Hello everyone my names Matt and I'm new to this forum and I look forward to getting to know some new people with similar interests in this forum.

I have recently released an iOS game named Run Crab Run which is kind of like Temple Run but underwater and I did all the art work involved in the game.  I was able to implement both 2d and 3d artwork into this game and I think it worked for creating the underwater mood that we were going for.

Me any one other person made this app so I did the art and he did all the programming and We developed this game a bit different than everyone else did, we used a middleware program that allows us to publish on iOS and it also allows us to publish for android, blackberry and windows 8 mobile.  We also created the game on a PC not a mac ;)

Does anyone else work as an iPhone game artist or programmer? If so let me know so we can exchange techniques and pointers with one another along with some of the hang ups we all run into from time 2 time:)

Here is the link to the gameplay trailer


Also for anyone that wants to check out the game here is the link to Run Crab Run in iTunes its $1.99 which is about the cost of a coffee but it would go a long way in supporting our indie game company smile.png

Let me know what you think and if you have any questions or comments.

Would you care to elaborate on what middleware program you used?

Hey Dragonsoulj, Buster ,

 

We used a middleware called Marmalade. The code is purely in C++ and all development has been done on my old laptop. I used Visual Studio and the middleware ties in it's own emulator which hooks up to your IDE for debugging. Currently supported major platforms are iOS, Android, Blackkberry, Windows Mobile 8,...

 

We currently have the iOS version in the store and I believe next will be the Blackberry version.

 

Marmalade has quite a decent learning curve, so I wouldn't recommend it unless you know, what you are doing. However the just came out with some RAD tool, that's supposed to make things easier, however, I haven't had a look at it yet, so I can't say anything about that.

 

Are you developers yourself or are you thinking about developing a game? If so, which platforms are you considering to target?

 

In any case, we are always happy to exchange experiences conerning development/marketing of mobile games.

 

We are kind of new to the marketing thing and currently trying to get some exposure.

 

In any case, we would be happy if you could follow us on facebook or twitter

Mercurialol,

 

It's actually a real Hollywood voice actor who had some time to kill, whom I met on /b/ (don't ask, if you don't know this place, it's not a good place to hang out). He made a thread  in which he would voice act anything posted and uploaded it to vocaroo.

 

He was cool with us using it for our project, so that's how he got to be part of the game.

 

Would be cool to hook up with him, if he reads this, just be our facebook friend: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Samba-Panda-Studios-Limited/411874432199589

 

(Of course everybody else is also invited to join, we are currently giving away a few promocodes for the HD version, so at least there is something in it for you).

 

Many thx,

 

Chris
