Dragons Den and Stunt Gal Release

Well, it's set to be a very big week or so for Kempt.

On Thursday we launched the next instalment of our mobile game series "The Magnificent Stunts" - Epic, parkour-inspired, platform/runner "Stunt Gal". You now can install the complete trilogy:

Stunt Gal iconStunt Gal - Available Now!
only on the App Store (iPhone/iPad)
Stunt Guy icon
Stunt Guy 2.0 - Available now on:
Google Play for Android and the App Store for iPhone/iPad
Reg The Roadkill icon
Reg the Roadkill - Out Now!
Only on the App Store for iPhone & iPad

Then, as revealed by the BBC last Sunday and discussed by our MD - Chris Kempt on Facebook today it looks rather like we'll be hitting the screens of the UK on Dragons Den on Sunday the 17th of August - obviously this was filmed a number of months ago now and we're not able to reveal any details of how it went but as their teaser clip clearly shows we were there to pitch the (now basically finished) Magnificent Stunts project - a series of mobile games starring our mythical stunt family which launched back in May with Stunt Guy 2.0.

So, exciting stuff huh?! Will we get the money? Will Chris manage not to swear on national television? Who knows... but in the meantime:

1) Install the games!
2) Check out the BBC Dragons Den page
3) And, if you'd like to stay in touch with the project then sign up for our newsletter,

So, there you go - madness huh? Wish us luck!

Revolution Insert Credits

Yeassss... terrible punny title I know but it kinda seemed appropriate for this!

In the April edition, the amazing people at Revolution have published an excellent piece on online games, specifically Atari's recent decision to focus on this area. I'm sure I'm not alone in thinking that it's about time, after all, we flash game builders have been ripping off their IP for a good decade now :O)

Anyway, I'm pleased as punch that they've chosen to include a bunch of comments from me and apart from some opinion near the end which personally I don't fully agree with it's an excellent piece over all.

You can see the full article on the Revolution website and my comments below it.

TinyTrials Blogged by Guardian... whoohoo!

A couple of weeks back we were privileged to be interviewed by Aleks Krotoski (who writes for the Guardian) on the subject of our latest game TinyTrials which is already scarily successful.

If you're interested in our mad ramblings you'll want to check out her post on the Guardian Blog (note the expert use of name-checking and shameless self promotion!) and once you've done that you'll obviously want to check out the game itself!

TinyTrials will shortly be available to sponsor so please do get in touch if you're interested.



Chris to speak at Casual Connect Hamburg 2009

I'm very pleased to announce that I've again been invited to speak at Casual Connect Europe, the biggest Casual Games conference in Europe. This year I'll be talking all about metrics for games in a talk wittily entitled: Stat's Amazing!, if you're out there be sure to come along and watch me make a tit out of myself in public... again!
