Randomness #7000.1

Quite a few things a-happenin, so let’s break it down…

-In case you missed it, I posted an article on the sales of the Oil Blue since it’s release a month ago. Gamasutra has made me an “Expert Blogger” which I didn’t expect at all, and I’m really grateful for the opportunity to bless the world with my array of gaming knowledge. Maybe I’ll do a synopsis on why Nocturnal Emission is a masterpiece.

-Hey, you wanna win greenTech+ right? Because you only have three more days to enter the contest! Check it out here.

-The Sandbox of God: Remastered will make it’s Gamersgate debut next month! I’m kind of surprised at how well it’s selling on my site, so I’m going to push it a bit harder than I have been before.

-Finally, I’m completely rehauling the gameplay of Liquisity 2 based on beta feedback. I put the cannon back in as well as adjusted the physics, and I only have 72 hours to do what it took me two weeks to accomplish in terms of level design (I’m scrapping all 23 levels). I love working late at night so this isn’t actually a bad thing per se. Gives me an excuse to buy delicious bottled Frappucinos.

More to come soon!

    You sure do enjoy the pressure of insane, impossible deadlines, don’t you? Man… Hey, I understand, I do similar things much too often. Well good luck! Don’t get too addicted to caffeine!

    The Sandbox of God: Remastered is really the only game I’m interested in, I imagine I’m not alone in this.

    After reading that article on Oil Blue sales, I was kinda depressed. Sucks about the Gulf spill.

    Then I remembered that Liquisity 2 is coming out really soon, and that’s going to be a bomb! I mean, what’s going to happen now? A synchronized worldwide aquarium explosion? I don’t think even that would hinder sales. Good luck!

    Everyone check your aquariums just in case.

    Will there be a level editor for L2?

    Your poor Oil Blue sales are rather shocking, but the conversion rate is phenomenal. Normally I’d say the only thing missing is marketing, but the spill may indeed be too big of a psychological barrier to entry.

    I hope the portal sales are better.

    I signed up to say how deeply sorry I am that your game has not achieved higher sales (and now realize i didn’t need to sign up :P). I am shocked to be quite honest. All I can recommend is for you to try to get better publicity for yourself among the GM community. On yoyogames it is only a matter of time before it is staff-picked. Have you submitted it to gamejolt? The site is gaining popularity and i’m sure you could squeeze a few more sales 😀

    best of luck

    A level editor for L2 might happen. I hope it will happen, I’ll put it that way. 🙂

    Thanks for all the support guys. Once I start making more games and get some traffic driving in then I think Oil Blue sales will start to pick up nicely, so I’m pretty optimistic right now. 🙂

    @makermancan Gamejolt only accepts freeware games, so I’m a bit limited in putting games on their site.
