The latest Humble Bundle is here and we couldn’t be happier to include Jack Lumber! We’ll be amongst such quality games as Gemini Rue, Little Inferno, Hero Academy, and Anomoly 2. Also included in the bundle is our joint-collaboration with Dejobaan Games, AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! for the Awesome, which is now available for Linux and Android as of today!

It’s really quite humbling to be part of this bundle (pun fully intended). Check it out!


Props to the amazing John Graham and the whole Humble Bundle team for the epic line in the video above: “Pining fir some spruced up wood-cutting action? Well you don’t have to be a math whiz to find natural logger-rhythms!”. <3

Dyscourse is happening!!

It’s been a really crazy past 30 days and we’re happy to announce that our Kickstarter for Dyscourse is a success!!

We thank you, our fans and supporters, for believing in us! Throughout the past month a lot of very cool stuff has happened and we thought we should break it down for everyone:

The CEO of Unity, David Helgason, gave Owlchemy this amazing shout-out!

We announced an awesome additional bonus story called the ‘Indie Plane Crash!’, starring a cast of intrepid indie developers who may find their game development skills to be a bit ‘useless’ on a desert island!

We’ve put together a mini-documentary on what makes Owlchemy Labs feel super Owlchemy-ey (yes, that’s now a word)!

We also announced that we’ll be continuing in this vein by creating a behind-the-scenes documentary of the development of Dyscourse thanks to our pal Alex Smith!

We also had some really great praise on Dyscourse!

  • “What a good art style, and what a good concept too.”Rock, Paper, Shotgun
  • “The game has a bright art style, funny characters, and numerous, vastly different endings.”GameInformer
  • “The style and quality of the visuals are top notch!”IndieStatik
  • “Dyscourse is Owlchemy Labs’ most ambitious project to date”Joystiq
  • “This game looks amazing, and dialogue/storytelling is something that’s a very big deal to me”NerdyButFlirty

Also, a super minor thing…

Indie Plane Crash Announced!

indie_island_press_fullsize

We’ve just announced a bonus scenario for our up-and-coming game, Dyscourse! This time, you’ll be trying to survive the trials and tribulations of the island alongside some of the most beloved independent game developers! Not only will you have to deal with the aftermath of a freak plane crash, you’ll have to handle a group of highly-regard game professionals who are “technically talented, but utterly useless in survival situations.”

The cast of characters so far confirmed to be marooned include:

“They can code, but can they catch cod?” asked Owlchemy Chief Scientist Alex Schwartz. “This additional scenario will explore what happens when these stars of the indie scene have to sleep under the big sky, fighting the elements and potentially each other to survive until rescue.”

Help us make this happen by backing our Kickstarter!
