Oceanhorn Anniversary Update and Competition!

Can you believe it, Oceanhorn was released a year ago! Oh how the time flies, when you're having a good time - and what a time it has been!

We have so far released five updates for Oceanhorn, each of them polishing the game, expanding features or even adding hefty amount of gameplay hours in a form of "Island of Whispers" adventure, but wait - there is more to come!

Oceanhorn 2.5 Update 11th of December

Apple has released a new set of amazing devices and we want to keep Oceanhorn up to date. We have worked hard this autumn to make sure Oceanhorn meets the expectations of those who have the new devices. New iPhone 6, 6+ and iPad Air 2 owners are able to enjoy Oceanhorn with 4x more polygons, new lightning effects (normal maps, ambient occlusion), tweaked character art and tweaked 60 fps performance!

I see something BIG coming!

Can you spot what is new in this update?

Carefully now, don't let it get away! We have been developing this update for a while now! It is something that could be considered as a DLC on console games, but as a token of gratitude for you, loyal Oceanhorn players, we will continue our No-IAP policy and release our DLC and content pack free of charge!

This update is 90% done and we will begin testing soon. We will tell you more about it later, but in the meanwhile this screenshot will help you reel in what this update is about! :)

Is it raining in here? It was clear just a minute ago.

It has been an incredible month since Oceanhorn was launched on Nov 14. The game has been received so well in the media and by the fans that we are left speechless. And on top of all this, we learned today that Apple has included Oceanhorn in their Best of 2013 feature as #1 indie game. We are grateful and proud of this acknowledgement.

We released the first update to the game on Dec 6, and we are currently working on the next update.  We will continue supporting the game and expanding the world of Oceanhorn – The Adventure continues in 2014!

Oceanhorn will be released on November 14th!

People of Tikarel need your help!

Finally! It's the long-awaited launch week of Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas. Apple has approved our GM version of the game and everything is ready! On Thursday, November 14th, it is your turn to join the adventure. We really hope that you will like playing the game as much as we have liked making it.

It has been an incredible ride from the first 2D prototype of 2010 and the first secret gameplay video in 2011 to FDG Entertainment joining the team in the late 2012 and Nobuo Uematsu and Kenji Ito joining the project in 2013. Especially the last couple of months have been really intense. We have literally worked around the clock fixing, tweaking, and polishing to provide you with the best possible gaming experience.

We are very happy with the result. But don't believe the hype. In about 48 hours you can download it to your iPhone/iPod/iPad and judge for yourself!

Meanwhile, please enjoy these untouched screenshots!
