Happy Holidays, and new character "Eye Guy"

Saturday, December 20, 2008

Hope everyone is relaxing and having a great holiday instead of reading this post! Here is a little purple present in your Zero Gear stocking. This has to be our most ridiculous character yet, it's a blast to play with the colors and put items on this little dude.

if you direct your internet browsing machines to, the main Zero Gear website, you will see it has gotten a nice little face lift.

While Brian is working on a re-write of part of the network system (keep an eye out for a blog post about that soon) I took advantage of some of the down time to doll it up a bit.

Take a while to look around, let me know if you find any little typos or errors!

Nominate Scoops for Best Casual Game!

Tuesday, December 16, 2008

Zero Gear contributor and also my brother Ian Marsh, is the creator of a rather popular iPhone game called Scoops (iTunes link). If you haven't played it you should buy it, it's a great little game about stacking ice cream scoops.

Here is the "scoop", has created the BestAppEver awards site to try and choose a list of the best apps of 2008 not based solely off sales numbers (like Apple’s).
Click Here to nominate Scoops for the Best Casual Game! I think it matches the category description pretty well: “The game that is easy to pick up and play while you wait for your coffee to brew”.

RinkyDink level video

Friday, December 5, 2008

I needed an excuse to try out YouTube's new HD video format so I decided to try posting a short flyby of a new level I am making called RinkyDink. RinkyDink is the same "goal" mode gameplay as Kick It, only with ice and a puck. It is hard to pick out in the video but the ice in the rink is using our patented, cutting edge, "Reflect-o-Matic" reflection whizzbang technology.
