Gamescom 2015 Line Up
27th July 2015
It is hard to believe that Gamescom has come around yet again! After a successful time at Gamescom 2014, we have packed three indie game gems to take along with us this year:
Extreme Exorcism is an arena platformer where every move you make comes back to haunt you. Take on the role of Extreme Exorcist Mae Barrons and see if you’ve got what it takes to rid the haunted mansion of its ghostly presence, which so many others have failed to do before. The game is set for release on PlayStation 3 & 4, Xbox One, PC & Mac, and Wii U.
Pure Hold’em will be shown for the first time ever on Xbox One at the Ripstone booth this year. The game will be the very first Texas Hold’em Poker title to grace Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles, boasting 8 player online multiplayer and all excitement of the casino floor. More seasoned players can even try their luck on the prestigious Aces and Masters tables in the exclusive penthouse suite. The game will be coming out later this summer on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Ironcast is a steampunk mech combat game set in an alternative Victorian history, a time where refined men and women controlled gigantic walking war machines, laying waste to enemies of the British Empire. The game launched to critical acclaim on PC earlier this year where after Dreadbit Games announced that they would be bringing Ironcast to Xbox One and PlayStation®4. The PlayStation®4 version will be playable at Gamescom for the very first time.

Video of the week: Ironcast inspired pixel art
05th July 2015
We love, love, LOVE fan art here at Ripstone - nothing pleases us more than seeing fans get inspired by the games we publish and the amazing devs who create them.
This week's video of the week is a special treat from @VoidfoxTV - who has created an awesome Ironcast inspired pixel art mech. He's even documented the creation process by making a glorious time-lapse video.
Thanks for sharing @VoidfoxTV - we salute you!

Ripstone Round-up: June 2015
01st July 2015
June has been and gone in the blink of an eye and July is catching up. Maybe it’s because so many exciting things have been going on here at Ripstone HQ, or perhaps it’s just that E3 landed a little later than usual this year. Either way, it’s been a glorious month and we’re certain that July will be even more so!
E3 was an absolute treat this year. Aside from lots of meetings and talking about the incredible games and talented devs we’re working with this year - the Ripstone crew actually got to walk around the show floor and play some games. We met some wonderful people along the way too.
To top things off, Golden Ruby Game's paranormal platformer; Extreme Exorcism was featured in Nintendo's Nindies@Home program, designed to deliver E3 demos to Wii U gamers on their home consoles. Thanks to everyone who downloaded and played the Extreme Exorcism demo, we’ve had lots of amazing feedback so far.
Besides E3, we've been beavering away at Ripstone HQ, working hard towards the exciting game releases we have on the horizon. We can’t say much more than that for the time being, but we’ll be revealing much more in the coming weeks. We’ll also be announcing the winner of the Pure Hold’em competition very soon, so stay tuned for that.
Now that July has arrived, our Gamescom plans are well under way! We’ll be there next month exhibiting some awesome games, so let us know if you’re going to be there too. We’ll let you know what games we’ll be showing soon! We’ll even let you in on a few other tricks that we have up our sleeve for Gamescom 2015.
That’s all for now, we’ll be back with another update soon.
