Oh joy, we’ve finally got a release date set for TJD2
The game will be available on PC, Mac, Linux and iOS on the 25th of August. Today we also start taking pre-orders so you can get the game at a discounted price of $5.99 ($8.99 retail price), with Steam keys and a free copy of the first game included at no extra cost.
Some of you might remember that I wrote about the Mavuno girl’s school project a while back. Ever since I was working with Mavuno in Tanzania I’ve been trying to find a way to continue supporting their work, and now we’ve decided to share 50% of the pre-order revenue with this project.
Indie game development + community development = AWESOME
Andiswa works at the mayors office in Port Artue. Fed up with paperwork and the pampering of corrupt politicians, she dreams of a more glamorous life up in the big city of St. Armando. When Bwana stumbles along, a breath of adventure brightens up Andiswa’s day, as she too becomes involved in the thickening plot of TJD2.
Andiswa is voiced by the talented Julisa Rowe, who was cast for the role through the awesome Voice actors league of Kenya, a talent agency we have cast several TJD2 characters with.
Quick update on our status:
We’re working away at a crazy pace and are still geared for a summer launch. Work work!
Ok here’s my shameless plug for Simon’s last album, performed by the extremely awesome Straight No Chaser Big Band. It’s awesome. Here’s how Simon himself described it:
In August 2012 I was diagnosed with a brain tumour, a Glioblastoma Multiforme which is, unfortunately, malignant.
The idea for this album developed when time became very precious as a result of this illness. The desire to have a permanent record of these pieces became important to me. These are all compositions that I have written for the band over the last 2 years. Some of them were played once or twice in public, many of them were rehearsed and never performed.
I could not have done any of this without the skill and support of the talented and generous musicians that have contributed to this recording. …
I hope you enjoy the music.
With lots of love
Excellent music written by an excellent composer, performed by an excellent band. What more could you possibly wish for? A good cause? No problem. All money goes to charities. The money will be shared out between Brains Tumor Trust (45%), St Peters and St James Hospice (45%) and Scope (10%), the charity for people with disabilities.
I can’t for the life of me figure out a better thing to throw money at!
