Ultimate Chicken Horse

Yesterday, Clever Endeavour Games shared the latest development update for Ultimate Chicken Horse on their official blog. They explained that right now, the game is functional on all platforms, but that it’s still missing some things. They’re currently working on player displays, links to accounts, and waiting on update for third-party software.

After that, they will need to send the game to a company for pre-certification testing, to make sure it then passes lotcheck on the first try (though most games end up taking a few tries).

The team is also on new content, which will be revealed when the release date for the game itself is announced. Unfortunately, it’s too early for that: the team doesn’t want to make promise and break it, or go into crunch time to keep up with an unnecessary deadline. In other words: the release date will only be revealed when the game is ready!

Ultimate Chicken Horse (Switch – eShop) will be released later this year in Europe and North America.

Runner3

Yesterday, Choice Provisions postd the latest devblog post for Runner3. Unfortunately, this one isn’t pretty meaty, and only consists of a short teaser. We already know about two of the worlds in the game: Foodland and Spookyland, and the teaser happens to be about a third world.

Here’s the picture they shared:

Any idea what this third world is called?
