Quicky Update 02/08/2015

Hi all,

I apologize for my radio silence during the last few weeks. I’ve had a lot of excited life updates, which have some large consequences for the future of Stingy Hat Games.

After much deliberation and planning, I have rejoined the regular work force. I am still getting into the swing of things at my new 9-5, and that’s where all of my time has been going in the past month or so (both into securing the post and into settling in at it).¬†Obviously, this means that I won’t have nearly the kind of time I used to have to devote to Stingy Hat Games and game development in general. Still, I fully plan to continue working on my projects here, even if they will necessarily have to take a back seat to my daily life.

Since I no longer have the time to fully support my releases, I will be making Silent Station and Land War completely free to play as of February 21st, 2015. To the people who have supported me through buying these two games, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. However, since I have a steady source of income now, it makes more sense for me to want to try and get my games into as many hands as possible, so that means making the games free.

I am also going to discontinue the Microsoft Windows Store versions of my¬†games, starting next week. I have simply had a horrendous time dealing with the Windows Store. Their terms of use are CONSTANTLY updating, and my products are constantly being flagged for this or that brand new infraction that didn’t exist a week before. It just isn’t worth the headache.

How about some good news? Well, I have a new super secret game project currently in development, which I will unveil soon. What I will tell you now is that it is multiplayer, and I’m pretty excited about that. As always, you’ll be able to play it here, on this website, first and for free. So stay tuned for that. I would also like to step up my streaming/let’s playing in the near future, although I don’t have any definite plans for that just yet.
