It's definitely a feature we want to see at some point, though you would likely only get a partner during tougher boss fights. If we ever have a chance to do a full sequel - we'd totally be designing for a full party from the start.

Unfortunately we're only 90% of the way to even breaking into the top 100 - there's a lot of hate on Greenlight for games that were already released on mobile devices. The funny thing about that is pretty much everyone who hates SMRPG for that reason always seems to own at least one game that is available on iOS.

The good news is that the Steam crew has always been receptive of us in the past - we can still try to get on to Steam through the normal channels.

First episode is free, so download it and give it a try! If you like it please consider buying episode 2 + 3. We need all the support we can get!

Very inventive, creative and quirky. I'm so glad episode 3 is coming so soon.
I'm glad you came back and tried it again - we did a huge balance update in May so maybe that improved your experience. With the upcoming update we've done even more to make the start of the first episode a better experience. We toned down the tutorials, tightened up the intro graphics, and made everything flow better. Hopefully more people who didn't initially enjoy it will come back and like what we've changed.

This new update will add a deluxe upgrade to the free version that goes down in price with each episode bought. If you want to keep progress, buy Episode 2 now and then upgrade to deluxe when the new update hits (that will unlock Episode 3+ and all arena battles).

I noticed, mate, I noticed That's another reason why I'm growing to strongly dislike the GL community.. it brings out the trolling nastiness in people who are, for all intents and purposes, given free rein to be as malicious towards other developers as much as possible. That kind of reaction can be incredibly disheartening and it tarnishes the entire PLATFORM

Sadly it's another case of the "vocal minority"

Hopefully you guys can cut proper deals with Valve and get onto Steam without having to go through that troll-infested craphole on GL. I've seen amazing games get torn to shreds by the slathering hatemongers, for no other reason than "I dun lyk dis genere, loololol rpgmaykr crap" nonsense. Then you see games that don't even EXIST that get loved by everyone and Greenlit onto Steam -- I mean, wtf? Interstellar Marines? It doesn't EXIST! >_<

Well the first episode was easily one of the most polished RPGs Ive played its a little short by RPG standards but perfect length for Saturday Morning cartoon standards

You guys should try to get this game on the WiiU eshop. Seems like it would be the perfect platform (besides mobile)
