09.03.17CAPY + CARTOON NETWORK = THE OK K.O. VIDEOGAME


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.

Huge respect to Ian Jones-Quartey, Toby Jones and the whole Cartoon Network crew for being true collaborators. We can’t wait to show you more of what we’re cooking up with our CN pals.

18.08.16A SHORT ANNOUNCEMENT ABOUT ‘BELOW’


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.

23.12.15HAPPY HOLIDAYS + A YEAR IN REVIEW!


Please, take a seat. Relax. Keep warm by the fire, and enjoy this long vignette as you celebrate your holidays.

If you want a version that seamlessly loops for ultimate warmth and relaxation, get it here.

And while we’re already celebrating the holidays, lets also look back on the numerous cool things that Capy did in the year 2015.

2015 had two big releases for our studio – the first was bringing our time-traveling run’n gun platformer SUPER TIME FORCE ULTRA to PS4 & VITA. And as a special treat for our Sony fans, we included three PlayStation exclusive characters: Sir Galahad from The Order: 1866, the nameless traveler from Journey, and none other than President of Sony Worldwide Studios himself, Shuhei Yoshida. Thanks to RAD & thatgamecompany for letting us use their characters, Yoshida-san for letting us turn him into a Time Force character, and SCEA for helping us out throughout development & release.

While we were at it, we teamed up with our close friends at Klei Entertainment to create a Capy-made expansion for their mega-hit game Don’t Starve, called Don’t Starve: Shipwrecked. We had a blast making it, and still are, as the expansion released in Early Access just a few weeks ago on December 1st. Working with Klei was amazing, and making our own take on Don’t Starve was a genuinely fun and unique challenge. Thanks for trusting us, Klei… and thanks to all the fans that are playing it!

While releasing a couple awesome games was certainly a highlight, perhaps the biggest highlight from 2015 was our studios 10 year anniversary. From the smallest of roots planted in 2003, to officially opening our doors in 2005, to being able to create our own games our own way… Capy has been one heck of a roller-coaster. We’re tremendously proud, and we’re also very aware that we never could have done it without the utterly fantastic team of people we work with.

CAPY 10!

While we were at it, we managed to give all of the Xbox One Super Time Force players the Ultra update for free, which we thought was pretty cool of us 😉

Oh, and our president Nathan Vella hosted the IGF Awards for the second year in a row, and managed not to shame himself or our studio. In fact, he did a pretty good job reminding our industry to care for one another.

IGF Awards/GDCA

We also managed to sneak in showing our games at a bunch of cool places, including E3, PAX, XOXO, and Day of the Devs.

Huge thanks to all our fans for supporting us. We’re really looking forward to 2016, which will (finally) see the release of BELOW, the full release of Don’t Starve: Shipwrecked, and perhaps some other cool things!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS FROM ALL OF US AT CAPY!
