I can only say that its long long time this time more than every time before :S.
But really it was out of my hands as in my country every person have brothers must go to serve the military for at least one year which something sucks :S so I was busy in finishing some papers + I was trying to work hard on my new Collab Project With Alexitron trying to finish it before going to serve in the military, besides I was some how depressed because I dont want to go serving I just wanna make games :) and Hang with you guys even on the blog here (which is virtual hanging).
First lets talk about my projects :) before talking about indie game world.
First thing about Mountainer :) the new graphics made by Tomas Barrios is nearly finished and it looks stunning.
Here are some screenshots in the new version compared to the old version and tell me what do u think(press on the picture to enlarge it)
Second thing I will talk more about my Collab Game its................
Take a guess, Its a nice game made by Alexitron. No one hate this game all people love it, and its talking about treasure hunter ...... Do u know it? its easy ..... very famous and nice and amazing ....
Your Right its a port for The Power game :) YaaaaaaaaaaaaY and its not exactly the same game, some parts of the game have been redesigned and altered to be more amazing to play now around 70% of the game is finished.
By the way I am the programmer for the game, Alexitron is the Graphic and Game Designer for this amazing game, Brother Android and Pgil are the musician for the game :) Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaay its amazing group I work with :) isn't it????
Here are some pictures of the game ... and soon I will make a sponsor video and gameplay video :) for the game.
The game is tested by the help of Poppenkast community and it gets nice and amazing feedback here are they:
- Andy: hey yeah, i've heard of Amidos. He's cool and he's really active in the indie world and just overall has a good presence. good luck on the project, guys!

- Stampede: Super! The Power was really good game. You gonna get lots of players with this!
- Pgil: Sounds like things are going nice. I loved the Power...
- DeadHeat: The power was great fun, hopefully this one goes just as well
- Br.Android: The Power is awesome by the way.

- Alexitron: Awesome ! Amidos is so cool to work with
