Below is only a timed Xbox One exclusive *updated*
Update: We reached out to Capybara Games for more information on whether Super Time Force could follow in the footsteps of Below, targeting a multiplatform release at some point in the future. President and Co-Founder Nathan Vella couldn’t confirm or deny Capy’s intentions for Super Time Force, and reiterated that its primary focus, right now, are the games. “We posted a response to a super-often-asked fan question,” Vella explained in email. “Now we want to get back to ‘makin the games’.”
Original Story: At E3, Below debuted on the Microsoft Xbox One stage. Many thought that since they took the time to unviel the game that this would be an exclusive for Xbox One. Last week, Capybara Games announced on their blog that Below will be a limited time exclusive with Xbox One. “Like many games on stage at E3, Below will be available on the Xbox One first. Then, after a period of time, Capy can bring it elsewhere,” the developer said.
On their blog post, signed by Nathan Vella & Kris Piotrowski, they went out of their way to say how important and meaningful it has been for Microsoft to be in their corner. This is probably a good step for Microsoft, as their relationships with Indie developers has taken quite the hit, as the Xbox 360 console cycle ends.
Capy had this to say about their relationship with Microsoft, “We’ve said it many times before, but it is worth repeating: working with Microsoft Studios has been great, and they deserve real kudos for putting our dreamy roguelike-inspired game of exploration and discovery in the spotlight at E3… and we are certain they’ll continue to do more of that going forward. This clarification is about answering our fans, and shouldn’t reflect negatively on Microsoft or Xbox One – they’ve been the biggest CAPY supporters out there.”
Capybara, which is already known for games such as Sword & Sworcery and Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes, is also working on Super Time Force. With the news that Below was to go multiplatform in the future, Capy also hinted that Super Time Force may be going multiplatform as well.
