    As the developer of Blue Attack and Blue Defense, I'm interested to know: what do you think I'm working on right now, and how big of a project do you think it is? I wouldn't want to disappoint you all if your expectations are too high... but I don't want you to think I'm just sitting on my hands over here. :p

    So, for those who have played Blue Attack! and Blue Defense! - what do you think is next?


    (note: those who know, or think they know, might want to just tease the others who are guessing. it's more fun! :p )

    A TD game with blue spaceships.

    Note: I don't own Blue Attack or Blue Defense but have heard great stuff about them. :)

    Well, to be honest, I'm expecting Geometry Wars. If you can't give us that, then I quite frankly don't think you deserve the title "dev".

    lol, no - but that's not a bad idea! :p

    We've already put way too much work into this project to just start doing something else right now, so if you do suggest something good, we won't get around to it for a while - so don't get your hopes up. :p

    mostly, I'm bored, and not tired enough to go to sleep, so I figured I'd get all mysterious in the forums.

    I haven't been around in the forums lately - I guess I'm also catching up on all these games I've missed while I was busy making my own. :)

    I agree, the graphics of blue attack in a tower defense game would be very cool. Btw, you've done a great work, BA is one of the best games out there.

    Strategy RTS control game
    P.S I would pay MONEY to get a game where u control an army and u must take over by using tatics. And u get to play the battles to.

    I actually heard that a few people found Blue Defense because they were looking for a TD game, and were quite surprised with their 99 cent purchase at the time.

    Blue Defense is most definitely not a Tower Defense game. :p

    I know you were working on something that you thought you might scrap because it didn't have much fun in it, I'm not sure you did scrap it though . . .

    yeah, that was the Typer game. I just couldn't make it fun (yet)...

    It's on the back burner, I haven't completely scrapped it, but I can't see anything short of a major wave of creativity bringing me back to that project.

    So it's not Blue Typer. :p

    I probably will. :cool:

    I doubt you'll get it, though! :p

    I demand exact wording, not just ball-park. :p

    All wrong! ha!

    "Aquamarine Insurrection" with the name under the app as "Insurrect!"


    I kind of like this convention, I have "Blue *noun*", and then the caption for the app is "Verb!"

    ooooh, asking the hard-hitting questions, now... you're poking in the right direction. :p

    I suppose answering arbitrary questions might give it away... like if I answered the question "What is the name of the game" or something silly...


    the answer to your question is "no".

    take away the quotes, if having "no" in quotes freaks you out and makes you feel that it's sarcastic. :D
