Eyez V0.7.0.4 update submitted

So I just submitted a new update of Eyez. Below is the updated app description:

—————————————————————————————-

★★★★★If you like Eyez, please consider giving it a positive rating!★★★★★

“Players who enjoy platformers, puzzles, or just want to play something different should give Eyez a look.” – Windows Phone Central

Eyez is a 2D puzzle platformer where you play as the protagonist Mint, a girl who lost her memory, to explore a mysterious lonely land. Use the Blue Eye to traverse the borders of her shattered reality, and open the Red Eye to expel the wandering nightmares. Eyez presents spatial logic in gameplay like you’ve never seen before.

Features:
– Use the Blue Eye and Red Eye abilities to explore 20+ mind-bending levels
– Change the way you think about space in game by solving tons of challenging puzzles
– Unique control schemes designed specifically for touch-screen controls
– This version includes Chapter 1 and Chapter 2 of the game. Chapter 3 will be added as a free update in the future

=Change Log=
V0.7.0.4:
Now Eyez should be working properly on 256MB-RAM devices (Thanks Mrinal!)
For those of you asking for a jump button, now you have one.(Enable in Options – Game Settings – Jump Button)

V0.7.0.3:
Improved jumping control for multi-touch control scheme
New instruction added in 1-3

V0.7.0.2:
Minor bug fixes
ESRB, PEGI, DJCTQ and CSRR rating certificates added
If you have any feedback or suggestion, please contact me via email at:
TheEyezGame@gmail.com

* If you experience any problems, please send me an email. Be sure to include your phone model and system version, and if possible describe what happened. I will try to deliver a fix ASAP. Rating this game 1-star without explaining why won’t help solve any issues. After all, I’m only one indie developer… Thanks very much for your support!!

** To 256MB-RAM devices users: V0.7.0.4 has been tested on a Nokia Lumia 610 and everything looks good. If the game still crashes on your phone, please contact me via email.

Two weeks after Eyez got released

During the past two weeks, Eyez has been well-received by players from all over the world. Here are some statistics:

– 36 out of 48 players worldwide gave Eyez positive ratings (4 & 5 stars). The other non-positive reviews consist of some complaints about the glitch in the multi-touch jumping control (which has been fixed in v0.7.0.3), a few rants about the game crashing on their devices — which I need to investigate later — and several fishy 1-star reviews which don’t make any sense to me… (some of them are empty ratings with no device info, some of them are just pure curses)

– The game has been featured in the US, China and Mexico WP Stores, as shown below:

– The game has been ranked among top 100 paid/new+rising games in most regional WP Stores. In certain regions like the US and China, it has reached within top 20 in the “new+rising” category and top 80 in the “top paid” category. Considering that I don’t have any budget for marketing, that is pretty impressive. Below is a chart from mopapp.com:

– WP Central posted an article about Eyez: http://www.wpcentral.com/eyez-gameplay-interview

P.S.: I just moved back to China and am currently in search of a new job. I’ll start working full-power on Chapter 3 after things are all set. Stay tuned for more updates!

Eyez is in closed beta, will be released in this May

My job at Tencent ended last week so I finally got some big chunks of time to work on Eyez. It now has 20+ levels in two chapters and offers much better user experience. Chapter 3 is on my schedule and will (hopefully) be released later this year.

Stay tuned for more news in the coming weeks!

The Grinns Tale officially launches on Facebook and Kongregate today!

So this is the game I was working on back at Nexon America! It is a different social game and (also) a different RPG. And most of all, it is unique and fun!
