For those of you waiting for Season 5 of GALAK-Z, hang in there—it’s almost here! We’re terribly sorry for the delay. We lost a key engineer recently, and it has delayed us a bit, but we think you’re gonna love what we’ve made! We’ll update you soon! Join our newsletter and get notified right away.
The DLC is available on Steam and PS4 currently (including Europe). We are currently working on some bug fixes related to it. See our Bug Board to see what we’re working on.
Our sincere apologies for taking longer than expected—the good news is we’ve had lots of time to really listen to feedback and focus on an addition that really complements the main game in new ways that we think our fans will super appreciate and will give the game long legs into the foreseeable future.
Currently, we are not looking for interns, but if we do at some point, we will update this page and send out a call for people to get in touch through our newsletter, so if you are interested, sign up here.
Currently, we are looking for senior engineers, but we are always willing to accept resumes for other areas of work. We look for senior level people with a good deal of experience, so if that is you and you are interested in working at a high-level games company in Japan, send us your resume and portfolio at email@example.com.
Skulls of the Shogun
Hello Skulls fans. We cannot tell you how much we appreciate that there is still so much love for this awesome game. We are proud of what we made and that so many of you have been able to enjoy it. We sadly have to share some news about the reality of Skulls on iOS.
Technical changes on the operating system level have cascaded into needing to update several systems as well as the format of the content in the game. There is data encryption happening outside of our control that is rewriting our data. Dependent on multiple other pieces of middleware that have either changed or are no longer supported, we have sadly hit a brick wall. We have invested a great deal of time and money and pulled in experts in hopes to solve these issues, but we are still at a point where there is no promised solution in sight. It is in acknowledgement of these facts that we regret to say that the iOS version is not updatable. If new information comes to light or an expert in the field can volunteer their time to attempt to find a solution, we will update the community of any potential progress. While this doesn’t help those of us with iOS devices, Skulls is still very much playable on many other platforms.
It is with a heavy heart and a strong mind that we have pulled Skulls of the Shogun from the iOS App Store until the updated version is complete. We’ll spare you the technical details, but it’s continuing to be a real thorny mess in trying to get it running smoothly with the recent changes to iOS. We’ll be sure to keep you all appraised of the situation and will let you know when the updated version is available and back up on the App Store.
