Post news RSS 2018.04.08 Zazmo Weekly Update

On the strictly Zazmo front we are looking to wrap up development and leave Early Access once we are done with Boss 101 on the Xbox One. As we have said – there are not a lot of things on the main list left. We are mostly looking at polishing things and adjusting gameplay bits. All the core gameplay tenets are there and we are focused on making the whole things smooth and easy to play.

Welcome to the weekly Zazmo Arcade Update

We have a bit of a shorter update this week. All three of us are concentrated on getting our other game Boss 101 through submissions at Microsoft. On that end we are in the home stretch and that means a bit of bug fixing and adjustments to the build for the Xbox One. Thankfully nothing we can’t handle but it is taking our focus.

Onwards and upwards!


On the Zazmo end, I did this week’s game night and development update. Looked at some of the older classics we have been inspired from. It’s interesting to see how these game which are closing in on 30 years old hold up.

Checked out the sequel to a game called Rush N Attack and man – that thing is a quarter muncher. You die so often and the game is so brutal!

Also did a run through Bionic Commando. It’s hard to overstate the great ideas in that game and how far they permeate into many other games. Really fun still but also a really hard game to just get through without dying a lot! I mean a lot.

Personally I am pretty excited about the new powerups for the games Breakdown and Rob’s Adventure. They add a lot to already fun games and bring the whole experience up a notch or two.



OK, check out the video and we will talk with you soon!

Remember to always – LIVE YOUR DREAMS!
