67% after only 4 days? I guess you're doing fine, at least you're doing far better than me Smiley

My game - Super Night Riders - is currently at 57% after... 42 days Cry

Anyway, you got my up-vote. Good luck Wink

Aw that sucks. I voted for it like..I think the day you posted it. Have you gotten any streamers or youtubers to try it out? I'm working with a couple right now, will hopefully see some results.

Sitting at 71% now, the ratio has shifted however to 52% yes to 45% no, with 620 yes votes. Traffic dropped considerably, but I'm not too worried, as it is still moving up slowly. Also trying to publish the html demo to newgrounds, but I am having VERY little luck (due to my internet connection where I work)

Thanks for the vote! No YouTubers for my game unfortunately, as I don't have a public demo right now.

I think the biggest mistake I made was to launch the campaign too early in the development. The game wasn't ready for a public exposure, yet the major traffic you get in Greenlight is from the first 3 days (around 2k pageviews). So, even though it looks much better now than day 1, I'm getting less than 10 pageviews per day currently...

So, some good news! Got the coming soon page up on Steam now.



Figured it was a good idea to get it up ASAP, get some people to add it to their wishlist + draw some more attention. Current release date is set for January 19, so we'll see how well that works out.

Thanks dude!

Game is nearing content completion, starting to see that check list get smaller and smaller  Cry  As much as I want to share a bunch of it I don't want to give away what little spoilers there are Tongue I still may show off a bit more though.

There are however some extra features I'm going to look at implementing if I have enough time before release, if not shortly after release. This includes things like challenge areas (most likely post release), a time attack mode, and a hard mode.

So, once the base game is content complete I'm also gonna start looking at getting the game in the hands of let's players / youtubers / streamers and all that goodness, after the required testing that is. If you guys know of any you'd think be interested let me know, I'd love to get into contact with them.

This is the Doom bot. You travel in it by becoming a giant fist.



To be honest though I can't think of a better method of travel.

Game is pretty much content complete, so now I'm starting to go back and polish the shit out of the game within reason.

One step was giving the first boss a bit more personality. It was originally just a crushing death machine with saws attached.



Now it's got a computerized cyclops eye to go with it. This same screen is attached to the death machine, I'll probably post that later.

Definitely getting there, polishing and balancing the game to hell and back, and added a few more things. This is one of those things:

After beating the game you get a new head unlocked called DeeJay, which changes the in level music to a dance track and makes everything a dance party:





So, I think the initial release is content complete? I have a list of planned features + additional content in the future.

I am planning out a post end game challenge / speed run mode to compliment the main game. The idea I have is that it becomes more of an old school platformer where you can no longer replay the levels once you beat them, time limits are no longer a factor, and you get a limited amount of lives.

I will also proabbly add some new heads as I go probably, don't see why not. There is also the possibility of additional levels, but that's only a maybe as I'm a bit burnt out on level design for now.

Alright, so I guess it's announcement time eh? After lots of little bug fixes, deciding which version of nw.js to use which may or may not have steam achievement capabilities, etc., final release date is February 2nd. FANFARE!

To celebrate, I did a little mock 90's game magazine ad to help announce it.



Now comes the part where I need to distribute this to a bunch of streamers, press, etc.

Since a large part of this games exposure is going to be word of mouth, if you guys know of steamers/press who you think would be interested in playing Blitz, I have a distribute set up now: https://dodistribute.com/access/QxdLI1txTI/

Also they can always email me too: [email protected]

Cheers! Have a good one everyone!

Thanks! I hope so too (but I'd settle for a minor success).

Sales have low (I guess relatively) but steady, so I'm happy with that. Just working on getting the word out with a bunch of streamers / websites, have had some good responses too. Cheers!
