Dyscourse updates and live-streaming info!

What a whirlwind of adventure running a Kickstarter was! It was 30 days of sleepless nights, endless worry, and the happy surprise of seeing how awesome our fans can be. Obviously we couldn’t have done it without your faith in us. Thank you once more!

Pre-Orders / Slacker Backers

We realize, however, that there may be still some of you who’d like to help make Dyscourse a reality and happened to miss the Kickstarter, so we’re now accepting pre-orders on our main website dyscourse.com. We’ll be accepting Amazon Payments, Credit Cards, and PayPal through the Humble Widget. So it’s not too late to get in on some excellent digital rewards and the ability to check out the game early.

So check it out at dyscourse.com and let us know if you like our swanky new website. We’re getting it ready for the game’s launch by creating sections for reviews, screenshots, embedded video, etc etc.

What else is new?

And of course since the Kickstarter’s funding, we haven’t been sitting on our collective butts; we’ve been in constant development of Dyscourse! We’ve got some new art to show off and a few new features we’ve been refining. We’re experimenting with putting together video updates to show off what’s new so we’ll be sharing that with you folks shortly. :)

Art Live Stream!

The last bit of news we’d like to mention is that on January 11th, 11pm EST (8pm PST), Carrie will be live-streaming her artistic amazingness as part of the Indie Dev Supershow alongside our Community Manager, Eric, who’ll be taking and answering questions!

We’ll be streaming alongside such amazing games as Windforge and Reus. Make sure to tune in and check out the entire line-up here.

Thanks again for believing in us and you’ll hear more from us very soon!

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!

He also has this stylin new Twitter icon!

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…
