Rogue Rocket co-founder Richard Sun penned THIS in-depth piece for Gamasutra, outlining the trials and tribulations of bringing a high-quality premium game to iPad and, hopefully, Steam (the greenlight campaign on Steam started just a few days ago). Starting with the inception of the concept, detailing their initial meetings with Microsoft, and going all the way to the difficulties of translating positive press reviews into actual sales, the article represents a gracious peek into the processes of Rogue Rocket and the challenges facing premium mobile/PC titles.
“Gunpowder challenges you on many levels, be it in planning your overall approach to vigilante vandalism or the sometimes complex execution of it all. And although making progress never gets that difficult to do, perfection can be a sometimes herculean feat. This is the hallmark of a well made puzzle game.” Gunpowder continues to rack up favorable reviews for the Rogue Rocket team, this time from technologytell.com.
Rogue Rocket’s newest offering, the iPad version of their 2013 Windows 8 release Gunpowder, received a rating of 4.5/5 today on Touch Arcade. Touch Arcade gushes “…We have the simple story of a hero trying to bring down the baddie told in such a classic cat-and-mouse way that Gunpowder will appeal to both fans of puzzle games and cartoons alike.”
