We didn’t post anything in 2022, so it’s time to get through the year’s highlights.
Last year was hard. We had to focus on keeping ourselves alive (as a company). We changed the bank, since the bank that we used before had got under sanctions. We had to do other business-related things that distracted the team from making games. Not to mention the strong emotional impact of the ongoing events. Many services, like Twitter, Facebook, Slack, LinkedIn etc. were blocked in Russia. Many ad providers stopped displaying ads in Russia, so we had to use VPN to watch ads in our games to check if the integration works. Anyway, we’re still here and making games 🙂
Cursed Treasure 2: Ultimate Edition
We finished and released Cursed Treasure 2: Ultimate Edition on Steam.
This is basically a re-make of Cursed Treasure 2 with some new gameplay features, multiple bug fixes, a few new levels and new balance. Most of the levels are the same, but the enemy waves are different. The players were not happy with this release, mostly because the game is too similar to the existing one. But we still feel it’s a good game — we spent a LOT of time making it. Re-balancing all the levels to make the difficulty good for the new game rule, that allows the enemies to touch the gems and it still counts as Brilliant, took months. And then there were two balance tweaking rounds based on the players’ feedback — the game appeared to be a bit too difficult. This happens when you play a lot — the game feels easy when you know each level too good.
