The Rainbow Star Challenge

Attention, indie gamers!

Today is the special moment superflat games becomes a full-time, independent entity.

I’m writing on my lunchbreak at my desk in Frontier Developments Ltd, bedroom-legend David Braben’s studio where I’ve spent most of the last three years, working on Kinectimals and a new undisclosed project.  Thanks to the people who’ve helped make it a worthwhile and fascinating experience.  Although I hope not to have to return, it’s been great making the Kinectikids happy on their birthdays!

And another thing…

Today is the launch day for Soul Brother!  Yes, I almost can’t believe it either.  I particularly like this post which says ‘coming soon’, dated 2009.

Here is the titlescreen with all the achievements unlocked in the game.  What are they?  How do you get them?

You’ll have to figure that out!

Go play Soul Brother on [Adult Swim] games.

And finally: The Rainbow Star Challenge…

As per the title of the post, take a look at the final achievement above.  Want a closer look?  Ok!

– Be the first to prove to me you can earn the Rainbow Star in Soul Brother.

– Do so by sending a screen capture, or better still a video recording.

– Win a custom Soul Brother character sprite / avatar (based on you, or your pet if you like.)

– Enjoy.

    “And because I love you, I award you the rainbow star.”

    I assume I’m too late for the prize…?

    Excellent game! That Rainbow Star still eludes me but I’m having a blast trying to unlock it!

    This is an awesome game, keep it up!
    I also particularly liked the soundtrack you made for it. Any plans on releasing that as well?

    I’m still trying to get the rainbow star. But I made a video and posted about Soul Brother on my video game blog.

    Played it, loved it, shared it. I have a little blog devoted largely to indie games, so I gave you a shout-out there. I can’t wait to see what’s next.

    Heh, I’ve been saying Vertex Dispenser’s coming soon since 2009 as well.
    Playing this now.. the music is fantastic – you’ve put a lot of polish into this since the version I played at CB2 and it’s well worth it.

    What a fantastic achievement bro – I knew you could do it and I think you chose a brilliant project for your first indie game release.

    I and many others will be watching out for news of your latest projects with an eagle eye, but in the meantime once again many many congratulations on this fantastic game 😀

    Now enjoy your well earned break!!
