Default Please support a great game and an Aussie WP7 Developer....

Hey all,

For those with WP7 devices - I'm asking if you can help me help an Aussie developer get his great game (check it out in the marketplace) certified to be XBL - XBox Live Achievement approved by MS.

Here's his details:

Hi Guys,

Can you do me a favor and follow me on twitter (@jabberworx). Also if it's not too much trouble tweet/email the following people:

@brianseitz @skipdeez @BrandonWatson as well as email: wpgames@microsoft.com

Asking them all about getting Chicks'n'Vixens XBL integrated (so I can add XBL achievements to the game). So far the impression I'm getting from Microsoft and gamers is that the game is XBL worthy *but* no one at microsoft who knows how to get Chicks'n'Vixens approved for XBL is responding to my tweets or emails so if the mob starts tweeting and emailing I'm hoping they will have to listen and respond.
So I figure if people could show their support for the game it could get the attention of the giant.

Don't harrass anyone (we're all friends here), just let them know you would like to see chicks'n'vixens get XBL integration. They know how to contact me about that stuff but it seems every attempt I make to communicate with them is lost in a sea of noise.

I think it can be a real win-win situation for all parties involved and since I've run out of traditional methods of communicating with microsoft I figure there's no harm in letting them know the community has my support too

Thanks for the help guys!

Hi guys,

Just saying so long as this thread is about Chicks'n'Vixens if you have any suggestions or ideas to improve the game let me know, either tweet me (@jabberworx), email me (jabberworx[at]gmail[dot]com) or post here

A lot of the games enhancements are the direct reslt of people giving me their honest suggestions and opinions, so I count on it to produce a quality game

Cheers

Um...wow. I guess if "imitation is the highest form of flattery," then you must have REALLY liked Angry Birds...

But with that said, it does look very high quality.

it was initially just going to be a proof of concept tech demo type game I made to test out physics integration with my engine but it ballooned up and now I'm trying to see how far we can push it

Well angry birds wasn't exactly an original idea either. They polished a proven concept, added in their own flavor and made it work better then anyone else had previously, although Angry Birds had the advantage of its kind of games not being overly popular, and actually kinda limited in game mechanics... So yeah, your fighting an uphill battle if you dont think of something to really make people want to try your version.
