What we’re doing + What are you working on right now?

Me and Tudor had a plan. We had contract work til May this year, then work half a year on our projects and games. Well, May became June for us.

Main reasons being  1. it was possible and 2. winter is coming and searching or finding contract work during winter is a long (and cold) shot.

That being said, we eagerly await for the 1st of June to finish and polish The Way Home, work on Push Monkey and start work on our new game.

We’re also adding content to GAMEgifs every day and are working on a new project that won’t have any in app purchases.

What games are you guys working on right now?

Studio log: only one month to go…

calendar

Like most indie game devs starting out, we are still some way off from sustaining ourselves exclusively from our games and apps.

Right now, we are looking forward to the end of April when the Easter bunny will signal the end of our current contract work and the beginning of (roughly) 6 wonderful “our stuff” time.

Starting May, we’ll pick up where we left off with The Way Home: a new update with some neat effects, a revamped interface and a new story with hardcore-ish levels. We’ve still got 5  extra stories ready to go but we’ll see if we have the time do to all the art for it ( the assets taking a lot of time to make)

We’ll also continue work on Push Monkey plus prototyping for our next game.

Six months is not much and that is good – it’s a good incentive to stay focused and deliver.

Only one month to go…

Push Monkey: Push Notifications For WordPress In OS X Mavericks

hero-safari-push-notification

With the launch of OS X Mavericks, Apple also introduced a new(and we think cool) feature: Desktop Push Notifications. In short you can use the Apple Push Notifications Service to send messages to your website users, right on their Mac desktop — even when Safari isn’t running.

Here’s a video to get a clear idea of how it looks:

As a reader, this means that I can subscribe to my favorite website and receive a desktop push the moment it publishes a new article.

As a publisher, this means a new and engaging channel for spreading new content.

That is why, we are preparing to launch a plugin that easily integrates this feature on any WordPress powered site. And its name is Push Monkey.

So what will the initial version of the plugin offer? 

  • It will let you select the categories to send out push messages when you publish a new post.
  • It will let you send out a custom post (text, link).
  • A potentially unlimited number of Push Notifications sent(we will have an exact number when we launch).
  • You automatically save the $99 dollars per year that you would normally need to pay for the Apple Developer Program(required in order to send these push notifications).

We’ve already tested the plugin on iDownloadblog and FunkySpaceMonkey. Of course you need a Mac running Mavericks to see it in action. We currently read over 10000 subscribers. Conversion rates and other interesting data to come.

So how many Mac users running on Mavericks are we talking about?

A bit over 36.000.000. OS X Mavericks has a 2.42% market share.  The number of computers worldwide right now is about 1.5 billion.

Bare in mind that the  Apple has a computer market share of 7.56% so expect the numbers mentioned above to double this year.

Are you interested and want this awesome powerup for your websites and readers?
