Hijax Games launch

Jul 05, 2013 - Elliott Draper

After a busy few weeks, we’ve gotten the site for Hijax Games up and running. You can check it out now, and see some of what we have planned. The first tutorial, on using RubyMotion and Joybox to build a basic iOS game, will be going up very shortly, with much more to follow. We’ll soon be doing some getting started tutorials for Unity3D, which will be very interesting.

We’ve also setup a simple a little mini app called Screenshot Saturday for displaying in-progress game development screenshots under the rather popular #screenshotsaturday hashtag on Twitter. Now, as indie game devs around the world use that hashtag in their tweets (it happens mainly on a Saturday of course, but people seem to re-use it all week!), then their screengrabs will display, and during the course of the day it gives you a nice view of what other people are working on. It should be especially interesting this weekend, as the next Molyjam gets underway, with hundreds of people all working on games inspired by British games legend Peter Molyneux, and his Twitter parody account, Peter Molydeux. Check it out and let us know what you think!

So if game development is something that interests you, either to play our creations, or to learn with us, then sign up to the newsletter below to stay up to date with the latest content. And if you have an idea for a game and need some help bringing it to life, get in touch!

Check out our macOS apps, AppTrack and WordTarget.

If you're looking for bespoke development for your own apps, using Ruby on Rails, RubyMotion, React Native or Unity, you can hire @ejdraper - visit ejdraper.com to learn more.
