Quick IwGame Update

We’ve been a little quiet of late so I thought that I would put a quick blog post together to let you all know that the Pocketeers wheels are still turning. We were aiming to have the IwGame Engine update and a complete game using the engine ready for last week, but unfortunately a few Pocketeers related tasks as well as losing time to being ill with the flu has knocked the schedule out a little.

I’m working on a quick cute game that uses 100% IwGame code and XOML. I’m also doing this as a one man band exercise to show how quickly, easily a game can be put together using the engine (as well as the fact that we have no additional spare resources at the moment); I’ve even done much of the art work myself lol.

The next release of the IwGame engine will be next week sometime, even if the sample game is not 100% complete (I will continue to finish off the game in my spare time so that it can be used as a complete reference). The next release has a mass of additional features along with a number of bug fixes.

We believe that v0.3 will be the stable version of IwGame that we have been waiting for (I would even go as far as calling it a release candidate)

Just want to say a quick thanks to Da Voodoochief over at Sorcery Games for his recent blog on IwGameAds integration and wish him much luck with CTR and fill rates.
