Weeklong Sale + Square Enix Collective Result!

Well, it was a crazy month, but 8-Bit Adventures 2's time on the Square Enix Collective finally drew to a close last week. 300 people voted for the game, and we had an amazing response on the website and on social media - ending up with a 90% YES rating!



Now as far as I'm concerned, that's absolutely incredible! Thank you so much to everyone who supported us over the past month, whether you voted, gave feedback, tweeted, or just checked out the page! Everything you guys did for the game was sincerely appreciated.

In fact, we even got our very first piece of 8-Bit Adventures 2 fan art, drawn by the wonderful @Zepht on Twitter, who did an incredible job!



I'm planning to run a fan creation competition at release with some really fun prizes for collectors. So if there any artists, musicians, or writers out there, get ready! We'll be accepting all kinds of entries, so even if you don't fall into the above categories, you still have a shot. But that's a discussion for another time!

Weeklong Sale Discounts

For this week only (until 10:00 AM on August 27th Pacific Time), you can get 8-Bit Adventures at 60% off! That means you can own it for just $4 USD! You can also get the fantastic Remastered Soundtrack 30% off ($3.50 USD), or the Game + Soundtrack bundle 45% off (that’s only $6.60 USD)!

http://store.steampowered.com/app/370300
Additionally, my most recent game Tales Across Time is also participating in the sale, making an already cheap game even cheaper! You can now get it 20% off - that's just $2.39 USD!!

http://store.steampowered.com/app/461710
These discounts won't get any lower in the future, so get 'em while they're hot! ;)

And remember, every purchase goes towards 8-Bit Adventures 2's development. As many of you know, I am funding development myself, so any and all support is greatly appreciated!

That's All Folks!

I plan to have some more announcements in the (relatively) near future, so please stay tuned! I always post 8-Bit Adventures 2 news here on Steam (including on the 8-Bit Adventures 2 Steam Page!), but I also highly recommend following @CriticalGamesAU on Twitter, as that’s the best way I’ve found to keep up-to-date on news!

You can also check out the 8-Bit Adventures 2 Website for more info and screenshots (including our new Dev Blog), or check Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/CriticalGamesDev

And don't forget the newest addition - the Critical Games Creator Page: https://store.steampowered.com/curator/33038547
Follow that page or wishlist the game to be notified when 8-Bit Adventures 2 is finally released!



So long! Farewell! Auf wiedersehen goodbye...

Summer Sale Reminder + 8-Bit Adventures 2 Coming to Square Enix Collective!

As promised in last month's update, I am very excited to announce that 8-Bit Adventures 2 has been selected for this month's Square Enix Collective showcase! It will be visible on their website for 28 days, beginning on July 16th.

https://collective.square-enix.com/projects/



For anyone that doesn't know about the Collective, it's a curated website (run and maintained by Square Enix) that helps small teams build awareness of their ideas. It's a wonderful opportunity for more exposure, as well as a chance to connect with an audience who loves the same types of games that we do (namely JRPGs). And depending on how positive the response is, there could be more opportunities beyond this as well!

If you want to help, then please check the Square Enix Collective website on or after July 16th (up until the 20th of August). There will be some new screenshots and information to check out, and you can take the opportunity to vote and provide feedback if you'd like. Your support would be sincerely appreciated!

Critical Games Creator Page



Also, despite some troubles, the new Critical Games Creator Page is fully operational! If you want updates on new games and a place to see my entire library of content and news updates, please check it out and click the green 'Follow' button up top!

“A Warrior who thought he had nothing left. A Woman who had everything to look forward to. Finally a woman on the run with almost nothing left to give…the provided experience excels at telling a tale of mystery and wonder with a brilliantly designed battle and encounter systems.”
8/10 – Chalgyr's Game Room

About This Game



Tales Across Time is a linear, story-driven RPG experience from the creator of 8-Bit Adventures: The Forgotten Journey. It uses the classic short-story format to tell the tale of three very different characters; each living centuries apart, but in the same location.



Each narrative presents a different experience. Explore a haunted, ancient ruin; help a young woman save her town and her love; face off with an unstoppable masked killer. Many tales have been told across time; will yours be able to transcend it?



Featuring:

  • Experience Three Gripping Tales, each set in a different time period.
  • Unique Turn-Based Battle System - built around resource management & one-on-one encounters.
  • Discover Engaging Characters and People with Personality.
  • Same Location, Different Environment - explore a familiar land, transformed by the passage of time.
  • Battle a Wide Variety of Monsters, which constantly change-up combat.
  • A Narrative-Focused Experience - keeps the story going and doesn’t waste your time (no grinding/filler).

    • OS: Windows (XP or higher)
