Hi everyone. I know it’s been a while since the last update, but I do have some exciting news for you all. Here at Laughing Jackal we have been working on our first ever Switch project! We’ve been working with our friends at Ghostlight to port a JRPG to Switch. While we can’t give many details about which one yet, we are all enjoying the challenges of working on a new platform, and we definitely hope to work on more Switch games in the future.
Now that we’re able to bring games to Switch, we’re looking forward to working with Ghostlight, and others, helping them bring their games to Switch, while still working to bring console games to PC as well!

Hi everyone. In the last blog I promised that I'd be back soon. But it has, in fact, been a little while since we updated the blog, hasn't it? :) Despite the lack of updates on the site we've still been very busy over the last two years.
So, what exactly have we been doing, aside from not updating the blog? :)
The reason that we've been somewhat under the radar is that over the last 2 years we've been working very closely with Ghostlight and other publishers to port Japanese console games to PC. We also found time to bring one of our classic PS3 games, Cubixx HD, to Steam.
Our current project is Nihon Falcom Corporation's fantastic Tokyo Xanadu eX+, which we're working on bringing to PC for Aksys Games Localization Inc. As a massive fan of Nihon Falcom Corp's work, I'm personally delighted to have the chance to work on this one.
That's all for the moment, but I'm not planning to leave this blog another 2 years... In the coming weeks I'll be talking about some of the other games we have been working on since last we spoke.

Hope you’ve all had a great summer. It’s been a long time since the last blog update but we’re back again with some great news!
We’re thrilled to announce that our firefighting Roguelike action game, Flame Over, will be released on PS4 in all SCEA territories on 15th September 2015, with the SCEE version appearing the next day on Wednesday 16th September. The game will go on sale for the bargain price of £8.99 / €11.99 / $11.99.
So, if you’ve longingly admired the Vita and PC versions of Flame Over this summer and wished you could take part, now’s your chance! You can learn more about Flame Over on the dedicated website: www.flameovergame.com
But there’s even more good news. The Vita version of Flame Over will be getting a patch in the next week or so that will bring it in line (as closely as possible) with the forthcoming PS4 version and fix some pesky bugs and balancing issues. So, there’s something for the firefighting faithful on Vita to look forward to as well!
We’ll be back soon with more news. For now, it’s time to start un-reeling your hoses in anticipation! :)
