Work on version 1.5 continues… broke out my marker pen and the scanner to produce some more leet artwork for the new towers:
Ink / Blob Tower
Finally plumbed in the Boost tower so it now err boosts. My request for translations on the HDG forum has gotten a good response – someone even posted Chinese. Apparently is ‘Creep’… but it looks more like someone bending down to insert a dvd into a dvd player to me! The problem with asking for translations is that I actually have to put the text into the game. Meh. French and Spanish have been completed after a marathon copy & paste session.
This is all a big experiment (and not a small amount of effort) to see whether an independant game can generate significant extra plays when translated into other major languages. I’m hoping yes, or oui, or ja, or hai.
On a side note the site’s eCPM has doubled since the start of the week. Result.
