Bullfrog in the News

(Originally Published on Make Mac Games)

Bullfrog has received some press over the past few weeks from a couple of French websites:

January 14, 2006 – Mac à l’école (Mac at School)

Original French Text:

Des jeux intéressants à utiliser en classe issus du concours idevgames 2005… Encore plus de choix cette année (36 logiciels), et avouons-le, nous n’avons pas tout testé !

Pour commencer Bullfrog plaira aux plus petits. Il s’agit de diriger une grenouille et de lui faire manger toutes les méchantes bêtes à l’écran…

Translated via Google:

Plays interesting to use in class resulting from the contest idevgames 2005… Even more choice this year (36 software), and let us acknowledge it, us very did not test!

To begin Bullfrog will like smallest. It is a question of directing a frog and of making him eat all the malicious animals with the screen…

December 14, 2005 – Jeux Mac (Mac Play)

Original French Text:

Alors que l’OriginalMacgames Contest est sur le point de clore ses portes afin de rendre son verdict, il est encore possible d’aller y télécharger les jeux inscrits.

Il y a des logiciels vraiment sympa, voici un petit descriptif de quelques uns :

BullFrog : un petit jeu pour enfant (moins de 10 ans) dans lequel il devra nourrir une grenouille.

Google Translation:

Whereas OriginalMacgames Contest is about to close its doors in order to return its verdict, there it is still possible to go to download the registered plays.

There is really sympathetic software, here a small description of some:

BullFrog: a small play for child (less than 10 years) in whom it will have to nourish a frog.

Announcement: Bullfrog Released

After a ton of work over the past month designing and programming my first Mac game, it is finally finished.

All the final artwork and animation is complete. All known bugs have been fixed. The final executable binary has been packaged and zipped.

Bullfrog has been officially entered into the 2005 OMG Cup and public voting opens December 1, 2005 at midnight.

If you’re interested in playing the final complete version of the game, you can find it on the official contest entry download page along with all the other games entered in the competition.

I would love for you to give the game a try and if you like it, please take the time to vote for it.

Announcing: Bullfrog

In case you missed it, I’ve been blogging about the development of my new game: Bullfrog over on Make Mac Games.

I’m hoping to enter the game into the Original Mac Games (OMG) contest over at iDevGames.com. The contest deadline is November 28 of 2005, so I have my work cut out for me.

Regardless of how the game does in the contest, my plan is to release it as an Outer Level product once it is completed.
