[Development Blog #3] The Mind of Marlo – Steam Release

Hello and welcome to a brand new instalment of the Development Blog. This week our guests include the Steam release of The Mind of Marlo, the insightful Poffle’s Guides, Rodo Friday’s and introducing a new feature called Sexy Future/Ugly Past!*

*I don’t know what this feature is yet. I like to come up with a snappy title first then try to shoehorn an idea in later. If the title is still in this intro then I must have come up with something…


The Mind of Marlo – Steam Release

MoM1

I don’t mind cats, generally. I just don’t want to be one.

We released a version of The Mind of Marlo on itch.io in July. We are now nearing completion of the Steam version which has an extended story, remastered audio, tons of visual tweaks including a new interface, new music and voice overs, achievements, trading cards and much, much more!*

*Not that much more.

If you purchased a copy from itch.io we will mail you a Steam Code upon release. Thank you for your support kind itch.io gamers!

The Steam page will be up and running in a few weeks where you can stare longingly at screen shots and watch the sensational and yet to be created trailer.

Poffle’s Guides

Poffle

Poffle has been writing a series of guides for the budding game developers out there. You can find tips for game creation around a full time job, working with team members from around the world and what to do if you don’t actually have any game development skills at all.

Rodo Friday’s

BPMN

If you found Poffle’s Guides to be frankly rubbish then check out Rodo’s where he shares something of value about game development. He talks about our Unity Adventure Framework, which he has been building over the last few years plus future systems he would like to implement. They are pretty interesting, just don’t expect them every Friday. Getting a weekly article out of Rodo is harder than getting a decent door system out of him…

Here at Point Bleep Studios we like to know the next 12 or so games we’re going to create. We’ve just had an idea for an early 2027 release which will likely be our magnum opus. It’s a little too early to reveal any details just yet but I’ll give you a small clue, it’s going to be amazing! Think of your all time favourite game, now multiply it by 7. Yeah, it’s gonna be that good. I’ll say no more.

Here at Point Bleep Studios we also like to reflect on the last 12 or so games we’ve created. We’ve only created 8 so although we’d like to reflect we haven’t done so yet.


Just one more thing…

As soon as The Mind of Marlo releases on Steam we will return to work on Point Bleep TV. If you enjoy The Mind of Marlo then you will love Point Bleep TV, if you hate The Mind of Marlo you will still love Point Bleep TV.*

We’ve updated our Point Bleep TV page so go and check it out and see what you’re in store for. Thanks for reading and have an absolutely incredible Wednesday.

*No. You probably won’t, actually.
