I published my first game for Windows Phone (Endless Shooter) on April 5th, 2011. Since then I've released 4 more games (Bubble Blaster, Confuzzled, and Puzzlement) and TemPic(a temporary picture sharing app), and now almost two and a half years later I'm happy to announce that I've had over 200,000 downloads!

It's taken a while, I know, but what's more exciting (to me at least) is that over 60,000 of those downloads were in the last month! So I'm hoping that momentum continues!

In my last post about TemPic, I posed the question of if there was a market for the app in light of other developments. And after a period of thinking I should abandon the project, I've come around and have been working on updates for it once again. I have lots of ideas and features I want add, but it's going to stay more of a side project while I work on other game ideas. Because, honestly, games are more challenging and fun to make ;)

Which brings me to my last bit of news. After almost a year and a half of development, with a break in there to write TemPic and rethink the gameplay mechanics, Strategery is ready for beta testing! What's Strategery you ask? Why, it's a round based online strategy game for Windows Phone 7/8!

Here's how it works, each round players get money, buy units, move units around, and attack their opponents! Even if you miss a round, you enemies might not and that could leave you scrambling to defend yourself.

Sound fun? It is! And I'm looking for people with Windows Phones to help me test it!

If you have a Windows Phone 7 or Windows Phone 8 device and want to try it out, just send me the email address of the Microsoft Account you signed into your phone with when you first got it so I can add you to the private beta! Once I get you on the list I will email you a link to download Strategery from the Store!
