Summer 2011 Studio Update

skyline iconThings have been a little quiet on the blog lately but rest assured that we have tons and tons of great things happening here at Rocket 5. We currently have 2 iOS games in development and over the summer we shipped a new photo app called “Eyeball Me” for an overseas TV show.

XS Force is alive and well but doesn’t look like it’s going to release in time for our previous “coming summer 2011” promise, we’re all kind of bummed about that (making the promise I mean). We got a lot of great feedback from friends and the press at GDC so we decided to push the gameplay in a new direction which we’re all really excited about.

Alarm DogThe really big news here is that we’ve started working on a new game with Mujia Liao, a super talented artist from right in here in Toronto. And that’s not all! Cathy Feraday is coming on board to do the animations for the game (and for XS Force too) so there’s no doubt that this will be one of our best and biggest games yet. We’re not ready to announce any details about the game at this point but this little dog is one of the characters that will be appearing in the new game.

We’re going to be revealing a lot more cool stuff as XS Force and the “other game” (can’t wait to tell you!) get a little further along in development so be sure to follow us on Twitter, Facebook and right here at rocket5studios.com to keep up to date on all the latest.

And finally I just wanted to say thank you to all the people who visit our site and play our games. Last month rocket5studios.com had over 18 thousand hits and our games and apps were downloaded over 34 thousand times! We wouldn’t be able to do this without your love and support.
