Moby Nearing Completion!

It has been too many months since we first posted about giving more attention and love to Moby, a 2016 GBJAM entry. Due to significant factors outside of our control (as well as deciding to participate in two other game jams -- a decision well within our control), we have finally sent out some test copies. People who seemed to "get" what Moby was about and expressed interest in helping out were sent codes and have been giving us some great feedback so far!

While we wait to hear back from all of our testers, and then to make a final round of improvements, we wanted to give you a few screenshots to get you ready for Moby's release!

We implemented a palette swapping shader so that you can pick from several 4-color variations we dreamed up if you don't like our original GameBoy-based palette

While out exploring, Moby sometimes needs to stop and take a break. Keep an eye out for great skipping rocks!

Since Moby is still a kid after all, he has to go home to sleep sometime. Each day is another chance to explore!

 

We have plenty more to show, but also want to leave lots for you to find on your own adventures with Moby. We can't wait for you to explore!

Our GBJAM 2016 Getting Some Polish

We were happy to be a part of this years GBJAM, but we were a little unhappy with the final product. Most of the systems were in place by the deadline, we just weren't able to stitch them all together the way we imagined.

That's OK, though! Who says you can't add some finishing touches to a game jam game after the fact? We are currently trying to get things to the form we originally envisioned and hope to release an update in mid-November. 

You will finally get the outdoor exploratory experience in a Game Boy wrapper you've been craving! Keep watching our site and itch.io for updates!

If you want to play the game in its current iteration, give it a try! Just remember that we know it can and will be better.
