Hello everyone!

Sorry for the lack of updates. I’ve been working on Sunshine (!) trying to get it just the way I want it. It’s coming along ok. I’m *hoping* to have something for the testers this weekend.

But then I’ve been saying that for a few weeks now :O

Sorry!

To tide you over, here’s another work in progress screenshot.

Again, it doesn’t give much away, but I hope it intrigues/charms/scares you (delete as applicable!).

Keep looking for the sun! πŸ˜€

Sunshine – Here comes the Sun! :D (formerly ‘ProjectSOL’)

Posted in App, App Store, Games, iphone, News, ProjectSOL, science, screenshots, Shooter, Sunshine on September 9th, 2011 by quantumsheep

Hey everyone!

So, I got some art back from Damien who’s done a lovely job and managed to pretty much match what my friend Dan did art wise for ProjectSOL.

I’m now confident the game’ll get finished! And soon! Yay!

I didn’t want to announce the title – “Sunshine – Here comes the Sun” till I knew I’d be able to finish it!

No ‘proper’ screenshots yet, but here’s one of the title screen as it stands right now πŸ™‚

Cheers, and I’ll update with more details when I can!

A birthday :D

Posted in App, App Store, Apple, Games, iphone, ipod, News on September 8th, 2011 by quantumsheep

Hello everyone!

While getting together a lot of horrible accounts/tax stuff I realised that Quantum Sheep, as a fully fledged company, turned two this week.

Yay!

It’s been a very difficult two years if I’m honest, and one thing has become clear:

If I didn’t love doing this, I’d have given up a long, long time ago.

So, apologies. You’re stuck with me for now! πŸ˜€

I’ve learnt a huge amount in those two years. Most importantly, I’m *still* learning. And having a blast. So all is good!

What’s next? Well, I’m hoping to officially announce ‘ProjectSOL’ this month – and maybe have it out by the end of September / start of October.

Then it’s all hands on deck for Air Supply: SOS, hopefully out before the end of the year. It’s an iPad/Mac game, but I’m seriously thinking of making an iPhone version too. I’ll see how the game handles on a smaller screen and make a judgement call once I get back into it.

Next year will hopefully see Air Supply 2 come out (I’m hoping for a March launch – a year after the original Air Supply came out. It’ll be a pretty huge undertaking. I don’t know if I can do it, but I’ll give it a good go!

But enough about me! I’d just like to thank everyone that has helped me out over the last two years, be it someone that’s done art for me, music, code help or just advice/support. Far too many to mention, but every little helps, and it’s always hugely appreciated! Cheers!

Secondly, I’d like to thank anyone that’s tried one of my games out. I’m grateful that you gave me a chance, and I really hope you enjoyed your game! Thanks! πŸ˜€

So – looking forward to the 3rd birthday already! Wonder what will happen in a year…

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

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!

πŸ˜€

.Matrixx heading to an iPad near you!

Posted in .Matrixx, App, App Store, Apple, dot matrix, iPad, Music, screenshots on July 11th, 2011 by quantumsheep

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!

Thank you, 郑倧桷

I just wanted to say ‘thanks’ to 郑倧桷 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 郑倧桷’s opinion, he gave the game 5 Stars, and I quote:

εˆζ˜―δΈ€δΈͺεƒη΄ ζ€€ζ—§ι£ŽοΌŒIOS平台万岁!

That’s awesome! Thanks 郑倧桷 πŸ˜€

.Matrixx on the way…

Posted in .Matrixx, App, App Store, dot matrix, Games, Gravitrixx, iPad, Music, News on June 29th, 2011 by quantumsheep

Hey all, hope you’re well!

I’ve been working on .Matrixx (dotmatrix) for over a month now, and it’s nearly done!

Nearly!

I’m just waiting on some art for the unlockable backgrounds and player avatars!

Soon as I get them, I’ll be submitting to the app store – but the release date is likely to be July 16th (to allow for Apple review, and to avoid the inevitable ‘big boy’ sales over July 4th).

The game’s an endless collect/avoid ’em up for the iPad – and it’s bloody addictive, even if I do say so myself!

For now, here’s the splash screen!

A thank you to Japan, and a new game to boot!

Posted in Air Supply, App, App Store, Apple, Games, Gravitrixx, iPad, iphone, ipod, retro on June 14th, 2011 by quantumsheep

Hello everyone! Hope you’re all well!

Just wanted to let people know that I’ve been working on an iPad game recently and it’s shaping up very nicely!

I’m hoping to get a build out to a few testers over the weekend, if not before, with a submission to Apple soon after.

It’s called .Matrixx (DotMatrix) and it’s a ‘prequel’ of sorts to Gravitrixx, the Tron inspired puzzle game.

It has a similar look, but plays completely differently as it’s an ‘endless’ survival game!

A high score is the name of the game here, with Game Center support, and I’m just adding some unlocks and achievements too.

The soundtrack’s pretty special as well, as you’d come to expect from little old me! πŸ˜€

More details to come soon!

In addition to all this, Air Supply is still doing reasonably well for a game that’s now over three months old! Bless it! I hug it every night to say ‘thanks’!

And I’d like to say ‘thanks’ to everyone who’s tried the game out! It really means the world to me that so many people have enjoyed the game!

Indeed Japan, in particular, seems to have taken Air Supply to their hearts! As I write, it’s still in the Japanese charts, and that is just simply awesome!

Mainly because I don’t speak any Japanese ( πŸ™ ), and therefore can’t really ‘market’ the game there.

I imagine it’s just word of mouth, so thank you, Japan! It’s very much appreciated!

More news soon! πŸ˜€

GameCenter comes to Air Supply!

Posted in Air Supply, App, App Store, Apple, Games, iphone, ipod, Music, retro, sci-fi, Shooter, space on May 18th, 2011 by quantumsheep

“Finally!” I hear you exclaim!

Indeed!

My little game now has GameCenter. A whole new world of addiction for seasoned Air Supply players, and a nice incentive for new players as they unlock colours!

I did something a little different. The scores submitted to GameCenter are based, of course, on how far you run. But there are leaderboards for every colour, for both Air Supply mode and Fuel Supply mode πŸ˜€

Additionally, these two modes have an ‘overall’ score. So whichever colour’s your favourite that you like to play with, you’ll get a score for. And if it’s the highest score of all the colours unlocked, that will be put into the overall score for that mode!

It’s already got me addicted and playing my own game more and more trying to beat people’s scores when I shouldΒ really be working!

Thanks for playing, and I hope you all enjoy it!
