Hi, this is Kristy. I’m one of the programmers here at Wraith (and Jay’s fiancee). I’m also designing the puzzles for Collapsus. This is my first blog post. I hope you all like it. As you know, we’ve been pretty busy here at Wraith trying our hardest to get Collapsus out as soon as possible. 2016 has been a really big year for us. We’ve been to 13 conventions this past year, and have had more interviews and press than I can count. We’ve had literally thousands of people pick up and play Collapsus. We even managed to get people hooked on it who claimed they didn’t like “this type of game” or seemed generally disinterested. I always tell people that Collapsus is like a Rubik’s Cube that plays Tetris. And it is. We’ve brought something brand new to the table, and we want it in every person’s hand.
In other news, Collapsus has made it not only to the Top 50 for App of the Year this year, but we placed! Collapsus placed Number 4 in the “Upcoming Apps” category! Awesome! Last year it also made the Top 50, but didn’t place. To think that we’ve come so far! We’re so very proud! To think that this game started out as a hobby project for one person, and now it’s become this big thing that everyone seems to love (who would’ve thought?). And we want to make it even bigger!
We’d like to give a big thanks to everyone who voted for Collapsus on Slide DB! We could not have done it without all of your support! You guys are the greatest! Rock on!
Like I said, we’ve been pretty busy getting things hammered out as quickly as we can. Early access is now on itch.io and Jay and Mark have been working on weekly builds (this is our second week live). If you’re itch-ing to play the game, head on over here: https://wraithgames.itch.io/collapsus and check it out!
While that’s been going on, over the last couple weeks I’ve been working on puzzles for Puzzle Mode, over 50 of which I’ve built so far. That may seem like a lot, but keep in mind that we’re going to have over 200 puzzles in the core game as well as (at least) 365 (different) daily puzzles! Whew! I’d better get cracking!
Jay sure has been getting cracking lately. This week he’ll be interviewed on the radio station WVXU as well as -- get this -- on Fox 19 news! How exciting! I’m not exactly sure when these will air, keep an eye (and ear) out for these interviews!
That’s all our news for right now! Stay with us as we keep you updated on progress and weekly builds!
