Maple Syrup

April 14, 2014 |  by  |  News/Blog  |  No Comments

Nuclear Nova Software is now selling homemade small-batch maple syrup! Sometimes we need a break from coding, so we tapped 200 trees and made some delicious syrup this year! We ship anywhere in the USA with USPS priority mail, prices are as follows

12 oz – $6.00
1/5th Gallon – $12
Quart – $15
Half Gallon – $25 – Great Value!
Gallon – $45 – Best Value!

Shipping – $5 for 1 quart or less, $8 for 1/2 gallon, and $10 for 1+ gallon.

Email sales@nuclearnova.com if interested, since it’s a small operation we like to add a personal touch and process orders manually. The syrup is selling fast so don’t delay!

GL Golf Tournament Extended

January 23, 2014 |  by  |  News/Blog  |  3 Comments

Due to issues with Blind Man’s Bluff, the monthly tournament for the Mac has been extended two days and Blind Man’s Bluff has been replaced with Ashdown Country Club. If you are stuck on the second round, try the following

1. Start a new game on any other course, the game may warn you that you’re in the middle of a tournament round but ignore it and start anyway

2. Immediately save to the main menu, and open the the tournament screen

3. Press Play, it will probably tell you that the tournament progress has been lost

4. Reset tournament progress and start again.

 

Sorry if you had a good first round, you’ll have to redo it, but this should allow you to finish the tournament

Third Generation Golf Game

December 4, 2013 |  by  |  News/Blog  |  1 Comment

Yesterday we finished the outline for our next generation golf game, already in progress. Due for release sometime in the spring of 2014, here are just a couple of the features to expect

  • New terrain graphics – Modern lighting, shadowing, sky, ect
  • New golfer graphics – Bump/specular maps, more animations, skins, ect
  • Turn based networked multiplayer
  • Online tournaments
  • Different weather modes
  • New Courses
  • Improved old courses
  • New user interface
  • New soundtrack

We’ll of course continue to support GL Golf, Nova Golf, and Disc Golf 3D, but we feel it’s time for another major update to our golf series! We’ve decided to put the second barnyard blaster and third pinball table on hold, this aligns with our current customer base’s interest. Keep your eyes pealed for more here, as well as new large updates for the golf games in the coming months!

All Apps Updated

November 15, 2013 |  by  |  News/Blog  |  15 Comments

It’s that time of year again where we go back and update all of our apps for the holidays! It’s amazing how many things build up with all of Apple’s new hardware and OS versions. We keep good track of everything throughout the year, and program them all in during October for November releases. All apps except Nova Golf, Disc Golf 3D, and GL Golf will be updated in the next few days. Those three games are excluded because they’ve already had all of the features added over the last few months, and actually have additional updates almost ready for January! Keep your eyes peeled, it’s especially hard to notice now with Apple’s new automatic app update feature
