Big Trouble?: Angry Birds 2 and Game of Loot both available on the 30th (My Game)

Edit: Adding App Store Links
iOS App Store
Google Play

I spent Wednesday sending out press emails for my game, Game of Loot... including one to tips@touchArcade.com. (Read: Basicly the launch date is set in stone.)

Then I wake up to find Game of Loot and Angry Birds 2 will both be launching on the 30th of this month. Obviously this worries me. Originally I pushed back the game's launch due to the press surrounding E3. Now, I will have to compete with what will be a whirl wind of Angry Bird Press. So now I am wondering if I will have a chance to get press coverage. Obviously press is essential in a games success.

What do you think? How big is the trouble?

Your going up against angry birds... I'd recommend pushing it back at least a week, though I guess it depends on how well it catches on.

There are quite a bit of really, really big games coming out on the 30th. The Crescent Moon published "Operation Dracula" comes out, I believe Race the Sun does too. I should've made a list somewhere, but I dunno...I can't imagine everyone changing their release dates because of Angry Birds 2.

Be interesting to see what angry birds 2 is like. Thought the last few freemium Rovio titles have been poor. Will this be much of the same or another huge hit ?

According to Pocket Gamer, Angry Birds 2 is actually Angry Birds Under Pigstruction that has been soft-launched for quite a while in Canada. If that's the case, it's more of the same. :/

I'm not buying anything from Cresent Moon until Exiles is fixed.

Well, if it makes a difference...this is published by Crescent Moon.

Exiles was disappointing but it was a few dollars and over the years I've had a ton of enjoyment from crescent moon games.

Looking forward to this shoot em up

If I could I would but it's too late now... The press stuff has been pushed out.
At least it isn't a clone of Angry Birds :/

Your game looks more interesting to me than any Angry Birds game, if that helps any.
