I’m still trying to understand the audience of my BotSumo game, as analytics for apps don’t seem to have the detail about the type of audience as we’re permitted with web analytics. From what I’ve gathered, most of the players are young, and I’m gathering that from user reviews saying they enjoy to play at school, or play with siblings.

I quite like recognising special events through my projects. The OngoingWorlds logo switches to wearing a Santa hat at Christmas, and holds a pumpkin at Halloween.
I created this animation for BotSumo for Valentines day!
So I’ve now got a version of BotSumo which doesn’t have ads (I wrote about it here), and has new levels. This version costs £0.80 / $0.99, but I’ve figured out that I can give out promo codes which allow you to download this for free.

I’ve released a new version of BotSumo, which is a paid version with no adverts, which means all bots are unlocked right from the start, like the CogBot – as seen below:

Sometimes I wonder if making games for a hobby is pointless, but then something happens and it makes me excited again. That happened yesterday when I discovered this video of some French kids playing my BotSumo game (on Android). Continue reading I found these videos of people playing my BotSumo game
Yesterday I caught my PC trying to upgrade to Windows 10, and I quickly put a stop to it. Windows has been threatening this for a while, and I saw Helen’s laptop take several hours to upgrade, on a day she needed to do work.
The biggest reason I stopped it though was because it’ll make my 3Ds Max useless. I have a trusty version from 2010 that is essential for optimising and rendering assets for my games. Continue reading Putting some 3D assets onto Turbosquid before the Windows 10 upgrade makes my PC useless
My game BotSumo that I made for Android has been on the Android Play store since January, and has been downloaded now over 12,000 times. Most of those people downloading were from the US, which was to be expected, but weirdly it found secondary audiences in Russia and Brazil, despite not being translated into their native languages.
