    I can't sit on this any longer. We finished our latest little game ages ago, but it's been in submission for 20 days now and we're eager to get our video out and show it off

    We're well underway with a much bigger project but took a couple of weeks out to make this.

    It's not the most original in the world (show me something on the store that is :p) and it won't blow anybodys socks off, but we like it, so here's our video!



    Hopefully you can have seaman all over your iphone soon.

    LoL, yeah I thought it might have something to do with the Dreamcast Seaman as well. That would be an awesome port, and it's def possible on an iPhone.

    Soooooo..... did that video really just say "Swallow as much seaman as possible..."? Tongue in cheek or not, that could be a reason that Apples been reviewing it so long. Personally, it's a pretty funny play on words. But Apple can be pretty wishy-washy with what they decide to allow, so who knows. As for the actual game, it's cute. It looks simple and fun, although I don't really think I'm all that crazy about the constant screaming. Will check it out though if/when it gets approved. Is there online or offline leaderboards?

    We kinda figured that if apple did have a problem with the dialogue and the ratings they would reject us sooner and we'd adjust appropriately... 20 days on and we figured they have read the first screen by now :)

    We haven't done leaderboards yet, it just saves your best score. We were going to implement that for a first update as we hadn't gone through the different services people are providing (openfeint etc) at the time rather than spend time developing our own.
    Of course that was when we were hoping for a quick turnaround with the submission so we might put it in and just resubmit...

    Hahaha, Seaman (shivers). Now, that was a pretty weird non-game game.

    The preview video looks pretty sweet. Dig that Scanner Darkly-like filter. :)

    That looks pretty damn good :eek:

    Really cool effect on your hands too, I never understood how it can make it appear handdrawn.

    For those curious on the submission schedule...
    Originally submitted 28th June (No ratings... so probably out fault)
    Mail on the 2nd July saying the review is taking longer than expected
    Pulled on the 28th July and resubmitted (same binary) with 9+ ratings
    Approved on the 11th/12th of August!

    It's been a tense 46 days :)
