Some news from our dev friends

As you may know, we share our co-working space with our friends Adrien and Maxime from Studio Black Flag and Loïc a.k.a Ukioq.

Adrien and Maxime are still working on their upcoming game Orphan Age which is currently in alpha. It is a dystopian life sim game where you play not as the soldiers of war, but as the children left behind.

There is not a release date yet, but they are planning to release the game in Early Access.

As for Loïc, he’s still working on his first commercial video game, Purple Noise Echo. This is a tactical game with a dark neon ambiance in which you play Node, an amnesiac entity waking up in an unknown place made of hexagonal tiles.

The game is currently in Early Access, but all the features are in the game, and the lights and post-effects are much better!

For more info, please take a look at their websites:
