Default Video blogging the creation of an iPhone game

Hi everyone:

Edit:
I'm posting all episodes in this thread. Subscribe to this thread if you want notification of new episodes:
Episode 1: An Introduction
Episode 2: Prototyping
Episode 3: Replacing the physics system + first hint about game
Episode 4: Box2D integration + changes based on feedback
Episode 5: First gameplay footage!
Episode 6: Showing texture atlases and bitmap fonts
Episode 7: The new Spawn Manager and all new art direction
Teaser Trailer: Announcing: Monkeys in Space: Escape to Banana Base Alpha
Episode 8: A recent move, the teaser trailer, play testing
Episode 9: Featuring: First Gameplay Footage!


I posted a poll in another forum asking if people might be interested in seeing video blog posts chronicling the development of an iPhone game. The response was positive, so I'm posting the first in a series of video blogs that will document the process of creating an iPhone game.

At this stage, I have just starting working on a prototype for a new game concept I'm playing around with. This first video talks a little bit more about that. With future videos I hope to talk more about specifics and show work in progress along the way.

If you have suggestions for what you'd like to see me talk about, please let me know and I'll see what I can do. Let me know what parts of game creation you've always wondered about and I'll do my best to answer your questions. I hope you enjoy the videos!

I enjoyed it too. I am excited to see what comes out of it... I also thought it was strange that you said "i look forward to seeing you again" considering it should actually be the other way around.

@fenrir911 - Thanks, I'm glad you found it interesting. I hope to have more hands-on type stuff in future posts.

Haha, I hadn't thought of that. It felt natural when I said it, but now it sounds strange when I watch it. Oh well! Maybe I'll have to come up with a different sign-off next time.

A Vlog about how iPhones are made, huh? Sounds like someone's bringing the spirit of Fred Rogers about the device. I'd very much like to see it.

Very curious about what this game is all about..

Anyways, try not to put every sweat into a iPhone game, usually if somethings too complicated, people won't play it.

P.S: 3D, pickup and play, and platformer games are usually the ones on the top

I've posted Episode 3 in new thread here:

http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?p=388391

Would people prefer that I post new episodes in new threads each time, or would they rather I keep everything in one thread? One thread makes it easier to subscribe to, but then you have to read to the end of the thread every time. Anyone have a preference?

One thread is better.. not sure why anyone would want to watch it in new thread each time.
