I wonder how many of you were looking forward to this announcement.
I’ve recently been reading ‘The Lean Startup’, by Eric Ries. It has really inspired me and empowered me to go on with the project. Not only to go on with it, but to achieve success even though my resources are limited and my direction is rather cloudy.
Some data about the game: Kipos has over 80,000 downloads and even after almost two years without a single update it still has around 300 bootups per day. And I still get wonderful reviews by people who are new to the game, or who have been playing since it was released in 2012. I’m very grateful.
Kipos’ goal is to be the best cross-platform multiplayer game. To achieve that, I’m now developing the game using cocos2dx, which deploys to iOS, Android, Windows Phone, Mac OS X, Windows Desktop and Linux.
I’m also focused now on simplifying the features to the basics, effectively reducing the feedback loop for the direction of the game. In other words, I will be able to send updates to you (the betatesters) more frequently, and thanks to your feedback and game data I will be able to find out faster what is best for the game.
So, if you are excited about seeing where Kipos is heading, I suggest you sign up for Kipos’ newsletter on the form below. I will also send a betatester invitation the week before the beta release on March 31st 2015. I will also try to post more frequently, at least once every other week.
If you have any question, doubt, or you just want to show me your excitement, leave a comment below. It really means a lot. I’m looking forward to see you soon! :)
