Let's vote, folks

With Minigore loose out in the open, we can finally ask your opinion on stuff!

We have the radar, the third health (John Gore with the bandana), automatic saving and loading of the game and all new OpenFeint version in. Should we sit on these features until co-op and achievements are done or release the update right now so you can start enjoying it?

UPDATE: The final verdict is over 80% of you want us to submit the update now! I'm sending out copies to our testers now and submitting as it as soon as it gets cleared.

Minigore HD on PS3 or Xbox 360

If you had to choose, which platform would you like to see Minigore on?
There's a poll you can vote on at TouchArcade:

New Minigore gameplay!

The clip is from the Minigore launch version. Coming up in the first update: two-player co-op over bluetooth, a radar system to show where the furries are, the mysterious mushroom and more! Can you guess what the mushroom does?

What you say counts!

It really does. The addition of online leaderboards using OpenFeint, one more enemy type in the fast-running Firefurry and the expert mode for people who can handle the heat were among the things added into the launch version of Minigore, because you guys wanted these things! See the updated feature list.

Be sure to keep the feedback coming -- we are hard at work with the next version and we are listening!

What Minigore is...

This is what you are going to get for less than a dollar!

-One level of full 3D world rendered in the beautiful storybook style of Minigore, full with bushes, trees and props. Be sure to avoid the terrain with poor visibility… there may be a summer camp for vicious Furries in there!

-The furries come in four shapes and sizes: the small Minifurry, the Furry, the lamentable Giant Furry and the most dangerous of them, the Firefurry, a fiesty flaming furry that is able to outrun even John Gore himself. Be warned — blasting a Giant Furry will split the creature into several furries that, if destroyed will split into Minifurries. It’s Russian Nesting Dolls with a vengeance.

-Three different weapons: the trusty machine gun with unlimited ammo, a double-barreled shotgun to give you an extra boost and an exploding booby trap to catch unsuspecting furries with.

-Feeling cornered? Turn the tables by collecting enough four-leaf clovers to unleash your inner beast and become the new worst enemy for the furries by running them over to really awesome banjo music! Seriously, not kidding about the banjo! Perform clover combos to maintain the beast for as long as possible.

-Conquer the online leaderboards with your crazy scores and brag about them using the built-in chat. Minigore is fully OpenFeint Enabled.

-Play while listening to the fully orchestrated original soundtrack with a taste of Monkey Island atmosphere in there, or if you prefer to blast away to your favorite trance beat, you can access your music collection directly in the game on the iPhone OS 3.0!

-The Egoraptor, Arin Hanson, creator of the insanely popular Metal Gear Awesome and other videos in the Awesome-series, starring as the voice of John Gore is something you don't want to miss!

-Support for both left and right landscape orientations for the screen.

-Expert mode: after learning the ropes, switch on the expert mode to unleash the full fury of the furries! Very useful for people who want to focus on improving their score.

-Automatic save on exit to never lose your new highscore.

Sound good yet? For the same $0.99 you will also get a free update with co-operative multiplayer, the mysterious mushroom and, of course, our contest winner Evan Hsu appearing with really weird goggles in the first update of the game.

Light at the end of the tunnel

Been working like crazy on finishing up Minigore and now I'm starting to think there is an end to the list of issues to be fixed and features we want to get into the launch build! There's so many things we could add into the game, and we will, but right now we really want you guys to be able to play it and tell us what you think and what you want to see in the updates.

Co-op multiplayer has been voiced a number of times by a lot of different people and I personally think it couldn't be a better fit for Minigore! We have a really neat idea for it, too; in single player Minigore John Gore can take one hit which makes him lose his hat and go really angry. The second hit kills John. This how we thought co-op should go: with two players, whenever either one of the players has full health, it doesn't matter if the other one dies -- he will come back to life. But if both are down to one health, the next death ends the game for that player.

I think it makes for some really interesting gameplay. What do you think?
