Both the artist and I who created it have been making games of some type or another for years, but are now in a position of "independence" if you know what I mean, so we are putting all our efforts into what little marketing resources we have.
The largest of those resources are sites like this and the promo codes that Apple offers. I'm not trying to buy anyones votes here, and in every dialog I have had with people on this board I have taken the good with the critical and appreciated the feedback as long as it has been honest and constructive.
We are currently rolling in several features that are direct feedbacks from players who have received free codes and given honest feedback. IMO, that is how the relationship is supposed to work.
