  • NEIS, Funding applications and a Mole update!

    Sunday, 2 May 2010 - 10:38pm

    It’s been a while since I’ve written a blog on what I’ve been up to. Mostly because I’ve been quite busy with all sorts of work. Thankfully the outcome of which is that I now have quite a deal of things to write about.
    First to talk about are my efforts to materialize an indie game studio and to shape it into being an entity that is considered professional and not in fact an unemployed de...

    The proposal:
    I’m currently writing an application to Film Victoria for a digital distribution funding due in mid April. The purpose of this funding is to kick...

  • Design Documentation for Mole is now public! + My 2009 in retrospect.

    Sunday, 13 December 2009 - 11:08pm

    Hi everyone.

    With Mole just about close to a month until it's iPhone release I wanted to show my thought process in how I went about designing Mole.

    One of the best ways to show you guys is to showcase the design document.

    So in the interest in sharing free information within our dev community and perhaps giving you guys something to reference. Here is my design documentati...

  • My experience at GCAP! - [ And play our Mole CGAP submission.]

    Wednesday, 9 December 2009 - 5:44pm

    First off I’ll disclaim that as far as my experience at GCAP is concerned I was only a exhibitor. I didn’t attend any of the keynotes or talks. I sat in at the Mole table 90% of the time. The rest was spent talking to people and playing the other indie games.

    Play our GCAP submission of Mole!

    I noticed was...

  • Mole GCAP submission - Video - Images and Gameplay Demo.

    Thursday, 29 October 2009 - 5:08pm

    Our submission for GCAPs indie awards.

    To be honest I didn't submit Mole in the hopes of winning awards. I'm more so interested in getting the opportunity to showcase the game to developers and publishers in December. At which point Mole will be much more refined in control, graphics and quality then it is now.

    Still we're quite happy with this submission. It showcases the core ga...
