Welcome to the official blog of My Owl Software, creator of the excellent Apple Jack games!

Just a quick post to say that the 10 or so testers that kindly gave up their time to put Apple Jack through it's IBM compatible paces have done an excellent job, and left me with a long list of things to do before I can finally release it.

The first attempt was a bit of a non-starter, since it failed to install properly on all but one computer.

The second version ran properly for the most part but generated the aforementioned list of shame, which I shall work through over the coming weeks.

No more testing is needed now. Thanks to everyone who helped out or offered help once I already had enough helpers; names will be added to the credits menu before release and I'll send the finished games to you once I know better where they are going to end up.

Testers needed!


The PC versions of both Apple Jack games are now basically done, and they both run well on MY computer.

But PCs are a varied bunch, and I'd like to see how they work (in fact, if they work at all) on as many different computers as possible. Would you like to help test the two games? Simply seeing if they install and run would be a great help, regardless of whether you actually play them or not.

Also the keyboard and mouse controls need a good test, and I'd like to see how smooth the games are on lower spec systems.

Testers will get the full versions of both games when they are released, and also I'll put their name in the  credits section (buried right on the last page, but still).

If you're interested, please email me at the my_owl email address on the top right, and I'll get back to you.
