HMS goes mobile

16 likes

 

 A very brief update to share the news that Her Majesty's SPIFFING is now available to download on iOS and Android!

As I mentioned in our previous update we're very keen to reach as large an audience as possible for HMS, the more downloads we can get the better our chances will be to get the funding that we need to continue Captain English's cosmic adventures. As ever we're asking for your support, if you could share this news and links to the game with friends and on social media we'd greatly appreciate it!

No longer shackled to a television or computer monitor you can now play HMS whist reclining on your chaise longue!

 We'll share news of how the game preforms on mobile our next update, thank you again for your help in getting HMS this far.

Updates on DVDs

Unfortunately I've been informed that there has been a slight delay with manufacturer replicating our DVDs, I had hoped to have a real life picture of the boxes (as we were expecting to receive them at the start of the week). I'm assured they'll be with us early next week but for now I can share an image of the proof of the box that's being printed:

 As soon as the DVDs are delivered I'll post an update with pictures of them in the flesh, looking forward to getting my hands on them personally.

A couple of articles have went online about the game already, our friends at Pocket Gamer have talked about the game. A nice follow-up to their last piece about the game when they included HMS amongst their most anticipated mobile games of 2015... sorry, been dragging our feet a bit!

Thank you again to everyone for all your support!

      Any way for you to remove that permission? By the way, what plugin is that?

    3. BillyGoat Entertainment 2-time creator on May 8, 2017

      @ET3D, the game doesn't actually use your location on Android, unfortunately there's a bug with one of the plugins that we use that automatically adds this warning to the manifest file Google Play pulls the information about the game from once the project is compiled in Unity. So, while it comes up on the list of permissions, the feature is never used.
      @Momomomo, ha, possibly, depends on how it does. We think we can get the game working well with the remote, however being able to switch between the remote and gamepad (which ideally we'd want) would actually be a bit time consuming to set up. So, we'll have to wait and see if we can afford to do it.
      @BigD, glad to hear that you think it looks decent on tablet, what are you playing on? You can change the icon size in the graphics options menu to make them easier to select on smaller screens. Again, if it sells well enough and we can afford to do more work on it, we'll try and optimise things for more screen sizes.
      So, yea, a lot of this depends on how well the game does. We've managed to get featured on the UK iOS App Store so sales in ole Blighty are going well, internationally we haven't seen just as much success but it's early days yet!

      Boat.

      Plane.

      Spaceship.

      Yes, I've not committed myself to buying yet because there's no space at all on my tablet for another game. So many games I'm not playing, so little space left. Must uninstall something, but what?

      Upon checking permissions, no, not going to buy it for now. I see absolutely no reason for this game to have location permission.

      Looks good on the tablet. Now if I could only show enough coordination to properly pick things!

      And now Apple TV ? ;P hehe
