Ayumusoft is back

We’re back!  Did you miss us?  Ayumusoft has another iPhone project going.  You know what that means: more techie, nerdy posts from yours truly.  Hopefully the other team members will post some non-nerdy news, help balance it out.

I hope you’re ready.

Version 1.31 Submitted

We submitted version 1.31 to Apple today. In version 1.31 you will find 2 new variations on medium and 6 variations on easy. We will be updating with more variations as we test them weekly. Which brings me to the sale. Now that we have submitted the new version, I estimate that version 1.31 will hit the App Store by the end of the weekend which means no more sale and hExitentialism’s price will go back up to $2.99. So if you don’t own the full version now is the time to buy it or win it.

There is one more thing to this  update, that is our logo. Though we love the logo of the boy and the Nerf Gun. Our creative director always thought that that image did not fit the game. Then came the review from Germany. I used Google translator to translate it so it reads a bit funny. But here it is proof positive that our creative director was right and my sentimental attachment to the original logo was clouding my judgment.

More than a game – more than five stars!…Finally, a few critical questions or requests:…The startup screen Ayumusoft (human figure with a gun) pointed at more games and it does not fit quite hExistentialism. This disturbs the aesthetic sense, which is such an ambitious game not to be.

Here is our new logo for hExistentialism. We will save the old logo for a shooter of some sort.

I am also happy to announce a temporary price drop in the full version to $.99. You read it right, $.99 TEMPORARILY. “How long?” You ask, well we will raise the price back up when version 1.31 gets released by Apple, and Apple does not like to tell us how long that will take. I give it at most a week. So buy it now before it goes back up to the original price of $2.99. We are doing this because the free version and version 1.3 came out this week and we would like to see as many people make the switch to the full version as possible. Remember all updates to hExistentialism will be free to those that already own the full version.

hExistentialism goes on sale today!!! hExistentialism goes on sale!!!

Twitter users can go to can visit our profile (http://twitter.com/hExistentialism) there will be a tweet about the free version. The first 20 people to retweet that tweet get a free FULL version of our game.

We Have an Announcement.

“It is not every day that you come across a truly creative and unique game”

These are the words from another review that popped up today on Gear Diary. Whoo Hoo!!!

easy

If you read deeper you will find this quote in the review. Talking about the tutorial.

“This is where the game should have started.  With easy, one or two variable combinations, giving you a chance to get used to the gamplay and ease into things.”

I would like to respond to this comment with an announcement. We are currently working on and about to release a free version and a update to hExistentialism. The Update will include easy mode with only 3 attributes at a time.

More on when these releases will go live when we submit to Apple once again.
