A handful of shame and a release date

Sorry. SorrySorry, sorry. I have promised to keep this site more up to date with more regular postings but it did not work out. “Why?” you rightfully ask, pitchforks and torches risen high above your head, ready to eradicate this foolish game developer from planet earth.

Lost in the play store ranking

My first reason to write a post in this new and shiny blog is a bit of a sad one: as you can see from my¬†games¬†page, I am currently working on an¬†untitled Android game. Whilst creating the game, I got an¬†uneasy feeling. Creating the game itself from scratch was no problem, as I had programming […]…
