    Our first game and second Application, Stick Escape, has had some very exciting sales figures.


    Day 1: I expected to sale a 20 or so. We ended up selling 61.
    Day 2: I was thinking maybe 40 or so sales. I was SHOCKED when I had sold 123 copies!
    Day 3: Expecting about 50, but again I was surprised with 100 sales!
    Day 4 (yesterday): Finally I thought that I would guess correctly, so I guessed 60. This time, I was right, because I sold 64.


    Here is what happened in the top selling adventure game list:

    Day 1: didn't check.
    Day 2: didn't check.
    Day 3: 44 top selling adventure game! (it started at 46 and quickly went to 44)
    Day 4: 45 top selling adventure game. (Starting to drop :()
    Day 5 (today): I don't know the sales yet (will know tomorrow), but I was expecting the ranking to drop. I was surprised to see that the ranking in adventure games was all the way up to 42! It has gained, not lost ground!

    (All of these figures are from when I checked a minute ago. They are subject to change)

    I thought that this was an interesting little story, so I thought that I'd let you know.

    That is kind of suggestive of something, but oh well.

    Back on topic, 2.0 is almost done, it should be submitted within the next few days!

    I dont have this game so I will avoid making judgments on it. It seems that lovelyman does have a point however, because this game has an average of 2 stars with 20 reviews. That is pretty bad. Also, by looking at the gameplay video it appears to be a bit bland, both in the graphics and gameplay department. I know you are a young developer, which I think is great, and for a first game its not bad. The good thing about starting early is that you will always get better, and that is what I hope you do. Work on some game ideas, find a good graphics person, and make a good game. Sorry I dont have any suggestions for the game at hand. What I think you should do is get out 1 or 2 more updates and begin work on a new game that will really showcase what you can do.

    2.0 will fix most of those reviews Rocket. You don't think I'm a good graphics person? Well.......might be because my work for 1.0 was crap. Now that I played the game I was able to do some good work for 2.0.

    I agree, I am disappointed with the reviews, but we are working on a great update that will make those reviews invalid. I think the lovelyman was way out of line for saying that he hates the game (which is fine), but that is all he says. No helpful criticism, just I hate the game.


    BTW: All of the one star (that I can see) are just ratings, they didn't even take the time to write a review :(
