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.

Flex Multiple Select List with FloatLayout

Flex Multiple Select List with FloatLayout

I thought I’d share a couple small classes that I had to put together recently for a project.

The goal was to create a list of toggle buttons but that would be laid side by side and then wrap at the end of the line. This allows for a really nice multiple selection component in contrast with having just a long list of checkboxes.

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.

FDT 4 Review

FDT 4 Review

I’m really excited to be reviewing FDT4! I’ll try not to be influenced by the fact that I simply love this software so I hope I can keep this as neutral as possible. I will actually point out other options, their pros and cons as well as the pros and cons of FDT4. Bare in mind that I’m by no means an expert in all of these editors and I will probably miss a lot of features and not be accurate about all editors, I count on help from comments to point out any mistakes which I will promptly correct.

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.
