It’s been a while since our last update, but we’ve been very busy!


Jelly Reef INDIGO
First of all, we showed Jelly Reef for the first time at INDIGO 2014, organized by the Dutch Game Garden. The showcase was full of awesome Dutch games, and we got a lot of feedback on Jelly Reef. This inspired us to do some major changes with the game – more on that later in this post.

Select/Start/Play & Viborg Games Expo

Eline had a short trip to Viborg in Denmark for the Select/Start/Play conference to give a talk about the development of Bounden. She also showed the game at the Viborg Games Expo, which had a lot of super cool original and experimental games! The organization also made this super cute Game Oven logo out of cardboard. Thank you Emil, Anchel & Alexander! <3

Announcing Jelly Reef

written by Eline on September 11th, 2014 - No Comments - #Jelly Reef

Jelly Reef

Today, we can finally announce the game we’ve been working on past few months: Jelly Reef!
In the Jelly Reef, you guide a bunch of jellyfish through a colorful ocean. You control the flow of the ocean by swiping your fingers.

You start near the surface, trying to get as many jellyfish as possible down to the bottom of the ocean to reproduce. Along the way, you come across lots of sea creatures in need of your help.

At the moment, we’re prototyping lots of cool scenarios, figuring out what’s fun to put into the game, and of course, making loads of art. Our artist Rumena made the beautiful concept art you can see above!

Jelly Reef will release on Windows Phone end of 2014. iOS and Android will follow later in 2015.

Bounden is out on Android! (full technical story inside)

Bounden is a game in which two people rotate a phone for which we make use of the gyroscope to track the phone’s orientation. If you read our previous article, you know that we ran into some gyroscope issues on Android devices and were forced to delay the launch of Bounden on Android. Now, a month later, and thanks to genuine support from fans and a company called Xsens, we are proud to announce that Bounden is available on the Google Play Store now.

In short, we were lucky to solve most of the gyroscope issues. Xsens is specialized in motion tracking and offered to help us by providing us their robust Android sensor fusion library for gyroscopes. Check this before & after video:
