Happy Thanksgiving!

It’s been an amazing few months for everyone in Sunnyland (and at CloudKid)! Not only did Negative Nimbus launch, but the game’s now available on all iOS devices with a new world (and another one on the way!). The overwhelmingly positive response and reviews have been truly humbling, and we are very thankful (and happy!) folks.

So, we wanted to help spread the love by making the game free from tomorrow (Thanksgiving) through Sunday. If you haven’t already downloaded the game, or you want to share the fun with some friends and family over turkey, mashed potatoes and stuffing, this is your chance! We hope you all enjoy playing with Nimbus and thank you again for your continuing support!

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us in Sunnyland!

 

Vote Nimbus!

In honor of Election Day, we wanted to share some fun promo button art we made for Nimbus. These were all Bill the Umbrella’s idea… he may not be the brightest, but he sure makes a great campaign manager!

Also, since we’re sure you’ve all been holding your breath (just like Nimbus!) for the release of the iPhone version of the app, we have some good news: the wait is almost up! Nimbus and co. will be making their way to iPhones (hopefully including yours!) this Thursday, 11/8.

It’s shaping up to be a big week! Remember to vote for real things today, and to vote Nimbus every day!

 

Nimbus’ First Party!

In honor of Nimbus’ App Store debut this Wednesday (October 17th), we decided to throw our favorite rain cloud a pre-launch party. On Friday night, CloudKid friends and family packed into our sunny studio to enjoy Nimbus cupcakes, coloring pages and, of course, the game itself. A great time was had by all. Even Nimbus himself, who hung out right outside the windows (he was worried about flooding the party if he came in), appeared to be having a good time.

Check out the photos from the shindig in Nimbus’ first Facebook album, and be sure to check back soon for the amazing art that came from our “Create Your Own Nimbus” coloring pages.

Nimbus Brings Home the Gold!

Negative Nimbus made it rain this weekend at the Boston Festival of Indie Games! Nimbus took home the “Awesome Aesthetics” award for best visuals and design of all the games exhibiting. We’re hoping Nimbus doesn’t get a big head from all the attention: he even received the most votes of any winner in each of their respective categories! Aside from the accolades, Nimbus was also overwhelmed with the flood of love from everyone who visited the table. There was a steady stream of traffic the entire day! Players of all ages seemed to really enjoy the game, and Nimbus buttons were a hot commodity at the event. Nimbus was overjoyed with the success and was also relieved that he did not rain on/ruin anyone else’s beloved games.

Check out Nimbus’ Facebook page over the next few days for more pictures from the event!

Welcome to Sunnyland!

Hello, and welcome to the world of Negative Nimbus!  If you’re reading this, that means you’ve discovered our development blog.  Huzzah!

To start, we’d like to introduce you to Nimbus: a curmudgeonly rain cloud with a heart of gold.   Players will help guide Nimbus through the various worlds of Sunnyland, raining down on all the flowers (they love it!) while trying to keep all of Sunnyland’s other inhabitants dry (they hate rain!).  Along the way, you will  unlock comics, new accessories and meet all of the friendly folks of Sunnyland.

Developed by our super creative artists and programmers at CloudKid, Negative Nimbus is a real labor of love and our first venture in to the iOS landscape.  We think things are looking great so far, and we’re so excited to share it with the world.

Be sure to check back here often for Negative Nimbus updates, sneak peeks, and an insider’s look at concept art, game development, and Nimbus’ humble beginnings.  There’s lots more to come!
