Happy Birthday JetBus!

Happy Birthday JetBus!

Exactly one year ago today RedBandana took the first step into the world of casual games by releasing its first game JetBus.

As I’ve wrote before, JetBus was not meant to be a big hit that pleased the masses, it was an experiment with clear goals which I think were achieved and hopefully 1 year later now we are ready to continue this path and make a few more games but here’s some details of how the experiment went.

In the new format, which starts today, I’ll provide links to some new games and review 2 or 3 in more depth. This week we have Bubble Tanks 3, Flight and Insidia along with a few others.

The First Game Experiment

The First Game Experiment

As some of you might know our first game named JetBus came out 2 weeks ago. I thought I’d share our goals for this game and also discuss a bit our findings of how the Flash game industry “seems” to work, I say “seems” because with only 1 game released there is no way we can take anything for granted, maybe not even after 10 games released. This will be just my personal opinion of Flash games, casual players, portals, APIs etc.

Weekly Update – 28 Nov 2010

Hi everyone, I though today I would start making the “Games” part of the Weekly Update a bit more detailed, pick one game that stands out and comment it a bit more and also give it my personal rating. I don’t know if I’ll turn it into a separate post in the future or if the Weekly Update will turn into Weekly Games, I don’t know but for now this will suffice.

JetBus Bidding Process

JetBus Bidding Process

So, RedBandana (basically my company’s game “division”) finished its first Flash game (JetBus) a while back and we uploaded it to FlashGameLicense in the hopes of finding a sponsor for it. We are completely new to the Flash games market and apart from a few tips we had before uploading the game we pretty much didn’t know what to do or what to expect.

I’ll try to detail a chronology, list of bids, list of views and some graphs for analysis.

“Getting your Flash game sponsored” Book Review

When I learned that Ryan Wolniak from Freelance Flash Games was writing a guide about selling Flash games I was really interested and have been curious for its release even since. The book came out on last Monday, 25th of October, under the name “Getting your Flash game sponsored” and promises a step-by-step guide with 186 pages separated into 6 chapters that will help Flash developers getting their games sponsored.
