Yup! I might release some sneak shots when the game is more ready.


Btw, the user "Sparks" is programming, so he's the real creator! I've asked that he get all the profits for the game.

hi I think it is a great idea and i would love too see more virtual pets and more that you can play games with. I know you guys hate this but i hate all the bloody games like what is it beat the puppy less watch and see if the animals fall into a blender. Not all of us like that kind of thing. I love animals and all life is worth something. I would love too see what you come up with.

That's why I'm vegan, I love animals and I think that sometimes we all need a pet, even if we can't see our pets. Besides, games are fun XD

Next time you spend a half hour on making transparencies work and working on making items less blurry, I'll tell you that you did absolutely no work.

I'm surprised that took half a minute. I spend quite a lot of time messing about in Photoshop, but I dunno why the hell you needed transparencies for that, just get a brush.

...and less blurry, that's supposed to be default.

Alright I'm gonna stop being an ass now. I still think everything I said is true but I know it's not terribly nice. In all honesty I think you should invest in something like Photoshop cause I've seen your comics and they were decent enough for me to read all of them, so I think with a better program your stuff would improve a hell of a lot. You obviously like art and design so it'd be a good investment in the long run.

thx :) The simple graphics are what makes the characters fun and cute. Somehow, everyone on the internet who sees someone who says they're designing something basically assumes that person uses Photoshop and flash to create 3D 400-frame animations.

Take this as sound advice Saint, this is not to 'show you up' or anything else, I did this in half and hour, I'd gladly give you the file if you'd like.

You encouraged us to do better, here it is.

I kept your 'branding' so I did not change the font you used, only how it appeared.

I know, but I already have the graphics mapped out, and besides, I never put it down. Why you're flaming me, I don't get. PS: If you want me to say the truth; your graphics would not fit with the game at all, you failed at doing better, you managed to screw up my art though. Good for you! :D :D :D :mad:

Hello everybody.

I am the developer for blinks.

Along with working with Saints, I have to support him.

As a programmer, the thing I lack is Photoshop or Gimp skills.

I believe Saints has said skills, which is why I have agreed to program this.


For the people who are actually interested:

I have been really working hard and have about 30 % of the game done, in two days.

Also. If Saints agrees, I will try to port it over to the Mac.

As for beta testers: maybe.


If you have ANY questions, please contact me at pearapps [AT] gmail.com

SeanIvy
08-14-2009, 07:00 AM
Does it make a difference that I'm 12 years old???

Yes, unfortunately it does. I understand you have a dream to get your art into a game, but poor art won't help you.

Please remember, I worked at home, doing 3d modeling and graphics on the side, for 16 years before anyone thought I was good enough to pay me for it.

Why you're flaming me, I don't get.

I wasn't intending to 'flame' you.

I'm a professional graphic artist who was trying to help, you asked us to do better and than showed contempt for our efforts.

I'm trying to help.

It was meant to be constructive criticism, I'm sorry if you thought I was flaming.

You people are all jerks about this game. TouchArcade sucks, all the members hate you for no reason. I'm only sticking around for a few select threads.

This attitude will not help you, I looked back through your thread and I see more posts praising your efforts than bashing your art.

Keep at it, don't give up, eventually you will have your dream.

K... but my art isn't poor...

Don't get me wrong, I even said that most people were praising your efforts, and count me on that list. If you have a dream, go for it.

I merely said the execution of your art itself was poor. For a 12 year old, it's great. You did well, and the creature design itself is nice, I like it. It's a combination between a Pac-Man ghost, and a Squid. It's cartoon-y and will fit the game well.

I stand, however, by my statement. "the execution of your art itself is poor." Don't take it hard, it's not a flame, or a personal attack.

You are trying to create a game that people will buy, and if the game play is there, it'll sell. But the truth is ugly, people tend to buy first with their eyes, and second with the gameplay. If a game looks low quality, they tend to not buy it.

I'd suggest then, making it free to begin with, and when people know about it and like the game play, than you can charge. And keep practicing with your art, as it improves, improve the game.

[edit] I used there, instead of their... I leave the grammar to my wife, and she corrected me.

Compared to other Apps on the AppStore, you're art is not fine, it's terrible. I'm sorry that people are giving you false hope just because you're a kid, but you have to understand that you aren't talented enough to design a successful game. You're going to be disappointed if you ignore that fact.

I looked through your post history, and I haven't seen one post so far that doesn't say "this game sucks" or crazy criticism. All you ever do is bash people.

You did well, and the creature design itself is nice, I like it. It's a combination between a Pac-Man ghost, and a Squid. It's cartoon-y and will fit the game well.

Don't forget, they're part planarian!

In that case you totally missed the post which contained some pretty good constructive criticism.

How many devs do you see around here that respond to criticism with "Oh. My. God."? None, and there's a reason for it.

When I made a post criticising some aspects of the Plushed gameplay that were seen in the trailer, do you know how the dev retaliated? Did he, like you, proceed to send me several angry messages demanding to know why I wouldn't praise the game? No - blacksmithgames sent me a polite message asking me to elaborate on my criticism, and asked me how I thought they could improve the game. I'm sure they went through their topic, and made an effort to find out what people wanted, and learnt from the criticism.

You are a rude, impatient little boy who quite honestly, shouldn't be allowed on the internet.

No, he told them the truth, which exactly what he told you.

Edit: Admittedly I like the idea of this game, I'm just not a huge fan of the graphics. If I was you I'd do what Brazilian Rider said; draw them out, scan them and then go over them in paint. It would make them look a lot better.

No, it was criticism. I told you what needs improving and I gave you some good information on how to go about doing it, then I made an optimistic comment about your future in design.

Secondly, the dev team doesn't only consist of programmers, it's everyone involved in the development of the game, including sound team, researchers, public relations and graphic designers.

Lastly, (and maybe I'm contradicting myself here), I wouldn't call scribbling around in paint "graphics design" anyway, anymore than I would a child painting on the wall with lipstick.

To tell you the truth saints. Twazzock's art seemed like it would make the game much better. Not saying you would have to use it though.

Gimp is not quite photoshop but you can do much better artwork than you put up originally on it. If you fooled around with gimp a little bit you might be able to make the characters smoother that way you wouldn't get the pixelated affect around them.

From experience in the app store if theirs anything I avoid its games with 1. Poor gameplay 2. Minimal Screens. As long as you hit these two points I think it will be good for you.

Seeing as you found a good Dev for the game you should be fine. When you are deeper into construction I would love to see some gameplay footage.

I have loved art for a long time just like yourself and I can imagine how you feel about your project. Hopefully you understand. Im trying to stray away from the other multiple unnecessary flaming posts. Also I am 15 and as long as you continue to work hard at this app age can have little if any affect on it.

Hmmmm... I'm starting to have second thoughts on this. The MS Paint style graphics worked in Trace (http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=289446636&mt=8) so they might look good in this. saintsalive has a good developer making this game so it could be a lot better once we see it in motion. In fact I found one of the sprite sheets for a Blink that saintsalive posted in this thread (http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=21719) and quickly made it into an animation below:

Hey Saint's, I'm a long time lurker, never really post here though.

I'd just like to say, you're doing great. Keep a level head, don't let anyone get to you and make you angry. Keep your chin up and make Blinks the best you can. People here are used to great graphics and long adventures, but I understand that this is your first real title on the AppStore.

Some things I would recommend to you:
-Stick to your word. If you say you will do something, then do it.
-Take on constructive criticism, ignore haters.
-Try to release updates frequently. Look at Pocket God. Point Proven.
-Slowly but surely, improve the graphics and functionality.
-Get the word out there. Use promo codes wisely.
-Possibly set up a competition, it will attract people to your game.
-Take your time, don't release something unfinished.

If you follow those rules, you should be fine. I wish you and the other dev the best of luck.

I understand you more than others, but to hate on a game because its original promo, that was made before the game even started to be developed, used a Times New Roman Font is just kinda rude. But I like that you're actually giving helpful advice towards the game instead of "The art sucks, you must've been on drugs" or "That's like a child with lipstick on a wall".

cheese and rice!!you sound like some brutal ogre sweat shop task master (not saying you are one just saying you sound like one but if you really are then one i guess thats okay too) paying kids a dollar to make 1000 pairs of nikes.frequent updates are good yes but a quality app is also worth a dollar i think . with regards to the art i think all it needs is a drop shadow affect behind the blinkies maybe stroke the blinkers a little with light gray or white then the thingies look like paper cutouts nd give the illusion of polishness without changing the graphics really . if you would like a a good painting program, saintsalive, thats free try http://paint.net/ for paint .net. it is a program that was originally intended to be the successor to ms paint. for painting it is alot better than gimp or paint and did i mention its free. oh i guess i did. well its free then

Lol, thanks! I do have paint.net, but I hardly use it. I'll have to try it again.

so what can you actually do on blinks?
just watch them float around and then press a plus or minus button to be either nice or mean :S

No, I believe that you can interact with the blinks in different ways. The plus and minus buttons are to add or subtract the total amount of blinks on the screen.

It's probably too early to say much of anything yet, but like the developer said on twitter, the customizing Blinks part is pretty much there. I'll have to wait and see what it looks like and how it works before anything much else is released.

what nice and mean things can you do?

saintsalive
08-23-2009, 11:15 AM

Since it's been submitted, I can explain this. If you gently tap a Blink, it counts as petting him. But, if you double-tap a Blink, it counts as hitting him. There may be new ways to be nice or mean to the Blinks later on... maybe even in this update... :D

There are going to be a few functions in v1.0. Some examples are petting, hitting, adding and subtracting Blinks(You can call forth or send away your 4 Blinks as you please). There is also the score function, which is made up of Mean and Nice points. The more nice you do for your Blinks, you get Nice points, the more mean stuff you do, you get mean points. You can submit these scores to Feint and also tweet them to your twitter. You can change backgrounds by going to your settings app and checking under "Blinks". Also, if you can get it, toy around with the functions of your iPod Touch/iPhone and see if you can find any other surprises. ;)
