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!

Progress Report! :)

Posted in Games, iphone, News, planets, retro, sci-fi, screenshots, space, stars on September 16th, 2013 by quantumsheep

So, back in July, I mentioned on Facebook that I had three main goals to accomplish by the end of the summerโ€ฆ

 

These were:

 

1. ZX Spectrum game!

2. Text adventure!

3. Air Supply on Android, Kindle, Mac, Win8

4. Something I’m very excited about but can’t tell you!

 

 

Well, number 4 turned out to be Air Supply – Infinite (ASI) – which I am beavering away on right now, hoping to finish before the end of the month. Maybe. Here’s a screenshot for you, showing off the improved scan lines:

 

 

Numbers 1 and 2 are still on, and I’m hoping to have another look at them once ASI is done. They really are just for fun though!

 

Looking out the window, it looks like Summer’s over ๐Ÿ™

 

I’ve not quite managed to get any of my planned stuff done!

 

Oh no!

 

The real time-sink is testing. I’d estimate about 70% of my time goes on testing, the remaining 30% goes on actually making the games.

 

I’m sorry it’s taking so long. I’m absolutely terrified that there might be bugs in my games, and do my level best to eradicate them before they land in your perfectly manicured paws!

 

I won’t catch ’em all (there’s only so much one sheep can spot!) but I’ll be sending test copies of ASI out soon!

 

And then, soon after, you’ll be able to play it for yourselves! We’re talking a few short weeks here with any luck, as opposed to months and months of waiting!

 

Thanks for your patience!

“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!

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

Life is an adventure! :D

Posted in Adventure, Games, iphone on February 11th, 2012 by quantumsheep

Hello everyone! Hope you’re well!

I feel that recently, there’s been a whiff of change in the air. And not the small kind ๐Ÿ˜‰

My friend Joe has had huge success with his adventure game, The Lost City. I recommend it – it’s lovely!

At the same time pretty much, the lovely folks at Double Fine got over $1m in funding in less than 24 hours using Kickstarter. To make an adventure game!

It’s truly wonderful to see the support for such lovely people!

It would seem pretty darn lucky that I chose this moment in time to make an adventure game with “ProjectSAMMY”. It’s coming along quite nicely, and I’ll hopefully have new stuff to show you too!

I hope people like it!

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!
