Hello, one and all! Today is the big day: Bookend's PC build is done and is officially on Steam You can now download it from steam at the low cost of... FREE! Once again, we'd like to thank everyone who has supported us, followed us, and gotten us to this point.

Hello, all, it's been a while! Since our last post, we've been up to quite a few things such as a PC version and final improvements to the VR version. If you follow our twitter/facebook @bookendvr, you'll know that we released the final VR version about 2 weeks ago. But with the PC build's upcoming release, we thought we should formally announce both here as well.
Due to the ending of development, we'll be posting on here less. So if you want to check out any further news about Bookend/Paper Crown Interactive, such as featured articles, please follow our social media pages.
Thank you to everyone who has supported our game over these past months, it's meant so much to us, and we hope you enjoy Bookend's final versions.

We've had a few rocky weeks of production, we'll admit. We know the game hasn't worked for everyone (especially us, for some reason), but we hope this major update will be the most stable update to the game since we switched to Unity 2018.
As always, let us know what bugs and troubles you encounter, and thanks for being patient with us!
Thank you everyone on @itchio , @gamejolt , and indiexpo who have looked and played our game! We super excited to have reached this milestone and we're looking forward to continue improving Bookend! #gamedev #indiegamedev (Check out our Twitter for some cool artwork! https://twitter.com/?logged_out=1&lang=en)
As our team begins to come together after moving around and various jobs, hopefully we'll have more major updates to the build. For now, we've uploaded a new build that fixes the bugs that popped up after we switched to Unity 2018. Included in the new upload is a README that let's you know what to do if you still encounter these bugs. Our next update will hopefully be a little more celebratory, so look forward to that!
As we continue to update the game, we'd like to hear what bugs you all have encountered. So far we know: - the right hand model is missing - the hands may stop working Both of these are due to us updating to Unity 2018, so please let us know what you may find to be a bug in the comments below! It's super helpful since you all may be able to catch stuff we haven't yet!
We've updated our website! We now have a Press Kit page, an updated Team page (with actual buttons so no more names popping in and out), screenshots, and more sites which you can play the game on. #gamedev #indiegamedev http://bookendvr.com/
