Playing Crawl Online with Parsec

Online Crawlin’

We’ve recently been trying out a service called Parsec which allows you to stream a game and have friends play along remotely, and we’re happy to be able to give it the Official Powerhoof™ Severed Thumbs Up of Approvalยฎ!

Parsec lets you stream a game and have friends watch and play along with their own controllers. Latency was my biggest worry, but it wasn’t a problem when we played, certainly no worse than our dodgy indie implementation of online multiplayer would have been!

If you want to try it out yourself, there’s more details here.
 

Powerhoof Official Discord

In case you hadn’t noticed the fancy widget, we now have an official discord server. Come chat to us about things, or find someone to play Crawl with!

Crawl is Out Now on Switch YAY

A portable version just in time for Christmas!

Now we’re on Switch we’ve gone 100% family friendly. No more ancient terrors and harrowing tentacled beasts, just wholesome fun, good cheer, and a jolly old time playing video games with your friends!

Okay, might be a slight touch of endless cosmic horror still in there…

Switch Release Date Is Out

Crawl is launching on Switch, December 19th!

 
We have our Switch version of Crawl all polished up and ready to go, launching just in time for Christmas woo!

What a pleasant surprise to have Nintendo put out this perfect little console for local multiplayer!

Switch is such a great match for Crawl, and I’m stoked to have a game coming out on a Nintendo console – 12 year old me would totally lose his mind over this, haha ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks for all the support, we have such a great community around this game, and I hope you have a blast with Crawl on the Switch!!

Crawl on consoles?

The move to consoles brings up beef!

Looking back at our ups and downs trying to get Crawl done, there is one silly email I sent that always makes me think “holy crap, how is this my job?!” haha.

Crawl is out TOMORROW????!?!?!?!?

Narrator Voice Behind-the-Scenes

Time for more Shrimpy!

Getting close to launch time means making another trailer, which means another incredibly professional recording session with Ye Old Shrimpeyes!

Hopefully it doesn’t shatter the illusion haha ๐Ÿ™‚

CRAWL CHRISTMAS CUPDATE!

Update v0.12: Eye Bat is ready in time for Christmas!

Welp, we’ve got a bunch more Crawl stuff out for the holidays!

image

Apart from expanding the eye bat evolve tree, the main focus this update has been monster balance. A lot of the crappier monsters have been tweaked/buffed, and a few of the more powerful guys have been tweaked to be less OP.

Aaaaand… CHRISTMAS PRESENTS WOOO! Hehe I hope you all enjoy it, and please let us know how the monster changes are working for you!

CRAWL Halloween Update!!!

Update v0.11 (Vengeful Spectre) is here

We have an extra spooooky update out for Halloween yay!

image

We always envisioned the ghosts flying all over the place and haunting things but never had a chance to implement it til now, and I’m so glad we did! Zip around the place rattling chains, making paintings bleed, or inhabiting furniture to fling it across the room! We have two fishy new monsters, a crapload of bug fixes, and finally MIMICS! Watch out for those chests, becuase some of them can be sneakily inhabited by spirits, and those things pack a mean chomp!!

Hope you have fun with it all ๐Ÿ™‚
