Been a while since I’ve written anything. Since you can’t RSS this blog, I’m sure no one’ll see this for weeks. Ha.
So. If you haven’t already heard, we’re having a kid. Specifically, if everything continues to chug along as it has, we’ll be having a son in October. No, we don’t yet know the name. Stop asking. 🙂
Ei-Nyung’s younger (I’d originally written little, but he’s not that little anymore) brother is coming out to visit for about a month starting Saturday. Starting *Wednesday*, we’ll be getting the floors refinished. It’s all pretty crazy. We’ve been painting the new drywall for the last five or six days – I’m just about as sick of painting as a single person can be, and more, both hands are totally cramped from the pressure required to get a thin coat of paint out of the rollers. I picked up a Napa cabbage at the store this evening, and could barely hold on to it.
Tomorrow, we’ve gotta move the remaining stuff outta the living room so that the floors can be sanded. Should be fun.
It’s pretty crazy how different it all looks.
On the work side, Taxiball’s been out for a couple weeks now, and it’s chugging along. We got featured in the “New & Noteworthy” section of the Games page on the App Store, and while it’s been good at generating momentum, and the game continues to sell, it’s not taking off like a rocket. We’ve got lots of really, really positive reviews from review sites, but it’s not driving traffic to the game. Advertising on Penny Arcade’s really entertaining for me from a personal perspective, but hasn’t paid off in terms of a return on the investment.
The next few things we’ve got in the pipe are all really, really exciting – and given Taxiball’s positive response, I’m confident that the next games will be as good – it’s just a matter of getting them out to an audience. We’re gonna keep updating Taxiball with new content, and see how it does – we have some really oddball plans coming up, so who knows what will eventually make the game “tip.”
Anyway. Gotta get someone to look at the outside of the house – if we can get the water leak fixed before winter, then that’ll be all the major house issues, save the upstairs bathroom, complete. Who would have thought?
