Today we pushed some updates to our beta SDK that we shortly want to share with you (Important: Please have a look at our update guide as we’ve changed the URL to the SDK to get the latest version!).
As you might have noticed on Twitter we added another demo game, called “Chicken Outbreak”, to the SDK. Chicken Outbreak is a side-scrolling game similar to the famous Doodle Jump. Your goal is to help the chicken to escape from the henhouse, flying (or well, falling, chickens can’t fly actually) from one roost to the next. In addition there are some grains on the way down, collect them and earn bonus points. We also published the game for Android and iOS, so head over to the stores to see it in action and make sure to have a look at the sources if you’re interested (we actually created this game within two days thanks to V-Play).
And there’s more: We greatly overhauled the documentation of all the components, examples and demos. For every single one of the powerful components, we added a comprehensive documentation and example code how to get most out of them. This doc is available online, as well as from within Qt Creator.
We also added the ability to add an app icon for our Build Server, which automatically scales for the different devices. And, for our Nokia developers, we added the V-Play libraries for Symbian and MeeGo to our SDK repository, so you’re now able to build your game locally for your devices too! See here how to update to the latest version of V-Play.
Finally, if you happen to be at GDC Europe in 2 weeks, let us know and we can meet and talk about games and your V-Play experience!
