The venerable Tommy and Bart from Sigmoid have updated Volley Brawl this week with new 7 new characters, user modifiable stages, changeable difficulty and a host of bug fixes.
We know that our comments section and the OMG! community is extremely active, you guys love having your say and voicing an opinion and there has been some completely awesome discussions take place in the comments down there.
The official OMG! Ubuntu! Android app is here! Now you can get the latest Ubuntu news, tips, interviews, how-tos and more from your favourite Ubuntu site wherever you are on your Android phone.
In September last year we launched Ubuntu Gamer at ubuntugamer.com - the intention was to create an entirely new site in a similar vein to OMG! Ubuntu!, but dedicated purely to gaming on Ubuntu. The site went well for a few months until earlier this year, when due to a variety of reasons, a lot of the authors couldn't find the time to write articles and the news was well, simply not there.
Come Ubuntu release day, there's so much stuff happening it's often hard to keep track. There are new articles popping up on OMG! Ubuntu! throughout the day, reactions on Twitter and Identica, chat in the #ubuntu-release-party IRC channel and constant refreshes of www.ubuntu.com to see if the release is, in fact, released.
At Project Bossanova we've announced a playable demo, a pledge campaign, the open sourcing of the client and also that the final game will eventually be cross platform.
I'm happy to announce that Volley Brawl is finally available for everyone to try! It's just hit the Software Center for Maverick and Natty, right on time to meet the March 31st release date. All you have to do is open up the Software Center and navigate to the "For Purchase" section.
On Thursday we're releasing Volley Brawl in the Ubuntu Software Center for $2.99 USD. We've got a few copies of the game to give away for free. It's really, really easy to enter - all you have to do is suggest a new character in the comments section.
It's about time we came clean with you all. Those videos, these mysterious characters appearing in the side bar every day for the last few days (currently, Pedobear is hanging out there, watching you), they've all been a bit random. So here's the truth. We're releasing a game. A cool game. A game only for Ubuntu, only for the Software Center. And it's cheap.
We've been working hard over the past month or so trying to improve the OMG! Ubuntu! experience for you guys, our faithful readers. It's all about making the experience the best we can for you, so if you can spare 20 minutes or so, we'd really appreciate your help in filling out this survey.
Ohso, the company behind OMG! Ubuntu! (owned by Joey and I), teamed up with indie game developers Sigmoid Development late last year. We're really excited to be releasing our first game in the Ubuntu Software Centre, Volley Brawl. More details will be revealed over the next 10 days, so stay tuned - but in the meantime, enjoy this video.
March 31st. Only on Ubuntu.
