HI Nat, i just yesterday bought your kit, and today i have some grasp on what and how i should develop the game :). My all time favorites is games like old UFO :) would be nice to implement something like this. Some ideas i would like to see in my game:
Action points based movement (more than one player? a team maybe?)
Its likely not a 24h game :D but your kit gave me confidence for doing a bigger project :)

I bought your kit and it’s fantastic. I start with read book and see example. My dream is develop a tycoon game (very tycoon game as Sim Farm) and an old style RPG (example Odissey The legend of Nemesis on old Mac).
I hope a costan upgrade to kit with new element and template.
Sorry for my bad english.

Looking to create a Defender type game, for starters. Haven’t purchased yet, but really close. Any advice would be appreciated.

Hi Nat, Todd from Sydney Australia here… I just bought your kit a few days ago and I’m busily assembling the tool kit and reading the eBooks now. There never seems to be enough hours in the day though!! As a little bit of background, here in Australia we have a hung parliament and the crippled government must cort the support of key independant ministers and the Greens to have any chance of getting any legislation passed.
It may sound like a silly idea, but I’m looking at doing an RPG style game based on the volatile political environment here in Australia!! Our hero, “Julia Gillard” (Our Prime Minister) must befriend and pander to the “Greenies” and “Independants” in order to get laws passed through the house, while avoiding the “The Abbott’s” (Leader of the opposition) the sworn enemies of the Labor party. Threats also come from public protests and even rogue members of her own party!! This is timed and you must pass a certain number of bills before “Bob Brown” (The Green’s Leader) calls an election. I think this may have a niche market here in Australia and from what I can tell, your kit, and in particular, the Cocos2D game engine is a very good starting point.
I have no practical experience in game development, but I do have a basic concept of programming and HTML coding. I look forward to some helpful hints form all you boffins out there, and hope to have a game published in the next 6 months!! Best Regards, Todd.

Wow. Interesting game topic! Keep us posted on your progress and have fun. :)

great guide, I’m having a lot of fun adding she eps and pigs to quexlor! :D
I’m thinking about re-make all the graphics in a more cartoonish style (I’m more a graphic geek than a programmer) and to develop few levels to play with my friends on our iPad.
I’d like to develop a run and jump platform like canabalt, inspired to the Chuck TV series.
Thank for all the support ;)

Hi Nat! Hi Guys!
Nat, nice kit and writing – I really like the way you wrote your book/guide, hence it is easy to follow. And mainly I appreciate your work and I believed that if it wasn’t for you I didn’t start again to do game development.
By day I’m a rails developer and by night I work on my dragons game. I used to work as a game developer for a few months but since it was Unity3D I didn’t like it – mainly because I didn’t felt that I control very well the unity environment. Anyway, is way more fun to work on your own game!!!
I have some game-dev experience (with Unity3D a bit of SIO2 and cocos2d), but I build this experience on my own without having any guidance (It was so fun) and right now I’m using your kit mainly as an “game architecture example”.
Games I plan to develop:
I will come with more details! For the games I plan to use the iphone-gamekit or some parts of it. But like I said, I will come with more details as I have more code written and compileable.

Cool game ideas guys! Cant wait to see what you make. Keep us posted here.
Hey kanghuro, are you looking for work? Email me your portfolio if you are!

I’ve been a developer for over 25 years. I’ve got about 6 weeks to put together a game and decide whether or not it’s a viable way of making a living, or continue “working for the man”.
My principal game idea is very loosely built around “Zombieland” or “Shaun of the Dead”. The two most important elements will be a sense of humor throughout and having to solve problems. I think a key element a lot of games lack is a motive. IE: Mindless hacking and slashing is entertaining for 5 or so minutes, after that it becomes a bit rinse and repeat with harder monsters. I’d like to incorporate some of the old times adventure elements. EG: If you run out of the house without picking up the keys, you end up a Zombie brunch in the front yard because you locked yourself out :) It woyuld be nice to have animated sequences where the character realises what they’ve just done to reinforce the humor aspect.
If I manage to come up with something and launch a website I’ll be sure to write an update.

“The bad old days”. :) You can relate!
Hey I’m excited for your game. Keep us posted on the forum and remember to leave a healthy chunk of time for marketting or hire somebody.

I have brought the kit after reading from the forums and etc …..

Just completed my first app (utility app) and waiting for it to be approved by Apple. For my next app, I want to learn how to build a game for iOS.
Came across your blog “5 Cocos2D iPhone Game Source Code Kits to Revolutionize Your Game Development” by searching google for a good review on Ray Wenderlich’s Space Game Starter Kit. That was a really informative review of some good kits out there, then decided to dig deeper into what your kits were all about and saw that it was right up my alley in what I want in game development.
Hoping to build a strategy game similar to the Dungeons & Dragons Miniatures Game, as both a single player and multiplayer.

A game which must be filled with lots of funny character full funny game.

Any human-dragon game where slaying dragons is not what makes you a hero. Something like the nostalgic Drakan: Order Of The Flame is perfect. If Naomi Novik gives me thumbs up, i would make a game of Temeraire.

I intend to make games for my own kids to play (eg. simple rpg world adventures with no killing but maybe a little magic and educational content like simple puzzles to solve). They are all under 4 at the moment so plenty of time to learn and pass the skills on to them eventually.

Thanks again for writing this great kit! At the moment there are two games I would really like to make:
1. A basic shooting game. First prototype: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aAjzoZ2euZA. There would be different styles of monsters, and different types of cannonballs could be used to kill them.
2. A Lode Runner style game. It will differ from Lode Runner in that the player can jump and there are different ways to trap the AI. I’ve done a couple of prototypes for it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ja_s1w8tXCo. And a remake using the Paralaxer Kit with Box2D: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZOHaxjxgCN8.
One of the hardest things is finding time to work on these games because I keep getting distracted with my day job as an iOS Dev. I’m considering leaving my job sometime this year so I can work on these games full time. Just not sure yet how I’ll be able to financially support myself when I do this.
