Planned Updates For Space Shooter X
Hello! I’d just like to share what I have in store for Space Shooter X in the near future.
An XNA version that will work with Windows Phone 7 is currently under development. The windows Phone 8 version was developed using MonoGame framework.
So far, code refactoring has been rather straight forward. Apart from the creation of the content pipeline that works with XNA, only few minor changes are made in the code here and there.
Multi-language support is also coming to Space Shooter X. I got inspired by this article where according to the developer, localisation in eight languages has multiply their market reach 4 times.
I know multi-language app is helpful in any dev’s marketing effort but knowing how much it will help from other dev’s experience has encouraged me to start working at it sooner.
I plan to add Portuguese, Spanish, Chinese, Russian, Italian and French in the next major version update. That should cover another 75% of the potential users of the game!
The developer, DevRain has reached 6 million downloads in Windows Phone Store. How inspiring!
Other planned updates include several exciting new levels as I noticed some players have reached the maximum level in the current version.
By the way, I minor update, version 1.4 was released yesterday.
Finally, I also plan to port this game to Windows 8 before making it available for Android and IOS.
