We know, it's been a very long time since we've updated our website!
So what's been happening?
We recently got our developer Ouya kit in the mail and we've been hard at work creating games for it!
The game that we are planning on releasing as a launch title is SpaceRoads.
If you've ever played SkyRoads for DOS then this game will be very familiar to you.
If you haven't, SpaceRoads is a very simple 3D platform/racing game.
You pilot a Space ship through various courses.
Jump back and forth on platforms as you speed to the end before your fuel runs out.
Here's a quick gameplay video of SpaceRoads running on the Ouya.
Here are a few more screenshots, after that we will keep you posted as to when the game will be released.
GameSalad Beginner's Guide
Are you interested in making games, but you don't know how to code? No problem! GameSalad is the program for you! Check out our book "GameSalad Beginner's Guide" to get your jumpstart in game development now!
We have been doing some work on programming lately! It's been a long road since I started writing the GameSalad book but now that it's finally done we can focus on our app creation. So what's in store? Well we have updated the iPhone/iPod Touch version of Toy Tennis, we added Openfeint and fixed some small bugs.
What's on the table after the update? We are going to continue working on Baman Piderman: Da Journey! With our previous version scrapped (because we didn't think the gameplay was entirely enjoyable) we decided to restart it using Cocos2D which is a fantastic framework for XCode game creation on iOS and Mac. Stay tuned for more info and screenshots!
It has been a very long time since we have done anything with our website, we have been so busy lately. As you may know Miguel DeQuadros has written a book entitled: GameSalad: Beginners Guide, which is about a fantastic game engine named GameSalad that requires no coding! Best of all, it's a free to use program! With it you can create iOS games, Android, and Mac games for free! Again 0 coding is involved whatsoever! Anyways, the book will be released in March 2012 (expected) so check it out! It will be at your local book store on sale for $44.99 USD, or order online now and save up to 38%!
All the book stuff aside, we have been looking for some inspiration, we have been looking for a cool new idea for an iOS/Mac/Android/XBox game and nothing has been coming. We are going to keep thinking of a new idea, in the mean time why not send us a line with an idea?
Our book has officially been announced!
Our book has been announced on the Publishing website! Take a look at it: http://www.packtpub.com/gamesalad-beginners-guide/book
October 31 2011 Update
Just a small update on what we have been doing around here.
- We have been writing a lot, working very hard on our upcoming book "GameSalad By Design: A Beginners Guide". We are currently working on the 9th chapter, and there are 12 chapters. It should be released early 2012, hoping everything goes well with the editing and everything, so far we haven't had a problem with any of the chapters.
- We have been playing around with Unity 3D quite a bit, we have been spending a lot of time trying to learn Java Script, that is always the most difficult part of learning a new program is the new scripting language. We are doing a bit of work on a game called: "Space Worms" which is going to be released for the Mac, and possibly PC. Here are a few screenshots of what we have been doing:

We are all sad to see him go, to remember him we will be making our current apps free for one week.
September 12 2011 News
Well it's been a very long time since we have done anything on our website... actually it's been a long time since we have done much at all to do with our company.
To fill you in on what we have been doing, we were contacted by a Publishing company and we were asked to write a book on GameSalad (www.gamesalad.com) and show case how easy it is to create awesome games in little time with almost no programming at all. So we have been doing that since June 2011 and we are just on the 5th chapter, the book is projected to be finished mid-December. It's a 300 Page Beginners Guide on creating awesome games, as of yet there is no release date posted but as we get closer to the books final draft we will post.
Also, in our very rare spare time, we have been using Unity 3D (www.unity3d.com) which is a great game engine which is geared towards all systems, Mac, PC, iOS, XBox, PS3 and Wii. We have been working a little bit on creating MobiGames Episode 2 in 3D!
There's just a look at what we've been doing, we have done more to this level by adding some more effects to it. This game is a mix of the impossible game and Portal. The Impossible game because it's challenging and looks simple, and Portal because of the humor and much talk about testing and more. It's going to be a great game when it's finished and we hope everyone likes it, it is our first 3D game we have ever done.
We just wanted to give a quick update on Baman Piderman: Da Journey.
- We uploaded the lite version which was essentially a demo just showing off what we have.
- Apple rejected the demo saying they do not want "demos" on the appstore
- Apple also rejected the game because the episodes in which we use our cutscenes are copyrighted and we do not have the rights to them, regardless of the fact we are not making any revenue off the sales of the game.
So what does this mean? It means that what we have done so far, we are not allowed to use it. We have to go back to the very beginning and restart everything, why? Because the cutscenes were an integral part of the game, a cutscene would play giving you information on what you have completed/what you have to do next. Now what? Today we have restarted work on the game, fortunately much of the work is predone, all the graphics are finished so we have to throw it all together. So... who wants to play what we had? Post on our Facebook Page for your chance to win a copy of the unfinished product!
The Big Surprise!
We have uploaded Baman Piderman: Da Journey Lite to the Appstore! This is essentially a demo version of what's to come. Pending its approval it should take about 2-3 weeks to be released, stay tuned!
Prepare for a big surprise!
Wait for it... just wait for it...
Friday May 6 2011 Update
Hello everyone! We have finally got this site back up and running! We just wanted to post some of our game intros!
Baman Piderman: Da Journey News
Hello everyone! We are adding a new selection on our games page that will include all updates on the new upcoming Baman Piderman game. Check it out!
Baman Piderman: Da Journey!
We are very pleased, and excited to announce that we have been collaborating with the creators of the hit mini series Baman Piderman! It is not an official game, but we have permission from the creators to go ahead with creating the game. We have only been working on the game since Friday January 28 2011, but we already have a lot going on! The game takes place during Happy Winter Friends (Part 1 and 2) the objective of the game is to travel throughout the trees to find the Wish to save Pumkin!
Here are some screenshots of what we have so far:
This is the early stage of the game, there were no enemies, nor did we even have the attacking implemented.
Here you can see we implemented he attacking, Piderman shoots multiple streams of webbing to hit the walking tree. The dark part of the forest, Piderman has already defeated the walking tree in this area.
Here is the introduction for the game, very simple and taken from Happy Winter Friends Part 1
Well that's what we have so far, leave us your input and comments would be greatly appreciated!
We just received very exciting news! Our game Toy Tennis HD 1.2 has been nominated for "Most Entertaining Holiday App 2010"! We are very excited about this and we would request everyone to please vote for it!

Toy Tennis Update
What's going on?
Hello everyone, things have been super slow here at Wurd Industries, literally almost nothing has been going on, the only thing that's really been going on is we've been playing around with Torque X for the XBox 360. We've been throwing some stuff together on it, trying to see if we can make iMMUNE for the XBox, so check out the screenshots to see what we've done so far.
So that's pretty much what we've been doing, not a whole lot but it's a slow, winter start.
Our site goes mobile!
Just a quick announcement, our website has now gone mobile, meaning you can visit a special mobile optimized site on your iPhone, Blackberry, Android or other mobile devices. Hope you all enjoy it!
Not Much Going On
Hey everyone, not much going on here at Wurd Industries, just trying to do some organizing, throwing some ideas together and seeing what works. We've been doing some designs for a new game (whether we do it or not who knows) but it looks pretty cool, very cartoony/dark. Take a look at some of the pictures, tell me if you agree.
It's like an RPG (Roll Playing Game) that has rich story content and lots of traveling, doing quests, defeating enemies and more. It seems like it would be a very dark gritty game but we'll see!
iMMUNE 3: Intro Video
Hello everyone, just have some spare time to update the site, we've been slowly working but working nonetheless. So just going to give you guys an update on what's going on with iMMUNE 3. Ever since Apple released iOS4, they have made some changes to the coding which if you aren't on the ball could mess you up but we have been able to keep up on it and have worked out some bugs. So we've added some Facebook Integration, an in-game radio like the first iMMUNE, some much better looking interfaces, redesigned graphics, and some cut scenes which we are hoping for some true acting cutscenes, so we are going to do some writing for the script and story, draw up some story boards and figure out who is going to do the voices. So there you go, here are some screenies to take a look at and scrutinize haha... no really take it for what it is
The new not finished main menu, as you can see at the top bar, there's the facebook login button.
The ingame radio, nothing new just the same radio engine from the first game.
A screencap from the intro video.
New Toy Tennis HD Update

Doing Some More Work Before Summer Holidays
Sigh ok so we have been busy doing other things here at Wurd Industries, but we have finally got to working on iMMUNE 3: The Final Stand. Bringing back a classic feel (and evidently more enjoyed) to the game. The gameplay will be the same as the first iMMUNE, but more features. We have some pictures, and this is probably be as much we can do before our summer vacation in August. iMMUNE 3: The Final Stand includes playing music from your iPod library, acceleration controls, and iAds (for the free version)

Well it's been a while! *Updated*
Hey guys, I know it's been a while, we haven't updated our site here but there hasn't been much news! iMMUNE 2: Rise of the Salmonella was released did half decent then nothing else came our way... we did some design for iMMUNE 3 but that slowed down. But we do have some news, we are collaborating with Mondo Media and Alex Butera and Lindsay Small to create a new Baman Piderman game for the iPhone! If you don't know what Baman Piderman is, look here: http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=baman+piderman&aq=f
Look at some screenies on Facebook!
*Update* Unfortunately the creators of Baman Piderman could not get a hold of Mondo Media (Their production company) to push us the rights to make a game, so we had to scrap the game for now, and hopefully we could pick up the project later.

"Simultaneously, new details of the next iPhone were "leaked" to an enthusiast Web site, which I couldn't access but which was pounced on by gadget blogs. It said iPhone 3.0 will launch July 17 with a 3.2 megapixel camera and more memory -- 16 and 32 gigabytes.
Whether it's real or not, the info from Appleiphoneapps.com is tantalizing:

-- $199 and $299 price-points to be maintained
-- 3.2 megapixel camera
-- Video recording and editing capabilities
-- Ability to send a picture and video via MMS
-- Discontinuation of the metal band surrounding the edge of the device
-- OLED screen
-- 1.5x The battery life
-- Double the RAM and processing power
-- Built-in FM transmitter
-- Apple logo on the back to light up
-- Rubber-tread backing
-- Sleeker design
-- Built-in compass
-- Combination of the camera, GPS, compass, and Google maps to identify photo and inform about photo locations.
-- Turn by turn directions"
