Trenches: Generals iPad gets global multiplayer
Posted by Michael on Friday, July 29, 2011Hold on tight, folks and loyalists ... I've got big news ...
The iPad version of Trenches: Generals goes global with today's update.
You asked for it and we listened ... here it is ... GameCenter Global Multiplayer.
Go get it now, it's out there and ready to bring your productivity to a screeching halt. Remember our challenge: Kris and I were able to hold off 26 waves of Jerry before succumbing to the inevitable. If you did better, tweet us and let us know @thundergamewrks
If you want an easy first win, my GameCenter name is SkizzlePig. For a little more of a challenge, try KrispyJones (our Minister of Propaganda)
Also, in this build ... the AI isn't quite so brutal.
Yep, life is good in iPad land.
Slay on, my friends!
Trenches: Generals update submitted
Posted by Michael on Friday, July 22, 2011At long last the Trenches: Generals multiplayer update has been submitted. The Generals multiplayer update includes GameCenter global multiplayer and Bluetooth to the existing split-screen multi.
We've been playing ... er ... testing it for about a week now and it's SO much fun. Playing Wave Skirmish is super fun. Kris and I were able to hold off 26 waves of Jerry before succumbing to the inevitable. If you did better, tweet us and let us know @thundergamewrks
In addition to multiplayer, we've also added in some tweaks based on your suggestions. So ... the German artillery isn't quite so brutal. You'll also find yet more gameplay polish. Yep ... the Thunder never rests.
Slay on, my friends!
Next Generals update
Posted by Michael on Monday, July 4, 2011Before I forget ... Happy Independence Day to everyone in the States.
You've spoken and hearing listening. The next Trenches: Generals update is underway and I hope we'll have something to submit this coming week. What's in the update? In general, it's a ton of little bugs fixes and tweaks based on your emails to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks, too, for emailing us with your issues prior to leaving a premature bad review. Most of the issues can be handled easily ... simply by hard resetting your iPad.
... but that's not the super exciting stuff. What's the super exciting stuff? How about GameCenter global multiplayer in Trenches: Generals? Yep, it's coming ... we're working on it right now.
Then Perks in Skirmish ... a Trenches loyalist emailed us and said (basically), "No, Perks in Skirmish mode?!? What gives?!?" So, we took that as marching orders. Brilliant idea too, Essam. We're thinking the same thing ... "What gives?"
Now, off you go to light some bottle rockets and firecrackers!
