Space is Key @ PAX Prime!

You read it correctly, super exciting news!

So Space is Key is going to be at PAX Prime with the very fine folk at Playvue. You can check it out here http://pax.playvue.com/

This is super cool news that it’ll be there for you to play, I’ve changed the build a little and you can post your scores to twitter fine now so if you’re going,  post your score and I’ll see it and tweet you back :)

It’s a huge shame I can’t fly out though as I’d loved to have been there and man the booth (It’s always amazing speaking with everyone and getting involved with you guys) but I’ve not been in the best of health and after an operation lately I’m sadly unable to head out! BUT if you’re going, you have to throw me a tweet at @ChrisJeffGames and let me know, I might give you a Space is Key iOS promotional code! Who knows.

Oh yes, Space is Key is at PAX Prime baby!

In other news though! I’ve finished ‘Above Average Guy’ and also another cheeky little project that I’m going to announce pretty soon as it’s got a sponsor now. But it’s really cool and I know you’ll love it.

Really excited that ‘Above Average Guy’ finally got completed as I actually benched this project months and months ago, probably late last year. And I feel super bad for benching it, but it was for cool stuff too, I promise. Regardless, it’s finished now so hopefully you guys can be playing it next month!

It's great to be 100% on it actually. Hopefully you'll all enjoy it as much as I have been making it when it launches!

Over the weekend I also made a quick project with Skybase for Ludum Dare however with a tonne of other work on, it didn’t get finished, but it’s so close! SO, the plan is to polish and spice it up a little, then hopefully get it a release. At heart, this is a avoid and collect style game, coupled with some beautiful abstract art. The concept is you’re a square growing in to a rainbow, it makes sense…

It even has a name, that's how much we did. Sadly couldn't finish it in time for the competition though!

As you can see, this little project is super abstract and I love how Skybase handled it. It's looking beautiful!

Space is Key now on Google Play, Amazon App Store!

Hey guys. A quick update for me to release something that has been a big part of me for a bit. Space is Key is now hitting Android via Google Play (Coming to Samsung Store very soon too) as well as the Amazon App Store for you kindle goodness! AWWWW YEAH!

I’ll keep this short, but yeah I’m really excited to get this out the door :)

But chris. What have you done to the app now?!

– Now using Adobe AIR! – Which means I’m finally targeting Android!

– All of Space is Key 2 levels (That’s an extra 58 levels)

– A whole new “hell mode” which is a challenge mode consisting of levels to drive you to the edge! (First challenge has 30 levels. Will be more challenges coming soon too!).

– Universal. Get once and download on your phone or tablet with out the need for extra versions!

– Bug fixes. Most of the bugs on 1.0 were due to me not knowing Objective-c well at all, so these should all be wiped out!

– No Game Center. Sadly removing this due to leaderboards full of cheats and I have no way to control this but I’ll add Achievements in a later update!

– 131 levels of action packed gameplay now!

– A whole new “hell mode” which is a challenge mode consisting of levels to drive you to the edge! Which will be updated with more in the future.

Do you have the pixels to challenge hell?

GDC/FGS and not so secret super cool podcast!

GDC & FGS!

That’s right! I’m at FGS5 and GDC13 in March. If you’re going and want to meet up throw me a message on the contact, always up for meeting fellow developers or publishers/sponsors. If I’ve worked with you, it’ll be even better to put a face to a name! :)

I don’t bite! Honestly.

It’s going to be really cool as I’ve never actually been to the States before but wanted to so TICK! That’s off the list. I’m heading over with Jay Armstrong (Doubt you’d know him, he made Super Adventure pals) and JIMP (Really doubt you’ve heard of Sushi Cat), so that alone is a concoction of mayhem, we’re going to make a good holiday of it by not drinking, no parties and just staying in our hotel for the 10 days.

I’m a bad liar, that’s definitely not going to happen!  We’re even make a game on the way there. PlaneJam style!

Super indie pals

I knew I had to do the art for the website. I mean, I’m super talented at drawing (I ABSOLUTELY SUCK! HELP ME)

A podcast?!

I heard you’re making a podcast though, Chris? HOW DO YOU KNOW! That was a secret.

Seriously though it’s been something on my mind for a while and I think we can really nail it, so I pitched the idea to James and Jay. The ball has already started rolling and we’re looking at launching our first episode of the podcast once we’re back from San Francisco. It’s going to be called ‘Super Indie Pals’ purely because I hate the name of ‘Super Indie Pals’ and thought it needed to be stolen. Seriously, it’s a great name and it describes us all as a group. It’s a good nod to Jay too 😉

So the whole idea is to talk about games we’re playing, tips and tricks, a load of talk about game development cycles, what we’re currently working on or doing that’ll hopefully be of interest to everyone. My plan is to also try and get someone from the industry involved every episode to ask them a bunch of questions too. I’m really excited about this venture and can’t wait to show you guys.

Did I mentioned our beloved Waterflame is doing the jingle too?! I’d listen just for that to be honest.

Platcore stuff!

Psssssst. Did you see Platcore go live on Miniclip this week? If not, you should check it out. This is really cool and in relation to my last post, it’s kind of a proud feeling in my career to get something of mine on their due to me living on that site as a kid!
