App Store: Sheeple HD $2.99

This is not a review, but rather an announcement for my new game Sheeple HD for the iPad. I myself am an indie developer and that is where the thought for this site was birthed. I recently, like the droves of other developers, decided that it would be an opportunity not worth missing to have an iPad application available at the grand opening of the iPad App Store.

I didn’t want to just do a direct port of my game Sheeple and then charge the user 2-5x more, just for larger resolution graphics. I actually find it amusing how many $0.99 game developers are just creating larger resolution graphics and changing $4-$5, for no additional gameplay variation. That being said, I do think that the $0.99 price point is much too low to keep indie developers motivated long term to create quality games as the number of applications continues to surge in the App Store.

Sheeple HD for the iPad shares a lot similarities with Sheeple for the iPhone, but contains all new levels, much larger levels, and a completely new scoring system. The levels are actually much more challenging and are really fun to play with more elements on the game board. Please give Sheeple HD a try if you have an iPad and let me know what you think!
