Alive and partly kicking
Despite Nadine and me visiting Karins place on La Palma once more, I spent a couple of days in Neuruppin. Great site, nice people, bad weather.
On the technical side of life, I got an iPad and together with Simon and Julian – two friends I know from the BreakPoint and Mekka Symposium Parties – we started to work on our game again.
About 5 years ago, we started work on Wings of Fury clone for Mac.
It basically started off again when I met Simon on Skype while I was completly drunk on my annual birthday party. I had to wait till slow itunes had imported the music I wanted to play and so I sent him a short message saying something like: “We need to finish our game on iDevices”.
A few days later we had chat about switching the whole thing from 2D to 3D graphics and a the next weekend Simon presented us a basic version where you could fly around, drop bombs. At the beginning of December the three of us met at my place and worked for almost 3 days straigt and got quite far. The reactions of people we showed the game that far are all very positive. So despite the every year x-mas stress and parties going on I am struggling ditching my head into building 3D planes, probs and stuff for the game. A website will be up very soon too… so hang in there and remember the name “Pacific Showdown”.
Here’s a very early preview of the game – actually the state before our weekend.
