Derp Studios is happy to announce that we will be attending Salute 2016 at the London Excel Centre on Saturday 16th April.

Originally we had missed the deadline to attend as a trader to the event but our friends at Nomad Games had some spare space! (Thanks guys and girls!)  So if anyone is at Salute feel free to stop by and check out the latest build of the Warhammer 40,000: Tactical Objectives App!

We will be alongside Pixel Hero Games who are showing off Eisenhorn: Xenos based off one of the best selling Black Library books and of course Nomad Games, promoting the Horus Heresy version of Talisman!

For more information about Salute 2016, check out their website here (opens in a new tab/window).

We look forward to seeing you!

We’re at Minicon 5!

WH40k: Tactical Objectives App FAQ

Warhammer 40,000: Tactical Objectives App
FAQ

 Here is a compilation of frequently asked questions by the community!

Q: How much is the app?

The core app is £4.99 which includes the regular deck and missions. As a bonus we have thrown in the Cities of Death tactical objectives AND included the missions from the Shield of Baal: Leviathan book.

 

Q: How much are the faction decks?

Each faction deck is £2.99. By purchasing the core app and the faction deck of your choice, you essentially get 3 decks for the price of one physical deck. BARGAIN!

 

Q: What platform is the app for?

Currently iOS and Android devices.

iPhone 4 – iOS 7.x and above

Android – Ice Cream Sandwich

 

Q: When are new decks added to the app?

New decks are added around two weeks after their physical counterparts have gone on sale. There maybe delays depending on complexity of the cards needing to be added. Also we are a very  small team at the moment.

 

Q: Will you be reducing the app size

Yes it is one of our top priorities. We will be reducing the app size by uploading unpurchased decks to an FTP site.

 

Q: Will there be a feature to get rid of unwanted cards and then manually replacing that card for houserules?

Yes, this will be added in a future update.

 

Q: What plans does Derp Studios have for the app?

We have many plans for the app. The core purpose remains the same, which is to provide players with copies of Tactical Objective cards, however we are looking towards making this the ultimate
companion for the WH40k tabletop game. We also want to add in a few features to make tournament players lives easier as well such as:

• Tournament session timers (tournament matches last about 2 hours each roughly)

• Card history (review what cards you scored and discarded)

• Faction based missions from the Altar of War book (included in the faction decks at no extra
cost…when we get around to it)

• Mysterious Objectives tracker. Because no matter how much you play 40k, people always have their nose in the rulebook trying to remember what each one is. This feature will generate, store and be re-viewable throughout the game session.

 

Q: Will there be a card history? A way to review cards you have achieved and discarded?

Yes, in a future update this will occur.

 

Q: Do you know what other objective cards are being released?

We don’t usually know until about a week or so before the decks launch. Or we find out in White
Dwarf like everyone else!

 

Q: Will the Psychic Power cards be included in the app?

Not at this moment in time.

 

Q: Will the app support two players?

The app will only support one player.

Two Souls launches on Gamonaut!

Our studios beloved Two Souls makes a grand appearance as a web browser game!  Thanks to our friends at Icey Monty, Two Souls is now hosted on the website www.gamonaut.com.  We would like to say a big thank you to Icey Monty for all the hard work they’ve put in to get us fully set up on Gamonaut and other gaming sites across the internet!

You can find the press release below:

Wednesday, 16th April, 2014:

Student studios studying with Train2Game have joined forces to release Two Souls on free to play 3D gaming website: Gamonaut. A Lite version of the game developed by Derp Studios is exclusively available on Icey Monty’s popular gaming website. The partnership has come together as both studios won a Swan PR Train2Game competition to gain free PR for a month.

Gamonaut developed by Icey Monty has around 1/2million plays on its site to date and its numbers are rapidly growing. Two Souls is one of Derp Studio’s many popular gaming releases, the full version of the game is now available to buy on Android and Windows Phone 8, with planned release on iOS in the near future.

Nick Walker, Director, Icey Monty, said:
“Two Souls has an original mechanic that makes it challenging and gives players a new experience. It’s perfect for the web and mobile markets. Derp has been brilliant, both in terms of getting the game ready and with the teams enthusiasm for the cooperation. We’re excited about giving Two Souls more outreach, and that ends up being mutually beneficial.”

Christopher Ledger, CEO, Derp Studios:
“With John and Nick’s experience with building web games combined with our knowledge of games, I think we can cover a lot of audiences on both PC and mobile.  We’ve made a totally exclusive version of Two Souls for Gamonaut, dedicated to players using the keyboard. The levels are unique, so when players buy the game on mobile they will have fresh new content.”
