Humble recently said they’ve got 450,000 subscribers.
In non-monthly news, the yearly Rpg Maker bundle is back:
The 1$ tier has my favorite version of the program. It’s 10 years old though, so YMMV.
Their month long gamejam this year is a little different.
You have one month to deliver a one hour game, any game you can dream up, for the chance to win massive cash prizes. … Instead of looking for a complete package, we are looking for the next big indie game. We want to work with the winner to turn the contest build of their game, into a full commercial game.
Three $ prizes, any engines, prototypes instead of completed games. Sounds like a good opportunity if anyone has some free time and might’ve been interested in throwing something on Steam direct etc. One of my friends is working on one with their teenage kid. I’ll probably participate as well if I can fit it in my schedule.
Last year’s submissions if anyone wants to check out what the competition is like. A terrible depression experience game I made in ~4 hours ended up in the top 25%. Other past winners include Remnants of Isolation, Last Word, & Corine Cross Dead and Breakfast.
