Hi everyone! It’s time for the weekly development blog. And it’s going to be the last one of the year*.
Blown Away is out now for iOS and Android, and we are packing up our stuff for the year. Tobi and Jones are already off to see their families for Christmas, Stamm and I are leaving in the next days. Christian and Rico are also getting ready.
The first Blown Away reviews and feedback from friends and family are also trickling in, and we are very happy with what we have been hearing so far. Now, we have to cross our fingers and hope for an Apple feature on iTunes, to get maximum exposure.
We want to thank everybody, for staying tuned this year, giving us feedback, following our social media, tweeting us, sending mails, and so on and so on. We also want to thank the European Union and Creative Europe Desk, for funding our upcoming blues project. Not everything this year went as expected, but receiving funding for the project was definitely one of the nicest surprises of the year.
I also want to personally say “thank you very much!“, for reading the blog. I am very happy with how this has turned out. It started with a very “selfish” idea, since I wanted to be kept in the loop with projects I am not really involved with at most of the stages, so this blog started out as a learning opportunity for me. Being able to convey what I am learning about making games and adding my personal view, sometimes serious, mostly silly, is a great experience. Knowing that people out there are reading this, connecting with me and us through the blog, is a great honor and I have to say it again: Thank you!
That’s it for this year. Make sure to check back on the blog in 2016! If everything goes according to plan, we should be back on Sunday the 10th, after we’ve had our first meeting in Kassel.
All of us at Black Pants want to wish you a very Merry Christmas (if that’s your thing), a good start to 2016 and see you next year. It’s going to be a great year!
*I might write a proper ‘year-in-review-blog’ over the holidays, depending on how bored I get sitting around at my parents’ house, but I’m not promising anything.
