This is where we post Spymaster development updates & other random notes that come to mind.
Hades is a Greek term used to denote the deity of the underworld and the abode of the dead. In Robocide, however, it stands for "Freaking Hard Levels".
The new Hades update brings a brand new fire planet to the Robocide starmap, featuring hard-as-nails levels, diabolically designed to knock your little robotic socks off.
Think you've got what it takes to beat these badboys? Let us know on the Robocide forums... And remember: Pics or it didn't happen!
If you're more of a PvP player, then don't worry - the Hades update also brings 14 additional PvP maps, along with a bunch of balancing and under-the-hood improvements.

Busy month! Winterstate is now also available to download across Google Play stores worldwide!
Just one week after the iOS launch of Winterstate and we decided to bring our Tactical Combat Trader to Google Play stores as well.
The eagle-eyed duders at DroidGamers have already picked up on news of the launch, and so far we're seeing very positive user-reviews, with an average rating of 4.7 out of 5 stars!

Bet you didn't see this one coming! After storming App Stores and Google Play Stores across the world with Robocide, we're now ready to talk about our next release...
We're thrilled to announce that Winterstate™, our second release of 2016, is now available as a free download on iPhone and iPad devices worldwide!
Winterstate captures the thrill of AAA real-time strategy games in a way that's unique and intuitive for mobile gamers. Set in a desolate frozen USA, ragged bands of survivors must traverse the once-great nation in a variety of makeshift attack vehicles. Trade precious goods, draw and execute attacks in real-time 3D combat, while collecting iconic yellow cabs, monster trucks and even fire engines with badass weapons attached to them. We're calling it a "Tactical Combat Trader" and you can download it from the App Store here.
Winterstate is our second of three completely new game releases for 2016. We're so happy to get it out in the store for players across the world and will be following up with more news soon.
Feel free to check out the full release here and watch our brand new trailer below:
My passion has always been about creating believable worlds. It's a common thread that has ran through my years in architecture, into my time building the worlds of GTA: San Andreas, IV and V. Even when working with science fiction.
Next week, my colleagues at PlayRaven and I will be shipping out to GDC 2016!
On Monday, March 14, I will be giving the following talk as part of the Visual Arts track:
Art Direction Bootcamp: Building a Visual Threshold
Room 130, North Hall
1:20pm - 2:20pm
Look forward to seeing everyone next week. Make sure to come say hello if you see/hear a noisy bald Scottish guy stumbling around in a PlayRaven hoody - it shouldn't be too difficult to track me down ;)
That's right, Robocide is now available across Google Play stores worldwide, already with an average player review score of 4.6 out of 5!
What a week! We were thrilled to see Robocide climb across App Store charts all over the world and even take the top spot as the #1 iPad strategy game in the US!
Reviews have also been rolling in following VentureBeat's article last Wednesday. Rob LeFebvre over at Cult of Mac called Robocide a "ton of fun", Pocket Gamer's Matt Suckley also wrote a fantastic review and it was great to be included in other round-ups from Touch Arcade, AdWeek, Pocket Tactics and more.
Take a look at the infographic below for more info and, if you're waiting to play the game on Android, we're happy to announce that Robocide will be coming to Google Play on March 9, 2016!
