Happy Halloween!

NightLights_SS_Halloween

I apologize for neglecting this blog for so long. A lot has been going on since Apple introduced iOS 9, and OS X El Capitan.

I have been working with the awesome people over at raywenderlich.com on a couple of big projects. I am happy to say that I am one of the co-authors for their new book 2D iOS & tvOS Games by Tutorials. If you’re interested in how to make iOS and tvOS games, you should give it a look!

I’m also a new member of their online video tutorial team. My first series is on beginning native tvOS app development. I’ll post a link here when it becomes available.

And Speaking of tvOS, I’ll be porting several of my apps to the Apple TV very soon! I can’t wait to see Spooked on the big screen!

iOS 9 and OS X El Capitan

I am aware that there are some compatibility issues with most of my apps under Apple’s new operating systems. I will be releasing updates to address these issues very soon.

See my post in the Support Forum for more details.

Have a spooky, but safe Halloween!

Cave Hunter Coming Soon!

 

CH_Title_iPad

New offshoot from CuriousCaverns, on the way!

I’ve just finished a new game called Cave Hunter! In this one the player takes on the role of Talon’s cousin, Nixie. You guide Nixie through a seemingly endless labyrinth, while hunting for food, and collecting bat booty!

What’s different about Cave Hunter?

Cave Hunter is a procedurally generated maze system, that is different with every play! Each level takes between 15 seconds, to a couple of minutes, making this game easy to pick-up and play at any time. With unlimited levels, the deeper you go, the more complex each maze becomes!

The goal is simple; find the exit while hunting bugs, collecting power ups, and avoiding baddies. Achievements, and Game Center support is available so you can challenge your friends!

If you’ve played CuriousCaverns you’ll notice some of the artwork is familiar, but there are new surprises as well! Given the maze algorithm, the view in Cave Hunter is top-down, as opposed to a side scrolling platformer. Cave Hunter is a stand alone game, and doesn’t require CuriousCaverns. They simply share a similar theme!

Look for Cave Hunter later this month on the App Store!
