Merry Christmas from Owl Cave

Hello all! Nina here. And Ivan, but he’s in the corner feeding pancakes to bears.

Merry Christmas, happy holidays and all that jazz. Hope you have a great time.

Few things we want to talk about as the year ends. Firstly, we’d like to thank all our fans and customers for the deluge of support in 2015, during which we released The Charnel House Trilogy. We couldn’t have done it without you, and we’re eternally grateful for your continued support and encouragement.

Secondly, as some of you are no doubt aware, our publisher Mastertronic has sadly gone into administration and are no longer able to publish our games. What this means is we now have the publishing rights to Richard & Alice and Charnel House Trilogy and will be acting as our own publishers for these games. We also have a couple of new games in the works which currently don’t have publishers lined up, something we may well keep the way it is. Thanks to some wonderful people at Valve, Humble and various other stores, our games are or will be still available. They’re currently in the Steam Christmas Sale right now, for example! With this new change to our distribution, we could use your support more than ever, and we’re exceptionally grateful to receive it. It’s gonna be a fun, scary, busy ride but bring it on! And while Owl Cave and Mastertronic have parted ways, we wish our former colleagues all the best, and thank them for a year of wonderful, fruitful times together. They gave us an opportunity that made a world of difference to us, and it’ll never be forgotten.

Next, if you missed it, we released our third game just recently; it’s called Tourist, made by myself and Ivan, and it’s available here for free.

And remember; you can get Richard & Alice or The Charnel House Trilogy on discount in the Steam sale right now!

Finally, early in 2016 we’ll be announcing a new game. A SURPRISE new game. No more details yet, but in the following Christmas card, you may find a clue or two.

And now, from Owl Cave, we wish you a Merry Christmas with this fantastic card drawn by Ivan, and a ridiculous poem written by me.

Owl Cave Christmas

Merry Christmas from Owl Cave!

T’was the night before Christmas
And on Augur Peak
Not a person was screaming
Not even a shriek.

Barney and Lydia
Played by the tree
And Lizzy was studying
Busy was she.

Out in the kitchen
The adults drank gin
With Richard and Alice
Just glad to be in

Alex and Harold
Talked about this and that
And how, in the morning,
They’d go and see Kat.

The Tourist stood by,
Sipping booze, watching all,
And nobody knew she was there
Not at all.

And Christopher Parkin
With suit of pure grey
Dreamed of the seaside
And his trip there in May.

But in the next room
Was a red-clad old gent
Creeping forth with a huge bag
Of gifts and presents.

And right there behind him
Stood his faithful steed
And if you heard ‘hththaaaah’
I’d say ‘largely agreed!’

So from all here at Owl Cave
Where we work causing fright;
“Merry Christmas to all!
And to all, a good night!”
