I squid you not

Since our last post, we’ve been busy with a number of things!

Here’s a preview of subterranean squid ‘Tentaluchus,’ our newest boss:

The next boss we’re planning to tackle is the chairman. He’s the megalomaniac who kidnaps the prince in a crazy plot to take over the kingdom. He forms the first of the three final bosses.

In January we took a break from working on bosses, bug fixes and performance improvements to revisit the story and dialogue. It was well worth it — the new script provides much better characterization of all the main characters, and will deliver a more satisfying ending. I may have gone a bit mad with the puns though…

Paige (the librarian) is a real book-pun afficionado:

Everyone in the Chucklefish office is relieved I’ve found an outlet for my puns.
