Designer Dreams Come true

People are talking about our game on shoryuken!
http://shoryuken.com/f2/chus-dynasty-xbl-indie-fighter-calls-itself-mix-street-fighter-smash-259378/

I'm pretty pumped. I'm sure we are going to get a ton of harsh feedback from people who love fighting games and I can't wait.  Its exciting that people are talking about Chu's and will try and incorporate their criticisms into future updates.

Our first Reviews!!!!

Two days on the market, and we are starting to get our first reviews!   What an exciting and turbulent emotional experience! Of course we have prepared ourselves for the worst, and hoped for the best.  We have not regretted even the worst review or comment because it means: people are actually playing our game.  Our game meant enough for someone to take a moment out of their lives, and speak out about it, good or no.  That is an honor in our eyes and exactly what we have been hoping for.  So thank you to all the reviewers and commenters thus far, and in the future!


Our first two reviews:

Praying for this Wednesday

The Tribetoy team is praying that this Wednesday we will be able to put the game up for Peer review, and god-willing, it might be on the shelves by this weekend.  That would be so awesome I might keel over... if not in excitement than at the very least in exhaustion.

WE ARE MENTIONED ON KOTAKU!!!!!!!!

Sure, it is not DIRECTLY writing about us, but riding on the publicity coat-tails of the Indie Winter Uprising, the letters C-H-U-S-D-Y-N-A-S-T-Y have been typed in by one of the kotaku writers ON PURPOSE!!!!! Matt, Tara and I are FREAKIIIINGGGG OUUUUTTTT!! It was one of our dreams to be mentioned on Kotaku. Below is link:

Matt is now in an even MORE furious coding frenzy, and Tara has just went into 5th gear on re-vamping the website, that at this moment looks "eeehhhh". (Stubbed in by yours truly ;).

ChuDynasty joins "The Indie Games Winter Uprising!!!!"

ChusDynasty has joined forces with some of the best indie developers to execute "THE INDIE GAMES WINTER UPRISING!!!!"

http://www.indiegames-uprising.com/

WE ARE SO PUMPED!! Robert Boyd(http://zeboyd.com) approached us to join him and we are so grateful because we have been so busy trying to finish the frikin' game that we have had no time to dedicate to marketing (or really anything else, as you can tell by our fairly empty dev-blog right now).

Anyway, we are so grateful for all his hard work pushing the Winter Uprising(and in turn, US!). The launch date is a liiiiitle earlier than we had planned, so right at this very moment, Matt and Pino are in a coding frenzy to get this puppy shined up and ready to go for the launch date, first week in December.

Microsoft announced its upcoming release of xna 4.0 so now Matt and a couple other guys from the Torque community are currently working hard to port the engine over together, after Instant Action announced they would not be supporting the engine themselves.
