Enter The Junkyard

Yeah, it’s been quiet around here lately. Ooh look – there’s some tumbleweed.

Funny old game this #indiedev business. The bottom’s (finally) falling out of the mobile Java market and, let’s face it, it’s practically impossible to make any worthwhile cash from the AppStore or Google Play due to the woeful lack of curation and avalanche of sub-prime content therein. It’s all about the marketing these days. Fine if you have the budget or are a marketeer. I’m not – I just want to make cool games.

So myself and @PVBroadz have changed tack a little and have formed Joystick Junkyard. We’re not ditching mobile but are developing quirky, high-quality ‘future retro’ titles with a focus on more traditional gaming platforms such as PCs and consoles as much as phones and tablets. We’ve just completed a playable alpha-demo of our first title – ‘Attack Of Giant Jumping Man‘.
