Busy Sheep

We’ve been busy trying out some new technology which you’ll hopefully see little bits of in some of our new games.

It’s nothing new, but will hopefully mean our games look a lot better than they have in the past.

We like to call it ‘Phase II’ – and we’ll see you there!

On an unrelated note, we’ve been playing a few of PlayMeshes MMO titles – they’re quite fun, even if all you’re doing is pressing a few ‘confirm’ buttons, but the weirdest thing happened the other day.

Within just three months, we’d become the top player on one of their games. Without spending a single penny.

You have to wonder how on earth they make any money!

No updates

We don’t mean no updates from us! We’re carrying on as always! :)

However, Apple has, it seems, decided not to show updated apps in the list of recently released apps anymore.

This is great news. It means that new games will actually appear in the list. NEW games. Not games from months ago that have changed something minor in order to gain more visibility through an update.

It’s a loophole that has been used and abused by many. We obviously feel a bit bad for those that relied on this, but really, it’s just not on, is it?

We’ll be adding updates to all our games as soon as the tools are ready. Not to gain more visibility. Just to fix bugs and generally make the games better.

Isn’t that the whole point?
