This is me giving an interview for YB News (they cut out most of what I said including the game and company name)
We're exhibiting at this year's EGX Rezzed which has moved to a new London venue at Tobacco Dock. We've been hard at work adding Xbox one support to Kaiju Panic with the help of Creative England and ID@XBox.
We're proud to have been nominated for a prize at this year's Tokyo Game Show by one of the largest games sites in Japan. Being a non-Japanese company means it's very difficult to break into that market so this amount of exposure will be very helpful to us. We also met with loads of different people from the games industry during the 2 business days there.
Didn't get as much time to walk around the 8 halls but the general atmosphere and quality of games was breath taking. Next up is Play Expo in Manchester. See you there!
We're 41% of the way up the Steam listings now!
We had a bit of a dip when I posted the price of the game on the steam comments.
Lesson learned, when on Greenlight don't mention the price as there is a certain demographic who vote on those things and you need as many votes as you can get.
As a bonus here's a fake radio jingle for Kaiju Panic
Thanks The Sample-ist!
P.S. that's not how you pronounce "Kaiju" 😉
So some people have been coming out that youtube are blocking adverts on videos of their games so I thought I'd also write something about my own experience.
A few weeks ago this video was rejected for monetisation:
I tried to explain to them that we made the game and that I own the development studio but they ignored that and permanently blocked adverts on that video. Funny thing is that's not even the only video I have of Chicken Walk on my channel and those other ones are fine.
Granted it's my personal youtube account and not a company branded one but it's difficult to argue with a bot. In fact the bot/3rd party had gone ahead and blocked the video even while I was in e-mail contact with youtube support.
But for the benefit of other youtubers wanting to make videos of Chicken Walk:
I, the rights owner of Chicken Walk the game, grant the right for anyone to record videos of the game and monetise those videos.
(I would appreciate a message if you do though, always love seeing other people's reactions to the game )
