Raybits 'n' Greenlights

I thought I'd post a little status update. It's been an awful month, firstly family members snuffing it, video games breaking, PC's dying and illness. Dayum. So with hopefully the last of the bad luck I'm now back to making lovely video games and what better to show off but my Pico Day game, Cathode Raybits :)3727177_139169909433_raybits_by_sinclairstrange-d75boap.png

Even though I've got a ton of work to do, with my other project I'm still making this, 'cause it's damn awesome. It's got six-eight levels planned and it plays like if, MegaMan, Contra and Castlevania had a sex and shat out of baby. 

Now onto my other project, I've been GREENLIT!  I don't know how I did it, but I went away to attend a funeral, (I didn't have internet access), I come back two weeks later to find out that it's been Greenlit! I didn't really do any work, and just showed off my flash prototypes but damn, it means I've got to work on that now!

So 'cause of that, have an image of one of the bosses:3727177_139169909383_catpuppet_by_sinclairstrange-d75book.jpg

CATPUPPETS! <3 Anyway that's what be happening, that's my little wee update. Except a little demo of Raybits out sometime in March. I'm so looking forward to releasing that for Pico Day! 

Til den, byes byes :). -Joel

Yeah, I would like to slide in there before they just open up the floodgates to anyone. That's kind of insane that yours shot up like that in such a short period without any outside help. Good job!

Good luck, generally once it hits over 10000 votes, it's usually considered Greenlit people was telling me.

I really think it was luck. I'm scared if I ever went to try for my "actual" project, it don't do half as well.



P.S. I'm at #19 now, but only 9,400 YES votes.

2/6/14 SinclairStrange responds:

That's good, *fingers crossed* it'll be in the next batch. When the 7thJan batch happened, I shot up like 30 odd places. It's such a flawed system and apparently they're getting rid of the system sometime anyway :S.



Crazy! If you don't mind me asking, what did you do to get the word out about it?

2/6/14 SinclairStrange responds:

Absolutely nothing.

I just submitted it as a "test" to see what it was all about. Get some information on how to like make my next proper Greenlight submission a success. Somehow, I don't know how, it just few off with lots of votes, (polarized however.) Before I knew it, it was Greenlit and here I am like, shocked.

I honestly think I got lucky. Extremely lucky.



Arrr, so jealous you got Greenlit! I'm still waiting. What was your rank on Greenlight?

2/6/14 (Updated 2/6/14) SinclairStrange responds:

I'm shocked! It took 21 days and like, wow. It finished up being 11th place. (Last time I checked.) It might of gone up or down. It got 11400 yes votes, and 11200 no votes.

I was prepared for a long wait, even packed sandwiches for it as well.

(Oh I voted yes btw on ya Greenlight submission :) )
