New contest?

Hi everybody!
We hope you’ve all enjoyed Katja’s Escape. As we said not so long ago, during September Or will be away for a month, so this means we’ll be back with new games on October (but don’t worry, we’ll release the ‘Freak out kid’ game in the middle of September, plus we will keep on blogging during this time.

So here’s what we’re planning for October:

The release of David&Keithan!
Thanks to your great ideas the guys have well equipped secret headquarters, with a police scanner radio, an arcade machine, water guns, bean bag chairs and more:
secret headquarters

Continuing our post from last week, The Baron a.k.a. Grape Grove is also coming along nicely. We are still in the sketches stage, like you can see at the post’s top picture and these below:

Due to the lack of time we will most likely won’t have a Halloween game this year, but we promise you a good scary game later on.

In addition, we’re working on Skip Around the World – India. Any Indian visitors are welcome to suggest famous Indian jokes, celebrities, food, etc.

The upcoming contest

For our new readers who might didn’t know, from time to time we have contests and raffles with prizes.
Our next contest will be held in adjacent to the release of The Baron.
We gave Carmelo’s mugs and Carmelo’s Christmas cards last time, and we want to hear what kind of prizes you would like to have this time? T-shirts? Mouse pads? Mugs again? Perhaps a book? Or maybe something else?
You’re welcome to suggest your ideas in the comments below.

That’s all for today, see you next time! 🙂

  • Lauren

    I know this might not be easy, I don’t really know if you can even do it but maybe a phone case? I think it would be pretty cool!

  • AtomicBow

    Maybe like a signed book of all those who work at Carmel games, with pictures and stuff like that. Or a goody bag full of mini figures of characters of each game or some games, along with a card saying ”Congratulations! You have won our raffle.”, and below it can have Carmelo.
    Oh! I have another idea! A signed t-shirt with Carmelo and the logo on the front! Mouse pads are a great idea too. 😉

  • Red Spark

    I can’t wait for the games! Loved Katja 2! Good luck with the other games.

  • Xin Yi

    Really loved your games! Anticipating for more!
    I personally think T-shirts would be really cool :), or badges designed with Carmelo in it.
    Keep up the good work!

  • AI

    good Carmelo 🙂

  • Princess Calla

    Nice! T-shirts and mugs would i like to win!

  • Ida ^-^

    Mouse pads with Carmelo on is a good idea. :3

  • Irenne

    The portraits on the wall in the 1st Baron sketch made me laugh 😀
    Talking about the contest prize, T-shirts are a good idea, but I’d also like an diary with carmelo on it, a book with your sketches in it (I love your sketches!), a clay model of one of your characters… Now i run out of ideas, but I’m sure you’ll find a good prize.

  • Someone has already said this but i think it would be cool. Phone case with Carmelo on it. Maybe?

  • Parto

    what is this stick of carmelo in the game use about?I saw it before but I didnt understand why

  • roadrunnrrr

    I vote for t-shirts and mugs. And maybe pajama bottoms covered with Carmelos to pair with the t-shirts for a complete Carmelo PJ set!


    For the Indian game , I have lots of idea:
    Food = pani puri (snack) ,dosa , idli are south Indian food
    U can make skip visit to the famous Bollywood actor “shahrukh khan”
    U can put taj mahal which is included in 7 wonders of world
    And a statue of freedom fighter “MAHATAMA GANDHI”
    And a dialogue in Hindi – ” bade bade shehron mein choti choti baate hoti rehti hai”
    And pls make the skip around India fast.

    I think if would be rad if you gave out some actual sketches from the games. even though im guessing most of the sketches were done in a digital format. would just be cool to have some of the art.

  • Jamie Hamilton

    For some reason during our family trip to Kerala, the auto rickshaws had a meter, but if there are 4 people in the auto, it’s extra. There were also a few autos without meters, and depending on where we wanted to go, the price changed. For example, going to a famous mall is much much more money and gong to a temple is the normal amount. Didn’t help that all the malls were near and the temples were far away.

    So, i think the joke is when Skip arrives in India, there’s a big argument over money, and in the end he has no money to sight see so he has to improvise.

    Oh, and I just found out most of the street foods in Delhi contain poop. There are lots of jokes for that.

    Finally, this adorable picture.

    And this not so adorable picture.

    • lol
      Thanks for the good laugh 🙂

  • Jamie Hamilton

    As for the contest, A BOOK!! MANY book nerds probably on this site. I suggest a funny book, since the main thing a lot of people like about your games is the fact that there are a lot of funny stuff. Anyway, thats my two cents for the day
