Retirement of Our Older Apps

To our fans:                                                                                     

Thank you for downloading, playing, and loving our apps! ReignGames has enjoyed creating such fun and high quality games. As our products evolved, we were able to gain experience in the market and develop a variety of applications. However, maintaining too many apps can be detrimental for all of them. That’s why we’ve decided that it’s time to retire some of our older apps. By “retire”, we mean that the app will no longer be updated, and this includes bug-fixes.

By the end of 2013.

The following apps will not be updated, but they will be available in the app store.

Thank you again for your patronage! We appreciate our millions of fans, and we look forward to creating more entertaining and cutting-edge apps for you!


DIY Book/Magazine App Creation

Developing custom apps can be quite a significant cost for small publishers or independent authors, so we thought we'd review some of the leading options for creating book and magazine apps, e-readers and the like.

Which option is best really depends on who you are and (unfortunately) the depth of your pockets. However, you should be careful not to overlook the fact that one man’s ‘limited flexibility’ is another man’s ‘simplicity.’ Here are some options:

Monster Chorus: Apple’s “App of the Week” (again!) in the China App Store

Our children's music app Monster Chorus seems to be really striking a chord with Apple: back in June, Monster Chorus received a headline feature in the China App Store, and this week it has been featured again as the iPhone App of the Week!

You can check out Monster Chorus (free) on the iTunes App Store here, and also check out our Monster Chorus Facebook fan page here.

Monster Chorus promo video!

The Monster Chorus promo video is now online (also available on Vimeo)!

The video was recorded at Juan Claudio's home and stars his lovely wife and daughter. We rented some camera and lighting equipment from the nice folks at Vison Rouge Shanghai and did the recording in an afternoon. Fluxa was the photographer, Anna directed and did the editing, and while Juan Claudio and I provided moral support (i.e. ate pizza).

Here are a few behind the scenes photos:

Monster Chorus was recently the #1 iPad Music game in the US App Store.

Discovering drawing men with mustaches with Lillian

For the new update for our kids’ app Monster Chorus, Lillian had to create an illustration of the farm in the song “Old McDonald”.

This was the first version that we did of the facial hair of the farmer. As here in China one doesn’t meet men with striking mustaches on an every day basis, we did a little research.
We found the differences between classical Hungarian, Greek, Middle Eastern, Austrian mustaches, as well as the stock-photo version of old-man-with-mustache, and a few unique cuts and styles.

After studying several pictures of men with mustaches intensely, we revised our version of the facial hair of old McDonald to come up with these two versions:

Which of the mustaches do you like best?
