It's just over two weeks since Mush was launched, so we thought it was time for a round-up of what's been going on!
The game is continuing to get a positive response on the Marketplace, currently sitting at #5 in the US and #6 in the UK under "Top Games". We seem to have divided the audience a little - in particular, we've picked up that a few players would like the game to be longer and more difficult - but overall, we can't complain about average ratings of 4.5 stars! Here are a few of our favourite comments...
"Great job guys this game is adorable BTW im a 17 year old guy who loves skyrim and BF3 and this game makes my heart turn to mush (in a good way ^_~)" - Player741572160
"The best game on WP! I am proud to be a WP user when I play this! The greatest use of an accelerometer or a touch screen I have ever experienced in a game. This is mobile gaming!" - sizeXLundies
"Absolutely wonderful game!! Only thing that can make it better is more levels!! WP needs more games of this calibre." - NaturedPond
"I'm CloudLXXXV, & i approve this game!" - CloudLXXXV
"Great game. Super slick visuals. A fun and original platformer. Easy to pick up but be warned, very difficult to put down." - Pushie Slim
We've had a few more reviews too:
8.5/10 on PocketGamer.fr
77% on All About Windows Phone
And our favourite description so far:
"[Mush is] a sweet and sincere little snack that's charmed its way onto my list of the most delightful experiences Xbox Live on Windows Phone 7 has to offer." from Kotaku, where Mush was Gaming App of the Day earlier in the week!
Of course, much as we love the glittering praise, not every comment can be complimentary. Luckily, we know that criticism is equally (if not more!) important in helping us improve our games - not to mention keeping our egos in check - so all feedback is very much appreciated :)
That's it from us for now. We're having a Mango meeting tonight and will be discussing possible updates for Mush, so do hop on Twitter and give us a shout if you have any suggestions for things you'd like to see!
Over and out.
