Yeah, I'm sorry, this news isn't strictly speaking about Shotgun Sunrise. Although we might have some of that at some point, soon, maybe. We're looking into some things.
Anyway, back in April we decided we'd make an iOS game based on Shotgun Sunrise. That game is Vroom! And it's just been submitted to the app store. We are super excited about it. There is an indiedb profile with a bunch of screenshots waiting for authorisation.I'm having some serious internet troubles lately so I don't have time to make a better video than this clumsily-filmed over-the-shoulder one but I reckon it'll do the job:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dsSn8xBbzUU
This is the first game any of us have ever sold and it's a pretty good feeling having it submitted. It should be on the store within a couple of weeks for iPhone (3GS and 4) and iPads, and all the iPod Touch 3rd-gen-and-ups. It'll be $1.99 and there's also a lite version going up for free. The game is all about driving around hitting zombies in your truck and doing ridiculous jumps.
Also, I have to figure out how promo codes work for apps but I'm hoping to give the full app to a bunch of you awesome Shotgun Sunrise fans for half price or free. Ya'll're amazing and we're sorry we haven't been better with updates to the mod.
Here's the description going on the store:
Vroom is a racing and vehicular-zombie-flattening game made with the UDK. Drive your big blue truck around three zombie-infested tracks, boosting up half-pipes, catching mad air, and revelling in your extermination of the loathsome undead.
-3 levels (so far!) -Customise the aesthetics of your already amazing pickup truck
-Marvel at the ragdoll physics as you mercilessly slaughter the walking dead
-Use said slaughter to fuel your Vroomometer and set incredible new lap times
-Featuring the incredible musical stylings of Jonathan Yandel
Hope you folks dig it. :)
