This may only be the second news release for Jet Fighter Neon, but the project is a lot further along than you might expect. For the past week and a half, Neon has been in beta testing. After the first round of beta tests, we got some really awesome feedback, and pulled the game back to make some really big changes.
I’m happy to note that most of the large changes have been completed and Neon is re-entering the beta testing phase for the second time. What this means for you is that I’m confident that the game will be completed soon, and am ready to announce a release date for the game.
I am planning on releasing the game out of beta testing on November 20th, 2015. I acknowledge that this is a rather short release schedule, considering that development officially started on the game about 3 or 4 weeks ago. There are a few reasons for this short development schedule.
First, I wanted to push myself to see how quickly I could develop a decent quality game using Unity. This is mostly a personal attainment thing. Secondly, I wanted to publish this game to take advantage of a free advertising offer that was extended to me on Amazon. I could have used that offer for a pre-existing app, but I wanted to compare the progress of a new game with advertising against my existing games without advertising.
