Ace on Steroids released!

I made it! Ace on Steroids is now available on the three platforms I intended to get and YOU can get its source code by just getting the game for just around 1 buck (US$1.29, €0.99, £0.79 and 80 MS Points on Xbox 360).

Here is the PR I sent over some online media press:

PARIS, FRANCE. – April 17th, 2012

Indiefreaks studio proudly announces the release of Ace on Steroids on Windows, Xbox 360 & Windows Phone 7. Ace on Steroids is a beautiful simple top down asteroids shooter game yet the promise lands in the fact that every purchaser of this game will be granted a full access to the game source code and assets.

Their goal is to share their knowledge with as many game developer “wannabees” as possible to support game development creativity and quality.

By sharing best practices and real examples to a wide audience, we improve the chances to see new game developers joining the party and make great games for us to play” says Philippe Da Silva, Indiefreaks studio owner. “We believe Ace on Steroids players will have a lot of fun making their games and, who knows… Maybe we’ll team up and create some other great games together.”

    Congrats on the release, fun game as I just downloaded on Xbox. After downloading how do I get access to the source?

  2. Philippe Da Silva says:

    Thanks Greg.

    Once you purchased the game, you’ll just go to the main menu and hit the “Source” menu item that’ll explain you how to access the source code of the game ;)

    I bought through IndieCity and can’t even get the download client to work…granted it’s just $1 but should’ve gone with Desura…

  4. Philippe Da Silva says:

    Hi Ken,

    IndieCity client works great on the different systems I tried it out. Contact them directly to ask how to get the client to work: they are pretty cool guys and generally make their best to help players and developers ;)

    If that isn’t the case, let me know and I’ll push it for you ;)

  5. Ken says:

    Hi Philippe,

    Yes they did fix the client, it was a couple dlls that weren’t packed.

  6. Ken says:

    Hi Philippe, I followed the direction to acquire the source, what’s the turn around time for that? thanks…

  7. Philippe Da Silva says:

    I believe your comment and my email to acquire the source crossed by ;)
    Let me know if that isn’t the case.
