Hex Gambit Leaves Early Access October 15th!

by

After a successful Kickstarter campaign in August of 2017 and half a year of hard work in Early Access, our competitive turn-based strategy game, Hex Gambit, is finally ready for its official Steam launch! Early Access saw the addition of two minion classes, league play with a community-wide turf war, and the Blitz Royale, our single player challenge mode.

We hope you’re as pumped as we are for this massive milestone! Mark your calendars for October 15th and come be a part of the new Hex Gambit community. You could even grab your copy while we’re still in Early Access and start practicing today.

We know that many of you are waiting for the Nintendo Switch™ version of Hex Gambit, which is currently in development and estimated for a Q1 2019 release. More updates will be coming on that once we have our PC release squared away. Thank you for your patience!

Final Stadium

I’ll probably make some minor tweaks before launch, but I deem this Hex Gambit stadium trailer-ready. Time to capture some footage!

Getting Closer

Not finished yet, but it requires a lot less imagination to see where the new Hex Gambit stadium is headed! The big screen and the pillars on the game board have some odd-looking states when the game isn’t running, but you get the idea. I’m feverishly polishing things up all over the game while I work on a launch trailer for the next few weeks.

New Stadium Progress

Here’s another peek at my progress on the new, more impressive Hex Gambit stadium. This isn’t even its final form!

Coming Up for Air

by

I need to get back in the groove of updating this feed. It’s so tempting to just lock ourselves in a bunker and work! We’ve been busy assembling an interactive tutorial for Hex Gambit and prepping for the next big thing we’ve never done before: localization! We plan to have the game translated into Spanish, French, Russian, and German to help grow our footprint on launch day. The target keeps moving around for when that might be, but the Steam release will come first, and we’re aiming to be on the Nintendo Switch™ in Q1 2019.

We should have a firm date for the Steam launch in the next month or so, but you can always join Early Access if you want to save 10% on our launch price and take a peek at what we’ve got so far.

You’ll never guess what I’m working on today… but if you guessed I’m taking another pass on the stadium artwork, +1 cookie for you. I think this is like my fourth iteration. My goal is to liven things up, make it feel a little sportier, and make the “jumbotron” area a bit more impressive. Here’s the progress so far (the pillars and the big screen look pretty wonky when you don’t feed them a state to be in). Bigger differences are coming next.

Quickie Update

by

Yikes! Almost a month with no blog post. Time definitely flies when you’re focused!

On my side of things, not much has been going on visually, hence the lack of posts. I’ve been helping Alex refine the AI logic and plotting out a first balance pass for our single player mode, the Blitz Royale. I’ve also been polishing up some sound effects, which I can’t wait for you guys to hear. Soon the minions will all be yelping and grunting!

Alex has a first pass on the AI and cinematic flow done, and he’s working on splitting the mode into Easy, Medium, and Hard now. When we have a good playable pass ready, we’ll be streaming to tell you all about it!

Almost done tinkering with this arena background! I’m told Alex has AI working on a basic level today, and my first pass on the single player dialogue is ready to go. Can’t wait to get all this framework in place so we can start battling some bots!
