After an exciting week with a lot of great responses to our 100k unit announcement and the Lethal League Steam Daily Deal it’s time for some serious stuff.
CANDYMAN FAN ART!
It has come to our knowledge that the notorious Candyman is pretty popular among the kids. Lune (who made this pink piece of fan-art) knows better and is aware of the dangers of free candy. “Last time someone offered me free candies, things got wrong. Got a 56.000mph ball making soup of my jaw!! x_x”
This week we got a big delivery of sweet Lethal League caps! We will be selling these unlimited edition genuine premium high quality Lethal League caps at the events we will be visiting. On top of that we are also giving away some of those! The first EVER person to get a Lethal League cap is Adam. On Facebook he told us he wants to play the game with his bro Rashel. Easy win! Congratulations Adam (we will reach out to you on FB).
Check out the Lethal League cap on Jelmar, our totally for-real tattooed intern.
We have no more news for you. Go now and have a great weekend!
We are proud to announce that Lethal League has sold over 100.000 units worldwide and has been played for more than 500.000 hours since its release on Steam in August last year. This goes far beyond our expectations!
What does this milestone mean? It means that we currently have enough resources to keep doing what we love to do, create awesome games. It also means that we think it’s a good idea to bring Lethal League to other platforms starting with Mac & Linux. We will release a Mac & Linux version of Lethal League – including cross platform online multiplayer – on Steam on May 13, 2015.
Even more exciting is the fact that we are working on a console version of Lethal League too! As much as we want to we can’t announce any more details just yet.
Stay tuned for more details and thanks again for supporting us!
Did you know Candyman and Latch are big buddies? We didn’t but according to this great fan-art by Sass they must be big buddies right? Check out her tumblr to see more of Sass‘ work.
Last two weeks we were out in the fields showing Lethal League. It was awesome to meet some of the hardcore Lethal League fans and play some matches with them. On top of that it is always great to introduce new players to the game. Some of the kids were really hooked after a few matches and kept coming back to challenge their friends. Events like these are also the perfect opportunity to stay in touch with the game press and cool youtubers.
Check out some pictures below of Insomnia54 and Dutch Comic Con
This morning there was a big power outage (which is pretty rare around here), the above image of Raptor represents the emotional state we were in. Scared, cold and lonely.
Luckily we survived! All game engines are up and running again and we are working on some prrretty cool stuff. Just as Ryu, who created this cool fan-art piece from Raptor!
It has been a while since we showed Lethal League at an event. So it’s time to go out and hit some balls. This weekend (28/29 March) we will be showing Lethal League at the first edition of the Dutch Comic Con.
Next weekend (3/6 April) we will drop down in Coventry (UK) to show Lethal League at Insomnia54. Last year at Insomnia53 the game was live on stage which was pretty cool but this time we will be there in person. Feel free to challenge us!
That’s it for now, have a smashing weekend.

Have a smashing weekend!
Guess what. It’s Friday and we still have loads of incredible fan-art. Since today is a special day we will feature two artists!
First to enter the stage is this Sonata by Nekophelia. Sonata fan-art is quite rare so we were glad to find this piece. What a great style! Check out the rest of Nekophelia’s work here http://nekophelia.tumblr.com/ and follow her on twitter.
Even more rare is Dice fan-art. Douglas’ favorite character was Candyman until he started getting good at playing as Dice. So good that he dedicated this nice fan-art piece (he calls it a doodle) to him. Check out the rest of Douglas’ work here http://sparklewoof.tumblr.com/
You got some doodles we should see? Feel free to send your work to email@example.com or share it with us on twitter or facebook.
Check out these sick Latch, Candyman and Switch by Thomas Bramall. Our favorite for this set is definitely Switch. That’s exactly how Switch looks at you right before he destroys you with a kickflip.
We are always very excited to see fan-art from fellow game artists. Thomas is a Lead Character artist on Oddworld New ‘N’ Tasty and you can check out the rest of his work here http://tda3d.tumblr.com/ or follow him on twitter @tombramall
Did you drew some fancy fan-art too? Feel free to send your work to firstname.lastname@example.org or share it with us on twitter or facebook.
To start off, Lethal League had a great launch, hitting the target we had set for a month in barely half a week. There’s a lively scene of players and it appears to be steadily growing. From competitive-heads wrecking rookies online in Quick Match to party-goers playing local Free For All battles. Here’s a big thank you from Team Reptile for playing our game and telling your friends!
Why would we go to Casual Connect 2014? We don’t make mobile or casual games, we don’t necessarily like F2P stuff. It felt we had no reason to go there at all even though it was only a few miles away from our office! Fortunately we were invited to show the current version of Lethal League at the Indieprize showcase hosted at Casual Connect 2014.
The location (Beurs van Berlage) was impressive and the main hall was reserved for all the indie developers (110!) who were invited. We had a great time meeting great developers, making new friends, party hard and of course showing the latest version of Lethal League which is currently in closed beta on Steam.
The response we received on the game was really impressive, we heard quite some oOoOOooOH, aAAAaaAH and other unidentifiable screams. It’s currently our most valuable measurement tool for defining the good things in the game. Also the word of mouth during the event was pretty effective. A lot of people kept returning to our booth to show this “insane” game to their friends and colleagues. All the positive attention the game got was pretty exciting and we would certainly be up for more!
Several other developers said this before but it doesn’t really matter what kind of event it is. If it’s an opportunity to showcase your game, go for it! We will continue showing Lethal League at several events this year so stay tuned to find out where we will be next!
2013 was a very exciting year for us. Dion and I successfully released our debut title Megabyte Punch which received a lot of great reviews and responses from the players…
We also left our tiny attic behind and we moved into a very decent new office in the heart of Hilversum. We were even ranked in the top 100 of “Europe’s most exciting game start-ups” by the Develop100.
Earlier this year our flash prototype version of Lethal League hyped up a lot of people and at the Ultimate Fighting Game Tournament. Last November we started the REAL Lethal League development at full force. You can follow the development here
2014 will be the year of Lethal League!
Lethal League will feature multiple characters, voice acting, unique abilities, different levels, native controller support, high performance online GGPO multiplayer (up to 4 players), a banging soundtrack featuring various artists (including Doctor Lazer) and full Steam integration. Yes, Lethal League will come to Steam in 2014!
Thanks for all the support in 2013!
Happy end of year holidays!
Tim & Dion
