Where can I buy the game?
Will Ooblets be a phone app or free to play?
No, it’s just a normal game you buy upfront
Will you release the game on the ___?
Mebbe one day bebe! Who knows?
Will there be multiplayer?
We think multiplayer would work really well for Ooblets, but implementing it would basically double the time to make the game, so we’re not planning on it. Maybe we can do it in a sequel!
Do you have a press kit available?
Would you answer some questions or do an interview for an article/video?
We love getting press! With such a small team, though, answering questions takes up a lot of valuable development time. That means we can only really answer questions for publications with a pretty big audience. If you think this applies to you and you’re willing to do an email-only interview, feel free to contact us.
Can I make music for Ooblets?
We’re okay for music, sorry! Our composer is Pedro Silva
Can I do translations for Ooblets?
We’re not doing localizations just yet but if you want to send an email with your localization portfolio, we’ll hold on to it for when we’re ready to look at it. It’d be helpful if you don’t ask for or expect a response.
How do you do your animations?
Our animations are a mixture of work from an animator, stuff we’ve personally mocapped, and things we’ve gotten through Mixamo.
Can I help out?
Yes! It would help if you spread the word about Ooblets! The more people interested in Ooblets means more opportunities open up for us. Every retweet or reblog or shoutout or forward to your grandchildren is super appreciated.
Can I help out and also be paid for helping out or become a part of the team in some way?
We’re unfortunately not taking anyone new on to help out right now.
Can I do work for you for free?
No way! You gotta value yourself and your work so that other people will, too.
Can I submit ooblet designs for you to use in the game?
Unfortunately we can’t use any designs you send in due to intellectual property stuff we don’t really understand.
How do I contact you?
Check out the contact page.
You didn’t respond to my email/DM/PM! What gives?
We actually get a lot of messages all over the place and try to respond to as many as possible. Sometimes we’ll miss some and sometimes we won’t respond to things that have already been answered here in the FAQ. If you feel like we missed something, feel free to boop us again. Also, please don’t send messages that are just “Can I ask you a question?” or “How are you?”– you should just say what you’re looking to say.
Early Access FAQ:
What does early access mean?
Buying the game in early access will let you play the unfinished game now while it’s still being worked on and give you the full game once it’s finished.
What state is the game in currently?
Ooblets is in a very playable state, but there are going to be a bunch of bugs and unfinished parts. There’s an overarching story that plays out through some of your quests that won’t be fully completed until we reach our 1.0 release. Depending on how you play, we’d estimate that there’s about 6-40 hours of gameplay right now.
What will be changing over time?
As we develop the game, we’ll be fixing bugs, improving balancing, and adding content. The goal is to release a new visitable region in each of our major updates (every few months) leading up to our 1.0 release. We don’t know how many there will be in total, but we’re expecting at least 2 new regions to be added. New content releases will have some added clothing options, furniture, decor, and possibly some new ooblets…
Will my save files break after updates?
We’ll try really hard not to break saves, but it may happen from time to time when we update. Sometimes it’s difficult for us to know what might break saves until people start trying to play their old saves. We’ll try to suss things out with an experimental branch you can join if you’d like to see what we’re working on early.
How long will the game be in early access?
We don’t want to make any promises because everything always takes longer than we expect. Our goal right now is to be in early access for a year but that estimate could be way off.
Will the price change when the game leaves early access?
Yeah, the price will likely increase once we launch the 1.0 version.
Can I provide feedback and bug reports to help improve the game?
Sure! You can join our Discord server to leave feedback, bug reports, ask questions, or just chat about Ooblets.
