The return of Plasticine
After ~6 years since the Ludum Dare 35, we decided to re-publish Plasticine!
One of the driving factors was the incredible number of downloads of the Android version in the past years. Few tenth of thousand of people played it, and it was incredible for several reasons: the only download links were here on Itch.io and on the LD35 web-page; and the app was unpublished and in an hidden Test track on Google Play, requiring a more complex onboarding procedure than ordinary public apps.
No promos, no other referrals, nothing... Nevertheless we received many nice messages from the players, and this was amazing! Some parents even contacted us directly when Google disabled the Test track because it reached the predefined maximum number of testers. It was very satisfying, thanks.
Few years ago Google removed access to the app, since by its policy the app was using some old libraries. Finally I found some time to work again on the project, to update it to the latest version of Unreal Engine 5 (the original project was developed with UE4.11) and to create also an iOS version! I hope you'll enjoy them:
- Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.unagames.Plasticine
- iOS: https://apps.apple.com/app/plasticine/id1625576082
I really hope to provide some entertainment to new players! Nothing more :)
