How lovely to see that! I had no idea!

I suppose I have to buy the book now… 😉

Progress! :D

Hello everyone!

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

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! 😀

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!

Well, it’s been a while!

Posted in Air Supply, iPad, iphone, ipod, Mobile, News on September 2nd, 2011 by quantumsheep

Hello everyone, hope you’re well!

Haven’t had much to report of late – still working on ProjectSOL, which will hopefully get an official name very soon as the aim is to get it done this month!

It’s a game I made for my mother, believe it or not! I won’t mention her age here (she’d kill me I think!) but I see her struggling with some of my faster paced games, and wanted to make something she’d enjoy.

As it turns out, those that have seen it have said ‘Oh, it’s a kids game then?’.

Well. Yes and no!

Yes, it has a very lovely look that’s kid friendly. Sort of. I think it looks lovely, and I hope the charm of the graphics will win over even the most hardened of hearts! 😉

The aim is to have fun, obviously, but also to pack an emotional punch at the end. We’ll find out soon enough how successful I am in doing that!

Oh, and it has hats! What’s not to love!

After that, it’s back onto Air Supply – SOS. I’m very excited about this one, especially as I just booted it up on my iPad and spent/wasted the next two hours playing it! The sign of a good game in anyone’s book I think! 😀

So, a busy few months to the end of the year. And I’m already looking forward to March *next* year. Air Supply 2, people. Air Supply 2.

I’m off out for drinks! Have a glorious weekend everyone!

Thank you, 郑大海

Posted in Air Supply, App, App Store, FREE, iphone, ipod, News, retro on July 4th, 2011 by quantumsheep

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 😀

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! 😀

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 ( 🙁 ), 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! 😀

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 😀

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 should really be working!

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

Posted in Air Supply, App, App Store, Apple, Games, iphone, ipod, News, retro, Reviews, sci-fi on May 11th, 2011 by quantumsheep


Hello all! 😀

Business Insider made a very interesting and fun post called “The Best iPhone Games You’ve Never Played” – and Air Supply is featured!

So if you’ve never played Air Supply, give it a go here!

Also, I’ve just submitted an update to Apple with GameCentre leaderboards added. There’s one for each colour available in the game, as well as an overall highest score leaderboard for Air Supply and Fuel Supply modes!

Hopefully it’ll go through ok! Looking forward to seeing everyone competing at last!

Wish me luck! 😀

Air Supply gets some Fuel Supply in version 1.3 :D

Posted in Air Supply, App, App Store, Apple, Games, iphone, ipod, News, retro, screenshots on April 11th, 2011 by quantumsheep

Hello everyone! Hope you had a great weekend!

I spent mine finishing off version 1.3 of Air Supply!

Yay!

I just finished submitting it to Apple, so hopefully will be with you all very soon!

Anyway, here’s a quick rundown:

Version 1.3:

New mode! “Fuel Supply”

A whole new mode! Spaceman Sam has recovered his spaceship, but wouldn’t you know it, he’s sprung a fuel leak!

*Your ship is constantly being dragged down towards the planet – keep your altitude up by pressing on the left hand side of the screen!
*Keep your Fuel Supply up by collecting the ‘F’ symbols!
*Look out for UFOs and Flying Aliens!
*Avoid the deadly meteorites – they cannot be shot down, so avoid them!
*Select the new mode at the bottom of the Unlocks Selection screen.
*Three new achievements to attain!

And here’s a quick screenshot of the new mode in action:

I hope you enjoy playing it!

Some exciting updates planned for 1.4 and beyond – stay tuned, earthlings, and thanks very much for playing!

A couple more reviews are in! And we love them! :D

Posted in Air Supply, App, App Store, art, Games, iphone, ipod, Music, News, retro on April 8th, 2011 by quantumsheep

Hello, lovelies! Hope you’re well! 😀

I got a couple more reviews in for Air Supply – and they’re both a jolly good read!

First up is a pocketgamer.co.uk review, which you can find here.

Some snippets:

“It’s fast, familiar, and fun, giving you everything you want in an endless runner.”

“Air Supply has enough charm and good content to make stand with the best endless running games”

And secondly, here’s a very ‘deep’ review from KillScreen. It’s beautifully written, and I really enjoyed reading it, and hope you do too!

Air Supply is currently available for iphone and ipod touch, here.

Thanks everyone! The adventure continues! 😀
