Tonight it finally happened, Apple approved my game that have been my plague and blessing for over a year now. Completely built with AIR and using nativeExtensions (for the physical mute button so far). I thought it could be interesting for my fellow developers to see a living example of a Flash built game on the AppStore.
Clear Vision (17+)
It will make you 0.99$ closer to living on the street but hopefully it'll bring you some joy as well;)
Take care y'all!
Looks brutal. Give us some promo codes.
2 Questions, how do you have 20 ratings in the first day? Is there some sort of marketing you are doing for the app?
Second question you says its your first app yet FDG Entertainment lists a bunch of apps on iTunes, is this some sort of group design place?
I have been the one to develop this game. As you can see in game the game has been developed by dpflashes.com and distributed by FDG Entertainment.
I am the developer, they market and distribute the game.
Yes I have recieved 20 ratings durong this first day. Some from friends and family and some from buyers I guess:)
I am unavle to provide you with promo codes atm, I will get some from FDG later!
Thats awesome, 20 reviews in one day is amazing. I have a free app that has been out for 6 months on the Amazon App Store and has over 40k downloads all to the tune of 17 reviews in that time.
Woow, that sounds incredible! But I'm keeping expectations down til I get to see the first sale report. It is afterall the first day out there and the word are just started beeing spread hopefully:)
I would love to know what you come out with on the first day in terms of downloads. I am working a shooting game at the moment and I am very curious. Good luck. I will go ahead and spring the .99 cents
I'm not really sure what you mean Colin. Do you mean that cartoon violence is inspiring kids to go shoot their classmates? That is a complete different debate that I don't think we should adress here. I am willing to discuss it with you as I strongly believe that there are a thousand other crucial factors that put those kids in that direction than simply playing a game. Especially since research prove that most humans are able to seperate fiction and reality at a very very early stage in life.
Thanks for your input.
Mark, I will keep you posted!:)
On man you are going to break your refresh button tomorow morning, hopefully apple doesn't have one of those delayed sales report days or you will lose your mind
I am excited for you, its like a game but with real money, I am obsessed with checking all the different placed I have my app on the daily and with amazon every few hours.
hahaha Colin;) Sorry for the misunderstanding.
Yeah Mark, I am going to torture the refresh button tomorrow haha. I'm pretty sure I've already lost it somewhere along the way to complete this project:)
hey!!! I bought your game, it works perfectly fine on my ipad, it is really cool! I did enjoy it, the telephone feature is so funny...
My woman has an affair with the guy who delivers pizza's Of this I'm sure, I want you to take this as*%^$& out for 1450 US Dollars, ok?
I really like the buying stuff, the wind, distance when shooting... nice one. I gave you 5 stars
Thanks for those words you all, really warming words in the cold climate I live in (middle of Sweden)! Yeah it's got a very good start with some articles and a lot of good ratings!
The debut so far is great, although I've only seen one sales report for the first day. It is climbing quite steadily on the lists but I hope as soon as the word is spreading a bit more that it could go better.
Mark, if you'd like to know more about sales and those kinds of things I think we could do it through PM instead:) Don't think I should just throw that information around.
Peace to you all!:)
thanks you guys, you're too kind:)
Things looks very good and I hope this is the beginning of building up a somewhat recognised brand/ game series.
I am currently working on an update with 10 new missions and some exciting new features. I hope to be able to send it to AppStore the 30th of April.
Stay cool guys,
The game was doing well since launch but lately it has just gone off the charts, was it the release of the free version that prompted this increased success? Are you guys advertising?
Yeah it was doing well from the start and climbed here in my country Sweden and in the publisher's country (germany) almost by itself, we've been doing some advertising. We have been active in some forums, and some articles was written about the game quite early, I've been active in media here in Sweden. But nothing came even close the success the free version brought. We carefully designed the free version and once it hit the store everything sort of booomed and both versions started climbing like mad everywhere.
Hey you all again!
Since many of you seemed interested in knowing how well the game actually has been doing it is time to release some sales number. I hope it could help motivate you in those dark lonely developing hours.
Clear Vision (17+) has got well over 1 million paid downloads. We're approaching 1.5 million downloads! It is absolutely crazy! It is sinking in rank pretty much everywhere except some smaller countries but it is still bringing in a good chunk every day. It's going to be interesting to see what the new update will do, once it goes live, to the current ranks and sales numbers.
Thank you all for your support!:)
Traffic Wonder has been downloaded around 20K (all platforms combined)... woooahhh, 1.5 million, OMG! this is absolutely insane!! I was one of the first buying your game, first time I played it I quite liked it but if I have to bet that it was going to be that successful, I have to confess I won't do it (not even today), for many reasons, first the initial impresion about concept and idea wasn't a new proposal or quite unique (which is still valid, since new ideas are very risky), but second STICKMAN has been used for decades in the market over and over and over, and over again, and third, I have found some pieces in the UI that were againts the iOS Human Interface Guidelines... anyway, this is really crazy, all I can say now is CONGRATULATIONS.
Dan congrats once again, I figured you were raking it in seeing as you were playing with the big boys like Angry Birds and Draw Something, but 1.5mil, holy crap. Nice going.
I hope the updates give new life to the app, but I am sure you will be happy even if it never sells another copy again, you did what we all dream of.
Now its time to conquer android, I feel like android users will respond greatly to this game due to its violent nature
BTW how do you find out how you are ranked in different countries?
Europe, Middle East and Africa
