How does TA know what games are coming out on Thursdays?

Hi, I am working on a game, Lowlander, sort of a tribute to old-school Ultima:

http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=249818

I've submitted it to the App Store. Now I'm wondering, once it's approved, if I might be able to get it listed among the games here in that weekly Wednesday post. Does anyone know what I need to do? Set the game to release on Thursday I guess, and then what? Send a 'tip' email to TA?

I've tried asking this question twice before and haven't gotten an answer.

Thanks for any info!

Bob

Post a forum thread when the game hits the New Zealand App Store, which is usually around 7:00 AM Eastern.

Hello,

I do not know how to check the New Zealand store, but my game Lowlander was set to release on December 25. Does that mean it's already out there?

Thanks
Bob

Releasing an iOS game on Christmas is a spectacularly bad idea.

Totally agree. Wish low lander would come out earlier. Releasing on Xmas day isn't good !
