A (Bad) News Update

Well friends, it has been a very long time since anything got posted here! Since announcing that the Adventure Apes would be made for the Nintendo DSI, a lot of work was done to set the game up for the system. We put in tons of time to get any hurdles out of the way, and made good progress on the game.
Unfortunately though, finding time to get every aspect of the game finished and ready for submission killed it in the end. It's a very sad event for sure, as it seemed to be going so well early on, but it was not meant to be I suppose.

On the flip side, it is not all bad news! The fact that there is no longer any obligation to get something done under Nintendo's license means that I can once again put the game files back up on the Adventure Apes website for everyone to play for free. In the meantime, I'll be working on two new games, one of which will be the full design that would have been the DSI version! I'm also hoping to start rolling out a couple products on the website in the near future.

It's a definite change of gears from the direction things were headed this past year, but when life gives you lemons, make lemonade!


  1. So nintendo license prevents you from telling about what you're developing as well ?

  2. Hi PypeBros! No, not at all, though they do restrict any licencees from talking about Nintendo specific topics, like terms of contracts and such. The massive quiet span on the blog was more or less due to the fact that while we were working away on the game, there really wasn't much that could be shown for it. Lots of programming and sprites were created, but it was all for in-game and wouldn't be all that interesting to see. Looking back though, it might have been better to show something, no matter how minimal, so please accept my apologies for not posting more frequently:)
