Experience after first release.
Right off the bat, I learned that of course, not everyone is going to like the games made by Cenokga. As after the first game release, it got a negative review which I handled the response wrongly. Instead of using it as an opportunity to grow and fix errors found in the game, which there were a lot of errors. Errors I didn’t even know existed and somehow slipped through testing. I acted like I could control anything that people said about my game and if it wasn’t good, I could demand that they take it down. This thinking was quickly proved otherwise. I may not have liked it at first, but now I am actually glad it happened. Now I can use this experience to learn from. I cannot control what people say about games by Cenokga. Current or future games. The only thing I can do, is to follow Cenokga’s saying “To make games for people to enjoy.” And to use whatever people say about it’s games for the good of the game and the company. Whether whatever people say is well intended or not, I can use it as constructive feedback to creating better games and fixing current games.
I know I got off at a wrong start with Cenokga’s first game release on Steam, but I want to start again anew. Start off fresh. I’ve now released a Patch Version 1.0.3 for Starclaw: Battle of StarSpace Nebula that includes various Player Experience changes and Fixes to the game. It includes a remade SFX and BGM volume control and a better multiplayer select screen and game balancing fixes.
What I now ask, is that people now give Cenokga a chance. Let me prove to be the game developer I set out to be. Let me prove to be the game developer whose games you can’t wait to be released.
I now I compared myself to Rare and EA but, remember that I’m a one man game studio, whose doesn’t have a team like they do. I do almost everything. Programming, Music, testing, marketing and lot more. Sometimes one area gets over looked and forgotten about. Which causes bugs and glitches that I wasn’t aware of. Honestly, when I got angry about the negative review, it wasn’t to harm the reviewer or the website. It was because I was defending my hard work the only way I knew how.
If I could give back to the gaming community somehow, I would. But, I am going to offer anyone reading this post, a 50% discount on Starclaw: Battle of StarSpace Nebula Steam Version on the Xsolla store at: https://starclaw-battle-of-starspace-nebula.xsollasitebuilder.com If you purchase, you’ll be sent a Steam Key for Windows. You’ll also be able to purchase the Original Soundtrack for 50% off as well.
As for the retail price on Steam, I actually wanted to lower its price, but because of NDA reasons I cannot lower the Steam price yet. In the coming months, the retail price will be lowered. I cannot go into detail on what the price will be either.
I want to again extend my apologies to anyone I have hurt during this experience.
I will leave off with a quote from Mr. Reggie Fils-Aime:
“You want to be known as the person who does the thing that is right, instead of the thing that is easy”
