In case you missed it buried down in our birthday post, we released a brand new trailer for The Legend Of Doodle on Monday!

Can you believe we’ve been Laying About for FIVE YEARS?

It's true! Today is our 5th anniversary here at The Layabouts. Happy birthday, everyone!

Every new year, I more or less have the same things to say: “Wow, it sure has been a wild ride for us!” “Has it really been that long?!” “The future sure is looking bright!” I think I'll spare you this time -  not because I disagree with any of those statements, but because they'd just be redundant at this point! Instead, I'm happy to announce that we're doing something a bit more special this year.

What would you like to learn next? Tell us!

Hey there everyone!

We’ve been hard at work getting The Legend Of Doodle to the playtesting stage. We’re nearly there, which means that very soon we’ll be able to start sharing details about the game again - fewer crunch-related headaches and whatnot. This also means that I’ll be getting the free time to start talking about Collectems again as well, so we’re pretty happy all around.

So, as I’m sure you’ve read in the title, I’m here with a very specific question: what would you like to learn about next? What sorts of future blog posts would you like to see from us? That goes for both The Legend of Doodle and Collectems (though do keep in mind that development is still very early on the latter). Are you interested in hearing about story details? Game structure? Mechanics? Characters? Let us know! Leave us a message here in the box below, or if you’d prefer - send us an email, or write a post over at our community forums. Help us figure out what we should be talking about, and then, well, we’ll start talking. Thanks!
