We’ve got new promotion art! Mystery, adventure and of course DRAMA!


Didn’t get the chance to get Herald on Steam sale last weekend?
We’re running another sale this weekend, this time on GOG!
As of today, we also have a FREE DEMO!

Herald Books I and II by Wispfire is now out! We had a chance to play through Book I on stream, and it was great. As expected from our run through the demo version, Herald is pretty damn great. It doesn’t shy away from issues of race or Imperialism in the games setting.

Like we said the game does not shy away from these issues. Also, POC characters are voiced by POC actors! Vivek Bhurtun voices your protagonist, Devan Ludlow. We had him and lead writer, Roy van der Schilden on Fresh Out of Tokens to talk about the voice acting and writing the game before release.

Vivek also wrote about his experience voicing Devan for Gamasutra!

Listen to to the episode

You can buy Herald ($9.99) on Steam, GOG or direct from Wispfire which gives them the biggest profit!

Thanks so much again for hosting us and your continued support! We’re thrilled that you liked the game after playing the demo earlier! 

Hey everyone!

To prepare you for the upcoming release of Herald, we made a special interactive video to illustrate what kind of choices you’ll be making.

In this interactive vignette you are presented with a conflict set aboard the Herald, and at the end you can vote to choose how our main character, Devan Rensburg, responds to the conflict.

Voting happens here and ends on Monday, 11 AM GMT!

Next Thursday we will release a new vignette which will be a direct continuation of the choice with the most votes in total! 

Reblogs would be appreciated!

“Gun’s been stolen from the weapons cache, and you gonna be helpin’ me findin’ it.”

We’ve teamed up with the amazing Liea to make this kick-ass art piece for Herald! We’ll be showcasing it ten times this size at First Look, this weekend in Utrecht, The Netherlands. If you’d like to receive two free Sunday tickets for First Look (so you can play Herald and chat with the devs!), reblog this post! We’ll be picking out the winner next day!

If possible, please mention that you live in The Netherlands or the neighboring areas so we don’t end up giving the tickets to someone from Australia. 😉

Also, for those who weren’t able to pledge during our kickstarter, you can now pre-order!

In less than 2 days, 71 backers managed to back 2000 euros! That means we’re already more than 10% funded. Thank you so much! You people are awesome!
