Crazy time, people, crazy times!
The last couple of months have been really intense for Studio Evil, with Relive slowly approaching the final stages of development, The Fading reaching a turning point and the birth of an incredible new collaboration with the cartoonist Sio, resulting in our new game Super Cane Magic ZERO.
If you follow us you know we are working on A LOT of stuff. To make this work, we split the whole team in smaller work units that focus on a single project at once. Right now we are working full time on Relive and SCMZ, with the team assigned to The Fading now supporting the final release of Relive, scheduled for early 2015. Once Relive will be shipped, we will move the resources to resuming our work on The Fading, hopefully before April 2015.
Meanwhile, Super Cane Magic ZERO started its life with a bang, thanks to our collaboration with Sio. If you are one of our many non-Italian fans, you probably don’t know him. Sio is a comic book artist, mostly known for the videos on his Youtube channel. His graphic style is very simple, and his strength is his witty and nonsensical humour. Most of his works are in Italian, but he also has a secondary Youtube channel with some English videos.
SCMZ’s crowdfunding campaign was very successful and we almost doubled the initial goal of 20k euros. Considering it was aimed only to the Italian market, it has been an incredible and unexpected accomplishment and we are really happy about it.
The game has also been greenlit in less than week. The project is going strong, and we plan to work on alpha releases and updates for the people who pre-ordered the game. We just released a stable alpha version of the arena mode, and then we started focusing on our next big goal: the update that we hope to have ready for the end of February 2015, and that will mark our Steam early access released if everything goes in a satisfying way. You can get more info about the project on Super Cane Magic ZERO official website.
While we keep working and planning to conquer the world, we want to wish you guys some great holidays and a beautiful, evil new year!
