It's been one year now! Thank you!
(wow, that's one big picture)
I was reminded a couple of days ago when our games were nominated in this that it's been almost a year now that the App Store has been open.
One year. Time really flies when you are having fun.
We wouldn't have been able to stay alive as this long if it hadn't been for you guys, i.e. the fans, the critics and the competitors (more on this later). I hope we can continue to innovate and to entertain you for many years to come. We love games, we love coding, and we sure do love to polish. We are just four friends doing what we love and we hope it shows.
That also means we've been in business almost a year now, and I thought I'd just say thank you to all of you here at Touch Arcade that you let me have my dream job. I honestly can't come up with other jobs that are better (ok ok, it would be cool to be a rock star, I'll admit that).
I also want to say thank you to all the other indie devs. Everyone are just so nice and friendly! I had the pleasure to meet many at WWDC this year, some at other conventions, some I've spoken to on the phone, and many of you have I've emailed with. Even though we are competitors, we are all friends.
Also thanks for the many games I play and enjoy on a daily basis. Some of my personal favorites are geoDefense, Zen Bound, Drop7, Airport Mania, Azkend, Defender Chronicles, DrawRace, Real Racing, Pinball Dreams, Strategery and many many others, there are just too many to list here.
Last, but not least, I want to thank TA for this great site and the wonderful forum. You have a nice mix of big and small games, and you managed to get a lot of devs to the forum, too!
I hope we'll be around next year!
... all of the Illusion Labs games are nominated:
If you like our games, we'd appreciate your support!
With that said, there are many many great games abundant on that list. Please support the other indies that are nominated, I'm sure they'd appreciate the vote too.
On another note, what do you expect or hope to see in the next 12 months?
All the best,
(and Andreas, Marcus and Carl too. They are all on vacation and it's just me in the office, which in practice means I can listen to my fav radio station and make the coffee the way I like it, and also work without pants!!)
