Default State of the game "WOTA: Wolves of the Atlantic"



It’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything new about the WOTA. I’ve wrote a newsletter and released it on the website https://hessburg.com/state_of_the_game/

All the best, Mark! Take the time you need. We all know it's hard to create a real game and not just a cloud of promises.

Plus it seems that the interest for mobile games is about NIL so to say. As long as you don't promise something fancy for PC it gets no interest at all.

sounds good so far, i have been following this one for a while

I think you probably could do a crowdfunding of some sort for it, given that you have put in a lot so far and just need to get over the line. Where crowdfunding usually goes belly up is when too much is promised and nothing really has been done, but you have done quite a bit.

I think you could have a really great game here and it has such a good name and unique acronym - just superficial things i know, but they make your project stand out

i will make sure to buy captain temporium if that can help you

That's a good summary and update. I can tell you've invested a huge amount of work and effort.

Thanks, Neal.
Maybe I should paint this quote of Robert Watson-Watt on the wall behind my computer screen: “Give them the third-best to go on with; the second-best comes too late, the best never comes.” – Of course I would try to aim for the 2nd best then.

Weird. It should be available on all App Stores. Have you clicked on the links on the website or searched on the store?

iOS App Store

Mac App Store

the emporium game is interesting but i cant quite figure out how the steering works,- it is a strange setup with some invisible areas of the screen performing different functions - i am not sure if i can do this with two hands or if i need three hands to control both the steering on one side and teh the firing on the other side - it would be better if you had an option for it where the the steering is on either side and the firing buttons are near to the edge to so that one can steer and fire with the same hand for both hands, it is a game that requires alot of maneuvering and shooting after all.

The update for controls is already on its way. (on-screen joystick and visible buttons)
I will upload it today. It should show up in updates within a few days.
