“Why is the Princess in a Magic Forest?!” and “ikenie” have been Greenlit!

HUGE NEWS! Both Why is the Princess in a Magic Forest?! and ikenie have just been Greenlit on Steam! We are in the process now of finalizing the games to get them ready to be purchased and played. I want to thank everyone for their support throughout this process (which was excruciatingly long – but, hey, that’s the life of small indie teams, I guess). Since ikenie has been on sale on itch.io for a while now, the ikenie Original Soundtrack has already been available on Bandcamp, but now I’ll finally be able to release the Why is the Princess in a Magic Forest?!  Original Soundtrack as well. As readers of this blog will know, that was the very first game soundtrack that I composed. The fact that the game and the soundtrack are finally about to be released is such a huge moment for me. It’s the culmination of a lot of hard work and love for composing music. I feel like I’ve grown a lot as a composer since I wrote the six pieces of music on that soundtrack, but they remain special to me since it was the first time I actually wrote music that was to be used in an actual video game. I really hope you enjoy both of these games and their music!

“Why is the Princess in a Magic Forest?!” is on Steam Greenlight!

A couple of weeks ago, the very first game that I wrote the soundtrack for (I started working on it in the summer of 2013) is finally up on Steam Greenlight. About three years in the making, the game is 95% complete and we’re finally ready to show it to the world. After an awesome showing at Tokyo Game Show 2015, it’s exciting to get the game out there to the rest of you.

We need ‘YES’ votes on Steam Greenlight in order for the game to be made available for purchase on Steam. So, if you’re reading this, we’d really appreciate if you could check out the game’s page and give us a vote. The link to the game’s page is below.

The soundtrack to the game is also available now for pre-order on Bandcamp. I will release the soundtrack as soon as the game is available for sale, so the release date is just a place holder. It could be sooner or later than what is written depending on how quickly the game gets Greenlit. If you pre-order the soundtrack, you’ll get an immediate download of “The Forest Edge” to hold you over.

Lastly, the first review for the game is out. The winner of the Golden Reviewer Award in last year’s Indie Game Maker Contest, Jtrev23, played an early release version and posted a review on his site. Check it out!
