Anyway, loyal readers of my blog are invited to go test out the game: http://beta.blimpwarsonline.com/ Sign up for an account, try out some games, and submit some bug reports. Read on for some additional information.
Over00′s first game is Golemizer, a game he designed and wrote himself. He developed the technology behind the game. It’s a bit clunky in Golemizer and he’s worked hard to improve performance in his new game.
Dave really embodies the indie development spirit. He’s set a goal and worked to achieve it. His first game used free sprites with some custom contributed images. For Blimp Wars he’s outsourced some art to a company in Asia. He has funded the whole project himself while keeping his day job. Full disclosure: I’ve advised Dave on some game design and business elements in return for a small share of future revenue. He’s still done the lion’s share of the work, though and has been the driving force for the game.
Anyway, I encourage you to show some appreciation for a hard-working indie developer and go try out his games. Understand that Blimp Wars is a Beta and may not be highly polished yet. Give constructive and thoughtful feedback to help him improve the game and show your support.
