    Hi!

    As a developer of the upcoming game Patronus I would like to show you a small clip from it.

    I would be great the hear from you what you think of it so far.

    Sound effects are missing in the build.

    Graphics and music is done by some of the most talented people in Sweden.

    We are planning to submit to Apple sometime in August.

    Well, while I wait for the video to load... the menu screen looks nice...

    Ok it's loaded. Very nice looking game, I love the colour of the nebula in the background and how it seems to move slowly as you play. I can't quite tell from the video what the aim of the game is but there seems to be enough going on to be interesting. As the video says it's level one I'm assuming it'll get a lot more chaotic the more you play.

    This could be a buy for me when it's released so I'll keep my eye on it :)

    Oh, and good job on having trophies and stat options too... every game should have those by default these days.

    Well, first of all the idea is to create a game that looks good, feels good and sounds good. It should also load very fast and be something you pick up and play for 5-10 minutes.

    The action can best be described as a shooter, but instead of a gun you explode. The explosion area grows with time so in order do do well you have to plan you explosions well. When exploding many enemies you will be rewarded with bonuses and thing to pick up that helps you in your battle, such as invisiblity, slow motion, health, mega bomb.

    There are many more thing in store than I just described, but that will have to wait a little more to be revealed.

    ah, okay, so you are gathering enemies to follow you, but not touch you, and then you explode...what triggers your exploding? ...is it timed or when you reach a specific area?

    the concept is definitely interesting

    You are right. Your trigger the explosion by touching anywhere on screen. You steer by tilting. It's actually very precise and it feel great.

    Tht pink thing is controld by us, we have to control it & ensure that the spaceships do not attack us.

    Its more like minigore, apart from the shooting part :)

    I've put a new video of Patronus. We are getting close to beta now and expect to submit for review in october.

    You steer by tilting, collect purple stuff to grow explosion radion and explode by tapping. The game will feature online leader-board, trophies and great game play.

    Looks very nice. This one will definitely one to watch. The game concept is a nice different take on the shooting everything, and have an expanding explosion zone is great.

    Chain lost is from getting touched by an enemy? Is the next touch fatal, or how do you die?

    This game looks absolutely amazing. I especially love the music, definitely something I can play to. Count me in for BETA if you're looking for BETA testers ;).
