2016 In Review and Plans for 2017
2016 is officially over. It was a busy year for us. With the release of different games. 2016 went by real quick but then again time flies when you’re having fun!
In this article we are going to look back at some of the stuff we have done and our games while also taking a look at what we have in plan for 2017.
In the 2016 we released the iOS version of Ginger Roll. Ginger Roll was released in March and was a 3D platform game. We had already released the Android version in December 2015.
This game was our biggest project yet. It was the biggest game we had made with multiple characters to unlock and over 45 different levels spread across 4 diverse worlds.
However while releasing Ginger Roll we did face challenges and problems. Getting the movement and physics mechanic of the game was hard as the game relied heavily on accelerometer to move the character around the game.
We have also written a postmortem on the development and release of Ginger Roll. This goes into details of challenges faced and how we overcame them with the game.
We also released merchandise to coincide with the release of Ginger Roll. We released t-shirts on Amazon.
The next game we released was Animal Brigade. This was an arcade game which got players to put out buildings that were on fire with Animals.
We released this on Android in August 2016 and are working to port it to iOS as well.
Towards the end of 2016 we released a massive update for Ginger Roll which included alternative controls, ability to share game play and much more.
The update made Ginger Roll a lot better, faster and more fun to play.
We already do have plans to release more games and on more platforms. We do have a few ideas already but most of them aren’t no more than ideas.
In 2017 we did want to dab with Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality but that’s for another blog post.
We would like to thank everyone that has supported IRF Media and we will carry on making high quality and exceptionally fun games. If you want to stay clued up to our future releases and updates then you should join our fan club.
