Hidden Cats: Castle

It’s been a while since I’ve posted about Hidden Cats, so here’s something from the castle theme.
Stuff like buildings, doors, cannons, chests, etc, will be interactive and may have items hidden inside.

EBF5: iOS Progress

Hey guys, you may have noticed that I added a progress bar on this website for the EBF5 iOS port. The game already works perfectly on my iPhone 11!

I managed to play the game for 9 hours before the batteries died, which I think is pretty good. I didn’t notice any performance issues, and even the experimental “Turbo Mode” runs very smoothly. I’m glad I updated the game to 20:9 aspect ratio too – it looks really good with the extra space.

I need to move a few UI elements around slightly to accommodate the iPhone notch and home bar, but that’s been pretty simple so far. Next up is getting in-app purchases, ads and cloud saving working – I don’t think I’ll have to change my code much for this, it’s more a case of doing some complicated configuration in Apple’s tools. It was quite a pain on Google Play, but all the steps seem very different on iOS, so I have no idea how it’s going to go.

If there’s no major issues, it could be ready for beta testing in a couple of weeks!

Inflation and Prices

Hey guys, I’ve been thinking of increasing the prices of my games in line with inflation…

Since Epic Battle Fantasy 4 and Bullet Heaven 2 came out on Steam in 2014 and 2015, the US Dollar and British Pound have dropped in value by around 25% due to inflation. Epic Battle Fantasy 5 came out in 2018, and there the difference is around 20%.

Since the games are still getting customer support and occasional updates, I think it’s fair to raise the prices from $12 to $15, and from $20 to $25. Most of you already own the games, so this won’t really effect very many of you who are reading this. And if you don’t own the games yet, the games are on sale 4 times a year, if you’re looking for a bargain.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4 got a “version 2” update not too long ago, and I still regularly clean the Bullet Heaven 2 leaderboards, so both games are still getting some attention from me.

I’m also aiming to put a $15 price tag on Hidden Cats. It’s still very early in development, but I hope to have 10 to 20 hours of content in that game.

Epic Battle Fantasy Collection will stay at the current $8, unless I add more content to it, like the Bullet Heaven 3 Prototype. (Btw, please leave a review for EBFC on Steam if you haven’t already – it doesn’t have very many and they help a lot!)

I’ve also noticed that some regions aren’t happy with Steam’s new regional pricing, so I’ll make sure that Turkey and Argentina, for example, are not effected too drastically by this price update. Steam’s new pricing tool makes it easier to compare the new and old prices, so I’d like to avoid any unreasonably big changes.

Anyway, I’m aiming to update the prices in January, after the Christmas sale on Steam. So the Christmas sale will be the lowest price you’ll see for a while!

Let me know how you feel about all of this.
