Shortly after Greenlight success, we attended to Pyrkon 2017. We had our own little Indie Game box where many gamers could check out Sapu. The whole Pyrkon experience was great, the response was incredible, people were awesome giving us feedback and having positive attitude towards us and our game. See this short video from this journey 🙂
Post Greenlight reality
As the dust settled down… a pretty quiet period came by. We had to do some dirty work in terms of code refactoring to be able to move on without a lot of bumps on the road. Also, some private life issues (2 of us changed day job) and Unity update (some strange bugs) happenned that slowed us down. But it’s all behind us and we’re ready to accelerate development! Right now we are focusing on:
● Implementation of (tricky/hopefully enjoyable) save game mechanism
● Cave scene with filthy monsters
● Acquisition of new team members (developers and 3D artists)

Sapu demo premiere in a week!
A lot of you have subscribed to our newsletter to get access to demo. Now, it’s the time to release it publicly for the first time. The demo will be sent to all our subscribers in 17th of June, 2017! For this occasion we’ll set up a discord channel to get the most out of this demo in terms of feedback – looking forward to it! So, make sure to check your e-mail inbox next Saturday!
We are very excited about your first reaction on the game! So if you haven’t already, subscribe to our newsletter to check out Sapu demo!
Also, it has to be mentioned that we still need to add a lot of features/improvements to make the full version, these include:
● Full story introduction
● Character development (with sort of “soul itemization”)
● Spell upgrades and balance
● Other “friendly” characters to interact
● Save game mechanism
● Optimization (so it could be played on older/weaker graphic cards)
We focused heavily on the “gameplay” perspective, as you could read on this blog the entire 2016 year. We assume that action game should have polished gameplay to bring the most fun for player.
