Out Of The Oven

We've been holding our breath for this one... but, with a sigh of relief,


Click here to view the secret text

A new Smitemasters' Selection is now available, authored by veteran architect Chaco (previously known for Smitemasters' Selection Finding the First Truth). It is themed around the Forbidden Gel element, and thereby helps fill in a chapter of Beethro's story, and some potential lore exploration of Gel.

The hold is published on all storefronts! On the Caravel site, you may buy a download credit, then with credit in hand, visit the Purchases page to download the hold. (Or, after claiming it, download it in-game with CaravelNet.)

On Steam, for consistency with past Smitemasters' Selection releases, the hold is DLC for DROD: Gunthro and the Epic Blunder, as DROD: Smitemaster's Selection Expansion 13.

We hope you enjoy this new hold full of both gentle and fiendish puzzles alike, and the great voice acting that brings it all together. Please let us know all your thoughts and opinions on the forums; that's what they're there for!

Other Dishes

There's only been a few holds released in 2022, but each one of them has plenty of puzzle potential and careful polish applied to it. These chefs, I mean, architects, should be proud to display their works!

- Make a Good Drod Level Compilation by Xindaris, and all community contest entrants
- Rhombusland by SDK / disoriented
- Copious Devastation by MaxxSaigen / Crimson Moon
- Scrumbly Hollow by hyperme

We also have a host of other DROD _and_ DROD RPG holds still actively undergoing architecture, so stay tuned!

The Enormous Tray-Bake - Entry Point Development Continues

An extra shout-out to Nuntar and the Entry Point crew, for getting their tremendously large, tremendously great project ever-closer to completion. Their architecture is reportedly very close to finished, their epic story is fully written, and Dragon Fogel has been singlehandedly video streaming the whole thing from start to finish, offering commentary on puzzle-solving and architecture alike. Cheer them on!

The Neighbor's Main Course - The Godkiller Development Continues

A brief further shout-out to Erik Hermansen, who is continuing to live-stream further development on Godkiller Chapter 2 and onwards. The man is tireless.

Oh geez, I haven't even played Chapter 1 yet. I better get on that sometime.

The Not-Asked For Dessert

I only wish I had time to write more newsletters so I could give out more prizes.

This newsletter's Don't Ask award goes to enzi666, specifically for having the courage to try building DROD from source - an intimidating task, for sure, but every new set of eyes on the process helps. This is essentially my way of both saying "welcome back!" and "keep going, you can do it!"

enzi666, pick a free prize from the Prize Pile!

After-Dinner Chat

Alright, that's enough, I won't keep you any longer.

You're still here? OK, sure, one more thought for the road. This release is good and all, but really, I'm more looking forward to the next one, whatever that may be. The Smitemasters' Selection submission process is still open, and we could always use more candidates - so if you have an idea, put it forward, or even go forth and make it! The whole point of Smitemasters' Selections is that they come from the community.

Gandalf? Yes... That's what they used to call me.
Gandalf the Grey. That was my name.
I am Gandalf the White.
And I come back to you now at the turn of the tide.

Oh man, long time no see. The current wars were occupying my mind. Finally a news I can use :D

It's a relief to see Treacle being released - hopefully there will be some let's play, so I can show it to my frens so they can hear me in a game
