GemCraft Steam launch update

Hey Everyone,

Just wanted to give a quick summary of what’s happened since the Steam release, and a bit about the future of GemCraft – Chasing Shadows.

The release so far has been a great success, almost all of your reviews have been positive, and the game even got on Steam’s popular new releases list. :-) Thank you again for being so supportive since the beginning. All your enthusiasm, altruism and help has made it possible to make the latest GemCraft a reality on Armor Games, and then make it through Greenlight to the Steam store!

As a special thanks, Armor Games has given a small amount of Steam keys to randomly selected players last week. More Steam keys will also be given away by AG, both in the ongoing “Guess which Chapter and Field is on the Piece of Screenshot” contest on Twitter, and the just launched “Draw a Gem” contest on Facebook.

Thank you for all the recent feedback you’ve been sending me, I’m trying to fix bugs as they come up and will upload a new build as soon as is possible. The Steam client should automatically update the game to the latest version. I’ll also be going through emails, comments, and forums when I can to answer your questions and feedback.

Steam trading cards will be added soon as well, I just need to finish some of the art.

GC:CS more release info + v.1.1.9 up

Hey Everyone!

The release date of the Steam version of GC:CS is now almost officially set to April 30 – we wanted to avoid the release dates of GTA V and Mortal Kombat X (April 14) with their potential to steal all the player attention, and more time is needed to prepare promotion by AG for the launch, and to get through the Steam review process.
