Well folks, as lifelong gamers, we’re pretty familiar with the concept of delaying titles for extra polish. Since Tadpole Treble is our first game, we’ve definitely hit our share of challenges and walls over the past year! As a result, we’re announcing that Tadpole Treble will need a little more time in the oven–the new release is slated for Spring 2015. So while Baton’s not arriving next month, she’s not too far off either!
The delay is mainly to assure that everything’s of high quality and running well. At a certain point, we were hit with the decision to either delay TT or reduce the number of stages/features, and we decided to bank on making the game as fun and polished as possible. So thank you for sticking with us for so long!
So here’s the good news! After quite a bit of work, we’re happy to announce another one of our initially-planned stretch goals into the game. Behold…
Online leaderboards! That’s right, once Tadpole Treble releases, you’ll no longer simply be competing with your own high (and low) scores, but everyone else’s as well! While our leaderboards aren’t yet final, we’re about 90% sure at this point that they can be in every version of the game coming out. Who will reign supreme? (by the way, these scores are placeholders and not really possible, so keep that in mind!)
Also, please ignore the smudgy, suspicious rectangle near the top. Not for your eyes yet, guys!
Besides that, it’s been business as usual. Our final boss stage is still underway, as are our last couple levels before that. Nearly all of the level music has been composed or recorded, and we’ll be working on tweaking and polishing things over the next several months. Including Etude’s little grove here:
That’s all for now! Hope you guys enjoy the upcoming holidays and the barrage of other awesome-looking games coming out this season.
