Blogs away!

Welcome to our dev blog. For information on who we are, please check out the about page.

My goal is to post weekly updates showing our progression throughout the game’s development cycle, as well as some lessons learned. For those of you interested in game development, I’ll be including a lot of behind the scenes video and pictures as well.

For our first post, I’m going to give a basic introduction to our current game, Gooliens. The premise of the game is fairly simple. You’re an alien on a mission to abduct cows. The player will navigate through levels, battling enemies and collecting goo pieces all in the pursuit of the prized cow. Once the player obtains the cow, they must take it back to the ship to complete the level. Players will be scored on time as well as rescuing fallen stars for a bonus. The game will also feature online rankings for those with an itch to compete. Initial release will be for the iOS and Android, shortly followed by Windows and MacOS (maybe even Linux?).

The amazing engine that powers our game is DT2. Tod has been developing this tech for well over a decade now. It has been used throughout the years for all of our projects, as well as many released products. You can learn more about it at www.smellslikedonkey.com.
