I can’t please everyone, but…

Posted in .Matrixx, App Store, Games, iPad, Reviews on February 7th, 2012 by quantumsheep

Hello everyone! Hope you’re well!

Things are getting very busy at the moment. Most of the back-end stuff for ProjectSammy is in place. I have systems set up to handle the inventory, objects, locations, feedback and puzzles. It’s really quite overwhelming at times!

Soon I’ll start actually putting the game together, which will probably take a little over a month with any luck (that’s ‘developer’ talk for TWO months!). I’ve been very productive of late but the task ahead is huge!

In other news, I just wanted to say that I do read every single review posted on iTunes, good or bad! I appreciate that complete strangers take time out of their day to let me (and others) know what they think of my efforts!

I got a really well written review the other day for .Matrixx on the iPad by a chap called ‘The Other McCoy’. It reads:

Fine gameplayDifficult one to rate. It’s a good example of the new indie golden age we have on IOS – but I’d say one of the simpler games of the sort. Graphics are minimal (but clean), sound is a retro homage (quite nice actually), and gameplay is *golden*. It’s pretty straightforward but it works well. I’m no authority but it seems quite original to me. Another thing I like about it is that it has an easy-going “just one more time” vibe even though it does get pretty busy. With some arcade games I have to be in the mood for the challenge but I can goof around with this one anytime. I was tempted to rate it 3 because of its minimal nature but the gameplay and vibe take it to 4.

Firstly, thank you so much for giving the game a chance! Just as importantly though, I’m very glad you seem to be enjoying it. It really does make my day to read reviews such as yours, sir, and I thank you, and everyone else that writes reviews, for your opinions!

Spreading fun throughout the world is my mission! I can’t please everyone of course! But by Jove I try!

Many thanks!

DotMatrixx now available on Mac! :D

Posted in .Matrixx, App, App Store, Apple, dot matrix, Gravitrixx, Mac, Music, News, retro on December 21st, 2011 by quantumsheep

Hello everyone, hope you’re all well. Busy I suppose. Very, very busy! ๐Ÿ˜€

My latest Mac game is out today! Hurrah! You can find it here!

The poor game was rejected by Apple because, rather obviously, you can’t start an app name with a ‘.’ (as in .Matrixx, as it appears on the iPad!).

Anyway, Apple were very good and approved the latest version in record time I think (it was just a few days – thank you, Apple Overlords!) and the game is now out!

Hope you enjoy the game! It features some awesome music by Amiga Agia, and it’s actually a lot of fun using a mouse to control your avatar – very precise and stuff! ๐Ÿ˜€

So that’s it for 2011 I think! Thanks for all your support, and I’ll post a summary at some point I’m sure!

Cheers all!

Progress! :D

Hello everyone!

While I wait for early access to Star Wars: The Old Republic, I thought i’d do some work ๐Ÿ˜‰

So what have I been up to!???

Well, with any luck, Gravitrixx for Mac will be out on the Mac Appstore tomorrow! (Friday December 15th). Fingers crossed, eh?

DotMatrixx should be available for Mac too at some point, if it passes Apple’s approval process of course! It’s been re-submitted, so now I’m just waiting to see what happens!

On a related note, A Merry Gravitrixmas is available for iPhone for free! It’s a Xmas themed version of Gravitrixx, and will only be available during the holidays! I hope you like it!

I’ve also submitted an update to Sunshine with hopefully some minor bugs squashed and an extra hat for the holidays! Yay! ๐Ÿ˜€

Look for that *hopefully* next week!

Finally, work still continues on getting Air Supply and Attack of the Kraken on the Mac, as well as possibly iPad. Look for those in the new year.

I’m hoping that next year will see Quantum Sheep games on the Kindle Fire, and maybe some other android based tablets/phones. We’ll see!

And, of course, there are new games in the works. Namely Air Supply – SOS and an adventure game of some sort!

BUSY BUSY SHEEPY!

So, that’s it for now. I’ll post some more updates as stuff becomes available!

Thanks for reading!

Another Sunshine review! And a trip away! :D

Posted in App, App Store, Games, iPad, iphone, ipod, Mac, Reviews, Sunshine on November 28th, 2011 by quantumsheep

Hello all, hope you’re well!

I just got informed of another Sunshine review from the lovely people at Macgasm! ๐Ÿ˜€

Here’s a snippet!

“Where Sunshine really shines is with its charm. The cheerful main character is guaranteed to make you smile. Its cartoon visuals are painfully cute and if youโ€™re not beaming by the time you finish, youโ€™re officially dead inside. Hear Us? Dead. Inside. From the silly collectable hats the sun wears (youโ€™ve seen everything when youโ€™ve seen the sun wearing a fez), to the gameโ€™s uplifting soundtrack, Sunshine has a fun factor of 30.”

You can read the full review here.

How lovely is that? Thank you! ๐Ÿ˜€

In other unrelated news, I’m flying out tomorrow to the good old US of A to do a little work on a wonderful game that’s due out soon from my friend Joe over at Firemaplegames.com

Joe made the awesome Secret of Grisly Manor, and helped Jake and I out with art for Gravitrixx!

I’m looking forward to seeing him again, hanging out and working on his next big hit!

Yay!

Next blog post from the states no doubt! See you soon!

Sunshine now available for your Mac! :D

Posted in App, App Store, Apple, Games, iphone, ipod, Mac, Shooter, Sunshine on November 25th, 2011 by quantumsheep

Hello everyone, hope you’re well!

The sheepy attack on the Mac App Store is well underway with Sunshine being the first strike!

The gameplay is really relaxing on the Mac – all you have to do is move the mouse and click after all! I hope others agree it’s a good translation!

You can find the game here.

It’s also still available for iPhone and iPad of course, so you can take a little Sunshine with you wherever you are! ๐Ÿ˜€

Look out for more Quantum Sheep games for your Mac every week till Xmas! *fingers crossed!*

Cheers!

Back to the Mac! A game a week till Xmas! :D

Posted in App, App Store, Apple, Games, News on November 19th, 2011 by quantumsheep

Hello all, hope you’re well!

It’s been a busy time here! And I’m embarking upon an ambitious new challenge!

I recently got a Mac Developer license from Apple, and I’m planning on using it!

So look out for a Quantum Sheep game a week, starting this week with any luck, leading all the way up to Xmas! ๐Ÿ˜€

Sunshine will be the first game (already submitted to Apple and hopefully released on Friday 25th November) followed by .Matrixx.

After that… well.. I’m still working on it!

Keep your eyes peeled, Mac owners!

Another review for Sunshine and a quick thank you! :D

Hello! ๐Ÿ˜€

Well, launch day for Sunshine is drawing to a close for me. Still lots to do to try and promote my little game tomorrow, but it’s been a good day overall!

Thank you to everyone that helped spread the word, and for all the kind words for Sunshine! It’s really appreciated!

As the icing on the cake, this review came in late last night, and is rather wonderful! It’s by arcadelife.co.uk (and we always worry about disappointing them as they’re lovely and know their stuff!).

Fortunately it’s a good review, with an incredible 91/100 on the scoreboard for Sunshine! I had to sit down and have a cup of tea to recover, believe me!

Here’s the review!

Thanks to arcadelife, 148apps.com, theAppReviewer, Twitter and Facebook followers, people that left reviews and ratings on iTunes and everyone else that helped today! It’s been fun and knackering all at the same time!

So that’s day 1… time for bed methinks!

Thanks again!

148apps.com reviews Sunshine! :D

Posted in App, App Store, Apple, Games, iPad, iphone, ipod, News, ProjectSOL, retro, Reviews, shmup, Shooter, space, stars, Sunshine on November 10th, 2011 by quantumsheep

So, the game is out today on iPhone and iPad, and you can find more details on it here!

I got a wonderful review of the iPad version from 148apps! It’s lovely!

You can read it here ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s so wonderful that the reviewer absolutely got what the aim of the game is – to make you smile like an idiot! ๐Ÿ˜€

I’ve always liked the site – our previous games scored 3 stars (Gravitrixx) and 3.5 stars (Air Supply) from them. They’re hard to please, but they’re fair!

But most importantly, they give someone like me the chance of a little exposure in the sea of Apps that are out there.

And for that, above all else, I’m always very grateful!

Hope you enjoy the review – it made me smile lots!

Cheers,

QS ๐Ÿ˜€

The forecast for tomorrow? Global SUNSHINE :D

Posted in App, App Store, Apple, Games, iPad, iphone, ipod, Music, News, retro, Shooter, stars, Sunshine on November 9th, 2011 by quantumsheep

Hello everyone, hope you’re well!

I’m very excited right now! The iPhone version of Sunshine got approved today, which means tomorrow, Thursday 10th November, Sunshine will be available on the app store for iPhone and iPad!

How awesome is that? ๐Ÿ˜€

I’m going to have a busy night, sending out promo codes for review and generally telling people about the game!

BUT!

I just wanted to say a quick ‘thanks’ to my followers, especially those on Twitter and FaceBook.

It’s always lovely to connect with people that play my games, either through social media or just plain emails and forum postings.

People are extremely kind, supportive and just plain awesome. So thank you all very very much!

It makes the world of difference to me, and I really appreciate it!

SO!

Lots to do! Look out for the game tomorrow! I hope you enjoy it! ๐Ÿ˜€

Thanks!
