Things are going well but slow to polish up PaddleSpace to perfection. Look out for the final release later this summer.

PaddleSpace is Mikeware's entry in the 2007 Independent Games Festival. Unfortunately, we were not selected. They wouldn't tell us why, but that won't slow us down!

Also, if you were going to be in the Montreal area on November 29th, 2006. You could have seen PaddleSpace at the month's IGDA meeting! It was a great success. You can read about the event here.

Background Story

Well, one night I was very bored, and I felt like I needed to play a good'ole game of 'Pong'. The only problem was I felt that most 'Pong' and Paddle games were pretty stale. So, all of a sudden I thought of an idea. What if you could shoot the ball to change it's speed, and then as soon as bullets and space became a central theme 'Asteriods' had to follow... 3 hours later a working prototype was born.

Of course, the past two years have been filled with ups and downs, mainly as this is our first Major production and do to other commitments, it has taken a long time to get this game off the ground. It has been developed over the course of approximately 210 hours and counting.

With a techno soundtrack and simple graphics style, it gives that retro feel to its modern gameplay. And with a twist of 'Galaga' mixed in the fun just never ends. You can purchase the music CD containing some PaddleSpace tracks at the Mikeware™ Shop.
