Hey guys, Jordan here.Merry Christmas! I know I said I wouldn't announce what Casey Games will be doing for 2013 until December 30th.But, to be honest, I couldn't resist.I would also like to welcome Casey Games' First EVER employee, Aidan Blackett.Aidan is an amazing artist and will be Casey Games' lead art director.So, without further ado, lets announce our new game.

Food World was an idea I came up with in early January 2011.Almost 2 years ago! I planned for it to be a virtual world (like Club Penguin) where you play as food and live in a giant kitchen.With different food-based rooms.Example: The fridge mall.The game failed.One year later, I planned to try do Food World again.So, I founded a games company.I called it Casey Games..Yes the original reason I founded Casey Games was to launch Food World (Seriously look at the first post on the blog).So after working on it, I sort of got bored and you guessed it, produced my first app!But now, because I have better programming skills and an amazing designer, we are going to give it another shot.We have an official blog up and running.Click here to view it!   Anyway, we plan to launch VERY Very very very soon & will be having an alpha party for the players (sort of like a meet-up on the game).So stay posted, follow me on Twitter and read the blog.We will give you an update very soon.

India - Recap

Saturday, December 8, 2012
Hey guys, Jordan here.Back with an update! (Note: Minecon video still going, just need time to edit.) I was in India! And before that, London.Which I already spoke about.India is definitely up there with Cannes as some of the best experiences of my life so far.Let me start off by saying, it was different, very very different, but in a good way.We took Air India, which was fantastic! This was my first ever 'long' flight.My longest flight before that was 4 hours so.It was also my first time out of the European continent.I was in Asia! Well, I always think about this.Does it count if you go to the Canaries? Because, technically they are in Africa, but owned by Spain, who are in the EU.Anyway, not the point.
We arrived at 2 in the morning on Thursday.Went to sleep, woke up at 2 PM.Went to 'Connacht Place or CP' it was crowded! It's sort of a shopping complex.We went to Mc Donalds.Which was sorta weird because due to religions beef is very rare in India because their religions don't allow you to eat it.So, I had Chicken Nuggets. :) Then the crazy bit happened.It was getting dark, it was raining, still fairly crowded, we wanted get back to our hotel.But, no Taxis!! What are we going to do? And then we saw it.... AUTO!
(Note: this video isn't of me, but you will understand)

It was crazy! No proper lanes, they don't read Traffic Lights, crazy! We went to bed
With Eduardo
Today, I was very very very very very very very tired because, I didn't go to bed Thursday night. :( We met up with the Tedx guys and went to a really nice dinner party, and Eduardo Strauch was speaking (1972 Andes Plane survivors, 16 people survived after 2 months in the Andes mountains after a plane crash and unfortunately, the only way to survive was to result to cannibalism) it was a very very touching story and Eduardo was really nice.We did a dry run of Tedx and...I flunked it, probably because I was tired.
Last day and it was the day of Tedxyouth@Chanakyapuri :D before I get to the story and the boy we met, here are pics, captioned pics of course.
Can you see me O.o

Signing autographs :)
Wake up.Get a taxi, American Embassy.Water, these really nice Cookies.Tedxyouth@Chanakyapuri, relentless curiosity was the theme.There were so many curious kids.I got to meet amazing people like Ethan Brown and Arthur Benjamin (Mathmagicians)

All in all, TedxYouth@Chanakyapuri and India in general was one of the greatest experiences of my life.Thanks for reading, guys.

Greenboy Update: Version 1.5 has been submitted to Apple.

The Future Of Greenboy Touch

Thursday, November 15, 2012
Hey guys, Jordan here.It's been a while since we last spoke.The last time we spoke was when Greenboy was released on iOS.A lot has happened since then.But, this post isn't the time to talk about it.Yes, I will be talking about.Because, some amazing things have happened.Today I would like to focus on Greenboy Touch & future updates and where I think the game could be heading.Both in the long term and short term.Let's talk about what you can expect in the latest update:
Greenboy Touch Version 1.5! iOS exclusive

  • A Completely updated UI to make the game more professional.Feedback has been great, but graphics are said to need work.It's on the way.
  • Possible Art updates, again with the Graphics
  • An Entire new open world! P.S: Expect me in it

Ok, that's currently planned for Version 1.5 of Greenboy Touch & like it says an iOS exclusive.I'll be honest, sales haven't been great on Android and also iOS.Lots downloaded when Free, but not a lot of people bought the game.Which brings me to the long term goals.
Recently speaking at The Smartphone and Tablet Games Summit, I had a chance to catch a few panels and keynotes and what I learned is:

  • Freemium is the next big thing, I want to make the game free soon, but implement ads, in-app purchases for example:Buying new worlds, Removing ads and things like that.One of the speakers pointed out something interesting:What paid app has ever reached No.1 on the Top Grossing charts? Exactly
  • I am also interested in things like Virtual Currency and I really like Tapjoy.Tapjoy is a virtual currency system that in the game instead of in app purchases, you click ads that earn you virtual currency in the game to buy virtual goods (Again removing ads or buying new worlds) and how I think this beats in App Purchases is that, even though the user isn't paying for anything, the developer is still monetizing.Question: 'Would you rather unlock a new world by downloading some free, probably fun game or paying real money.Exactly.
Considering Greenboy Touch in my opinion is still kind of Beta, these features probably won't be added for another few months.For the time being I am focusing on the latest version and also a HD version for iPad and a port to Windows 8.Thanks guys

Greenboy Touch now available on iOS and Android!

Tuesday, October 30, 2012
Hey guys, the wait is finally over, Greenboy Touch is now available on iOS!... and Android! This is a massive achievement in my opinion.It's really my first marketed game.It feels like Casey Games' first real release.Alien Ball feels like my game, Greenboy feels like Casey Games.In the beginning I didn't treat it as a company, but now I do.And now that it's a registered company, it's an actual company! I am very proud of this game, this unfinished game.Which is an actual game now, but a quite small game.If you are interested in the press release please Tweet me: @Caseygames.If you have an iOS device, you get to game for free, but be quick, this is a limited time offer.The game will cost 89c this time next week.I will leave you with that.Thank for your support and I hope you enjoy my our latest game

IMPORTANT: Greenboy Touch: Pricing Change

Tuesday, October 30, 2012
Hello, this is an important message from Casey Games.Soon 'Greenboy Touch' will be available on iOS platoforms. Today we are talking about that.You may recall we said 'Greenboy Touch' will be free until the second update. We will no longer be doing this offer. First of all, we don't know how long it's going to take to build the second update.From now on Greenboy Touch will be free for the first 5 days.We believe this is the fair choice.For both us and you, the consumer.Sorry for any inconvenience caused

Sunday, October 28, 2012
Hey guys, Jordan here.As you may know, this weekend I was at Gamecity7.Speaking also.It was great! Better than great, amazing! I got to play some really cool games including Need For Speed Most Wanted!Crysis 3 was also there, but it was 16+ only.Although they had 12 different venues around Nottingham, I was only able to see the Main Tent.But, that was enough to prove to me it was awesome!Here is a clip from me speaking:

Not only did I get to speak and have Greenboy Touch footage on the big screen for over half an hour, but I also got to meet one of my idols, a man by the name of Terry Cavanagh! Yes, Terry Cavanagh.The creator of Super Hexagon and The Letter V Six Times (VVVVVV).We met him on Friday morning at 11:00Am, he had a train at 11:30Am.So, we really appreciated him coming to see us!Thanks Terry if you're reading this :).It was really cool.And guess what, he played my game! Yes, he played my game!
Greenboy's claim to fame!
                                     Here is picture of the 'Cat Finding' level in Mission 1.

Here is one of the spike avoiding levels.
So, I will leave you now with a full gameplay on the big screen.Thanks for reading and Greenboy Touch snapshots in the next 2 weeks.

No new snapshot tomorrow, but we are almost there

Friday, October 19, 2012
Hey guys Jordan here, as the days go by we are almost ready to submit Greenboy Touch.So today, I am releasing the pricing, platforms and all of that fun stuff.
Because Greenboy is written in Actionscript 3.0, it has the capability of Adobe Air, the cross-platform software from Adobe.Meaning I can publish to iOS, Android, Blackberry, Mac & PC.So, there are a ton of possibilites, right?Launch will be iOS and Android, but my iOS users will be getting something extra.
Normally, the game will be priced at 1.59 (euros) but for launch (on iOS) it will be free.On Android the game will cost 1.59.

Oh yeah, and because we are so close to release date, I can't release a snapshot tomorrow, sorry guys!

The Development Of Greenboy Touch + More Gamecity Info

Tuesday, October 16, 2012
Hey guys, Jordan here.Like I promised, I will update you regularly with all the going ons in Greenboy Touch and I feel happy to say, we are getting very close to release.But, I want to also say something: Don't expect this game to be a big game, it will be, but not yet.I am describing the development of Greenboy Touch sort of like the Minecraft development.Starts small, expands.I plan on Greenboy Touch to start small and yes, expand.What I mean by expand is, when I first release Greenboy, it will be a free small game (Platforms and Date of release, next week or so).In the next 2-3-4 weeks, update 1 will come bringing some new levels and a new world, etc.The only problem I believe I may have is the fact "Will Apple allow the release?" considering it's small.And even better, if you manage to get the game for free, you will get all the updates for FREE.After the first update though, BOOM, 1.59!
So, get it early.Another thing I feel as though I have in common with Minecraft is this 'snapshot thing' I started.At the moment it's just me playing the game.But once the game is released, I will definitely start using Testflight to give you guys some BETA releases just before submissions.How would you feel about that? Also, for those of you attending Gamecity next week in Nottingham, don't forget to come by to the main tent on Friday October 26th at 14:00 for my demo.I will be interviewed first and then I will demo Greenboy Touch and show Alien Ball.(If you see me, don't forget to ask for some Alien Ball codes) Anyway, how do you like the sound of Greenboy's development? Please don't hesitate to Tweet me.Talk later.Bye guys!

Sunday, September 30, 2012
Hey guys, welcome to Casey Games 2.0, the future.Aswell as a new website and a new logo, some changes are being made.You probably saw that I wasn't really posting information on my games.I have some unfortunate news today, aswell as good news.The bad news first:

Ok, so the 2 games I was working on for quite some time have been cancelled.I am really really sorry and for those of you who wanted to see what The Big Bang Theory game would have turned out like, a .swf of the un-finished game will be available soon.
Now, the good news

  • Greenboy touch is back in production and is coming along really well - I know you guys will probably say something like 'He will cancel this too' or something like that.I promise you, this game will not be cancelled.
  • I am producing the game for 'National Children's Day in Brazil' and it will be on Fabrica's website soon. (Shh, it's already on Google Play for free, Click here) It's a small game and is made for little children, so don't troll)

An update on The Big Bang Theory Game

Monday, August 20, 2012
Hi guys Jordan here,  back with an update on 'The Big Bang Theory Game' for web and Mac and a secret iOS game that I am working on.So, let's start with the Big Bang Theory Update, a lot has been added since our Coder Dojo and a lot has gone into your feedback from the Newgrounds build and everyone else.I have spent a lot of time in debug mode and unfortunately the game isn't looking just like a 'game' yet.I am sad to say that we are looking at a Christmas time release, yes I plan on the game to be very very very very big.I will also look into an embargo date if anybody would be interested and some beta builds.Another thing I began work on since I lost all my Alien Ball RPG files was the final Alien Ball game for a while.This I also plan on taking a while till release.Only because I want it to be perfect, no bugs, no bad graphics, I want retina and sophisticated gameplay.I will also be posting regularly on Young Web on how to start developing apps, games, etc so stay tuned for that.Another, thing I will be doing a couple of times before the year is out is speaking, I will be at 'The European Pirate Summit' in Cologne, Germany in early September, I am most likely speaking at the London Smartphone And Tablet Games Summit and then another talk but I can't reveal anything about that just yet... For now, thank you for reading and giving us 10,000 hits.Thanks guys

Currently Working On: The Big Bang Theory Game

Friday, July 27, 2012
Hey guys, Jordan here.Sorry for not posting, haven't really had any time and honestly nothing to post about.Just wanted to make a quick 'update' telling you guys what I'm currently working on.So, about a week or two ago I was thinking of some good ideas for a game.I had always imagined a Big Bang Theory (TV Show) game and I had imagined it to be some sort of arcade style game.Since I knew that I couldn't find anything like this on the internet, I thought that if nobody else would do something like this, maybe I could try.So, I started this small game.On Wednesday of last week I went to the Coder Dojo Leinster house Dojo, which was really really cool and people were showing off their projects, I built a quick website and a small build of the game and took it with me.Unfortunately, I never got to demo it.But, while on the train home I tweeted
"Never got time to show my game at #daildojo but this is what I was planning to show:"
Then I got a reply from James Whelton (Co-Founder of Coder Dojo) saying this:
"He didn’t get a chance to demo it today at #dailsdojo, but @CaseyGames made an awesome Big Bang Theory game, check it"
Which was amazing! Then people after people after people were viewing the game & I got a lot of positive feedback.So, I have decided to work on this game until it is a full action packed game, here is the demo that I built for Coder Dojo:

As always, I would love to hear some feedback from you guys and if you liked it.Don't forget you can follow me on Twitter here  Talk soon guys-Jordan

Casey Games Website 2.0 On The Way

Wednesday, July 4, 2012
Hey guys, Jordan here, today I'm announcing something else new.Today I am announcing a revamp of the Casey Games website.As you might have known, I updated the Casey Games homepage back in March, but that was just a small one, a link to my Twitter and an Enter button.This time it's going to be different.Instead of just one homepage and a blog, this is going to be massive, I mean MASSIVE! I'm going to be adding sections like about Jordan and games and stuff on the site, not just Blogger pages.But, speaking of blogger.If I can configure my FTP server settings, I can put this blog into my website, isn't that cool? So, this project could take a couple of days, 2 or 3.And so talk to you soon-Jordan

Casey Games: Greenboy Touch

Wednesday, July 4, 2012
Hey guys, Jordan here.Today I am going to tell you a story:
One day just after I came back from the 'Cannes Lions Festival' I looked up "How to clear your desktop without uninstalling items on Mac" I got a response, and some bozo said "All you have to do is drag the items into your trash and empty it...It will still be on your desktop folder in Finder.So, I (stupidly) did what he said.Not really noticing what I had done.It was only 2 days later when I went to go and work on Alien Ball RPG wasn't there.Then I checked my desktop folder in Finder...Nothing was there! I was starting to freak out a bit..I had 2 massive projects, Greenboy (which I was going to expand on) & Alien Ball RPG.So, I tried to recover, but got nothing.So, I thought I had to start again from scartch, but I never had the time to do so.So, I decided to think of some new projects, and then I thought about Adobe and them giving me Creative Suite Master Collection.And so, came the idea of "Greenboy 2" and because nobody really played Greenboy, and it wasn't on Mobile devices, that I came up with the term "Greenboy Touch" which will be made in Adobe Air.I plan on releasing this for iOS and maybe Android considering the Adobe AIR runtime is way quicker on Android, but I can't just make a game and not put it on iOS.But recently, my Coder Dojo mentors were showing me a game that had developed in Adobe AIR, they published it on iOS and Android.It was way quicker on Android.I suppose thats because Android is Open Source (Fun Fact:Android is a Linux  based operating system) But, I'm going off track.Anyway, so Greenboy touch will take a couple of weeks to develop.But, because I don't need a paid Android developer account to test it on my Android tab & I have a paid Apple Developer License then I can test it and see if it's good enough.If I don't like it, well thats that.So, anyway expect an update in the coming weeks, I will start development once I get the software from Adobe.Thanks Guys-Jordan

Project: 1,000 Followers

Tuesday, July 3, 2012
Hey guys, Jordan here..Today I am announcing a project kind of thing.Ok, so today is Tuesday.I am trying to pass a major Twitter milestone & well I need your help.
Here is what I'm trying to accomplish:
I am Going For 1,000 followers by Thursday
Current followers:881
Followers From 1,000: 119
So, I'm going for 120 followers in like 2 and a bit days.Since December 11th 2009 when I joined Twitter I have always thought of the day when I reached 1 follower, then to 10, then to 100 and now 1,000, then 10,000, then 100,000 and then 1,000,000 (highly improbable...but still) the big 4 digit.My most popular site on Chrome now is Twitter, so I spend a lot of time on it. So, To help out you can CLICK HERE to make an automatic Tweet. Or you can just make any Tweet saying something like Follow @Caseygames, I will make a personal thank you to everyone who helps and if we get 1,000 by Thursday, not only will the original Alien Ball be free (but it is already is) But Alien Ball 2 will be aswell and hopefully when I get CS6 I will try as quick as I can for Greenboy Touch coming to Android soon.

What have I done since we last spoke.

Monday, June 25, 2012
Hey guys, Jordan here.Sorry for not having any time to update my blog, I've been EXTREMELY busy since we last spoke, and I'm not exaggerating.If you might have read my last post you might have heard that I was speaking in Cannes..CANNES!! Cannes Lions!! One of the biggest festivals in the world.With companies such as Twitter, Microsoft, YouTube, Facebook, Google, JWT, Adobe and a lot more taking part.Let's start it off, let me give you the whole story.Starting now:

"Well, it was just a week before I was on the plane to Cannes that I found out..I was going to Cannes.I was contacted by a really kind women called Anaka, she worked at a company called JWT and told me that the company had planned a Seminar at the Cannes Lions festival titled "Junior Worldmakers" Worldmakers, meaning I think people who change the world & well Junior being kids.They had asked me...ME to speak at the seminar with 2 other amazing kids! One Caine Monroy and another Adora Svitak.Caine being the creator of Caine's Arcade and Adora being an author since 7, a child activist and the youngest ever speaker at TED.I was soooooo happy to get this opportunity and to be honest..a bit shocked.Like, to stand alongside these amazing people.So, we were leaving for Cannes on the Saturday morning.
Caine and his arcade
So, on the Friday, my Mam (or as some of you outside of Ireland call Mom) was out at a friends birthday, she was coming with me the next morning.My dad had said he would drop us at the airport.But, just as I was about to go to bed, I got an email from the people at JWT giving me a schedule for the weekend.The first thing
 "06:00:LimoLink Car picks Jordan and Louise up from home and brings them to Dublin Airport
12:00 Go on Flight
14:00 Arrive in Airport, man holding sign saying "Casey" will drive Jordan and Louise to Hotel D'albier in LimoLink car"And I was like :O, my dad was supposed to be dropping us off, I was sooooo grateful and soo excited for the experience of a lifetime.So, when we arrived we took it easy for the day.But, on was a different story, when we woke up we went to the Cannes Lions exhibition, only to see two booths, YouTube giving away hats and beach balls, a fun video activity & FREE SMOOTHIES! And...on the other side, Microsoft with a booth, showing off Windows 8, Kinect and a fun Twitter competition that I will get into in a few minutes.
Hotel Room
So, there was a Twitter competition called Tweets in Space where you get 100 points by Tweeting #MSACannes and the person with the most points wins a FREE Nokia Lumia 900, which isn't even released in Ireland..You probably know what I'm getting at...I won the Nokia
Me on the screen
So, that night we had the dinner with the other speakers and the JWT team, It was really fun

So Monday was the big day, the seminar day.So we woke up and went to the hotel where we were meeting up..In a suite!It was fun and we got our hair and makeup done.And then we went to speak in front of about, 1,100 people.Here is the highlights:

It was really fun and also nervewrecking.After that, we had a really nice lunch and then we filmed a couple of interviews and a short piece for a Russian film team, which they were asking questions about children in the government and Caine and I, were like Ehhhh... But Adora was really really good at answering the questions.So, we went back to the hotel and I checked my email and received one from a man called Till Ohrman, who told me I had won a scholorship for Germany at the European Pirate Summit which I applied for a while ago.Things were really going my way, and still are.Then my Mam & I went to the beach and saw that Caine and the director of Caine's film, Nirvan were there.So, we made like a massive sandcastle and that was, fun!When leaving the beach, walking up the pier I spotted a logo, Adobe's logo! If you guys didn't know, I love Adobe.Greenboy was made in Flash & every single graphic for my game was  created in Photoshop.When I walked up I met these really nice people, who believe or not had seen our seminar....ADOBE HAD SEEN OUR SEMINAR! They were so nice and gave me a free Adobe T-Shirt and my Mam a bag full of goodies.They asked me to do an interview with them the next, day...I WAS GETTING INTERVIEWED BY ADOBE!
Me with the adobe guys!
So, the next day (Our Final day) I did an amazing interview with Adobe

And then, just after the interview had finished, Pooja who worked for Adobe said to me "Okay, you can either have Creative Cloud or Creative Suite 6 Master Collection" and when I heard that I was like :O :O :O :O, An amazing experience in Cannes, A Nokia Lumia 900, the chance to meet some amazing people and Free software.I feel like the luckiest kid alive.So, we got a LimoLink car home and when I arrived at my door, all my family were there to greet me.It was amazing.What a weekend! Then, today I got an email from a man called Graham Barlow, the editor of my favorite magazine called MacFormat, saying they'd like to interview me for the magazine, and now, IT'S MY LAST WEEK OF SCHOOL! Also, my last week of Primary School.I am sooo lucky and I am so grateful for that.Just a couple of months ago I said, "Hey, I could make an app" Now, look at me.Thank you soo much guys for sticking with me, thank you -Jordan

Casey Games: Announcing Green Boy

Monday, May 14, 2012
Hey guys, Jordan here.So, listen you are going to be really mad at me for what I'm about to say: Food World won't work, Smartfoxserver doesn't work with it.So, today I am announcing a new game (And you know I've said this a lot, such as No Jump, Alien Ball RPG is still in production though) which will be written in Actionscript, but published as .exe and .dmg (downloadable files, for Windows & Mac), Making it a PC game.So, I feel pretty confident about this one, considering I've been coding for the past 2 hours and I'm not bored, I hope this will be maybe a 2 week project, It's only going to be a small adventure game & it will be free, but if this goes well I will probably make a sequel, maybe sell it.So, without further ado, Green Boy:
I know what you are saying, these are the most crap graphics..Ever.. But, I'm not good at graphics, I like to code.Hopefully someday if I get a job in game development, I will be provided with graphics, by graphics designer, I will code it..You get me? So, anyway I will keep you guys posted -Jordan

Thursday, April 19, 2012
Hey guys, Jordan here, you might not think of this an achievement, but I will count it as one.So, I was playing Minecraft with my friend, Colm & my brother, Isaac.We were looking for Minecraft servers, we were up for a Hunger Games map considering everyone is talking about it.We eventually found one & after a while Colm left.So I played on &.... I WON! I came first, it was a 90 minute match & 27 players! Also, Isaac came 3rd, It was a challenge and very difficult, mods were throwing Fireballs, it was soo cool to win & now even though I'm most likely not, I feel like a Minecraft pro! Tomorrow I will wear my Yogscast shirt proudly :D

Leaving Facebook..

Wednesday, April 18, 2012
Hey guys, Jordan here back with an update, I am announcing that Casey Games & I have left Facebook.The reason being I don't like it, Number 1, the way people act on it with grammar and stuff. 2, The only time I ever use it is when I find a funny video on YouTube or something like that, 3 I don't like it, I prefer twitter the way it's fast and easy, 4 I've been acting the maggot, once you get sucked into Facebook you copy the grammar and the stuff like that, like well wua or something like that, again unlike twitter, I left Facebook because I dont want to act like that anymore and I've been just linking and stuff and now that's the end of it, it's most likely I won't join back anyway, thanks guys-Jordan non Facebooker since 18th April 2012

Alien Ball RPG Dev Diary: Tests, Tests, Tests

Thursday, April 12, 2012
Hey guys Jordan here back with another Alien Ball 3 Dev. Diary! Today I am going to be talking about tests of the game.First of all, this will be a bad game for adults, I mean it's going to be fun, but the fact that the d-pad has to be soo small is bad.I am going to do a test video showing you what it is like.So far, I think I know where I am going with this game.I need to do a lot more graphics, mainly rooms before we can get on with the actual development of the game.But, I think it will be an ok game.The game will be an RPG, with secret rooms, Mini-Games and tons more, the bad part is...Saving games, it won't be possible, I'm sorry.But, it's not going to be a big massive game & It's going to have updates, like I said in the last development diary, I want to get the game out first then, work on plugins, pause, iPad, etc.Again, most likely an iOS AND Android release.Also, if you are in Waterford be sure to listen to me on WLR FM tomorrow morning at 10:45AM
