Air Pirates news, LIFE/DEATH/ISLAND and Indiecade

Air Pirates is complete, aside from possibly small gameplay tweaks and some required help screens (something I'm not very used to adding to my games). So hopefully we will be able to release the game very soon.

I've been working a bit on another project called LIFE/DEATH/ISLAND on the side the last week or so, and so far it's turning out really well. It's procedural and generates islands. The islands have different environments, and wildlife currently including bears, dogs, spiders, birds, maggots, zombies and mutants. The cities also have accessible sewer systems, cars that you can steal, and buildings you can enter. You can also find people to gang up with, to make survival a bit easier. Hopefully I'll be able to add a lot more before release.

Also, Tuning has been selected as a finalist at this years IndieCade. It's got 21 levels at the moment, and I'm not sure how much more it needs before release, but it's not quite ready yet.
