2017-05-11 Kickstarter campaign started

Kickstarter – here we come. After lots of preparation we started our Kickstarter campaign and hope for lots of support from all over the world. Sadly Kickstarter does not allow doing this in multiple languages. Sorry to everyone not loving to read English texts.

2017-05-11 Demo finished

How hard can it be to make a demo of a game that is already playable? Harder than we expected. Especially when finding out that the current executable doesn’t work on bulk Windows 7 systems. That was a nasty surprise! Now we can finally take care of the last steps of the Kickstarter campaign.

2017-03-01 Nice backgrounds found

We found some ingeniously drawn backgrounds that fit perfectly to our vision of the game. So why should we invent the wheel again? We decided to buy those graphics and have something nice to add to the first versions. Thanks to David Baumgart for creating these pieces of art.

The game design document has grown to seven pages and it is ripe to be shown to the rest of the team. Everyone likes the idea and so we start thinking about graphics and programming.

2017-02-02 At the beginning there was …

A couple of days ago a friend told me about the mobile game CellConnect and I installed it and became addicted. Why not doing something similar for PC? Today I sat down and wrote the first page of the Game Design Document.
