Stats from this blog

By: Conor 10. April 2012 13:41

Just for GLOLz I thought it'd be interesting to see which posts generated the most views on this here blog. I only did February and March because we hadn't actually posted anything before that since November (bad bad, naughty Redwinners).


One thing to note is that the values on the axes change a fair amount between the two graphs. So really we got way more visits in Feb-March, particularly when we did the 3 posts at once.


But interestingly the visitors in March-April hung around a lot longer, particularly in the days after the Push-It post.

The Irish Times

Redwind Irish Times

Yes, the rumors were true! Ireland's most prestigious newspaper has run an article today about your lovable cuddly buddies at Redwind.

Some choice quotes…

  • It was a case of first up, best dressed for mobile app and gaming company Redwind Software
  • “You can’t make money in the Android market at all” says Winders
  • But how did it feel to concede a 10 per cent stake? “While the company is doing okay at the same time you’re kind of giving away 10 per cent of nothing unless you do well, so it’s in everybody’s interests to do well.”
  • “It was validation for us that our games were as good as we thought they were”

Or just go read the full story here!

Kinect Tennis, after hours at Redwind

Two weeks in a row, does this make it a tradition?

Not sure what's the best part, my dancing, Nibbles' dancing, my avatar's dancing or Nibbles' avatar's dancing?

You be the judge

Do you want to play games on your Apple TV?



Of course you do. Well the good news is your friends at Redwind are only dying to make that a reality for you. And no this doesn't require any "jail-breaking" or hacking or other messing around with your Apple TV, this is straight up, honest to goodness out of the box, big screen iOS gaming.


Ah, push it

A JobBridge position and our position on JobBridge

By: Conor 26. February 2012 19:30

For information about what JobBridge is, take a look at the official website.

The basic idea is that companies can take on interns via the scheme at no cost to the company. The intern must be somebody who is currently claiming social welfare entitlements. In addition to their welfare payments the intern receives an extra €50 per week. This €50 is paid by the JobBridge scheme, not the company.

OMG, you bastards! 
You should be ashamed.
This can't be serious.
Blah blah…
Exploitation. Unpaid. Disagraceful.
JobBridge is the devil and you are a devil worshiper.



Space Brains is Best Gaming App

By: Conor 5. November 2011 13:18


This post is a day late but in our defense we were very very hungover yesterday. Hungover from celebrating, because for the 2nd year running Redwind has scooped the Best Gaming App award at the Irish Appys, keeping up our 100% record in the category.

Happy Hallowe'en

Horror Poster Hitchcock Poster Vampire Poster

So it's the 31st of October and all around the world people are dressing up in funny, silly and scary costumes to go get drunk and/or pester their neighbors for sweets and tasty treats in exchange for not throwing eggs at their house.

If you are in Dublin, be sure to drop by the Redwind Software HQ for all sorts of goodies that we have got in just for the occasion. However, as we realize the vast majority of you are not in Dublin we figured we would give you some even more delightful downloadable delicacies.

We've worked extra hard in the last few weeks to get some new apps out for you guys just for this occasion. They are Horror Movie Challenge, Vampire Challenge & Hitchcock Challenge. Each one is packed full of great questions and just oozing blood, guts and trivia.

Priced at a meagre $0.99 you'd have to be crazy not to buy at least one of these terrifying yet truly satisfying apps!

Tools Of The Trade

Yesterday I tweeted a total of 12 tweets (excluding retweets). One of them was this

  • Xcode
  • BetaBuilder
  • Base
  • Navicat for SQL Server
  • Pixelmator
  • Versions
  • Transmit
  • TextWrangler (reluctantly)
That's how I get shit done.

Followed up a few minutes later by

  • Twitter
That's how I don't get shit done.

So, as I sit down this morning to work on Project Kraven The Hunter and find myself considering all the other things I could do instead this subject seems like it is probably worth a blog post. The hardware and software that I use the most in terms of my working life.

WARNING: This is extremely long (That's what she said) and there are no pictures.
