Offspring Fling Released!... What's Next?

Offspring Fling Released!... What's Next?

The past couple of days have just been a complete blur to me and I'm not really sure what exactly has happened between 11am on friday and now. I rolled out of bed that morning and saw twitter lighting up with "#WakeUpKylePulver" and so I quickly updated the Offspring Fling site to put the game out live.

The response has been overwhelmingly positive about the game! There's been a bunch of articles popping up all over about the game that I'm still going through, and some reviews are coming out that are giving the game pretty high marks! People are showing me screenshots of their progress through the game and I'm absolutely thrilled to see them all.

So now that the game is out, whats next? Well, I have some plans for an small update. Some stuff that I can talk about now, and some stuff that will be revealed later. I'm planning on updating the end of level screen a little bit to show some more information. Some people have requested to see how much time they shaved off of their previous best when they score a new best time. I'll also be saving more options from the options screen, such as the screen settings. I also want to make replay opening a little bit easier, so I'm going to try to see if I can make replays auto load from the operating system.

The next patch I'll also be trying to tackle native controller support. I've found some interesting leads on how to get this working and it might be easier than I thought. Along with that I'm going to attempt to do completely customizable keyboard control.

I'm also planning on releasing a short demo soon, so people that have been waiting for a demo to try it out before they buy it out will be seeing that soon.

So along with all of that, hopefully there will be some other updates and additions that people will like. If you want to stay updated about Offspring Fling, then I suggest you visit this blog every once and awhile or follow me on twitter.

With that, I just want to say THANK YOU SO MUCH to everyone that bought the game! I'm super excited for what the future holds! Now back to work, and back to finishing THIS GAME!
