Well done, and impressive for a first game.
I've put up a beta of my Game 'Six Wheels and a Gun.'
It's the linux port of an iOS/Android game, and would love to get some feedback on the linux build.
If you run 64bit linux, and want to...
In 2013 I hit 4 of 6 goals.
In 2014 I will
Publish a web game.
Publish Little Crane II (with soil sim)
Earn half of the income I had in 2013.
Reach 750 Twittter followers
For 2013 I intended to:
Publish an OUYA game.
Hit 30K OUYA downloads.
FAIL (15K only)
Hit 10M downloads (cumulative over all platforms, all years) for Little Crane That Could....
Has anyone had any experience with Samsung's app store?
It is being promoted by a "100% indie" campaign.
But it looks like the revenue in that store is pretty much zero.
A quick (possibly grim) reminder to my fellow indie game developers.
More than half of 2013 has passed.
I hope you are well on track to your 2013 goals.
If not... work harder!
I educated myself from age 12 to 18, and then got MSc in Computer Science.
At first I tought 'I can already program code, so why study CS?'
I was wrong in this, CS is the best foundation you can...
It was a human opponent, not AI
I just penned a write-up on a neat experience I had when playing my game against an online opponent.
It describes how I got surprised by a kind act of chivalry in my own game.
Trailer of my upcoming iOS game 'Buggy Bang! Bang!' was just released.
Let me know what you think of it.
The good news: really nice IAP conversion rate of 7% which beats Google Play and iOS App Store.
The bad news: download volume is pretty abysmal.
On Google Play, the game did 70K downloads on its...
Does anyone here have experience with publishing on steam?
I understand that they have this greenlighting process now.
And I suspect that chances on getting published are close to...
The Raspberry Pi port was really done on a 'dare'.
I don't think there will ever be a real pi market.
There are 1M devices sold, but those devices end up in robots and such.
In the first 4 days,...
I got approved today.
My game is now available on amazon.
I'll report back on sales figures later.
There was once a Little Computer called Pi. He was smaller than all the big computers around him. Pi wanted to do the work that the big computers were doing. He would love to run high resolution 3D...
Actually... I started to appreciate the really really bad reviews, because of the sheer humour value.
So I collect the worst of the worst.
I've seen some devs actually print them out on a custom...
I can't refer you to software.
But if you want the best possible quality and a lot of convenience, go the hardware route.
It is not cheap, but this device delivers the goods:...
Thanks guys, I started a port for Amazon app store.
The IAP docs are out of date and messy, but overall, it is pretty easy to do.
Once Amazon and OUYA are done, I may be tempted to investigate...
Sorry for the late reply.
You need to define the body position at the centre of mass, and never let them deviate.
Mind you, you can still distribute collision geometry around this...
Feedback is so valuable. Be it positive or negative.
I find that among a 1000 App Store reviews, there can be a gold nugget worth a fortune.
One of my customers wrote a detailed, point by point...
Hello dear colleagues,
Does anyone here have experience with publishing on Amazon's app store?
Some questions I have include:
Is it much different from a generic Google Play app?
The goals I set last year:
Add support for this awesome input device to the little crane that could for MacOSX.
Maintain my 2011 income (had a very good year).
So, are we going to post-mortem analyse 2012 in this thread? Or do we open a post-2012 thread, and then another 2013 predictions thread? I think Applewood should start them again. My 2012 was...
I use OpenDE, aka ODE. It is at http://opende.sf.net
I use it mainly because I have 7 years of experience with it.
If I had not had this extensive knowledge on OpenDE, I would probably have gone...
