Announcing Acorn Assault

By | Announcements, Press Releases | No Comments

The squirrel revolution has begun! After years of oppression and acorn hording, the commoners have revolted. Pick up your weapon and fight for the oppressed, or fight to keep your stockpiles of nuts to yourself. Acorn assault is a turn-based match-three strategy game where you can fight against the computer or a friend in local or online battles.

Since the launch of our first game, ZomNomNom, we have been planning and working on Acorn Assault. For those that have followed us, you will remember our entry in the Ouya Create Game Jam by the same name. Since the game jam, we have been working on building our own world of characters and improving the game based on the feedback we got from the community. The game will be releasing this summer on the Ouya game console along with PC, Mac and linux! We will have more to announce about this game soon, so follow us on Twitter and Facebook for the latest news!

We Made a Game About Battling Squirrels for our First Game Jam! Play It!

By | Announcements | No Comments

In our last post I talked about our first game jam. Well, today is the last day and we finished it with a game we are proud to stamp our logo on. Acorn Assault is the result of our long nights of development. It is a turn-based match-three battle game. Think along the lines of Triple Town meets Pokemon Battles. You can choose to play against the computer or a friend locally.

Playing against the computer will get you familiar with how to play the game, but the real fun is fighting against a friend. Luckily for you, along with the Ouya version, we also made a version you can play in your browser. You can read more about the game, check out our trailer and play the game on the product page for it. So check it out. Click here to start hurling acorns at your friends!

See What Our Next Game Will Be

Back in July, we backed the Kickstarter project Ouya. Late December we received our development kit and started thinking about how we can top ZomNomNom in 2013. Luckily, Ouya has teamed up will Kill Screen to host the Create game jam starting today, January 14th, to the 23rd. That’s perfect timing if you ask us. So we are here to say that High Tale Studios will be participating in this Create game jam and will be posting updates to keep you abreast of our development.

But what does this mean for you? We will have a playable demo available for you to test and give us feedback to help shape our next game. We have been hard at work on this game, and we will be showing it off soon. In the meantime, let us know in the comments below what kind of games you would like to see from High Tale Studios!
