Linux version, performance fix and studio news!


Some news for your friends:

We're nearing the finish of our Kickstarter campaign. 72 h left to support us!

I've rewritten Balthazar's Dream to fix certain performance issues that were caused by texture editing.

We've finally uploaded Linux version (please check if it's working alright!)

Running Kickstarter and working on the Artificer demo took all our time, but don't you think we forgot Balthazar's Dream! I will have some time next week so I'll use it to work on a new level!

We've hired a new animator for Artificer, you can see his work above.

That's all, thank you for playing and supporting our studio!

All the best

About This Game

A kid named Dustin goes into a coma after being hit by an ice cream truck. His injuries are serious and there is virtually no hope of him waking up.
His dog sleeps by his side, dreaming of strange and mysterious lands filled with canine wonders. It is Balthazar - Dustin's best friend and there is no way in the world he will move even an inch away from his owner.
In his dream Balthazar senses a presence of two entities. Recognizing one as Dustin he uses his nose to follow him, while the other presence lurks menacingly in the darkness. Balthazar is sure that it is here to take the boy away.

With a loud bark Balthazar embarks on a quest to save his owner, venturing through the dreamscape with love and determination only a dog can possess.

  • 10 levels - 3 hours of gameplay on average

  • 3 dogfights with bosses
  • emotional soundtrack
  • in-game controller support (you need mouse for the launch menu)
