Ow My Balls the Game now on the Apple APP store!

Video or Game?

Posted by joshm On February - 22 - 2009

Step one is to figure out what the hell “Ow My Balls!” is going to actually do. My inclination is always towards finding the simplest possible thing to build. My friends would probabily tell you this is because I suck at coding. I assure you that has nothing to do with it. If someone else comes up with a simpler, faster way to build “Ow My Balls!” we’ll lose out to them in the store. We can’t have that happen again.

After hours of racking my brain the easiest thing that came to mind was a playlist of YouTube videos of people getting hit in the balls. YouTube is full of great ball shot videos, and building an app that embeds a number of them should be easy. But is that really worth 99 cents? I mean I bet that could hit #1 in Free but come on we’re playing in the real game.

So what’s the next easiest thing? Mind is blank. All I can see is a game where you kick a guy in the balls and he hits various things. Extremely complex. Never programmed a game before. Never done animation before. This would be a massive challenge. But an awesome one. We’re going to have to decide today – Video Playlist or Game?

God please save me from writing code.
