The pre-testing phase is over and we have sent in the bug fixes and difficulty adjustments. The patch will hopefully be out within the next few days, making the game ready for release on the 23rd of January. We want to sincerely thank all the awesome testers for their feedback and bug reports - we don' know what we would do without you <3

Before the release next thursday, we still have some early-access promo codes we want to give out, so if you think the game looks interesting, write a post in this thread and I will send you one. I have also added a few more screenshots to the bottom of the thread.

We're excited to share the game with you guys here on TA, so today we will start giving out promo codes right here. If you want a code, write a reply to this thread, and I will send you a PM - or simply grab one of the codes that I post in a reply to this thread.

We would very much like to get your opinion on the difficulty of the game, and hear about any bugs/issues you run into. There is still time to fix it before release Post your thoughts and opinions in this thread.

Hi guys!

We finally feel ready to show off our new game on TA! So without further ado, here is the teaser for Tree Wars:



Tree Wars is a 2D squirrel-strategy game with hand-drawn graphics, an original soundtrack and a steep difficulty curve. The beavers have landed on the shore of squirrel land, and they plan to take the Tree of Life. As squirrel general, it is your job to captain your heroic troops to battle and fire down mayhem from the skies. Drive the dam beavers back to where they came from!



















Now here is where you guys come in!

We received such amazing and priceless feedback when we developed Butterfly Sky and gave out promo codes on TA before release. We are DEFINETLY doing that again (within the next few weeks). Do you guys have anything else you'd like to see or general ideas? Want to see concept art? More gameplay videos? Unit profiles?

If everything goes as smoothly as we hope, the game will be out in the end of January.

I don't usually like these kind of games, but that artwork is amazing! It's got that Watership Down vibe to it. I might just have to check this one out!

I hope you do! How have I never heard of Watership Down before? A quick googling and I must say that I agree.

There will most definetly be a testing phase! Instead of using testflight, we will give out some promo codes well before release, and rely on you guys for feedback concerning bugs and difficulty
