Historea: Seysha’s Revolution delayed

Hey everyone, After some time of silence, I should let you know what's up with Historea. As you might remember, I initially said that the game would be released in the fall of this year. That won't happen. I have been busy freelancing and teaching game design, which unfortunately has delayed development on Historea. But rest assured - it is still very much my ambition to release the game and to do so in a state that will make you satisfied. Right now, I'm aiming for launch by summer 2...

A Year of Winter – Analyzing the release of a tiny indie game

On May 5th 2016, I released point-and-click game Midvinter on Steam and a few other platforms. One year later, I want to write down what I learned. In 2015, I was working as a Senior QA Manager at a game company in Stockholm.

Name change: Shantee’s Choices is now called Historea: Seysha’s Revolution!

BIG NEWS! The game we're working on will from now on be called "Historea: Seysha's Revolution"! There are two reasons for this name change. First off, the old name was too close to a couple of other trademarks to be really comfortable. Also, if people would like the game, it's easier to build a series of future titles based on the name Historea. Don't forget to sign up for the Beta: www.historea.com!

It has been incredibly useful, and I would like to extend a huge thanks to STING for giving me the chance to participate!

Midvinter

In this cozy little point-and-click fairy-tale, you are a gnome on an abandoned farm. When you realize that humans have come to live there once more, you find yourself useful again - but also that you might have to work harder than ever to keep them safe from the dark creatures that lurk out in the forest. You might even have to call on some of the fair folks for help. Their aid, however, does not come without a price...
