    Hi all, i'm here to write our latest "small project" : Bored Ogre which is still in development but almost done.

    First a little bit of story
    In Bored Ogre, players will play as the Ogre as he tries to complete an increasingly difficult set of levels in which he has to launch the knights in specific targets, very similar to golf, but played on his dinner tables and using spoons instead of clubs.

    More details will come, but in the meantime take look at a preview video !

    Stay tuned for more infos, and please don't hold any questions, feedback and ideas you might have.

    Thanks for your time !


    Update 8/18/2017 :
    Bored Ogre back on track !
    Here the first of a series of Bored Ogre family portraits

    Update 9/2/2017 :
    New, very condensed, preview video ahead of release (sometime next week)

    UPDATE 9/6/2017
    Bored Ogre is now available (FREE) both on the AppStore and on GooglePlay store !

    Great thanks for the kind words and feedback ! We are having a great deal of fun developing Bored Ogre, but can't yet commit to a release date. Can probably say that it should not take more than 1 month of additional work to release it.

    In the meantime the Ogre got a new entertainment device and he will soon post about it :)

    Thanks ! We have set up a great series of fun "obstacles" the Knight has to avoid / fly through to complete the levels.

    Other thing we haven't yet mentioned is that while the knight is "flying" you can use the accelerometer to slightly adjust his trajectory, allowing for cooler launches and more variation on how a user can take on a level.

    Hope to have soon more info and screenshots.

    Great thanks to all again for the cool feedback

    Here is a fast gameplay video of one of the levels, there are still many placeholder assets and video doesn't convey the device "tilting" to slightly steer the knight while in air, but it should give a decent idea of actual game play.

    Happy to write that Bored Ogre project after some months of suspension is back on track for a very soon release .
    There are now 2 new game modes other than main "Golf" one, "Darts" and "Feed the Shark", both supporting local multiplayer for some fast ogre action.
    More info soon, but in the meantime here the first of a series of family portraits the Bored Ogre is proud of.

    As we get closer to release,
    here a fast and very condensed gameplay video of Bored Ogre


    Game now has 3 game modes :
    - Golf : 30 levels with many scoring possibilities to compete on Game Center leaderboards.
    - Darts : compete with up to 4 players on same device for the highest score.
    - Toss : inspired by the glorious Paper Toss, up to 4 players on same device can compete to feed the ogre pet sharks.
    We have also included in the game a short illustrated tale to read about the story of Bored Ogre.

    Hope you'll enjoy it.
