After leaving Big Fish Games in January I had an idea to convert my old Easter Bonus game to Mac so I could get it on the Mac App Store. But as I thought about it more, I realised that the game needed a complete overhaul in order to sell well in the modern casual market. So I embarked on a crazy mission to make Spring Bonus before Easter Sunday (April 24th). I hired an artist in Mexico, an art team in the Ukraine and a musician in Holland. Then I got my old Holiday Bonus code and completely upgraded it, made new Grey Alien Framework additions, and then crunched like crazy over the last month to get it made (last week I worked 85 hours, 70 the week before and so on).
Anyway, it actually got done on time (and has been localized into 8 non-English languages) and has been sent off to all the big portals, plus it will soon be coming out on iPad and Windows Phone 7 with the help of some people who are porting it for me.
I’m very proud of this game because it took such a mighty effort to get it done and I think it turned out well. The beta testers liked it a lot and I hope you do too. I also hope it sells well because it’s very important to my family.
Let me know what you think!
