Update to 1.1 and video coming soon

Ok, I´ve completed the modifications. This is the list of changes:
  • Changed the main menu. I´ve erased the three rotating balls and added two cubes, one for the Play menu and another for the Shop menu. Both cubes rotates through an invisible point each one opposed to the other. Don´t worry, the cube text is always visible to the player. I´m still thinking about let the cubes rotate as described or let them stay there.
  • The first time you play, you´re forced to play the tutorial. It´s about a minute and it shows you how to move in the cave, select and match objects and use the accelerometer.
  • Killed those ugly worms. Cubes, spheres and cones are the new pieces. At least it´s brighter now.
Video is in process and it will be ready today or tomorrow. I´ll look for errors and send it to Apple in the following hours.

An update is coming...

I´m stuck with the new design of the objects. You may already know my lack of design capabilities looking at the “worms” in The Cave but I still want a little change in this game. I´ve also started to work on the next project for which I´ll count with a good designer. I don´t want to talk about it at least until I can show you something and that will take me a looong time but I promise you the results will worth the wait. I hope I will be able to show you some screenshots of the new objects in The Cave this week and have an update for it in the following days.

"Original idea for a 3D environment. Nice."

That´s an opinion from another user in the Unites States. I´m glad you enjoyed it but wait until the first update in the upcoming weeks, that will give The Cave a better look. I´m almost done with the integrated tutorial and preparing the main menu and pieces redesign. No more worms, please.

A re-think of The Cave

I´ve been thinking in the past days about how to change The Cave to be: first, more visually attractive and second, more playable. After some different options running in my head I think I´ve reached a solution. I want to rethink the idea so I still don´t want to say anything here. At this moment I´m changing the tutorial and the main menu but I´ve been very busy the past days and next weekends will not be available for me so it will probably take some weeks. I´ll keep you posted.
