Well I’ve already announced it on another site so I guess it’s only right I should mention it here too. Me and Pineapple are currently working on 2 new titles, spurred on by the good Lunnye sales! Piney is doing the full soundtracks to both these games-
Tempest (relax its just a codename!) is a direct sequel to one of my games, but with a much more fleshed out concept. It should be a couple of hours long.
Hadal is a whole new game. Yes it’s another platformer (hey I likes the genre and have a fairly beefy engine to use) but this one is a shorter game.
