“Interface First” Game Design

At Cipher Prime, we create games constantly. You may only see one or two of our games released a year, but behind the scenes we make games weekly — sometimes even daily. The biggest problem is always getting started. Game jams help by providing a theme, but there are so many different places you could […]

It’s time for a new Game: Enter Pulse

Yay! Finally a new game! Well, we’re not quite there yet. But, it’s about time we at least tell you what we’ve been up to. The name of our new little baby is Pulse. She is a wonderful mix of music and rhythm game for the iPad. Rather than go on and on about her, […]

Introducing: Space Whale Studios

Not only do we currently have our Cipher Prime Bundle happening, we are overwhelming excited to announce the debut launch for another Philadelphia Studio: Space Whale Studios. As of yesterday, they launched their first title called “Return All Robots” on the XBox Live Marketplace. And today, they are launching their PC version right from our […]

We’re moving and we need your help!

Today, Media Temple was DDoS’d and we were thrown for another loop. Internally, we’ve been having stupid issues with Windows 7 permissions and […]

Uh oh! Launch Postponed until Tuesday Afternoon

I sure hate to be the bearer of bad news, but we’ve been running a lot of download tests today and we just weren’t happy with the results. Preorders have really picked up over the past few days, so we wanted to make sure nothing goes wrong and that everyone will have a happy fast […]

Auditorium Free on the iDevices!

Since the launch of Auditorium on the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad we have received a lot of feedback on the price. Luckily for you, we listen. We have talked at length with EA Mobile about what we can do for you. So, for a limited trial we are offering Auditorium on the iDevices for […]

What is going on?

So, we have been INCREDIBLY busy. Let me tell you a little about what we’ve been doing. I had the pleasure of speaking at the Flash Gaming Summit about “Monetizing Your Game Outside of Sponsorship” with Colin Northway(Fantastic Contraption), Daniel James(Three Rings), Sian Yue Tan (Rocketbirds) and Moderated by Andy Moore(Steambirds).  I think the panel […]
