I just put up a little sneak peak about Snowball Touch up on YouTube. Kinda weird putting it out there as I’ve been working on it for almost a year. That sounds more impressive than it is, though.
I had a short period in the Summer when Apple had just announced it’s iPhone App Store plans that development was going at lightning speed. I had a low class load and my brother Brian doing some supporting code work. We wanted to hit the App Store opening day but we couldn’t quite squeeze that in. Then, Brian got a responsible programming job and started his career — he had just graduated from college.
Since then I have had some good fortune at work which has meant less time to work on the game. The short story is my time to work on the game has been reduced to roughly one day a week. That slowed things down to a crawl. I remember saying I had about two weeks more work to go at least six months ago.
The other challenge through this whole project has been the shifting iPhone App Store market. It’s been fascinating to follow but difficult to target. That’s a discussion for another day.
For now, I’ll be VERY interested in response to my little teaser video. So, if anyone lands here from the video, please comment.
Here it is, btw:
