Happy New Year Everyone!
Sorry for not being any active all through last year, but there was simply nothing to tell apart from “still nothing to show, please keep waiting”…
After spending a long time tackling several dead-end side projects and experiments, as well as living a busy family life, I’m now ready to get back to working on the next chapter of the GemCraft series.
I wish you a year of great game releases, I’ll write you as soon as we’re getting somewhere with the next GC!
There’s still nothing to show or tell about the next game, just wanted to wish all of you a happy winter holiday and an awesome new year with lots of game releases, hopefully by us as well! 🙂
If you still haven’t obtained GemCraft CS on Steam (and you have Windows on your PC), it’s a great opportunity again to get it with a huge discount as the Steam Winter Sale has just started.
I’ll write about the next game when the time comes, See you next year!
First of all, for one week, you can get the Steam version of GemCraft Chasing Shadows at a 30% discount!
Also, haven’t posted about it yet, but a new build of GC:CS has arrived recently for both the Steam (v.1.0.6) and AG/Kong (v.1.1.16) versions.
List of changes:
- Fixed: outcome panel could show negative mana spent on amplifiers with high level masonry skill
- Fixed: Spiritforge controlled towers with their gems stolen by a specter stated that a new gem can be inserted
- When the Forgotten locks the gui, the call for early waves is withdrawn
- Fixed some typos
- Waves enraged by the Forgotten can’t be cleaned of rage anymore
- Fixed a bug involving specters almost leaving the battlefield with a stolen gem
- Minor change at field V7: One of the Spf towers upgrades its gem later
- (Steam only) Added Alt+Enter shortcut to switch full screen
New builds are uploaded for both Steam (v.1.0.5) and AG/Kong (v.1.1.15).
- Demolishing a tower while its gem was shooting a beam left the beam vfx stuck
- Waves right after a spark couldn’t be unangered
- Orblets dropped by monsters banished by the Scythe Gate disappeared
The Steam Summer Sale has started! For a limited time, GemCraft Chasing Shadows is on sale at -50%!
This is that special time of the year on Steam when lots of games are sold at a huge discount. If you have been waiting to get the game at a lower price, the day has finally come!
After a delay of more than a year, GemCraft Chasing Shadows have finally arrived to Kongregate! It has all the latest changes and starts with v.1.1.14, synced with the AG version.

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.
