    We have decided to keep it free for a little while longer.

    Since last week we have already had over 48,000 downloads (and ~35,000 registered users)! There are some really funny games being created, and some really cool ones too. You guys should check it out.

    We just released another update.
    This one fixes a major issue wit the arcade causing it to delete all of your games that were not yet shared.

    Also includes new features like the ability to record and share gameplay video.

    Fellows will receive a $1000 grant, all expenses paid trip to washington DC and more.

    Here is a cool endless runner game that is one of the finalists in our competition.
    It is called Boxer Moose and developed entirely on an iPad. All the graphics, music, and of course gameplay was created on the iPad with various apps.
    Sketch Club for graphics, Music Studio for music, and GamePress to put it all together and make a game of it.

    It's quite fun.

    We just released a new update a little while ago making some great changes to GamePress.
    We're starting to make GamePress more appealing to developers and be seen as a more serious tool set. The next few updates will help make this transition :)

    Here is what's new:

    New Features:
    • You can now rename behaviours
    • Levels can now be rearranged
    • You can now rename levels
    • You can now visually see which behaviour is populating an input field. Just tap+ Hold on the input field.
    • You can now track your games usage with Google Analytics. This is perfect for fine tuning your gameplay with data
    • New “Comment” behaviour to help organize your game logic
    • New “Track Event” behaviour to track events with Google Analytics
    • You can now sort the arcade by most popular today, this week, this month, and all time
    • You can now easily tell your friends about GamePress from the GamePress menu in the “My Games” screen

    Tweaks:
    • Lines connecting behaviours are slightly thicker
    • “Send to Arcade” no longer pops up every time you return to the editor from testing
    • Removed the back button from Arcade games, and games launched from “My Games” screen. You must use the pause screen to exit the game.
    • You can now like a game immediately after playing it from the Arcade
    • Arcade is now most popular not top games

    Bug Fixes:
    • GamePress will no longer crash when sharing to the Arcade from a non North American location
    • Fixed bug where collision events are not registering when using multiple levels
    • Move by behaviour didn’t let you choose the position visually by moving the anchor point
    • Move behaviours no longer teleport through physics objects when using a duration to slow it down
    • The info window now shows the correct name for games created by people who have logged in with Facebook
    • Animation timeline no longer has the activity indicator spinning forever
    • Receive message no longer crashes on world behaviours
    • Fixed the random crash caused when connecting behaviours together.

    We just released a new huge update. We actually released a few really big updates since I last posted about GamePress, but this is one of my favourite updates since releasing the app :D.
    We have added a bunch of new features to make GamePress much better and more powerful. We're preparing for our "exporting" feature so you can take your games created with GamePress and publish them to the App Store!

    This update makes importing artwork, music, and sound effects much much easier!
    Dropbox is now integrated so you can easily transfer files created on your computer right into GamePress.

    You can also use the "Open In" dialog to share files created from other apps with GamePress. So if you made an awesome track in Garageband importing it into GamePress is now a breeze.

    The complete change log can be seen on our blog: http://blog.gamepressapp.com

    As usual this update is completely free. So go download it now!
