Featuring a Song by Laura Shigihara

Laura Shigihara is best known as the lead composer and sound designer for Plants vs Zombies, as the composer/lyricist/singer for To The Moon’s “Everything’s Alright”, and as the voice for the Singing Sunflower pet in World of Warcraft. We love Laura’s music and we’re super happy she contributed a song to our game! It’s called “Better Days” – check out the music video below!

Behind the Scenes – Programming

For you programmers (or aspiring ones) out there, here’s a run down of the development environment we’ve used and modified to create A Quiver of Crows: Developing a 2D Game for Windows, Mac, & Linux with Cocos2d-x. In the post, lead developer Chad highlights the languages and frameworks we use as well as the modifications we have made to overcome certain implementation challenges.

Prepping and Testing

The past month has mostly comprised of testing and prepping for launch. With all this testing, we’re getting really good at the game! Which is good because we’ve also had to test the leaderboards a bunch too!
