Anyone dabble in game design?

    I worked, as an intern, in the AAA games industry in the early 2000s as a modeler/level-designer. Since then I have worked as a designer/developer in other industries.

    Last summer a couple friends an I made a mobile game, Sheared, adapted from a Flash game I made a few years ago.

    I designed the gameplay, artwork, and sound effects. Screenshots can be viewed on my website.

    The premise of Sheared is that you have a flock of sheep you shear with your clippers to collect wool, to craft items, to earn money, to upgrade your clippers, to collect more wool. It is an action game, mixing shoot 'em ups, endless running, and crafting.

    Sheared is available for iOS and Android devices.

    We used GameClosure to develop and build the game for those platforms. That was before Unity added native-2d features. I have thought about recreating the game in Unity as there are many more features and general polish I would like to add to the game.
