Grave Danger 1.0.2: A Speed Runner’s Dream Come True

Happy New Years all you Grave Danger endeavorers!

I hope you’ve had a chance to check out Grave Danger on Steam, through videos, or at least our demo! We’ve had a great time seeing the positive reactions to the quirkiness and challenge of the game. It’s also been great seeing everyone play the game in order to learn how to make it even better!

One thing I can always tell somebody for certain about Grave Danger: it’s hard. Grave Danger must be mastered, and replayed to truly become the best. Speed running is totally a thing, as the game challenges you to get the fastest, most death-free run possible for each level! I thought it would be a good idea to continue to build on these ideas. So today, I reveal...

Grave Danger 1.0.2!

 

NEW FEATURE: Wanted: Dead AND Alive Posters. Collect all of the posters in each level for completion bonus!

 

NEW ACHIEVEMENT “100% Innocent” : Collect all of the Wanted: Dead AND Alive posters.

 

We’ve strewn wanted posters throughout the world of Grave Danger. Now, you mustn’t just speed run a level to get the S+ ranking, now you can challenge yourself to make sure that Dante, Elliot, and Malice are 100% innocent!

Here are a few other changes that have been made as well:

  • Renamed Boss “Grimm”’s name to Boss “Francis”, clearing up the story and distinction between Malice the grim reaper and the antagonist.
  • Malice's text box portrait now features his scythe!
  • Add better user feedback to ropes and chains that trigger events in levels.
  • Fix locations in multiple levels where characters or ghosts can get stuck.
  • Many UI and font size changes.

Thanks for being part of this awesome game!

Grave Danger now LIVE on Kickstarter!

Grave Danger, a 2D side-scrolling platformer that will be available on PC, Mac, Linux, Xbox One, PS4, and Wii U, is now live on Kickstarter. Grave Danger is an inspired love letter to gamers that promises to bring quirky team-based puzzles similar to greats like the Lost Vikings to computers and consoles. Grave Danger’s Kickstarter allows players to invest in the game by preordering their PC or console copy, and get limited edition backer-reserved merchandise.

Support Grave Danger on Kickstarter

Grave Danger is slated for release on PC, Mac and Linux this Halloween, 10/31/16, and early next year on Xbox One, PS4, and Wii U. The game will feature single player and cooperative play, where players can switch between three unique heroes to solve puzzles and fight hordes of monsters. The Kickstarter features stretch goals to increase the scope of the game’s development, including more bosses, worlds, characters, and online play. Rewards available to backers are early bird prices, t-shirts, stainless steel emblems with unique character artwork, and a chance to put a tombstone with the player’s name on it within the game.

Grave Danger is being developed by independent game studio JB Gaming based out of Omaha, NE. JB Gaming was formed in Q4 2014 and developed mobile games in 2015, and is now focusing on developing high quality PC and console games.

Grave Danger Timeline

Greetings indie gamer world!

I'm here to answer some questions about Grave Danger!

 

I'm often asked when and where Grave Danger is coming out and what to look out for. Well, here is our currently perceived timeline:

 

 

Grave Danger Steam Greenlight - July 18th, 2016

On July 18th the Grave Danger Steam Greenlight page will go live. Here we hope to garner the Steam community's interest and eyeballs. The materials for the Greenlight page are currently being developed. We'll be listening to the feedback the Steam community gives us on the Greenlight page, and tapping into it as much as possible.

 

 

Grave Danger Kickstarter - July 18th, 2016

At the same time, we'll be launching the Grave Danger 30-day Kickstarter. We're preparing our Kickstarter page and materials right now! This will be the first place for anyone interested to invest in Grave Danger and contribute to it's creation. Confirmed items for this Kickstarter include:

  • Early Bird Digital Copy of Grave Danger (PC, Mac, Linux)
  • Digital Copy of Grave Danger (PC, Mac, Linux)
  • Digital Copy of Grave Danger Soundtrack (MP3)
  • Digital Copy of Grave Danger on Console of your choice (PS4, WiiU, Xbox One)
  • Limited edition Grave Danger T-Shirt

Limited Edition Grave Danger T-Shirt Fulfillment - September 16th, 2016

This is likely to be our first Kickstarter product fulfillment. After the Kickstarter finishes, we'll send out a survey to those backers who selected to get a limited edition T-Shirt, confirming shipping addresses. In August, we'll print the Grave Danger T-Shirts, confirm their quality, and start sending out the packages of indie game swag.

 

Halloween Grave Danger PC / Mac / Linux Release - October 31st, 2016

Grave Danger will launch on Steam and at least one other desktop gaming marketplaces. This will be our main Kickstarter backer fulfillment. As we launch the game for desktop gaming markets, we'll send out keys to our backers who selected tiers with digital copies.

Itch.io is largely where I imagine Grave Danger would end up. Do you agree with this? What other marketplace would you like to purchase Grave Danger on? GoG.com?

 

Grave Danger Console Release - January 16th, 2017

This early 2017 date is our estimated release date for Grave Danger for digital download on console marketplaces for Xbox One, Wii U, and PS4.

So what is your feedback? Have any advice for us as we launch our first Steam Greenlight and Kickstarter? What kind of products would you like to see on the Kickstarter? What desktop gaming platform besides Steam should we release Grave Danger on?

Until next time!
