Foundation Wins a MIGA Award!

Earlier this month we attended our first public Exposition at the Montreal Expo Gaming Arcade.  It was fantastic to see so many people come out to join us at MEGA!

We had a superb time making new friends and showing off Foundation. To top it all off we won our very first award!

There was some stiff competition for the MIGA awards with some fantastic Independent Studios creating some truly incredible games. To our genuine surprise and excitement we walked away with the award for Best Sound Design!!

Thanks so much to Jonathan Grover of The Grove for doing such an amazing job with the sound design. The whole team are so proud of this achievement and the warm fuzzy feeling we get for the recognition from MIGA, which you can probably see in our faces below!


What We Are Working On

As you may know Foundation will be moving to Steam Early Access in Q1 2019. We have a lot planned and a busy time ahead of us preparing for the Early Access release. Here are a few things we are currently working on:

  • Environment Rehaul – We are creating lush environments for your villages to nestle in.
  • UI Improvement – We are working hard on improving the menu system and overall look to the user interface, helping accessibility as well as looking great!
  • Particle System – A new particle system is under development that will create even more atmosphere to your gorgeous cities.
  • Steam Achievements
  • And of course more content for the Early Access release!

We Welcome a New Team Member

We are excited to announce a new member of the Polymorph Games Team! Loup-Gabriel has joined us as our FX Artist!

He has already started work on Particle FX and visual improvements, using the in-house Particle System. With the help of Loup-Gabriel, Foundation will take on new levels of atmospheric environments!


Pax South 2019

 

We are taking Foundation to Texas!

Phil, Léo, Anne-Marie and Ash are taking Foundation on the road again.

On January 18-20 2019, you can meet the team and play the game at the Foundation booth in San Antonio, TX.


Best regards,
Your dedicated Polymorph Games Team
