Linkies, a Indie iOS game

Hey fellow gamers!

I'm the sole artist here at VisualDreams and we are currently working on our upcoming game, Linkies. We are a small indie team of three developers. Two coders and one artist and have released two prior games, Capcom published Herman the Hermit and Slam Dunk Basketball.

Linkies is a physics based connect game built in Unity 3D. The game is built in full 3D with lightmapped backgrounds and rigged/animated characters. We have tried to really give the characters life by adding many expressions to the rig. We still have about 1 months left in development so there are a few features and a lot of polish left.

We are currently looking for beta testers for it as the beta will launch in about two weeks. To register for the beta simply follow THIS LINK and register, it takes a minute and after that installation etc is handled directly to your device through email. The beta is for iOS only!

Here is a capture from the alpha...

Thank you guys!

As of now we are on track for the beta test to launch on the 13th of Juli. Friday the 13th, perfect

We are finishing up a few features and polishing some rough edges. So if everything goes as planned you will have something cool to play next weekend!

We will be sending out Linkies Beta #2 today!

We have been listening to all the great feedback from the first beta and have made the levels alot smoother and have also added a system to add stages into each level to make them a little longer. A main menu have also been added as well as a real early version of a endless mode.

So if anyone want to try it simply register through THIS LINK

Thank you guys!

A physics-based connecting game? That looks really fun! I just signed up to help beta test it too. Looking forward to trying it out! (I'm sure my son will also enjoy it.)
