It's been just over a month since we revealed our new puzzle-platformer UGC video game, Restitched to the world! To put into words how overjoyed we are at the overwhelmingly positive response would be nigh on impossible. We are so extremely grateful and thankful for every one of you who has stuck with us through our journey into game development. We are driven by the encouragement and shared passion that you all exude, and rest assured we are typing away behind the scenes to bring Restitched to your eager palms as soon as possible!
That being said, you may have been wondering what we've been up to since the reveal! For starters, we've brought on fresh talent to the team. We've also been responding to the amazing community fan art of Stuffy, and we've begun our journey into releasing new Restitched-themed merchandise for you to rep! Let's take a look...
Community Fan Art
Some of our absolutely favorite things to witness are the amazing pieces of fan art that you all create! It's no secret that you love our little hand-stitched teddy bear, and we can't say we blame you! As a way of saying thank you and shining a spotlight on the beautiful art that's been made, here are some of our favorite pieces of Stuffy fan art:
Do you have your own Restitched fan art to share with us? Tweet it to us @Trixel_Creative, email it to us via the "Contact" section, or post it in #share on our official Discord server!
New Team Members
Naturally, the next step for us was to expand our creative and technical efforts and welcome onboard new skills and talents to help Restitched become the best it can be. Building a game is one tough cookie to climb (is that the phrase?), especially when it's done as a hobby project by a team of fans and friends, so we're welcoming nine extremely talented developers to the team, bringing our total developer count to 19! We don't plan to stop there, so keep an eye our for future opportunities to get involved yourself!
The new team members that have joined the Restitched team are:
(you can hover over the photos to see a name!)
You love Stuffy, and we love stuffy too! What better way to show your love than to get your mitts on our brand-new official Restitched merchandise? We're in the process of expanding what we have to offer, but at the moment you can find merchandise featuring "Bearnana", Stuffy's Craftbook, and the game's logo.
All the money earned from merch sales goes directly into the project and Trixel Creative's costs - things like outsourcing, our website plans, game engine plugins, domain hosting, storage hosting, etc!
