Celebrating Prismata’s Amazing Community 1

Hey everyone, Megan here—your Prismata community manager.

The title for this article is pretty self-explanatory. With everything that’s been going on lately, a post like this is long overdue. It’s no secret that Prismata’s community is made up of many extremely dedicated, generous, and driven people, and that Prismata wouldn’t exist as it does today without them.

We don’t want you to think for a second that we don’t notice all of the wonderful contributions each and every one of you make to growing and improving our game, whether it’s through streaming the game, making videos, sharing the game, or other means. It’s time to recognize the individual behind those contributions, which is why we’re introducing…


The Ambassador Program

As a show of gratitude, this blog marks the launch of the Prismata Ambassador Program, an initiative in which we will invite outstanding community members to become Prismata Ambassadors.

Anyone can become an ambassador. The only thing you need to do is help spread the word about Prismata or create value for the Prismata community, whether it’s by streaming the game, creating Prismata content, giving away alpha keys, or recruiting new players.


What Become a Prismata Ambassador
Responsibilities Help build and grow the Prismata community
What you get An in-game Ambassador badge, plus alpha keys to give away (if you want)
Where to get it Contact me! You can email me or message me on reddit.

The only real requirement is to be enthusiastic about Prismata, and have an idea of something you could do to help the Prismata community. For some inspiration, take a look at some existing Prismata community members who are definitely worthy of the title “Prismata Ambassador”:


A Collection of Extremely Exciting Announcements

Hi, everybody!

We’ve got good news. No, we’ve got great news. Actually, there is so much incredible news happening that I’ve barely been able to sleep this week (which might be why this blog is so late!)

In any case, I can say that March 2015 is going to be HUGE for Prismata. Possibly the most exciting month yet.

Yes. Yes it is.

Today’s blog contains a number of exciting announcements, including TWO major convention/exhibition appearances next month. Here’s a TL;DR:

  1. We’ll be showcasing Prismata at PAX East next week in Boston (as part of the Indie Megabooth).
  2. We’ll also have a Prismata booth at SXSW Interactive the weekend after (as part of the Media Indie Exchange Humble Bundle Showcase).
  3. We’re also partnering with Humble to handle backer fulfillment as part of our crowdfunding initiatives.
  4. We have a new website up.
  5. Winners have been announced for our wiki and video contests.


Custom Prismata Sets, Badges, Top Games, and More!

For today’s blog, I wanted to unveil a few new Prismata features that will be going live this week. Rather than write a big article about them, I’ve made a video. Have a look:

In addition, here are the three new units that will also be going live:

Here are their exact stats and final costs (and yes, Rectifier’s text is a little funny with the whole “does not heal” bit… we’ll fix it later):

Quick update: balance survey results are out!

Hi everyone. Just wanted to post a couple of quick updates.



Hyping Skins and a Step-by-step Walkthrough of the Process 1

Hey, everybody! This post will be covering a bunch of things to do with skins: how they’re made, how we come up with the ideas, and the process in between the time we think of a skin and the time we show the finished product to you. We’ll also be previewing some of the new skins we’ve been developing, like these pirates:


Prismata’s History in Videos (and how *YOU* can be in the next one!)

Hey, guys!

First up, a quick announcement: our Impending Doom contest ended Saturday, and we received the first answer just over four hours after the contest went live. Congratulations to MasN, who completed the challenge first. All of our top 10 finishers, alongside their finishing times, are listed here.

With one contest out of the way, we’ve decided to announce another. We’re calling it Prismata in 60 Seconds, and the goal is simple: make the best 1-minute Prismata video you can. Details are given near the bottom of the article, but the prizes include an ambassador badge, the chance to design your own emote, the much-coveted first edition Prismata t-shirt, and over $100 in Prismata rewards.

Before we get to the rules and prizes, let’s take a look at Prismata’s history, according to the various videos and trailers released on our youtube channel over the past year. Whether you haven’t watched any of them, or you’re a dedicated subscriber who literally watches every single video the hour it’s posted, there might be a few little things you never knew about these videos!
