Barbagann Games were asked several questions about gaming, mobile gaming, and the challenges faced during game development and this article was featured on the TV Guide which is handed out by The Times. The game Scarfish is still being developed and should be released some time next Summer. In the meantime, follow http://www.barbaganngames.com and https://www.facebook.com/barbaganngames for the latest news.

The game “Scarfish” which my team, Barbagann Games were working on the last six months placed 3rd at the GameDev Challenge 2011 organised by St. Martins Insitute of IT.  The next real proving point is when the app is released on Android and iOS markets. We will also know the results for GameZing 2011 in January 2012. 

In the meantime, enjoy our introductory storyboard: 

Me and my team, Barbagann Games will be competing again in the St. Martins Institute of IT Game Development Challenge 2 against 7 other teams. We are currently brain storming our ideas and coming up with good idea for a game at the moment. For the 2nd year I will be teams Game Designer.

This time we will be developing for the iOS devices, and most probably the iPhone. So if you have an iOS device and would like to be part of the Beta Testing team, just leave a comment here or go on the link below and I will contact you as soon as we start the Beta Testing phase.

Once I have more information, a trailer, or some screen shots I will be posting them here 🙂

The indie game we developed last summer, Battles on the Horizon placed 2nd last night during the awards ceremony of Game Zing, a competition organised with the intent to encourage game development in Malta. We were competing with all the other Schools around Malta including the University of Malta, and there were around 9 teams in total.  The competition was split in two, the XNA Competition, and the Kodu Competition.

Both the winning team, and the runners up for the XNA Competition were from St. Martins Institute of IT.  I would like to congratulate all my team members who helped us earn these rewards, and the other competitors for making it a good competition. Hopefully you will see more games from us very soon 🙂

Battles on the Horizon

One of the reasons I am not blogging so often recently is because I am part of a team named Barbagann Game Studios and we are developing a game called Battles on the Horizon.

The game genre is action and role playing.  The story takes place in Malta, in the 18th Century when Malta was ruled by the Knights of St. John.  The character whom you will be playing with is a young Corsair and you have been entrusted with one of the orders Ships. vYour job is to trade in the Mediterranean seas and to defend yourself against pirate attacks.

We are going to use this game to enter a local Digital Games Production competition called GameZing.

One of the reasons that we created this game for, is to help young students who don’t like reading about our history, by giving them a game to play which is obviously more fun and it is based on some of Malta’s rich history which they can re-live!

The game should be finished by the end of November, and the Beta should be out by the end of October.
