"EXTRA, EXTRA: Forum Lurker Creates iOS Dungeon Romp"
« on: July 14, 2011, 04:32:56 PM »
Hi Everyone,

So this is what I do everyday, we're announcing it today and it should be out by the end of August. I hope you like it, it's my first really big title since I left BioWare and started my own company.

it better have intricate dialogue trees and believable characters.

and unfulfilling optional sexual encounters.

Looks very intriguing; sounds like a mix between Diablo and a Bioware RPG with the Torchlight graphic style. I wish I could play it but unfortunately  I don't own an iPhone. Still, I wish you success with the release.  :)

Thanks Ross! Yes, we're excited. We wanted to put a proper story driven game on the iPhone and I think we're doing it. It's simple, but that suits the device and it means we can finish it. I did all the art and animation and my programmer made the engine himself. We have a part time designer who helps us with the gameplay. Like I said before, listening to your podcasts inspires me!

@Kroack - Yes, you will be very sexually unfulfilled with this game. Glad we could help. Yay!

We're @cedarhillgames if anyone wants to follow us.

Oh, and we're making an Android build too, but that will release later.

Nice looking gameplay for the format. I'll have to wait for the Android version.

BTW, if you'd like to see our first game from last year, it's called Pistols at Dawn. Where else can you pistol duel a bum on the street for his whiskey? It has two different endings! Only a dollah! (end advertisement)

so, im not sure how well your game is selling (because i dont play videogames), but there is another podcast out there called Videogame Hotdog and they are pretty much divoted in playing games that are on the ipod/ ipad and what not. You should try and contact them and see if they will review your game on their podcast. They cater to a lot of people who play the game Kingdom of Loathing (you should check it out), it might add more potential buyers to your game
