    Let me introduce you our latest title called Ministry of Broadcast, which is currently being developed in Game Maker: Studio 2 for PC & Mac. I will be posting devlogs regularly on our Tumblr page because it enables us to drive the traffic from multiple sources like itch.io and GameJolt to a single place.

    Our goal is to share the "behind the scenes" information with you in the upcoming devlogs and Tweets including the tips we have learnt along the way. I hope that sharing the knowledge we have gained will help to those of you struggling at some point.

    Please feel free to comment and share your thoughts and ideas.

    Thanks, appreciate that! Could you help us choose the logo? Which one do you like the most?

    The first one. Cause the second reads like "Ministry of M broadcast".

    Hahah, I haven't noticed that at all. And now once I saw it, I cannot unsee it anymore.

    The second one as the M is red and has more pop than a solid blue / teal. It stands out more.

    I vote second one for the ministry portion of it, the red acts as an important accent colour and gives the logo much needed contrast.

    Although I do prefer the title treatment (The Wall Show) on the first version.

    Regardless of which logo you go for this looks super interesting, great work!

    We have received another great feedback from our friend who proposed that squares in the first logo should be spinning, zooming in and out and the shutter inside will be widening and narrowing. I must say that is sounds pretty cool and we are already thinking about using this as a trap/obstacle or a boss inside the game.

    Nice, you mean that one where people had to keep riding their bikes to collect the points? I feel like Black Mirror already did most of the "dystopian future" ideas

    Hi fellow game makers, our new devlog post on UI and signposting is live on our website.

    It's been a while since we've updated this page. Ministry of Broadcast is in veeeeeeery active development and we are posting mainly on Twitter.

    You can see and play an early build of the game at the upcoming conference Reboot Develop, is any of you coming? Would be nice to meet another community members.

    Peter

    Thanks, let me show you an outdoor scene, we are currently working on. This is a basecamp where the main character will spend the time between the levels.

    It's alive! (not the game, just the logo, Duh). Earlier we've got a lot of valuable feedback on our game logo and we've finally found a time to make it animated. How do you like it?

    Yesterday was a big day for us - we've been invited to talk about Ministry of Broadcast in the Czech radio station in Prague. I must say that it was quite an experience and we truly appreciate all the interest that we get from you.

    There is a whole new level under development which we will playtest on our next conference called Game Access that starts in a few days. Once the show is over, I will sum up the experience we've had over the couple of previous months and share it here.

    Game Access 2018 is over and our team had a blast! John Romero stopped by to play our game and I've summarized our 2 previous conferences in this blog post. Also there's included our first trailer which has been done over the night just for the purpose of the conference.

    Today we got an email that Ministry of Broadcast got nominated for GDWC week's FAN FAVOURITE.

    Honestly the games that we are competing against there look amazing and I am a fan of 39 days to Mars or Flipping Filip so it's an honor to be listed among them: https://thegdwc.com/

    Finally we are in Tokyo, curing from the jet lag at the hotel room and tomorrow TGS2018 starts. Pretty excited!

    Except for the game itself we've been spending the several previous months to deliver a tangible product for our fans - to have something memorable, something that would remind you of the game. We've had a lot of fun building this 3D art collectible figure but also went through a lot of trials and errors while searching for someone who could deliver the best quality of the material with the required level of detail.

    In collaboration with formwurx from UK, we've finally managed to achieve what we aimed for.

    You can preorder the figure at Ministry of Broadcast.

    And you can check the full story on our Behance.
