We've got an update on Second Dinner, the company founded by several original Hearthstone team members, and the status of their first game.
Although we don't know what kind of game they are creating, we do know they have a team with plenty of card game veterans and that they are in a partnership with Marvel to use their IP.
We’re partnering with Marvel on our first game. I know what you’re thinking: “WHAAAT?!!? You get to make a game with Hellcow the vampiric cow and Throg, the Mighty Frog of Thunder??”
Yes. Yes, we do. Also, Spider-Man and the Avengers and the X-Men. We’re working on the prototype already, and we think it might just be the most fun thing ever in the history of fun.
Stay tuned for more news on our various doings and shenanigans. Not like right away, but there will be more at some point. We promise!
Today it was stated that they are currently hoping to announce the project in the next "12-ish" months. Although that isn't a timeline for the final release of the game, it should give us a decent indication of when a public alpha or beta may start.
Soooooo what’s your first project again? Still waiting for the next QUALITY game
the team is hard at work on something we think is AWESOME! we can't wait to share with everyone… we're hoping to announce something in the next 12-ish months, but you never know <3
This July will mark their third anniversary of the public announcement of Second Dinner's existence and now they're up to a team of 27 talented people. If your talents can be put to use, helping them get their game out quicker, head on over to "Work Together at Second Dinner" and see more details; They currently have openings in Engineering and a position for a Technical Artist.
