  1. The dinosaurs may not be all *that* scary, but celebrate Halloween anyway by taking 50% off my game revival DINO EGGS: REBIRTH. Four days only. Begins tomorrow (Friday) morning on Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/449320/
  2. How a true Time Master beats one of the most difficult levels in DINO EGGS: REBIRTH -- It's a spidery cavern that is itself an homage to another 8-bit game MINER 2049'er. On Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/449320/ #retrogaming #indiegames #indiedev
  3. Thank you, Catherine Dallaire, for this post on your Tumblr page "C64 Screengrabs." And thank you for saying that DINO EGGS: REBIRTH is "just as addictive and fun as its predecessor" http://c64screengrabs.tumblr.com/post/148321002042/todays-post-is-a-special-one-dino-eggs-which-i
  4. Some buy my new game DINO EGGS: REBIRTH because they played the heck out of the original DINO EGGS -- but never actually bought it !! Shocking, isn't it? Well -- if by selling DINO EGGS: REBIRTH, I can alleviate any guilt, or bring anyone emotional closure -- I'm happy to provide that service. :-) www.DinoEggsRebirth.com http://store.steampowered.com/app/449320/
  5. Hey, LiqMat, Thanks for your thoughts -- and thanks for buying the new game!! Yes, we've talked about supporting the literal original 8-bit pixel graphics throughout the game -- and adding support for 320x200 (or the Apple II 280×192) resolution could be a cool part of that. Best, DHS
  6. Thank YOU, 2Ni. I look forward to seeing you on the Steam Leaderboards. (As you may know, "Dino Legs" itself grew into "Dino Eggs: Rebirth.")
  7. How perfect for a #ThrowbackThursday -- ! As of today -- DINO EGGS: REBIRTH, a full-featured revival of my Apple II game DINO EGGS (1983) -- is available on Steam! http://store.steampowered.com/app/449320 #retrogaming #indiedev
  8. Very interesting comments, Carlsson and Keatah. I've been encouraged so often to just "do a Kickstarter" -- as if that were a simple and casual thing to do -- but it has never felt natural to me. Perhaps a generational thing. Yes, it is a cliche to say that my game was "a labor of love" -- but that's truly the case. My efforts at marketing are pained and often painful. But my memories of crafting this expansion of Dino Eggs will always be wonderful ones. To have shared my original vision with someone who was 10 years old when Dino Eggs first came out .... And then to be creative partners with that person in this new game.... That's very special. :-)
  9. Thanks OLD CS1! I hope you'll consider posing your review on the Steam page, too. I'm publishing another blog post on Gamasutra latter today I hope. This time, my musings about very very very early online gaming, circa 1990. Best, DHS
  10. A THIRD of a CENTURY after original 8-bit game "Dino Eggs" -- the new "Dino Eggs: Rebirth" comes to STEAM next Thursday June 9. Will do some give-aways of Steam Keys on social media next week... http://store.steampowered.com/app/449320
  11. A delightful review of "Dino Eggs: Rebirth" from a Commodore 64 veteran on the game website Play Nice Play Now: "A Glorious Return From Extinction... Incredibly satisfying..." "At six to seven hours in, and with plenty more perfect ratings and achievements to unlock, I can say that for a fan, like myself, playing the classic game mode alone was worth the entry price. David Schroeder and Eric Ferrot have done a supreme job bringing this classic back from the dead for a new generation. It successfully recaptures the feeling of the old Dino Eggs, while adding more to the experience to keep it fresh." Full Review at: www.playniceplaynow.com/2016/05/20/dino-eggs-rebirth/ Here we are on Steam -- Release date June 9: store.steampowered.com/app/449320/
  12. Thanks to David Cameron -- perhaps not the David Cameron you're thinking of -- but the host of the UK's "One Up Gaming" who invited me onto his latest excellent podcast. We chatted about the good old days, "Dino Eggs" and "Dino Eggs: Rebirth." https://twitter.com/OUGOfficial/status/729579670719582208 Update -- www.DinoEggsRebirth.com got the Greenlight, and the new game will be released on Steam on Thursday June 9. http://store.steampowered.com/app/449320
  13. Here's a curiosity for Throwback Thursday... A "Dino-Eggs" for the old Vic 20 computer dated 1984 -- one year after my "Dino Eggs" came out for the Apple II and Commodore 64. Too many similarities with my game to be a coincidence, but it doesn't seem to be a full-featured copy. In this version, you hop up to grab the Dino Eggs out of the air (!) I hadn't seen this before. Does anyone else remember it? #TBT #retrogaming
  14. In response to player requests, today's update to our game DINO EGGS: REBIRTH adds: -- Online leaderboards -- Co-op multiplayer -- Graphic background options -- Options for Italian and Japanese -- And more... See www.DinoEggsRebirth.com for details. Thanks! #indiegame #indiedev
