November’s news post..
The night of the Supermoon is upon us, it’s the closest the Moon has been to the Earth for nearly 70 years, a mere 221,524 miles away. All around the world people are enjoying the lunar spectacle, even here in the UK, where unfortunately the British weather has somewhat spoiled the sights by being cloudy and miserable. My Girlfriend is a keen astronomer and we were hoping to get the telescope out, but even without it we did get to see some fairly epic views of the moon, albeit through breaks in the cloud.
Anyway, I’m back inside in the warm now with a steaming cup of tea to warm my fingers before we carry on with what’s been happening here at the Warriors of the Cucumber. 🙂
Colour Name Quiz Advance
First of all I would like to thank everyone who has downloaded CNQA, According to the Store analytics it’s been downloaded worldwide, from The US, through the UK, Somalia, and India! I’d also like to thank our indispensable team of Beta testers who have been playing CNQA non stop for the last month trying to iron out all the bugs.
After some feedback from users, we have pushed out an update for CNQA. This update addresses a couple of bugs which seem to have slipped through the beta testing process as well as introducing a new stats screen to allow you to review your answers from the last game.
If you’ve not yet played it, you should head over to the Google Play Store and download it
Amazon App Store
We are currently getting ready to bring our range of apps and games to the Amazon App Store. We’re working on creating Amazon App Store ready files for uploading (Although this has unfortunately been delayed as we wait for a bug fix in the software we use.) and getting the store pages ready.
We hope to have all this done before December, bug fix allowing. More news on this as it happens.
What with the release of the Sony & Samsung VR Headset, and of course the Oculus Rift it seems that Virtual Reality is getting one step closer to becoming a household everyday thing. Although I imagine it’ll be a long time yet before we see anything close to James Halliday’s OASIS from Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One.
Google Cardboard is a low-cost VR headset solution designed to work with Android phones, and we are hoping to lay hands on one soon with the view of exploring the potential for developing immersive VR/AR games. Exciting times indeed.
We’ve written a ‘Cardboard’ on the Christmas list, and fingers crossed that the man in the red suit thinks we’ve been good this year.
And that brings us to the end of another news update. I’m going to sneak outside again and hope that the clouds have broken a little. As always, stay tuned for more news and updates as they happen.
Until next time.
