Holmade Games on Xbox One!

We've been sitting on this one excitedly for awhile, but Microsoft has just made its official announcement and we can finally report that Holmade Games is amongst the first indie developers to be working on an (as-yet-unannounced) Xbox One project!

We're extremely pumped, and MS has been wonderful to work with.  Stay tuned for further announcements on specific titles as the details become available! :)

Happy Hallowe'en!

Boo!!

Sorry, didn't mean to scare you... or did I?

So hopefully you're all having tons of fun with Hurdle Turtle 2 on this spoOOOoky day.  However, for those of you looking for more retro thrills and chills (or those of you who don't have an Xbox 360) check out our fan game Luigi's Pac-Mansion on your PC!  I'm fairly confident you can figure out which two popular games this one fuses together.

Enjoy, and once again, have a Happy Hallowe'en!
