Zero Fun?

Hey TA'ers

DEADJAM here. Following the complete and utter disaster of my first game, MAYHEM!, released over 2 years ago I've decided it's time to release my 2nd title - Zero Fun [Number Tapping Action]

I'm hoping to get more than 10 downloads. With a price tag of FREE this will probably help.

Here's a teaser trailer and I mean that in the true sense.

My journey hasn't been completely unsuccessful. I Produced a tasty, pixel art, arcade game called Thumb Space which was featured by Apple in May 2016 and I have also had 2 Sticker Packs featured by Apple this year. So I've made $50 so far which is nice. Although, 3 years of an Apple dev licence has made that a BIG loss But I'm still smiling.

I'll post a bit more about the game over the next week.

Over and out.

Well here's the home screen design.

Did I tell you it has a minimal design and colour palette and lots of numbers counting down?

Howdy to those who are reading!

ZERO FUN is delayed a few weeks and will release at the end of September or early October. There was a little bug which need squashing and life got in the way like it usually does.

Stay frosty!

Wow! A month has passed in the blink of an eye. I missed my original launch date of September and just when I was about to go live Apple rejected the game.

I spent a week taking it personally when all it was a fairly straightforward rejection on one of the two IAPs. Thanks to Korigame of Balance The Hat fame for getting me through the dark times

Enough of this sentimental crap. What's happening I hear 3 of you cry?

Well this: 01110100 01110010 01100001 01101001 01101100 01100101 01110010 00100000 01101001 01101110 01100011 01101111 01101101 01101001 01101110 01100111

Stay tuned.
