New forum up and running
Well, it just took… forever.. but now the new forum software is up and running. This means we finally have a platform again, to discuss the game, exchange ideas and gather feedback.
Things should be much more stable, more spam free and a lot prettier than last time. As you might notice the forum is running on the MetalPop server with a Rick Future sub forum. This means we will eventually add sub forums for our other games.
As things move on we might also restructure the Rick Future forum itself. Right now it is pretty empty but as things move along we might to split the feedback, idea and general discussion into individual sub forums to keep things organized. Let’s see how things go
Our German community should also be happy. We added a special forum just for you guys to discuss in German. But please feel free to also head over to the international part of the forum and help out anybody with their questions over there.
So, waste not time, check out the new forum here and let us know what you think!

MetalPop 2-Year Anniversary! (and a website update)
This week we had our two-year anniversary! We have been surviving as an independent studio for two years now! In June 2013 we exchanged the security of a monthly paycheck for the roller coaster-ride life as independent developers.
Our combined savings back then would have only lasted for six months. We had absolutely zero contract work lined up.
And now, two years later we are still here and doing pretty good.
And to celebrate the occasion not only our but also the Rick Future Game website received a complete makeover! New design, new screenshots, new content and new everything! We hope you like the new look!
There is a bit more work to do though and some new things like the new forum are not up and running yet. You can expect to see some more updates to the site in the next weeks.
Once you are done admiring the improvements to our website here head over to the Rick Future site and see all the new shiny stuff there!
