PAX East and Dev Update!


We're back from PAX East 2019

And have been for a little while now :)

For those who don’t know, the folks at Penny Arcade were gracious enough to select Norman's Night In as PAX East 2019 Indie Showcase Winners. We were lucky enough to be 1 of 4 awesome indie games chosen to showcase, and saying that still feels weird!

The 2 of us have been developing Norman's Night In for more than 3 years, and watching people (700+ in 4 days!!) play, enjoy, laugh, and share the thing we've worked so hard to make is flippin’ magical.


With PAX East complete and our sleep schedules wrangled back to normalcy, we're excited to be heads-down on finishing Norman's Night In. 


Over the last month, we've extended our playable platforms and now have NNI running smoothly on PC, Android, and iOS! We also added fancy new controller support, which might be my favorite update this month. We've also been adding final art throughout the game including brand new levels that we'll be BETA testing in the near future. 

We're very happy with how development is going! Things are coming together, Norman's Night In is starting to look shiny thanks to the vigorous polish we're applying, and people are being nice to us on the internet. Onwards to profit so we can keep doing this awesome thing we're passionate about (and finally feed our emaciated bodies)!


I'd like to briefly thank everyone who stopped by our booth at PAX East. Your support is very-much appreciated :) We'd also like to thank PAX East and everyone involved in the Indie Showcase--great games and great people all around.


Don't forget to Wishlist NNI if you haven't already. (Oh hey! I just realized I can make this fancy wishlist widget)
