While working on all the new enemies, I also have pushed a few updates.
The main thing about them is that prices are lowered for lives and the starter pack is more value for money - you get 20 lives when buying it now. Price is the same. Also there’s an option to buy a very affordable 50 pack of lives for 8 bucks.
Fixed a couple of bugs, one was pretty severe and would occur when exiting the game while in the shop.
If you buy anything ever, you wont get that nag screen suggesting you to buy a starter pack.
We changed server configuration a little and scaled it down a little to halve the costs, but there’s still lots of capacity left. The real problem is to get people in the game, not scale it as it stands now.. Our hosting costs are around 100 USD / month now, and what the game pulls in does not quite cover it yet. But we still have money to run these machines for well over a 6 months now, so there’s no worry. As soon as we figure out a few good ways of getting traffic here we know it converts to money.
Feels like just a day a week is too little for this project, but I’ll keep working on those enemies and keep you updated!
