BOCO Release!

Binary Cocoa has released their new game BOCO for PC, tablets and android devices at bocogame.com! You can also download the game for your mobile device and tablets on the google play store. We have been slaving the better part of 2014 to bring this game to light and are pleased to be able to share the results with everyone. Cream sodas all around!

Our major plan of attack is to show off the game at the Open West conference next month in Orem, Utah. There we will demo the game on tablets and plan to have a tournament where people will pit them selves against each other in the ultimate BOCO showdown of the century. Feel free to bring your chainmail and broad sword if it helps you feel like more of a gaming warrior. Just don’t kill anyone. Come out and share this most triumphant moment with us!

Here is what the final game looks like:

As for our other games we are putting more effort into IT Simulator, which is getting some more characters like this guy:

And this kid that whacks everything with a baseball bat:

We’re also doing some major level overhauls and adding more environments to make it more diverse. We also have a player select menu that should have people reminiscing on the old days of Street Fighter 2. Those certainly were the cool times.

Collider is is being steadily worked on by Joseph and Braden while Kawata and Stephen work on IT Simulator and Metanet Hunter:Battle. We have the first bosses for Battle working and are super happy with the results that you can see here:

We’re going crazy with the particles on this one and it’s going to be awesome. That and we have some big plans for how we are going to be building the world that we’ll share once they take shape.

Check out BOCO if you get the chance and let us know what you think!

Binary Cocoa Heads for the OpenWest Conference

Summer is on its way and Binary Cocoa is thawing out its plans for the OpenWest conference at the Utah Valley University on May 7th through the 9th. They will be packing up the arcade cabinet and making the road trip down from beautiful Idaho to the city for the technology packed weekend. Geeks and nerds…rejoice, and please bring your soldering guns.

This year were hoping to up the ante by presenting BOCO, our latest release with those that will pass by our booth. We have come up with an elegant solution to the server handling and have made the game workable on touch devices. Last year we presented Hexapod Defense Force, which turned out to be a hit but was somewhat limited because it was a one player game. BOCO is a two player game that we hope people will have a grand time battling it out against each other.

We are also going to be doing a presentation where we will be discussing Löve 2D and how to get started working on games. Last year’s presentation can be found on Youtube:

There are many surprises that we have planned to spread the word about what we’re doing, but I won’t mention them here just to keep the element of surprise up our sleeves. It’s not going to be a clown throwing pies. We can tell you that much already.

We hope everyone gets the chance to come say hi to us at our booth! If you find yourself at the conference in May (hopefully willingly), then keep us in mind.
