Greetings peeps! I'm here to let you know that I have begun to stream development of TOO on Twitch!
If you're curious to see what I do feel free to come hang out! I also play games and am always up for chatting about whatever.
Hope to see you there!

Hello my friends!
It has been quite some time since the last message left the Island, and for that I apologize. We've been busy building a lot of fun stuff here!
Over the past few months I have completely re-animated our little Bran, completed the first dungeon, overhauled the UI and menus, added controller support, added enemy telegraphs, added additional enemy types... and probably more stuff that I can't remember!
So, Piko and I were successfully funded through Kickstarter! Weeee!! Thank you so much to all the backers who made that possible!
As a thank you, I am going to be sending out a VERY EARLY alpha demo so our backers can get a taste of The Ovate Order, and see how things are/will be changing during development. The demo will be sent out October 5th. Until then you know I'll be crushing bugs and trying to make things smooth for my unsuspecting testers. :D
Okay, adios strangers!

Thank you for meeting me here. I'm sure you're wondering what this is all about. Well, let me tell you...
Piko has sent me back to school so I can improve my brain skills. If I had to guess I would say I have gained 2 intelligence points so far. It will be some time before I can summon Exodia, that's for sure.
I've been doing some drawing recently, as you can see with the picture above. I've been trying to work on my digital painting skills. I have to give props to Draw With Jazza on YouTube for the videos, they have definitely helped me out a bunch. I've been thinking about picking up a new tablet; I'm thinking the Wacom Intuos Pro Medium.
Anywhoooo, I've been making some pretty good progress with The Ovate Order. Two new enemy types and a couple new NPCs down, only a hundred left! :D
Check back for some cool news. Or maybe you won't have to, because it will probably be on Twitter and Facebook first.

Happy New Year! Uhh, what? Am I late or something?
The past couple of months have been wild on the island. Piko seems to be losing his mind. I found him talking to a fish that washed up on the shore the other day. He's been calling it Jabu... I think they're friends now. I don't have the heart to tell him Jabu is dead. Maybe it's better this way.
In other news, if you hadn't guessed already by the new pic... Piko Island is coming to San Francisco! Yup, we're catching a ride with good 'ol Nimbus and coming out for GDC 2017. If you'll be there, or in the area, give us a shout and we can eat pizza together.
Well folks, until the next late holiday greeting!
Happy Island Days!

Greetings and welcome to the new website! It's kind of a mess right now so please do be careful where you step. I have tons of news I would like to share about The Ovate Order and all things Piko, but time is of the essence as they say, and I'm late... late.... for an important date? Maybe.
For now, rest assured that development is rolling along as smooth as a wagon wheel.
