Upcoming Game ‘Crashlands’ Gets Launch Date

Upcoming Game ‘Crashlands’ Gets Launch Date

Dec 8, 2015

Yay!

Butterscotch Shenanigans has dropped a firm date for the launch of its upcoming game Crashlands: January 21st, 2016.

Why you should maybe give a damn.
Huge, openworld crafting RPG with 60+ hours of story content.
No inventory management – a crafting game with an infinite, self-managing inventory. FINALLY.
True crossplatforminess – It’s the same game on PC and Mobile, and you can move your save between the two, meaning you can pop it in your pocket for that morning commute and then come back home and bury your face in the big screen via Steam. And it plays beautifully either way. It’ll be $5 on mobile platforms and $15 on Steam.
Indie as F*** – 3 brothers taking 2 years to make the game that gets 1 of them through cancer treatment.

As noted, the game will cost $5.

If we may, we at Android Rundown wanna give a big shout-out to Sam, one-third of the development team at Butterscotch Shenanigans. We love beating games, but nothing beats beating cancer!

Butterscotch Shenanigans, creators of Quadropus Rampage, are still hard at work on the survival game Crashlands, but they’re also working on some side projects. Namely, one each week, made in 10 hours, with what they’re calling Speedcraft, then releasing the game to Google Play. Their latest release is Flop Rocket, a side-scrolling game where players try to control a rocket through a corridor, controlling its angle and thrust. It’s not easy. The game is available for free from Google Play, and those who want to watch their creative process in action can catch their Twitch channel each Monday as they create a new game before a live audience.

Butterscotch Shenanigans Announces Hopeful News for Sam Coster and a New Game: Crashlands

Jan 30, 2014

Sam Coster of Butterscotch Shenanigans was diagnosed with stage 4 lymphoma last year, and we are excited to report that Sam is currently on track to be in remission by March.

As well, he didn’t let a little thing like cancer stop him from making games with his brother Seth, but the game they were working on, Extreme Slothcycling has been shelved, as Sam explains:

“Seth. I don’t want Extreme Slothcycling to be the last game I make before I die.”

So, Sam and Seth changed pace and set out to, in Sam’s words: “make a game that meant something and that lasted. I wanted to make something big, some place I could go to escape when I was in the hospital or nauseous beyond description. Through the last four rounds of chemo and two hospitalizations Seth and I have worked to turn that desire into a reality.”

Crashlands-1

Crashlands is their new game, which they say “blends survival, crafting, creature management, strategic combat, and player expression into an endless world.” They plan on announcing more on the game over the coming weeks and months with a targeted June launch on Android. We’ll definitely have more on this game as it nears launch, and it’s good to see Sam getting healthy and making games!
