Happy New Year from Fenix Fire

By | Announcements, Behind the Scenes, Games, Partners | No Comments

I hope everyone enjoyed their holidays and were able to spend some quality time with family and friends. I know it’s hard getting back into the swing of things after having so much free time and fun, but what can you do? And here in Chicago this polar vortex is not helping. With the high being -8 degrees, a wind chill of -45 degrees and schools getting canceled allowed us an extended two day vacation…yay. Ok, enough about that. It’s going to be an awesome year…I can FEEL it! Just a friendly reminder, if haven’t already, like us on Facebook :) Fenix Fire Facebook Page

How is it going to be an awesome year you ask? Well, let me tell you. Fenix Fire is growing and has some great projects in the works. First and foremost we have Source. We’ve received some positive feedback from the Source Facebook page and Twitter which is very encouraging. Check out the Source Facebook page and give us a like!  PS4 and Xbox One are interested in this game to be played on their consoles. WOW! That is an indie game developer’s dream! So, that alone helps us get some momentum for an awesome year. But that’s not all!

We have multiple projects with Oculus. How cool is that! Oculus is a virtual reality simulator and the future of video games. The work is really cutting edge and can be challenging at times, but all the hours and hard work is always worth it in the end. To create something that is visual stimulating and just plain cool is what it’s all about. As a developer, if you don’t want to play it then it’s not worth making. There is so much that goes into the development of a video game, I had no idea until I started listening to The Game Designer Dojo podcast. I find it overwhelming. However, I now have a new appreciation for indie game developers.

Now, let us not forget about The Game Designer Dojo Podcast. That has been an outstanding experience. We are so looking forward to continuing with it and sharing knowledge with other game developers while working through challenges we might be going through with our own games. We could use more feedback about what topics we should cover or go more in depth with. Since there is so much and so many directions you can go, Brian and Ike could use fan guidance. If there is something that you’re curios about or want to know more about, reach out to them on the Facebook page or leave feedback at the itunes store.

Time to recap. With so many great projects in the works, there’s no doubt in my mind this is going to be a fantastic year. We also plan on updating Roboto, another exciting plan for 2014. I have a feeling this year is going to fly by because it’s going to be that awesome. Keep in mind Fenix Fire has a newborn baby too. So all this work is happening on an infant sleep schedule. Those of you that have kids, you understand and can appreciate the hard work that lies ahead. But we’re ready to take the bulls by the horns, so to speak. We’re just so ready for 2014!!!
