosystem, and what species will thrive. Study the creatures you introduce and learn more about them in order to shape a pond that you find sustainable. This game is a short but sweet experience where you get the opportunity to relax and think about the balance in nature.


Features:
* Sandbox style gameplay where you are free to choose your own goals
* Intuitive communication of the game system
* Organic art style drawing inspiration from shadow puppet animations and watercolor paintings
* Serene soundtrack with ambience changing with the seasons
* Relaxed experience where you can take your time and see how things progress at your own pace


Among Ripples is a free product with no strings attached. It's a little experimental title we want to share freely with you all.
