Lexington named 6th best city to be a game developer.

Posted by:

Lexington named 6th best city in the US to be a game developer, and Frogdice was one of two local studios mentioned!

“Lexington boasts the 26th best cost of living and 21st best mean salary for software developers making it a comfortable place to live for those with jobs. However, competition may be tougher in Lexington than in other cities on the list as there are only six game development studios in town, such as Frogdice and SuperSoul.”

Woo Hoo!

STASH: winner of Taco Bell’s “Feed the Beta” best indie game competition.

Posted by:

Feed-the-Beta-Award

We are excited to announce that STASH was chosen as a winner of Taco Bell’s 2017 “Feed the Beta” best indie game competition!

https://www.feedthebeta.com/

But the most exciting part of this is the help from Taco Bell promoting Stash and our launch.

We have access to a private forum with a group of gaming media and marketing experts they have gathered to help the winners promote their games. This includes media, twitch streamers, and youtubers with some pretty big audiences.

It is exciting and validating to have STASH chosen as a top indie game. The help they will give us promoting the game will really be huge. The toughest thing about indie game development is getting the word out. This should be a big boost in that area.

Wheee………

Tower of Elements in the Lexington Herald Leader

Posted by:

This was a really great and very detailed article about Tower of Elements in the Lexington Herald Leader:

Defend your tower from The Void in Frogdice’s newest release

So came the tale of how you must defend your tower from the onslaught of The Void army, a group that rose to prominence in Primordiax.

“Basically, The Void abhor existence,” Hartman said. “They are a power of nihilism, and they want the universe to cease to exist.”

So as The Void approach your tower, you must defend it by matching the runes inside. Each match sends out a powerful blast that can destroy enemies in its path.

Polygon writes about Tower of Elements

Polygon wrote about Tower of Elements and our charity promotion:

Tower of Elements developer teams up with Stop Hunger Now to feed the hungry

I think one of the Polygon readers said it best:

“Downloaded demo: check

Played demo: check

Bought full game: check

Just realized I’ve been playing this game for almost 6 hours straight: check

I have no idea how much is left in this game, but I hope they make a sequel.

We need more developers willing to make different, original games like this. Taking established game mechanics and using them in totally different ways is a great way to make a game feel comfortable and approachable but still fresh and new.

Nice work!”   -Bellacasta

Thank you, Bellacasta!
