Anyone who’s followed CAPY over the years knows our love of cartoons. From Critter Crunch, to Clash of Heroes HD, through the animated commercials for Super Time Force, we’ve always been driven to create super-slick animation in our work. When the opportunity arose to collaborate with Cartoon Network, we jumped on it. We also hugged it really really hard!
Today we’re so excited to announce that CAPY is developing a new game with Cartoon Network based on their upcoming series OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes, an amazing new show created by Ian Jones-Quartey.
OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes is set in Lakewood Plaza, a mall for heroes, where K.O. and his kooky crew of friends are always working to outdo each other as they try to level up and thwart their evil foe Lord Boxman’s plot to destroy the plaza.
For CAPY, helping to build K.O’s world is one of the coolest things we’ve been a part of. With OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes, Ian & Toby are cramming the soul of videogames into a cartoon. CAPY is setting out to do the reverse – mash the language of cartoons into a videogame. We think it’s pretty cool, and we hope fans of both games and cartoons dig it when it releases.
23.12.16CAPY’S GAMES OF THE YEAR 2016
As 2016 closes out, we decided to have a little fun and vote on our favorite games of the year. Everyone at Capy picked their fav 3 titles, and we tallied up the votes for each game. Here’s the results:

So Capy really liked DOOM. It got 2.5x the number of votes the next highest tallied games received. We’d all like to offer our love and respect to the team at id software for bringing this franchise back in such a metal way.

We told you BELOW would be out this summer. Our team worked hard to make that deadline a reality. But after a strong push, we’ve decided it isn’t ready.
We did a lot of soul searching. We knew we wanted to get it into your hands as soon as possible. We knew the game was there, and we’re super proud of it, but we also knew it needed more time to make sure it lives up to our studio’s standards, and the quality that you expect from our games. From the very beginning, BELOW has been our most ambitious undertaking, and we’re just not quite done excavating its depths, or polishing all of its facets.
Instead of giving you a new, loose release window, we will be going dark while we take the time that we need to complete BELOW without compromise. The next time you see a major BELOW update, that means our game has a firm release date, which we’ll share.
Making games is hard but rewarding work. Accepting, even after this long development, that the game needs more time is difficult, but it’s important that we are honest with ourselves as creators, and with you, the players.
We’re sorry we let you down with yet another delay. But in the end, we need to make certain that the hard work we’ve put into this game turns into something you’ll love, and to us that unfortunately means keeping BELOW in the oven a while longer, until it truly is ready.
Thanks for the continued support, and see you on the other side.
