So back in April we decided we'd make an iPhone/iPad game based on our old Half-Life 2 mod from 2008, Shotgun Sunrise. That game is Vroom! And it's just been submitted to the app store. We're super excited about it.

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.Here's the description going on the store:

Appstore wrote: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

Thanks folks!

Well done! I loved Shotgun Sunrise (still play it through LAN with friends on occasion) — will it itself ever update?

I know this is kind of a copout but... That's still up in the air. Sorry dudes! Seriously, we really wanted to provide more there than we've been able to.
