Hey everybody,

Episode 1's price has been permanently dropped down - it's now just $2.99USD (and there are equivalent price drops in other territories)!

The Hollow Wish pack (Ep1 and Ep2) has been dropped to $6.99USD as well, to ensure it's still value for money compared to buying the two separately (so that's about a 12% saving).

Episode 2's price remained unchanged at $4.99USD at this point in time (just to make sure that's clear).


Cheers!

Hi all!

Quite a few people have been asking about the availability of the Blade Kitten comics as well as the soundtrack, so we're happy to report that these are now available for purchase in the Steam store!

There are two DLC packs available:
Blade Kitten: Comic Pack - Dirty Angels
  • 133 pages of comic goodness
  • 111 pages of unused art and comic ideas in the bonus book (this is the art that is in the "Ultomato" compilation available at online comic stores)
  • PDF format
Blade Kitten: Soundtrack + Remixes
  • Soundtracks for Episode 1 and 2 consisting of 29 tracks
  • 12 remixes in celebration of the Episode 2 release
  • MP3 format, compatible with the Steam Music Player

There is also a Blade Kitten: Soundtrack and Other Comics package that combines both of these DLC available, at a discount.

We're compiling a list of issues that people have been reporting and are working through those, in the hope of getting some fixes out to you all in the next couple of weeks.

Cheers

The second episode of a mostly-forgotten episodic game being released over four years after it was nearly finished, and after its makers mostly closed, is the sort of weird game news that makes me trill “Ooh! Weird!” So: Blade Kitten [official site] Episode 2 came out yesterday. Ooh! Weird!

“Episode 2 was nearly completed 9 months ago then was put on indefinite hold because Atari didn’t want to publish it,” developers Krome Studios explained way back in July 2011. “We are looking at other avenues to release Episode 2.” It took them a while.

It's with great pleasure that we announce that Episode 2 is finally available for purchase!
You can find it on the Steam store at: http://store.steampowered.com/app/300120/

Alternatively, you can use the "Purchase Episode 2" option in-game on the main menu (which will open the Steam overlay and add the purchase) - just note that you will have to quit the game to allow the content to install.

Once it is installed, if you have finished the level "Dreadnaught", when you hit "Continue" on the main meny the story will just keep going...

(The Hollow Wish Package is also now available).

We hope you have a great time playing Episode 2. It's been a labor of love to get it out there to you - hopefully that shows in the game.

Cheers

The changes to content in this build are:

  • Fixes to allow the game to be played when in Offline mode.
  • Fix for out-of-world collision issue in Chasing Justice.
  • Remix'd Main Menu theme music is now in place.
  • Miscellaneous fixes for various UI screens (URL locations, copyright, etc)

Also... while you wait for tomorrow's Episode 2 release... the Hollow Wish comic is now available and can be read!
It will be in your Blade Kitten Steam install folder, as Blade Kitten Hollow Wish Edition.pdf

Cheers!

Hey all!

The news you've all been waiting for - so long as everything goes well with the last bits of submission...



Huzzah!
(This time is in Australian Eastern Standard Time)

For release, we are anticipating that:
[/list]
  • EP2 will be priced at $4.99USD
  • Hollow Wish Bundle (the original game + EP2) will be $7.99USD
  • There will be a 10% launch discount for the first week, in celebration of the long path to release of EP2. This should be for both EP2 and the Hollow Wish bundle (that is our intent!)

We've done our best to get this out for all you fans who've waited a loooong time for the story to conclude. Hopefully it'll make you all happy!

If anything changes, we'll keep you updated here

Cheers guys

Hi all,

Just keeping you all up to date on things.
We're close to finalizing the last of the known level design issues that we need to fix up for the game, and the game has been submitted to the various ratings boards for evaluation.

The only bug that I've talked about previously that is still a problem is the "can't play the game offline" issue - which we're still hoping to be able to look in to further before Ep2 launch.

We're in the end stretch now!

Cheers
Linds
