Derp Studios are very proud to finally be able to release the Warhammer 40,000 – Tactical Objectives App – it’s a massive achievement. For a small indie studio to be working with one of the biggest tabletop IP’s in the world still blows my mind. 

I would personally like to thank everyone who has supported me in making this happen, family, friends, colleagues and of course Games Workshop and the Warhammer 40,000 community.

It’s been one heck of a journey, but it’s not over yet.  The post-release support and update of the app is just on the horizon.” commented Chris Ledger, CEO and Lead Designer, Derp Studios Ltd.

Tactical Objectives App – Resubmitted!

Hello again guys and girls.  At the beginning of the week I resubmitted the binary for the Warammer 40,000: Tactical Objectives App with the required licensing docs and a fix up on the “Restore Purchases” button.

I’m now once again playing the waiting game with Apple but it looks very promising that they’ll accept the build.  Stay tuned!

Update on the WH40k: Tactical Objectives App

Update on the WH40k: Tactical Objectives App

As you guys and girls recently heard, we failed our submission to the Apple app store.  We have now resolved the issues and will be submitting the app this coming weekend.

Things should go smoothly and I hope it will be the last submission.

Thank you for your patience!

London MCM Expo Oct 2015

Hey guys and girls!

I know it’s very last minute but I thought is throw it out there that myself and my artist Max will be at London MCM comic con today. Mostly as visitors but we will pop to the Games Workshop stall to show you guys the Tactical Objectives app that is due to be released!

Looking forward to the event!

I “expertly” witnessed someone playing Minecraft! :O


Recently I was lucky enough to be invited to the Official World Record attempt of the Longest Video Game Marathon On Minecraft.

The person to attempt this was a talented musician, gamer, film maker and streamer based in Cheltenham, Joe Kelly (aka: TheMajikelOne).  He set out to do the world record in the hopes of raising money for Cancer Research UK charity.

With world record attempts, there must be at least two witnesses.  They musn’t know the person attempting to break the record and are to be in full time employment.  However, in this case, I was needed as an “expert” witness along with a couple of other people such as The Sanitarium FM.

An expert witness had to be a part of the games industry in some way.  Whether it was actively in development or at the opposite end of the spectrum, games retail.

So as a fellow gamer and Cheltonian, I pledged to donate my weekend (and a little money) to support Joe.

The current world record for the longest video game marathon playing Minecraft was 24 hours and 30 minute.  Well my new found friend Joe absolutely smashed that record by playing for 35 hours 35 minutes and 35 seconds and more importantly raising £1,725.00 of the initial £300.00 target.

The event was live streamed on his YouTube channel.

There were many donations from across the world and those who came into view the World Record donated also.  It was a very special event.  It certainly inspired me to want to do something like that or at least throw myself back into the hell known as “Game Jams”.  However that’s for another day 😉

Well done Joe for smashing the world record and raising so much money.  I’m proud of you man.  Also well done Sarah for organising things and making sure things run smoothly.

And not to forget a massive well done those who witnessed, provided support, tuned in and donated money.  You all made it a super special event!

Almost there!

We have been working hard to finish up the Warhammer 40,000: Tactical Objectives app.  It’s taken us longer than expected but we’re so close to finishing.  We’ve sent it off recently to Games Workshop for their feedback!

As soon as they are happy with it, we can then push it to the app stores.  We won’t have a release date until things are clarified by the app stores and of course Games Workshop.

Thanks for being patient!
