GDC 2014 - Pixeljam Games are Still Going Strong, Have Big Plans for the Future

While in the midst of all the hectic crazy that is GDC, it was nice to take some time to just hang out with Mark DeNardo (Sound Wizard) and Richard Grillotti (Dream Master) from Pixeljam Games over coffee, and have a chat about their past, present, and future projects. Glorkian Warrior: Trials of Glork was a major topic, naturally.

Their latest App Store release has been featured by Apple and is seeing a fair bit of sales, although the team is understandably looking for more support. "We definitely want to keep supporting and adding to Glorkian Warrior," said Grillotti, "We have a bunch of ideas for what we want to add, and have been paying a lot of attention to community feedback." This, of course, includes the consideration of possibly adding tilt controls (a very popular request) in the future. First on their ToDo list is achievements. According to DeNardo, "With mobile games, a lot of the narrative really relies on achievements." There's also a distinct possibility that Glorkian Warrior will be getting even more ridiculous weapons in the future, although nothing has been set in stone yet. "I'm pushing for flying fish," stated DeNardo.

Second, and perhaps even more exciting, is the announcement that Pixeljam is in the process of porting Potatoman Seeks the Troof to iOS. Grillotti notes that "we're still adjusting the controls," but the project is already pretty far along. No concrete date could be given for the release, but "soon" was certainly tossed around a lot. The price also hasn't been locked down yet, but it's definitely not going to be free. Given Pixeljam's history, I can only see that as a good thing.
