Thanks Dugan. Up at 50% now. Appreciate it.
I voted for it.
Thanks to you and anyone else who voted for us.
The update addresses the issue of some people having trouble with the controls and figuring out how to do stuff. It also adds another 4 levels.
Congrats on winning the Old Spice competition! You must be very chuffed about it all :D I know I would be.
Yeah it's nice, but not without issue. The money goes a good way to help fund our next project.
To be honest during the competitions mid stages we got very frustrated with the system. The people were very helpful but the system annoyed me something chronic.
- The rules of the competition changed a couple of times.
- We had to rely on the peer review system to get games ready for the finals but prior to that our game had sat in Community playtest with no-one touching it for a week.
- Some extra unofficial rules were hidden away in a non stickied page 3 forum post so at first we were allowed to release an update and then we weren't until after the competition.
- Then they decided that the voting was only going to take place in US and Canada.
Obviously it all worked out in the end for us and Microsoft are working to make sure things run smoother next time but the version in the competition was pretty much the beta in the end.
On that note. Are people managing to get their free codes ok? That's why I'm wanting to get the new version rushed to release, so people picking it up for free get the best version.
"Old Spice is giving away free game codes to the first 8,000 people who visit the Old Spice page on Xbox LIVE Marketplace."
In a couple of months we'll be able to reduce the price to 80MS points anyway but free is better than dead cheap so go grab it now if you can.
