Local legend in line for a glittery gong.

Musician John Broomhall is very happy to report that the music of Lost Ember has received an Ivor Novello award nomination!

Have we got booze for you! (Not real booze)

We've just launched a survey about one of our next projects called Brewmaster. It'll involve making beer, spirits and a whole range of alcohol. To thank you for your time everyone who fills in the survey is entered into a giveaway to win £25 of Steam credit! 

If you're able to fill in the survey we'd really appreciate it, and you'll be helping to shape how we take this game forward! 🍺 The survey will take about 5 minutes to complete.
