Another year is upon us and with the ashes of GameCity7, the embers of GameCity8 are starting to glow. It will be a good few months before the phoenix will rise so in the meantime we have another years’ worth of GameCityNights to whet out appetites until then.
GameCityNights Nottingham was a blast! It was a real buzz being able to get out to a venue and showcase ReversE to a ton of fantastic developers and aspiring developers too :) The game was met with really positive feedback, with some improvement points suggested for the UI, Possible theming and grouping of levels, an easier build up into the game, and possibly more visual hints. Altogether the reviews have been positive so far and the fun game play is definitely there! This gives me the inspiration to continue to polish ReversE even further in the next few months!
It has just been confirmed GameCityNights Nottingham has given me the go ahead to come and showcase ReversE! The exhibition features talks from Maxis about SimCity, Cryteks Michael Barclay who will be talking about level design in CryEngine 3 and many other indie devs and designers bringing along fun games!
My friends at E+ games have kindly built Unity functionality into their website and published ReversE as a web game. Please go check it out, sign up and give them some love. Incredible people.http://eplusgames.net/games/reverse/play
Also for 2013 I am working on several projects and titles at the minute. Including http://www.facebook.com/KarmageddonChaos Karmageddon Khaos for which I am providing sound design and audio.
Rogue Republic http://www.indiedb.com/games/rogue-republic which I am (slowly) but surely working to mod and create armies in 0 A.D. engine for
Mahoo Space Shooter http://www.mahoogames.com/news.php?subaction=showcomments&id=1353919225&archive=&start_from=&ucat=2& Which I will be composing for.
Also over the Christmas/New Year period I contributed my take onto indiegamedevelopers.org by contributing my own interactive idea to a collage aimed at promoting the indie devs within the group. My contribution was the Indie Game Developers Slide Puzzle – Play Slide Puzzle here
I am hoping 2013 will be one of the biggest years yet for me. My aim is to keep delivering new, fresh, unique and experimental concepts. This will be possible with two projects of my own currently under wraps but in the early stages of development.

December 17th is my Birthday. Usually a time when people gift me presents for the achievement of gaining another level of old! However this year I have decided to give back! For the next 24 hours ReversE will be free to download for Windows, MacOSX and Linux! Birthdays are usually (supposedly) a day of happiness and joy! Well today I want to spread that joy with you all by delivering you what I hope will be a fantastic gift and something very special!
The Giveaway has now ended! Thank you so much to everyone who checked it out, for all the support I received in the last 24 hours and for being amazingly awesome!
Today I have made available a version of ReversE for Linux. It works upto the same level Windows/Mac versions of the game work and is also available to download at the same time as the Windows and Mac version for 69p!
The game should work on all modern versions of Linux according to Unity technologies! When you finish purchasing the game you will be able to download the Mac/Windows and Linux versions of the game!
