Bankers take on Eurogamer!

Hi everyone! Eurogamer Expo was amazing. For those of you not already in the know, Greedy Bankers vs The World was selected as a finalist in the Indie Game Arcade, and so I got to demo the game to visitors at Earl's Court from Thursday until Sunday. It was exhausting, but so much fun!

I'll be doing a proper write-up of the event soon but, suffice it to say, Greedy Bankers was really well received. Everyone seemed to love playing, especially once they started stealing from their friends!

Here's a selection of video interviews I did during the event - I'll let you know when more appear!

The awesome guys from Bit Socket popped by the indie arcade and interviewed me and some of the other finalists

The SweetFFA team interviewed me as my team took to the queues to entertain the waiting crowds!

Eurogamer TV interviewed some of the indies to find out just how indie we really were. Did my credibility remain intact? Find out here!

Greedy Bankers vs The World: Submitted to the App Store!

This is a very exciting time indeed. Greedy Bankers vs The World is now submitted to the App Store, and is awaiting review. I hope to have the game available for download next week, which will coincide with something very exciting. But I'll wait for the official announcement to tell you what exactly that is!

In the meantime, I would like to say a big thank-you to the beta testers, who were essential in getting the game finished and polished ready for release. Feedback from the testing team has been comprehensive and very promising, and I really appreciate their hard work and input.

The final couple of weeks of development were pretty hectic, with me trying to get the game ready for this event. I guess you'd call it "indie crunch", and having set myself the deadline of Monday 12th to submit the build, the last weekend was tiring indeed!

I'll keep you up with more information as things are announced. In the meantime, I've uploaded a press pack to the Greedy Bankers site, which pulls together screenshots, announcements and the game description for easy use by press and bloggers. Feel free to take a look.

Calling beta testers!

Hey all! Greedy Bankers vs The World is now ready to go out to beta testers, so please do comment or email me (aitchesongames[at] if you'd like to get involved.

The latest video shows the current build of the game, which is getting very close to completion, with just a few loose ends to wrap up and some balancing work to do. Which is, of course, where beta testers come in handy! If you'd like to try out the game with your friends and family, and are happy to give me your thoughts and feedback, please do get in touch.

Hope you enjoy watching and I look forward to hearing from you!
