0 comments by Psyshik on May 20th, 2015

Skara, among 77 titles nominated for awards at this year's Casual Connect in Singapore, won the Best Game Design Award.

The prize is judged by a wide group of gaming professionals from companies such as Unity, Ubisoft, Powerup Digital, Pokkt, and Twitch.

"I'm so thrilled to be given this recognition for our hard work," said Pablo Rodriguez, Skara's creative director. "And our proper Alpha build hasn't even been released yet!"

The Alpha release is currently scheduled for May 28, 2015.

*EDIT 1: The Alpha release has been delayed to fix some major issues. Expect an update soon.

**EDIT 2: Still working on it. Estimated time of release now early next week (June 1).

I absolutely love the look and feel of this game. It's outrageous to think that a game of this quality is an indie title. Well deserving of your award. Congratulations!

Thank you for your feedback. The magic debate has been a hot one both in the studio and with the community. I would love to hear more from you about your own opinion on magic in games and why you didn't expect to see anything like that in Skara.

Our approach has crystalized around the idea of having some skill based magic. If you look into the history of magic, you find that it is a way of describing the impact of the indescribable. What is magic for some is science for others... We will try and take advantage of that vision!

Stills are looking amazing. Hmm some names... ugh I cannot get basic cheesy names out of my head like "slasher", "blade whisperer"

slasher is a great reference! Cheesy is fine, in fact cheesy makes us laugh which is partly the point of good bot names! Thanks for the submissions :)
