ProjectSOL is on the way…

Posted in Games, iphone, ipod, News, ProjectSOL, Shooter, stars on July 28th, 2011 by George K

Hello all! Hope you’re well!

I’ve been working on ProjectSOL for the last two years…

Obviously not all in one go! I started in August 2009, inspired by something I saw while on holiday and wanting to make a game so easy to play that even my mother could have a go on it!

It wasn’t till a year later, that my friend Penguin ( Yay! Penguin! :D ) decided on the art style. It’s quite lovely!

Unfortunately, Penguin was/is a very very busy man! So the project was worked on by me on and off between releases.

I’ve finally found an artist that can help me finish this game! I’m still playtesting it, getting the feel right, the scoring, the pace etc…

But now, I also have the rest of the graphics pretty much done. I’m just waiting on the hats!

THE HATS!!!

ProjectSOL is a shooter of sorts. But it’s not like what you’re thinking right now!

Screenshots soon!

:D

Hello, a review, and thanks! :D

Posted in .Matrixx, App Store, Apple, iPad, Music, News on July 20th, 2011 by George K

Hello everyone, hope you’re having a lovely day! :D

Just wanted to thank everyone for the kind words about our latest, .Matrixx, which is out and about in the iPad section of iTunes :D

People seem to be enjoying the game, which is lovely, and the numbers are growing on GameCentre every day.

Thank you all for giving the game a shot! Hopefully we’ll get a mention in New and Noteworthy soon (prays to our *very* profitable recently ‘Apple Overlords’) and some more reviews should be coming in soon.

In the meantime, here’s one from the always awesome arcadelife.

Some highlights:

“No birds, no zombies, no tired old physics puzzles; just cool graphics, cooler music and my own personal favourite control method – relative touch. Thank you.”

“You will like this if you enjoy: Getting your hair blown back while riding the cutting edge of indie iPad gaming.”

“This game rocks!”

How lovely is that! Thanks to everyone at Arcadelife for that!

iTunes reviews are also pretty positive!

“Its really addicted, love the very new form of gaming on the iPad and the design is outstanding.”

“This game takes my favorite aspect of arcade shooters, bob and weave and takes away the distraction of shooting. Easy to pick up and play and addictive as they come.”

“Been playing this for 2 hours straight, my finger hurts and it’s so worth the pain!! Lovin’ the music and sound fx, reminiscent of Wipeout, and the gameplay is so addictive, you just have to see for yourself!!”

Thanks to those of you that left such lovely comments/reviews – it’s awesome :D

Oh, and I’m sorry about my seemingly insurmountable high score – it just kinda ‘happened’ :O

Can you beat me? :P

Next: ProjectSOL. Probably. :D

.Matrixx finally arrives for iPad! :D

Posted in .Matrixx, App, App Store, Apple, iPad, retro on July 17th, 2011 by George K

Hello all!

After a difficult birth, .Matrixx is now available for iPad, at a launch price till July 18th of just $.99

You can read about the game, see video and look at screenshots here.

I hope you enjoy it, and thanks for the support!

:D

An apology… and a FREE game for your MAC :D

Hi everyone,

For those looking for .Matrix on iTunes:

Firstly: thank you for looking for it! You’re awesome!

Secondly: sorry you can’t find it :(

I’d asked for an expedite from Apple so that the release coincided with the marketing effort ( twitter/facebook/previews/YouTube/press releases etc ).

I screwed up and asked for Friday 16th July ( when it should have been Friday 15th July ).

Obviously it wasn’t approved in time for Friday, and assumed that some clever spark at Apple had changed it to Saturday 16th July.

Alas this hasn’t happened.

I can only apologise for this, and I now have no idea when it’ll be released – I’ve manually set the release date to tomorrow (Sunday July 17th) and I’ll keep you posted, obviously!

Again, apologies to anyone looking forward to this, and thanks so much for your support!

Anyway, to try and make up for it, here’s the Mac version, totally free!

It’s the full game (without GameCenter, oviously) and though it’s not quite the same (control is much MUCH better on an iPad), I hope it gives you an idea of what the game’s like!

Enjoy!

.Matrixx heading to an iPad near you!

Hello all! Hope you’re well!

I’m hoping that this Friday (July 16th) will see the release of the next Quantum Sheep game, .Matrixx (pronounced ‘dot matrix’).

The game sees the player posing as a hacker, piloting an ‘avatar’ within the enemy mainframe, ‘Lothos’, trying to collect blue data spheres while avoiding the enemy red data spheres and picking up powerups!

The enemy data spheres are constantly changing direction, and are later joined by ‘Homer’ and ‘Stalker’ enemies – a challenge for most people!

The pressure increases as time goes on, and the game’s very very simple, but fiendishly addictive (helped no doubt by GameCenter leaderboards and unlocks for your avatar, backgrounds and music!).

Here are some screenshots, and I hope you’ll enjoy playing the game on your iPad!

I just wanted to say ‘thanks’ to 郑大海 for posting a review of Air Supply on the Chinese iTunes store!

I think it’s the first I’ve ever had! So exciting!

For those of you curious as to 郑大海’s opinion, he gave the game 5 Stars, and I quote:

又是一个像素怀旧风,IOS平台万岁!

That’s awesome! Thanks 郑大海 :D
