Crawl Launch Date, Take Two

Crawl Launch Back On Track!

“Two weeks! Two weeks! Two… weeks? Twoooooo weeeeeeeeks!” -Future Lady


So we’re back on track and finally have a new launch date! Get ready to play some Crawl on August 6th everybody- now featuring a special super-secret new IRS MAN monster!!

We have another little monster clip, and I have made a new little image to celebrate!

Oh yeah, we also have a for-real page up now on Steam- YAY!



Crawl Launch Delayed


We’ve had to make the decision to delay Crawl; we won’t be releasing on July 17th unfortunately – We’re really sorry! I hope this doesn’t mess you guys around too much!

Here is my simplified rendition of how things went down, in GIF format:

image(All news should be delivered in GIFs!)

What happened?

There were some tax issues with us being a partnership based in Australia, so we changed Powerhoof into a Company at the start of the month.

Everything was on track until pretty much the last step, where we got hit with an unexpected bit of red tape that we were told “may take up to 30 days” to resolve. We tried to find a way around it, but there’s nothing we can do.

When is Crawl coming out then?

We don’t know how long we’ll be delayed. It could be a couple of days, it could be a couple of weeks (we REALLY hope not!). As soon as we can we’ll let you all know.

What will we do with the extra time?

We don’t know how much extra time we’ll have, but since we already have the build ready to go we can start adding some of our cool wishlist ideas!


Crawl – Entry 21: The Coven

The Countdown Continues

Nine days to go and here is the second little trailer from our bestiary:

Nice work Shrimpy voicing the narrator and the cackling witches.


Crawl – Entry 14: Spiders

The Countdown Begins!

Here is the first of our little series of monster trailers leading up to launch.

As per usual, awesome voice work by “old shrimp-eyes” and awesome music by Alex Yoder.

Now I Have A Date To Worry About!

There may or may not be a specific launch date mentioned in the trailer… oh crap, better get to work!
