On Wednesday, we announced that we received approval from Apple for the latest and greatest update of Party Animals: Dance Battle. Everyone on the development team is pretty jazzed right now. Months and months of work have gone into the launch of this version of the game. All of the multiplayer and social features are in place. It’s truly social at its core, with hooks into Facebook, Twitter, GameCenter, texting, email, chatting, searching contacts on your phone – you name it, and there’s a way to connect to and challenge your friends through Party Animals: Dance Battle.
Even though the game is technically “live” on the App Store in the USA, we’re still running some tests to make sure that everything is working properly. We will not officially “launch” the game with a marketing campaign until we conclude these tests, which may take a few weeks.
Party Animals: Dance Battle is a truly social mobile game that is really more like a service than a discrete product. We’re going to be adding new features and new content to the game over time. What are those features? What new content? We have some ideas, but the actual features and content will largely be decided by the fans of the game. There are lots of different ways that players can give us feedback, including posting to our Facebook page, writing a review on iTunes, or providing feedback right in the game itself.
If you have downloaded the game, you can access the screen we’ve displayed above. Here’s how to do that:
- Tap on the gear icon on the bottom bar menu.
- Tap on the “Feedback” button at the bottom of the pop up list.
- You should see the screen above now. Type in your email address if you want to hear back from us. Then, below the email entry space, tap in the “How can we help?” area and start typing on your iPhone or iPad.
- When you’re done, you should see a message that says, “Thanks!” and an option to close the box or “View Messages.” If you tap on “View Messages” you’ll be able to review all of the messages that you’ve sent to us through the game.
We are interested in your opinions and ideas. If you find it awkward or slow to type on your phone or tablet, use your computer to go here: http://frzt.us/1ef1nFh
Also, please don’t forget to go to iTunes (on your device or on your computer) and rate the game and write a review. The rankings in the App Store are partly determined by the perceived quality of the game from those who play it. High ratings and positive reviews not only improve the rankings but also help new potential players who read the reviews decide to download the game.
From the development team, we’re grateful to all who have supported us along the way. And we’re now excited to get feedback and continue to improve Party Animals: Dance Battle to make it even better!
