In less than three weeks, on October 23rd, a monumental event is taking place. Splot, a game we’ve been developing for over 7 years is getting released on the App Store, and Humble Frozenbyte Bundle buyers will get the Windows version!
Splot, a cute blue alien has crash-landed onto a strange planet. As the trailer shows, also the Hungry Blobs have crashed and now intend to capture and eat the native creatures. Your goal is to race against the Blob Kings and rescue the birdlings!
Splot combines the gameplay mechanics of a modern mobile title with the depth and detail of an old-school platformer, with sharp new controls and crispy visuals.
Splot will be a paid game, as we feel there’s still a chance to be successful without going the free-to-play route on the App Store. Time will tell 🙂
More info in the upcoming weeks! In the meanwhile, if you like, you can follow Splot on Facebook.
This is great news! I hope it will be challenging enough on the PC! 🙂
This is the obligatory angry comment about why the Linux version isn’t being released on time, how Linux users are treated as second class citizens even when they love to pay more for the same games, and how Linux users are not an insignificant source of income and other such ranting.
We’re really sorry about the other versions lagging behind. We’d love to have all versions out simultaneously but the reality is that Linux is a bit trickier platform for us.
We only have a few people at Frozenbyte who have Linux experience – and Splot is made on Marmalade rather than our engine, so we are depending on them for the Linux support.
Hi great news thx for it… So Humble Frozenbyte Bundle owners will get a steam key?
You will be able to get it through Humble Bundle, since we are releasing the Windows version only to the Humble Frozenbyte Bundle owners. So no Steam keys at least yet.
No Android version either? Was hoping that would be part of the HB.
Will the Mac version EVER be included for Frozenbyte Bundle owners? We’ve been waiting for YEARS! Please don’t forget about us and/or make us buy it again if we want to play!
so any good news when splot will release on steam?… or Jack Claw ?…
Unfortunately Splot is only available through Humble Store to those who purchased the Humble Frozenbyte Bundle. We currently are not planning a Steam release. Jack Claw was cancelled years ago. We’re currently focusing on Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power and other yet unrevealed projects. 🙂
