I have written a program that will generate a 3D image file of your favorite Invader of the Day. This can be used to print our alien buddies.
A 3D printed Invader of the Day.
Is that the Donnie Darko rabbit?
Invader of the Day Pro is now up to version 1.3 and I am moving on to some new projects since I consider this the final version. If downloads really take off, I might add some extra features but for now I will let it rest a while.
My Windows 8 game is top priority but I will also port IotD to Windows 8 (with a few added features) and I am also developing for the Agent watch. It is running on the .Net Micro framework, so pretty easy to do some development. I have some “small” ideas that I would like to write. I even had to write a flood fill again… the good old days.
With all the good weather here, it is a bit hard to spend time behind my screen in the evenings. Plenty of ideas, but plenty of other activities
Oh what is this?
Tired of boring lock screens? Want something original? Love the 80s? With the 35 anniversary of the famous games comes a new app to show off your respect for the enigmatic aliens.
Invader of the Day will give you a procedurally generated lock screen that is updated a few times a day.
There are zillions of weird alien invaders all over the galaxy and some of them will invade your phone. Can you discover them all? The generated lock screen can also display the real moon phase. Handy for the werewolves amongst us.
There is also a free version available that has reduced features.
Download the app here or use the QR code.
Invader of the Day Pro is now in validation. It should be available in about a week.
Some of the new features:
- Generate an Invader based on your location. This is a so called “Pokemon” feature, because there are only a few 1000 invaders to discover on planet Earth. In the app you can see which ones you have found, and where you found them. I think I will add a feature where you can upload them to a server and see how many have been discovered on a world map.
- You can now also use you own pictures as a background for the invader fleet.
- And I added some extra features to the display screen.
- Oh yeah, of course, this version has no ads and updates your lock screen automatically every day. How cool is that?
Once the app is on the marketplace I will publish the documentation.
Then I am starting work on the Invader version for Windows 8, my new physics game and a social app I developed with some friends. Busy busy…

Invader of the Day will give you a procedurally generated lockscreen that is different every time you want.
There are zillions of weird alien invaders all over the galaxy and some of them will invade your phone.
The generated lockscreen can also display the real moon phase. Handy for the werewolves amongst us.
You can also save your creation to your phone media library and share it with other people.
When starting up the app will ask you if it can change your lock screen background. If you don’t answer yes, you will only be able to use this app to save to your media library.
The settings screen will generate your lock screen background depending on the settings you choose. Play around a bit to experiment by tapping on the preview screen. If you like what you see, you can just leave the app and that picture will be used as a background. You can also click on the save icon in the bottom app bar and save to your media library. Then you can share your strange invader with the world or use it in another app.
Have fun… and please buy the pro version (coming begin of May) to support more development.
