Shower Thoughts Development has decided that we will be continuing work on our new puzzle platformer "obj_char" (to be released first for Windows) simultaneously with our mobile physics puzzle game "Magnemaze" to be featured on Android. Furthermore, updates will be regularly provided on the Twitter handle @Shower_Dev. Lastly, Shower Thoughts has set April 27th as the tentative date for the first public release of an early beta demo for "obj_char", which will immediately follow the public play test the night before.

Well, obj_char won the game jam. It was a lot of fun to make this demo and we're very excited to be continuing work on the project. But for now, we're gonna fix one minor bug and then take the night off. We'll be posting the demo soon so check back for more details!

Most of the basic Mechanics of the game seem to be up and running. A minor bug is currently being dealt with. The next steps are to start developing some playable and coherent levels as well as NAME THE GAME! Who would have guessed that of everything to cause problems picking a name would be one of them?

So after struggling to create a world for a game based on the theme "fear", we have finally created our basis. When a beta hero character becomes self aware and realizes the world around him is being updated to the next version, he's afraid he's going to be next to be replaced. To prevent this, the player must maneuver their way through the game and destroy the world of the game so that the developers have to worry about fixing their original game before they can consider replacing their beta hero.

If all is going well, the game may even be downloadable for live play tests throughout the week! Ready, set, code!

Shower Thoughts Development has been working diligently on the new Android version of Magnemaze. Currently, it is the primary project of Shower Thoughts and all other projects have been suspended indefinitely. While you will have to wait to play it in order to see the amazing new reconstruction, we promise that, for those who played the original build, you will be blown away by tons of new graphics, mechanics, and features.
