I had a bumpy release of our Game Jam game, it had a lot of bugs. Bugs that made the game unplayable and otherwise annoying for people who tried to play it. I was getting terrible ratings…. like 1.2 stars… it’s moved up to like…. 2.9 stars since i’ve fixed bugs! I can’t help but imagine how much better my rating could have been if I released the game AFTER all the bugs were fixed. But to be honest, I wasn’t even aware of the bugs until people who weren’t me tried to play the game using their own perspective. I put in a lot of effort to fix the game, and it’s good now, there are still some minor bugs, but nothing huge like there was before.
Anyway… receiving messages like this from people makes it all worth it.. and uh, on top of that, it just generally makes my day. These are the people I do this for:
