Hey all.

Thanks again for being part of this silly campaign that lead to a game that's actually being downloaded on IOS and Android daily. 

Even though I promised to deliver the game by Dec 2014, It's at a good enough stage to go ahead and release it to you now, a month earlier!

All your names are in the thank you section of the credits page here:

http://do.odedsharon.com/FlappyPotatoSalad/credits

The most updated version of game for each of the platforms is available here:

smarturl.it/FlappyPotatoSalad

And you can use Humble Widget Keysender to claim the DRM free downloadable desktop version (pc/mac/linux).

https://www.humblebundle.com/store/keyresender

Just use the email you filled up in the survey.

I might update the game a little more. For example:  I have sounds that I want to add (actually made by a FPS supporter) and a big list of ideas of improvements.  If I do, I'll keep you posted. 

For now, I'm focusing on development of Bolt Riley .

Thanks again!

Oded and the potato.

Hey all.

I'm writing this post as I am literally dodging rockets fired into Tel-aviv, with alarms going off daily, forcing us to stop whatever we are doing and seek shelter.

These are missile interception smoke residue, a few minutes after an attack when it's safe to go out again.

I wrote a note on facebook about it as this war began (feel free to read and comment), but since things have escalated a bit...

I was planning on developing Flappy Potato Salad and improving it as part of the summer game jam. But that was cancelled.
Another event by Google for Game developers here- cancelled.

This will not get me down, and I am still developing games, and concentrating on making them fun. 

Often, no time to put clothes on. Me and my kid Yoni at the bomb shelter.

 I was tempted to add content related to my feelings towards this war into the game, like having to face alarm sirens as you play the game, or protect yourself from missiles, but for now prefer to focus on more fun things.
Unless there is a demand for it, and will make it into a stretch goal.

Game Development and progress!




Some people asked me, "Is this a joke campaign?"
My answer is , Yes, and No.
Sure, It's a joke, but I'm dedicated to make this game, with your help.


With the budget and spare I have right now, I've already launched the game in several platforms.

Web, Android, and Windows 8 and windows phone 8 app stores are already available.

I'm putting some convenient links to all platforms as i add them here. http://do.odedsharon.com/FlappyPotatoSalad/ 

This is also where you can play the game online in your browser.
You should note that i make updated to some platforms sooner than other, so there might be slightly different versions in each one. 

I've also created a Humble Widget where you can get the game for desktop (and backers will also get this game through that). 

Steve Alexander who backed the project for $25 gets his name featured in the game already. (Your name can be featured too!)

The Potato Salad Whisperer.

Here are videos of me saying some of your names while working on the game.

I'm using Trello to keep track of game tasks.


You can take a look and voice your opinions about the game, and i'll add these tasks, and you can see my progress : http://bit.ly/FPSTrello

Other projects

On August 4th, i'm preparing to launch a game with two partners who are former students of mine. It's called Avner. It's a fun physics puzzle platformer. Keep an eye for it!

We are also preparing for the launch of Rose. A first person horror adventure game. It's already available on OUYA and since yesterday Windows 8 store. Expect to hear more about that soon also.

What to help ?

To the future!

no matter how I look at it, and despite some nasty commentary about nor being original, I am having fun with this campaign and game, and I'm certainly taking it seriously. It offers a nice distraction of the horrors that are happening outside here.

Have fun!
