    • Introducing the New Rooster Teeth Games

      10 months ago

      MichaelHadwin Michael P. Hadwin

      Today is a very exciting day for the Rooster Teeth Games team. As of this morning, we are a new video game publishing division focused on bridging the gap between indie game developers and the worldwide community of gamers.


      Rooster Teeth Games plans to bring a wide array of games to all platforms, and in turn introduce indie developers to our super awesome community. We invite all aspiring indie developers around the world to pitch their best games to us! We’re kicking off this effort with Battlesloths 2025: The Great Pizza Wars, a game developed by Invisible Collective, which will be available on Steam this March.


      tP2EGKQ.jpg


      Battlesloths 2025: The Great Pizza Wars is the fast-paced multiplayer competitive twin-stick shooter of your slothy dreams. Compete with up to four human players, or play against some tough-as-nails AI sloths should you be short on friends. Use a myriad of weaponry, each with their own strategies, to destroy your enemies in a quest to collect the most pizza. This game features 20 unique weapons, 4 game modes, customizable battle settings, and more hats than you can fit on 700 sloths’ heads. Revel in the silliness of the slothpacalypse, shoot everything that moves, and start hoarding pizza!


      You can play Battlesloths 2025: The Great Pizza Wars at our booths at PAX South (January 27-29), RTX Sydney (February 4-5), and SXSW (March 16-18). Hope to see you there!

    • RWBY: Grimm Eclipse Launching On Consoles In Early 2017

      1 year ago

      MichaelHadwin Michael P. Hadwin

      Hey RT community!  I’ve got some great news to share... RWBY: GRIMM ECLIPSE is launching on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in early 2017!


      YES! It’s true. RWBY-GE will soon invade your living room with nonstop, hack-n-slash action!  So start exercising your gaming thumbs now. It’s about to get real!


      Some of you already knew RWBY-GE was coming to consoles, but for those who did not - I’’m making it official today. It’s no longer a rumor. No longer a maybe. It’s a fact, Jack!  


      So why did it take so long? Well, the short answer is - the console certification process takes a very, very, very long time to complete. The long QA process is great because it ensures our game is thoroughly tested and ready for action - but it’s bad because we have to wait sooo long to get final approvals. For example, we submitted RWBY-GE back in mid October and (for the sake of full transparency) we are not 100% approved yet. But we feel really good about launching in early 2017. We can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel (and hopefully it’s not a train!).


      I also wanted to let ya’ll know how much we really appreciate all the support you’ve given to RT Games this past year. Between the big Steam launch in July, the Horde mode and Team JNPR updates in October and now the upcoming console launches in early 2017.  It’s been one hell of a ride and we’re excited to continue this journey together.  On that note... we’re already working on something new!  But that’s a story for another time.  smirk


      Happy Holidays Roosters!

    • RWBY: Grimm Eclipse in Europe?!

      1 year ago

      MichaelHadwin Michael P. Hadwin

      Howdy RT friends. How’s your December coming along? Played any good games lately?  Ready for all the big game launches coming out this month?


      We had an “interesting” day at RT Games yesterday.  Sony Europe launched RWBY: Grimm Eclipse on the PS4.  Wait, what?!  Yeah, that was our reaction too.


      It appears there was an error in the system causing our game to launch early. To make matters worse, it’s an older version of the game and set at the wrong price.  A double whammy of misery and pain.  stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye


      The good news is, Sony Europe has taken the game down and we’re trying to figure out how this bomb exploded. For those of you that purchased the game, Sony plans to refund the price difference. We’re unclear on all the exact details, but we’ll be sure to update everyone once we know more.


      Now that the cat is officially out of the bag... When is RWBY:GE coming to PS4 and Xbox One you ask?  Well, we’re not quite ready to make an official announcement, but I can say “early next year!”  We are within weeks of unleashing our baby to the gaming world. We’re literally counting down the days, hours, minutes, seconds.  We’re just as excited as you are!


      So there’s the console update on RWBY:GE.  Sorry for the false alarm Europe, but at least the world knows the REAL version is coming very soon.  Hold on to your butts!


      High fives!

    • RWBY: Grimm Eclipse - NEW content update!

      1 year ago

      MichaelHadwin Michael P. Hadwin

      Hey RWBY family!  Today is a very exciting day for the RT Games team.  For the past 3.5 months, we’ve been cranking away on new content for RWBY: Grimm Eclipse and we’re launching it all TODAY!!  What’s in the new update you ask? Here’s the juicy deets...


      • Horde Mode: FREE game mode focused on co-op teamwork where your team defends security nodes from wave after wave of blood-thirsty Grimm. As you defeat enemies, you earn currency (lien) that allows you to purchase defense turrets. Use your team strategy, turrets, and combat skills correctly and you just might survive the horde (and gain some new achievements)!  

      • Team JNPR: Yes! We finally have team JNPR ready to join the fight! Each member of JNPR has a character skill tree similar to RWBY, but JNPR’s varies a bit from the standard Ultimate, Team Attack, and Ranged trees (plus new achievements). You can learn more about their abilities and play styles in our Steam community update HERE. Team JNPR is available for $4.99 (USD) and you can grab it at this link: http://store.steampowered.com/app/522120/

      • Mac version: Woohoo! Mac gamers can finally play RWBY-GE! Sorry it took so long, but we’re excited to see you on the battlefields of Remnant. Even better, you can seamlessly cross-play with other Mac and PC players. Good luck out there!
      • Localization: RWBY-GE is now available in 9 languages!  English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Russian, Simplified Chinese, and Brazilian Portuguese.  The voice acting remains in English, but subtitles and UI text are available for all 9 languages. We hope that brings more clarity for our RWBY friends living throughout the world.

      • Price change: We thought long and hard about this one, but we’ve decided to drop the price to make it easier for our RWBY fans living on a budget. We want all RWBY fans to be able to enjoy the fun so starting today, RWBY-GE will be $19.99 (USD). We hope that makes it a little easier for those who haven’t been able to purchase the game yet. So tell all your friends now’s the time to grab RWBY-GE (and JNPR too)!

      Okay, that’s the big news for today... But we aren’t stopping there. Nope, we are continuing to explore new content ideas and future DLC offerings. So stay tuned for more goodies in the future.


      Lastly, THANK YOU so much for all your support for RWBY: Grimm Eclipse. Our team is so energized by your love and support. It really means a lot to us when we hear all the kind words you’re sharing on our website, Steam community, and on social media channels. Your support keeps our creative fires burning and we thank you a thousand times over.


      Until next time, peace and love from RT Games team.  smileyheart metal

    • Greenlit on Steam in 2 days!!

      2 years ago

      MichaelHadwin Michael P. Hadwin

      On behalf of everyone here at Rooster Teeth - THANK YOU so much for your support!! You guys ROCK!!

      The response to RWBY: Grimm Eclipse has been simply amazing! We rocketed to #1 within the first hour of submitting to Greenlight and held the #1 spot until finally getting approved. We’re not ready to share all our numbers just yet, but we can say that 99% of our total vote count were YES. And most of our stats were 23x above the average.

      WOW! Just wow. We are so %$#@&! excited right now!

      So what’s next you ask?? Well, now that we are Greenlit - we need to continue developing the game and get it ready for you to PLAY! The foundation of the gameplay is already solid, but it’s not done yet. We are still in active development and continuing to design systems, features, enemies, levels, story, etc. There’s still a LOT more content to finalize before it’s officially ready for your beautiful, calloused, gamer hands.

      We really appreciate your positive feedback and ideas in the comments section of our Steam page! All of your kind words have inspired us to make a great game even greater! So keep those comments, questions and discussions coming and we’ll try to keep up with answers. But keep in mind - we can’t share all the nitty-gritty details just yet... There’s still plenty to figure out as we continue to design and develop the game. We’ll share important details once they’re ready, but please be patient with us as we continue this journey together.

      Again - thank you, thank you, thank you for helping us get on Steam! We love each and every one of you and can’t wait to share RWBY: Grimm Eclipse with you!

      High fives from Austin, TX!

      Howdy friends! In case you haven’t heard, we launched RWBY: Grimm Eclipse on Steam Greenlight today! We would love your support by voting YES at the link below:

      bit.ly/RWBYsteam

      This is a very special day for Rooster Teeth’s Game team. We’ve all been working incredibly hard the past 7 months developing RWBY:GE into a high quality, premium game. And now we get the chance to share it with our Rooster Teeth family (and the entire world)!

      I’m extremely proud of my team and the amazing work they’ve created in such a short amount of time. It’s awesome to watch the game develop a little further every day, and even more exciting knowing what we have planned for the final launch!

      So stay tuned for future updates and hopefully a big announcement if the game gets approved for Steam Greenlight. Also keep an eye on RWBYgame.com as we continue to add more game info, screenshots, videos, etc.

      THANK YOU so much for your support!!

      Howdy friends! My name is Michael P. Hadwin (aka MPH) and I recently joined Rooster Teeth as the Director of Game Development. My mission is to help RT build an internal games division. Our goal is to develop games for our existing brands as well as creating original games that hopefully evolve into new shows. Super-duper exciting stuff!!

      A little about myself... Most of my 20 year career has centered around the video game industry with a few side quests into TV and films. I've worked on all kinds of games from massive AAA games such as HALO and DC Universe Online, to medium sized games such as Epic Mickey and Guilty Party, and a few mobile games such as Age of Booty: Tactics and Marvel Avengers Initiative. I feel lucky and humbled to contribute to such an exciting industry and with the promise of VR and AR gaming on the horizon it's only getting more exciting! (Holodeck now, please!!)

      I can't talk much about our future game dev plans (yet), but I can tell you we already have a RWBY game in production! In fact, we have a playable demo on our website for our Sponsors. If you haven't played the demo yet, GO PLAY NOW! And make sure to leave us your feedback in the comments section. If you're not a Rooster Teeth Sponsor yet, what are you waiting for? Come join the fun and enjoy all the special perks of Sponsorship! All the cool kids are doing it.

      Stay tuned for more "Game Dev' updates as we continue to build the team, share our development process, and give you sneak peeks of what we're working on. It's going to be an amazing journey and I want you to come along for the ride!

      On that note, I'll be posting a "survey' soon asking what types of games you'd like to see Rooster Teeth create, your favorite genres, favorite platforms, favorite Street Fighter combo, etc. We love our fans and want to make sure we're baking up tasty treats that fulfill all your gaming dreams and blow your minds with face-melting awesomeness!

      Stay tuned for more updates. Cheers! smiley0.gif
