W21

Just a quick note to let you know that we’re under Zaah now. Come visit the new website, facebook, and twitter. Plus, if you’re looking to inquire about something and want to prove you’ve done your research, email nyc at zaah dot com from now on, instead of the submission form on this page.

We’re still doing amazing things in NYC, there’s just more of us now, with bigger projects and a shorter name (no one will call us 21st Century Games ever again!)

Thanks all, see you at Zaah!

Gameplay from MAXIMUM ARCADE.

New iOS release!

21st Street Games has partnered with MAXIM Magazine to release MAXIMUM ARCADE for iPhone and iPad and iPad mini (when it launches.)

MAXIMUM ARCADE includes 3 arcade classics, all with a MAXIM twist:

Max-Man: a pellet-eating pie chart not running from any ghosts

Memory: don’t forget about these ladies.

Foosball: much more portable than the original

 

The app is universal, so one purchase gets you iPad & iPhone. You also get local multiplayer for Memory and Foosball. Android version coming soon.

3 classics for $0.99, are you game?

Thank You, Kickstarters.

We are at the end of our Kickstarter, and we have not been funded. We would sincerely like to thank  the 197 people who backed us and all of you who have contributed to spreading the word. The outpouring of love from our fans was incredible and we value it very much. 

At this time, we will not be moving forward with STKA as outlined in the kickstarter, and we will continue to make games. Of course we will continue to support the community built around the original Techno Kitten Adventure. In fact, we just released the Nyan Cat pack for iOS, with a brand new song.

Running a Kickstarter can feel like a public chopping block. Even with positive coverage from some of the the highest-profile sides the gaming internet has to offer, and knowing we’ve made a cat game once before, safety is not guaranteed. We’re closing this chapter of our summer looking forward to the next project, and proud of the art we created for Kickstarter. We were able to make the most share-worthy Kickstarter video of all time, now available on YouTube, and we’ve created art that the gaming community has embraced, immortalizing some of our game industry idols in “kitteh” form. Knowing the creativity that lives in this studio, we can’t wait to show you what we’re working on next. Keep an eye on us, our next project is in the works.
Techno Kitten is about the love and happiness that comes from a journey. We’ve put a lot of love into this adventure, and have received a lot of love back. We literally get a new quote from fans every day; in YouTube videos of people playing the game, in tweets and Facebook posts. Every Google alert is a compliment. I received this the other day from a fan. Posted with permission:
"My boyfriend just got back from Afghanistan and we’re nearing our one-year anniversary. We played TKA as a way to stay close while he was gone— when he would call, he’d tell me his high score and we’d compare. Silly, I know. When he found out about this project, he was really excited. He called me immediately and showed me all the FREAKING AMAZING stuff you guys are doing. He funded you guys up to jetpack kitteh, I believe, but we both wanted to do more. This game means everything to us" -A.B., TKA Fan
Knowing that something that we created was enjoyed and valued by another person; this is the ultimate goal of everyone who works in games, of everyone who dreams of working in games. This message and every compliment we get brightens our day. We’ve reached a goal that you just can’t set on Kickstarter. We want all of our fans and backers to know that we will continue to create “freaking amazing” stuff. 
Added an FAQ to the kickstarter, hope this clears up some of the questions. We’re dedicated to seeing this through. 11 days left, and thank you everyone who has shown support, it means so much.

Love Letter to our Fans - Plus a free GAME!

We’ve had quotes from some major gaming outlets and commentators, but this is by far my favorite:

Our fans are so wonderful. Techno Kitten at its core is about love and happiness, and hearing about their experiences just warms us to the core. We’re honored to be a part of you, and A.B.’s, everyday lives. Thank you.

Back to the campaign: we’re not getting funded at Ouya-like speed. So help promote our kickstarter, and reward our fans who have been bombarded with kickster links, we made a game! The Dr Meatballs Advergame 2000. Play it free, now, online, here! http://technokittenadventure.com/drmeatballs/ All you need to install is the free Unity plug-in. 

If you finish it, at 100,000 points, there’s a secret code that will lead you to greatness. Where to put that secret code? The only hint we’ll give is that perhaps it is on the game’s official website.Google may help, but probably not until tomorrow, since the page just went up. Happy hunting! 

In other Techno Kitten news, we’ve submitted the iOS update, which includes a nyew pack. Cross your fingers for approval!

Yaaaaaay, 101 dalmatians backers! For all of you, we’re almost done with a little browser game called Dr Meatball’s Advergame 2000, which should be up onTechnoKittenAdventure.com tomorrow. We’ll post the link to it here. We’re also working on an update to the iOS game aimed at bringing the news of the kickstarter directly to players of Techno Kitten. Cross your fingers that it goes through, and PS, that update just *may* include that pack that was postponed with a certain toaster pastry cat…
Also, we made a new celebrating Markus “Notch” Persson, Earl of Awesome sandbox games. We  dig his work. Notch, and Tim Schafer and UberHaxorNova have yet to respond to their kittehs but we hope they, and you, like them.

25 Days to Go

What a week. We started our campaign on Sunday night, and have been plugging away at it throughout the week. Thank you to everyone who has contributed; we’re ramping up our efforts to reach out to the gaming community. You can help by spreading the word that our pitch video is perfect to watch while they’re waiting for their Ouyas.

We’re not planning on updating over the weekend, put we will be happy to answer any questions on Monday. But before the weekend, I want to thank everyone at The Creature Blog for spreading our UberHaxorNova kitteh yesterday, you all rock!
