Back in March I’ve been working on Brain Party for the N950/N9, and since then, I’ve uploaded it to Apps For MeeGo in May. With Apps For MeeGo being down more often recently, I thought it might be a good idea to upload it to Nokia Store, so more people can discover this nice game.
Before uploading to Nokia Store, some things have to be fixed – a big icon and screenshots have to be made/taken, single-instance launching and being a good multitasking citizen (pausing gameplay when put into background) is a precondition for QA to not fail, so these things have now been implemented.
In order to properly maintain Brain Party for the N950/N9 in the future, and to track changes, I’ve set up a Git repository in the Collaborative Harmattan Repository on Github (which gets used a lot – as of today, we have 35 repositories and 16 organization members, and you can get yourself added easily).
The Git repository of Brain Party starts off with an initial commit that is just a copy of the 0.5.91-2 source package contents from Fremantle (sans the artwork/music, which got added in a separate commit later), and then has (in a single commit) all Harmattan customizations that I did back in March, May and today. The repository content is quite big, as the images, sounds and music are all included now, but that shouldn’t stop you from cloning it and hacking the code
As written in the announcement on TMO, you can get your .deb from the downloads page or wait until it surfaces on Nokia Store as free app. As with most repositories on Github, we have an issue tracker where you can file pull requests, bugs and other things that you notice while using Brain Party
