Daredogs has been out now for a week and a half. It’s a rocky start, we were hoping for much more. It really seems like Google Play is very very tough on the indie developers. We have been marketing furiously but have managed to achieve way too few installs. The rating on our game is still very good, at 4.7. Also Androidtapp and Tapscape reviewed our games and the reviews were really positive!
We will just have to wait and see, work on our marketing as much as we can. We need a miracle! Oh boy… Well miracles do happen, right? I’m going to write Santa Claus and wish for many many downloads by christmas. I want to send huge chunks of money bags to dogs all over the world!
Did I mention we support charity? I guess not. Well, we do! 10-20% of our game goes to dogs in need everywhere. At this rate those dogs will still be very much in need though ;(.
Well actually we are Bugbyte Productions right now. You may ask what our very first challenge was when we decided to put up our own company. We sure didn’t expect the name to be so goddamn hard to figure out! But it was… All kinds of names started flooding our heads. And already here an experienced business man could have seen what truly is the most challenging part when founding a company with more than one founders. Agreeing on something! I thought this name would be great, well my brother thought that name would be awesome! Maybe we could mix the two? No… That wouldn’t work. After a lot of hassle we actually had to decide on a name quite hastly because we were running out of time!
What a start! We went with Bugbyte Productions, even though we weren’t completely satisfied with it. Then one week later or so I talk with my sister on the phone and she just blurts out: “Well Bugbyte Brothers would sound cool!”. Yes! It would! Actually it is awesome! Oh boy… Who knew calling your sister would yield such results. Well here we are, and here we go!
