Hi there !
Welcome to an all new cavalcade of blogs focused on the development of our first game. From now on we will update you with weekly blogs concerning the progress we are making with the game. We hope you will find our blogs interesting, and you are more than welcome to post comments or even e-mail us with questions you have regarding the blog or just the game in general. We are also available on Twitter (@Pixeleap) from which we will keep you posted about the new blogs and whatever else we find interesting to you. But now for the first blog....
Tuesday 5th April, we attended a public talk on iPhone games by Simon Møller, the creative director from Kiloo.
After the presentation, we had the opportunity to make a 5 minute presentation of our own game to the attending crowd, which was great. After answering questions about the game, some of the attendees played the current (very early beta) version of our game and presented us with some very valuable feedback.
Everyone (especially us:) ) was very excited about the event and we left with a great sense of self esteem, and with a much clearer idea of what needed to change in the game to give it a broader appeal.
Mainly two things are now in focus, the name of the game and the appearance of the main character.
We went straight to work yesterday and spent the entire day brainstorming both names and jamming on how the main character should look.

We are not quite ready to disclose the new name yet, but we are confident that it is a good solid name that will represent the game well :)
All the while we were brainstorming names, Jesper was doing different sketches of new character concepts. We narrowed it down to one concept we liked more than the others and worked on from there.
We are really excited about the new concept and would really like to hear from our readers what you think about it.
we are open to any feedback you have, maybe you like it, maybe you love it ! Maybe you think there is room for improvement? Let us now in the comment section below
And finally, here is the picture of how the new main character could end up looking in the final game:
Tell us what you think :)

Thank you for showing an interest in our project, please stop by our website and give us your opinion on the character, thank you :)
