“This is the best news of the year,” said game designer David Stott, referring to the new title, which was first announced at the Game Developers Conference (GDC).
“This is our very first title,” Stott said of the game.
“It’s an indie title.”
Lazy Susan will be free to download, but Stott says he’ll be charging $15 for a full month of the free trial.
Stott and the team plan to expand the game to include other genres, including card-based combat, but will be focusing on black marble.
“This title will be our first true title that focuses on black, as black is an incredibly diverse genre,” he said.
“We want to focus on black as a genre that is going to be part of the future.”
“This game has a whole different tone than most games,” Stotts added.
“I think that it will be the first game that we are able to make that we will not just do this for free, we will do this as part of a campaign, and we will get a full game.
I think it’s a really important step forward for us, and a really exciting step forward.”
Stott told TechCrunch that he’s hoping to release the game on iOS and Android as well.
He also revealed that he was able to build a “world” that can be interacted with via social media, though he didn’t elaborate on what that might be.
“I can’t talk about any of that yet,” he joked.
“This has been built for iOS, Android, and now we’re doing it on all of those platforms.”
Stotts also hinted that the game will include a variety of unlockables that will be shared via social platforms.
“You’ll unlock different skins, so that we can really do things like get in and out of the different zones, unlock different weapons, unlock the different things you can do, unlock other abilities, you’ll unlock all sorts of things,” he explained.
