Our first project has been out for nearly a week now. It hasn’t really competed much on the XBLIG marketplace with only about 100 sales but I can’t say I was expecting much more than that… our trial mode isn’t very good and puzzle games don’t do especially well on the dashboard in the first place.

The video of our trial mode being played in the above roundup video… is… just awful. I don’t know if anyone could have tried harder to make our game look terrible. I should probably blame the fact that our trial mode only allows people to play on EASY and our controls/help screens could have been a bit more in your face.
Seems like there have been some setbacks at the rate WU developers have been able to release. The only big success so far has been Epic Dungeon with the rest of the “big” games selling very few copies. Fortunately, with games like Crossfire 2 and ZP2KX just hitting the New Releases list and Cthulu Saves The World on the way soon, things may pick up. Here’s to hoping.
