Save Xmas is the first game Michael has developed for iOS devices. Michael has been interested in game development for years, and since the recent interest in smartphones, the mobile gaming market has increased drastically. Michael has been working on the game for a good few months leading up to November, here is what he had to say:
"At the start of 2011, I had a idea for a game, it was a very big game for me as a beginner to try and develop, so I put that project on hold for a bit. For a few months after that I was developing some small projects (which were not going to be released). In August, I had that light bulb moment when a idea pops into your head - 'Let's make a Christmas game', and that's where it all started."
"I researched possible story lines, plots and objectives until I reached the end product I have today. It took a good few months to develop the game before even going into BETA. The feedback during the BETA testing was great, it provided we with such great ideas, I then used those ideas and developed them into the game. At this point I would like thank everyone involved during the testing of the game"
"I am pretty pleased with what I have achieved during these few months, and especially for a beginner in the whole game development industry. I have a few game ideas in the works right now, and will hope to start rolling them out Spring 2012, stay tuned"
