Working on new stuff for Sheep Dreams

Some time ago we decided we wanted to make a proper PC/Mac version of Sheep Dreams Are Made of This, since the response has been better than we expected.

We are doing a lot of new art do depict the nightmare scenario, and also more story bits. Here’s a few sketches of what’s to come!

If you’re not familiar with Sheep Dreams, you can check out the mobile version! It’s free on iOS, Android and Windows Phone

Why use .gifs?

Gifs are huge on social  media and are a great way to  share cool snippets of your game.  If you are a game developer you probably know that by now.

What’s also  cool about gifs is that they are really useful too, it’s an easy way to check on what’s happening frame by frame.

I’ve been using a program called ScreenToGif, it’s very simple, does not require you to install anything, and can export to video or gif. It also has some neat editing features and effects.

Another use I found for gifs is to show something to your work partner if you work remotely. “Hey, did that animation I send you worked well with the background?”, a gif is a quick and painless method of showing it, easier than sending a build and more efficient, maybe the person is on mobile and wont be able to check a build until later on.

What other uses do you have for .gifs?

GiantROM 3 Game Jam!

Finally had the chance to participate on my first game jam, and I had a ton of fun!

I made this game in 5 days (the game jam lasted 9 days, but I was busy in the beginning), the idea was to make some sort of a Typing-Shmup, even though I never played a typing game I thought it would be a fun challenge.

The theme was “Bleak Cyberpunk Dystopia” and/or “E3 Presentation”.
