Okay, wait

You may have noticed it. I haven’t posted any link for RoBits yet.

I realized I have made no effort at all to market the game. Marketing is crucial actually, even though I really don’t like doing it. I want my games to speak for themselves, not talk others into playing it.

However, this is the world we live in. Definitely the Google Play store is flooded with games. How will my game keep afloat in the sea of content? I’ve decided to market Chocolate Pinecone and my app for about a month before finally releasing it.

It’s not like I can’t start on my new app yet ;-).

Preparations for the next project

It’s funny how your head floods you with new ideas when finishing a current project.

Since I started finishing up on RoBits I’ve had ideas for loads of new games. Of the few that really stuck, there was one that kept evolving and growing into a finished concept.

Ever since I’ve found some awesome 8-bit Simcity-like graphics, I’ve wanted to create a game taking part in a city simulation.
I’ve always really liked business games where you have to take the city into account.

One inspiration would definitly be Pizza connection 2. A game I played alot when I was younger. In this game, location was essential! Place your pizza restaurant near a subway exit and the place will be flooded with customers.

Anyway, I want to create a business game, but not one that focusses on the money. Ofcourse, businesses are mostly about making money, but after making enough, the game isn’t challenging anymore.

I want the player to be focussed on a bigger picture. Like fusing with another business, starting a sister company in a new franchise, expanding internationally, or simply trying to keep up with the competition for example.

I’m thinking about calling it: The Business Challenge.

The challenge would be whatever the game challenges you to do. Owning a specific company within a time period, or destroying a certain existing company within a time period for example.

I’ve written most of my idea here.

It’s gonna look something like this:

Demo City

My first app released!

Hey guys!

I wanted to fill you in about my first app which has been released on Google Play.

It’s called Princess Rescue Run and is a fun, hectic, evasion game. It has a leaderboard for competing with friends and is just a whole lot fun to play (I even got myself drooling over the awesomeness).

I wanted to develop a simple evasion game with a different feel. My wife came up with the theme of a knight saving a princess and that just stuck with me while constructing the concept.

Anyway, here’s the link!

Be sure to check it out, but be warned! It’s very addictive ;).
