This is a first! Our game Broken Lines got some fan-metal from Swiss / Italian metal band Asuryan.
Very nice of those guys! :D

A shot from @Malte_Burup upcoming 'Retrofuturistic psychiatry simulator' (co office guy). I may have prodded him along to show stuff to the world. ;)
Haven't played this latest iteration of the concept yet. Played an earlier iteration. It wasn't totally there at the time and it was scrapped. But I have high hopes for this latest incarnation. :)

And it seems things are going very well for out other basement co-office dwellers at Triband.
What the golf was recently featured in a high profile Apple Arcade Ad. And they did all that without rolling physical golf balls in anyones direction.

As mentioned by @JesperSB King of Retail Currently in Steam Early Access. Developed by a small DK 3 man indie team. Is becoming quite a little indie success story.
Also the simulation category is great to be in if you have a well made unique offer with the right appeal (especially to Germans ;) ). So good job Freaking Games! :cool:



They were recently featured on TV2-Øst here.

Another DK release!
Former IOI guy (in the early days) Peter Fleckenstein from KriflE ApS is behind Mojo. A concept where Tinder-Like dating app meets Wordfeud-like gameplay. Following their first Wordfeud-like game 'Vortludo' in Esperanto.

Mojo, a possible brilliant concept! But let's see how things turns out. Currently only on 10+ GooglePlay downloads. So I hope they have some serious marketing money up their sleeve. That will be needed. :)

The next project from Flashbulb Games.


Rubber Bandits

Looks cool! Physics based heist game. Very likely multiplayer.

And actually not sure why they went with Unity over UE4. They have a lot experience with physics driven UE4 development on Trailermakers. I know they are not stranger to Unity either. But it's an interesting decision.




** Or I assume it's Flashbulb Games behind it. The beta sign up link takes you to a page with Flashbulb Games in the title.

And it's Broken Lines release day today! On Steam and GOG.
The 5th+ released game I worked on at PortaPlay after starting a couple of years ago. Also the biggest project so far at that specific company.

Personally expecting sort of okish magazine/gamesite reviews. Around the 7/10 mark. But let's see how things turns out. The pre-launch wishlising looks pretty good! So that's something. And the first user review is a 10/10.. so I plan not to look at that page ever again and stay with the memory. :D ;)
