250k get, Streams, Lore, Xanadu and more!

We’ve passed 250k!

Go team! We’ve now smashed the 250k barrier! We’re nearly 60% there, and on the way to make Them’s Fightin’ Herds a reality! Of course, there’s still a ways to go, so let’s keep on spreading the word. Remember, we have prizes for the people who bring in the most in referred pledges to the campaign!

To refer your friends, just log in to your IGG account, go to our crowdfund page, and use the unique links provided in the left side of the screen to help spread the word.

And to keep in the spirit of crowdfunding and progress, we’d like to announce our second stream.

The next Them’s Fightin’ Herds game/work progress stream will be on Saturday Oct 10, same ungulate-channel, same ungulate-time. (4PM PT/7PM ET).

We’ll be showing a bit more game progress, working on the game’s art/mechanics pipeline, and Lauren will be comin’ in for a spell to answer some questions and have a chat with the stream! Don’t miss it!

Tomorrow: Book of Lore

The next Book of Lore update will also be happening tomorrow, with a short prose story by Lauren Faust about Cattlekind and Arizona’s pre-game background.

And after that? More updates! More lore, more gameplay progress, more streams, and Lauren Faust will be making more appearances as well. =)

Them’s Fightin’ Herds at Xanadu

We had a bit of an event at Xanadu during their last monthly to showcase the game’s progress and let the locals have a bit of an early test of our current build. Here’s a small featurette with some of their first impressions on Them’s Fightin’ Herds.

Frequently Axed Questions.

Also, to clarify a couple things we’ve been seeing lately, here’s a mini Frequently Axed Questions.

Q. Now that you’re greenlit, when is the beta happening?

A: We don’t have a specific date set. It will still depend on the crowdfund being a success and our development schedule being set in stone. Q4 2016 seems like a rough estimate, but no promises this early in development.

Q. Will the game have Early Access on Steam?

A: Nope. We do not feel that an Early Access period would be of much benefit to Them’s Fightin’ Herds, so it’s not currently in our plans. If you’d like to help us test the game ahead of release and have a peek at our progress, our Backers Beta is your best option, which is in the Guardian Sheepdog ($40) tier or greater!

 

Once again, thanks to everyone for your support and let’s continue makin’ Them’s Fightin’ Herds a reality!
