I’m so glad to finally be able to blab about all the exciting secret stuff that’s been going on with Ooblets lately.
How do I build up the suspense here? Ehhh never mind here it is:
Ooblets is getting published by Double Fine
If that weren’t enough, we’re also announcing that our initial release platforms are going to be PC and Xbox One!
PC & Xbox Oob
Xbox is building up a really impressive indie lineup and we’re super thrilled to be invited to be a part of it.
Just a little context:
This time last year, I was wondering if I should even embark on indie game development. I was honestly terrified of going out on my own and trying to make my own games.
All the potential outcomes I had imagined were no where near how insanely awesome things actually turned out. If you had told me back then that Double Fine and Microsoft would be interested in my game, I’d probably say something like “yeah sure, and I suppose Donald Trump will be the next president of the United States…”
So what does this change for us?
We’re going to keep doing what we’ve been doing, but we now have a lot more support from people who know what they’re doing, so we’ll hopefully be avoiding a lot of dumb mistakes we were otherwise planning on making.
More generally, we’re now a bit less afraid of failure since so many people believe in us. We’re so thankful to have you all alongside us on this weird journey.
