News #17 - On the farm and Module game introduction

On the farm - memory game for toddlers

If you read our blog you probably noticed some info about our next planed game for kids - farm animals. Now, it's all prepared and our game is waiting for review and we are happy we will be able to bring it to kids in the next few days!

About the game

On the farm is memory matching game in our own Mr.Fox and friends style. 
You can look forward to 14 beautifully illustrated and fully animated animals. If the kid guess the animal pair, he/she will learn what is the name of the animal and how it sounds like. Then tiny animal appears on the tiny farm scene bellow the cards.
Kids can play and learn the animals in 4 difficulties - 4, 8, 12 and 18 cards.

Oh, you just found the cow !

Game Spot presentation 

Last week we had the great opportunity to present our studio on the Game Spot with special guest Brandon Sheffield from necrosoftgames.com 

You can have a look on the presentation bellow.

MODULE

Above is the first mock ups from one of games we are currently working on - Module.

It's going to be atmospheric sci-fi game balancing between endless runner, puzzle, action and arcade packed in a beautiful low poly world coat.
Because we are in early stage of the creation process we will bring more information and screenshots in the next few weeks and months. 

We've launched also mini site for this game: Module we will update it with stuff like screenshots, dev blog posts, game play videos and more later. If you are fan of this genre, don't forget to subscribe! We are preparing some interesting stuff for the subscribers only :)

If you are wondering why we are posting images and information about games like Module, please read our previous blog post. In short, from the beginning of 2015 our studio works on both kids and casual games for teenagers and adults.

News #16 - PF 2015 and the future of our studio

Dear parents and friends. First of all we want to say big thank you for your big support in the year 2014. It was really though year and we have learned so much during that year.
Thank you !

Future of Mr.Fox and friends

As we wrote it was really hard year and we were thinking about the future of our studio for many many days. To be honest, for a short time, we were thinking about closing our studio ( as couple of kids developers already did, and many are seriously thinking about ).
We changed our minds and decided to stay on the scene, and to bring fresh and even better games for kids. But we know our studio will not survive in the mode it was running during the year 2014. Therefore from the beginning of 2015 Mr.Fox and friends will transform from purely kids games developer to 50% kids game developer and 50% casual game developer for teenagers and adults.
We have some very interesting projects already in the pipeline for both of our branches so stay tuned!

In 2014 we:

News #9 - On the way

Hello, we’re back with really big changes here at Mr.Fox and friends.
After some planning and discussing we decided to move away from Prague, to be closer to our families and friends. We switched both cities and countries, anyone who has moved this way knows what is it all about...
So we are a little bit tired but really happy we are getting slowly back to work.

Nitra

We are now based in a small city called Nitra - 90km away from the Slovakian capital city Bratislava. Nitra is not such a ‘big rush’ city as Prague, which is really great, but it also brings its own challenges. For example although our apartment is situated in the city center, we still have some issues with internet connection. Yes we didn’t inform ourselves about internet connectivity, because our apartment is in the city center, so who would expect any problems? Well, we forgot how it goes here.


What’s the time Mr.Fox?

In the next two weeks we will do our best to bring French and German localisations in next update. 

Coming up next

News #6 - Busy week

Last week we were super busy. We attended the great conference The Kids Want Mobile in Berlin and just couple of hours ago we all together clicked the mouse button and submited our new game to the app store for review. Fingers crossed!!

What's the time Mr.Fox ?

Mr.Fox hits app store in a while!

Mr.Fox hits app store in a while!

Little Mr.Fox is waiting in the line in the app store - for us it's time to do some marketing stuff.
Sure, regarding some articles you can find all around the internet it is probably too late. Yes, we know the theory very well and it sounds so easy and clear. But it was really not possible for us to do it next to creative process and development so hopefully it will be not that late. Greetings to all 1 - 2 people development teams, parents, doing their hard job with love and patience and with vision to deliver the best app possible for the little ones. 

 Anyway, if you want to share our story and games with your blog readers, FB friends or twitter followers just let us know and we can send you promo codes. We would appreciate that!

We are preparing separate blog post about the conference in next few days so to be short we attach only few pictures...

We are back

You've probably noticed the date of our latest post. Yes it's been almost a year since we did our last one. But not because we are lazy, or that we don't know what to write about. On the contrary, we were too busy with creating our second game and its promotion, to find some little spare time for blogging. But we decided to change it now. 

We are preparing some posts about iPad and iPhone games that we play together with our son Adam or about books we read together and of course about news from our little studio, how we work from home, how we manage time to have creative working days and still spend lot of time playing with Adam. 

Stay tuned.
