Andreas Illiger hopes to debut his second iOS game over the next few weeks.

Speaking to Flow Studio at the A MAZE Awards in Berlin last month, the German developer said he’s been focussing on the new game for some time, but isn’t ready to say what it is.

“I am finishing a new game right now so it is pretty stressful. I have been on it for the last ten months and it should be done in less then three weeks,” he said.

“It is hard, because I am still a one man band.”

Illiger said the breakout success of his first game, Tiny Wings, was somewhat problematic.

“It was really hard when Tiny Wings became such a success last year. You have no clue what success means before it happens to you,” he said.

“Suddenly the whole world went to my room and everybody wanted something: to buy me, to buy the license, sell merchandising stuff, make cinema movie. It was totally crazy. I am a quiet guy and I like my quiet life.”

The designer and programmer continues to live the same modest existence as before his sudden success, although he did buy a new computer.

“I just want to make cool games, that’s my passion,” he said.
