Bullet Time (The End Of The World Party), action packed iPad platformer

Friday, July 29th, 2011

So we are back on Bullet Time (again). Our wall is currenlty completely covered in printed paper with 300 scenes of our biggest production yet.

We have made some political decisions on this game too. We have adapted the code so it runs on iPad and we liked playing it on the iPad so much that we will be releasing Bullet Time as an iPad only game. Later on the game will probably

be an universal game so people are also able to run it on their iPhones and iPods too. Right now we are progressing full speed and hope to be releasing pretty soon, with level design being completed (more or less) it’s now on to sound and scenery design.

Here are some caps to see what you might encounter in the game.

What’s up, any new iPhone apps ?

Thursday, July 15th, 2010

Well not yet, right now we are experimenting with the NyARToolkit for iPhone, it’s big fun:

What are we gonna do with this technology? We don’t know yet, right now we are evaluating what we can and can’t do with this stuff and perhaps something creative will come out. Most likely something in the category “Entertainment”.

But there is more, we are currently working on a major Monkey Swipe update, thanks to some publicity lately we are back in top 25 in category puzzle games in Holland. That is nice  too. So what will this update consist of, three more level packs all for the same In App purchase, much more free content and last but not least we might do something with the price. Also the levels will be more versatile thanks to Johan who implemented some more box2d stuff, what does this mean to you they Monkey Swipe player? Mucb more fun, even weirder constructions, swings, enemy clusters and much more gameplay, oh yeah!

See you soon in an App Store near you!

Btw we’ve also updated our website, you are now able to completely passively absorb all necessary info! It’s video….

Available on the Appstore (again)

Keep looking in the app store for this icon
Well this message is a little late becasue we were actually a little surprised by the quick Apple review, the first of may it was approved already. No problems! Nice work from us and from Apple. So we were really busy past few days contacting review sites, creating our free daily levels (we thought we had two weeks for this, not just one),  and finishing “review request” / “feedback” forms on the suport site, contacting everybody we know with an iPhone/iPod/iPad and encourage them to install our great new app!! But the great news remains we (fullscreen) is an established appstore contributor with 2 games (http://itunes.com/apps/fullscreen)

Oh yeah here is the good stuff:

Monkey Swipe, generating a buzz

Thursday, April 29th, 2010

Yep that’s what we try to do anyways, we have created a Monkey Swipe webpage here. This site is supposed to support our game, it allowes people to give feedback on our game, app reviewers to request a free game and it’s a showcase of what to expect, we also created a presspack with logo’s and game artwork and some kind of descriptive text, you can download it here. On top of that, today we changed our game studio in a little Hollywood by filming Appjuicer Johan while playing our game, it’s a demo that should get you folks all enthousiastic and stuff, so go buy it and check it out!!

App Store submission

Tuesday, March 9th, 2010

Yesterday we submitted our first game in the app store, you never know how long it’s gonna take before approval (if you get one), so we are now impatiently waiting and it already seems like forever! In the meantime, because just sitting still doesn’t speed things up psychologically, I’ve created a little teaser vid:

app iconAnd a support website that’s not yet finished but already open for public display, hooray!

So that’s that, now for some technical background, the game idea is a totally 100 percent copy of the flash version, but it’s totally rebuild in cocos2d for iPhone framework and the box2d physics engine. That’s basically objective-C en C mixed, a little tough at first for me but you get the hang of it when you see the progress of the game. The whole port took me basically a week and all the extra stuff, using spritesheets for the character animation, menu + credits implementation another week. That was including learning the cocos2d stuff, which by the way is a great framework with pretty good performance (via OPENGL). Even on the old (2G) iphone the app appears to be more responsive than the flash-version @ a fast pc.
