World’s First Ever Prison RPG Game

No Comments

San Luis Obispo, California – Brand new game development company Kickflip Studios launches their up-and-coming flagship game Locked Up on Kickstarter. Locked Up is an action RPG that will thrust players into an unfamiliar world where corrupt guards and violent prisoners might just be the least of their worries. Framed for a crime you didn’t commit and imprisoned for life, as the player, you must find a way to escape this seemingly impenetrable arctic prison. Locked Up is currently funding on Kickstarter and is launching on Windows, macOS, Linux, XBOX Live, and Playstation Store.

Founded by CEO of Devslopes, Mark Price, Kickflip Studios aims to be the missing link in transparency and community involvement in the development of games. “We want to stay true to our roots – which is coding and game education,” said Mark. “So Kickflip Studios & Locked Up will be very transparent and open in how we build the game. Basically, we want you to learn how we did it, so you can do the same thing.”

Locked Up proposes RPG class-based prison gameplay with the ability to make choices such as how you escape or what gang you join. Locked Up also gives the player the ability to customize their own character in this mixed-race, mixed gender prison. “We really wanted to simulate what prison would be like and what you would actually need to do to escape,” said game Producer Joshua Ide. “You’ll have to craft tools. Watch guard patterns, and pay attention to all of the small things if you want to escape.”

If you prefer to get physical and win brawls instead of playing stealthily to quietly take down your enemy, you can do that. You might choose to hack computer systems and drones and have them work for you, or you might be diplomatic in your approach and talk your way in or out of various situations. We want to create a game that lets you do this.

eXcelisys releases X-RentalTracker – FileMaker Pro productivity template

No Comments

South Bend, Indiana – eXcelisys, Inc., today is proud to announce the release of the eX-RentalTracker, a productivity template utilizing the latest innovations of FileMaker Pro(R) 15. The eX-RentalTracker is for rental businesses who’ve found out-of-the-box software solutions too clunky and custom-built systems too expensive.

“After working with multiple customers constructing tailor-made rental-tracking solutions for their businesses, we decided to build a jumpstart solution for the masses,” said Doug West, eXcelisys VP for product development. “The eX-RentalTracker comes pre-built with many of the standard features our rental business clients have been requesting.” The app tracks inventory, bookings, returns, customer contacts, invoices and payments. The eX-RentalTracker can be used on a desktop PC (Mac/Windows) with certain task-based functions available on iPads.

See the eX-RentalTracker in Action Today:
Business owners interested in the eX-RentalTracker can request a FREE demo copy via the eXcelisys website. After receiving the eX-RentalTracker demo, you can tool around in the app to see how easy and intuitive it is to use. The tabbed interface makes navigation a cinch. You won’t need a tutorial to figure out how the eX-RentalTracker works. The “home” screen includes a “Quick Tasks” bar that provides rapid access to the tasks most frequently used in rental app solutions.

The eX-RentalTracker simplifies daily processes. Features include:
* Inventory availability calendar (prevents double booking)
* Kitting (allows multiple items to be packaged in a single rental kit)
* Barcodes/handheld scanners (for quick check-out/check-in)
* Instant invoicing (no more entering long strings of product numbers)
* Equipment tracking (prompts users to select the condition of returned items at check-in so broken inventory doesn’t get placed back on the shelf)

FileMaker Pro Templates Help Customers:
The eXcelisys development team built the eX-RentalTracker to save their customers time and money in the pursuit of the perfect rental inventory management system. For more than a decade, eXcelisys has been designing jumpstart FileMaker Pro template solutions, starting with the FileMaker Pro BizTracker in 2004 (for sales-driven businesses). The BizTracker evolved into a full lineup of eX-File solutions, including the eX-TruckingTracker (which tracks trips, miles and expenses) and the eX-EvalTracker (used to archive employee performance).

Recently, eXcelisys assisted Cinema Camera Rentals with a custom inventory management app. Cinema Camera used the eXcelisys BizTracker5 as a foundational template. “This approach helped me the most from a time standpoint,” said Cinema Camera rental manager Matt Stemmley. “Instead of dedicating the energy to figure out how I wanted the system to be laid out, I instead hit the ground running on envisioning functionality.”

The eX-BizTracker has been a popular and steady jumping-off point for countless eXcelisys customers requesting software development and has continued to evolve since 2004. Ever proactive, eXcelisys developers modified the tried-and-true eX-BizTracker to create the eX-RentalTracker by adding features and functionality common to and frequently requested in the rental industry.

Stemmley advises business owners to take advantage of the eX-RentalTracker. “Future customers of eXcelisys in any sort of rental capacity will ideally be able to start with the eX-RentalTracker base and add features as they see fit. Stemmley says he highly recommends the eX-RentalTracker to anyone considering a rental app based on the FileMaker Pro platform. “In my opinion, it will save them countless hours that could be dedicated to other areas of design and functionality.”

Ex-Microsoft employee builds a Construction Calculator – done right

No Comments

Cairo, Egypt – xNeat, a startup founded by an ex-Microsoft employee and his wife, today is proud to announce the release of Construction Calculator 2.2.8, an iPhone/iPad app that aims to replace your expensive Construction Calculator with a better and affordable alternative.

Ahmed Sabry, who have previously worked for Microsoft Research, noticed that most Construction Calculators at the App Store are expensive and hard to use. “The current construction calculators at the App Store are expensive and hard to use, says Ahmed Sabry, managing partner at xNeat. “Most of them are mimicking the physical calculators, they don’t make use of all the wonderful features provided by the iOS. We’ve been developing iOS Calculators since 2009 and I believe it’s time for Construction Calculators to have a facelift. A surgery we plan to make!”

Construction Calculator contains many powerful features, one of them that really differentiate it from the competition is the way it handles the entry of feet & inches measurements. It is very natural and simple as if using pencil & paper. Basically, what you see [ex: 4’9″ 3′] is what you write.

Following a tutorial or reading a book that is written in a different measurement system is not an issue anymore, as Construction Calculator allows you to mix between different measurements like meter and centimeter in the same calculation. Construction Calculator comes packed with Rafters and Stairs modules, making calculating their measures a breeze.

Feature highlights:
* Rafters and Stairs modules
* Decimal to fraction converter
* Fraction to decimal conversion
* Advanced equation editor
* Displays both the equation and the result at the same time
* Different themes to choose from
* Big buttons suitable for construction sites
* Can be added to Today Screen
* Apple Watch
* Fraction Resolution (1/2″ through 1/64″)

Users can work in and convert between all building dimensional formats: feet-inch-fractions, inch fraction, yards, decimal feet (10th, 100th), decimal inches and metric (km, m, cm, mm).

“Construction Calculator is simple to use, yet very powerful. We go through several iterations of testing and consultation with construction workers to make sure that we address their needs and expectations ” says Sarah Ragab, Managing Partner at xNeat.

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
* Requires iOS 7.0 or later
* 11.0 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Construction Calculator 2.2.8 is Free and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Utilities category. For more information, please contact Ahmed Sabry.

No Comments

Fehraltorf, Switzerland – B-Eng today is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of System Clock, the company’s new system monitor and information app developed exclusively for macOS. System Clock displays various system information as well as general data on a configurable clock surface. The Design is that of an analog clock with additional hands for CPU load, battery state and memory usage.

Additional weather information and weather forecast are embedded at the bottom of the clock face, with easily to understand icon for the current day and for 3 days in advance. All Colors and fonts are freely configurable to match any users personal taste, and the clock face can be resized and freely positioned on the desktop.

“We wanted a simple tool that shows basic information without the need for an additional click,” explains Christian Schaffner, general manager of b-eng. “Usually, when you want to know the CPU load you need to open the system monitor. To check the memory usage is an additional click. And sometimes you just want to know how long your computer is running, or when you rebooted it the last time. All this information is now collected in a freely configurable clock surface. And just in case you want to see the weather forecast we added it too. It’s just another app or link you don’t have to open, it’s all there. We wanted basic system information at a glance, and System Clock provides just that – with one or two extras that may come in handy. I am surprised, how people loved it for it’s simplicity when they tried it out, stating that they didn’t know that they missed it until they had it on their desktop.”
