Shift Happens comes to Steam on 9th of September 2015

Shift Happens goes live on Steam Early Access on 9th of September 2015.

Here is the trailer:

We’ve made the decision to finally get the game out there on Steam. We have been working on it for a long time and right now it feels like we have to see what the world thinks about the game.

Early Access for us means being able to communicate with players, react on their feedback immediately and building an audience. The team has been developing Shift Happens for a long time now, not always full-time, but a for a long time.

So yeah: It is happening! Go check out steam, add the game to favorites and be excited!


We are very excited about the launch.

Mercury Shift 3D is now Shift Happens!

After some struggling with our game name, “Mercury Shift 3D” is now officially called Shift Happens.

We are way more comfortable with that name and it seems to fit very well. We’re all in for bad puns, shit happens a lot in the game and the name is easy to remember. All in all it is the name we have been waiting for. With a little outside help and some brainstorming, we finally came to rest and settled with the name. No further changes.

It marks the beginning of the last few steps of development. Going through Greenlight, finishing the game, launching on Steam and finally being able to bring the game out to you guys.

We’re happy :)

Edit: We are also on Greenlight. Please vote for Shift Happens to make it, well, happen.

But how do you create something like that yourself?
