    Damned...

    The t-shirt -guy totally forgot the shirts, so we should get the test shirt tomorrow, and the rest later tomorrow or on Wednesday. :p Next time we'll just order the shirts before the competition ends, to avoid these delays... You see I too want my iDrop Dead shirt asap! ;)

    3rd contest idea!

    :DNext time you have a competition it should be a combined competition- background, objects, and a character creation contest all in one! It would take longer to do, but it would be so awesome!

    We already have something totally different in store for the third contest, but why limit the contests to three? ;) But let's see when contest number three ends...

    But having three different categories inside one contest might be too much. It's going to be difficult to evaluate background images against ingame objects...

    Tri-color blood, and sweets

    Ok, v1.3.0 has now two special colors for Pinata, but they can be used with other characters as well. Tri-color blood (red, green and yellow), and those three types of sweets of the same colors. I still need to tweak the sweets a little, but they do look nice - and totally out of place, which is ok! :D

    PS. Oh yeah, notice the small clock at the bottom of the screen, should help you achieving those level goals in normal mode.

    T-shirt update

    Ok, we got the test t-shirt, but the image was too light. We'll make it darker for the printing machine, and get those shirts printed tomorrow. :) Almost there...

    I will take the light one, haha. By the way, my friends are impressed with the app and they have iPods too. Expect two more customers soon. :)

    I'm pretty sure that if you keep on participating the contests you'll get one iDrop Dead t-shirt, one that's of good quality. ;)

    But awesome! Perhaps we'll make our new record and sell more than 10 units in day! :D

    I really hope that's exaggerating, you deserve way more than that. Maybe after the next update is up I'll write a nice long user review on here and see if I can convince some more people.

    It's sad, but (almost) true. On the best day so far iDrop Dead sold 16 units in the States, and total global sales for that day was something like 25. Yesterday wasn't that great... It's our biggest game so far, but working 1/50th of the development time at a local McDonalds would have been more profitable.

    Thanks, that would be great! :) We can only hope that future updates and reviews will increase the sales... If not, I'll start just watching tv instead.

    What?

    I'll write up a great review on my site and on here! Oh, and to MidianGTX, stop hatin! My drawings were awesome- especially for having to do it on paint, and aren't you the guy with that wack zebra? One word- photoshop! Don't criticize my drawings when you draw that zebra thing! Your pinata may have been good, but that doesn't give you the right to criticize other people's drawings! You've___ been___served. Peace out homie.

    Oh yeah, the t-shirts have gone into print, so we can mail them later this week. ;) Let's see if we can make enough money from the sales of the game to cover the expenses...
