Hey guys, again… long time no blog! We aren’t dead yet though. Still kicking, spitting, working and dreaming. In fact, 2013 is already shaping up to be a very exciting year! We updated the site to this new sexy format, welcomed two new members to the team, and we should be releasing 3-4 games this year alone!
I still believe there’s never been a better time to be an indie game developer. The scene is exploding, and the opportunities are opening up like never before. There are more tools to build with than we’ve ever seen, and more avenues to succeed than ever before as well.
We are excited to focus our studio on Multiplayer games of all varieties on mobile devices. We feel that multiplayer gaming is what makes mobile fun, whether it’s turn based asynchronous, real-time session based, hot-seat multiplayer, or even MMO games. And we are excited to be working on 3 new titles, each focusing on a different kind of multiplayer experience on mobile devices!
Our next game coming out is going to be called zTanks this March/April (hopefully). It’s a free-to-play massive multiplayer tank arena game in the style of BattleZone and bzFlag. We are huge fans of both of those games, and love the communities that have developed around them. It is our hope that zTanks will develop into a similar kind of community.
We’ll write a better post soon outlining the full feature set the game will launch with. Trust us though, it’s gonna be sweet! We are building it using Unity3D and Photon’s Cloud Servers, and using these tools we already have a fully playable online alpha version. It will be released to the public very soon, and you can sign up to test it out at: signup.zTanks.com. The best part is that it will be available on iOS, Android, and possibly even the Blackberry 10 as well! So there will be a huge opportunity to build a huge player-base.
In addition to this, we have two more top secret projects coming soon that we’ll be talking about as we get closer to releasing them. So stay tuned, this blog is about to get active again with lots of exciting news!
