PAX 10 Humble Flash Bundle for you and your friends and their friends too.

It is PAX time again in Seattle!

We do not have a booth of any kind this year which feels weird after 5 straight PAX showings in Seattle and Boston. However, PAX is still being kind to us. We are thrilled to announce Containment is in a Humble Flash Bundle this weekend full of PAX 10 games!

This is a crazy awesome bundle full of previous and current PAX 10 selections. Head over and grab our game with other greats: Jamestown, Badland, Solar 2, Fez, Life goes on, and THREE games from the year Containment was in the PAX 10.

The 2012 PAX 10 is represented by Containment, The Swapper, and Cannon Brawl. All of the games in the bundle are great as are the developers. They are certainly some of our favorite people so go get this bundle!!

Click on this handy widget to head to the store.

Since we haven’t had to plan a booth and do all that this year, we have been plugging away on Deadrock Divide. I want to keep this blog about Containment so I’ll just direct you to this forum post if you want to read more about Deadrock. Click HERE!

Have a great PAX if you are going. If you see us walking around, stop and say ‘Hi’. If you are not in Seattle this weekend, have a great one wherever you are.

- high fives forever

Mining in the Divide

In Deadrock Divide, there are corporations, factions, and small timers all trying to make money by mining asteroids.

Asteroids are full of resources like ores and crystals. These are vital for space stations to continue making products as well as for exporting out of the Divide. There is a lot of money in the asteroids for all parties.

We want you to get some of that money. There are a number of ways to get money from the floating rocks in the region. Piracy is always an option. It has a lot of risks from taking money from the wrong people and getting bounties. Trade is a good safer option. Though you are paying for other people's hard work in mining.


There are a few ways to mine yourself and skip paying for someone else's work.


Deadrock Divide is heading to Boston!


We are excited to announce that Bootsnake Games will be returning to Boston to exhibit at PAX East. We are doing it in style, as well, as we are in the Indie MEGABOOTH again!

This will be our third PAX East and after the last two, we can't wait to go. The east coast PAX is always so much fun for us. It's fun to exhibit to a whole new crowd, it's fun to see our friends we don't see often, and it's fun just to be in Boston. We look forward to seeing you all again! You may not know this but last year's PAX East was the first time we showed Deadrock Divide to anyone outside of this office. It didn't even have a name a year ago. We just called it Bootsnake Tactics! Things have changed a lot since then with the game and now is your chance to see it all first hand. Come by our booth 683 and play the game, talk to us, and enjoy the show.

For funzies, here is a screenshot from last year and a screenshot from the current game.

Deadrock Divide in the Indie MEGABOOTH


We are pleased to announce that we will be in the Indie MEGABOOTH at PAX Prime 13 in just a couple weeks! This will be our second time at PAX Prime as well as a second time in the MEGABOOTH. We couldn't be more excited. We had a chance to show off Deadrock to the fans in Boston and now we get to bring the game to all of you in Seattle. This show is going to be the best one yet.

But we are from Seattle so we are a little biased.


Deadrock Divide

Its got grids!

We have named our game. The name is "Deadrock Divide."

We love it. You know you love it. You're all like, "Bam! Best name for this game ever!"


Six Rock – The Story So Far


Today I thought I would share with you all the story of our next game as it is right now. This is all of course subject and likely to change and blah blah blah. I think you all can handle seeing what it looks like now even if it doesn’t turn out this way in the end! ;)

There is an asteroid belt out in a far off galaxy. The region is effectively known as The Six Rock Divide since there are six major asteroids that make up the belt. This asteroid belt was rich with valuable resources and so it was mined heavily. This period of heavy mining happened thousands of years ago by a race that is now extinct. They mined the belt down to what they referred to as Dead Rock. Dead Rock is a super dense, black rock that had no value at all and its appearance signaled when an asteroid was all mined out. Once the ancestral miners got all the value they could from Six Rock, they left and moved on to another location.
