TIGforums used to do these comic collabs few years ago, a comic where each user draws a page based on previous page only. I participated into this crazy nonsensical mess and made my own page, I recently re-discovered it and wanted to share =)
My page’s is nr 3 ( xerios )
Well, here’s a full free version for windows mobile ( it’s a private release so you can’t find it in the store, but hey readers get it first )
Have fun, hope this makes up for the lack of recent updates =)

As you can notice on this fancy graph, the moment when I stopped marketing ( aka paying those greedy review websites ) was the moment my game started loosing interest.
The fancy red line I drew, that was the day I stopped banging my head on the walls hoping to gain more popularity. Who would’ve thought marketing is a full time job? Heh, I didn’t ! ( well maybe a bit )
One of the biggest issues for my launch was forgetting to setup at least a minimal anti-pirating measures, and before I even realized that android was a sea of booty-hunters, my full game was already mirrored on thousands of sites. This made my heart cry :’(
(Current amount of mirrors, glad to see pirating community being so active )
That graph above is only for the free version and the one for people who actually bought the game is way too embarrassing to be shown anywhere at all. And unfortunately, when I said my game was doing great, that was just the first good weeks, but now it’s currently going nowhere.
Currently at this moment, I’m working on putting the game simultaneously on Windows Phone and iPhone through some friend’s company. Hopefully they’re gonna help me out with marketing as well because I’m not really good at that, considering that I lost more than I gained due to those expensive reviews.
Moved out to another place and all I have now is my shitty mobile connection. And when I say shitty, I mean that I’m on EDGE, which is almost like torture.
I’ll post an update on how ROTE is doing ( because it’s surprisingly doing quite well ) once I get my internet back ( hopefully in a week or sooner ).
Also, windows phone version delayed because of the same reasons, godamnit.

I’m still working on the windows ( and windows phone ) version, so it’ll be also out soon !
After a week of guessing my password for my 2 year old twitter account, I finally managed to get it back.
@RageFX ( Click it, don’t be afraid )
As for the puzzle game, I still have to do one of the biggest and hardest things any game developer has to go through : MARKETING.
Readying up all sorts of information, list of review websites to contact, writing the perfect email and preparing everything to see how far I can reach through reviews.
I’ll be probably posting stats on how it progresses as it’s my very first mobile game ever.
Will it fail?
Will it succeed?
Find out in the next episode of RageFX’s lazy posts !
Sometimes you just have to point out that there is a reason why I put a big fat reset button.
I guess some people are better at reading explanations rather than trying to understand things by themselves =/
What’s a fighting game without blood?
If I have to add blood effects to a game, then I shall add so much blood that it’ll be spilling out of your screen as you play.
