The Banner Saga Status Update Released
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Stoic recently released a new status update for the company's upcoming strategy role playing adventure game, The Banner Saga. The update offers a detailed progress report on what has been accomplished so far. The Banner Saga will combine elements of turn based strategy, role playing, and adventure games, and will follow the exploits of a band of vikings.

Since the last update we've accomplished:
  • Final art for every major combat UI
  • Final art for every major gameplay UI including upgrading, matchmaking and team-building as well as the option menus, combat resolution screen and many miscellaneous functions.
  • Final UI functionality for combat
  • Gold standard combat environment
  • Final, animating character portraits
  • Final base combat particles
  • Implemented the majority of the playable character animations
  • All tooltips for every ability and action in combat
  • The locomotion system that allows us to adjust the speed of an animation versus how fast they move across the screen to avoid the "sliding" effect common in 2D games
  • We've also made progress toward multiplayer functionality
  • With these latest changes we'll be able to send our contractors a working client so they can begin implementing sound effects, music and creating quality assurance test plans. Within days we'll be able to start playtesting the combat with outside testers.

SpellTower Now Available For Mac
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Zach Gage recently announced the Mac release of SpellTower, a word game previously available for iOS devices. In the game players score by creating words from a jumble of tiles in one of four game modes. SpellTower Mac features include a redesigned control scheme, Retina Macbook Pro support, and Mountain Lion Game Center functionality.

Find and select words in 4 challenging modes. Make long words or use bonus tiles to clear extra letters from the screen!


  • Support For Retina MacBook Pro
  • Supports Game Center in Mountain Lion (10.8)
  • Three Ways To Control Make SpellTower Feel Great Even Without a Touch Screen!
    1. Hold and Drag
    2. Click Each Letter
    3. Click to start spelling, Click again to submit

Pick your words wisely! As you work, more tiles rise from the bottom of the screen, and it'll take all of your lexicological wits and tactical know-how to keep them down. If any of the letters make it to the top row, it's game over.


  • TOWER MODE : No pressure here. Try and get the highest score possible out of 150 letters, eliminating small words to set up 7- and 8-letter blockbusters!
  • PUZZLE MODE : Every word you make adds a new row of letters! Strategic word finding at its best.
  • EXTREME PUZZLE MODE : Puzzle mode with the minimum word length cranked up. Experts only!
  • RUSH MODE : Rows of letters build up over time. Find words as fast as you can, but be careful you don't back yourself into a corner!

    GAME CENTER leader boards and achievements for each mode and highest scoring word!
