We are happy to be able to announce that Shadow of the Game has won the Best Concept award at the Norwegian Game Awards this year, and we hope many of you are busy testing out the BETA version of the game. Our thanks go to all of you who downloaded the Shadow of the Game BETA. It is no longer possible to download the BETA as we have removed the link from our forum and are waiting for your feedback.
We are very happy with the number of people who signed up for the BETA and all the support we have received on Steam Greenlight
. Right now, we are working on linguistic stuff and waiting for further comments and bugs to be reported from the BETA testing.
We see that some of our BETA testers have posted their feedback on Steam Greenlight. This is very helpful as others are able to see what you think about the BETA and they get a better idea of what the game is like. Keep up the good work! It is extremely hard to get noticed on Greenlight, so we need your support.
Regarding the release date and distribution, we are not locked to Steam, and we are looking to publish Shadow of the Game on as many distribution channels as possible. We have been contacted by several channels which are interested in selling Shadow of the Game, and we have a list of distributors which we will contact ourselves.
As soon as final adjustments to the game (based on your feedback from BETA testing) are complete, and we have some clarity around the Steam Greenlight possibility, we will set a release date – with or without Steam distribution. If you are a game distributor who is interested in distributing Shadow of the Game, contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Rounding up we would like to mention that Shadow of the Game has to date received two awards and several nominations. This year’s Norwegian Game Awards gave Shadow of the Game the Best Concept award. We were also nominated in the Best Sound category. Previously, we received an award at The Gathering based on the Alpha version of the game.
Remember to vote on Steam Greenlight and to post your feedback!
