Thanks for your support + Steam Awards!

Hi guys,

Thanks all for making the release of Paradox such a big success! The movie and game combo was our biggest and most exciting Rusty Lake project so far and we couldn't be happier with all the positive reviews and comments here on Steam. We are very grateful to have such a great community!

A few weeks after the release we needed some time off, but still we were quite busy with events and fulfilling all the Paradox Kickstarter rewards. We are now fully back to work and planning a small update for Paradox very soon, mostly fixing some small bugs and adding new languages :)

We are also starting with a prototype for our next project but this will take quite some time. We hope to show you guys more near the end of the year, where we will also share our goals for 2019. In the meantime.. if we happen to be your favorite developer and/or made you favorite game this year, please leave nomination at the Steam Awards page and you will get a badge in return :)

Lovely art by @astaroth_6.
