Another 'minor' set back

Well, we've had some feedback from an XNA reviewer, Richard Williams (Developmental Games), on Infans Solaris' latest build, and in his opinion the game, as it is at the moment, would fail submission. Certain things like having the game crash when pulling a memory unit out of the console whenever the player is promoted to select a storage device is cause for a fail and so the coders are already fixing these bugs, nothing we can't easily solve though thankfully.
The game title may also have to undergo a change as Latin isn't allowed within a XBLA Indie Games' title, this seems to be a bit of a hit or miss affair though and 'could' be alright in the end without the change, we'll have to wait and see.

These bugs aside all the reviewers so far on the App Hub site have enjoyed the game's different modes, variety of weapons, looks and it's overall gameplay. Thanks to everyone for their feedback as well as anyone else that's reviewed the game so far.

Already we've learned a lot about what to do and what not to do for when "Other World" is due for release. Despite the hiccups, this has still be an awesome way for us all to learn what to look out for and how to better prioritise what we need to fix before sending a game off to it's final review, hopefully it'll be a bit smoother next time :D

At very worst this is likely to delay the release of "Infans Solaris" by another week so we'll keep you posted on when the game will be out.
