Snapshot has been nominated for the Most Anticipated Indie Game of 2012! Have a minute? Cast your vote!
Then if you have another minute, you should check out the other nominated games! There are some really amazing (and nearly as anticipated) games on there.
That's right! In a few short days, Retro Affect is off to Vegas to partake in the newest conference on the "block" (get it?).
Though MineCon is centered around the beloved game, Minecraft, they'll be showing some indie love with several presentations and demo stations on the show floor. Come catch us at 9:30PM on Friday in the Indie Theater! We have some special, never-before-seen content for Snapshot that we're excited to show off. See you there!
Behold! Our second Snap-a-shot contest. In honor of E3, this theme is all about video games. Snap a picture of your favorite video game(s) and post it to Facebook, Twitter or RetroAffect.com to enter.
- The first 15 people to upload a photo of their favorite game(s) receive a Snapshot Concept Art Card and an automatic entry into our raffles.
- The top 5 most creative/hilarious/awesome photos uploaded before 11:59 EST on Sunday, June 20, 2010 also receive a Snapshot Concept Art Card and an automatic entry into our raffles! Look at who won our outdoor-themed Snap-a-shot.
Remember that these art cards are also automatic entries into future raffles with larger prizes. The more you get, the more chances you have to win!
It's time to reveal the new Snapshot postcard! This one goes out to all of our Retro Affect birthday extravaganza winners. This big reveal isn't coming to you in the form of a mere .jpg though, it's a time lapse of the entire process. Beginning to end, all captured on the left monitor of yours truly. Check it out (in HD!)!
The entire thing took about 4 hours from start to finish. I started by drawing a tiny thumbnail of what I wanted to do on an index card, so I didn't go into it completely blind. I also had some failed concepts in the .psd that I didn't go with from the day before. Also, if you watch closely you can see a couple frames where I got distracted by a Starcraft 2 commentary video. (Also I hate you, Adobe Premiere Pro CS4, and I hope you get your lunchbox stolen at school tomorrow.)
These postcards will be heading out the door pretty soon, and hopefully there will be more chances in the future for you guys to get a hold of some. If you have any feedback on the card or the video, lemme know in the comments!
The numbers are in. We tallied the tweets, listed the likes and cataloged the comments (I had fun with that). It's unfortunate that we only have 15 cards to hand out...thankfully, it was an April Fools Joke, HAH. Everyone wins! Got you good didn't we?
Seriously, everyone wins. For each one of the three options you entered yesterday, you'll get an Art Card. Our contests are easy aren't they? We just wanted to share as much Snapshot love with our biggest supporters as we could. Your well-wishes help us out daily, and we can't wait to deliver to you the best possible game we can.
So here's to another year with more games, more giveaways and more...gusto? Sure.
Today marks Retro Affect's our year anniversary and to celebrate, we're giving things away!
Anyone who comments on this post, retweets our birthday tweet, or 'likes' our birthday Facebook post is entered to win one of 15 brand new Snapshot Art Cards.That's up to three entries per person! Keep in mind, this never-before-seen Art Card is also a raffle ticket to bigger prizes down the road. So the more you get, the better.
Contest ends at 11:59PM PST tonight.
one year ago! (not the art card)
I can't believe it's been a year. The amount of support we've received from everyone is incredible and we're even more excited to develop Snapshot than ever before. Make sure you check out our new screenshot and come back often for more screenshots and even some videos down the road. Just think of what will happen by our next birthday...
Wow! Our first contest easily surpassed our expectations. We received pictures from all over the world! Alas, only the first 15 people are lucky enough to receive a Snapshot Art Card. We saw some amazing photos, you should probably check out our Facebook Fan Page to take a gander. Two of all the submissions were clever enough to receive the creative/hilarious/awesome photo award...which we need a better name for...
Our two most creative/hilarious/awesome Art Cards go to Rick and Dan!
Their use of our game's title and the RetroAffect.com homepage put a smile on our faces and a warm fuzzy feeling in our hearts...
If you missed out on this contest, fear not! We had a lot of fun with this one and certainly have more planned for the future. So keep an eye on your feeds and on RetroAffect.com for more chances to win!
