KarBOOM now under $5

News 2 comments

A cheaper KarBOOM

KarBOOM is more than a year old (four, if you count its various alphas in another engine), which isn't exactly ancient in the Indie scene, but the dust has well and truly settled after its launch in October 2013 and the 12-player update last July.

For those of you who've been interested in KarBOOM, but not enough to spend $10 on a local multiplayer only game, this is what you've been waiting for!

You can also buy KarBOOM straight through KarBOOM's website!

If you're wondering about KarBOOM's future, it's likely a relatively uneventful one. Being employed has kept me busy, and has been hugely rewarding as I grow as a software developer. The little free time I have now for game development is being put into other projects.

Should any of them see the light of day, I'll be sure to put them on IndieDB, which has been amazing for KarBOOM. And as always, Twitter's a good place to find me, and though I don't tweet often, when I do, it's usually about what I'm working on.

Since you're going cross-platform, any plans for a Android/Ouya release?

Hi! I do hope to release it on Ouya, but that'll be later on - for now my first priority is finishing it for PC, Linux & Mac. I also need to get my hands on an Ouya :P

Android in general is less likely. It's a local multiplayer game, and as far as I can tell, decent controls for two or more players on a tablet or smartphone isn't viable - at least not while letting players do everything they're supposed to be able to do in KarBOOM.

I mostly thought about Android because of the various no-name Ouya-like android stick devices like the MK808 and uHost 2 and Dell's upcoming Ophelia that are becoming popular as emulators. That's a pretty fringe platform though.

Ah yes. It could make sense to have a generic Android version when doing the Ouya version as well - fringe platforms tend to have communities that all know what everyone's playing, and that could make the port worth it for KarBOOM.

Please consider porting it to the PlayJam GameStick as well! I've heard porting to GameStick from OUYA is dead easy. =]

Oh! The GameStick! I'll keep that in mind :) If I can survive on KarBOOM long enough to do an Android port, I'll be considering all options I can find that might be suitable.

Any chance that this game would have racing game mode?

Hi! Sorry for the late reply!

There have been a lot of requests for a racing game mode. I have higher priorities at this stage, but I will experiment with such a mode.

Hmmm...I downloaded the 0.3.7 version and started to play it, but after the splash screen, I got an error that says (DirectX Error:RTARGET)

What are your system specs? This seems to be happening on older hardware. I'm working on ways to avoid such problems for the next update.
