If you keep up with our Twitter and Instagram, we have already revealed new Norb and Doris sprites. There are many more amazing characters that we can’t wait to show you.

We’re back with some updates regarding the development progress of The Tale of Doris and the Dragon - Episode 2. I am happy to say that we are very close to getting our press builds together and will go into more detail in this post. For all of you following us on Instagram and Twitter, we are forever grateful for your support and patience. We promise that you won’t need to wait too much longer!

What have we been up to?

It's that time of year again and we are busy preparing for the festival season. Last weekend, we kicked off the summer with another amazing weekend at Norwich Gaming Festival 2019. We got so much positive feedback about Doris after implementing changes based on last year's expo. We seriously recommend going if you are into your indie games - it's one of the bigger festivals for indies in the UK.

We made a short summary film about our experience at #NGF19. Check it out:

Well, I can honestly say I've never played a game as a granny with a zimmer frame who talks to yellow dragons. Weirder still, I can't put it down…

Game Development Championship Mar 12, 2017 @ 11:17pm 
Love adventure games, and your description is excellent by Greenlight standards, really shows you are a professional dev team. What's the name behind ArrogantPixel though? I'm interested to learn why you call the studio that, if there is any reason to it?

We are running the Game Development World Championship and would like to see you participate. It's good for your visibility and won't cost you a penny.

You can check it out at www.thegdwc.com .

Good luck with the development!
