Amazing time at Montreal Comiccon '14!

It has been a tremendous weekend at Montreal Comiccon!  It was our first showcase of the game on such a large scale and the public reaction was simply amazing.  Feedback from our playable demo really boosted our confidence in Highlands game mechanics and visual direction.  Most importantly, it has been an incredible opportunity to chat with a lot of gamers, meet colleagues and have fun!  A quick thanks to for helping with the setup and for promoting indie game dev locally.

Here are some pictures:

Busy Week!

Quite a busy week at the studio!

Our beta 4 build is fresh out of the oven for private testing with lots of improvements and new stuff!  We invite those who already have beta keys to give us feedback (the game link has been updated to the new version at

We are also giving out some more keys so feel free to contact us at and try it out!

New features:
 - More intuitive UI: no more text on screen!
 - A brand new map to test!  This map contains advanced combat scenarios and also resources management (food and leadership).
 - When a character loses strength (hit points) in combat, he is no longer healed automatically.  A character can thus have a strength of 14/17, that will slowly replenish up to 17 at a rate of 1 point per turn.

The later system really adds a cool dynamic to combats and will be prone to evolve in the next versions.
