Upper Byte just turned 3!

We've been up and running for 3 years already! We want to thank you all for your support. Thanks to you our world domination plans are looking better than ever. We are proud to celebrate our birthday with you!

So, what's been going on for us these past months? Here is a quick summary of our latest adventures!

Leap Motion release
Wooden Sen'SeY was released on the Airspace last summer. A whole new way to play a platformer, for those thirsty of new and shiny stuff!
Control Goro with your finger tips!


We have been working hard on Wooden Sen'SeY. We have made lots of bugfixes, optimization and graphics enhancements. On top of that, we overhauled the menus and added a whole new time attack mode with leaderboards and 30 dedicated levels!
Yep, we got pwned.

Steam release!
Wooden Sen'SeY was released on Steam on last December! For now on PC and Mac, soon on Linux. We partnered with Neko Entertainment to give our game the support and marketing it deserves !

Upper Byte Around The World

Hi everyone!

Hell yeah, we are still here and still rocking. After our incredibly hectic last few weeks, we're eventually taking the time to make a small recap of our last trips!

IndieCade 2012

Wooden Sen’SeY was an IndieCade 2012 finalist last month in Los Angeles. We made the trip to meet the US indie community for the first time! We got a chance to meet a lot of absolutely great people, pros, hardcore players, or just people passing by wondering what was going on. These were 4 awesome days, we hope to get back there soon.

Pitch My Game

We made a short trip to Paris to show the game in a small event called Pitch My Game. We met players from France for the first time, made a small pitch (obviously) and answered some quite interesting questions. You can see some pictures here, and there is even a video for the ones able to understand French.

We're here to stay, so is Wooden Sen’SeY, we are not forgetting you and have (once again) some nice and warm cookies cooking over here...
And we need your thumbs! Please vote for us on Steam Greenlight.

Stay tuned!

Back from China

Game Connection Asia was great! We had a lot of meetings and Wooden Sen'SeY got a pretty good reception.

Indeed, the advisory board, which includes guys from Sony, Microsoft and Konami (no stress at all) awarded us for the game! Congratulations to the other competitors for their work and actually for being cool, interesting and interested during the event.

While George shows off with the trophy, we are working hard at polishing the game and preparing distribution, so you guys can play as soon as possible.
