Blog Moved To Tumblr

June 9, 2013

Just a small post to say that my blog has now moved to tumblr (same address as before pixeltao.ca). I also moved most of my old posts there. I will still keep this wordpress blog live in case people would like to access some old posts or comments that I didn’t transferred. See you on tumblr!

“Kickstarting” Mercenary Kings

August 14, 2012

We’re launching a Kickstarter for Mercenary Kings today! We really want to make this game the best it can be, and to achieve that we need additional support.

We hope that people will see the huge potential of this game like we do and will be willing to participate in this adventure! Our backers will get cool rewards (the most basic one being a digital copy of Mercenary Kings and a digital copy of Wizorb).

We tried to describe Mercenary Kings as thoroughly as we could on our Kickstarter page, so you can check it out here:

As you might have guessed by our Kickstarter project image (shown above), Paul Robertson will be doing the animations for the game. On the art side, Jonathan “Persona” Kim, and Stéphane Boutin are also involved in the project, so you can be sure that it’s gonna feature some fancy graphics!

Tarot Village

July 18, 2012

I’ve been wanting to post some backgrounds of Wizorb for a while, but I didn’t want to spoil any surprises. So, here’s what I did: click on the first thumbnail to display the destroyed version of Tarot village (this one is obviously spoiler free), or click on the second one to display the fully rebuilt version (spoiler alert!).

   

In related news, Wizorb is currently part of the summer sale on Steam (until July 23). It’s 40% off, so you can get it for only $1.79 USD! Also, if you haven’t had enough Wizorb and you’d like to play it on a Playstation console, the PS Minis version of the game developed by Beatshapers will be out on July 24.

Mercenary Kings Reveal Trailer

June 12, 2012

This is the first footage of our current game project at Tribute Games, Mercenary Kings! The game is currently in an early prototype stage, so a lot might still change. The music for the trailer was provided by Patrice Bourgeault and the animations were done by Paul Robertson.

Wizorb Smashes Onto Steam!

March 14, 2012

Wizorb is finally coming out on Steam today and it launches at 10% off (which means that you get the game for only 2.69$). The Wizorb game page should go live as we speak, so go check it out!

The Steam version of Wizorb includes 20 achievements and now supports both English and French (vous pouvez maintenant sauver Gorudo en français!).

There’s also a new trailer for those not already familiar with the game:

This release also marks the beginning of new game projects. It’s still too early to reveal anything, but you can follow Tribute Games on Twitter or on our blog to get the latest news. Or you can simply keep checking my blog from time to time ^_^.

Buy Wizorb on Steam!
