We would be greatly appreciative if you would consider announcing, reviewing, or promoting our game in any way on your site/blog/twitter feed/whatever.

To this end, you can get a press packet here

This packet contains screenshots, a game description, a company bio, the game’s icon, and holder terms we are required to distribute with game promo codes; all of these can be used however you feel is appropriate.

Word Duelist is Awaiting Review!

Word Duelist has been uploaded to iTunes Connect and is now awaiting review for sale on the App Store. Based on See the Light’s review speed, I expect a little over a week to hear the results.

Will keep you posted, of course.

A Humble List of Grievances

From the top:

(1) The American version of Skins is vastly butchered compared to the British version. The pilot was nearly a shot for shot remake with inferior actors and less character.

(2) This stupid memory crash has kept Word Duelist from shipping for the last 2-3 days. It is not helping that XCode crashes every half hour or so.

(3) Going to the gym is *hard*. I don’t know how pretty people do it.

That’s all. A short post. I just wanted to jump-start the blog again after a month’s hiatus.

15 achievements? Surely you are not serious.
