Merry Christmas and a happy new year!
Welcome to our Christmas Blog post. Let me start by wishing you all a Merry Christmas, The big day is only a couple of days away now. Already the decorations are up and there is a small pile of presents growing under the tree. Writing this blog post is one of the last things to do before I stop work for a few days, and spend some well deserved time with the family watching Christmas films and all the other associated festive activities 😀
As 2017 looms on the horizon, I’d like to take this opportunity to thank a few of those who have helped make 2016 such an exciting year for us. Firstly, everyone of you who has downloaded our software, thank you from the bottom of our hearts! Next is the guys at The Game Creators, Thanks for AGK and being so quick to fix bugs in it; And lastly I’d like to thank our tireless team of beta testers, The guys who get to spot all (hopefully) of the problems so they can be fixed (hopefully) before being released. You are all amazing, and without you none of this would have been possible!
We have recently updated out ever-popular night light app, ‘Best Night Light’. As well as a couple of bug fixes the new version introduced a couple of new features. You can now select the colour of the night light, and we have added a screen lock function to prevent accidentally turning the light off when holding your device. You can now also mute and unmute the button sounds from the menu.
Best Night Light has now been downloaded over 55,000 times, and a lot of the bug fixes and new features added this version were the result of feedback left by people who use the app on a regular basis.
We’re also happy to announce that Best Night Light is now also available to download from Amazon. There is a link below 🙂
As many of you are no doubt aware, our website is not the only place to stay up to date with all the goings on here at the Warriors of the Cucumber. You can follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and we even have a YouTube channel. It’d be really great if you could show your support by liking/following us and you guarantee that you won’t miss out on all the latest news and other goodies..
Feel free to click on any of the icons below to be taken directly to the relevant profile 🙂 And thank you for supporting us 😀
‘Newsflash’ is one of the handy little features built into our game template. When a Newsflash enabled app or game is run it connects to the internet (if available) and checks to see if there is a Newsflash, if so it downloads it and displays it. The download itself is tiny, only about 250 bytes, so even those on metered connections can rest easy.
Newsflash allows us to pass on a message specifically to users of that app or game. If you we’re brought to this post by a screen like this then you have already seen it in action. We plan on using it in conjunction with Social media to announce news, competitions, updates and the like.
The last, but possibly most exciting thing this blog post is this screen shot from our forthcoming release, ‘Snakerunner’.
The last few weeks have been spent tweaking the basic UI elements and getting a rough layout in place. As you can see, by connecting to Facebook with Snakerunner you will be able to see your buddy’s scores and share game progress and achievements.
For those who don’t have Facebook, or simply don’t want to log in there is the Skip button, although obviously the more social aspects of the game won’t be available.
There will be more news about Snakerunner as it happens, as well as the occasional #screenshotsaturday post, so remember to like/follow us 😉
And that brings us to the end of the blog.
I’ll be back in the new year with another exciting instalment of news and interesting stuff, but until then…
We hope that you all have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
