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.
