[Closed] Coming soon - The Circus Masters Revenge

iOS and iPadOS Gaming

Calling all Blind gamers. I am working with a game production company to develop a game similar to Audio Defence. I guess I got tired of waiting around for someone else to do it. My game is called The Circus Masters Revenge. You guessed it. Instead of zombies coming at you. You will have 23 different kinds of circus performers that are trying to attack you. This game is still in the early stages of development. My first time attempting something like this so I am being very very picky. I don’t care if the blind community wants to play this game or not. I want to play it because I am a blind gamer that misses this type of game. I have to admit that when Somethin Else left iOS. I was really upset. I never even got to play the night jar. They definitely were ahead of their time as far as game play goes. Atleast on a mobile platform. Nobody since has even come close. This is where I want to succeed. Not just for all the blind gamers out there but for me. If you are interested in a game like this. Let me know in a comment. The more gamers interested in a game like this will help my game producers understand how important this game will be to us. I even got Marty from the blindfold series interested in this game. He is helping me understand the business side of this adventure. So when this game is developed and you enjoy it make sure you thank him for helping me out with the process. I will keep everyone updated on the progress right here. Thanks for your time. I will try my best not to let you down.

I think these answers are a bit late in the day, according to joseppi the app should be out wait for it pause, drum roll today. the hype element stems from the fact we have been told its going to be revolutionary amazing etc. other games have been very quiet and unassuming, I mean look at papa sangre that developer didn't make a lot of noise, yet the game quality was obvious and a lot of people enjoyed both those titles. same with crafting kingdom again that came out of nowhere but was very popular, by all means its great to engage with a developer, the problem is that we have had this for around 18 months, its a bit like a long election campaign, I think everyone just got board of all the hype, plus repeated questions can I test can I test, this will be amazing etc. question is, also is this game going to have unlockable achievements and content to help maintain interest for longer that might help with replayability.

if it comes out i'll try it. if not, no biggy. that's all I'll say here.

Seems like everyone is having quite enough fun on this form without the game

But, in all seriousness, go do something healthy rather than developer bashing, over speculating and just kinda being a big bunch of bores. You owe it to yourselves to be better than that. X

That's why I watch the entertainment value of my posts. Still there's a serious archetypical story unfolding here: the tale of a hero who at first does not succeed. He gets a lot of advice, ridicule, criticism, scepticism and, yes, aggression. In this time of far too few high-quality audio games, he is carrying a torch of hope, and accordingly he is blamed every time it seems to darken. Still let's not forget he owes us nothing, not even the truth. Let's not become twisted zombie cheerleaders reinacting the orchestra aboard the Titanic. Hope always entails the seed of disappointment, otherwise it would not be called hope but knowledge. The worst thing that can happen is not that he fails, but that he never tries again because of how we behaved. That, folks, would make us ghouls, and who needs ghouls?
Cheers Perry

When you put it like that, it sounds like an excellent script. Something like, The Game Devs Revenge...

The only changes that needed to be made where a way to restore in app purchaces. That was mandotory. Since then, the app has been resubmited and we're now waiting on apple

Submitted by Igna Triay on Friday, August 9, 2019

what jo said was this, the app would be resubmited, or uploaded, again to apple today. He never said, it will be on the appstore today, he said uploaded again for review to apple. @ perry, your post made my day. good one hahaha

Submitted by Igna Triay on Friday, August 9, 2019

you guys are really making me laugh. Great idea for a future game... the game dev's revenge... looooooool. Nice posts lmao

Submitted by alex wallis on Friday, August 9, 2019

Your quite correct I got the wrong end of the stick for which I am sorry. though my question is why didn't the developers implement the ability to restore inapp purchases without apple having to tell them to do so, its common these days, and you would think they would understand all apples guidelines being professionals. anyway sorry for giving out incorrect information.
I quite like the idea of a game developers revenge game, lets think what enemies could you have, zombie game testers hounding you to test the game, or a apple boss stopping you putting your app on the appstore for really silly reasons, coders menacing for money to finish your app, or else it gets deleted, computer viruses deleting your app, hardware failures. might be quite fun. and you could have fun puzzles like your keyboard breaks and you have to navigate to the shop to buy one, dodging various obstacles along the way, and once you get there having to get someone's attention to be served.

Submitted by Igna Triay on Friday, August 9, 2019

We overlooked it by mistake. Anyway its implemented now

I was also wondering the same thing. Hopefully we'll get the answers we've been waiting to hear.

Hei Joe
You know that I support you 100 %.
I know that publishing a game can be frustrating and long time taking process, but soon it will be out there, for all of us to play. Wish you the best!!

Thank you for all your support buddy. It definitely means a lot. I just hope this process becomes less frustrating in the future.

I have to agree. Just saying the equivalent of "bug fixes" in release notes (Yes I do read that a lot) does not help. I want to know what has ben done, when, and the result if applicable. An example are 1password's release notes. They give a lot of detail and even throw a lot of humor into it to not make the release log so boaring. Lol!

Submitted by KE7ZUM on Sunday, August 11, 2019

By the way I love the developer's revenge idea. If I could code that I would, and I'd even have a message if you lose that says "is it out, when, about 25 times to annoy theeperson who lost.

Has there been any news on release?

Submitted by Igna Triay on Monday, August 12, 2019

Hi, we're waiting on apple's reply still. The app was submited again for review on friday, but apple doesn't work on weakends on this, so we'll have to wait until they reply. Hopefully we'll get a reply from them soon

Submitted by KE7ZUM on Monday, August 12, 2019

Oh? Od. I've received updates on the weekends, maybe that department does, I dunno.

Submitted by Matthew Whitaker on Tuesday, August 13, 2019

Apple has an app that let's people test them out before they are released. The same goes for updates as well. It's called Test Flight.

Submitted by Will on Tuesday, August 13, 2019

the app has been tested and awaiting release …. can’t people read on here? read back through the forum … honestly people just clutter up the forum with you can test this do that do the other, if you read back a few posts, you'll see it's already done.

Submitted by ming on Tuesday, August 13, 2019

anything new?
is it still being process by apple staff.

Submitted by CrazyEyez on Tuesday, August 13, 2019

Some people are so stupid.
If your dumb ass took 9 seconds to go up a few comments, you would know that it has been resubmitted to apple.
Stop being lazy.
learn to read.
Bunch of annoying little children. Daddy! Is it out yet? Daddy! Is it out yet? Tell me daddy! Is it out yet? Daddy, can I test the game which has been submitted to apple twice?

Submitted by Oliver Kennett on Tuesday, August 13, 2019

It's often easy for us to forget that there are other people at the other end of these comments. I hope to think that you are a kind and patient person in the real world. Your frustration is only going to upset people and achieve little else. Saying nothing at all is even easier.

Agreed. Thank you for putting things into perspective. No updates for anyone as of now. We are still waiting. I really hope this is Over and complete this week. I know we are all tired of waiting. We are on the final stretch and it shouldn’t be too much longer.

Submitted by CrazyEyez on Tuesday, August 13, 2019

If you're an idiot, i'll tell you in the real world, and online.
Afterall, online is becoming people's lives now, so what is the real world anyway?

Don't ask stupid questions that are easily answered if you bothered to look.
I hate lazy people.

Submitted by Oliver Kennett on Tuesday, August 13, 2019

Good luck to you. I hope you manage to resolve your anger issues soon.

... ANYWAY, when's this flipping game coming out.... Can I test it?

Submitted by DMNagel on Tuesday, August 13, 2019

Would like to test also.

Submitted by Joel on Tuesday, August 13, 2019

How many times do we have to explain that the app has been tested already and is being reviewed by Apple at this moment? Crazy eyes is right. We don’t have anger issues just because we are pointing out that some people need to read more.
Mods... please close the topic until the game is out... it would be better for everyone...

Submitted by sockhopsinger on Tuesday, August 13, 2019

I think on a day when I have nothing better to do, I'm going to microwave myself up some popcorn, start at the beginning of this thread, and go through and read all the comments sequentially. Or better yet maybe each person could read their comments aloud, we could turn it into a video, and have a bestselling Audible radio drama.

Submitted by Oliver Kennett on Tuesday, August 13, 2019


Submitted by DMNagel on Tuesday, August 13, 2019

I'd also like to listen to the video when it's done.

Submitted by KE7ZUM on Tuesday, August 13, 2019

If this craziness goes on any long I myself will report this thread to the mods and ask it be locked. I swear people cannot read and want to test, it's done, fine, [spoken as fee neh], testing is over. So keep this up and the thread will, of possible be locked. I'm not a mod, but this is getting way too much. I have a life outside of this site and I don't have time to read anything nonproductive.

Submitted by Joel on Tuesday, August 13, 2019

Please do. It would be better for everyone if this topic was locked.

Regrettably, we believe it necessary to now close this thread to further comments.

This is not something that we do lightly, but it appears that some people were intent on forcing the issue.

A new thread should be created once this game is available from the App Store.
