How to get started in video games…

Filed Under (Uncategorized) by Ruben on 29-04-2012

Many of you have sent us emails asking how to get started in making your own video game or joining our team. Although there are many different routes you can take, my personal recommendation would be to download the XNA tools from create.msdn.com and along with that you should purchase XNA 4.0 Game Development by Example: Beginners Guide – Visual Basic Edition. This book will take you step by step in creating simple games while explaining each new step. The book also relates the different parts of programming to easier to understand scenarios. I use this book almost daily as a reference now that I have read it through several times. When I need to explain something to someone I use the book as it explains it a lot better than I ever could. So along with the XNA tools and this book, you will want to also have a lot of patience. Hopefully with the Beginners Guide, within a year some of you will have a game out on the XBox Marketplace. Best of luck!

Price Reduction !!!!

Filed Under (End of Days) by Ruben on 10-04-2012

We are happy to announce that after a 90 day price freeze we are now able to take advantage of Microsoft new pricing tier. The game End of Days is now available for 80 Microsoft points!
The games sales were doing exceptionally well but we decided to reduce the price to entice more people so we may build an even larger community to try and fill more lobby rooms. We also want to thank everyone for all the feedback and we ask that you keep it coming. We are currently working on the next update to fix known bugs/glitches and the more things that we are made aware of, the more bugs we will be able to patch with this update.

We are excited about this update!

The newest update has arrived to the marketplace. This update includes the addition of a throwing knife. This was one of the most popular weapons that people asked for. So now we would love to hear your feedback on the throwing knife and how we can improve on it. Hit us up on twitter, email or just leave a comment but don’t let your ideas and suggestions go unheard.
The update also included a new machine gun. This is my personal favorite so far and so it is my weapon of choice. It is the SUB. If you don’t have enough kills to unlock it yet then you need to get busy. With the addition of the new gun, we also adjusted the gun sounds for each weapon to make them more distinctive.
Now our favorite part of the update; the addition of artwork from fans and also the voice of a big fan of the game as part of kill streaks. We had a contest and asked that our community send us in some artwork and we would get it into the game. We did receive quite a bit of artwork and we added it into the game. There were three pieces of artwork that went into this update and we still have more we can add so if we are given the opportunity then we will add some more. The contest is over but if you feel like you have something that you definitely think should be in the game then send it to us and we will see what we can do.
Killing streaks are in the game! We decided that getting killing streaks recognized was a big thing so we incorporated knifing kill streaks and gun kill streaks into the game. We were able to get a member of the End Of Days community to record his voice for the kill streaks. That member is DJ KEEMSTAR. He did an awesome job and you can hear him whenever you start getting more than two kills in a row up to ten. Or simply drop a grenade on someone and you will get Keemstar yelling KABOOOM!!
The update is available now and we are already hard at work on the next update. Get us your ideas, suggestions, bugs, glitches, needs and wants now so we can work on them.
We appreciate all the youtube videos of the game and please “LIKE” the fanpage of End Of Days!
