This is #9 of the Weekly Update. Today some news on the release of Matchagon+, Muffin Munch progress and the 7DRL!
Matchagon+ 12th of March
We have a release date for Matchagon+! The 12th of Match, almost exactly 1 year after Matchagon, which we released on the 14th of March 2013, we release our small 2 day project Matchagon+. Matchagon+ will feature the improved gameplay with the minimalist UI of the “classic”. The game is a small experiment and will be released in anticipation of Muffin Munch. We will post a small release note on the 12th to remind you!
If you are eager to try it, grab one of the download codes for the App Store and play it now!
Muffin Munch approved, first update submitted
The first version of Muffin Munch was approved. After a rejection, where Apple claimed that we don’t have Game-Center features, because the tester obviously did not play at least one game, we got approved! We immediately submitted the first updated. When the update is approved we will start our open beta in the canadian App Store.
We are a little bit behind our initial schedule of releasing world wide in the middle of March, but we are confident that we will manage to go live in April! Development of Muffin Munch was slowed down this week because we had to do some more promotional work, where we did a small trailer and some more translation related tasks. We do have some more polish tasks and also we are still looking for a little bit of improvement for the audio.
The 7 Day Roguelike Challenge will take place from the 8th-16th of March. This year we will participate, which means the whole next week we will try to create a small roguelike that we can submit for the challenge. It’s a great way to try out some ideas we are kicking around for some time. This will also be the first time we are going to collaborate with Thomas Wellmann which is a super great Illustrator/Designer. For those who are interested we will maintain a small Tumblr for the 7DRL and will post some updates there.
That’s it for this week. Go out in the sun and play some Matchagon+!
