I didn't realise that its been so long since I last posted a blog message.
To be honest 2011 wasn't really a good year for Addictive 247. We didn't release any new games and motivation was at an all time low.
Many projects were started but none were completed. They now sit on my hard drive covered in dust.
To be fair some of the ideas that I prototyped were addictive and would be excellent full games but motivation and dedication towards them failed.
I hope this will change in the New Year.
Anyway as a parting gift to 2011 our game Addictive Football is now FREE!!
Grab it from http://www.addictive247.co.uk/addictivefootball.htm
This is not a limited offer and the game will remain free. Enjoy and have fun!
See you in the New Year!

There you go, enough of that stuff as already it's been a bad start to the year and I'm not going into details.
Anyway, onwards and upwards and onto game development. . .
Just before Christmas we were looking into Spoon - and it looked good. It's a very clever idea which enables users to launch desktop apps (and games) from the web with no installs.
Now I wanted to see if it would work with our games so I contacted them, signed an agreement and sent the guys at Spoon the full version of Skin & Bones.
I wasn't sure how this would work as Skin & Bones stores files on the users hard drive for save points, scores etc.
Spoon only had the full version of the game to work with. Not the source code but the .exe that any person would get when buying the game.
A few days later Skin & Bones was launched on Spoon at http://www.spoon.net/Skin-Bones
I gave it a run through and it works perfectly!
Basically you can now play Skin & Bones (for a limited time before you have to pay) on the web!
This isn't the cut-down Flash version that we made, but the full downloadable version in all it's glory - how cool is that!
The experience with Spoon.net so far has been excellent and I can see them growing massively in 2011. Expect to see more of our games on there very soon.
