We're thrilled to share the latest installment of our Prominence Developer Chat series, and this time it's all about the art!

Join concept artist & designer Gary Ritchie and Digital Media Workshop's Mike Morrison for details and a few laughs about the process of developing in-game designs and technologies, their connection to colonization plans for Mars, and the challenges of working collaboratively on art designs while living hundreds of miles apart.

Watch it in the embedded video below, or via this link if you'd rather watch it in your browser.

If you enjoy this video, you can also check out the previous episodes in the series, including the Audio Developer Chat and the Story Developer Chat.

Finally, we wanted to let you know that Prominence is at its lowest price ever during this Steam Winter Sale: 55% off -- just $8.99 USD. Hurry, though! This price is only available until the end of the sale.

Cheers and happy holidays!!

As a tiny development studio we can't be keen on market economics for all regions around the world.

Luckily, Valve advises us on pricing, and their latest analysis includes some recommendations for regions outside places where the US dollar and Euro are the primary currency.

We've decided to take Valve's advice and change the purchase price of Prominence, but only in cases where the new recommended price is lower. That means there will be no regional pricing increases, only decreases.

Price Reductions
In the next few weeks (we've already submitted the changes to Valve), pricing for Prominence on Steam will be adjusted downward for regions that use the following currencies:
  • Indonesian Rupiah
  • Philippine Peso
  • Singapore Dollar
  • Thai Baht
  • Korean Won
  • Indian Rupee
  • Chilean Peso
  • Peruvian Sol
  • Colombian Peso
  • South African Rand
  • Hong Kong Dollar
  • Taiwanese Dollar
  • Saudi Arabian Riyal
  • Emirati Dirham
If you're in one of those areas and Prominence is on your wishlist, keep an eye out for the new pricing.

New Currencies
In addition to those pricing reductions, several new regional currencies will soon become available here on Steam. We've submitted new prices for Prominence based on the latest market analysis for these areas:
  • Vietnamese Dong
  • Ukrainian Hryvnia
  • Australian Dollar
  • Polish Zloty
  • Argentine Peso
  • Israeli New Shekel
  • Kazakhstani Tenge
  • Kuwaiti Dinar
  • Qatari Rial
  • Costa Rican Colon
  • Uruguayan Peso

Happy adventuring!

Happy holidays everyone!

Today we're releasing character avatars from Prominence. If you enjoyed the character art from the game, you can now use them as avatars on your favorite adventure forums, in social media, on your Steam profile, or even as avatars in apps like Discord and Skype.

Each character is available in two versions: JPG with a red solar background, and transparent PNG with a gray border. Kinda makes the preview look like a big sci-fi candy cane.

You can preview and download any or all of them via this link.

Thank you for all of your suppport! We wish you all the best for 2017!

P.S. If Prominence is on your Wishlist but not in your Library, you can get it now at its lowest price ever. All purchases include the complete downloadable Soundtrack (16 songs), Guided Walkthrough PDF, and Voice-Actor Blooper/Outtakes Reel.

Prominence trading cards are on the way! Each card features high-resolution character art and iconic quotes from the game. Collect the full set and craft them into badges to obtain a variety of Prominence-themed backgrounds and emoticons.

More Goodies on the Way!

'Tis the season of giving, and we've scheduled some new Prominence goodies for release each week from now through Christmas. Check in with us here on Steam, Facebook, Twitter, or the official site each week to get the latest.

We just celebrated Thanksgiving here in the U.S., and we're sending out a big THANK YOU to everyone who supported the game over the past year.

Wishing you all the best for the upcoming holidays,

If you've been stumped by a particularly tricky puzzle, or would prefer to play Prominence as a more guided narrative experience, get ready for awesomeness because today we're releasing the official Prominence Guided Walkthrough!

Rather than just a bullet-point to-do list, we've put together a comprehensive 34-page guide to take you on the epic sci-fi adventure from beginning to end(ings), including solutions for all the puzzles plus cues along the way where you can find extra story content.

The letter-sized layout and PDF format make it a tablet-friendly companion. Or, go old school and print it out. We left plenty of margin space for notes! (And if you don't have either of those options, it will work just fine in your favorite PDF reader while ALT-TABing in and out of the game.)

Here on Steam, the walkthrough can be found in the Prominence game directory:

The Prominence Guided Walkthrough is the latest in our ongoing series of free Prominence extras for everyone who owns the game. We've also released the complete original soundtrack and the voice-actor outtakes reel. More goodies will continue to release in the coming weeks!
Community Announcements - DigitalMediaWorkshop
As part of our continuing series of extra goodies, we are releasing the Prominence voiceover outtake reel. Everyone who owns the game here on Steam will receive a copy, which provides some funny moments from the voiceover sessions. Once you have the latest Steam update for the game, look for the "prm_voiceover_outtakes.mp3" file in the Prominence directory under Steam.

Some players reported an issue where the soundtrack was not appearing in their directory after the first extras update. So, we've included the soundtrack as a zip file in the main Prominence Steam directory as well.

Also, if you've found yourself stumped during your adventure, help is on the way! Stay tuned for the upcoming release of the complete walkthrough, within the next two weeks.

Hi everyone!

Today, we are releasing a game update that should fix hotspot issues on integrated graphics chipsets.

You should still be able to use existing saved games without any issues.

This update has been successfully tested internally and by players who have had integrated graphics issues, but we'll still be checking in on the Community Hub discussions in case any major issues arise. You can also reach out to us directly by sending an email to

Thanks for your support, and happy adventuring!

Hi everyone!

We're excited to announce that the first in our series of extra Prominence goodies is releasing today. Everyone who owns the game here on Steam will receive a digital version of the Official Soundtrack for Prominence. Once the new update downloads to your system, check inside your Prominence game directory under Steam. You'll find a new "soundtrack" directory with 14 tracks of music from the game, plus 2 bonus tracks from our audio sessions.

To accompany the release of the soundtrack, we're also releasing our newest Developer Chat. Spend an extended coffee break with Mike and Tom and you'll hear all kinds of fun details about the soundtrack development, the origins of Old Letarri for the choir, the voice-actor casting/auditions, the foley sessions, and more.

We're also pleased to report that integrated chipsets will soon have even more compatibility with Prominence. Our prototype build with a new hotspot placement system has entered beta and is being tested.

If you've had trouble with seemingly broken hotspots in Prominence -- particularly on Windows 10 and Intel HD Graphics chipsets -- please feel free to contact us ( ) if you'd like to help with testing.

Thank you for supporting Prominence and for supporting indie adventure games. Stay tuned for more upcoming goodies as we venture through the holiday season!
