I was interviewed recently regarding Cool-B in Search of Floyd, and it was published today in a few newspapers in the area. Here is an excerpt from the article:

“Watch out, Angry Birds. Cool-B the Cat has arrived. As pencil-sketched Cool-B the cat leaps over butterflies in search of Floyd, his close friend who has died, a combination of Scottish fiddle music and retro video game sounds play in the background.

Fuquay-Varina resident David Klingler, 20, developed every piece of the newly-released video game; from each piece of the code, to each handwritten drawing and graphic, to each musical note, many of them played by Klingler himself, an award-winning Scottish fiddler.

To honor real-life cats Cool-B and Floyd, Klingler also plans to donate a portion of the proceeds to animal charities….”

The next update coming for Cool-B in Search of Floyd is being worked on right now. This will be version 1.3.

I wanted to post a few of the things that will be in version 1.3:

  • Many More Types of Sets (more gameplay variety)
  • Built-in Support for more forms of Control
  • Saving and Continuing
  • Further Elaboration of Game Mechanics
  • Advanced Level-Gameplay Structuring
  • More References/Homage to Classic Gaming
  • Refined Scoring System
  • New Items
  • More Options for Customization
  • Refined Difficulty Settings
  • Warp Zones
  • New Backgrounds
  • A Lot of Redone Artwork
  • Achievements
  • Standardized Art Styling
  • New Movement Techniques and Refinements
  • New Sound Effects
  • Weekend Tournaments will Begin
  • More Extra Game Modes
  • Game Engine Refinements

…and there will be much, much more than that. As always, anyone who owns a copy of the game will get the version updates for free, for example if you buy the game now (version 1.2 right now), you will be able to upgrade to version 1.3 for free immediately when version 1.3 is completed. Updating your copy is very easy and streamlined so that anyone can handle doing the updates with ease.

In March, I was lucky to be able to attend a screening for Indie Game: The Movie in Raleigh, NC.

It immediately became my favorite movie.That movie is incredible. I highly recommend it to ANYONE. Of all documentaries I’ve seen, this is what I would consider to be the most faithful to the subject. So many times during the film I got tears in my eyes, and would think to myself, “That’s exactly what it feels like.”

Indie Game: The Movie is coming to its digital release this Tuesday, June 12th. Check it out at IndieGameTheMovie.com!
