Behind the Spud: Patch 1.1.0 + Free Demo! (Pt. 9)

Good day lovely spuds and spudettes, we’ve come bearing very exciting news!

As most of you may already know, Holy Potatoes! We’re in Space?! Is now FREE TO PLAY — up until the first galaxy, that is! That’s right, tell your penny-pinching friends that they’re out of excuses! They can now have a taste of the potatoverse FOR FREE!


In this demo version players dive right into the beginning of a galactical space adventure with Cassie and Fay, two spunky sisters who embark on a quest to save their missing grandfather, Jiji! Play through our very first galaxy (‘Curiosity killed the…’) where you hunt down a warping Space Cat and meet Helmet Nezingswary, a great hunter who is vying for the same furry prize! Engage in heart-thumping battles, manage a plethora of flavorful crew members, and craft unique weapons to suit your play style!

Just hop on over to our Steam page and click on the download button to journey where no potato has ever gone before!

Finished the demo and want more? Head on to the full game and enjoy the sweet new stuff we’ve added to Holy Potatoes! We’re in Space?!


Finally, the long-awaited update that includes Couch Potato (Casual) Mode is here! That’s right, infinite sols, baby! \o/ Spend your newfound free time zipping around the galaxy grinding for resources and weapons — the possibilities are as endless as your sols.


Mochi is now available as a pilot! As mentioned in the previous Behind the Spud post, she comes with an all-new set of skills, ready to be deployed on your enemies to kill them with cuteness.

Also, we have a couple new random encounters you’ll run into as you traverse the potatoverse! If you get any of the new references we’ve shamelessly stuffed into the game, why not drop us a mention over on Twitter with a screenshot? 😉

Last but not least, we hope this patch added lots of new features that you spuds will enjoy! BUT if you have an amazing, life-changing, spudtacular new idea for the game, get to writing and post a reply to our Suggestions thread on Steam! We welcome all suggestions for improvements to HPWIS — we’re committed to making the gaming experience fun and frustration-free for all!

Till the next Behind the Spud! Happy gaming! n__n

With starchy love,
Jojo & Niki
