RobbyZ's Blog Indie game devblog for Dragon Audit, 8BitMMO & March of Industry


The Implausible Zone

Over the weekend I participated in the LD34 gamejam.  I wrote and made some art for a short Comedy/Adventure game, which was produced in roughly two days.  It's pretty rough, but people at the jam site seemed to think it was funny, so hopefully you will too 🙂

March of Industry – Now on Android

I've been meaning to get March of Industry running on mobile for a long while now, and so I've been spending a little bit of time here and there to make it happen.  It's finally ready to share, so you can now play it on your Android phones & tablets (I don't have an iPhone, so no iOS version.  Sorry.)

The mobile version is the same as the PC version, but with touch controls.  It even uses the same account system as PC version, so your save files will automatically sync between mobile and PC. It fully supports blueprint modding, translations, and GIF captures also.

I am giving the Android version out free to anyone who bought either the PC (Stripe) or Steam copies of the game.  (This includes Steam codes given out as Novemberbit rewards).   Just go to this page to download the APK.

And if you didn't, then FYI it's unreasonably cheap in Google Play.  😛

Novemberbit 2015 is over!

With $9,043 raised, we've just finished our biggest Novemberbit ever!  Thank you for your generous support!


Most of the backer rewards are already available to be claimed here, however, I'll keep you updated on some of the remaining reward items and the winner of the KJH gold giveaway.

I can also confirm that the winning hat is the Dragonhat, with an overwhelming 91% of votes (rawr!)


Vote for your Exclusive Novemberbit Hat

Thanks to everyone who joined for the hatstream today.  We made SEVEN potential NovemberBit hats.

The Novemberbit reward page has been updated with a voting system.  If you've backed $49+, you can vote for the official Novemberbit Exclusive Reward Hat.  The winning hat will only be available to the $49+ backers.

The hats that don't win will either be discarded, made available for public purchase, or added to my secret hat stockpile.

HatStream2015VoteAlso, wild grass has been fixed so that it gives the correct number of wild grasses.  If you previously claimed them, you can reclaim to get your additional +1 wild grass.

9Bit.2032 – Rotation

9BitMMO build 2032 now includes an optional rotation mode.  Press F8 and you will be able to walk around with the camera following behind the player.  Note there's a lot of bugs with the new mode, but it can be neat to check out stuff from a new angle 😉
