We’re happy to announce Game Center multiplayer is up and operational on all platforms! Our ID is Nuclearnova if anyone want’s to challenge us, or use the automated system to start a match against a random opponent.
We had so much fun making our Video Fractal app that we decided to to use the same technology to make another video creation utility, this time based on our ASCII Art program. Instead of converting images to still ASCII art pictures, our app converts entire movie files! While it’s fun playing around with fractals, we see many more practical applications for ASCII art videos. We finally got something to show this morning, checkout the preview below! It’s a very rough preview, now comes there process of adding back all of the settings from ASCII Art in a nice user interface. If everything goes as well is with the Video Fractal app we expect to have this app submitted to Apple for review this week!
We’re happy to announce that version 2.48 has been submitted to Apple for review. This update brings turn based Game Center multiplayer support. Players take turns playing three holes until the rounds is fished. Unfortunately Apple does not support Game Center outside of the Mac App Store, so shareware users will have to download the Mac App Store version to take advantage of this feature. We are providing promotional codes to registered shareware users, to request one simply email firstname.lastname@example.org with your serial number and we will send you a promo code to download the game for free from Apple. Course/Subscription packs are unable to be transferred due to limitations with Apple’s promo code system. We are releasing the shareware version 2.48 today, we expect the Mac App Store update to be approved by Apple in 5-10 days.
Here is another video we’ve been playing with this afternoon, it zooms into 1,000,000,000,000x on the Mandelbrot set! Now time to put a UI on this engine so we can release it as an app!
Check out a preview our what our next mini-app will do! More to come as soon as our Macbook Pro cools down, all four cores were pumping at 100% for several minutes for this video!
Checkout our new 30 second app preview. This will show up on the app store along with the screenshots for the upcoming 2.48 update.
Some game developers finish their games and move on to the next project. Here at Nuclear Nova we like to make sure our games are always compatible with the latest operating systems and hardware. We also like to add new features that we think of from time to time, especially with our more popular games. We’re happy to announce updates to every game and app we have, that’s well over 50 updates when you take into account Mac/iOS/Lite versions! Check them out in the App Store today, we won’t bother boring you with pages of update notes here.
We just finished coding turn based multiplayer games for GL Golf and we’re now asking for help testing using Apple’s new TestFlight service. If you’re interested in signing up (iOS only, TestFlight is not available on the Mac yet) please send an email to email@example.com or post here saying you’re interested and we’ll add you to the list. Once we get enough testers we’ll push out the latest version!
