Ever since our studio started back in 2009, we've mostly relied on social media such as Twitter to stay in touch with our players and keep you posted about what we're up to. Today we'd like to let you in on a simple alternative: our mailing list, the Supergiant Blast! Sign up right here in just a few seconds.

Join our mailing list and get the inside scoop on all things Supergiant!

We've made limited use of an email mailing list over the years for announcements and special offers. With the Supergiant Blast, we want to bring you an even closer look at what we're working on. Our mailing list subscribers will be the first to hear about any new games we're making, and will get access to exclusive deals on our original merchandise and inside looks at our studio.

We're kicking off the Supergiant Blast later this month! Sign up by June 25 if you want to get the first installment. We've also updated each of our games on Steam to include quick links to our sign-up page. Beyond that, we've got a lot of exciting stuff in the works here these days! We'll be looking forward to telling you all about it in the weeks and months to come.
