Game Number 2
So I hope that Apple updated my 24 hour sales report quite quickly after the game went live…because, well the first day’s sales aren’t that exciting (I am assuming a day starts and ends at a specific time, and if your game goes live 1 hour before the end of that day you only get data for that one hour).
Current Downloads of free app:
So am I rich? well, current sales stand at 1 megapack ($1.30 in the bank for me!!!! the Cristal is on me tonight)
Even though I dream of grand successes and buying myself a villa on the moon, I am kind of realistic and expect my game to max out at something like 300 sales. It is game number one after all. I will post an updated sales sheet next week…but I am still desperate to see my first real 24 hours of downloads…even though I am not overly optimistic.
So….introducing Game number 2:
Here is my press release just for you blog readers:
“Hot off the heels of Springloaded’s top selling, one time purchased from the USA game Hiragana Pixel party comes “Nuclien” (potential name final name still T.B.C.)
- Are you fast tap?
- Can tap fasty fast you?
- No think period seconds fast!
- Counting skill are plenty in requirement!!
Or something like that.
Here is a really exciting video of me talking about it in my bedroom…
Unrelated to games:
This week I moved house, I moved from a palatial 3 bedroom condo all to myself, to a not quite so palatial condo that I share with two other folks. I thought I should be more careful seeing as I have no money at all coming in, and probably need every cent I have for bare essentials.
My room is the smallest, (yes for the first time since I was 16 I have a single bed – I feel like I am regressing into childhood!) and it is overflowing with my crap. I never realised quite how much shit I had accumulated over the previous 4 years…so with great pain I started giving away things on the internet, selling games to game shops and filling my garbage chute with clothes (and before you say anything, I have no idea where a clothing bank is in Singapore which is why I didn’t use one…and I do love the idea of seeing an army of homeless people wearing my Melvins and Guitar Wolf shirts…anyway back to the off-topic topic).
So yes I sold 60 or so games for around $5 each, these were distributed amongst friends and two trips to the local game store. But next came the CD’s unlike Videogames, CD’s have little to no value used (DVD’s fall in there too I think). I also didn’t want to sell my CD’s, but I realised that I simply cannot have them taking up space anymore. To many my solution is obvious and poses no real issue, but to me it’s quite the opposite. I have collected records (well mainly CD’s, but it started with records) since the age of about 10. In the UK my collection is fairly vast, and I have all kinds of crap, for example Frank Black’s “The Cult Of Ray” sits in my collection not once, but 7 times. (UK double CD Ltd Edition, UK promo CD, US single CD, US Promo, UK single CD, UK Reissue, US CDR promo). That isn’t that unusual, I have many such examples in my collection, and am quite precious about keeping the stickers on the cases, or sliding digi-packs back into the polythene wrapper that they came in after carefully playing them once. So it was with massive personal sorrow that I did the following:
My CD’s now reside in a god forsaken wallet*… think that is still only a third of my SIngapore record collection, which ,eans I still have a lot of CD’s that I need to figure out what to do with sooner rather than later…Its funny I do care, but not as much as I thought I would, there are more pressing matters around me at the moment…and this event might have finally made me start buying digital instead of boxed…which is good for the planet I guess.
* My CD’s except for The Feeling’s second album (pictured) , which went in to the garbage where it belonged.
