So what, you get like 70 cents for each sale? That's not bad at all. Is it online yet?

it's still in peer review because the foreign language versions aren't getting reviewed. ms has a really stupid process for getting indie games released where you have to get other indie guys to voluntarily review your game. it takes about a month in english, but the other language versions are kinda at the mercy of the handful of foreigners they've got.

you can "pass" a game in multiple languages, but you're assuring MS that you are fluent in all the languages you pass a game in

so most people only pass in english

Can someone review Chojin's Game and tell me if it's worth my cash. Also, is there anywhere I can pirate this?

So what kind of publicity are you hoping to get for your game? Are you planning to shop this around to all the various indie websites?

i was going to use the free adsense credit i got with my godaddy domain to put up some targeted banners, maybe see if the various cyberpunk communities would want to link to it. i'd like to shop it to io9 also.

i'm also going to pitch it to Steam with an extra multiplayer mode and maybe some more content in the single player.

now one of their forum mods is being shitty because i had the gall to ask people to peer review my game after it's been stuck at 85% for 2 weeks. STOP BEGGING, GAWD, IT'S AGAINST THE RULES THAT AREN'T WRITTEN ANYWHERE.

i hate volunteer mods with all of my hate

on other forums

*fucking wow, this douchelord has a sig asking people if he should write a book with links to two separate threads about it. STOP BEGGING FOR VALIDATION OF YOUR EXISTENCE ASSFACE

well anyway because apphub's peer review system was designed by a chimp, I'm actually going to have to remove support for other languages to get the game approved. then i guess i'll make a patch that supports the 4 other languages and let it sit in approval limbo for eternity.

Those guys don't sound very professional. It's like Microsoft Live is being run by Wikipedia editors.

Just for chuckles I translated your game into Spanish, at least what was on that video.

Spoilers!

There's actually quite a bit of text when you look at all the strings in the game. There's the in-game hints and notifications, then all the little shit like labels in the UI, instructions, words that pop up for collecting stuff, credits, and so on.

Thanks Hadas. The person who did the French localization also offered to do Spanish and Italian, so theoretically I could support 5 of the 6 XBLA languages (the 6th is japanese which none of my fonts support). However getting 3 XBLA languages passed has proven impossible so I'm hesitant to ask anyone to waste their time making the game even more difficult to pass.
