Live from the 360iDev Game Jam!

The Campfire Apps team has been working diligently for the past 5 hours on an app for the Game Jam at the 360iDev conference in Denver. Our game for the game jam is “Present Drop” and it’s Christmas themed! Shawn has been working on the coding, while Stephanie has been designing the artwork for the game. Our goal is to finish the game tonight; or at least get it to be functional. Keep an eye out for more updates about the game, because it’s one that we hope to be releasing this winter.

Happy Holidays from Campfire Apps!

We have been quite busy here at Campfire working hard to end the year with a bang! We are very pleased to have gotten three apps finished this year and submitted into the App Store. Our Henry suite of games is not yet complete, but we have enjoyed sharing these with you. We would like to celebrate these apps with you by reviewing our timeline and giving a little bit of background information on the apps.

First of all, Henry is a character that is inspired by our dear friends’ first baby. The “real” Henry is only 6 months old, but we loved the idea of making our first main character for a game have some personal connection.

In October, we released Henry’s Spooky Headlamp, our first app under the new company, Campfire Apps. Spooky Henry (as we refer to it within the company) was a Halloween themed game featuring a host of spooky, kid-friendly characters and graphics. We created a unique seek-and-find interface with a cool spotlight feature and hidden objects. For this game, we had a soundtrack created by a local musician, Jordan Fritz, and the voice-over was done by Shawn’s cousin, Matt Cole. This was not our first idea for a Henry game, but we wanted to see what it was like to release a seasonal game. Our next app, Smart Henry, would be pretty close to our original idea.

In late November, we released Henry’s Smart headlamp, which was a learning game focused on early learning skills. Players are able to choose to practice lowercase letters, uppercase letters, numbers 1-20, and basic shapes and colors. For Smart Henry, we used a professional sound studio for the voice-over and soundtrack, Clean Cuts studio in Baltimore. In this new game to the Henry suite of games, we created 3 backgrounds that all depict a nighttime scene. This was a fun game to work on, and for me, as a previous Kindergarten teacher, this was a great way to use all that I know about early education and be able to transfer it to my new job!

In early December, we released our third and final app for the year, Henry’s Winter Headlamp. This is much like Spooky Henry and is obviously seasonal. We were excited to share a new version of Henry, dressed and ready for winter fun! He now sports a cute fuzzy winter hat under his headlamp, long pants, and a scarf, mittens, and jacket. In this version, Henry is searching through a two different winter scenes for a slew of frosty friends and objects. We chose a fun soundtrack with jingle bells and used the same voice-over as Smart Henry.

It has been such a pleasure to work on these apps this year and we are really excited for all of the possibilities for next year. We are not done yet with our Henry suite of apps, we still have a few more ideas we want to try, but we will be introducing a new character in the New Year and new apps to go along with this new character. So keep your eye out for new products from us in the New Year!

It has been a great first year for Campfire Apps and would like to thank you all for your support and help in spreading the word about our company and our products. As you may have guessed, we will be taking a little break over the holidays to spend time with our families and gear up for the New Year. Happy Holidays and Happy New Year to all of you from all of us!

This is the third app in our suite of Henry games and we are very excited to share it with you and your families during this holiday season. Henry’s Winter Headlamp is the perfect app to get for your kids during the holiday / winter season as it features all winter-themed artwork and prizes. Your children will definitely enjoy playing this game on the way to Grandma’s house or sharing it with their friends or cousins during all of those fabulous holiday events you will be attending. We think it is the perfect way to pass the time while waiting to open all of those presents!!

To celebrate the release of our third game and last app for the 2011 year, we are going to have our first ever Virtual Launch Party! The event will take place on our Facebook page this FRIDAY, December 16th. All you have to do to participate is become a fan of our Facebook page (just visit our page and click the LIKE button!) and then visit the page throughout the day on Friday for all of the fun! We will be sharing some very exciting news, lots of great artwork from the game, videos, contests, and giveaways.
