Tribute Games and Wizorb websites are now online (thank you Mat for the help!). Check them out! Also, Wizorb is scheduled to be released on September 29th (which is next Thursday) on Xbox Live Indie Games. In the meantime, here’s an awesome illustration drawn by Michael Brennan. We used it for the Wizorb website. More news about the PC version soon.
Jean-François Major, Justin Cyr and I have been working together for several years and we also developed Wizorb together during the past 6 months. So, we decided to join forces and form our own video game company. Justin is an awesome pixel artist, animator and aspiring sound designer and Jean-François is our mastermind programmer.
We chose the name Tribute Games because when we make games, we want to pay tribute to all the cool games from our childhood. We’re passionate indies aiming at making entertaining games with a focus on pixel art and classic game design (sometimes with a modern twist).
Here’s the animated version of our logo:
The cool jingle accompanying the logo was created by Geoffrey Roy.
Our first game, Wizorb is coming to Xbox Live Indie Games in the upcoming month (the PC version will follow). Wizorb is actually going through the review process before being released on XBLIG. We don’t have a precise release date yet but it’ll materialize in the next few weeks.
I hope you’ll enjoy our games!
