Father's Day back in simpler times for TY and his family.

You beauties! Today marks one year since the TY the Tasmanian Tiger HD Kickstarter campaign was funded. Give yourselves a pat on the back for your support! We couldn't have brought these remasters to market without you. You've helped heaps of TY fans around the world and frankly, us too! Thank you for your support, especially those who had never backed a Kickstarter before, you Legends!

TY Flamerang Statuettes

Hey Fluffy tier backers! The statuettes are completed and are shipping out via DHL shortly! Ownage, the creators, is awaiting the special packing and shipping materials. Your TY Flamerang statuettes are done!

Boss Cass tier backers, we've asked Ownage to hold on to your TY Flamerang statuettes until your YOU! statuettes are done, and to ship them out together.  The 3D models are complete on those and they are being 3D printed. 

Doomeranger Comic

Steve Stamatiadis continues to work on this latest creation, and on this latest page we can see Sly in action. All Kickstarter backers will be receiving links to download their digital copies when the comic is completed. 

What Was It Like When You Hit "Launch" On The Project?

For months we had been preparing, and hinting at the Kickstarter, and when it came time to click "Launch", we were full of nerves! In fact, we huddled together for that moment. It was thrilling, nerve-wracking, and exciting. The core team didn't sleep much that first night. We kept getting up to check in on the project launch.

How Has Putting Your Project Into The World Changed Things For You?

It's been amazing. To connect with all of you, our backers, has been a joy. To be able to run ads and get the word out has been a huge plus. To read the lovely comments about how much TY meant to players when they were children, has been wonderful.

What Are You Working On Right Now?

Of course, submitting the Xbox One version is the priority! We're also working on Monster Dash, and there are some early plots and schemes being hatched for a future project that might be of some interest to you all... Other than that, with the TY1HD project wrapping up, we're cutting the cost of the remaining extra merchandise, and planning a survey to get your thoughts and feedback on the Kickstarter.

Father's Day, Australia

Here, today is also Father's Day in Australia, and we reckon Lochlan and Lottie have a pretty awesome dad! Our love to all you dads out there reading this. Hope you all enjoy the special family portrait at the top of the post. 

Cheers!

Xbox One Version Nears Testing
about 2 months ago – Thu, Aug 06, 2020 at 03:31:56 AM

Xbox One Version Going Into Testing

The final bits and bobs for the Leaderboards and Achievements are wrapping up and it's looking like the game will go into our testing phase next week! 

We'll be doing two types of testing. One is a full gameplay test, and the other is to specifically check the game against the Xbox requirements, like system specific messages and other test case requirements Microsoft has outlined.

After that comes the submission to Microsoft for their review. We'll keep you posted!

Xbox One Achievements

Here's a sneak peak at some of the Achievements you can earn in the upcoming Xbox One version.

How fun was that having your backer and pre-order keys for PS4 before everyone else at launch?! We're aiming to do the same with the XB1 backer and pre-order keys. We'll keep you posted, and if you don't have your pre-order key yet, you can only get them here: https://ty-console.backerkit.com/hosted_preorders 

Backer Update!

We're finishing up the last details on the custom statuettes for the "Boss Cass' World Domination Plan" Kickstarter backers. Their YOU! drawings are being turned into statuettes to go along with the TY Flamerang statuettes, which are all getting painted still. Thank you again, backers!!
