It was my aim to bring back an Arcade milestone and reanimate Swing Plus. It was released in 1999 from Software 2000. It had an unique gameplay, which was easy to manage, but hard to beat. Unfortunately the company get busted and the game to fall into oblivion. The old copies doesn’t run on new operating systems. In 2008 I started from scratch to code a remake of the original Swing Plus -Total Mindcontrol game. At the end of 2008 the first playable alpha version was out. In the middle of 2010 the game had an online highscore list, an easy multiplayer mode, but was still far away from being complete. The last edit was a quick and dirty Android port. That was two years ago.
Why this Break?
I found out, that this project was to big for a single person. Programming, webdesign, database management, graphic designs an others was too much to get the things done in spare time. I can use Photoshop, but I’m not a designer. I’m not able to create attractive game graphics. While seeking for baker for sounds and graphic design I become desperate. It didn’t make sense to code a game without getting sounds or graphics. So I stopped the project.
We keep moving now!
But now the story is going on. I got the first support offer. MiMo will help me with the sounds and Robi does the graphic design with 3ds Max. We will go on with the redesign and start to implement all of the missing features. Stay tuned for further the next updates.
