Shepherd: Mars Needs Sheep announcement

OK! We’ve got a few gameplay tweaks to do, as well as tighten up some teeny tiny things here and there but we are now at a stage where we can very proudly announce that we have nearly finished work on our major update to Shepherd!

 

This update, due out in under a month, will bring the following changes to Shepherd:

1) Greatly improved graphics
2) New sound effects and audio queues
3) Auto camera as default – making the game easier for beginners
4) Gun overheat mechanic to encourage chaining and deeper gameplay
5) Now called ‘Shepherd: Mars Needs Sheep’
5) Various bug fixes

So only a bit more tweaking to go and we’ll submit to Apple. We’ll let you know more as it happens…

New Shepherd:Redux art preview…

Art for the Shepherd update is now complete!  We’ve ended up completely re-designing the aliens from a week ago to make them look cuter and more smooth.  Here’s some of our newly polished UFOs for you to look at, along with our new background art…

 

We think it’s looking pretty nice!

But we’re not just making the game prettier – we’re making it PLAY better TOO!

We’ll tell you more about that in a later update – but if you like panicking and tapping on a screen we guarantee you’ll enjoy this update.  MORE NEWS SOON!
