Hi there! It’s been a while since our last post. Truth is… we are working a lot. As simple as that. Faif is shaping up really really well. We don’t have a final release date yet, but believe me: the end is near!
These past weeks we’ve spoken about our “puzzle/RPG based on gambling” game here and there. And we’ve said some really clever things… no, not really.
The core idea of the game is making a selection of five adjacent tiles in a grid and after doing it so, the game would randomly choose one. If it weren’t for the [Ludum Dare 28] theme, we would never come up with an idea like this. Ever. We love game jams!

About the name, you know. We are an independent two man studio from Argentina, so English is not our mother language — hence the grammar awkwardness or the funny sentences! Faif is how we depict in our heads the pronunciation of “five.” We know that the correct form is /faɪv/ but hey, faif works for us. (“Have a little Faif: an interview with Beavl”, Hardcore Gamer)
And that’s not it! Faif was featured at Indiegames.com, Joystiq and Rock, Paper, Shotgun!

- “Faif is a turn-based tile combat game rooted in gambling” (Joystiq)

But wait. There is also this amazing video review made by the people from TechManiak.pl!
Back to development. So yes. The end is near. The final version of Faif is going to be available for Android/iOS soon. Not next week soon. But soon. Cheers!
