Oz is now available in Oz!
Posted by Online Games Are a Niche Market [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 November 2012, 3:10 pm
Oz is now available in Oz! As March on Oz™ continues its world tour, it will shortly (within hours) be available for purchase by players in Australia, Hong Kong, Malaysia, New Zealand, and Singapore through Apple’s App Store.  We hope players in those countries will now join the march and, in the words of one […]


We are now for sale from the US to the EU to Russia in the App Store!
Posted by Online Games Are a Niche Market [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 7 November 2012, 3:40 pm
What a year+ it has been for our studio.  When we first started work on March on Oz™ a year ago, we were a collection of individuals, most of who had never worked together before. Additionally, many of those folks had no experience making games professionally. Now we are a team and one that can […]


We are now LIVE in Canada!
Posted by Online Games Are a Niche Market [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 September 2012, 2:47 pm
Wow, what a great day it is for us. Apple is selling the iPhone 5 and our first game, March on Oz™, has gone on sale in Canada! So now that we are officially “Live”, it’s time to say thank you! First, one giant “thank you” to Apple for providing a platform that allows an […]


Submitted!
Posted by Online Games Are a Niche Market [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 August 2012, 3:33 pm
As of 3:30PM, EST today, City State Entertainment has submitted its first game to the App Store for review. We are SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO happy! Congrats and thanks to all the guys and gals at CSE who made this possible. Being out of crunch also feels sooooo good.  


The week ended (is ending) very well…
Posted by Online Games Are a Niche Market [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 July 2012, 10:33 am
As CSE’s time in crunch winds down and we bid a fond farewell to long days and occasional Saturdays, take-out/delivery food and lots and lots of items in Mantis, this week is ending on some very positive notes.  Last week were able to begin talking about Formation Crafting™ (albeit in its most basic form) and at […]


A game changer?
Posted by Online Games Are a Niche Market [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 July 2012, 1:42 pm
Over the years,decades,eons (it feels that way sometimes) that I’ve been making games, I’ve always tried to come up with interesting bits that are unique to every game that I or my studio, have created. Usually these elements are evolutionary changes, sometimes, albeit more rarely, they are revolutionary (I hate the overuse of that word […]


Let’s go for a stroll – Part Two
Posted by Online Games Are a Niche Market [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 July 2012, 3:20 pm
This is the second and final part of a scenic walk-through from our upcoming game, March On Oz™.  As you can see in the video, we have weather conditions that affect the both the background scenery and foreground battle areas. The cold and snow-covered landscape getting you down? Check out the Pele’s relaxing and enjoying […]


Let’s go for a stroll…
Posted by Online Games Are a Niche Market [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 July 2012, 3:50 pm
This is the first of a two-part scenic walk-through of some of upcoming game. This is one of the many things that differentiates March On Oz™ from most, if not all of games of this type. And the best part of the engine that drives this game, besides its versatility, is how easily we could swap out […]


Friday’s Two for One Deal
Posted by Online Games Are a Niche Market [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 13 July 2012, 3:48 pm
For today’s fun, here’s a look at two very different levels from our soon to be released game, March On Oz™ .  The first level is one in which the player cannot use any projectile weapons and must find a way to stop the incoming Bomber Nomes by causing them to blow each other up.  […]


March On Oz – mini-Gameplay!
Posted by Online Games Are a Niche Market [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 12 July 2012, 5:36 pm
For today’s cheaply produced but lovingly crafted video from our studio in beautiful downtown Fairfax, we present a small sample of gameplay from some of our mini-games.  So, we are proud to present Gotta Eat Them All!, The Nome Invasion and Where Monkeys Dare.  For launch we also have Pumpkin Power, Nay Palm Training Day […]


March On Oz: First Gameplay Video
Posted by Online Games Are a Niche Market [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 11 July 2012, 5:45 pm
Here’s our first released gameplay video. It’s not a true trailer since we don’t have any non-game footage, expensive special effects, expensive VO  or other trailer-like things that took many weeks (or months) to produce and that distract (or cover up), a lack of true in-game footage. Instead, what you will see is a 100% […]


A bit slow in posting this…
Posted by Online Games Are a Niche Market [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 11 July 2012, 12:31 pm
Blame it on me having to be the biz-dev guy for the last 48 hours. We posted a FRAPS yesterday evening of our adventurer creator in action and today we’ll have another FRAPS today that will show some more in-game fun stuff like an actual battle for a change. So, it’s a daily double today! Here’s the […]


Screenshots, screenshots, screenshots!
Posted by Online Games Are a Niche Market [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 July 2012, 3:37 pm
Well, we are almost there. The bug queue is down to minor issues, the final artwork is being placed and the final touches are being placed on the levels. So, it’s time to start showing off a bit more of our game. So, here’s some in-game screenshots including the first screenshot that shows an ongoing […]


Are you feeling creative?
Posted by Online Games Are a Niche Market [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 6 July 2012, 12:51 pm
Today’s share of the day is a composite shot of our avatar creator and some examples of avatars that our folks are using while they play March on Oz™. Crunch is now winding down, even in the face of loss of power, weird building smells, July 4th and other distractions and we are looking to […]


With powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal men & women!
Posted by Online Games Are a Niche Market [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 3 July 2012, 11:24 am
Here’s a 360° look at some of our ‘all natural’ units from March On Oz™ including the Nay Palm Tree, Clock Tree, Gun Tree and Sticky Bun Tree. And since even trees can’t spring forth from  the Worlds of Oz™  fully formed, we have also found some photos from their Yearling Books and included them as well. […]


The journey of a thousand miles begins beneath your feet
Posted by Online Games Are a Niche Market [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 June 2012, 12:22 pm
As we get closer to truly beginning our journey through the Worlds of Oz, here’s the first cover of what we hope are many covers that our games receive. Courtesy of Indie Game Magazine  and our terrific team of artists, I’m proud to present the first March On Oz cover. So, mucho thanks to Chris Priestman […]


Look up into the sky! It’s a eagle, It’s a witch, It’s a Winged Monkey!
Posted by Online Games Are a Niche Market [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 27 June 2012, 2:41 pm
They may not be supermen, super-monkeys or super anything but our winged monkeys are here to help keep you safe as you travel through the Worlds of Oz. Remember the three rules though. First, they can only be called on three times during a battle. Second, hey cannot pick up large creatures. And third, never, […]


It’s truly a winter wonderland in the March On Oz!
Posted by Online Games Are a Niche Market [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 25 June 2012, 12:09 pm
Here’s another in-game screenshot from our upcoming game, March On Oz.  The setting for this chapter of the game is in a forest that RuggeDoh! the evil Nome King has covered with snow. Fortunately, some of the area’s inhabitants have found a way to keep nice and toasty. Check out the Walls of Fire are enjoying […]


More concept art
Posted by Online Games Are a Niche Market [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 June 2012, 12:42 pm
Here’s some additional concept art for March On Oz. Next week we will start sharing some in-game footage (and not just screenshots). Tasty linkage for herbivores here!


First in-game screenshot!
Posted by Online Games Are a Niche Market [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 June 2012, 11:36 am
Today’s share is a screenshot showing one of our “guides” from the game, Locasta the witch, walking down the road of yellow bricks. And other than things such as the URL, title, etc., this screenshot is completely free of Photoshop touchup (we even left the rendering errors in for keen eyes to spot). So, what […]


Pick of the day
Posted by Online Games Are a Niche Market [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 June 2012, 12:13 pm
As the countdown to release continues, we’ve added a new feature to our website, Pick of the Day. Every weekday we will unveil another piece of March On Oz.  Sometimes the reveals will be concept art, in-game screenshots, video, etc. Today, stepping up to plate as our leadoff hitter is The Royal Gardner of Oz. […]


The Great Book of Crunch opens…
Posted by Online Games Are a Niche Market [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 11 June 2012, 4:05 pm
As we continue our March On Oz, we’ll be posting regular updates about the crunchy goodness of our studio. Some will be funny, some will be factual and some may be downright weird. Check out this new section on our CSE webpage for more information (Great Book of Crunch).


The March On Oz™ Begins!
Posted by Online Games Are a Niche Market [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 29 May 2012, 2:02 pm
Folks, Finally, after 3 long years of both forced and self-imposed silence, I can begin talking about my studio’s first game, March On Oz ™.  City State Entertainment was formed in March of 2011 and early last summer we began working on the first of what we hope will be a series of games based on the […]


The secret is almost out!
Posted by Online Games Are a Niche Market [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 May 2012, 1:51 pm
