Hi everyone,

As I’m sure you can understand, 2020 has thrown a wrench into our best-laid game dev plans. While we feel fortunate to have already been working remotely, the challenges of this year affected our work routines, event & release plans, and overall productivity in significant ways. Many of us are juggling childcare at home alongside our work, and handling many other personal and professional difficulties. Plus, it’s important to us that we don’t crunch just to meet a deadline, or rush the game out and sacrifice quality.

All of this means that although we’re continuing to make great progress on the game, we decided to target a new release date for We Are The Caretakers. We’re expecting that to be in the first half of 2021, and we’ll share a more exact timeline once we’re ready to commit to one. …

Hello! It’s been awhile since we gave an update on We Are The Caretakers. Much of the team was extra busy preparing for various industry events and working hard on features for our IGF submission earlier this month.

I’m Scott Brodie, Founder & Creative Director at Heart Shaped Games. Our team recently returned from running its first PAX East booth, and since we benefited from the advice of other indies in our preparation, I thought I’d share our experience too. …
