ACotGK Update

Just a quick update on The Accursed Crown of the Giant King. It’s out and available; Windows, Mac, iOS. Go get it, it’s great! (Opinions may vary).

I’m working on a minor update. The biggest thing is to add Mac support on Steam. Currently it’s only on the Mac app store. Otherwise just some minor fixes and updates.

After that I’d like to work a bit on map generation and UI, but those are bigger projects. Any feedback, send it my way!

ACotGK: Release Glitch

Hi Accursed Crown of the Giant King fans!

I was hoping to release in July but I hit a bit of a glitch with my Mac build. I think I’ve got it straightened out, and now looking at mid-August once I can get everything updated and tested. Soon!

“The Accursed Crown of the Giant King” is a classic style RPG.
