Prisoner 84 Update Now Available

— by
30th July 2010

The latest update for Prisoner 84 has just passed submission so should be appearing on all iTunes App Stores over the next day or so.

The update hopefully addresses most of the main issues people were having with the game, including: a fix for the sound-related crash bug that some iPhone 4 users were experiencing during key card swipe and slider hold games; as well as including a few GUI tweaks and improvements, like a larger directional pad to hopefully make movement a lot easier.

Hidden Fan Shop is Open for Business, and Prisoner 84 Update Coming Soon

— by
27th July 2010

Just a quick update to say that I’ve recently set up a Hidden fan shop over at Zazzle. If you would like to show your support and help us out in a small way so that we can continue to do what we love, then why not impress your friends with a handsome Hidden Games t-shirt? I will hopefully get around to adding more designs at some point, and of course if anyone has any requests then we will be happy to oblige.

In other news we have just submitted v1.1 of Prisoner 84 to Apple. This update will hopefully fix some of the issues people have been experiencing during the game, so if all goes well it should be live on iTunes very soon. As ever, we will keep you informed right here!

Prisoner 84’s Gib System

— by
6th July 2010

With our third game almost complete and nearly ready to submit to Apple, we thought we’d take this opportunity to reveal in more detail some of the unique features you can find in Prisoner 84.

One feature in particular which we’re quite proud of is the basic gib system that we have on our enemies. The system allows random parts of the body to fly off when the enemy is shot at by the player, as you can see in these screenshots…

It’s not an amazingly detailed or complex system but it does add variety to enemy encounters, as it allows you to shoot the flesh off the torso, head, arms and legs to reveal the skeleton! It can get pretty intense when you have enemies chasing after you who are each showing different degrees of damage!
