We’re really chuffed that approaching 50,000 people have now played The 39 Steps! In a world where unusual titles from smaller developers are often lost in the shadows of the giants, it’s great that we managed to capture an audience and generate an overwhelmingly positive response to our notion of a ‘digital adaptation’. To everyone who purchased a copy – thank you! And for those who are yet to try The 39 Steps, we urge you to do so and let us know what you think.
For our experimental efforts in creating The 39 Steps, we – and our creative lead Simon Meek – managed to get a mention in The List’s ‘Hot 100’, placing us at number 33 (the only games developer in the list outside of Rockstar in Scotland, which takes the no.1 spot). Adding this accolade to our being a finalist for a Develop Award earlier this year and the recent -secret(ish)- news that The 39 Steps has been member-voted into the BAFTA Games Judging Selection for 2014 (fingers crossed!), we’re very happy bunnies.
With all that said, we are also sad to be saying a farewell to Simon Meek, who is leaving The Story Mechanics to set up The Secret Experiment. We urge you to follow Simon and his latest venture and we’re sure some very exciting stuff will be coming out of it in the near future.
