Hello Touch Arcade,

My name is Eric Brill and this is Eggtastic Easter Egg Hunt. I wanted to create a light hearted, but somewhat competitive Easter game to play with friends and family over the Holiday weekend. Let me know what you think!

You can see a video of it in action here:


I was shocked to see how fast Apple accepted the game and I might be able to make the game Universal before Sunday. Would people be interested in that?

Eggtastic Easter Egg Hunt [Universal Update]

App Store Link: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/eggtastic-easter-egg-hunt/id1223565862

Hello Touch Arcade,

My name is Eric Brill and this is Eggtastic Easter Egg Hunt. So, a few weeks ago I decided to make my first holiday game. To start if you haven't created a holiday game, do it! As I was creating, I found it removed some major game development difficulties.
  1. The theme of the game is 100% solidified, clear, and unchanging.
  2. You have a definitive completion deadline that you can't put off.
  3. The game has some built in national marketing and buzz.

Number 3 was an assumption on my part going in. I thought that everyone would be going into the holiday, just eating up everything Easter related. I thought Apple would have a special Easter section for Easter games. SO far I've been very wrong about that.

While I was creating the game, I started looking at my competition on the App Store, and almost started getting cocky. Believing that my art, design, and gameplay was far superior. To my dismay now that the game is done, it looks slightly above average. Also, as the holiday gets closer and the quality seems to get better.

The name of the game is, "Eggtastic Easter Egg Hunt" if you can't tell I'm trying to get some App Store keyword love. What I've found though is many popular games, put an egg or a bunny update in there game for Easter, and they basically outrank everything. It's smart, but frustrating.

If you're interested check it out, I'd love to talk more about this topic, or get any feedback anyone has on the game.
