Pokki!

Written by jan. Posted in Development

Together Alone is now available on Pokki, a new app platform for Windows (Mac support is coming soon).

We ported the game to Pokki for two reasons: so more people get to play it, and to enter it in Pokki 1UP, a game development contest with impressive prizes!

So, in a few weeks, Together Alone will be judged by a jury of 4 game industry heavyweights, notably including Kim Swift, one of the original creators of the legendary Portal. We really hope it will do well. But even getting some good feedback would be awesome. And lots of new players of course!

Update progress

Written by jan. Posted in Development

Good progress on the Together Alone update over the weekend. Spiffy new graphics were added, levels were tweaked, and interesting ideas for the future discussed. A few specifics:

  • The game is now widescreen and looks great up to 1280×800 resolution (but scales gracefully to smaller formats).
  • Helpful tooltips in the first few levels explain stuff a little better.
  • High-res character graphics for the title screen and story cards.
  • The game is a little friendlier to those with older browsers or stricter storage settings. Before, it was really rather rude. :-)
  • Quite a few little bugs were squashed.
