Davey Jones: Tower Defence - Title Screen
Another year, another indie game! We have been hard at work on a new indie game, and are proud to announce: Davey Jones: Tower Defence. As the name suggests, this is a tower defence game!
Davey Jones: Tower Defence will initially be released worldwide on web portals such as Kongregate as a free to play game. We will then port the game to Android and iOS devices, including more content and additional DLC (Downloadable Content Content). This content will also be available to players that play online but won’t be available until the launch of the mobile versions.
We’re lucky to be working with Letsbrock on the project, he is a brilliant illustrator and designer and has done a great job directing an old school, 8bit style. We are very happy to have him on board and have created some screenshots of the game to show you:

LetsBrock has also enlisted the help of LittleBrock who has created some 8-bit shanty music to serenade you as you build up your defences. We have uploaded the main theme to SoundCloud for you to preview – have a listen and let us know what you think in the comments!
We are big fans of other games in this genre, such as Fieldrunners, the Bloons series, Kingdom Rush and of course, Onslaught!

We are happy to report that Craig Beswetherick is now an Adobe Gaming Influencer and will be helping Adobe make Flash Player a better experience and more suited to gaming. We are excited to see what this partnership will bring!
We created this presentation tool for Neutral and Panasonic to help them pitch their products to airlines. The project was a 1080p full screen application developed in Adobe AIR which was customised using an XML file and external images. The project features a clean and pleasant navigation system.
Rollover Fade Out
When creating Adobe AIR applications for Android mobile devices, it is now possible to bundle the AIR runtime into the .apk file so that users do not need to download and install the AIR runtime manually. This is a similar approach to what Adobe have taken with AIR for iOS, as applications do not need the user to install AIR on the device beforehand for applications to run. The downside to this approach is that applications suffer a much larger file size and will not receive any updates to AIR unless the application itself receives an update.
Export Release Build
Using Flash Builder 4.6, exporting applications using the captive runtime is easy. When exporting your application for distribution, click ‘Project > Export Release Build‘ .
Select Captive Runtime
Click next, and then make sure you have ‘Export Application with Captive Runtime’ selected and then hit finish. Flash Builder should now export an .apk file into your bin-release folder with the bundled AIR runtime.
