The Incidence, Coincidences and Apple TV

TheIncidence_Banner

Retro-styled dodging game The Incident has been entertaining on iOS since 2010, but it still full of surprises. Developers Big Bucket Software have now brought the title to Apple TV, and expanded it to include ‘Coincidents’ mode so up to 4-Player can jump in.

Run, dodge and jump your way to safety as an angry rain of just about everything in the world falls and builds a mountain of platforms for you to climb up, up… up to the source of it all: the cause of THE INCIDENT.

You can start investigating The Incident over on iTunes now; to get playing on Apple TV, ready your Siri Remote, MFi compatible controller, or devices with the iOS version of the app and start dodging!

One game and three developers

Over the last few years, we’ve heard a lot of people express surprise when they learn about the local game development community:

There are game developers in Perth? Really?
That game was developed here?

As a community, it can be pretty disheartening to feel so invisible. Shipping a game is a huge achievement that should be recognised, and our local game developers should be celebrated like the stars they are!

That why Let’s Make Games maintains an directory of local game developers and keeps a record of locally developed games. If you haven’t yet seen our Games and Developers pages, check them out (and send us a profile if something is missing!).

We’ve just added the following developers:

And the following game:

Thanks to the developers for sending through profiles and bringing their game releases to our attention. As we’re purely volunteer-run, it sometimes takes a while before profiles appear online, so please be patient if you send one through (it will appear on the site eventually!)

This bring our total listings to 27 games and 17 developers. Not too shabby for an apparently small industry!
