Newsletter #1: Regency Love Launch Day!
Welcome to the first newsletter from Tea For Three Studios! We hope you’ve been doing well over the last few months, and are keeping nice and warm in the wintery season (or keeping cool and hydrated, if you’re from the Southern hemisphere).
A lot has been going on in the virtual office of Tea For Three Studios, but instead of inundating you with copious emails about all the tiny steps of progress, we thought we’d save the chunky stuff for you. And so, without further ado, I’d like to announce that, on this special occasion of Jane Austen’s 238th birthday, Regency Love is finally available on the app store! Get it now here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/regency-love/id763991668?ls=1&mt=8
We are running a promotional price of US$2.99/AUD$2.99/GBP£1.99/EUR€2.69 for the next month—just in time for the festive season! After this, the game will be available for US$4.99/AUD$5.49/GBP£2.99/EUR€4.49. (And I’m sorry if I’ve missed your currency!)
Of course, as this is our first major project, with a gestation period of over 2.5 years, we will happily admit that we are both super excited and terribly anxious. As much as we’ve had an absolute blast making this game, we’ve also had to hold back on many aspects: there are at least six more full characters and plots we’ve wanted to explore, but haven’t had the resources to do so. A lot is dependent upon the response to this first release, which is why it would mean an enormous deal to us if you could offer your support, whether it be purchasing the app, gifting it to friends, or simply spreading the word.
At the end of the day, we just want to create something that gives you, the player, the means to tell your own Regency story—the birth of the reader, indeed! And, as there is nothing quite like this kind of immersive, interactive, multimedia novel, we would like to show the world that it is possible, that we can all tell and read stories in this engaging way. We hope you will join us on this exciting journey!
And now, for a whole bunch of goodies, gathered together in this juicy first issue of our newsletter—be prepared for the links galore!
Several other reviewers have also completed their play-through of Regency Love, and will be posting their thoughts soon. If you’ve written and posted a review on your site or blog, do let us know so we can link it on our sites. Alternatively, if you have any other thoughts or feedback, please drop us a line—we’d love to know what you think!
If you would like to receive more frequent updates, please join us on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, or a combination of them all. Otherwise, if you’d prefer to keep receiving lovely, jam-packed newsletters such as this one, simply stay subscribed.
Thank you for lending your support to Regency Love and Tea For Three Studios. We hope you’ll have a safe and happy winter (or summer) break, and we look forward to seeing you next year!
With very best wishes,
