The fate of Catapult for Hire
Release date: TBD
Catapult for Hire is an action-adventure RPG where exploration and puzzle solving are done with your skillful and creative use of catapults.

No job is too big or too small. One moment you will be solving huge Zelda-like temples and in the next you are helping a gigantic lazy ogre complete his chores.

Earn gold, find and unlock new catapults, fight epic bosses, craft new payloads, heck you can even go fishing.

The story is a satirical look at modern issues in a medieval setting. You play an out of work knight during an economic meltdown who turns to freelance catapultry to make ends meet. Even in a whimsical world, life can be harsh. Experience triumphant victories and crushing failures. As you progress you find there are bigger powers at play and that your adventures have found you uniquely equipped to take them on.

Catapult for Hire is designed in the spirit of big adventure a with a Nintendo 64 era inspired style and features a full campaign with an insane amount of variety. Compete in the colosseum to gain renown (like exp). Explore sprawling catacombs, play catapult-golf or go fishing to find rare ingredients for crafting.

Your time is important so there is no throwaway story here. The gameplay drives the story and the story drives the gameplay. Written with snarky shakespearean prose, every word will be agonized over to keep the story concise, entertaining and utterly pithy.

Hey! Thanks for reaching out. I need to put up a blog post... I'm working on something that *may* be related. ;) For a number of reasons the game as it exists now won't be able to happen until I'm in a better position to be able to work on it. Currently working on moving in a couple of weeks but hope to be able to put more time in after that.

hey, @loudplay, could you give us a brief update on the game? like, it's still gonna be released, right? (I know games take forever for a variety of reasons, just wondering if it's still happening or not)
