Episode 4 has been submitted!!!



We finally submitted the newest update with the local wi-fi multiplayer. There was some problems with the submission, since we had to hotfix the build about 6 times before we finally got it the way it was supposed to be. Let me just say that things are much more complex when multiplayer is involved.

Right now we have our fingers crossed that the update would make it through Apple before Christmas. It seems unlikely at the moment. We have received reports their approval during December will be uber slow due to many developers submitting updates & apps. There's nothing we can do about it, except to hope for the best.

Some brand new co-op screens featuring Enviro-Bear and Evan Hsu (Second screen has Xmas Gore & Santa duo):





Online multiplayer & bluetooth will follow in a later update!


Also as the Minigore Monster Contest is still alive and kicking, I must remind everybody that you still have the time to submit your entry! More info about the contest can be found from the blog post made WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2010.


We also decided to extend the rules a bit (don't worry nothing dramatic) so that all the entries and artwork posted on the forums will automatically be considered for the contest. This means you don't necessarily have to post your work to the email (sheepcontests@gmail.com) in order to participate.

Some people who sent their entries have been wondering if we received their entry. Unfortunately we don't have time to reply to everybody. If you are unsure if we got it or not, check your email account's "sent" folder to see if it is there. If you can't find it, or don't know how to check, you can resubmit your entry to make sure.

  3. When are we going to start seeing updates for Minigore HD? You charge a premium price for the iPad but it receives little to no updates while Minigore for iPhone is free quite a bit and it receives all the updates.

  4. Cool. Do you think you will have the zombie update by christmas?

    ReplyDelete
  5. Will beta testing for the remaining content begin soon, or is there still a considerable amount of work to be done?

  6. Are the elder gores DLC? I have too many kills and I want to spend them.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Hey Timmo, can you include a list of the features in this updates. It appears you have re-stylized the virtual joysticks, and Elder Gore is included in this update, right? As DLC or purchasable characters?

    ReplyDelete
  8. It's Timo, not "Timmo" :P

    -full retina Display support
    -local co-op (over Wi-Fi)
    -new joysticks
    -many, many bug fixes
    -new DLC pack with Grandpa and Grandma

  9. ...and it snows on the snow map. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  10. ...and clouds on the forest map ;)

    I'm excited that its finally submitted! Nice work.

    @Timo, that multiplayer poster is awesome, any chance of releasing desktop wallpaper sized versions? It would look sick on my laptop!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Do the elder gores have voice acting?

    ReplyDelete
  12. Do they have any abilities?

    ReplyDelete
  13. MS, you should make some artwork iPhone/iPad sized, and release them as wallpapers. This would be free promotion for you. AND will make us Minigore fans really really happy. Really! (no, seriously, REALLY!)

    ReplyDelete
  14. @Anonymous: Grandpa has shotgun, Grandma is a common character.

    ReplyDelete
  15. DLC? Come on, we need to spend this surmounted cash somehow. That’s just saddening.

    ReplyDelete
  16. If you guys produce merchandise I would buy it. Like a minigore ipod case or minigore mugs.

    ReplyDelete
  17. AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hey will your next website update be on the zombies and knight because i am so psyched for this now ,more then ever!!!!!!!!!!!!

    -Leandro

    p.s. can you guys tell me what you think about my monster it's under profile name Leo94x

    ReplyDelete
  18. So the elder gores r goin to be bought with real money.
    That sucks!!!! I really want to have a
    Reason to play the game 24 7!!!!
    Please make them bought with kills PLEASE!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Which character pack will the Elder Gores be in?

    ReplyDelete
  20. On the screen shots it shows only one set of lives.
    Does this mean you both share 3 lives each????
    If it does I would of rathered the system were u both have 3 lives each and if one of u die the other player has 5 or 10 seconds to revive them to 1 or 2 lives.
    What do u think???
    Also please work on different maps after ep 4 like
    -desert level with mummies
    -snow level with snowmen or white furries
    Thanks for listening please reply back
    Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  21. I creamed when I saw the title.. Also I agree with wacko jacko desert level with mummies would be sick

    Thanks dudes at MS :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Yes Jacko you have some very nice ideas. Maybe in the desert you could also have some cacti that pop out of the ground and hobble towards you. I do like those ideas though. In the snow forest level they become like little yetis?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Or have a fogy level with... Creatures ( anykind ) that pop at u.... And Jacko that is one awesome idea!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Thanks Dylan, spike and misha!
    This is probably a long shot but how about a level where u r in a huanted mansion, u can go down stairs to the basement and upstairs to the bedroom where u can than go on the deck.
    Ghost furies would be awesome who u can only slightly see till They come close to u.
    What do u think???
    Ps read spike and mishas ideas above they have some great level ideas aswell.
    Thanks

  25. Ojalá y que hicieran un blog de minigore en español!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Does this update include object collision?

    ReplyDelete
  27. The arrow through heart graphic in the background of the dead elder gores would make a pretty sick tee.

    ReplyDelete
  28. all i want in ep 4 is the knight, is it in it ??

    please reply

    jack

    ReplyDelete
  29. @jack
    The knight is in eP4
    Mountain sheep r submitting ep4 in parts

    ReplyDelete
  30. @ Wacko Jacko
    the 3 lives are for one of the characters. remember, you have one screen each, so you don´t have to share the lives or anything.
    I guess you have to see how many lives your friend has by looking at his character, like it was before the hearth indicator was invented xD

    ReplyDelete
  31. Surely though, if work is ONLY on the forum and not e-mailed, how will you know contact details or address if they win?

    ReplyDelete
  32. @fozzywozzybear

    maybe they comment on your thread , asking you your adress and contact info

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oh yeah. (:
    Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  34. I CAN'T WAIT TILL THE NEXT WEBSITE UPDATE!!!! :D

    -Leandro

    ReplyDelete
  35. Thanks Himalayaboy
    Mountainsheep can u add the revival system when u die in multiplayer. U have 5 seconds to revive the player to 1 life.
    What do u think???
    Fozzywozzybear and anon won't People be able to see your contact info....u no like hackars??I don't won't people knowing my phone no. And address???

    ReplyDelete
  36. @Wacko Jacko
    That's a great concept! I'd think longer, maybe like you have 10 seconds to revive, and it takes like 3 seconds to revive them? Also about your ghost idea... That's neat too, but to be honest, a 2 story map will never happen lets face it. Maybe just a mansion scenario and the ghosts come at you?

    @MS/Timo
    Don't you guys think it would be a good idea to get a minigun? When you first get it it would have the firing rate of the maxed out machine gun, and then at level ten it almost becomes a laser of bullets launching off randomly? I've always loved that idea and I deeply hope one day you will make it an addition to the game.

    @all with the following idea.
    Flamethrowers don't seem like a good idea! Has it ever occured to you that over half the furries are already on fire??? I'd much rather have an,, acidic spray gun. Just like the flamethrower only has a green gasey spray rather then fire. Don't you think that sounds much more reasonable?

    @MS/Timo
    How will the knight/future melee units work against fur bombs? If it kills them imediately you automatically lose a life? Will they be immune to the explosion? Will the sheer force of the blow knock back the bomb enough fo the knight to be safe? I'm not really sure how that would work out....

    @MS/Timo
    My final hope would be to make a chef character who dual wields a pan and a butcher knife and chops up (furries/zombies) Twice as fast with a pan-knife combo! I think that would be cool. Anyways, probably none of these will ever be read by you MS, but if by some chance they are, please consider them well.

  37. Once again thanks spike! I know it would never happen but how awsum would a mansion be! I actually got the ghost furry idea off someone else...sorry.
    The minigun would be awsum! I've heard lots of other suggest that and please ms put it in ep4!
    Flamethrower would be very fun though, bt wouldnt it work alot like the minigun???
    I really want to know how the knight works as well. Cuase woulnt u sorta be invincible like when your in beast mode???(ms please make the knight your next blog post)
    I saw mountainsheeps chef on the forums which looks awsum! It would awsum to have the chef in ep5 or 6.
    Oh and one more thing I had an idea for a new gun(they really need more), a angle grinder gun. It shoots 3 angle grinders in different dre tins at the speed of a shotgun, but it can slice through an endless number of enemy's.
    What do u think???
    Thanks for listening.

    ReplyDelete
  38. What about like a rubber bullet gun like it has a slow rate of fire but the bullets bouce off furies and walls and can kill up to 10 with each bullet what do you guys think?

    ReplyDelete
  39. will this update have the knight icon

    thanks

    jack

  40. Hey does anyone know when the website updates?

    ReplyDelete
  41. that's a good question...when does it update and what happened to the monday updates? :O

    ReplyDelete
  42. We want to capture multiplayer video for the next blog post, so the next blog post might be on Wednesday.

    In other news: Game Center multiplayer is working with some minor bugs. Episode 4 for iPad is missing new save game code, we hope to submit that soon. (within a week or so)

    ReplyDelete
  43. Thanks Timo, I know a lot of us were curious about the fate of Game Center multiplayer!

    Anonymous above Timo: This is going to sound harsh, and I'm sorry about that, but I can't convey emotion over text, but you should be thankful that the blog was getting a new post every Monday for a while. Before Jussi was hired, the posts were done by Timo or Kimmo, and were done about twice a month.

    Jack: This update will not have the knight icon.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Will this update have anymore enclycopedia pages? Also it would be cool in the later updates as kinda an Easter egg if your playing multiplayer one person as the grandpa and one as the grandma then when they both die near eachother the blood would become that heart arrow just like in the picture

    ReplyDelete
  45. Whoops that above comment was me sry for the double post

    ReplyDelete
  46. Argh...awww bummer so i guess we won't being our undead foes and a kick-ass knight till much later..oh well i can live with it :D can you also put some new footage for zombies i'm really anxious

    ReplyDelete
  47. Why don't you put some kind of special power for some characters and a tank as item or some kind of charecter?
