Human Piñata is a shocking psychological game, born for Stencyl's Game Jam in 2016. If you want to see its development from start you can read our Game Jolt devlog here Gamejolt.com
The game tells the story of 2 infortunate street kids on a halloween night that really wish they can share time with their parents like other kids but as result of their dysfuctional families they just walk the streets exposed to danger when a kind lady " Invites " them to a party with tons of piñatas full of candies but... some of them are made of some special materials.... Uncover a twisted story with strong character develpment.
This past week we continued working on the improvements on the game based to your feedback which basically is replace almost all the environment assets and adding new ones which means we had to change the collisions on the scenes and made a few tweaks. Also we added 2 new areas which weren't part of the initial scope but we think they are necessary to give make more immersive the game. We are working on how to create the best atmosphere using lights and SFX.
We still have a few days until February 19th which is our tentative date for release but it can be slightly delayed since we are improving the game, preparing other launch stuffs and also it isn't our full time job (for example the developer works from 8 pm to 12 am on weekdays after his full time job) but we think we prefer to launch a small but solid game rather than a ok one. We may consider an early access if we feel that are just details that needs improvements rather than aesthetics that have a heavy impact on the gaming experience.
We hope you can stick with us a bit longer.
Today we saw a few awesome games that were greenlit but sadly we weren't included in that list and we are afraid it will be very unlikely that the game will be greenlit anytime soon specially after Steam Direct's announcement, so... what will we do? Well, we are going to leave the game on greenlight until we are able to refund our greenlight fee but that won't stop the game from launching so from now on we are going to focus in releasing the game on Game Jolt and Itch.io so the people that have supported us can enjoy the game ^_^ also once we have more info on Steam Direct we will analyse trying steam again, if not, we will continue on Game Jolt and itch.io until we can get our small indie game studio rolling. If in this period of time for some reason we get greenlit we will consider to launch a special Steam Version of the game.
