A week has passed since we launched Thea so I though I’d write a short summary.
When launching, we really had no idea what to expect. We’re a small team with no previous Steam releases. We’ve got small (but fantastic) community following the production, but our social reach is quite limited. Thea is an innovative game but it does need some work in many areas – UI, balance, help system – to name a few. There are bugs and spiders and other nasties lurking in many places we had no idea existed.
So when we hit the Publish button and all the positive reviews started coming in, it really put a big smile on our faces. At the time of writing this post, we’ve got 78 reviews and 76 of them are positive (so 97%). I spent the entire week replying to requests from youtubers and review sites. We’ve pushed 8 updates fixing stuff (also managed to break the game for a couple hours :P). We’ve got lots of feedback and requests from the community, and the community we’ve got is absolutely fantastic!
Right now we’re preparing a new update, that, among other things, adds the ability to reshuffle cards before a challenge.
Also, a number of people asked us when will they be able to buy Thea on GOG.com. For the game to be considered by their marketing department, they need to see there is a demand for it. So if you’d rather buy the game there – please support us by leaving your vote on their website.
