Front Page News!

THIS JUST IN!

My for-fun release party, which I promoted to local newspapers as “The World’s Smallest Release Party”, made first-page news on Satakunnan Kansa, the “New York Times” of Pori, Finland ( ūüėČ ).

In Finnish only, naturally, but there’s a video on there where I demo the game to the journalist. Thanks to Harri Aalto and photographer Kari¬†Mankonen for the piece!

The rain ruined the party, but hey, that’s life. I’ll continue tomorrow, they’ve forecasted sunshine!

ANNOUNCING: OGGIPITAL

Bam! Stop the press!

Sneeweis’ first game is hereby officially announced as it enters the beta testing phase!

Oggipital, with its cute characters the Kisau Veelas and the Oggiput is a puzzle game about quick decisions and accurate finger moves, about the pursuit of the highest score among your friends. Perfect for those minutes on the sofa when home alone. On the back seat on a road trip. Between the bus stops. In the loo. Quick to play, quick to annoy, quick to thrill.

It probably won’t help you to become a better Oggipital player by reading the book. The book is recommended reading, nonetheless.

Look! It is already playable on an iPad if you’re one of the lucky beta testers. But it’s not yet released, you’ll have to wait to around April 2014 to find it in the App Store for your iPhone, iPad, and iPod. An exact release date will be decided while we go along in this blog.

For a more formal game presentation please visit the Games Page.

The Oggiput

In addition to the Kisau Veelas, the other character in the puzzle game is this bone-headed guy, the Oggiput.

Da Oggiput, yo!

He sure looks like one grumpy guy who will mess with your game, so you will probably want to get rid of him as soon as you spot him. Who knows what kind of damage he will otherwise do to your new high score you’ve been hunting for the whole morning in the bus on your way to the office? Squash him like the bug he is!

Or maybe he is just misunderstood. He can’t help his rather scary looks and thick skull, clinking into everything in his path. Perhaps he has a heart of gold. Shall we forgive him?

But then again, the Kisau Veelas do not seem super eager to meet him.

Kisau Veelas not diggin’ it.

I’m a bit puzzled about this. Tee hee, puzzled by a puzzle game. Who writes this stuff?! You’re fired!
