We’re finishing up now and preparing for the release of Villagers Vs. Vampire! Reggie is ready and waiting for you to help him defend his castle!
I’ve been composing screenshots, descriptions, and I’m now starting on videos. There’ll be 2 versions of the game: An ad-supported free version, and a full version for $0.99. It looks like our initial release platforms are going to be:
- iPhone & iPad (iOS 4.3 or higher)
- Amazon Kindle Fire
- Right here on our website, perceptivepumpkin.com
Other possible platforms may be the wider Android market and Kongregate, but we’ll have to see as we continue testing. My goal is to submit the game to various app stores in the next week or so, and if there are no hiccups, hopefully we’ll get it out near the end of June/beginning of July. Exciting and scary all at once!
It’s funny to me, because I’ve been writing software for almost 15 years now, and the applications I’ve created have been used by hundreds of thousands of people. And yet I’m more nervous about this release than anything I’ve done in the past decade. It really is different when the output you create is totally and completely your own, without knowing beforehand if anyone even wants what you’re writing.
But, regardless of how well the game does sales-wise, it’ll never be a failure in my view. Given all the things I’ve learned, and the knowledge that this is just the beginning of many great games we’ll produce, we can only go up from here. I’m hoping you’ll go along with us. Thanks for your support!
