Not since God invented sex has there been as good a time killer as this!

by edi on Jan.21, 2011, under TicBits

For those of you looking for a fun way to kill time, something that you can do even if you’re at the office, then here’s some Great News! We’re happy to say that we’ve now launched the popular iPhone word association game iAssociate 2 also for the Facebook platform, meaning that millions of people will now be able to experience iAssociate 2 for the first time since the original game was launched for the iPhone in 2009!

If you are one of those wondering what Miss Piggy and Yoda have in common; how Chess and Jedi Knights are related; what common word Hardcore and Gender relate to; and so forth, then look no further, as in iAssociate 2 you will encounter word associations in lots of varied topics, covering everything from food, drinks, movies, video games and lots more!

You can find iAssociate 2 on Facebook from the following link: iAssociate 2

Facebook version of iAssociate 2 launched

by edi on Jan.21, 2011, under TicBits

We’ve just launched a Facebook version of iAssociate 2. It can be found at http://apps.facebook.com/iassociate/

The game works just like the iPhone version, meaning that the basic game is free for all to play, with a number of levels unlocked already at the start of the game. The game features lots of never before seen levels, including one of my favorites, which is the Video Games level, which features all kinds of video games, both old and new, starting from the Super Mario games and including such classics as Max Payne, BioShock, games by LucasArts, etc. If you’re a video games fan then I suggest that you definitely check out that level!

Current Situation =)

by edi on Nov.27, 2009, under iPhone development

Just a quick update to those of you who are following my progress in the App Store.

Quickly said, things are going great. As I posted my previous post here, regarding the possibility of making money on the App Store, I was just seeing the beginning of my climb up the rankings (and climb in sales). As things now have moved along for almost two weeks the direction has been UP.

I’ve seen both the free version downloads and sales slowly climb, so that pretty much every day is a new record in terms of sales and downloads. Thanks to that I’ve also managed to rise in the rankings a bit, I actually just made it into the 3rd spot in the Word Game category in the US App Store, something I’m really proud of, considering that the number one spot is occupied by a game “some of you” might know, Scrabble… (That brand might just be a little bit bigger than the one I’m building with iAssociate and Associate This ;) ).

But no matter what, I do think I’ve got all the possibilities in the world to make iAssociate #1. The feedback I’m constantly getting is that people are loving the game, everyone is pretty much saying that they really like the game and the fact that it makes them think. So based on this I do believe that there is a really good chance to actually make something bigger out of this, something that will have a lasting appeal. And who knows, maybe iAssociate will one day be a household name, something that people come to associate to word association games. I do feel that the brand iAssociate is the ultimate name for these kind of games, especially on the iPhone. Also, Associate This is also pretty good in my opinion, I really like the way that name works together with theme levels, telling you immediately what the game is all about. =))

So, all in all, things are constantly moving forward, who knows, with some luck I might even manage to get some more publicity for this game, or the story behind it, one day, at least the review Erica Sadun wrote was a really good step in that direction, showing that it is possible even as a single developer to get some attention for your games.

If anyone out there is interesting in the full story behind iAssociate, please contact me, I’d be more than happy to share my thoughts behind it, how everything has started out from 0 and gone to pretty much 100 now during the last year.

Thanks to all of you who’ve made this possible!!!

P.S. I’ve recently created a Facebook page for iAssociate, if you want to keep track of the latest news then feel free to join it, you can find it here:

P.P.S The service provider for my server had some downtime today, the first I’ve experienced so far. They were down for almost two hours, so if you experienced any problems either accessing my pages or submitting your scores earlier in the evening then that was because of that. Hopefully that won’t happen again…

P.P.P.S More levels are on their way, not sure yet when they’ll be out though… in the meantime, if someone hasn’t tried to Movies or Girls levels in the form that they are found in the free Associate This version then feel free to try them out. Also, for those levels ANY comments on how to improve them would be greatly appreciated, as I intend to release them in iAssociate at some point. (Of those the Girls levels will require a lot of work until I’m happy enough to include it to iAssociate…) Anyway, these levels can be found here :

Associate This: Movies
Associate This: Girls
