I have no idea how you (and other developers) work on apps so much, in addition to your regular jobs and families. I'm in school and work and have a family so I get being busy, but it's really awesome how much effort you (and I'm also thinking of Toonuva Games who are making The Wild) put into a "side project" like this. I guess it's similar to any other hobby, that if you love it you make time for it. Anyway, all that to say that I really appreciate it and I can't tell you how pumped my wife and I were (she even talked to her family about it) when I told her my name may be in this football iphone game. I have always been a Dallas fan, being from Dallas. My wife and her family are from Houston, so that is something we have had to work through
Now, I find myself routing for the Texans a lot because I have been able to go to the games occasionally and get to know the players. So, it's cool to see the love of football (particularly, your game) really connect people.
Side note: This is an actual conversation my wife and I had a few months ago. Me being a Dallas fan, she being a Texans fan.
Me: I think it's okay for us to cheer for each others' teams when they are on.
Wife: Yeah, except when they are playing each other. Like, I will cheer for Dallas, except when they are playing Houston. I have to go for Houston.
Me: Totally, and I will cheer for Houston, except when they are playing Dallas.
Wife: YOU WOULD CHEER AGAINST HOUSTON?! (yes, she actually spoke in all caps)
Oh marriage...I have another question or two, which I hope won't distract you from this productive weekend. In multiplayer, is the player (me) able to have multiple multiplayer games open at one time? And if so, will it be asynchronous? Also, I wonder if we could organize on here some kind of Touch Arcade Playoffs down the road? Similar to what Pocket Tactics does fairly often for different games. We could have a bracket, or multiple, pair people up to play each other, and then they can report back with who one. May be fun to keep up with, even if I will get knocked out early
Okay, last question for now, Casual Mode and Season Mode will be there at launch? At least if Career Mode isn't, it would be fun and keep me occupied on improving my team throughout a year until Career comes out. Thanks again!
