Oceanhorn blog has been updated:


Sorry for the long radio silence everyone.

There is a good reason for that, we just can't talk about it yet! We had to focus on another project to give a glorious finish to a work we started years ago. It was also a mean to secure our company's and Oceanhorn's future, so I hope people who are waiting for Oceanhorn won't be mad at us. We were able to make a great game and we are quite excited about it and the possibilities it gives us in the future!

Game development can be such an treasure hunt!

"We hired some help from our old friends so we can speed up the development"

Oceanhorn is coming up nicely! In fact, we hired some help from our old friends at Frogmind so we can speed up the development. They are super talented and we are glad we got them working with the menus and map mode!

We worked together on games such as Star Wars: Force Unleashed Mobile, DeBlob and DeBlob: Revolution for iOS, until THQ decided to shut down our old studio. Well, I'm sure none of us complains about that anymore. Establishing your own company is the best thing you can do for your career, if you have the right people at your side!

So what's going on with Oceanhorn, you ask? Even though we haven't been able to develop with our full potential because of the unannounced project, a ton of things has happened since we showed our Secret Gameplay Video.

- New enemies!
- Water shader!
- New battle effects and animations!
- Menus!
- Worldmap!
- Story is nailed down and script is written!

Thanks for following us and stay tuned for more video leaks from our "marketing department"!
