stillalive studios http://stillalive-studios.com Tue, 14 Feb 2017 13:13:03 +0000 en-US hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.6.3 Announcing: Drone Swarm http://stillalive-studios.com/2015/announcing-drone-swarm/ http://stillalive-studios.com/2015/announcing-drone-swarm/#respond Fri, 02 Oct 2015 09:55:19 +0000 http://stillalive-studios.com/?p=2006 We are so thrilled to announce the new project we’re working on today: Drone Swarm!

Drones, controlled by an unknown force, almost wiped out the entire planet. By chance, humans found a way to gain control of the attacking alien technology. They incorporated it into their own ships and set out to look for a new home. Control thousands of drones and explore the galaxy. Make allies, fight powerful enemies and invest in research to get more powerful abilities!

It’s a real-time strategy game set in space. Check out the game page for more information, features, and game facts.

Son of Nor Diary #112 – Release Date http://stillalive-studios.com/2015/son-of-nor-diary-112-release-date/ http://stillalive-studios.com/2015/son-of-nor-diary-112-release-date/#respond Sun, 22 Feb 2015 14:56:43 +0000 http://stillalive-studios.com/?p=1902 Son of Nor has a release date!

  • Julian walks you through all the little details we optimized in the tutorial level the past couple of weeks. There’s so much we improved!
  • After integrating all the voice-overs, all translations, backer characters, credits, names, there’s not much left to do. We looked for an optimal release date and hope we finally found it on March 31st.
  • It’s extremely hard to find a release date for an indie project. We have ONE SHOT at getting a little press brouhaha and it’s important not being drowned by AAA titles that will surely take away journalist’s attention. We spent 3 years developing this ambitious title and it would be pretty stupid rushing it at the cost of nobody noticing. It seems March 31st is a calm week.
  • Having said that, we’re pretty much done with Son of Nor and use the time to improve small things here and there and looking into some last bug reports!
