Week 1: Setting up the project

Hi friends, friends and family!

The first week of coding has ended and I feel like I’ve managed to put in some solid work. I’m staying at home taking care of my daughter and I have been able to squeeze in 1 to 2 hours a day when she takes her long nap around lunchtime. 

This week has mostly been about setting up a structure for the project but I’ve also gotten my hands dirty writing some actual logic. 

The following things have been done:

  • Configured game Center for multiplayer match making
  • Created most of the card comparison logic
  • Wrote tests to verify the logic
  • Set up the different states that a game can end up in

Next week I’m going to try to finish all the transitions for the game state machine and depending on how much time I have, I might even make an attempt to finish a very rough version of the game that can be played entirely from the code. I won’t be doing anything on the graphical side of things yet since I want to make sure that the code that handles the logic and the code that handles the graphics is entirely separated. 

Keep checking in to see how we’re  doing!

Work has begun on our next game

Hi friends, fans & family!

We are happy to announce that we have begun working on a new game. Chris has created a physical card game that we are now “translating” into digital form. What the game is about? Stay tuned in the coming weeks to find out… 

In the meantime here is some card art:

We will be aiming for release in early 2019 but it still too early for exact dates. Let’s just see what happens ;).

Back from hiatus

Hi fans, friends and family!

We’re back in action after a longer break. Life kind of got in the way with both me (Luis) and Chris going through major life changes. Kids and weddings tend to take up a wee bit of time… 🙂

We’re gonna be updating Rogue Knight soon and are also prototyping some new stuff which we will share with you as soon as we have something exciting to show off.

I’ll end this with a promise as well… We will be more active in letting people know what we’re up to from now on. Feel free to hold me to that :D.

Til next time /Luis

Currently studying free-to-play mobile games

Hi friends, fans & family!

I am currently looking at different games for different genres in order to really study what people play on mobile and what the highly successful games do that sets them apart… It is interesting to say the least, partly because gameplay is so different from the games that I play on a regular basis but also because in-app purchases and monetisation for mobile is a whole science in itself. I will post something soon regarding my general thoughts on the subject… Stay tuned.
