Dead Pixels

Small Update on the PC Beta

1) The first 40 people to volunteer have been sent invites. There is still around 14 people that have not accepted the invite so check your emails

2) The remaining volunteers will receive invites before the end of the week. I’m just clearing bugs before adding more people.

3) For those that have access I’m trying to track down a bug where people get stuck in the upgrades menu. If this has happened to you I what to hear about it.

4) I’ve not heard back from many testers so far. Even if the game works perfectly I want to hear about it.

Dead Pixels update is out now.

I hope you enjoy the new modes. I tried to mix things up with them. If you don’t like them, they were free and the original game is still there for you to play, so don’t get too angry.

–How to get it–
Go into the game and it should ask you to update.

How I add weapons to Dead Pixels.

I’ve realised that I don’t go into many details about the backend of Dead Pixels, which is a shame because I like to read about that kind of thing with other peoples games.

So in this blog post I’m going to show start to finish how I add a new gun to the game.  In this case it’s going to be a sniper rifle.

Weekly Report # 004

Never again will I be worried that an upside down woman is goign to stick her hand down my thought.

What have I been doing this week?

Looking back it feels like not too much was done this week,  but I have done a lot to the back end of dead pixels to hopefully make the new modes feel better.  Hopefully I’m going to do some apphub playtesting in the next 24 hours.

Dead Pixels: XBLIG Post Mortem

It’s been 2 months now since Dead Pixels came out and all through it I’ve been wondering when the best time to do a post-mortem.  While the game is not dead yet, every week it gets less sales, and cant help but feel its’ better to do this while everyone still remembers the game rather than when it’s been forgotten.

Weekly Report # 002

I’m running a little late, but I’m not goign to give up doing these weekly reports!

What have I been doing this week?

Mostly playtesting and bug fixing.  Things are moving along much faster now and I don’t think it will be long until I get Dead Pixel’s update out.

Weekly Report # 001

I’ve been wanting to do a weekly blogpost for a while, but I’m not particularly good to writing, so I have been putting this off as much as possible.

I feel doing something like this is important to those waiting for DLC because it lets you see that I am still working, and it’s also important to me, because it lets me see that I have accomplished something each week.
