Bundles of Love, Bundles of Joy

We’ve put together a brand new Indie Bundle with our friends at Dejobaan Games, Digital Eel, Farbs, Lazy 8 Studios, Llamasoft, and Nifflas’ Games!

The bundle features AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!!: A Reckless Disregard for Gravity, BrainPipe, Captain Forever, Cogs, Saira, and Space Giraffe (valued at nearly $80). Lucky for you, we’re selling the bundle for a mere $19.99!

We're passing the savings on to YOUUUUUU!

We highly recommend you hop on over to http://www.theindiebundle.com and snag a copy before it’s too late!

But wait, there’s still more good news! If you didn’t get to chance to pick up the last Indie Bundle, it’s still available on the Indie Bundle Site!

And if you’re REALLY itching to get your game on, you can grab the Mega-Love Bundle which includes both the Summer-of-Love Bundle and the original Indie Love Bundle — over $160 worth of games — for the ludicrously low price of $29.99.  Now that’s a bargain, ain’t it?

As with all games at the CP Store, you can access and download your games at any time — no DRM, no middlemen. And if you already own games in the bundle, you can send your extra copies to your friends, so they can enjoy them too!

The sale ends Thursday Wednesday, Sept. 22nd, at 11:59 PM, so act fast and pick one up today!

Cipher Prime Goes to IndieCade

INCREDIBLE NEWS!!! We are ecstatic to announce that BOTH Auditorium and Fractal have been chosen as finalists in the 2010 IndieCade festival!

For those of you who don’t know, IndieCade is an annual event in Culver City, CA that features all different types of independent games from every genre and for every platform imaginable. It’s a three day festival-conference hybrid that gives the indie game community the opportunity to share knowledge and ideas while celebrating independent developers from all over the globe.

Needless to say, we feel very honored to receive such recognition and are incredibly excited to be attending the event in October.

We could never have achieved this without the loyal support of our fans, friends and followers. Thank you all so much for helping us reach such heights!

Keep an eye out for pictures and news from the IndieCade conference in a few weeks!

Kerry Joins the Team!

Hey internet,

I’d like to introduce myself as Cipher Prime’s newest team member.

It’s been just over a month since I started here at CP, but now that I’ve officially been dubbed a “Zealot”, I can finally unveil myself to all of you.

So just to fill you guys in, here’s a quick recap of what the past month has been like at the studio:

Right off the bat, Will and Dain had me designing the new levels for Auditorium HD (only after I was able to beat the game). Thanks to Auditorium’s level editor, the process of actually building the levels was relatively simple. The tricky part was coming up with puzzles that were unique, intuitive and challenging- but never TOO challenging, of course. This can prove to be difficult if you’ve been staring at the same puzzles for days on end. Needless to say, after each round of testing, the levels had to go through several iterations before they started to feel like they were flowing nicely.

From there, it was on to choosing color palettes to go along with Dain’s new compositions and re-testing the levels on the PS3 build.

Between all of that, miscellaneous design work, putting together our First Friday event, and a healthy amount of Starcraft, they’ve kept me pretty busy for sure.

You all can expect to hear more from me in the coming months but for now, I’ve got to get back to Startcraft. Just kidding… Sort of…


First Friday at Cipher Prime

Last month, in true Old City spirit, the guys at Drink Philly (our neighbors across the hall) hosted an open house for “First Friday”. The event was a huge success and we’ve got some great news!

They’ll be doing it all over again tomorrow night! But this time, Cipher Prime is getting in on the action! Here at the studio, we will be showing off both Fractal and Auditorium as well as featuring the work of local artists Alex Hohlov and Rachel Kantor.

Last Month’s First Friday Event at Drink Philly

Next door, Drink Philly will be offering cocktail tastings, FREE food from Continental and showcasing a few artists of their own.

This event will be a ton of fun and totally FREE so if you’re in the neighborhood, stop by our new office, play some games and have a drink on us!

239 Chestnut St.
5pm – 9pm

Don’t forget: there will be an after party!
