The winners of the Construct2 TouchJam have been announced both on Newgrounds and Scirra!
Unfortunately, I did not win, but I’d like to give my congratulation to the winners, as well as other entries that I enjoyed playing. I also like to say thanks to Tom Fulp for dedicating himself to write opinions for every single entry and organising the competition along with the rest of the Newgrounds Team and Scirra.
As you probably can tell from looking around, the development blog has now been transformed closer into a website. The layout has been changed to a more cleaner look, page descriptions have been made more specific to my goals and an indie developer and finally, if you check your address bar, I have an official domain name!
Now whenever you go to this site, you shall be going to gamepopper.co.uk!
I hope to hear what you think of the new design, and I’ll be posting new updates in the near future.
So it turns out there isn’t just one, but two Windows 8 Competitions that are running right now.
