CrackerJack Games LLC announces today that their first release, UnderEarth, has been approved by the Steam Greenlight community.
"We’re thrilled to achieve this milestone for UnderEarth on Steam. After launching a Greenlight campaign in February, it’s critical validation for a storied interactive puzzle to be given the thumbs up,” stated Joseph Wilhems, President and Lead Designer of CrackerJack Games.
“We wanted to create a game where the player is king. Challenges will be overcome by the player's ability to solve them. The story will be pieced together by the player interpreting the presented materials. The successes will belong to the player, not due to our guidance,” said Wilhems.
A playable alpha version of UnderEarth is in the works, and plans to make it available for public consumption are in place. CrackerJack states however, that this will not be an ‘Early Access’ title, and that this alpha version will release under a controlled environment to gain player feedback. The demo will give players a chance to jump into the world of UnderEarth and provide the design team valuable feedback on what features they like and dislike.
CrackerJack’s release date for UnderEarth will be formally announced in the near future.
