Aiguillon released! And stirrings in the deep! April 9th, 2013 - Ronimo
Legend tells the story of a giant cranky porcupine wandering through space. Furious at the sun for burning his eyes, he charged and killed both the light and himself.
His prickly remains now orbit the dead sun and gave home to the Kremzon, a crude and devious species that spend most of their time in bustling cabarets and smokey cafés. Aiguillon's thorny rings conceal a mythical temple, rumored to hold the power of invisibility!
Something is stirring in the deep! Out of shadow and flame steps Demon Skolldir, vanquisher of hope and bringer of doom! Standing in his path is no conjurer of cheap tricks, however! Behold, Genji the Grey shall let none pass! Which side will be victorious? Only you can help decide!
PAX East roundup and a new map: Aiguillon! April 5th, 2013 - Ronimo
PAX East '13 was absolutely fantastic! We got to meet tons of fans and managed to get lots of new players interested in the game. Three days of complete Awesomenauts mayhem!
In our booth we had 6 laptops and a three-player TV hooked up on a local network where people could try out our new upcoming map Aiguillon. This map is proving to have some awesome ambush and chase opportunities!
Everyday our booth was filled up with people having a great time! We even had lots of peeps coming back for more in our little corner of PAX based in the Indie Mega Booth!
Jesse Cox showed up to dominate a match as his favorite character Genji!
The map is now in Beta Testing and will be released soon, but if you want a sneak peak yourself, watch this Dev-match commented by FourCourtJester and SlowWolf!
