PAX Prime[prime.paxsite.com] was awesome! Big thanks to everyone that came out to see us! It was great meeting some of you for the first time and showing off Splice[playsplice.com] one-on-one with folks. If you missed out on PAX or weren’t able to stop by the booth, there’s a great write-up on the PAX10[prime.paxsite.com] over at Geek’sDreamGirl[geeksdreamgirl.com].
Splice : Tree of Life[cpri.me] has been a big success for us since its release for the iPad on the eve of PAX. Who knew touch would have made such a difference! Kotaku named it Gaming App of the Day in the first week of release, and TouchArcade gave the game a review score of 4.5 out of 5 stars, stating that “few apps offer the elegance that is Splice : Tree of Life[cpri.me].”
The gents over at Freeplay[www.freeplay.net.au] have selected Splice[playsplice.com] as a finalist in Australia’s Freeplay Awards[www.freeplay.net.au] as Best International Game of the year! The 2012 Freeplay Awards will be presented as part of the Freeplay Independent Games Festival on September 23 at the Order of Melbourne. As much as we would absolutely love a trip to the land down under, it just ain’t in the budget. Congrats to all the finalists!
If you missed out on the chance to snag one of the Steam game codes given away on Twitter this week—no worries—we’ve got another opportunity here for you to get your hands on free games from Cipher Prime!
The point of this challenge is to be creative with the game mechanics. We want to see what interesting imagery people can come up with given the structures available in Splice. We’ll be selecting up to 7 screenshots to be featured as downloadable desktop backgrounds. Entries should be taken at the highest resolution available and in full-screen mode .
Take screenshots using the Steam client and add them to your Steam profile’s library of screenshots. To submit your entry, post a link of the full-size screenshot image to the Splice Screenshot Challenge forum thread. If you can wow the pants off us, we’ll offer you up a free Steam key to one of Cipher Prime’s games of your choosing. Exceptional screenshots will be credited with your name and made available for download as desktop backgrounds through this group page (see the Game Art section below).
The challenge will continue until all 7 screenshots have been chosen. So fire up Steam, hop on into Splice, start feverishly mashing that F12 key, and show us what you got!
