    Hey :)

    It's been a while, but the game is still progressing well. I'm back from Tokyo Game Show where I introduced the game during 4 days, and I'm actually finishing the second act of the game (it will have 3 acts).

    I wrote an article about the trip :
    - English: https://madewith.unity.com/stories/tako-at-the-tokyo-game-show-from-dream-to-reality
    Or : http://www.indiedb.com/games/tasuke...-at-the-tokyo-game-show-from-dream-to-reality
    - Français : http://www.gamesidestory.com/2016/10/08/devside-tako-au-tokyo-game-show-du-reve-a-la-realite/

    Here are some new screnshots. Have a nice day :)

    Hey :)

    It's been a while, the game is progressing well and I hope I'll have time to write a big news to announce you a lot of things by the end of the year.

    Here is a video about my trip in Japan for Tokyo Game Show 2016:

    Hello :)

    I wrote a news on IndieDB for Christmas.
    It's also the time for me to announce big decision. I decided to leave my job at Persistant Studio on January to start working full time on Tako. It also means that I'll leave Paris to return to my hometown to save the more money as possible for the release and to prepare what's next. It's a big change in my life, a bit scary, but I feel that it's the right time to do it, focus all my energy on Tako to make it the best game as possible.

    I can't tell you now, but some great news are coming up for the new year. Thank you all for you support and for making 2016 that great.

    Hey :)

    As this month was my last as a Parisian, I tried to see friends and visit the city rather than work on the game in Januray, but it's still progressing.

    I'll leave my job at the end of the week, then I'll be full time on the game :)

    To say goodbye to Paris, I met a french street artist known for displaying octopuses, GZUP (https://www.gzup.fr/in-the-streets/, and we did a little collaboration, GZUP X Tako. You can know find some of my sprites in the streets :)

    Hey :) Thanks Chingwa!

    Sorry for almost not posting here anymore. This year have been quite a rollercoaster, I quitted my job to become a fulltime indie dev, signed with Nicalis to publish the game on Switch, and travel to great indie events like PAX West and BitSummit.

    I speak about all the highlights of the year here:
    http://www.indiedb.com/games/tasuke...tako/news/save-me-mr-tako-2017-christmas-news

    Hope you all had a good year, and I can't wait for all of you to play Tako in 2018!
