Hey everyone!

In case you haven't seen the news yet, Woah Dave! is coming to 3DS, iOS, and Steam on 10/30! The PS4 and Vita versions shouldn't be too far behind!

As you can no doubt imagine, we are INCREDIBLY EXCITED! We put a lot of work into each and every version of this game, and we think that will show in the finished product.

In celebration of this momentous occasion, we urge you all to put a party hat on and scream as loud as you possibly can. It would really mean a lot to Dave.

 

Happy NASAversary!

Someone give NASA Ames a diamond, because it's their 75th anniversary.

NASA Ames, a major research station located in Mountain View, CA, recently had an open house to commemorate their momentous milestone. The facility is known for having the largest wind tunnel in the world, but also houses many other research projects ranging from exoplanet research to robotics. I was fortunate enough to be able to get a tour of their Vertical Motion Simulator, another feature on their largest-in-the-world list.

Thousands of astronauts have trained on the simulator to help give them a sense of the accelerations at play when piloting a particular craft. It's different from a centrifuge in that it can replicate six degrees of motion to match the visual display controlled by the pilot. It's sort of like a huge, multimillion-dollar arcade machine. The module connected to the simulator can also be swapped out to replicate the interface for an aircraft, Space Shuttle, or even a Lunar Lander.

There was so much to see and do that I wish I could have done it all. Keep your eyes peeled to the site, we may have some more fun space-related tours in the future.

 

Game release updates, and something a little more secretive

I don't mean to rub it in, but we have quite a few awesome projects cooking over here at Choice Provisions. Some of them you're probably aware of--Woah Dave!, Destructamundo, Tharsis, Laserlife--and others haven't been announced yet. If that sounds like an insane amount of projects for a studio as small as ours, that's because it is. We're a bunch of crazy workaholics who happen to love making video games. Our masochism is your gain!

In the immediate future, you can expect Woah Dave! to release very soon. Like, incredibly soon. I know the exact release date, but am withholding that information at the moment for strategic marketing purposes. Rest assured, however, that I'm not lying when I say "soon." I've used the word three times now, so of course I'm telling the truth.

Beyond that, a release of Destructamundo isn't too far off, either. It's all done and good to go on iOS; we're just taking a bit of time to polish up the Steam version and make it as awesome as possible. We may Polish it up as well, but that remains to be seen.

Tharsis and Laserlife are a little further off, but Tharsis isn't really that far off. This is yet another situation where I know roughly when we'll be releasing it, but am refraining from saying until the time is right. Sorry about that.

Additionally, above and beyond just release announcements, we have some pretty amazing news to share with all of you soon. That's all I can say for now.

TL;DR - Woah Dave! and Destructamundo are coming out incredibly soon. Tharsis is also coming out soon, but not as soon. We also have another announcement to make here in the near future.
