Happy 2023!

Happy New Year, shipmates!

What a year 2022 was. We spent a lot of time doing client work in 2022, though we didn’t stop working on our own projects. However, 2023 should be the year you can expect the first peek into our in-production game, The Shadowcross. We are really excited for this one, not only because of its personal importance thematically to our team, but because it’s giving all of us a chance to really stretch and flex our game dev skills!
 

What’s New

To start with, we’re actively seeking a publisher for both digital storefronts and especially for console for Open Spaces SE. We have a shortlist of folks we’ll be sending the Open Spaces SE demo off to, but if you have recommendations, we’d love to hear them. You can email us at queenshipgamestudio@gmail.com, or message us on our socials!

We’re reintroducing weekly Twitch livestreams. The Queenship Sunday Lunch will air each Sunday at 11am EST, featuring non-combative and mostly wholesome and cozy games. We will occasionally dip our toes into darker or more mysterious content, but generally we’re aiming for feel-good vibes with our livestreams from here on out. If you’re all about hygge and Sunday brunch/lunch, this stream will definitely be for you.

We’ve jumped off the Twitter trainwreck for the foreseeable future (looking at you, Musk), but you can follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn for socials updates. Our newsletter will be a little more irregular, but we’ll pop a message anytime we’ve got news to share with you!

We’re still working on Steam distro for Open Spaces SE, but plan to have it done by spring.

While we are super grateful to everyone who’s contributed to our Buy Me a Coffee, for the time being we will be discontinuing updates until we have more to show from The Shadowcross. In the meantime, you are still welcome to contribute to our work if you so desire!

From now on, our newsletters will also be featured in blog form on our main website.

Finally, while the GDLedu game development education programme we partnered with Game Dev London on got off to a great start last year, a reconfiguration of the programme is in order if it is to continue. We’ll send out a blast if the programme resumes!

We hope that 2023 is an amazing year for you, and we look forward to celebrating more wins with you as the year progresses.
 

Stay bright,
Muse at Queenship
