james i saw you were doing different languages i could translate to dutch if you want ;)
Thanks, maybe when I'm ready for translations I'll let you know. Actually, interesting thing about picking languages to translate into, our games are quite popular in Scandinavia, enough so that it might justify the cost and effort of translating into those languages. However, those countries have such good English education systems, I think a lot of players prefer to play games in English. That's the impression I get, anyways.

Isn't the Netherlands similar? Like anyone under 50 years old speaks English quite well? Do you play games in English or Dutch given the choice?

Off Topic / Closing Forums Soon

We've had a lot of problems with spam on the forum... we get thousands of fake accounts and posts every day, despite using the most annoying registration options. Posts are never made public until we approve them, but it has become too much work to administer. In addition we get the all-too-frequent forum crashes which require my attention to figure out (yeah, that's why sometimes they have been offline for weeks or longer... I don't want to deal with server admin stuff... I suck at it and don't like doing it :( )

Sooo... we're going to be closing down the forums. We've disabled registration already. We're going to leave the forums online for a while. I might try to leave them accessible permanently as a reference, as there are certainly some useful posts in here.

I'm not sure exactly what we're replacing the forums with, if anything. Right now, I'm thinking about just using Facebook and Twitter for similar purpose... I don't know if that is sufficient...

In any case, thanks to everyone who contributed to the forums!

Well, I haven't updated it in quite a long time. The most recent version is 1.3.3. Go to the options menu and look at the bottom left corner. If you have an older version let me know, I'll send you the latest.

Still working on new game... just finishing up final stuff like UI, optimizations.

Tasty Planet: Back for Seconds / Re: What is tasty planet coded in?
« on: October 16, 2013, 12:32:50 PM »
C++

For simple 2d games nowadays, I wouldn't recommend it however. I've been experimenting with switching to a different language for future games. I made a small game in Monkey Coder (http://www.monkeycoder.co.nz/) and I enjoyed using that. It has built-in cross platform support, which is REALLY nice. The other one that I'm considering, but haven't played around with yet is Unity 3d. It's extremely popular right now - seems like every developer that I know is using it.

If you have a really really old version of the game then there are less fish. Email me your order information and I'll get you the latest version. (support@dingogames.com)

I think one of those things might actually be in a game we're working on...

Hmmm... There's is no "dating system" in the game beyond the storyline (wouldn't make too much sense with story going on)... I don't think Kitty is around after the story is over.  :)

The Three Musketeers: The Game / Re: Sequel?
« on: February 22, 2013, 02:46:05 PM »
Thanks Montesinos7! Although it would be fun to do a sequel, the game wasn't a big success for us, so it's hard to justify it. We occasionally talk about doing something with it but at present we're not working on anything.

We have revenue from all our past games - various distributors, direct sales, and iOS. Lots of little sources that add up. Obviously revenue is much higher when we release a new game.  :)

Tasty Planet: Back for Seconds / Re: Youtube Monetization
« on: February 01, 2013, 12:13:33 AM »
By "monetize" you mean turn on advertisements? That's fine with me. As long as you record your own videos (don't just re-upload my videos).

Also, I have no idea how the rights to the music would work in a situation like this. (I don't own it, only licensed it)
