Welcome! This blog has been created to chart the development of Tumbleweed Express, a "Travel Defense" game in which the player controls a steam-powered train that travels along the countryside utilizing mounted weaponry to fend off attacking enemies in a "Western Steampunk" setting. This project originated at the 2011 Fall Game Jam that was hosted by the DC Chapter of the International Game Developers Association.

Steam Greenlight & Audio Contributors Needed!
Hello indie game enthusiasts!
The Dirigiballers are proud to announce that we have have recently been Greenlit by Steam! Thus, we are currently ramping up on production planning and execution in the expectation of hitting our internal release date. Obviously we are very excited about these recent events and we hope to make a formal announcement regarding our final plans in the coming months. However, we do find that we are in need of passionate people to provide audio contributions to the project.
Do you have a desire to work on epic western steam punk music? Are you looking to boost your portfolio by contributing to an independent game development project? Do you want to work on rad stuff and help fellow indies get things done? We would love to hear from you!
Our team has several critical audio needs and were looking for an individual (or two) who can compose and execute several tracks that match the game's current score. Additionally, we're looking for someone interested in putting a critical ear to the game's audio portfolio (i.e., identifying where sound effects are needed, what's working, what's not, and executing on improvements for the game). If this sounds like something you (or someone you know) would be interested in doing, please send a resume and a portfolio to: email@example.com
