      Oh dear. Well at least we know that XNA games don't like VMWare. I'm guessing you don't have a PC bud... If that's the case, I'll be getting an iOS version out there later this year. Can I interest ya in a complimentary copy of that to make up?

      Hey Cat,

      Interesting one that. I got something similar when I tried to run Power-Up on my 6 year old laptop. Turns out the graphics card was too old for XNA to cope with. I have a feeling that with XNA baing a particularly Microsoft thing, there's probably some kind of clash going on with the Mac graphics card.

      Have you had any luck getting it working since?

      Mac book pro Retnia. 5100 Iris intel video card.
      Does this game work with bootcamp?
      I am trying to run the game in VMware fusion but I get the error:

      No suitable graphics card found.

      Could not find a Direct3D device that supports the XNA framework HiDef profile.

      Verify that a suitable graphics device is installed.

      Make sure the Desktop is not locked, and that no other application is running in full screen mode.

      Avoid running under Remote Desktop or as a Windows Service.

      Check the display properties to make sure hardware acceleration is set to Full.

      Brilliant!! Sounds like you're doing rather well James. Chuffed that you're getting into it! I know what you mean though, I was always a bit rubbish at shooters so I made Power-Up for about my skill level in the hopes that it might be a little more accessible to everybody.

      Have you met the Walker yet?...

      I've got the Candycane paint job and made it as far as the Cityplex level. It challenging but not frustrating, which is good as I'm not that good at 2D shumps.

      Brilliant! Thanks James. Great to hear that you're enjoying the game and that it's proving to be a challenge. Balancing the difficulty is a very tricky thing but I'm glad to know it's paying off and you're pushing onward into the game. Unlocked any paintjobs yet?...

      I got the PC version up and running. Really enjoying it so far, I've only reached the second boss (on medium difficulty) but the game plays really well.

      Congratulations on a successful Kickstarter project.

      ...and as for translations, I'll be looking into that if PowerUp makes me enough for it to be worthwhile. Looks like it'll be a while before Microsoft pay up tho. ;)

      Hey,

      Check out those weekly Update Videos for the specifics, but yep. PowerUp finally passed Microsoft's peer testing process and will be hitting XBLIG on September 13th.

      After that, the PC version is on track for late November, but if anything changes there I'll be sure to let you know if those weekly Video Updates.

      Hiya, Looking good for that deadline. The really tricky bit is getting the PC-coded PowerUp ported to Xbox by late August, but I'm firing on all cylinders to get it done, then I'll focus on optimising the controls for PC too, which shouldn't take long. :)

      Good question Frederic. Unfortunatelt, the only version I've got control over the distribution of is the PC version (everyone else does it through digital downloads on their store) so I'm only able to add the PC one to the award tiers.
      That said, it looks like we've hit the iOS and Android versions' stretch goals so all being well when the campaign ends, those versions will definitely be coming in the not too distant. Don't worry though. I'm going to try and keep the price around the £2 mark across all versions of the game.

      Creator Frederic Badin on February 27, 2013

      Congrats! Game looks great!

      I don't have an Xbox and don't plan on getting one, so I'll be waiting for the PC version. By that, you mean Windows, or also Linux? Regardless, either/both is good.

      What I'm really stoked about is the mobile (Android) version. But I noticed there's no pledge level(s) for it. Does that mean all backers get it, or am I being daft?
