It's 31 Decemeber, the last day of 2011 and it calls for a post. Or at least I do.
When you live day to day, you don't realize. But looking back, we released 4 games this year, starting with Bitejacker, 2 mini game of Tobe's Escape Series and ending with Tobe's Vertical Adventure on Steam. That's some crazy amount of work, and I'm glad to see that each one of them got us pretty good reviews from players and reviewers alike. Nothing quite beats the experience of watching a "Let's Play" clips on youtube and reading up the likes and dislike from reviewers.
It's a good year, but most of those work were actually completed in July. Eversince, we've been working on bringing Tobe's Hookshot Escape to the iOS, and if you have yet to realize from the earlier screenshot, this is not a simple port of the flash original, but a much improve version.
I'm not gonna spill the beans just yet, but we've gather and improve upon the feedbacks from players and our experience releasing it on the Window Mobile. The game now have much better controls, better balance, even more addictive, and lots and lots of replayability.
Not just that, but we also have a new upgrade mechanic (sort of), and enhanced artwork and animation.... well, not quite the HD enhancement, but bigger, better pixels. And here's a mini comparison shot :)
The game is completed, and we'll be submitting for approval, follow by some marketing and what not, so you can expect the game in early 2012. I hope you're as excited as we are, because 2012 is looking mighty fine right now.
Peace out, 2011!
