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!

It tends to be hard to get a large following when you only have a few pictures. Games with little to no graphics have the hardest time because the vast forum of gamers tend to be visual people. :(

Good luck and hope you are able to generate more images to increase your audience draw.

Thanksd! Yea, I need to get some more screenshots and such flowing, it keeps people interested and shows progress. We're getting to that point though; the script is almost done (Mike thinks he'll finish it tonight), I just need to catch the prototype up.
