DEVELOPING THE GAME! Hello, I’m Jody McAdams! This game was created in a few hours a week over the course of more than a year. The engine was created by me from scratch using C/C++/Objective-C (XCode on Mac). The menu physics were created using Box2D. I drew the characters in InkScape (Mac/PC) and InkPad (iPad) and animated them in Synfig Studio (Mac/PC). I created the music using the Korg DS-10 (Nintendo DS) and Korg iMS-20 (iPad). I modeled the IceCubes using Blender (Mac/PC). I drew my textures in Paint Shop Pro (PC) and Gimp (Mac/PC). I programmed all the special effects and all of the gameplay. I put my soul into this game! I also had some help. The UI, replay and network code was programmed by my good associate. The “Igloos In The Sunset” background image was painted by Lloyd Murphy.
FINAL MESSAGE! I hope you all enjoy playing this game as much as I did making it! If you have any problems, please email email@example.com. I want to help! If anyone has suggestions, please email me! I can’t wait to hear your feedback!
