Them Changes...

The time is here for me to make a couple changes to what exactly goes on in this blog you see before you. As you may or may not know, my beloved Adventure Apes has gone into development for DSiWare recently, and it means making a push to get the name out there as best as I can! So what I've decided to do is switch everything over to a new blog where the focus will be on the Adventure Apes themselves rather than what I have been working on lately. That doesn't mean this blog is going away by any means, but what will happen is this blog will open up to include any sort of things I happen to be working on, not just the monkeys!

So, if you want to keep an eye on all the happenings within the Adventure Apes universe,  please, mosey on over to their blog here ---> (Adventure Apes HQ)

But by all means, if you want to stay up to date on all things Potato-y, stay put.

Actually, you know what, check them both out, because you know as well as I that the world can never have too many monkeys, or potatoes!

New Adventure Apes Website!!!

Whew! It was a bit of a whirlwind lesson in html, along with what NOT to do when making a website, but I've got something set up now. Looks pretty good too:) It is little more than a shell of a website at the moment as there isn't much content, but it's a good start. As things progress with the game here and there, you can expect to find more and more things added to the site. If you just can't wait and need to get a sneak peek at the shape of things to come, by all means, feel free to have a look! Clicking on the image should take you to the site:)

Breaking the Silence...

Wow! It has been almost a full year since the last post with any news about the Adventure Apes. It may have taken a little longer than anticipated getting things off the ground, but all the paperwork is out of the way, so here goes:

The Adventure Apes are officially coming to the Nintendo DSi!

It means starting things from the ground up, and while it implies lots of tedious work, it also means that things will be refined and improved upon from the old PC version (links of the game file have been removed to avoid any conflicts, confusion, and/or setbacks to the progress of the game).

The reasons for wanting to make the Adventure Apes are many, but the biggest one by far is the simple fact that it's the best fit. The Adventure Apes is primarily geared towards a younger age demographic (mainly the tweens, but you are forgiven if monkeys with guns appeals to the kid in you as well!), and the DSi caters to a younger crowd, while other handhelds seem to target slightly older users.

You might be asking yourself, "Why the DSi when the 3DS is already available?"
Well, we've got to test the market out. The user base for the DSi is still huge, so it's a good way to gauge reaction to the Adventure Apes once it is done. We are a licensed 3DS developer however, so if the response is positive for the DSiWare version, chances are pretty good the next one will be on the 3DS, but I'm getting ahead of things now!

So, there you have it, the ball is officially rolling. Thanks to everyone over this extended period of time who have stuck with us and helped to keep things in line.
