What are the chances of seeing the game released on consoles, maybe even under a program such as the Xbox Creators Collection?

Developer

Hi Jack, Kaleb here, I'm the lead developer for Scythe Dev Team.

We were completely unaware that the reception of this game would be so high, so unfortunately we haven't planned for anything like that.

But, we have received multiple requests for this game to release on consoles such as Xbox, Nintendo, PS and others. The good news in, we're currently making a new game that is a continuation of the NorthBury Grove story, and we'll have a full fledged release this time around. So with that stuff in mind, we're looking to pack the next game full of as many features as possible, including multi-platform releases, VR features and more.

Follow us on Twitter for the latest info, and thank you for your suggestions, we appreciate the feedback.

That’s great news! I’m happy the game is getting the attention it deserves. Will the next game include all the style that makes Northbury Grove so unique? I hear the next game takes place in a new decade. It’d be a shame to lose the 80’s vibe.

Hi JackLantern,

Really, there is no set vibe or decade the games (and universe) are intended to be tied to. Think about Blade Runner...we don't tie that universe to a particular decade, right? Other than "the future" of 2019 the film depicts. It was made in the '80s, but it was a depiction of a potential 2019. (We do attach THE FILM to the decade of the '80s, of course.)

We like to think the same of our games. It's the Scythe Saga Universe, so the '80s charm will always be there. This is because '70s and '80s horror and sci-fi is our primary influence in writing the stories. It's also why the VHS tapes and cell-phone coexist. (TBH, though, it was supposed to be implied VHS tapes were outdated. They were scattered about a long-abandoned factory, after all. The quip about them being "all the rage" was meant to read sarcastic.)

Semantics aside, the upcoming game will be set the SAME NIGHT of the first game. As we get closer to wrapping the game up we'll share more info, but it takes place just a few short miles away, and was alluded to in the first game. Stay tuned! And thanks for all the feedback, we appreciate your enthusiasm (and the rest of the communities enthusiasm as well!)

Cheers,
Jon
