Flash Element TD 2 was launched on the 14th (a week ago) and has significantly increased the activity on the Collective, it is already coming up on its first million plays! It was well received in a Jay is Games review and has gone down a storm in Norway! All those long nights I guess. Hats off to Dave for creating another quality TD. Click here to play FETD2
Now that FETD2 is live we have been planning out our game output for the next few months and we have some exciting games lined up. Well we would say that wouldn’t we :o)
I am working on a semi-real time, multiplayer strategy game – code named ‘Minions’. It is heavily team based with up to 10 players per side and features upgradeable units, a multi-screen map and deformable terrain! It has some cute AI features in it as well. Hopefully it will go to Alpha this week and after play testing we will decide what kind of graphical theme suits it, and maybe even give it a name.
There are pirates ahoy on the Collective! We are in collaboration with a very talented independent flash developer who is working on a sea-based mini-rpg with a great setting and a cool fighting mechanic. It is our largest project yet and is several months away from completion but we hope to show some screen shots in the next few weeks.
From the same developer we also have in the works a smaller death match multi player game based on the same engine as the rpg. For players who like to shoot first and ask questions later. Should be wood-splinteringly fun :o)
After ‘Minions’ is completed I will be “relaxing” by adding some more missions to Desktop Armada and making it more accessible to new players.
We have booked our flights, sorted a hotel and are looking forward to the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco in Feb, time to see how real people make games :o) If you are going keep an eye out for 2 blokes wondering around trying to look like we know what we are doing :o)
