Breaking The Silence

Well its been a long time since I have updated this, things have been busy! After S.D.G.T's release I was offered a position with in Macclesfield so I moved down the country and settled down to recuperate my lonely looking savings. At first I thought it would be a temporary transition to moving to Cambridge (so me and Matt could work together) but the area has grown on me so I moved away from my first coke taking, amateur porn star, pot head flat mate (that was, interesting) into a place of my own.

That aside after the move we took S.D.G.T up to Dare Protoplay in Dundee and showcased it to the public to help us make a decision on the future of the project, which was basically do we move to iPad, PC/Steam or start a new IP. The weekend started horribly since our table was double booked and I was late getting there so we lost our spot for the day to another company. Luckily when we did get our spot on the second day our first player just so happened to be looking for new games to publish under their brand... and they loved S.D.G.T! So for the first time that afternoon we sat down with a publisher talking about our thoughts on the direction of the project over a smoothie and landed ourselves a partnership.

So hopefully by April 2014 we should have our first iPad title released under a new name, which we cannot make up our minds on but here are some ideas we are floating around:

Alien Onslaught (Sadly taken)
Space Defence: Alien Onslaught
Laeyron Onslaught
Alien Blaster
Ship Blaster

Well this morning I woke up with a surprise couple of emails from peer review passing S.D.G.T and I tried not to get excited but I could help thinking shit thats enough for the game to go live...

Sure enough its now live! :D Couldn't believe it, I have had to forget that the game even exists lately since its so frustrating seeing it fail and waste so much time but now I just don't care, so happy its all finally over!!

For anyone that hasn't seen me shouting all over Facebook you can grab the game here, hope you guys enjoy it!

Well today i woke up to the usual torrent of emails and drudged through them with the usual lack of enthusiasm when I noticed one from my mum and in my half groggy state I noticed it was something about our game. Turns out she was showing me that our game now had its first Google page of hits and I know this sound sad but Wow did that feel good!

It feels so good to see people talking about our work.

Only shame about it is that everyone is sharing an old video so I have been signing up to all these sites trying to get them to update the videos which made me realise I had yet to update it here.

So without further adieu I present to you our first promotional Video of S.D.G.T
