Garden of War has had an amazing run on Kongregate! This week it passed the 100,000 hits mark, an amazing milestone. While the financial end has been far from successful, the popularity of the game is a huge releif. There have been many calls for a sequal, and many good ideas for enhancements.

Game News MindJolt Accepts Orbital Bombardment!
Posted by Warstrider on Friday, May 27 @ 13:23:35 CDT (16882 reads)

I am pleased to announce that MindJolt.com has accepted my Orbital Bombardment submission! On September 10th they will be releasing it through all of their media outlets.

I don't have any experiance with MindJolt, but they boast a pretty impressive buisness plan. On the surface they look like any other game portal (Kongregate, New Grounds...) in that they host flash games and give the developer 50% of the ad revenue. However they have a tight submission process that only accepts 1-2 games a day. If you look at how many flash games are actually released on the internet each day that is a very tight submission process. The thing that makes them unique is that they actively market the games instead of just throwing them out there. They limit their releases (hence the Sept 10th date) to make sure games get proper attention, and make full use of social media like Facebook and Twitter to give them a wide audiance.

You have to take allot on faith with MindJolt, when you submit your game you are giving it to them with no strings attached. No domain locks, no ads of your own, and you can't publish it anywhere else. That said the internet forums are full of some pretty amazing stories, and some pretty bad debocles. Allot of faith is required to toss them 6 months of development. Cross your fingers (and leave them crossed, i've got over 3 months to wait)!

After much work and help from friends I have finished debugging "Lunar Shield", and decided that it needed a new name. Thanks to everyone for helping me choose "Orbital Bombardment". Below is the new promo picture I am using!

CR News Garden of War offered! Sorta...
Posted by Warstrider on Monday, March 08 @ 19:14:42 CST (8342 reads)

It is time to both celebrate and cry. I got an offer to buy Garden of War today! Amazing you say, but the down side is it includes an exclusive 7 day posting on the offering vendor's site. The story goes that three months ago when I posted GOW on Kongregate, I neglected to update my game bid on the site. So the person that made the offer didn't know I had already broken the exclusive part of the contract. So in other words... the deal is off before its on. Still, it is a nice feeling!!
