    Negotiations are still ongling with our applicant for snes development.
    We are however pleased to announce that we have hired a full time animator who has provided some much needed youthful energy to the offices.
    So far he has three animations done.

    Right Spinning Circle,

    And flipping forward circle (still some issues with it though, on some systems it only flips in 180 degree increments, so it may seem jerky on your screen)

    Our android developer is awake and down 2 cups of coffee. He has finished the first android build and is testing it now, but may not be able to finish a cardboard build today.

  4. Waaaaaat??
     
  5. Dont get me wrong, I appreciate the effort you put into this gigantic project, the basic idea is simply awesome, but I dont think it will be a huge success without proper marketing, because in the end, it is just a circle. Dont do too many modifications to it.

    You are absolutely correct. There is no way this project will become a success without proper advertising. We are way too early in the process to be considering any serious advertising however I did place this up on a pole down the street.

    I did not cheat! however as soon as we have more testers involved I may need to in order to stay ahead o.0


    Some will get it, some will not, that is the nature of a circle.
    However do not feel left out, you are officially invited to be among the first to alpha test our flagship product the 'Android Circle'
    Download for the android installer APK can be found here,

    Welcome to the Future, your Circle awaits!

  11. I don't get it either, but I am intrigued by this - I'm often intrigued by things I don't understand... So this is going to be an Android app of some sort involving a red circle with a blue border, right? What is it's purpose, what does it do? Also, how would you see it spinning left or right unless there was some sort of arrow or marker? Flipping forwards you could see, no problem there...

    I am sorry cibernut. I have no wish to deceive anyone. This will never be anything more than a circle.
    No amount of effort, advertizing, formats, animations, operating systems. Not even simple game play elements will ever make it more than what it is.
    A simple circle drawn in mspaint.

    Nothing more, nothing less, and yet it is still awesome!!!

  14. Very good idea with the pole ! Maybe add a QR code to it as well ? But maybe you are right, keep it simple.

    The web version feels as if its somewhat having performance issues and Id recommend to go with the Unreal Engine.

    Thank you for the pcx conversion. Another 100$ have been transfered.

    Is there a bug with the counter ? Im not able to reach level 2. (?)

    p.s.
    When fully zoomed in, you can clearly see artefacts in your version. I really hope this problem is pcx related only ?
    I hope the following image clarifys it :

    Yep always thought you were a blue circle, I guess it is not your fault. ;)
     
  19. Yer, well I just gave the right answers. Doesn't mean they were genuine :biggrin1:
