Wing Kings Brand New Screenshot Blitz!

Wing Kings (working title) is coming along VERY nicely indeed.  We have in our hands solid proof that an arcade aerial combat roguelike is insanely fun.  But don’t worry, it’ll be in your hands in Q1 2017!  Here are some new screenshots of a prop-plane blowing things up 😉

Some little fellas here running away from your bombs

There’s your Commander, greeting you to the game.

2

Whoops, we had to eject here due to flying plane into cliff edge.

3

This is one of the enemy’s biscuit factories.  Better destroy that.

4

Bit of night time parachuting.

5

This is a well guarded factory, getting rather peppered with bullets!

6

Taking flak from all angles against this battle ship.

8

Some serious tank action!

9

A giant enemy airship took me out!

10

Well, at least I took a few tanks and some dude with me.

11

A little unsporting perhaps, this sort of carry on.

So there we go!  Next up, we’ll be putting in the other ecosystems and environments.  Just as soon as we’ve put in the BARON BOSS FIGHTS! Oooooh!

And don’t forget, if you want to help us choose the final name for Wing Kings, we’ve put it to a vote!  Check out our shortlist and let us know which name suits the game best here!

Some Mr. Fruits HD videos

Here’s some gameplay videos we took today of Mr. Fruits! The sound is a bit out of sync in the video, but it’s cool, it doesn’t sound like that in real life.

Oh! Don’t forget to set your youtubes to HD or you’ll not feel the benefit of the freshly cut out, high definition photos of silly plasticine characters.

Infinite State Games at TIGA 2012 – capers ahoy!

So, we had a great time at the TIGA 2012 awards. We didn’t win anything, but then we only entered two categories. It was absolutely hilarious seeing our game on the big screen along side all those other whopping titles, a memory which we’ll never forget.

It was a fantastic evening and we met loads of awesome, awesome people. The Stick Sports Ltd. team were ace, we got to chat to Gary Penn from Denki about TV detectives, and nice man from Edge magazine said he’d heard of our game! Hooray!

Lovely chandeliers at the Assembly Rooms in Bath

We know what you’re all wanting to know though… what was the food like?

Starter was celeriac with a pear and bits of blue cheese. It was quite nice.
Main was chicken with some potato. Lovely chicken, nice gravy. Charlie was particularly happy with the gravy.
Pudding was a really nice apple pie with a bit of ice cream, which is just what Barry fancied so he was happy too.

So even though we didn’t win, it was fun. We managed to flood the twitter feed at one point by orchestrating all our friends to simultaneously tweet about Frutorious. We also liberally scattered some fliers about encouraging game journos to support our tiny team and silly game. A few of them found their way onto the front of Future publishing but we have only the wine to blame for that.

Here’s a video of our evening’s highlights…

Other highlights included getting Bad Hotel’s nomination video soundtrack stuck in our heads (it was a spoof of M.E.T.H.O.D. Maaaaaaan but with B.A.D. H.O.T… Elllll.)
Also chatting to a lovely guy called George who made the lovely, zoney Cubes for iOS who offered to help us get our heads around Unity 🙂

Next stop – losing the BAFTAS!

FRUTORIOUS FREE FOR A BIT!

It’s the TIGA 2012 awards tonight in Bath and we can’t flippin’ wait!  To celebrate, we’re making Frutorious FREE for a limited time, so tell all your chums they can GRAB IT for GRATIS before 5th of November! C’mon, let’s see if we can break that elusive top 100 😀

Here’s the AppStore link https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/frutorious/id524952395?mt=8

BLACK HOLES!

In the mean time, we’re also busy beavering away on levels for the update! One of the new things that’ll be in the update are BLACK HOLES! Making levels with these are super good fun, and we’ve been banging them out on our lunch breaks at work and in the evenings.  Here’s a little video that’ll do a better job at explaining what they are like than I could in words…

THE BIG AWARDS QUESTION!

So all that’s left to do now is sit and wait to find out the answer to the question on everyone’s lips…  What food they doin’ at the meal? Charlie will be hungry after the long drive and I know what he’s like – he’ll want a bit of gravy.  Personally, I’m in the mood for a bit of ice cream!

Whatever is for dinner we know we’ll have a great evening.  Still hasn’t sunk in that we’re going!  We’re in categories with some really professional and amazingly popular titles, so for a game made by 3 guys with day jobs which has only had a handful of downloads this is a proper immeasurably massive whopping great big deal 🙂

GO DOWNLOAD FRUTORIOUS!

So yeah!  Please go share this, tell your palz and family, tell all your internet-chums and that woman you say hello to with the dog.  Impress hipster friends by introducing them to it, believe me, they wouldn’t have heard of it!

Here’s that link again…

Frutorious: Gameplay Trailer!

We’ve made our third and final pre-launch video. Three videos, eh!  That’s a lot of videos isn’t it?! Well it’s more than usual, but then this is an unusual game.  We realised that it needed that little extra push to get into people’s hearts and minds that one prod wouldn’t do, what we needed was an opening pre-launch triumvirate salvo of three very different videos.

Let’s talk about our three pronged trailer attack – our ‘Shonk and Awe’ publicity plan!

How do you solve a problem like Frutorious?

Firstly, the game has a light-hearted feel to it and a quirky vibe which is hard to describe in words, especially when you’re so involved in the game. That’s why we felt the best introduction to the game would be our first trailer ‘The Making Of: Frutorious.’ We wanted to get across the fact that we’re a focussed, passionate team who at the same time aren’t taking ourselves very seriously.  We also wanted to approach the ‘making of’ documentary structure with a much more playful style.

Secondly; the mix of felt, plasticine and hand drawn art is something we’re very very proud of, so we definitely want to show it off as much as possible!  That’s why our second trailer ‘Frutorious: Story Trailer’  focussed on the hand-drawn elements and set up the back-story for the game.

Thirdly, the concept of a sling-shot platform game with fruit, arcade elements, pinball, golf and 90’s Hip-Hop puns doesn’t translate well without just showing video of it being played.  The more video of people actually playing the game we can get out, the easier it is for people to understand what the game is about, which brings us here today with the third video  ‘Frutorious: Gameplay Trailer’.

As well as showing people what the game is like to play, it also showcases the sort of variety in visuals and gameplay that we’ve got going on.  We hope it gets about and people see it!

Beta Build Footage

With the release of Frutorious about a month away, we’re busy beavering away at it, fixing bugs, slickening up things and generally polishing knobs.

Here’s a video of us playing three levels from the beta build of the game we thought you might enjoy seeing!

The Making Of: FRUTORIOUS!

Hey everybody!

You know, people often ask ‘hey, how did you make Frutorious’

Well wonder no more! For we’ve rounded up the entire Infinite State Games team and made an in-depth, fly on the wall style documentary feature called ‘The Making of: Frutorious’

It’s a fascinating, and at times harrowing glimpse into the work that goes into making an iPhone game.

We hope you enjoy it!
