Artist Spotlight – Jason Acebron

I would like to introduce Jason Acebron, author of StoneVsCaveman, an addictive game, entirely made with Kwik and already showcased here. Kwiksher’s questions are in bold, to facilitate the reading. Feel free to send more questions to Jason via comments below. I am sure he will appreciate. Enjoy! Tell us a little bit about you. Where are you based, for how long are you creating games – in sum, what is your “story”? I am based in California. Creating games has always been on my mind. Just never had the time to learn the development side of it. Ever since Kwik was born and stated no developer knowledge was needed. Well that saying…

Adobe Photoshop CC 2014 Launch

Copyright: Adobe Adobe Creative Cloud 2014 Announcement Adobe just announced their Creative Cloud update (called CC 2014), which includes lots of new features in all product lines, including Photoshop. Although people, myself included, will be very excited with the new gizmos, one thing was left behind in the announcement (or at least was barely touched): ALL Photoshop plugins for CS5, CS6 and CC will NOT be compatible with the new product. Adobe decided to remove all Flash integration (plugin panels were written in ActionScript) in exchange of new HTML/CSS/Javascript made ones. This means that vendors like Kwiksher will be required to write different versions of their products for each product….

Introducing the Asset Store

Do you have a nice song track or sprite sheet asset that could help others? Maybe you developed a nice external code that some Kwik users would love to have as well? Introducing the new Asset Store! Now you can sell your own creations and get some money back from your development time! Check the video above to learn how to become a vendor and sell your assets. You will get 70% of the price you set, while Kwiksher gets 30% to cover the processing fees. The idea behind the Asset Store is to help creators to make some money (besides the app sales and/or advertisements) but also help consumers to…

Introducing Kwik 3.2

Kwik 3.2 is here! Today I would like to introduce Kwik 3.2. This update brings some nice additions including: an easy way to create infinity scrolling (you can use it for backgrounds or any king of layers), as I have shown few weeks ago in this tutorial; a new message system integrated in the plugin that will allow Kwiksher to send you special promotions and announcements. As many people asks for a way to “never leave Photoshop”, this is one of our answers 🙂 an integrated way to renew subscriptions from inside the tool; Particle Replacement, a new option that allows you to import particles created by Particle Designer 2 into…

Preparing for the future

I would like to provide a quick update on what is happening here at Kwiksher. Website: As you may have noticed, my main focus (especially now that Kwik 3 is pretty stable) in May was (and still is) to fix the issues with the newest website. It is really nice visually but performance is still far from what I expect. I have changed the hosting provider and I will do it again today because the performance is still not acceptable. I am sorry for this inconvenience but, without this important infrastructure milestone, I will not be able to bring some really important news in the next days. Kwik: Due the issues…

Kwiksher’s New Shop Experience

After much work and sweat, the new website is finished, including a totally new shop experience, which includes access to your past orders as well. See the presentation video below and learn what is new: Are you having problems with the new site? For some users the new site sometimes cannot load pages or returns a php error. I am working with our provider to handle it as soon as possible. Meanwhile, just refresh the empty/error page and the right page will load fine. Sorry for this inconvenience. Did you like it?

Corona Composer GUI: do you need it? Check thoughts and the tutorial

Last week Corona Labs announced their new tool, yet in a beta stage, called Composer GUI (graphics user interface), which is pretty cool, by the way. If you haven’t seen it, check their blog. Minutes later, I received an email from a Kwik user asking about how it would change Kwik’s positioning for the future. You can read about my entire thoughts below but, in a few words, I would like to say that Composer GUI targets a different audience than Kwik. To clarify that, I decided to make a homage to Corona Labs, reproducing their demo in Kwik. See and take your own conclusions: A Threat Or An Opportunity? First of…
