08.11.2017

Thalamus is really back in business!

Their first Kickstarter project – Hunter’s Moon Remastered – has been a great success!

As numerous stretch goals were reached – including new types of levels, a new intro/outro sequence and an illustrated manual – the game will not be released in Febuary as initially planned, but it will take a bit more time to complete all the extras.

Protovision is the official and exclusive after sales partner of Thalamus, so if you missed out on the Kickstarter, don’t worry!

You will be able to buy Hunter’s Moon from the Protovision shop in the future.
