08/15/2014 - Citizens of Earth Release Data Pushed to November
11:04 pm pdt
The good news is that we'll be
releasing Citizens of Earth for $14.99 on each of the five platforms it's available for. That's PlayStation 4, PlayStation
Vita, Nintendo 3DS, Wii U, and PC if you haven't been keeping count!
Citizens of Earth Hits PSN, Nintendo eShop, and Steam for $14.99 in November
In effort to have more champagne time
- whoops, I mean CAMPAIGN time! - we are pushing back the release of Citizens of Earth from October, 2014, to the coincidentally-more-suitable
election month: November!
No one likes delaying games, but hopefully the $14.99 price point for 30+ hours of classic
JRPG-inspired entertainment will assuage those pains.

08/14/2014 - Goat Simulator coming to Xbox One
9:27 pm pdt
Goat Simulator coming
to Xbox One
For release: August 13th
– 14th (TBC)
Following unveiling during the Xbox news briefing at gamescom 2014, Double Eleven
and Coffee Stain Studios are delighted to announce that gamers will soon be able to embark on the adventure that is Goat Simulator
on Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, via the ID@Xbox self-publishing program!
Double Eleven will honour the hilarious, unique and somewhat violent nature of Goat Simulator to ensure Xbox One owners
get the ultimate goat experience.
Players will be able to live the dream and cause as much destruction as an actual
goat from the comfort of their couch. Live life as a goat and wreck the world around you; add some creativity to your destruction
and you’ll rack up even more points! Goat Simulator’s charm comes in part from the bugs that were deliberately
left in. Coffee Stain Studios, the original developers, fixed the crash-bugs but left everything else to ensure a well-rounded,
realistic experience of life as a goat (with hilarious consequences).
Lee Hutchinson CEO, "We're delighted
to be working with Coffee Stain. They've created something truly enjoyable and completely disruptive; we want to bring that
to Xbox One."
Anton Westbergh CEO, "Getting on Xbox One with the help of Double Eleven is really exciting.
Everyone deserves a chance to goat around, and this is one step in the right direction!"

Monsters is one of those RPGs that's best enjoyed when you can compare your game with someone else and see how different your
experiences were," said Justin Amirkhani of Vagabond Dog. "This demo offers players the opportunity to do so by
mixing game highlights with real-world quotes from fellow players and critics alike in one absurdly meta package. We may have
gone over the top on this one."
Released in May to both critical and commercial success, Always Sometimes
Monsters tells the story of a down-and-out character on the verge of collapse after learning the love of his or her life is
set to marry someone else. Selecting from characters of different gender, race and sexual orientation players will encounter
a world that reacts uniquely to who they are as they live through common experiences and unique hardships. With time working
against them, players set out on a unique cross-country journey filled with memorable and countless choices. Each playthrough
is filled with a staggering number of diverging paths, creating a narrative tailored to the individual playing, their choices,
and their personal ethical compass.
