Can you guess the word?

$5.99 Sale! First Class Flurry, Tommy and the Magical Words and Cindy's Sundaes for $5.99 each!

1 Feb 2010 - We are dropping the price of 3 of our games: First Class Flurry, Tommy and the Magical Words and Cindy's Sundaes to $5.99 !!

The normal price was $19.95 before, but we know everyone likes lower prices, so we're lowering the prices for these games. If you haven't tried one of these games, now is the time to do so and if you like, buy!

Here's a quick introduction of each of these games:

First Class Flurry is a time management game where you play as a flight attendant. Your job is to attend to all the passengers on the plane, getting them what they want. The game has been a big hit, so now is the chance to get it at a bargain price.
Tommy and the Magical Words is a word game adventure. The gameplay is similiar to Scrabble. You have to make words to create bridges to the next island so that Tommy can continue on his journey. The game was an IGF Finalist and received numerous awards. This is the first time you can get it at only $5.99 !!
Cindy's Sundaes is a match-3 game with unique mechanics. Similiar to Chuzzle but with a twist. The cool thing about the game is that you can design your own sundaes which will appear in the actual gameplay.

iWordz Preview: Our first iPhone game

29 Jan 2010 - Our first PC game and first game ever was a word game, so I guess it's fitting that our first iPhone game will also be a word game.

If you liked the keyword minigame in Tommy and the Magical Words, or if you enjoyed SandScript, this is a game you'll want to have on your iPhone.

Basically it is kind of like Hangman, except that you are given the definition of a word and you have to guess what the word is. You are given a starting "life" of 20, and each time you guess a wrong letter your life points drop by 1. You get life points back when you get a word right. The aim of the game is to get as many words as you can before you run out of life points.

Here's an example of what you might see in the game:

Do you know what the word is?

If you liked that, then stay tuned for the release :)

You can see more info and screenshots about the game at the iWordz page on our new Viqua Games iPhone section.

I have to say that during testing, we found the game to be lots of fun playing with friends or loved ones helping to guess the words. It's educational and exercises your brain too!

What's to come in 2010 from Viqua Games

28 Jan 2010 - 2010 should be an exciting year for us as many games and projects that we've been working on will finally be released. Here's a look at what to expect from us this year:

- New website. Actually, you are already looking at it. We've changed the way it looks, but more importantly, we've changed the structure a bit by creating subdomains for each section of the website. There's www.viquagames.com for this news blog which includes updates from every section. downloads.viquagames.com is where you'll find all the downlooadable casual games and HideNSeek is at hidenseek.viquagames.com. We'll be adding even more sections later :)

- More PC/Mac casual downloadable games. If you liked our previous downloadable games, we should have more of them for you this year.

- iPhone games! Yes, we've dedicated a few of our team members to iPhone game development. Our first game should be released very soon and we have more in development.

- More stuff to do on our website. We'll have more activities for visitors to our website that should be extremely fun

- Facebook games! We're working on a Facebook game too!

I'll have a preview of our first iPhone game up pretty soon. So stay tuned.

A look back at Viqua Games in 2009

28 Jan 2010 - It's late January, but hopefully not too late for a look back at 2009!

Starting at the beginning of 2009 our 6th casual downloadable game - Shop-N-Spree was released and it was a great success reaching No.2 on Big Fish Games top sales charts. It was our first game which we worked directly with Big Fish Games on and they were a great pleasure to work with. We're extremely proud of how the game turned out and the response from players :)

Shortly after the release of Shop-N-Spree I gave an interview with Roman Budzowski of ANAWIKI Games about its development and about Viqua Games in general, which you can read here.

We were supposed to release more games in 2009, but due to many things we weren't able to. But 2009 was still a great year for us because later in the year some cool things happenned :)

First, during fall 2009, we had First Class Flurry retail published by eGames. This was very exciting for us as it was the first time a game completely designed and developed by Viqua Games was available to buy in US in a fancy retail box :) Here's a pic of the box:

We also expanded our team to 10 people and moved to a new larger, more spacy office.

What all this means is that we've got lots of projects in development near completion to be released in 2010. It should be a very busy and exciting year for Viqua Games!

Shop-n-Spree Released!

29 Jan 2009 - Today we're extremely excited to announce the release of our latest game Shop-n-Spree!

Shop-n-Spree is a new game that we developed with Big Fish Games. It is a very unique mix of Hidden Object and Time Management style gameplay.

Your job in the game is to make sure customers get what they want. Find what they are ordering and give it to them. Use the x2 tags for extra score. Meet different customers who bring different gameplay challenges. And in addition to the normal levels, there are lots of mini-games that add to the variety and fun.

We really hope you enjoy the game!
