It’s hard to put into words all of the emotions felt when a long-running project comes to fruition. Days, weeks, months and years of hard work along with all of the sacrifices made along the way are not experiences and time that can be easily summated into a simple blog posting. Yet, here we are today reading a post which encompasses all of these elements from BattleTails developer Huck Gee.battletails1

Brace yourselves, here is the update:

“Holy shit. BattleTails now has an official launch date.”

So maybe I was overreaching there a bit. However you have to admit there’s a certain nuance to the excited expletive lead-in that captures his true emotions, no? Since then Huck has posted an additional, if decidedly less sassy, upset indicating that the game has been released and is available now.  This strategic defense title, which was funded in 2013 after raising $54k, was animated frame-by-frame and looks great.  It’s available for free in the Apple App store, and is worth checking out.
