Last year, Zems, an online collectible card game developed by Impulse Limited, held a public alpha and a Kickstarter. While the Kickstarter did not meet its goal of $40,000, only raising a little over $6,000, its alpha and promotions managed to helped it gain a sizable following in the community. So it is exciting to see the latest developments.

As we look back at the year 2015, We see a lot of great things happening for Oklahoma game developers. We had a number of successful tabletop game Kickstarters and quite a few games hit Steam and other platforms. This year was all about the developers and they games they make. So let’s review.
With Christmas right around the corner, there is nothing to get you in the holiday spirit more than the announcement of a horror shooter video game. That’s where Black Box Games comes in with its first official announcement and trailer for Blight Night, an 80s horror themed game for mobile devices. According to the official website for the game, Blight Night is described as a “Part 1980s horror flick, part puzzle-solving adventure… without sacrificing the splatterfest.”
While Dano Kablamo’s Kickstarter for Gnomes vs. Fairies failed to reach its funding goal, Dano is not done yet. We wrote back in July that GvF was greenlit for sale on Steam and Dano has now launched the game via the Steam Early Access program.
Due to some unexpected bugs, Impulse has delayed its alpha and Kickstarter until November. They explain the details in a post on their Facebook Group:
We’re officially postponing the alpha to November 14 (3 weeks from now).
Here’s the short version of what happened: We put a lot of features on our plate, and while we did get them developed, we didn’t plan enough time to account for bugs and problems. Moving forward, we are going to allot more time to testing and stability, which is why we are delaying by 3 weeks. I’ll be sending an email soon to everyone about this.
EDIT: Our Kickstarter and Greenlight campaigns are also postponed to Nov 16. We hope you continue to support us as we move forward with this project.
Our original report on the alpha and Kickstarter is below.
In their latest video update (which is no longer available), From Soy Sauce announces the release of the Definitive Edition of Glass Wing. This update is a response to one of the most requested content updates from fans of the game.
Just a few weeks ago, Dano Kablamo of Prismic Studios put his game Gnomes Vs Fairies up on Steam Greenlight. The game already had a bit of a cult following on sites like Reddit and apparently, that following carried over to Greenlight and the game was greenlit after about 3 weeks on the service.
I spent some time playing the latest version of the game available for download at the Prismic’s website. While the game is still in a very early stage of development, it shows a lot of promise.
GvF stars a gnome on a mission to free his fellow gnomes from the clutches of an evil and insane fairy king and his fairy and monster forces. There is a lot of variety to the monsters from bats, to blocky monsters that look similar to Meatboy and large plant monsters.
