    Rain On Your Parade

    Our boy Yakoob released a new game today, but he is TOO HUMBLE to make a thread about it, so I will!



    https://store.steampowered.com/app/1...n_Your_Parade/

    It's out on Steam, and XBox Gamepass, and Switch, and who knows what else. And it's getting some pretty dang good reviews too! If you don't wanna click on that link but still wanna hear a review, here's mine: it's GOOD. I laughed out loud several times while playing through the beta a while back. And now that it's done and doesn't even have any bugs whatsoever I bet it's even FUNNIER.

    Go play Yakoob's game, folks. It's a good one.

    Haha thank you for the shout out Past few days have been honestly pretty hectic and stressful with early reviews rolling in and lots of last minute things, but I think all the early player impressions have been really positive so it's starting to put my mind at ease a little.

    P.s. there is a stealth level for the TTLG taffer crew

    Ok, I just laughed aloud at one of the game concepts* from the mention in the RPS podcast, so I have to play this.

    Rain On Your Parade ☁️ already has over 150,000 players thanks to Xbox Game Pass

    Say, just what kind of indie studio are you? Those aren't indie numbers!



    Seriously, congratulations.

    I cuddled up with a friend and we took turns playing RoyP levels, slotting about ten in before our usual weekly anime watching. Unfortunately he is very much not a gamer, and he had trouble despite the game being so easygoing. Next week I'll probably handle the twitchy levels and let him do the puzzle ones. Anyway, he laughed at something in almost every dialogue, so that part was a success.

    Hehe, it's over 200k now :P

    You know, it totally blows my expectations, BUT on the other hand I'm wondering how good that really is compared to other GamePass games? I mean, you effectively throw a "free" game at 20+ million people, isn't that just what happens?

    Aww so glad to hear! Yeah I kind of wanted it to be like a Pixar or Disney of games, a game where both adults and kids can play and enjoy for different reasons We've been getting tons of parents tweeting at us so I feel like I did a good job

    P.S. And it makes me SO happy to hear you like the dialogue. I did Headliner before which is like polar opposite, so this is my first attempt at "comedy" writing!

    Oh god that reminds me of how Yakoob was gonna call the game "Pissin' Cloud" until we all shouted at you to call it ANYTHING ELSE.

    I still think my original title suggestion "SOAKS 2 B U" would've been made this an EVEN BIGGER HIT tho.

    I've been pretty quiet recently due to some personal and family issues (and impromptu travel involving my laptop dying immediately, of course), but there's been some progress on the game and we just announced we're working on DLC!



    And on that note, we also partnered with The Yetee to make some Cloudy merch! First time ever I'm making merch for any of my games, so it feels like an cool new step (but also worry it wont sell and I'll feel lame, welp!)



    Here's the link to get yours, if you like it!

    And in last bit of slew of news, also released Steam trading cards for the game. I decided against going with just some nice custom character art and went for a bit more, erm, creative approach. Personally, super happy with how they turned out:




    And that's about it. But p.s. we also did a small fun little cross-promo with Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion ...

    Heya, time has come that I'm looking for a few more beta testers for the Rain on Your Parade DLC! If you're interested in helping out (again??), shoot me a DM and I'll send you instructions

    In the meantime, here's a little sneak-peek from one of the levels which... might ring a few bells ;p
