Mochi London and SpaceIsKey.com!

Mochi London 2012 is this week! I can’t freaking wait! If any of you guys are headed there, do come and say hi, don’t be shy :)

When I’m back next week I’ll also follow up with a round up of the event, y’know, as I did last year. All in good fun!

So this year is a bit different too. Jay Armstrong will be speaking! To be honest, I don’t do much public speaking, I don’t think Jay does either. But it’s going to be pretty cool! Our presentation is called ‘So who are you trying to impress?’ and we’re really focusing on our experiences with ‘They Took Her’ and what we learned from it all.

 

So… Who are you trying to impress?

 

In other, pretty awesome news! Space is Key now has a website. It’s been long due to be honest, as I’ve always had plans to port it over to other platforms. But it looks like this may be happening sooner than I thought! I’ll update you guys as I go along, y’know I always do :) CHEQUE EET OUT! SpaceIsKeyDotCom

FINALLY! Space is Key now has a site, thanks to a good friend Dean Murphy!

Everyone. Meet Platcore!

It may come as like the biggest shock ever! Especially to those who’ve been following me for a while. So this has been in development for quite a while in 2011 and has had a crazy rollercoaster ride in the development process as I ended up quitting my job mid-development so I could work full time on what I love; Giving you guys content! And then the sponsorship process was a rollercoaster in itself of a few months negotiating and falling through deals so I’m like extactic to be able to release this. And I hope you like it as much I as did developing it!

You can head over to Kong and play it: http://www.kongregate.com/games/Slasher145/platcore

It’s on Newgrounds too!: http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/601069

OR! You can be cool; and play it on this site from the side>>

Give it some major love!

Explosions, lasers, more explosions and even more lasers!

I’m more than above average!

I feel like I have loads more to share with you guys with regards to Above Average Guy! So I’ve been away to Berlin for the last weekend to recharge a bit, and it was freaking awesome! Now I’m back and since I’ve been back; Above Average Guy has just been completely pumped with work so much, so we’re actually like so so close.

I’ve got to make sure all the levels play fluidly and like, that’s it! Hopefully we don’t have a mega time dealing with sponsors like there was with Platcore.

The loader for the game. Super manga style, y’know how the Japanese would want it? It’s just looking so nice because of NCH!

NCH done an amazing job with this intro scene, I’m actually in love with it. I may share it with you guys before the game gets released; that’s how much I like it! And Waterflame blessed it with some magical beats.

So you’re sitting there – watching some TV. Then suddenly! ‘HEY YOU! SITTING ON THE COUCH GUY’. I think that’s you?

Do you think I should record a trailer? I may do, but not too sure! Anyway, can’t wait to let you guys play it! Hopefully it’ll be soon! :)

Space is Key iOS Super Quick Mega Sale!

Hey guys!

Some of you may know it’s my birthday, so I thought of what better way than to give you guys a good slice of birthday cake – in the form of Space is Key iOS for free!

If you missed Space is Key iOS when it came out last year – it’s free til Wednesday. GO GET IT NOW! GO GO! Also when I’ve got time I’ll be updating it with all of Space is Key 2 and lots of bug fixes, just been super busy! :(

A bit of everything

Lots and lots have things have been happening over the last month! I thought it’d just be better to do a super big post and run through lots of stuff!

Eleventh Hour

So Eleventh Hour actually hit front page on Kongregate and on Newgrounds which is great! It’s always good to see the game up their – thanks to Tom and Greg! :)

It’s actually got a much better reaction from the Kong and NG crowd than it did from the Armorgames players. Which I find pretty interesting – A lot of the Kong feedback was pushing me to make something of this idea and pursue it more (Which me and Jay have ideas for, it’s just finding the time we’re both able too). I’m hoping in a month or two we’ll be able to sit down and nail something and not just a quick game! :)

I’m totally thinking a zelda meets fallout style. I mean, this prequel will set us up perfectly 😉 Lots of RPG elements; Crafting, EXP, Skill tree, nice inventory and quests. Time will tell for it!

Platcore

Wow – bet you haven’t heard this name for a while, right?! Bloody hell.

So yeah! After months and months of talking to a few sponsors and getting things sorted out – it’s all finally a done deal and ready to release (I’ve just got to add a little tutorial then boosh!) I’ll let you guys know when it launches though, as I do! I’m hoping it’s this week – if not, definitely next week!

Am I seeing things?! Platcore is ready for release?

 

Above Average Guy

It’s a shame this got put on hold for Eleventh Hour and then after that Platcore got sorted out! So this game has been on the backburner for a little while now sadly. BUT, I plan to pickup everything in a week or so and it’s pretty much done to be honest. All I’m doing is designing a few more levels to keep a decent amount of content in it, then we’ll be good for that!

I’ve got everything crossed that the process for sponsorship won’t take as long as Platcore! (Nothing in the world can to be honest!) :)

We’re waiting for the show to begin! HURRY CHRIS!

Mochi London 2012

Now this has turned in to a biggie! We’re looking at 101 registrations already – for our ‘Saturday only’ ticket, we’re completely sold out! I mean, it’s looking like it’ll be huge and so much fun! Can’t wait for it!

I also might be talking to – who knows! Me, I guess. But yeah, I’m thinking about it. I’ve got a decent topic that is interesting and I’m going to go for it (When it’s all nailed down, It’ll be released and also update the registration page on it)

Tom Krcha (Adobe) also confirmed to speak last week which is awesome! We’ve also got one more speaker due to confirm too, I’ll let people know on twitter and all that good social stuff.

So there are actually 9 tickets left as I write this – I urge you to run over there and get it all fully booked! http://mochilondon2012-estw.eventbrite.com/

If you made it to the bottom, you rock!
