    Good morning!

    My team Leviathan Games ltd have been working on our mobile game, Starbeard, for what seems to be forever (3 years). I recently heard from the meteor fall devs that the TA community is a really great place to get actionable feedback before we release our baby to the world so here we are!

    We managed to secure some funding from the UK games fund to hire an actual coder which really has brought development forward - anyone wanting advise on how to approach pitch development, UKgamesfund and transfuzer, more than happy to help!

    THE ASK
    We have played it to death - we need fresh eyes to make sure the gameplay feels good and rewarding, and we really need to get it balanced nicely! We want to launch end of September
    .

    Our trailers a little old from when we went to Unite last year, but you do get a feel of general beardy vibe...



    About Starbeard - Premium mobile game (PP tbc)

    FOR THE BEARD!

    Starbeard turns match 3 puzzles on their head, combining tactical tussles and community developed content, all with characters that’ll leave you starry eyed.

    In this constellation matching, bug crunching adventure, players will explore beautiful levels and challenge beastly bosses.

    With strategic planning, players will conquer the Galaxy with the colourful and crazy powers of the Starbeard Gnomes, and can also create a gnome of their own design! Starbeard is built on our community, with fan art being showcased in game and the most popular designs becoming the next wave of playable heroes, supported by our regular updates and hard hitting live game support and events.

    Thanks so much for reading :)

    Amazing, thank you so much for your kind words! We are only a team 4 of part timers so it means a lot to have the validation that what we're doing is actually ok! Can I message you a testflight link?

    Pretty darn good so far, played about 10 minutes, at work. Interesting mechanics, not the usual match 3, but I like it, more stretch involved. Will update as I put more time in it. So far pretty darn good

    Oh, I forgot that it's English native and the other languages are WIP (some are Google Translate so just awful). It's better if you stick to English for now but I will update this thread when we have other languages ship shape <3

    I’m playing this and it’s very funny but also very tricky. One suggestion: could it be possible to at least reduce the number of green rocks the first boss throws on the field?

    I'm glad you are finding it challenging whilst enjoying it. On the Toad boss - that's a really good point, we will look at rebalancing the amount of slime rocks he drops, thank you!
