It’s been about 24 hours since I released Neil Rajah. According to Flurry, I’ve had about 100 new users in that time. Compare that to Bus Jumper, which crossed 1000 users in its first 8 hours, and 10,000 user in under a month. There is no way that Bus Jumper is a better game than Neil Rajah. So this, right here, is the difference between the old marketplace which had ‘Just In’, vs. the new one which does not.
This is pretty depressing, if I think about it in these terms. But, it’s just been a day, I don’t think the game is already doomed More importantly, I have 12 reviews already, and all of them are 5 stars. And not all of them are from friends That is a first for me, and feels gratifying. I’ve also received compliments from various people who have played the game.
I haven’t started the process of emailing blogs, I’ll probably do that over the weekend. I also need to update the apk to some of the 3rd party marketplaces, and if I don’t receive any crash reports by this weekend, I’ll probably start the work to build an Amazon version.
