Address is in Vienna. Now you know how I feel about Vienna, never quite comfy there since all that with the Club, but I think, Serena’s a good sort, owe her a favour or two, not so far on the train. Off I pop.
Oct #1: UDOLPHO
First things first: an announcement! We released simplified Chinese last month, which was an extremely weird but also wonderful experience. Once we’ve a few months of data I’ll write a deep-dive into the numbers, but for now, we have another long-awaited localisation to announce: RUSSIAN.
Sept #3: THEODORE
In the meantime, our “State of the Factory: Year 2” should make for interesting reading, if you’re into the business ramifications of pretty much the worst PR a small indie studio could have. AK may turn his hand to some non-game-specific writing, but again, we’ll see what happens.
Blood Sport: Cancel Culture from the Other Side
We are wasting our energy with cancel culture. It doesn’t solve our problem. It doesn’t make things better. It eats up our time and our empathy and hurts people, lots of people, and pretends it’s doing something good. We need structure and accountability and justice to make this industry a better place for women. Structure, accountability and justice are all things cancel culture’s left behind.
The BOOK OF HOURS countdown calendar
I’ll update this calendar every day once we’re live with the Daily Thing, but follow our channels for live updates! If you want BOOK OF HOURS to do well at Kickstarter, please also consider sharing ’em with your followers and communities. The better the KS goes, the better BOOK OF HOURS will be! Probably!
Cultist Simulator mobile: the all-singing, all-dancing data dump
I intend to experiment further with other platforms, but have no official news on the subject right now! Let me know your thoughts on our data above, and if you have any additional numbers you’d like to see. Hope our figures prove useful for devs considering mobile porting themselves. 🙂
MAY #2: KNOWL
Anyway, this post has gone on long enough. Next sprint, a MYSTERIOUS FIGURE arrives at Weather Factory’s doorstep at the start, and I go home for my mum’s birthday at the end. It’s like a Harry Potter novel, if Harry were called Lottie and wasn’t magic.
