Re: Updated Requirements for New macOS Applications on Steam

That said, notarization is meant to be a final step before distribution, not something you'd do midway through development. That's also what I understood. But the most problem is, to have a working updated XCode Studio and an Apple Developer Account to submit the Game to Apple for notarization. Thi...

Updated Requirements for New macOS Applications on Steam

As you may already know, Apple will be dropping support for 32-bit Mac applications in October 2019 with their release of macOS Catalina 10.15. In short, if your game is a 32-bit Mac application, customers who update their macOS to 10.15 will no longer be able to run the application. Steam will con...

You are welcome! I try to answer so profoundly because I have nothing to lose but everything to share :).

Yeah on mobile it's basically the same.

Re: Aeon of Sands - The Trail - a retro, post-apocalyptic RPG coming 4 Dec. 2018

Would you do it again? If you had to make a commercial game (but someone paid for the work), would you choose LOVE again? Hard question. I think no. I just spent too much time in front of the PC and instead with my family, that was not okay. I also know now that I (We) can. As a child I always want...

Re: Aeon of Sands - The Trail - a retro, post-apocalyptic RPG coming 4 Dec. 2018

Have you considered making a "historically accurate retro" RPG mode as a DLC? This shouldn't come at too much effort, not in making new assets anyway. I think something like "historically accurate retro" RPG don't exists. Do you mean character creation and XP, levels + attribute points? Personally ...

Re: Aeon of Sands - The Trail - a retro, post-apocalyptic RPG coming 4 Dec. 2018

I heard that reviews to sales ratio is about 1:100, is this true? With the kind of game it is, I can see how it didn't took off big - just because of the genre. Thx! The ratio of Steam reviews (other reviews don't count) vs sold units is somewhere between 40-50 (i know some other indie developers)....

Re: Aeon of Sands - The Trail - a retro, post-apocalyptic RPG coming 4 Dec. 2018

Timetable We started in 2012 and released the game in Dec. 2018. 2 years of preparation (setting/story/layout/engine/tools/aso.) 3 years of production (gamecode, art, music, levels, testing, aso.) 1 year doing a company, tax stuff, website, advertising, release, interviews, trailer, press, bugfixin...

Re: Aeon of Sands - The Trail - a retro, post-apocalyptic RPG coming 4 Dec. 2018

(sorry i‘m on mobile) @ivan Thanks. Of couse a publisher is not needed, but a lot of work pops up during release that you don’t want to deal with. Store taxing, registrations. Press, previews, reviews aso. All this takes time away from your game and you cannot do it better. I can tell you more in a ...

Re: Aeon of Sands - The Trail - a retro, post-apocalyptic RPG coming 4 Dec. 2018

In regard to Löve development i have to say: Teamwork It's hard to develop a bigger commercial game with Löve, as most freelancers don't know this engine nor they know lua. Normally you want to musician to place and test his sounds in the game/engine himself. You may also want that the artist tests ...

Re: Aeon of Sands - The Trail - a retro, post-apocalyptic RPG coming 4 Dec. 2018

In fact, for me now this is generally the best example of a love2d game in terms of aesthetics, art and product integrity. Hey thanks a lot! I would say there are many more löve games that are worth to get this title :). Some time has passed since the release of the game. Can you share some figures...
