Yesterday we posted that we wouldn't be posting anything more related to Flappy Bird due to the developer wanting some peace. Since then we have seen statements and other things posted by other websites involving the Flappy Bird developer which is fine, we will stick to our word for the most part. However Terry Cavanagh, the creator of Super Hexagon and other games, has published his own spin-off of Flappy Bird called Maverick Bird.
Clash of Clans developers Supercell apparently had a hacker breach the company's security, accessing corporate emails and business accounts, and then leaking this information online. Supercell has then turned around and posted the information anyways, announcing their 2013 revenues as well as up-to-date daily money coming into the company from their two games.
Everyone likes to try their hand at creating content for a game that they are playing and generally this only happens when you have a level generator or something similar available when the game is released. An upcoming roguelike game called #Dungeon that will let you generate levels for the game using Twitter as your level generating engine.
Rodeo Games is jumping into the Unreal Engine 4 scene with a new license for Epic Games' next-gen game development engine. This company is already known for a few of their titles as well as their partnership with Games Workshop who owns the Warhammer IP and have released one game under that franchise already called Warhammer Quest.
Zen Pinball will be getting a new table next week themed around Super League Football. When you download and begin playing this new pinball table, you'll be able to choose which football team you will want to play as. This team will be the one you represent and support in league play and on the global leaderboards.
We've teamed up with our good friends over at Hyperbees in regards to their new game called Voxel Rush. After a long break from releasing games, Hyperbees is back and this new game is a rather cool but crazy looking 3D racing game but if you use our code you can ease up the insanity level just a bit.
Valentine's Day is drawing closer and since this is a holiday that generally has sales in the real world for products that you can buy your loved one, it only makes sense that Android games will be going on sale as well because what doesn't say 'I Love You' like buying your loved ones a bunch of Android games, or yourself for that matter.
We were going to post about this news yesterday but we felt that some more details were going to come to light about Flappy Bird being pulled from Google Play and the iOS App Store. Sure enough some more have been released. Aside from the initial statement that it is ruining the creator's simple life, he is now saying it is also being pulled to save everyone from addiction to the game.
It's not unusual for companies to re-brand themselves with a different but similar name to their old one. A prime example of this would be Spacetime Studios' recent re-branding to Spacetime Games. Not a major change but different enough to make a difference. Namco Bandai is moving to do something similar with their name but it won't be a whole lot different, just more confusing at first until everyone gets used to the change.
This sort of thing has happened before regarding different topics. A game is released that looks like it will be fun to play at first. Then you dig into it a bit and realized that is actually a giant billboard with some sort of meaning to it and that the actual game is more of a side project to the overall message. In this case Music Inc is going to teach you that pirating music is bad.
Last month we announced that XperimentalZ Games was launching a beta test for their upcoming minimalistic game Platforms Unlimited. For those of you didn't get into the beta, that is over now and Platforms Unlimited is now available in full over on Google Play.
