Also this.

And speaking of iOS, Chicken Flingers is now up on the App Store, meaning SoB should be right behind. Also both games, along with Queen of Space, are now available for Windows Phones if anyone here is one of the five people that have one.

Cross posted from the making games thread:

Hey everyone. My company and I just announced the game I've been working on for the last couple months. It's called RPG Arcade and I'm super excited about it!



It's coming to iOS and Android at some point in the future and hopefully other things a little after that. We're also going to be demoing the first prototype at TooManyGames if you're on the east coast (I have it on good authority our own ShakeWell will also be going to the show). Don't be fooled by the visuals; the game is much more arcade inspired than on first glance. But if you've also played/enjoyed recent jRPGs, particularly from the PS1/PS2 era, I think you'll be very happy with where this is going.

I'll be looking forward to this game! (Thumbs up on the character designs!)

How much will it cost? Or has that decision been made yet?

Yeah, we're not readh to talk about the price just yet, other than it won't be free to play. We're shooting for very affordable, however.

Not game dev related, but I wrote a thing for Hardcore Gaming 101 on Bouncers, a strange fighting game/basketball hybrid for the Sega CD. It's not very good!

And now another article of mine is up, this one on The Adventures of Gilligan's Island for NES. Also not very good!

We're demoing RPG Arcade at South Jersey Geek Fest tomorrow, which I know most of you can't attend. For now, we just showed off a new piece of enemy artwork, so please take that as consolation.



This is the Scary Crow. Yes there were be no shortage of visual puns in the game.

Ah, so the Dragon Quest school of enemy design (not in visual style, but in pun-tential).

Excellent.

Karen's drawing and coloring, and her sister Kristin has been inking. Kristin also did all of the environments and the logo and their brother Matt is doing the pixel art* for the HUD as well as a bunch of the other art we haven't shown off yet (world map, special effects, etc.)

We have a family of genius artists, basically.

* I should note the only art of Matt's in the currently released mock ups are the action boxes themselves and the 'GO' message. The rest of the ability sprites on there were placeholders grabbed off a public domain art site. Except for the sword, that was done by me.

Karen has mentioned Dragon Quest more than a few times when talking about the enemies.

Second Design of Orion's Odyssey entry is up and it focuses on the tutorial, which is was one of the hardest things in the game to design but came out pretty damn good if you don't mind me patting myself on the back too much.

Posted this on twitter, might as well repost here - A sneak peek at the attract mode intro that will be attached to the demo we're showing off at TooManyGames this year. The full video should be finished and posted for the world to see by the end of the month.

Just added particles for the Forest level we'll be demoing at TooManyGames! Things are starting to come together fast so expect a truckload of new screens and info to come.

Lookin' adorable. I want to know the pun name of the oddish enemy. (Though actually it looks like those little round guys are a race with lots of variants, so that's cool.)

I'm hesitant to put a date yet. We're shooting for Fall at best, but probably closer to the beginning of next year.

Those are the Blewbs. They're in the running for being our mascot character once we kick marketing into full gear.

The latest Hardcore Gaming 101 book is out! It's about Data East games and I contributed a bunch of words about one of my favorite series, Magical Drop! You can order the paperback from Amazon, but there's also a Kindle version available as well, just not linked to the same page currently.
