Just wanted to congratulate the Titan Attacks team on their Gametunnel Game of the Year awards! I know it's been a rough year for you Cas, so hopefully this will be a a shining moment!

Thanks :) It's still selling OK too. Could do with some more massive exposure from Apple.com though!

That is.... totally amazing :)

Not far from retirement I can imagine ;)

Make a game like that every 4-6 months or so, and sell it in 2000-3000 copies, and you can pretty much be self-employed. Very nice.


Would be nice to know the time/effort that went into creating it.

Hah, far from it! Took 5 games to get 1 good one! Still, I'm going full-time as of April so will have to step up the pace. We currently make about $1000 a month which is just enough to buy food but alas nothing else whatsoever. Our plans are to be earning $4000/month by the end of the year.

It took about 4-5 months to develop Titan in total (Chaz working in parallel on the graphics). Didn't really keep track of it because somewhere in the middle we did Ultratron.

You're having more success than many big game studios though ;)

Hm, don't speak too soon... sales seem to have flatlined, for all my games :S

hey just an idea for sales (i havnt seen all your games), but u may want to place a link on ur games or a subtext on the menu, with the site, "check for game updates" mayb add another lazer increase or something. may help keeps customers who are known for buying your games lookn on ur site. also sequels ;) r a good idea. anyway good luck with future sales :)
