FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Prince Edward Island, Canada – October 19, 2016
Queen Bee Games announces today that the PC version of their Action Adventure/ Tower Defense hybrid, Onion Force, has undergone a price drop to $4.99 USD. It’s a mega-steal at a little over the cost of a bag of Onions! Along with this price drop comes the introduction of Onion Force Steam collectable trading cards and controller support!
Queen Bee Games have dropped the price of their wacky cartoon inspired indie game in order to get it into more players hands. “Being a new developer that nobody has heard of with a tiny marketing budget has had an affect on whether or not people can trust forking over their hard earned cash. And we recognize this, so lowering our price makes sense at this time.” said Kathleen, co-founder of Queen Bee Games. “We want to earn the gamers’ trust in our quality games, and with the price drop, maybe more people will take a risk on us. Some of our top fans have put over 50 hours of gameplay into Onion Force, so it’s well worth the price.”

About Onion Force
Onion Force is a hybrid Action Adventure/Tower Defense game with 30 levels of butt-puckering mayhem! Use cunning and strategy to strengthen your team, chosen from a diverse cast of characters, and hang on to your seat as you try to save the last king from his impending doom!
Make intelligent choices, collect gold and onions, and build the most effective towers for the threat at hand. Decimate evil through an array of terrain, weather conditions, destructible environments and utter chaos to find the source of this nonsense.
Onion Force is available now on Steam. PC versions of the game can be purchased from Gamers Gate, Amazon, itch.io, IndieGameStand, Games Republic, as well as direct from their website. Onion Force is also available on iOS and Google Play.
It's been awhile since we shared on our blog, but we had a great interviewwith the awesome site, games pulp that we had to share. Some bits and pieces of our journey with our first game. Check it out here

Thank you to all who have supported us your 'Let's Play' videos, streams and articles. We are beyond appreciative. Please keep them coming!
Onion Force can also be found here on the Amazon store.
The lovely peeps at Wake and Play recently checked out Onion Force, and here are their thoughts...
As forever as it seemed that we were on Greenlight, one of the benefits is all of the Awesome connections we made through great gaming websites, Let's Players, Streamers, etc. We would not have maybe met these great peeps otherwise if we weren't in hustle mode to bring traffic to our Greenlight page. And for that we are so grateful. You guys are Amazing, thanks for checking out the game, and luckily most of you liked it!!!! Woots! :D
Here are a couple of great articles about us & Onion Force from two wicked websites you'll need to check out:
These are stellar game websites! Both have such Excellent content!!!
And these are two of the latest videos of people playing Onion Force. We love seeing different people playing the game! And we have been given amazingly useful feedback along the way in which we tweaked the game, and made it all the better.
This one is from the awesome guys at The Gaming Ground
This video I think almost had me in tears laughing at one point. Love these guys!!! Be sure to subscribe for mega hilarious entertainment and game coverage :D
The super cool Jammin411 gave us his 'Indie Game of the Week' this week which we were quite thrilled with. We are loving his 1st video so far of 'Onion Force' and adoring how he just gets the game, and appreciates it. He has such a great Youtube commentary style, very energetic & engaging. So happy he is enjoying the game. Check it out & subscribe to his awesome channel:
Finally!!!! We are so very happy! It took a lot longer than we expected, and we had no idea if it would be months away or what from getting greenlit. What a wonderful surprise. We were pretty stressed out about it because we were gridlocked for so long, with very little traffic. It's so random. We are glad it's over! Having that hanging over you all the time is not fun. Especially since we had set our launch date for January 7, and that had come and gone. Anyways, it's done. Thank you all so much to whoever voted YES! We love you all.
Announcing our new game name......dun dun dunnnnn..... "Onion Force"!!!
We needed to change the name of game due to potential trademark issues, once game gets published in January. It was not worth taking the risk of keeping the name, and get ourselves into potential legal conflicts. We chose the name due to onions being important in the game, and we wanted the name to be strong, as well as quirky at the same time. I think we accomplished this.
Please go check us out on Steam Greenlight and cast your vote if you want to see 'Onion Force' on Steam! We appreciate all your support! Vote here!
We've gotta admit, getting your first bit of coverage is really exciting. It makes it all seem real, worth it and validates what you've spent so long and so hard working on.
We managed to get a super sweet article written by Alex Santa Maria from Tech Raptor- we had sent him the first 5 levels as a preview. So the article was a bit more in depth than just a 'go vote for this game' type thing. It was cool to hear his views on comparing us to 80's cartoons. As a couple of proud children of the 80's, this was pretty wicked to hear. And we are HUGE cartoon fans. Steve who developed the game comes from a background in animation, his last client being Disney so cartoon aesthetic is our schtick. Check out this great coverage for the game here!
We are LIVE on Steam Greenlight!!! How exciting. What a nerve-wracking experience to put yourself out there to the world like that. We really hope people will like our game- it's been the hugest labor of love that we have ever experienced. After a year and a half the game is completely different than when we first began. We are pumped to get feedback from the community. Please Share the Love!
