Hello lovely people!

We’ve had another awesome Air Supply review over at technobrains.com

You can read it here.

Some choice quotes for you:

“The graphics in Air Supply are deliciously retro. And I’m not talking about that garbage where people draw really poor graphics and call it “old school”. It’s clear that a lot of effort was put into making the graphics look like they belong on a pre-NES console. What it proves to me is that such graphics could actually look pretty cool!”

“The bottom line is that this game rocks! As it is I’ve become strangely drawn to this genre of game, but Air Supply has kicked my obsession to a new level. I love the look, I love the music, and I love trying to unlock all the unlockables.”

“If you do not own this gem yet, go out and buy it now.”

We’re so excited and humbled by the overwhelmingly positive response the game has got since launch on Friday!

Thank you everyone that bought it, played it, enjoyed it, reviewed it and then wrote to us to tell us!

Cheers!

Air Supply is available on the App Store now, and can be found here.

Air Supply reviewed!

Posted in Air Supply, App, App Store, art, Games, iphone, ipod, New and Noteworthy, News, retro, sci-fi, shmup, Shooter, space, stars on March 8th, 2011 by quantumsheep

Hello lovely people!

The equally lovely people at ‘Allabouthtegames’ posted their thoughts on our latest game, Air Supply, which you can find here:

All About The Games Air Supply Review

Some choice cuts:

“For a game that’s supposed to represent a quick ten minute blast, it’s surprising how easy it is to soak up hour after hour playing Air Supply.”

“Levels are varied enough to make you wonder just how tough it can get later on, and what nastiness the alien world will throw at you next. ”

“there’s plenty of fun to be had for the single player with achievements a-plenty to find as well as the lure of each episode of jump-shootery mayhem.”

“It’s a great little game, and if your i-Device is already chock full of delicious little distractions like this, there’s definitely room for one more in the shape of Air Supply. ”

In additional news, Air Supply has been featured by Apple in New and Noteworthy ‘Arcade’ and ‘Action’ categories!

Thank you everyone for your support! We hope Air Supply finds a place in your heart (and iphone) soon! 😀

Quick update

Posted in App, App Store, Apple, Games, iphone, ipod, Music, puzzle, retro, Shooter on September 12th, 2010 by quantumsheep

Hello everyone!

Apologies for the lack of updates. I’ve been very busy!

Quantum Sheep, as a company, is kinda growing.

As well as an update to Attack of the Kraken, I’m working on a number of projects at the moment, including:

Project ‘1984’

Project ‘s’

Project AWE

Gravitrix

The first two I’ve been working on for many, many months now.

Project 1984 is a retro shooter, with some of the most awesome music you’ll ever hear from some very talented people! It stands a snowball’s chance in hell of being ‘successful’ thanks to its dated (did I say ‘dated’ – I meant ‘retro’!) look. It really will redefine the term ‘niche’ 😛

Project ‘S’ was started about a year ago, and has been put on the back burner due to time constraints on myself and the lovely guy who’s doing all the cutesy graphics. I may, in the meantime, make a quick ‘card match’ game for the iPad as an offshoot of the main game. The graphics already submitted are just wonderful.

Project Awe is so secret I can’t even tell you what kind of game it is. In a massive departure from the norm, the game is being made by a group of people that will form a subsidiary of Quantum Sheep. This means the Sheep will effectively become a publisher!

There’s business plans, cost assessments, team meetings (in the pub!), a development schedule, a game design… It’s all very serious! :O No release date for that, but I’m hoping we’ll have something to show people towards Christmas! I hope you’ll like it!

Gravitrix is new. My colleague Jake and I thought it up two days ago, and today we have an almost fully working prototype to play with which is fun as a proof of concept. Three test levels have been made, and Jake and I will share the level building duties. It’s a ‘quick’ game, but that still probably means a few weeks till release!

I’m hoping that Project 1984, Project S and Gravitrix will all be out by the end of November. These things tend to take time though. We’ll see what happens!

In addition, we’ve commissioned a new look website that we hope you’ll like. Don’t worry, all the info here will be integrated into it. Hopefully we won’t lose any of my musings!

So. Busy busy busy! Just wanted to keep the lovely visitors to this place appraised of what’s going on!

The few remaining months of 2010 will be very exciting indeed!
