    Hey fellow gamers!

    I'm the sole artist here at VisualDreams and we are currently working on our upcoming game, Linkies. We are a small indie team of three developers. Two coders and one artist and have released two prior games, Capcom published Herman the Hermit and Slam Dunk Basketball.

    Linkies is a physics based connect game built in Unity 3D. The game is built in full 3D with lightmapped backgrounds and rigged/animated characters. We have tried to really give the characters life by adding many expressions to the rig. We still have about 1½ months left in development so there are a few features and a lot of polish left.

    We are currently looking for beta testers for it as the beta will launch in about two weeks. To register for the beta simply follow THIS LINK and register, it takes a minute and after that installation etc is handled directly to your device through email. The beta is for iOS only!

    Here is a capture from the alpha...

    Thank you guys!

    We will be sending out Linkies Beta #2 today!

    We have been listening to all the great feedback from the first beta and have made the levels alot smoother and have also added a system to add stages into each level to make them a little longer. A main menu have also been added as well as a real early version of a endless mode.

    So if anyone want to try it simply register through THIS LINK


    Thank you guys!

    A physics-based connecting game? That looks really fun! I just signed up to help beta test it too. Looking forward to trying it out! (I'm sure my son will also enjoy it.)

    Big fan of the art style throughout your titles. Is that all you? If so, fabulous job! Really sets VD apart. Linkies looks great, too.

    Thanks! We are currently one artist (me) and two programmers at visualdreams. We founded the studio in late 2009 but this is the first game we have gotten the time to actually do a title we want to do.

    Hi
    My name is Kristofer and i´m one of the coders on Linkies. For the last 4 months I have been working like crazy with my two companions at VisualDreams to get this game ready for release in September.
    And yesterday we finally pushed the “Upload” button to Apple.

    I really think we have made a great game, it´s super fun to play and has gorgeous graphics thanks to our talented artist David Marquardt.

    The game won´t be out until September. But in the meanwhile here is the first gameplay trailer for you guys to enjoy!

    Thanks,
    Kristofer Boman

    Have you ever wondered how much a game generates in revenue on launch day? We sure have and with launch day coming closer we got a (hopefully) great idea. Why not put up a site where people can see much a indie developer really earn on launch day?

    So we did... And on the 6th of September you can follow the launch of Linkies at http://www.linkies.se We will present, total number of downloads, earned revenue and position on the US top charts for our new game Linkies in REALTIME!

    The countdown has started!
