We are also now on steam greenlight so if you could give us a 'yes' vote there it would help us to get Grabbles on steam: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=248397935

Thanks!

Check out our new trailer that we released just before heading off to PAX East. It's a huge improvement over our old one and does a pretty good job at showing off the current state of the game.

Just uploaded some multiplayer gameplay footage from +Noble Whale's still-unnamed upcoming game. Everything you see is placeholder art (mostly thanks to +David Plakon) but we've got some real art in the works. You can play the game right now via the link below. The demo includes three very challenging, but hopefully rewarding single-player levels as well as five unique multiplayer arenas. The multiplayer is a whole lot of fun; very fast paced and super competitive. If there are no servers up and you want to try multiplayer just message me and I'll hop in a game with you :)

** NOTE: Requires usb or bluetooth controller (wired xbox 360 controllers work best) **

Give it a try: http://zebadiah.me/ropehook/ 

We are really desperate for some feedback so if you check out the demo please leave a comment and/or fill out this very short survey: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1U1MlMG0juVGQlftXgSUE7OP1xmNv_gQck6Wa71-jhDw/viewform

Thanks!

You can play it right now here: http://zebadiah.me/RopeHook/

It requires a controller, but any usb or bluetooth model should work (including xbox360 and ps3 controllers).

We had a great time at PAX East! It was our first big event so we weren't really sure what to expect, but everything went really smoothly and tons of people got to play and enjoy the game. We can't wait to do another PAX the next chance we get. We've got our eye on the new PAX South that's apparently going to be happening in Texas!

Thanks Mike! Every vote helps. We're really hoping to get greenlit while the kickstarter is running but we're probably dreaming.

Thanks for the offer but we actually just recently brought an artist onto the team. He seems to be a really good fit and we love his work, but on the off chance that he doesn't work out, or we need more art than a single artist can provide, I'll definitely keep you in mind.

In the meantime, we really are desperate for playtesters and feedback, so please check out the demo and let us know what you think.

(I know the controller requirement is lame, we are working on implementing keyboard controls)
