Hello all!

Posted in Air Supply, App Store, Apple, art, Games, iPad, iphone, ipod, Mac, Mobile, Music, News, sci-fi, screenshots, shmup, Shooter, space, stars, twitter, video on March 18th, 2014 by quantumsheep

Hello! Hope you’re all good!

 

Life and game development has meant I haven’t been able to post here in a while, though you can keep up with me on Twitter if you like! I’m on there daily!

 

Anyway, I’ve been working on the latest Air Supply game – ‘Air Supply – SOS’.

 

Inspired by the very first game my brother bought for our ZX Spectrum (Jetpac – I got Tranz Am – both are AWESOME), SOS is nearing completion!

 

You play as Spaceman Sam in a mission from the Mothersheep to rescue her children! You fly around the level using a jet pack, picking up sheep and putting them in your rocketship!

When the rocket’s full, you take off to the next level!

It’s fun, honest! Part of the reason it’s taking so long is that I keep playing it for far too long when testing! ๐Ÿ™‚

 

A few stats:

  • 10 planets await!
  • 100 levels!
  • 10 playable characters!
  • 10 boss characters!
  • 10 music tracks to unlock!
  • 10 colours/ranks to unlock!
  • 12 Perks to unlock
  • Explosions! Space ships! Aliens! Jet packs! Oh my! ๐Ÿ˜€

 

I really have to get back to it, but here’s some screenshots!

And a very short video!

I’m excited to be finishing this with a release set for some time in April! I want to send out an SOS as soon as I can ๐Ÿ˜‰

Sorry again for not posting before. You’d have thought I’d have mastered this ‘time’ thing by now!

The game is DONE :D

Posted in Air Supply, App, App Store, Games, iPad, iphone, Mobile, Music, News, retro, sci-fi, video, youtube on November 14th, 2013 by quantumsheep

Hey all, hope you’re well!

 

Very very tired sheepy here. I am off to bed soon (it’s gone 9am here!), but the good news is the game is done, has been reviewed, and will be out tomorrow (November 15th!)

 

EEK! :O

 

I’ll keep this short and leave you with a little video I made of the game!

 

Hope you like it!

A balancing act…

Posted in Air Supply, App, Games, iPad, iphone, Kindle, Mobile, News, retro on October 18th, 2013 by quantumsheep

Hello everyone, hope you’re well!

 

A quick update from Sheep towers!

 

Air Supply – Infinite is almost done, you’ll be glad to know (I hope!).

 

Feedback from those kind enough to test it has been excellent, and has helped fine tune and tweak the game into something better than it was before! ๐Ÿ˜€

 

One tester suggested different control methods, which are now in, and others identified issues which I’ve hopefully resolved to everyone’s satisfaction.

 

The real trick is making it easy enough to be welcoming to new players, but to give hardcore players a challenge too!

 

This weekend I’ll be collecting data from the testers to work out an average ‘time to unlock stuff’. This will help make the unlock system fair I hope!

 

Hearing feedback from testers is always helpful, and I’d like to thank them all!

 

THANK YOU ladies and gents!

 

As a point of interest, my usual routine when getting feedback is this:

 

1. Get feedback.

2. Think of a million reasons why it’s wrong/not relevant/silly.

3. Stay up all night thinking about it and cursing the tester.

4. Wake up the next day and realise they’re absolutely right!

5. Make the suggested changes.

6. Grumble (possibly).

 

๐Ÿ˜€

 

 

There are still one or two bugs in the game I need to fix, and a nasty crashing issue which won’t go away.

 

The unlock system, information system, endings and Game Center stuff also need working on!

 

Thank you for your patience! It’s exciting to be almost done!

 

Have a great weekend!

“Air Supply – Infinite” Sam is back!

Posted in Air Supply, Android, App Store, Apple, art, Games, iPad, iphone, ipod, Music, News, retro, screenshots, space, stars on September 2nd, 2013 by quantumsheep

Hello all, hope you’re all good!

I’ve been beavering away at another Air Supply game!

Hurrah!

Sam is back, this time running round whole planets, trying to get to ‘The Void’ where he can pick up an Infinity Cup!

Here’s a work in progress screenshot:

asi_august copy

 

 

Gameplay is simple. The basics are:

Jump over aliens.
Tap anywhere to jump.
Double tap to activate a Smart Bomb (I think, therefore I am).
Don’t forget your AIR IS RUNNING OUT!

There are unlocks a-go-go, and an awesome soundtrack by that genius Yerzmyey, who writes his music on retro computers (the tracks were written on a ZX Spectrum/ZX81 with an AY chip).

No trailer as yet, but I thought I’d post a ‘Music Teaser’ video that should whet your aural appetites:

 

 

I’m hoping this one will be a universal build, with GameCenter leaderboards and achievements

Thanks for tuning in! I’ll try and keep you updated on what’s happening.

Release (Attack of) the Kraken! :D

Posted in Amazon, App, App Store, Attack of the Kraken, FREE, iPad, iphone, ipod, Kindle, retro, sci-fi, shmup, Shooter, space, stars on January 31st, 2013 by quantumsheep

Hey all! Hope you’re well!

The assault on non-iOS devices continues with Attack of the Kraken for Kindle devices! ๐Ÿ˜€

Best of all it’s FREE – forever! No In-App-Purchases. No ads. Just a free game for you to (hopefully) enjoy!

The game will also be going free on iPhone from tomorrow (February 1st, 2012) so iPhone/iPad owners that haven’t tried it can have it for nothing too!

Working on the Android version, also free, which will be out soon with any luck!

Hope you like it! It was my first ‘proper’ iOS game, and while rather old (can I call it Retro?) it’s still quite fun I think!

Toodles!

GO! :D

Hello all, and a happy new year to you!

Had a productive start to the new year! Currently I’m still working on three projects, but have also been working on porting my current games to other platforms!

Below are Air Supply and Gravitrixx on a Kindle Fire:

.Matrixx is also looking a bit nice on the Kindle Fire too ๐Ÿ™‚

Other versions I’m aiming for is Mac for Air Supply, and possibly iPad. Also trying to work out how to get stuff onto Windows 8 Devices!

Busy times ahead! Hopefully you’ll see the fruits of my labours over the last year soon!

Thanks for reading, and here’s to a fun filled 2013!

Toodles!

A ‘Captain Obvious’ video (obviously!) :D

Posted in art, Captain Obvious, Games, iPad, iphone, ipod, Mac, News, video, youtube on May 1st, 2012 by quantumsheep

Hey all!

Here’s a quick prototype vid for Captain Obvious!

I’ll let Shaz from Honeytribe Studios fill you in!

Developed during Game Hack 2012, a 24 hour game jam held at Pinewood Studios in the UK April 28th-29th.

24 hours may not seem like a lot of time to make a game. And you’re right, it isn’t. So we’re going to work on the game some more before we let it roam free in the app store jungle.

Developers:
Quantum Sheep: www.quantum-sheep.com
Honey Tribe Studios: www.HoneyTribeStudios.com
Old Kipper

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!

Progress! :D

Posted in .Matrixx, Air Supply, App, App Store, Attack of the Kraken, dot matrix, FREE, Games, gravitrixmas, Gravitrixx, iPad, iphone, ipod, Mac, News on December 15th, 2011 by quantumsheep

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!
