Inputtie – Beta Release!

Woooo Hooo! Finally after almost a years worth of toiling we have finally released the beta version of Inputtie.

Now I have only performed a limited amount of testing so im sure there are going to be bugs-a-plenty. If you find something I would love to hear about it. We dont currently have a dedicated email address you can use for this so just use the contact box on the side of the inputtie page to get in touch.

Anyways, here are the release notes for this version:

Inputtie Version 0.1.3 (22/03/10)
+ Beta Release!
+ Fixed an issue that was causing the mouse pointer to not quite reach the edge of the screen
+ Fixed it so that you can now choose not to show the “new device” help tip.
+ New Icons, yey!

Grab the download over on the download page now!

Oh BTW we decided to go with the “e” in a bordered square for our app icon:

Announcing Inputtie

For the last year or so my major personal-project has been under wraps but after a few intense weeks its finally time to talk about it!

First before I explain exactly what Inputtie is I will talk about why I started this project and the problem I was trying to solve.

Ludum Dare Hour 408 (15 Days later) – Results!

Well the judging is now finally over for the Ludum Dare competition I entered 17 days ago.

So overall I placed #21 which is just outside the top 20. Not bad for a first time entry but I thought I would of done better considering some of the game ranked higher than me but oh well.

I actually game second in one category.. Community? Not entirely sure how I managed that but oh well :P

I think I may have received the most number of votes out of any of the games, it certaintly seems like a lot take a look:
