Since our last post we’ve been hard at work on various projects both self-published (with various development partners) and work-for-hire on some exciting new download platforms. We’re really excited about working on some of the digital distribution platforms with their easy access to market and through Facebook/Twitter it’s much easier to communicate with end-users than it ever has been in the past.
We’ll be attending the Develop Conference in Brighton this week, if anyone would like to meet for a chat with us please drop us an email via the details on the contact page.
Puzzler Collection (DS) seems to have benefitted from a price-drop in the last few weeks.
The puzzle game title, programmed by ourselves across DS, PC, PSP, Wii, PS2 in conjunction with our good friends at Tuna Technologies and published by Ubisoft/Route 1 Games, has shot up to the number 1 spot in the all formats budget chart!
We’ve been receiving quite a bit of praise on our new look website so it’s probably about time for an update on what we’re up to. On a more day to day basis I’m trying to tweet interesting notes about what I’m up to (I’ll mostly be sticking to updates with a coding theme) at http://www.twitter.com/barog
Work wise due partly to the current economic climate we unfortunately have had one of our in-progress projects (a really exciting and great looking DS/PC music game) put on the backburner.
The positive result is that we’ve been able to catch up with some of those tasks that get pushed back so we’ve been tidying up and improving some of our core technologies.
We’ll have some updates regarding our new projects in the next couple of months and possibly some updates on the exciting smaller projects for new and old clients we’re working on.
We have been enjoying reading some great reviews of Football Director, as of writing this post this has helped us achieve a score of 73 on MetaCritic.
We’ve also begun the final marketing push which should hopefully involve some regional and national coverage for ourselves and Sports Director.

A collaboration between three Yorkshire games companies has resulted in a number 2 hit in the Nintendo DS charts, helping Ubisoft to be the first company in three years to beat Nintendo’s own software sales on DS. Ubisoft’s Puzzler Collection is the result of a unique collaboration between three local studios; Tuna Technologies, Route 1 Games and Four Door Lemon.
“It’s just another example of the dynamic, imaginative and creative games industry we have in our region,” said Sector Manager of Game Republic, Jamie Sefton. “Yorkshire is the place to be for successful games companies.”
Puzzler Collection features 4 classic and very popular puzzles: Crossword, Wordsearch, Fitword and Sudoku. It will be released on Wii later this month.
