Games featured in June’s Edition of Nintendo Power Magazine

Thursday, June 30th, 2011

One of the great things about being in the US for E3 was that we were able to get our hands on June’s edition of Nintendo Power magazine. We love Nintendo Power but we love June’s edition even more than usual. “Why is this?” you may ask. Well, because it features 2 articles on our upcoming games, that’s why!

Have a look at the Spirit Hunters Inc and the escapeVektor: Chapter 1 articles below. Just click on each image to make it bigger.

Developing Indie Games for the DS and Other Mobile Devices

Monday, June 27th, 2011

Another one of our GDC interviews has recently appeared online. This one is a podcast interview with the Experimental Game Dev Podcast Show (see our GDC Diary, Part 2). In it, Nic & Bruce talk about why we developed the myLifeCollected range for DSiWare and how these apps influenced the making of Spirit Hunters Inc. We also talk about Pop/Pop Plus: Solo and escapeVektor, and why we make games for consoles rather than mobile phones or PCs.

Pop Plus: Solo – a great DSiWare title for your 3DS

Tuesday, June 21st, 2011

Now that Nintendo’s eShop has arrived, there is a fantastic range of highly quality, great value DSiWare titles which can be downloaded on to your 3DS. One of these is our very own Pop Plus: Solo. We think it’s a great game, full of challenging content with 8 different play modes, 4  boss battles, bonus rounds, powerups and over eighty badges to collect. But then maybe we’re biased. We did make the game after all!

Well, Nintendo of Europe have included Pop Plus: Solo in their recommended DSiWare titles promotion, so they must like it. Also, games site Vooks consider it one of "The best DSiWare games that deserve a place on your Nintendo 3DS", so they seem to like it too. Not convinced yet? Well, Pop Plus: Solo also features in "Wiiloveit's Best of DSiWare".

If that's not enough to persuade you, why not take a look at Nintendo Life's review of Pop Plus: Solo when it originally came out for DSiWare. They scored the game 9/10, and said "It goes without saying that Pop Plus: Solo is a highly recommended purchase, there are very few other games on the DSiWare service that come close to matching the extremely high quality of this title."

Given these recommendations and the great value that the game represents, isn't it time you took a look for yourself? Go on, you know you want to!

Oh, and one last thing. If you do download it, or any of our other DSiWare software, on to your 3DS, be sure and rate it so that others can hear about it too.

As always, we really appreciate the support of our existing and new fans. Thank you all very much.

Nintendo Life’s First Impressions of Spirit Hunters Inc

Wednesday, June 15th, 2011

When we were at E3 in LA last week, we bumped into Corbie Dillard from Nintendo Life and we took the opportunity to show him our latest build of Spirit Hunters Inc. We had been working on getting a playable version of the game ready for E3 and this latest build is far more advanced than the one we had at GDC in San Francisco in March. We were delighted with Corbie’s reaction to the game and he liked it so much he decided to do a First Impressions feature for Nintendo Life. Here’s what Corbie thought. (more…)

Rip Ten’s Impressions of escapeVektor: Chapter 1

Sunday, June 12th, 2011

We went to E3 in LA to meet the major console manufacturers and check out the latest video game developments, including Nintendo’s Wii U. On the night before the conference we held a drinks reception for press and some of our closest Nintendo indie developer mates. Justin Berube from games site Rip Ten came along to our drinks and took a look at escapeVektor: Chapter 1. This is what he thought. (more…)
