Won’t it be GREAT to start exploring again?!

We hope this update finds each one of you healthy and untouched by the virus. If you’re like us, we are itching to get outside and gather with friends and family again. And I’m sure we are all looking forward to exploring Riddle of the Sphinx: The Awakening!

Thankfully none of the team has had the virus. Or if we have, we didn’t know it. We have been able to continue working on the game at a constant pace!

Karen and I are still busy finishing up the few last-remaining levels. Charlie has the bulk of the puzzles programmed. Christian is stitching all the assets together and testing navigation. And Marta has been working on the Collector’s Edition crate packaging.

Here’s a sneak peek at the latest scenes:

We have so much more to show, but we are more excited about getting the game in your hands. In a few weeks, we will have an ETA to announce.

Stay healthy and stay safe!

Jeff and the ROTS Team 🙂
