Devlog #98: Retrovibe is publishing Shardpunk!

Guys, now I can officially share the news with you: after more than two years of part-time, after-hours hobby development I teamed up with a publisher!

This means that:

a) I am working on the game full-time now,

b) I will be releasing the game as a fully-fledged, correctly marketed commercial product.

You can't imagine how awesome this feels!

Now, first things first.

The publisher I work with is Retrovibe. Shardpunk is one of five games that have been announced, with the others being:


Janosik 2

The Looter

And, last but not least, Project Warlock 2 (which does not have an official Steam page. Yet.)

As for Shardpunk, the game is scheduled for 2022. I am still changing and tweaking lots of stuff with the game, and that's one of the reasons I am starting weekly streams where I will be talking about the development. If you would like to see how I progressed with the game so far and help me make the game better, do check it out!

I will be streaming on Mondays at 19:00 CET/12:00 PT/14:00 EST, with the first stream going live on 7th of June at RetrovibeGames.

My first live stream is on Monday. I'm already nervous 0_o

So yeah, I am looking forward to seeing all of you on the streams.

As for the game development update, there was a lot going on. I am in the middle of revamping the weapon upgrades system, and hopefully I'll be able to talk more about it in two weeks.

In the meantime, here are some in-game gifs. Enjoy!

Good news it seems, i hope you can keep your view without the publisher forcing "some changes because of some stuff" like it’s quite often the case.

Any word on PC Linux native support ?

Yeah, I have full creative freedom on the game, so the game's still "indie" :)

We'll see how it goes with the Linux build. When I'll be releasing the next demo, I might be building a Linux version as well - with no guarantee it will work from the scratch.

That being said, I recall someone confirming that it works on some Windows emulation software with no issues.
