A Short Note

We are a small indie game company. l (Kevin Ryan) founded Top Meadow roughly a decade ago to do personal game projects. I first started making games back in 1977 in high school and hopefully will be able to continue making them for another 50 years or so.

I've been making published games for over 3 decades now for Electronic Arts, Activision, Sierra, and other companies. I designed and programmed The Incredible Machine and was one of the original owners of Dynamix (was with the company until almost the very end).

To create Puzzle Poker I've had the help of numerous game dev friends that I've worked with over the years.

Here is just a few of the games that I've made:
  • Sword of Kadash (C64/Dynamix/Penquin Software)
  • ArctIc Fox (Amiga/Dynamix/EA)
  • Skyfox II (C64/Dynamix/EA)
  • Rise of the Dragon (PC/Dynamix/Sierra)
  • Heart of China (PC/Dynamix/Sierra)
  • Willy Beamish (PC/Dynamix/Sierra)
  • The Incredible Machine (PC/Dynamix/Sierra)
  • Contraption Maker (PC/Mac/Spotkin/Top Meadow) <--- on Steam now

I've also got a blog where I write about game dev and various life stuff:

Lol! Yep... It is the jelly beans fault!

I'm trying to get head-to-head play working. Integrating Steam Lobbies. Don't want to promise it, but really want to get it in.

No recent update that I can see, but he's snowed in with too many jelly beans and the sugar rush is probably why he wants to be a bee, instead. And his internet's messed up. So it's understandable.

Excellent. Good to know.

We are working on integrating into Steam with high scores, achievements, and trading cards. Right now we are aiming for the start of February.

@Hippyshake Thanks for letting us know. I'm working on updating the online top scores and clubhouses right now. At one point it was doing a check at start up to see in there was a new update available. Not sure if I disabled that yet or not. On my list of things to do.
