Day 373 to Day 379 - Huge Marketing Boost & Lead Artist Found

January 15, 2012

Well, this week was a very good week for getting exposure for the game.  At the beginning of the week I discovered the game had been posted on  The addition lead to a few more visitors and beta testers to the site.  Well, a day later, IGN's FilePlanet Beta Center picked up WorldAlpha and listed it.  Well, a steady stream of beta testers has ensued, with around 40 signing up every day since it was listed on their site.

Beta Tester Winners

This huge boost in marketing resulted in pushing the total number of beta testers over 500.  As promised, I'm going to give away a $10 Amazon or iTunes gift card for every 200 beta testers.  So, for this first achievement, I’m going to give away 3 gift cards.  Using the the winning numbers are 158, 251 and 479.  Congratulations to Bob B., Szulcu B. and Atakan E.

Sniper Background

This week the color scheme was decided on for the Sniper Background.  It is an evening scene, so we went with a lot of blue.

Lead Artist

I'm excited about hiring a Lead Artist for WorldAlpha.  Mike Fortais will be heading up the 3D work, as well as video work for the game, along with also overseeing the 2D work that needs to be done.  It is good to now have someone with graphics experience, leading the charge in terms of the look and feel of the game.

I use most of the services offered by this company and I am now getting hundreds of targeted visitors to my website every day. Take a look here:
