(To the Moon) Holiday Special Minisode

Эгегей, друзья. Я провел прошлый месяц делая этот Праздничный спешал специально для поклонников To the Moon, и я счастлив сказать что он наконец завершен! Это мини-эпизод с Доктором. Уоттса & Доктора. Розалин. с:

Alt. Localizations: Deutsch (German)

(Кроме того в Steam & GoG downloads, но вы должны пройти в ручную в папку чтобы открыть его.)

SigmundCorp_Building

Мини-эпизод длиной всего 20 минут , и вы будете участвовать в маленьком марафоне, как нет ни сохранить особенность (или меню, что касается этого). Действия происходят во время праздников(каникул), в местном отделении Sigmund Corp где Ева & и Нил вновь заняты..

Это довольно беззаботный эпизод (including a nod to Johnny’s story from To the Moon), так что не ожидайте много драмы. с: Although, it does touch on a notable aspect of their job that I avoided to show in To the Moon, as it would’ve distracted from the main story then.

It’s not much, but I hope you guys enjoy it! Consider it a free DLC, heheh.

If you could help spread the word to others who’d played To the Moon and let them know that this exists, it’d be much appreciated as well!

Lastly, I also wanted to take this opportunity to say something about A Bird Story.

I know it’s been repeatedly delayed, and I apologize for that. To be honest, I don’t really know when exactly it’ll be finished. . . It’s not that long of a game at all, but there are things in it that I’m just still trying to figure out. It’s also something that means a lot to me personally, and I don’t want to compromise how it turns out.

All I can say is that a lot has been done for it already, and that it will be finished when it’s ready; I will try my best. А в это время, thank you all for your patience and understanding — I hope you enjoy the holiday special, and the occasional snippets I post on places like the forum, Твиттер, & Фейсбук. с:

More preview tracks added to the A Bird Story OST, over at Bandcamp.

I’ve added a couple more preview tracks to the –A Bird Story– OST, however; and you can also download the new tracks from the minisode from there (1 час, конечно же).

Happy New Year everyone, and thank you all for your support! I’ll try to get the Steam version patched up with the new release later today (only the English version is available for it right now, since it’s fresh out of the oven).

TtM Music Boxes, A Bird Story, & Steam Sale

A year ago, some folks suggested that we should have some To the Moon music boxes made…

So we did!

*Click*

I didn’t know how many we should make at the time and didn’t want to be buried in unsold merchandise, so I ordered conservatively… Apparently it wasn’t enough.

The pre-order for the 2nd shipment is now open for a couple of weeks or so, so I’ll know how many should be made to have enough. Feel free to keep a lookout to my Твиттер & Фейсбук pages for updates with it as well. It should take around 2 – 3 months for the manufacturing of this batch to complete.

For those interested, the pre-order page is here: http://freebirdgames.bigcartel.com/

(Global shipping available.)


A couple of other things:

1. The upcoming game, A Bird Story, has expanded in its scope a bit since the last time. I think it’s been falling into place, and I’m finally comfortably happy with how it’s coming along. . . but there’s still a lot of work to do. Here’s another track for the OST preview from a few weeks ago for those who missed it: Главная

It’s still being released sometimes this year, but at the moment it’s still difficult to say when exactly since I don’t want to rush it. Right now, I’m thinking perhaps around the time of the year when To the Moon was released back then. с: When things are more finalized, I’ll make an update post on that then.

 

2. Steam Summer Sale’s on for less than a week left! Несмотря на то, что To the Moon isn’t going to be on any flash sales this time ’round, I made sure to give it a bigger discount than usual for the entire duration.

 

That’s it for now — I’ll keep you guys updated when something new comes up. Cheers folks, and thanks for the support as always!

To the Moon: Steam Release

We made it! To the Moon is finally on Steam!

http://store.steampowered.com/app/206440/ [EN | GE | FR | IT | + More incoming]

Steam page

The original soundtrack is also available, including in a bundled option. It includes the To the Moon OST plus two bonus tracks that are not in game: a happy piano version of For River, and a beautiful bonus version of Everything’s Alright by Laura Shigihara (@supershigi).

If you’ve purchased the game from this website before, you can redeem your Steam code by emailing (with your order ID #):

reives.freebird<в>gmail<dot>com

I’ll need to manually send them out one by one (and am still waiting on the codes from Valve, though they should be ready within a couple of days), so please be patient. с:


It’s been quite a journey, and I am so thankful for all the kind support everyone has given. This was my first commercial project, and there’s still such a long way to go and lots to learn; but I feel so fortunate to have a chance at making what I love to do what I live to do — and that is all thanks to you folks. Thank you for giving me that opportunity; I know how rare of a privilege that is, and I promise to stay true in making and sharing what genuinely means a lot to me, and hopefully to you too.

There’s a lot more planned for the future, including the second episode of To the Moon’s series (featuring Dr. Уоттса & Rosalene and a new patient), as well as a short game set in the same universe before that. I’m looking forward to announcing these projects, but for now, here’s a preview to one of the songs: http://www.freebirdgames.com/sounds/fpc_3.mp3

For updates, feel free to follow me on Twitter at @reives.freebird & join the Freebird Games’ Фейсбук . с: I’m looking forward to sharing what’s up ahead with y’all.

Thanks again, огромное спасибо. Please try to help spread the word, as it makes all the difference. And hey, drop by at the forum to say hi and hang out with us sometimes!
