Weekly Update - 7/5/13
Hi all, another great week here. Mikeyo spent a lot of time on company stuff - planning an upcoming Facebook contest, getting things going for an upcoming Kickstarter and getting some affiliates set up for us.
Mikeyo talks about it in his weekly update video:
For the Facebook contest, we're still wrapping up the guidelines and prizes, but Mike has already laid out some great prizes. Keep an eye our Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/BealsSoftware) in the next week or two for more information.
The Kickstarter is a little ways off, but it is coming. We've talked with a few different artists and have an idea of what we need, I just need to get the prototype for the game finished.
We've joined the affiliates program with Amazon.com, ThinkGeek.com and Stamps.com. You can check those out on our website's shop page: http://www.bealssoftware.com/?module=shop.
Speaking of the website, we just launched a new layout last night. I didn't feel that the old version was laid out very well and it seemed very cramped, so we widened the whole thing as well as using a Twitter list's widget rather than our individual widgets.
I still don't have much for screenshots, but here is the first screenshot of the game:
It doesn't look like much as it is almost all backend stuff (save/load system, component system, game states, etc.) and UI. There will be more to come soon though.
Thanks and have a great weekend!
