Congrats to Jason Fieldman (Theseus)

Congrats to Jason, author of Theseus.

His app is now #42 in the Top 100. He was previously one of the un-success stories in the App Store. Now he will be viewed with scorn and jealously by his fellow devs.

App: Theseus

I like to attribute his success to our feature of his app on the front page, though Apple's featuring of it probably didn't hurt either. (coincidence? I think not... )

Way to go! Love the underdog stories! The iPhone market is defiantly a hard one, to say the least. More power to the indie Dev's!

Thanks all

This has all been a bit sudden so I'm still collecting my thoughts. I plan on writing up a complete history of the Theseus app since its inception.. but I want to see how this ranking thing plays out first.

I really appreciate this forum btw. All of the improvements to the game have been more or less a direct result of the feedback I've received here

Theseus is by far one of my favorite "Puzzle" games, mainly because it is a clean looking and fun game... Congrats to the Dev I hope it goes higher!

I bought it after I tried the free lite version. Great game! It's one of the three or four games I play regularly. I just wish I was better at it...
