Cassette Beasts Quarterly Wrap Up #1

Hey everyone! It’s been 3 months since we announced Cassette Beasts so we thought it’d be nice to do a catch up of everything we’ve revealed since then – and maybe show off some new stuff as well!

Our announcement trailer reveal in May went down better than we could possibly have imagined:

  • Over 100,000 combined views across Youtube and Twitter
  • Over a dozen press articles including PCGamer and Kotaku
  • A bunch of new Discord community members, now 500+ strong!

Along with the trailer, we also showed off some monster designs, a look into the game’s chemistry system, and also the fusion system. Our in-browser playable fusion demo also let players see for themselves the capabilities of our fusion system!

It’s been fun seeing fans discuss their favourite monster fusions!

Since the reveal, we’ve been showing off snippets of the game alongside working hard on it:

Our reveal trailer song, Same Old Story, was also announced as a part of Black Screen Record’s free compilation vinyl “Sounds of Summer 2020”. It’s really exciting to see our composer Joel’s work alongside other talented musicians – it’s totally free to order the record so you should totally do that!

As a little celebration for our quarter-year anniversary, we thought we’d show off some new monsters!

Carniviper and Dominoth

Carniviper may exude a friendly demeanour, but don’t let its smile fool you – it isn’t particularly welcoming. If these poison-type beasts are encountered in the grasslands of New Wirral, they are known to silently watch any passing humans intently until they leave their vicinity. If not, they’ll become hostile very quickly! You may also have seen Carniviper’s evolved form before.

Dominoths can flap their large wings to take flight, and also whip up gusts of wind to attack their foes. Rumours are that recording this air-type creature uniquely gives the one who recorded it the power to summon wings of their own… That can’t be true, can it?

That’s all for now! Thanks for joining us on this journey so far, it’s been great fun! There’s lots of cool stuff involving Cassette Beasts we can’t wait to talk about, so keep an eye on our Twitter page. As always, feel free to come by the Discord and chat to us!

We hope you’re keeping safe this summer!

Harbourtown Outskirts

New Wirral’s rangers keep this gate locked to keep monsters out of Harbourtown. But it’s been fairly quiet for a few days now!

Vinyl

On an unrelated note, we’ve teamed up with Black Screen Records on their free vinyl Sounds of Summer 2020. You’ll be able to listen to the full version our Cassette Beasts reveal trailer song “Same Old Story,” along with 13 other indie game tracks!
