Status Update!

  • Last weekend I participated in the Global Game Jam 13. Our team didn’t have a proper 3D modeller/animator, so we did what we could with Unity3D. You can check it here.
  • Biribit is already working. A player can sing up and add/delete friends. Some features are left to add, like Messaging. This is going to be huge.
  • I attended two workshops, one about Unity3D and the other about cocos2D. I also attended a cocos2D-X presentation. They both are viable choices for creating multiplayer cross-platform games. I’m thinking about porting Kipos to cocos2D-X.
  • Some Kipos features that are top priority on my list: Biribit implementation, Breeding&Relations, more interaction with the Kipos, add a new breed, more multiplayer features.

Jan 16, Kipos birthday!

One year. One year since Kipos was first released on the App Store.

It has been a very fun and challenging year. Thanks to all the players, specially those who supported the game, gave feedback, reviews, suggestions… It really made a difference. :)

Some stats about Kipos:

  • More than 30,000 downloads so far!
  • Over 1,000 updates since last version release, one week ago.
  • Over 80 StarterPacks sold since November!
  • Over 100,000 apples eaten!

Expect an app update around February, and maybe an update for That’s My Gift for late January.

Enjoy the game! :)

Kipos 1.4 is finally released + upcoming features!

What a great week start, Kipos 1.4 has finally been released! Everyone should be able to download/update it from the App Store by now.

For the next update I have already some features on my mind:

· Finish the Environment Need functionality.

· Provisional accounts/profiles for Kipos players. With a profile you will be able to sync your game’s data between your devices, earn coins when playing “That’s My Gift” and redeem codes for content.

· Host/Join feature for “That’s My Gift!”.

· A section in the status bar that tells you how many players are online on “That’s My Gift!”, the multiplayer mini game. It will also prompt a small notification when someone creates a game/match; when you start a “That’s My Gift!” match and you are waiting for someone to join, everyone playing Kipos will get a small notification, so it’s more likely that you find someone to play with! (You can disable the notification feature)

· New objects for the Shop.

These following months I specially want to focus on adding more content/objects to the game’s Shop. Decorative items are much more easier to add, as I don’t need to mess with much coding. Do you have any suggestion for an object for the Shop, or anything else for the game? Please, leave it as comment, and I will think about it!

Thanks for playing Kipos!
