As 2016 ends, we would like to reflect on everything we have accomplished over the last 12 months and also to thank all of the players and fans of our games. This year has been especially busy with 4 new games launched and major updates to existing games.
We started this 2016 with the release of Dinosaur Sim featuring 12 playable dinosaurs, the game was received very well and is the highest rated game in my portfolio (4+ stars). Throughout 2016 we added 8 more Dinosaurs including:
We also added 2 new scenes to Dinosaur Sim including a Large Tropical Scene and a Desert Scene. Dinosaur Sim turned out to be a great success for 3583 Bytes and we would like to thank all the players that have stuck with the game over the last 11 months.
Train Sim is definitely one of our most popular games and has a great fan base that provides constant suggestions on improvements. This year’s Train Sim updates included a new Indian Scene as well as complete refreshes of the Farm Land & Desert Scenes. There were many new trains including:
- Acela Express
- Southern Pacific 4449
- Class 91
- Bombardier Talent
If that was not enough Train Sim also got new improved Sounds for each Engine, The very requested Double Engines & Improved Steam/Smoke effects, as well as a new Train Chooser Scene and Controller Support. Can’t round up the year without also mentioning the awesome Train Sim inspired art by Steve Conway.
3 Jewels is also a very popular game that reached a major milestone of over 4 million downloads. This year I added a new Challenge Mode with 50 new challenge levels as well as a slide to move feature.
Flight Sim also reached a major milestone of over 1 million downloads. During the year, we spent allot of time adding a new airplanes including:
- Pitts S1
- Fokker F27
The goal of having 20 airplanes in Flight Sim has now been reached (just 1 day prior to end of year). Flight Sim also got a new cloud system as well as a HUD display mode.
