Trying out this new service epocu.com

After a redditor’s suggestion I found out about this new service called epocu.com, that helps with marketing your game through a new interesting idea. It is something like kickstarter but swapout money with social reach.

So what you basically do is create a project page and then set a goal number of supporters and a target date. A supporter is someone that will agree to have a post made (that he sets) on his social network on the target date. However that is only going to happen if the project achieves the goal number of supporters, otherwise nothing happens.

This way you can have a boost in your social reach on the day you release your game. I find it a very smart idea.

Bellow you can find my project page on epocu.com and a post I did on Reddit. If you like be a supporter!

FlyCraft Herbie: Crazy Machines Teaser [VIDEO]

So the new game is “FlyCraft Herbie: Crazy Machines”. It is a FlyCraft spin off where you get to fly some premade vehicles that were inspired by players creations.

Below you can see the small teaser I prepared just to get you started:

The game will be released some time next week on BlackBerry, iOS and Android. If you want to be notified about the release, please go ahead and sign up to the mailing list.

See you!

Second FlyCraft mini-game coming…

FlyCraft Herbie Coming

FlyCraft Herbie Coming

Summer is peaking here in Greece, the heat is becoming unbearable, but game developement is still strong. I have been secretly plotting another come back for Herbie and Mollie since the release of Flappy Herbie (or FlyCraft Herbie on some platforms).

Unfortunately, with all the work I had lately, it took a little longer than I expected, but do not despair. The game is already in the hands of a very small group of elite beta testers, and the release is close.

FlyCraft got released, we have the dollar!

That is right! We managed to do the release yesterday and we even got the dollar (we are actually #1 Top Paid Game at the moment I write! [boast]way over Angry Birds =D[/boast] . You can check out our October Challenge entry here:

FlyCraft – October Challenge Entry

It was a roller coaster ride to develop this game, you know, the crazy ones! Me and Thanasis managed to gain so much experience during this month than hardly any other process I can think of can provide.

The fact that the game we made was so well received by the gamers was the topping of the cake. Such a great feeling, after a month of long nights of work! A few hours after the release, we were receiving this kind of reviews on AppWorld:

“Fun game, gets your creative mind going.” 5 stars
“This is a fun game if you have a few minutes to spare & want something to do. At $1.99 you can’t go wrong….now if you will excuse me I have got to get back to the game. I’m trying hard to get “Herbie” to fly further then 200cm….I keep getting so so close lol BTW that reminds me. This game comes with Scoreloop integration so you can compete with your friends :)” 5 stars
“This is a great game and logs of original fun. Looking forward to more materials to smash on the landing pad. Great original concept!” 5 stars
“Fun game, gets your creative mind going.” 5 stars

The list can go on and on! We are so humbled by these people.

We have updated the game’s website with the launch trailer. We hope you will like it as much as we do.

The plan from now on is to add in the game all the cool features we left out due to the time constraint of the challenge. Some of the things we left out with a cold heart were the instant replay system that will allow you to view your flights again but also to share them with friends, the ability to save multiple crafts and challenge friends to fly your crafts and do better, and lot more stuff that I will not reveal at the moment! 😉

Thanks again everybody it was a great experience we all shared here! Good luck to all the contenders!
