Hey guys, I've put back the release of SORT 'EM! ( http://forums.gamesalad.com/discussion/62151/sort-em-puzzle-app-progress-thread ) till the end of February now....

And the reason is: I've been working on another game for the last two days that I want to get finished first. (This isn't the one that I wanted to finish first you might remember me mentioning in other threads - that's another one - this one I only thought about and started a couple of days ago, as mentioned).

I've never been one to jump on any bandwagons but at the same time, I'm trying to become more "commercial" where possible.... and to that end, I suddenly thought I could make an app specifically for St. Valentine's Day, hence this game called Spot the Difference Victorian Valentine Postcards.

So ideally I'd like it to have been in the iTunes Store for at least a week before St.Valentine's Day... I'd better get my skates on and have this finished by the end of Jan leaving a week for Apple to approve. I hope I can manage it, I should do if I put my mind to it; it's not all that complicated an app...

I've got in mind too for at least another 3 in the series, i.e spot the difference games hopefully finished and released later on during the year. All of them, including this one - Spot the Difference Victorian Valentine Postcards - will be free to download with approx 6 levels to play and with the option to unlock the full game via IAP.

Here's the first progress thread for Spot the Difference Victorian Valentine Postcards, for your interest; hope you like how it's coming along... wish me luck getting it finished by the end of this month! (Jan)

P.S The video is flickering for some reason... that's not intentional! i.e doesn't happen in preview, only on the vid.

    Looks super cool. So good, in fact, that I couldn't tell the difference in the two images!

    Cheers; and well spotted, Bray! (That there's no difference in the two postcards.... yet...) I've just started the differences in PS as it happens...

    For yours or anyone else's interested, I've updated my website (shown in my sig. below) to include the app icon for Spot the Difference Victorian Valentine Postcards if you'd like to take a look (on the iPad website page). Right, I'm off to plough on...

    Hi, Here's the second progress video of Spot the Difference Victorian Valentine Postcards if you'd like to take a look.

    The strange juddering that plagued the first vid. luckily isn't in this one, thank goodness... anyhow, not much has changed from the first vid. except I've now almost finished the levels card. Hope you enjoy watching the progress of this puzzle game so far.

    @timolapre1998 Ow, ow, ow!! I was wondering if anyone would notice..... ;-)

    I missed the boat..... :(( (my writing took over again...) I still will finish it and despite missing my self-imposed deadline, will submit it relatively soon, but seeing as its after St. Valentine's Day, it might not be as successful as it perhaps could have been...

    Still, what I think I'll do is keep back 5 of the puzzles and update it well in time next year around this time, see what happens....

    Anyhow, I'll keep you and anyone else interested on the progress of this... you've prompted me to get it finished now, so I'm going to jump straight back on to it... better late than never, as they say....

    Was you, or anyone else, disappointed the app wasn't in time? Never mind, cheer yourself up with a bit of Olympic Cat Curling:

    @Braydon_SFX Ah, so sorry abut that, Bray... *slap myself on the wrist*... ;-)

    But seriously, I'm disappointed I didn't make the deadline too... sorry I promised you and others and failed... still, I hope to have it all up and running in a couple of weeks time now, hope you can hang on a bit longer.

    Just remembered about this one too, I'll get this out of the way before I carry on with my adventure game.

    Should be finished in a couple of weeks at most, definitely in time for next year's Valentine's Day anyhow.

    So that'll be 4 apps I'm submitting in January now (well, this one early Feb):

    Ambient Writer
    Sort 'Em!
    Neko Montaaju
    Spot the Difference Victorian Valentine Postcards

    I've been busy over the last couple of years as you see... there's still a few more I might finish before continuing the adventure game, haven't decided yet.

    Here's another progress vid of Spot the Difference Victorian Valentine Postcards for your interest:

    To mention, I finished this totally tonight so this thread is finished (unless anyone wants to make a comment) and i'll submit to Apple in Jan. :smile:

    P.S there are 28 postcards to spot the difference with, 10 differences each one. The music is one of my tracks so no credit needed.
