Brave New Worlds

-Frequently Asked Questions-
Q: What happened to your previous project: alloutofgum.com?
A: Lawsuits take time, and are often a long, drawn-out process. Meanwhile, we wanted to be productive -- our creative team couldn’t wait around for the issue to be resolved. Ultimately, we saw it as the opportunity to create our own intellectual property, and Bombshell was born. So far, it’s been a blast.
It’s impossible to say what will happen in regards to our previous project. It might return, it might not. We want to make great games without sacrificing our integrity, and Bombshell allows us to do that beautifully.
Q: Why an Action RPG?
A: We are big fans of action RPGs, and we love exploring new territory. It’s a genre that allows us to blend intense storytelling action with player freedom and expression. We believe we can add something new to the genre based on our experiences as a studio. Working with a new genre and a fresh pair of eyes allows us to view things from a new perspective (another pun!).
Q: Will you release modding tools?
A: Of course. We’ve all been part of a dedicated fan community at one point or another. We know what it’s like to want to create content. We believe in our community, and we never underestimate their ability to create new stuff, which is key to the success of any game. We are big supporters of modding tools and we strive to release them for every game we make.
Q: Will there be more Bombshell games in the future?
A: Bombshell is a brand new franchise which we are extremely excited about. We have great long-term goals and ambitions for Bombshell and we’ve created an expansive universe with that in mind. Expect to hear from us in the future.
Q: When is the game released?
A: When it’s done… just kidding! (No, but seriously -- when it’s done!) Bombshell is scheduled “to be done” for release in Q1 2015.
