First of all: A big warm hug a from us to all of you who bought Beat Sneak Bandit. And many many thanks for all the kind words – It means a lot to us!
We thought it would be cool to do a little a round up of all things bandit, now then. Ok?
First. Critical reception. Wow. We’re super duper mega overwhelmed by it. Currently we have a metascore of 94 on Metacritic. That makes Beat Sneak Bandit one of the highest rated iOS games – EVER. Crazy! Here’s a couple of links to some of the glowing reviews, in case you missed them:
In all this Beat Sneak Bandit madness it’s easy to forget that when we announced Bumpy Road in 2011, we mentioned a Mac version. Whatever happened to that? Well, a lot of stuff happened that made us down prioritize that version, but now it’s in the making again.
We won’t make any promises yet as to when it will come out, it’s hard to juggle all of our projects being only two persons. We do a quite a bit of more stuff than you see – tiny bit of contract work, administrative stuff, prototyping, idea scribbling and bar fighting.
Anyhow! Here’s how Bumpy Road looks in all it’s 720p glory (click!)
It’s controlled with a mouse and it works brilliantly (in fact, all levels in the iOS version are developed, played and tested with a mouse before tested on touch devices) – and you’ll be able to choose a range of different cursors! We have another control scheme planned as well, but we have to test it out thoroughly before making a decision if it stays or not. If it works it will be a pretty novel and fun thing!
