I set up a Discord for xMoon. Come drop by and say hi if you have time and are into that kind of thing: https://discord.gg/pURK4eh
@korruptor Hi, congrats on Lumo! I played it on the Switch last year and I thought it was a really fun game!
xMoon is officially out on Steam Early Access! Big thanks to my Mastodon friends for your helpful feedback so far! https://store.steampowered.com/app/1035410/xMoon/
Day 2 went a lot better.
1. I tweeted to itch.io asking to put my game in the "fresh games" category on the front page of itch -- and that actually worked.
2. I started a 100% off sale, which attracted a lot of attention. During the sale, xMoon was in the top 50 most popular games on itch. I didn't make any money but I least I got the game into people's hands. Hopefully these people will help spread the word.
I've tweeted this before (but not tooted):
Graph of "Player audience size versus number of games meeting player audience criteria on Steam"
Important note: this is players (not purchases/installs).
I launched xMoon on itch.io yesterday. So far the page has 6 views. https://willwhiteneck.itch.io/xmoon
Alright, I have a published game, after 8+ years:
Chess Show more
It took me almost 10 years, but my chess rating finally breached 1600.
xMoon's Steam page is up! It's still in "Coming Soon" mode, but it almost looks like a real game now! https://store.steampowered.com/app/1035410/xMoon/
