Do you want to know what we’re working on currently, or are you looking to catch up on all of our progress to date?

New merchandise now available Published by James on 11/05/2024

I thought I’d take a quick break from working on our game to announce officially that – in celebration of hitting the 5,000+ follower milestone over on Twitter – we’ve just launched a selection of new merchandise over in the Cult of Galaxy Shop, and it’s available right now!

Kinoko’s tablet Published by James on 30/04/2024

With platforming finally in a decent and prototypable place, we’re ready to begin looking at another of our game’s core facilities: Kinoko’s tablet, which will serve as the game’s primary user interface and provide Kinoko with access to his inventory, maps, unlocked outfits, and lots more besides!

Time for another monthly update Published by James on 31/03/2024

Once again, I’ve left the monthly round-up until the very last possible moment, and so I haven’t had a chance to think of a theme for this one. Like last month, I’m just going to take this as an opportunity to read back over all my diary entries for the month and see what we accomplished in March!

Returning to work Published by James on 29/02/2024

Since I’ve not had a chance to think of any particular ‘theme’ for this month’s statutory blog post, I thought it’d be a nice exercise just to write up a February recap. After a very unfortunate end to 2023 and start to 2024, here’s an encouraging retrospective on the last four weeks.

Facing the unexpected… Published by James on 31/01/2024

Because I’m self-committed to at least one blog post every month until the end of time, whether I’m feeling up to it or not, here’s an update on our rather sad end to 2023 and what it all means for Kinoko as we roll drearily into a cold and rainy February.

Kinoko stickers, available now Published by James on 17/12/2023

Today, we’re pleased to announce the soft-launch of the brand-new Cult of Galaxy Shop – the only place where you can get your hands on official Kinoko and the Cult of Galaxy merchandise. Our first batch of stickers are in and available for purchase, and we ship to nearly every part of the world!

The month ahead Published by James on 30/11/2023

With 2023 rapidly drawing to a close, I take a look back at the last few weeks of development on our Kinoko 2D platforming game, and all the most recently added mechanics, before taking a delve into what else we’ve got planned for the few weeks we have left before the new year is upon us.

Godot: seven weeks later Published by James on 31/10/2023

Today marks exactly seven weeks today since Unity announced their Unity Runtime Fee, and since we announced that we’d be joining the masses by abandoning Unity in favour of a complete rebuild, powered by Godot. As November looms, and as we approach our game’s first anniversary, here’s an update!

Introducing the Kinoko Fan Club Published by James on 19/09/2023

Today, we’ve officially launched the Kinoko Fan Club on Patreon: your one-stop shop for exclusive, behind-the-scenes access to all the cool stuff we’re working on, including game updates as they happen, character spotlights, bonus lore, exclusive Discord channel access/roles, and lots more besides!

Breaking free from Unity Published by James on 16/09/2023

This week, Unity Technologies’ announcement of the new Unity Runtime Fee was met with fury from the gaming community, and prompted many developers – ourselves included – to look at alternative options for the future of their games. What, exactly, does this mean for Kinoko and the Cult of Galaxy?!
