Hi everyone! We got approval from kickstarter so we’re making the Cosmic Star Heroine kickstarter go live tomorrow morning at around 9 am!

We’re really excited! We’ve been working on preparing this kickstarter for the past few months and can’t wait to show it off! If you like what you see and want to see us continue to improve with each game, please donate! $10 will get you a copy of the game on the format of your choice – PSN (PS4/Vita), Steam (PC/Mac), or DRM-Free PC/Mac – and there are plenty of other fun rewards to be had at the various levels. And just as important as your own support is to help spread the word. Tell your friends who might be interested, post the news on forums, mention the game on Facebook, Twitter, and the like, and more! The more people find out about the game, the more money we raise, the more freedom we’ll have in developing our best game yet!

And once again, thank you for all of your support over the years! We couldn’t have done this without you! Let’s make Cosmic Star Heroine our best game yet!

Hi, everyone! Robert here.

PAX Prime is coming up at the end of the month & Zeboyd Games will be there… but not as exhibitors. Yes, this is the first time in quite a while that we’ll be at a PAX as regular attendees and not working a booth or giving a presentation at a panel. Should be a nice change of pace from the “Work like crazy for several days and then collapse in a fit of exhaustion and illness” that has been our typical PAX experience.

I’ll be at PAX on Friday & Saturday and Bill will be there for the entire 4-days. Feel free to say hi if you spot us. And if you’re a member of the media and want to meet up with us sometime on Saturday to talk about our games or Cosmic Star Heroine, send us an email and we’ll try to arrange something.

On a completely different note, here’s a great interview over at Edge on the Making of Final Fantasy VI. Really wish it was longer than it was, but I’ll take what I can get.
