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!
If you have any fan art to share, we'd love to see it! Just Tweet us @RipstoneGames or share it with us on Facebook or Instagram :-)

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.
