Cannot believe this!

It has happened again. The submission for Episode 2 came back rejected due to a corrupted binary. We could blame this on bad luck, we could blame this on conspiracy, personal incompetence or even our dear friend Santa, but what we cannot do is stand by watching the hard work we have put in Minigore and its updates bounce around in what seems like an infinite loop between us and Apple. These updates should have been out there for you guys to play ages ago! We realize we can't change the past, but we can shape the future and that's exactly what we are going to do now.

We want to give you the possibility to play the new Episodes ahead of time before they are released on the AppStore and contribute to the development of Minigore in a way that goes beyond commenting on the blog. We are going to do that by opening up 99 new spots for beta-testers. This is not going to make up for all the delay in bringing out the update, but I am sure it is going to make 99 Minigore fans very happy. We want to show you that despite any hardships and regardless of the number of rejections, Mountain Sheep is holding onto the promises made.


So send us the UDID of your iPhone or iPod along with information of what device you have, how much you play and your age to the address above. Active members of the Minigore blog, top Minigore players based on the online leaderboard and Touch Arcade's Minigore thread contributors will get a priority, so make sure to mention who you are if you are involved in one of the aforementioned.

Lastly, Episode 2 has been re-submitted and every measure taken to ensure it's free from corruption. We are also trying to arrange a fast lane for it in the approval process.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Omg minigore is still my fave app... and i still love you for trying... WHERE DO I SEND THE UDID AND SHTUFF TO?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Fingers crossed for the next one.
    but hey, on the bright side it only took them 2 weeks to tell you it was rejected.

    I'm glad you guys are keeping us informed tho.

    ReplyDelete
  14. my bad found it im not that stupid...

    ReplyDelete
  15. Its cannot happening! Apple is BAD!
    But you guys are great and thanks for yours work :)

    ReplyDelete

    it sucks that it was rejected...
    it should get through this time :(

    ReplyDelete
  17. Sent Mail too, thanks for the beta test opportunity

    ReplyDelete
  18. This isn't Apple's fault. If you didn't send them dodgy apps this would never have happened. I hope this time you haven't given them a dodgy app so it has a chance of being approved.

    If you really "cared" about the fans you'd launch this on Cydia!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Bad news it got rejected again.
    Good news that you're opening new beta spots.

    I'll apply as well.

  20. My name is Zack,
    I currently own an ipod touch running 3.0
    My UDID is: c613fb39bc88b120075acc563bdc094e3801408f
    I am always on my ipod, from when I wake up, until i go to bed. I am 18 years old. I have been checking multiple times a day on your blog for updates since i bought your application. I also am following your tweets from my twitter account, and check that regularly. At the moment, I have all my applications on my ipod lined up in the order I play them the most, and minigore is first on the list. I have gotten at least 10 on my friends to purchase this game after i recognized the great gameplay it holds. My twitter name is zackz115. I also have a lot of experience beta testing for the ipod, and other devices, if that helps at all.

    I AM NOT JUST TRYING TO GET THE UPDATE!! I want to help a great game like this advance to a point where it will be on the top 5 apps.

    You can email me back with a response at:
    Zackz115@yahoo.com

    ReplyDelete
  21. Any news on when we will hear back if chosen? I'm so excited!

    ReplyDelete
  22. My email was sent... im so excited now!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Sent an email, real same it didn't get submitted this time. Will have to wait and see if I get selected as a Beta tester. :D

    ReplyDelete
  24. Wow I have never seen so many people upset at the developers but when it comes time to get something free everyone who has made a comment is in a round about way kissing tail to get to preview the game, "oh I hope I get picked, you guys are so great, keep up the good work, I'm so excited,I'm not trying to get a free update I'm just so amazing I'll make your game better with my input!" holy crap! Bunch of winny sappy chicks. Minigore is my favorite game and honestly I'll wait till it comes out the right way. It's like this you know when your really hungry and as time passes the hunger increases and the longer you wait the better the food taste once you get it, well that's what I think of minigore. Once that bad boy comes out it's going to taste mighty fine. Anyway guys grow a sack and stop being such gay holes and just wait like everyone else.

    ReplyDelete
  25. ^^ ok, so essentially you want NO beta testers?
    thats fine.. we'll just keep watching minigore get rejected if bugs happen to slip through

    but hey, its your call right..

    ReplyDelete
  26. "infinite loop between us and Apple"

    bwahaha. I get it. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Aye... That sucks a lot. Makes no sence why they did that, but, of course you got the report of what was wrong.

    I hope I get to be apart of the beta. If not, I look forward to seeing the new episodes!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Email sent :)
    I hope to get to be part of it, when will we all know?

    ReplyDelete
  29. i sent an email. Waiting patiently and looking forward to all the updates

    ReplyDelete
  30. You KNOW I signed up.

    If anyone needs to know your UDID *don't tell your UDID to anyone to anyone you don't trust!* then go into iTunes, click on the summary tab for your device, and click on the "Serial Number" are so it changes to "Identifier (UDID)"

    ReplyDelete
  31. I keep sending in my e-mail from my yahoo account to beta@mountiansheep.net but it keeps saying that there isn't a domain by that name. Am I sending it to the right place?

    ReplyDelete
  32. adrolak, you've spelled mountaINsheep incorrectly, it's "ai" not "ia"
    At least it didn't take a moth to be rejected this time. I've sent in an email with my details, hopefully I'll be chosen =] (how can you guys say no to your #1 Jamaican fan?!)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Just a question. Why do you guys need my UDID?

    ReplyDelete
  34. Spookd13 here..

    Omg i can't believe apple..that sucks..

    Anyway i've sent in my info too and i'm looking forward to the update or beta if i'm one of the lucky 99..hopefully i'll be chosen along with Slone xD

    (adding to the list that Slone started..how can you guys say no to your #1 Italian fan?!)

    ReplyDelete
  35. I hope I get accepted being as I asked not too long ago XD If I don't then I just have bad luck I guess.

  37. can't wait for episode 2!!! i hope to join the beta!!!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Sent you an email. :)

    @Dark Evil: They need your UDID so they can transfer the beta versions to you if you are accepted into the program.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Thanks for the opportunity to beta test such a successful and great game!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Swine flu kid: way to play the guilt card. Could u be any MORE of an ass about this? If you want it that bad restore your iPod/phone and go and BUY it instead of whining to a group of gamers who actually support the games they enjoy and try to aid the company of MountainSheep

    ReplyDelete
  41. I have another theory as to why the update keep getting rejected...

    You are opening another 99 beta tester places, this means you currently have 1.

    No wonder they keep getting rejected!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Hey hey, calm down. SFK said to put it on Cydia, which is legal, NOT Installous, which is illegal. Cydia would be a great idea, since the Cydia store offers secure payment and unfiltered, instantly-accepted publishing and updates. I do hope SFK isn't one of those kids who pirates EVERYTHING and confused Cydia and Installous, though. (Note to Mountain Sheep: if it turns out he does pirate apps remember to report his UDID to Apple, if you have it.)

    But SFK is on the wrong, too. He apparently only read the words "Rejected" and "again". MiniGore isn't dodgy, if it were it wouldn't have ever been accepted. Call me a conspiracy theorist, but Apple has a pattern of accepting all major companies' apps instantly and inventing bullshit excuses for indy developers. And how did it take 2 weeks for apple to realize it was a corrupted binary? While The Sims 3 and other flagship apps crash like a drunk driver on an autobahn?

    Wow. I write long posts. Well, to finish, I'm all for selling it in the Cydia Store (I'd pay another $0.99 for it). But hell no to Pirates. Pirates should be thrown back into Somalia.

    ReplyDelete
  43. wow you guys really are having some bad luck. I love the game and love what you have planned for it. I just hope we get to see the fruits of your labour in the near future.

    ReplyDelete
  44. also sent in details - really hope the update goes through this time! Got some friends quite excited for the next version!

    ReplyDelete
  45. How long until you are done with co op?

    ReplyDelete
  46. Wow...apple rejected it twice, that really sucks for us and you guys...but i sent you guys an E-mail about the beta testing!!! I really hope to get chosen...

    ReplyDelete
  47. Ahhh darn it :( On iPod just checking the blog before I go to bed, lol - Earliest I can get on a PC and submit an email will be some time tomorrow night :P

    Try keep a spot open for me ;)

    I was one of the guys that applied for the original BETA before the game was released and missed out :'(

    ReplyDelete
  48. i vote we kidnap steve jobs. lol

    i sent in my email. And for thoses of you who dont know where to send it (i wasn't going to tell you so theres less competition, but I'm going to be nice) the picture in the middle of the post that says
    beta@mountainsheep.net or something like that

    ReplyDelete
  49. I am rooting for u guys. Hopefully u guys get the update through and make many people happy. All hail Minigore.

    ReplyDelete
  50. That Swine Flu Kid looks like a faggot

    ReplyDelete
  51. Yall should drop this game under gameloft or Ea or something major like that one dude said they dont even try to screw majors and fuck indies through the ass , no offence to chillingo

    ReplyDelete
  52. I bought this game, otherwise I wouldn't be complaining that promised updates take so long.

    ReplyDelete
  53. hey guys i cannot believe this. I was and still am looking forward to episode 2 keep up the good work

    ReplyDelete
  54. That's a bad joke, and unfortunately it's on you guys. Apple can't be blamed this time, so please make sure that you submit bug-free version in the future.

    And please, people: Don't offend Swine Flu Kid. He's right about these things.

    ReplyDelete
  55. when will episode3 will released? winter 2010? this sucks big time...

    ReplyDelete

  61. I want to be a beta tester!! =)
    I hope so. (so I just send my mail)

    ReplyDelete
  62. Episode 2 doesn't even exist, it's all a big lie from Mountain Sheep.
    Those "99 beta spots" will go to 99 "active players" that Mountain Sheep made up just to keep the myth alive.

    Why? To make money of course, blaming it all on Apple so people feel bad for them and buy the game and donate.

    I don't know for how long this will go on or how many people will fall for this but if you don't believe me, just look at the facts and wait until the end (whenever that'll be).

    ReplyDelete
  63. How do you know this?

    ReplyDelete
  64. @MythBusteR,

    I remeber seeing a video of ep. 2 on touch arcade a while ago, looked pretty real to me...

    ReplyDelete
  65. @MythBusterR

    Uhh... yeah. I only buy into conspiracies that can be proven. And at all logical, for that manner.

    ReplyDelete
  66. @Mythbuster

    If your gonna make lies come up with logical ones.

    First of all why would mountain sheep do that to make money... they would make a lot more for creating an update.

    Second, people dont by games to make updates come out.

    ReplyDelete
  67. When will the selected BETA testers be notified/announced?

    ReplyDelete
  68. Check it out Nonbelievers!!!!:

    ReplyDelete
  69. Hey! U should put it on installous the app jailbreakers use to get free apps. I can use it but I don't. U should post it on it early so we can get it without the apple approvle system. That should cover the beta testing any questions tarkinater@gmail.com thx

    ReplyDelete
  70. ^^
    thats the worst idea ever...

    no developer would EVER do something that stupid. honestly..

    btw, they have chosen whos in the Beta. the list is on the TouchArcade forums.. and im in! :D yey

    ReplyDelete
  71. For fuck sake. This plain sucks. Again, this is not an issue with Apple, but with the developers of the game. How can you screw it up twice? ARRRRGGGGGGHHHHHH

    ReplyDelete
  72. check out zackz115's link. episode 2! looks awsome!!!

    ReplyDelete
  73. I think they like TA too much. They got a list a few hours ago: http://forums.toucharcade.com/showpost.php?p=528867&postcount=147 .

    @Anon. (Installous Idea)
    That is a terrible idea. The app could possibly be released for a fee on Cydia. That was my original idea.

    Good luck for getting a place.. SFK

    ReplyDelete
  74. Waiting, waiting. Hope get success for this submit.

    ReplyDelete
  75. I just hope that the beta tester will do their JOB and not only playing...they are there to TEST the game and watch every details! Not only play the game for having it before everyone! And I know what I mean! A friend of mine I've been a beta tester of Prince of Persia, and he got to do the same level a lot of time trying ot find bugs and error!

    ReplyDelete
  76. I've been let down so many times I can almost agree with mythbuster, no way they can screw up this many times. But I still have that little bit of hope that I will get that update...

    ReplyDelete
  77. thats only the TA list of testers theres 44 peopke on it

    ReplyDelete
  78. I frogot to include my device in my email but i'm on an ipod touch 2nd gen running 3.1

    ReplyDelete
  79. Wait are those all the beta testers approved? Theres not 99 on there is there?

    ReplyDelete
  80. In the toucharcade post there are like 30 people, because those are all the members of toucharcade that got in

    THe minigore blogspot(here) is still being gone through i think

    ReplyDelete
  81. yep they havent anounced minigore blogspot people yet.


    Hope i get in!!!!11

    ReplyDelete
  82. I just checked, and noticed that MINIGORE CHOSE ABOUT 30 something testers (including me!!!) from touch arcade. They are reserving other spaces they said for minigore blog, ipod touch fans, and some other italian ipod website.

    Good luck to all.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Holy... I didn't think about all the TA and iPTF members. Hopefully my blog comment name will get me in!

    And to MS, my iPTF username is "Retro349"

    NO SPAM FROM OTHER COMMENTERS PLEASE

    ReplyDelete
  84. Ok cool so I still may get in (I hope)

    ReplyDelete
  85. Looks like a lot of peps on minigore blog are gonna be testers if i read right. It may not be everyone but most of the people on this blog are gonna get a slot. Hope ones me. All hail minigore.

    ReplyDelete
  86. MINIGORE IS THE BEST GAME EVERRRR I CAN YOU PLEASE PUT IT ON THE 360! WHY ISNT IT #1 IN THE APP STORE!

    ReplyDelete
  87. I hope your right VROOM99
    good luck haha
    We can only wait and find out.
    I wonder if they were able to make any progress on that "fast lane"
    I hope they have but at the same time, it's apple they're dealing with. Apples whole process is a big mystery

    ReplyDelete
  88. People who really supports MiniGore are here and not on the other sites. Why don't U send a beta to each of us ? Don't U understand that we all love this game ? Why should we be there if not ?
    Cheers

    ReplyDelete
  89. I agree chusky but others should have a chance too.

    ReplyDelete
  90. There are hardcore minigore fans on both sites Chusky. I don't use touch arcade cuz i'm not really into forums but i support minigore all the same.

    People on the TA forums already know if they're on the list or not. I hope the minigore blog peeps find out soon.

    ReplyDelete
  91. As much as I hate having to wait I think we should all seriously relax a bit and just give the devs time to work it out! Patience is virtue guys!

    ReplyDelete
  92. aw man, I didn't even hear about the beta testing until this morning when I saw it on the twitter feed... I guess I need to start following the blog more closely.

    ReplyDelete
  93. The devs are probably waiting for all the spots for the beta to be filled or wait til saturday til they show the list of testers

    ReplyDelete
  94. Touch arcade has a list, check there. I didn't get an email but have beta access there. Episode 2 is awesome, worth the wait guys

    ReplyDelete
  95. Oh my god! The temptation is killing me! I sooo hope I get in good luck to everyone! (but mostly me... lol jk)

    ReplyDelete
  96. Hello I`m an apple worker and I like you to know that I`ve checked up on history of Minigore`s update submissions and I can assure you this is now Apple`s fault , but the result of Mountain Sheep rushing to get this update released for you fans, but I can assure you it is not apples fault, I heard one of you say we release Major companies games without even testing it , but I can tell you those apps do not crash as much as Minigore did , we let an app be released if it works after reseting,syncing from computer, or reinstalling, these are the main things that we look for as solutions for apps that crash , but they rarely do, but minigore crashed more than we allow not meeting standards,it even shut down one of the test ipods.

    I hope the developers of this game do a better job of fixing these things and not accusing apple.

    Sincerely,Ronald

    ReplyDelete
  97. But why did it take you so long to tell them the app crashed?

    ReplyDelete
  98. Hmm it says on mountain sheeps twitter "We have picked a bit over 60 new beta testers so far. Last chance to send those applications in!"

    So who are the other testers? Or are they waiting till they've picked them all to reveal them? But then why did they announce touch arcade already? Ohhh te not knowing is driving me crazy I can't wait to find out!

    ReplyDelete
  99. Can you actually release a working update?
    I'm actually tired of waiting -__-
    I paid less than a pound for this game and I've waited nearly months for this update.
    I'm sick and tired of waiting around for you guys.
    No wonder you're out of the Top 25 now.

    ReplyDelete
  100. anonymas who said there apple,

    Your clearly a fake...
    I found about 5 grammar errors in that passage and the typo of "now" instead of "not"



    Dont bother listening to him.

    ReplyDelete
  101. Lol he sounds legit to me and your the one who spelled anonymous wrong, I agree wit the apple dude ,even if hes not he has good points, and who said you had to have very good grammar to work in apple

    ReplyDelete
  102. We are announcing the rest of the testers early next week.

    @ Anon:
    > "infinite loop between us and Apple"
    > bwahaha. I get it. ;)

    I'm glad someone did. :D

    @ Ronald, the Apple worker:
    We certainly don't want to blame everything on Apple. The developers (that's us) need to reduce the chances of crashing as much as possible, and that is what we have done to the extent our internal resources permit. We take full responsibility of all bugs that make it through our QA and we don't expect Apple to approve an app that is crashing extensively. What we do want to point out is there is room for improvement in the approval *process* itself. The key points being

    - The wildly varying duration of the approval process.
    - No reporting on the status of the submission (such as current place in the queue).
    - In case of any issues (including non-binary issues like unacceptable keywords), the binary must always be re-submitted from the beginning, causing it to fall to the back of the queue.

    The last point is particularly important. If you would like to have a chat about the process and for me to elaborate on this some more, fire up an e-mail from http://www.mountainsheep.net/index.php?catid=4 and I'll get back to you. :)

    @ Anon:
    Trust me, we don't do this on purpose. Making you sick and tired, and falling out of Top 25 is the last thing we want.

    ReplyDelete
  103. finally responded!

    ReplyDelete
  104. you guys should post news and answer the comments on what is supposed to be the " main " and " official " blog more often.

    ReplyDelete
  105. It's incredible how commenters on this blog have no respect about each other. Just look at how SFK got machine-gunned at for saying something sensible (although Minigore on Cydia doesn't interest me at all).

    Hoping to get a slot, although I'm probably not cool enough to get one, just like Google Wave invites. It's amazing to wonder where all those 100,000 invites went, because I know no one who got one. Incredible. Anyway, the whole Internet is lame.

    ReplyDelete
  106. Cna't wait till next week. I just have to live through Monday (possibly Tuesday Mabye Wensday) :D

    ReplyDelete
  107. Interesting how for a long time, nearly everyone was just Anonymous for some reason, now suddenly half the people have names o.O

    Oh well, hope i was picked - i submitted late, but that was a couple of days ago now. I was in consideration for the first wave of Beta testers (i believe seven spots?), but unfortunately didn't get in :(

    ReplyDelete
  108. Please pick me for the next wave of beta testers or I kill me

    ReplyDelete
  109. u guys shouldnt blame apple for them rejecting this app. you guys should blame the makers for not testing it well so that it can be approved

    ReplyDelete
  110. but we can blame them for taking ages to do so.

    ReplyDelete
  111. Anon: I realize our staffing hasn't grown at the same pace with the size of the community and we'd like to do a few more updates a week. We're working on it. :)

    Manutaust: I don't know anyone with a Wave invite either, but I sure would love to get one.

    ReplyDelete
  112. sorry guys. i wish this app could get the update and earn more fans. this app isnt even in the top 250 paid apps anymore. its sad this app had so much potential and people arent buying it because of no update.
    hey when is hardgore coming out. Make sure to come out with a bunch of features when you submit it instead of sending updates that dont get approved like you did with minigore. oh yeah and how muck does it cost.

    ReplyDelete
  113. TO boost sale do something with a popular app like doodle jump, knights' onrush, the shooting bear thing. or pocket god cause when the doodle jump concept was taken into pocket god, doodle jump skyrocketed into the top 25 paid apps. And you could also use a lite version of minigore. You did it with sway but that apps terrific(I have it) but not selling at all like this game in a few weeks without the update. Never raise the price. I dracula was number 1 untill they updated it and added two more bucks to the price people were turned off. Also if possible, add people from popular TV cartoon shows like south park and family guy or cartoonized versions of celebreties or supereroes like batman.Please add new villains soon. I am getting bored of just shooting furies.

    ReplyDelete
  114. please dont add other enemies unless you can explain them, and I really enjoy the furries. I would be mad if u added other characters that come as often as furries. The furries are a main idea in the game, please dont change that! Bosses might be a good idea, if you were to add a storymode. A story mode might be really cool.

    ReplyDelete
  115. @ anon
    how can there be alite version when there isn't much content to begin with you would pretty much he giving them the whole game

    ReplyDelete
  116. @Anon..
    You could only allow them to reach 1000 points?

    ReplyDelete
  117. I fully agree with Joey H.,
    there shouldn't be any other enemies!

    ReplyDelete
  118. Anon: I really want it to climb back up the charts again, too. Hardgore is coming out at a later time, but I can't say exactly when. Right now we are focusing all our efforts on Minigore.

    Anon: We have some good stuff in the works that we haven't announced yet that might have something do with a popular apps. :)

  119. Haven't played minigore in quite a while, last time I played I reached 16th worldwide, but now I'm 61th...

    I'm all for the Cydia Store idea, that's the very foundation of the Cydia store : independent apps that aren't bound by the authoritarian hold apple has on its appstore.
    I'm positive I'd be a good beta tester and would get into the list (a lot of experience and knowledge about programming, the iPhone and it's OS, and programming /for/ iPhoneOS. Also, I could help mountainsheep fend off cheap pirates.) so that's fine for me, too, Ima send an email as soon as I get access to my PC. (note: I'm helpless against ninja-pirates, though... Let's see if anybody gets what I'm talking about)

  120. A Boss? Episode 3? Dose that mean that there will be a bit of story in episode 3?

    ReplyDelete
  121. I think there should be more enemies but dont mix them with the furies, like a fury level and a zombie level and a ninja pirate(?) level. Then maybe you could have a challenge level where you mix them all together. I WANT CO OP REALLY BAD IT WILL BE SOOO MUCH FUN!

  122. if you now the app lux deluxe you will know that there are downloadable maps, (wich i think dont have to be approved by apple)so my question is could you do the same all new episodes as downlooadable content.
    Example: theres a point in the menu wich is only highlighted when a new update is available and you can just download it .
    and if the update doesnt work you delete the app and sync with itunes and than you can write give a comment to the update!
    is this realistic? i hope so

  123. Griffin, that's not what he meant. Nice try, though. To understand, you'd have to know quite something about "the scene"

  124. re - climbing the charts again
    I think it would be well funny if you introduced a pygmy from pocket god into Minigore with a dart blower instead of a machine gun.

    pocket god could add a furry to one of there islands in return

  127. I`m sorry Kimmo , but there is not much I can do to accelerate the apple verification process,but I myself can test it and tell you any bugs that you have in a much shorter time than the actual verification process , It is just that I cannot actually send out the update itself into the App Store because well that is not my position I just make sure the sound on the apps work and that they don`t freeze up when you play your own Library Music.

    Email me @ Ronald_Donavon@hotmail.com for anymore information if you want mt help I can give you my UDID, I can`t use my apple email because I cannot use that for uses other than for Apple Customer Service and I could get in trouble for testing an app for other purposes other than Sound Testing.

    I also noticed one of you say my grammar was to bad to be an apple employee? We don`t usually type out things we use the basic rules apple gives us , such as a link,or we just use a grammar program which I don`t use only at work.

    Sincerely,Ronald

  128. Tha'd be awesome to play this "never coming" episode 2 ! How long to we have to wait ? Where are the betas ? Talking about zombies and episode 4 but at this day we still wait for a legendary episode 2 ! Could U remind me the definition of a "vapor game" ? Why did U made Betas just for 99 players ? Don't U think that all the people who come here should get it ? Don't U think that all the people who sent U their UDID should get it too ? You said :" We want to give you the possibility to play the new Episodes ahead of time before they are released on the AppStore... I am sure it is going to make 99 Minigore fans very happy..."
    I say : LOL

    Made the beta testing! I'm stricken with glee. (awesome face)

    It's really quite an anomaly that all the top apps are joining together into a little club, all having crossovers with each other. I just wish MiniGore could return the favor.

    I will also now stop using my name in the blog comments, and use my shiny new TouchArcade forums name. If I remember to, LOL.

  130. Cunning Ronald. But not quite.

    Now you are asking to become a beta tester after convincing everyone that you work for Apple. I imagine it was quite simple to create a hotmail account that is not mentioned anywhere on the Internet. A personal email that cannot be found on any social networking site. Surely someone that works with computers would be using these sites?

    The first paragraph shows no knowledge on the operation of a complex environment such as the app store. Apps are published, not "sent". Also, if you are claiming that you deal solely with sound how can you suddenly find all the bugs, especially without any code. Unless you're some sort of uncompiling ninja? The last paragraph of what you just said makes no sense at all, it implies that Apple don't write anything down which is clearly a lie. How are rules a substitute for typing? How? And what is a grammar program - that you "DON'T use only at work"?

    I also doubt that any Apple employee would risk their position by offering to test the app outside the comforts of an Apple testing facility. Especially so publically on a blog providing a full name and a personal email.

    One last thing, no one in the world spells their last name "Donavon". Everyone except you seems to spell it "Donovon" but no doubt there will be yet another excuse to cover that up.

    I'm always looking out for this blog, good luck hammering the update through. You better pray to God that it actually works this time. I can't wait to play Episode 2.

    Lot's of Love,
    SFK ;)

  131. Swine Flu Kid = faggot , how r u gonna tell someone how to spell their name and maybe he doesnt wanna get fired , grammar programs such as "word" or w/e maybe and maybe he didnt want to be specific on what he does , so go masterbate like the faggot you are , and I hope u get the swine flu and die your 15 and you yourself have a hotmail , what a douche , I guess being from scotland explains your stupidness since your all drunks

  134. MINIGORE EPISODE 2 IS OUT!

    ReplyDelete
  135. @ Swine Flu Kid:

    Get over yourslef, groupie.

    I ACTUALLY know someone whose last name is Donavon, not Donovan. It was mispelled when his family imigrated from Ireland to N.Y.

    That shows you know nothing, idiot.

    I myself have more than one e-mail. A work e-mail and a personal e-mail.
    I use my work e-mail for Twitter, MySpace, Facebook, and any other social networking site, so if you were to look up my personal e-mail you wouldn't find it either on any such sites.

    Again, you lack brain cells.

    Complex enviroment of the appstore? EVERYTHING can be simplified. He just mentioned what his part in the approval process of applications was. 'Published' vs. 'sent', in this case they can be nearly similes. All that is, is just a case of choosing which word to use.

    Once again, you display you are useless.

    Oh, about bugs, which are really known as logic errors-yes, I'm a computer programmer-they can be found without using the actual code.
    The complier doesn't detect logic errors, hence the use of the name 'bugs'.
    They're almost always detected on execution of the program, in this case, Minigore.
    Any common person could detect a bug by simply playing the game.

    Again, you're a fool.

    The only thing the last paragraph implies is that they use templates for anything they have to report on. Programmers do the same, sort of.
    Its always best to re-use code you've already written, so you don't waste time writing something you could have simply copied and pasted.
    A grammar program you don't use at home could be an advanced spellcheck and sentence structure correcter.
    A piece of compiler programs we use detects syntax errors, syntax = grammar of writing code.

    About him publically doing this... well don't underestimate the stupidity of people.
    I believe he is the real deal, since I have knowledge of how Apple works, being an Apple fantic myself.

    So, Swine Flue Kid, stop being a groupie and do some research before you type, because you could be made to look like an idiot, like now.

  138. After playing the beta some more I think I would a change in the 3 clover system. Here is just a suggestion and open for debate and I apologize if it was already brought up. I would like to have a chance to earn back health by getting 3 clovers, then if I am at full health he would go into beast mode. It would be a nice "risk/reward" situation. If are on your last health, getting 3 clovers will keep you in the game longer than going into beast mode.

    Let me know what you think...I also posted this on the tester forum.

    Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  139. I see where your coming from but beast mode is better , but that would take away from the game a little , but even it out making you get probably 5 bandages or something in return for a health also making them hard to drop

    ReplyDelete
  140. @Ball Zach...I agree, beast mode is better with getting a quick point burst in mind, but the health option offers longer game play. Its tough to really decide either way.

    I guess if you offered the ability to re-up your health there really is no need for headband mode.

    ...What if beast mode also upped your life one step, you would get the best of both worlds.

    Let me know what you think.

  141. Pugway: This boss brings epic new gameplay with it, but no story yet.

    Anon: If we only wanted add stuff like new maps, downloading the updates directly from our server would be doable technically. We want to expand on the game modes, add bosses and fix bugs, and for that we need to go through the AppStore update route.

    Ronald Donavon: I understand. Are you specifically in a testing position or are you familiar with the tech on the API/code level? There are some audio-related bugs pending and I would love some input on those.

    Chusky: Hopefully you don't have to wait long anymore. Personally, I'm predicting Saturday and unless Apple manages to find something our QA has not been able to, it is going through. Most of the betas have been handed out (see the latest post on this blog).

    Vaporware (or game) is software that has not been released and is unlikely to ever get released. That hardly describes Minigore, but I understand your frustrations and believe me when I say the delay frustrates us as much as anyone.

    Betas are limited to 99 participants, because 100 devices is the limit for how many devices you can assign to one developer account (need to save one for us to be able to actually test the game ourselves on that account).

    I hope this clears some things up.

    The Reese's: We don't want to replace the beast mode with health, but we are considering other means of regaining health.

  142. @Kimmo

    I'm familiar with the tech on a code level, I'm not sure if you read my previous post, but I personally think I'd be a great addition to your beta testers.
    I'd be more prone to spot any bugs in gameplay, audio playback, and other things that Ronald mentioned.

    I sent an e-mail already, with a clip of my highest score, I'm not sure if you read it, but I do play Minigore extensively.

    Which brings me to another point: there's a bug in Openfeint.
    I'm not sure if anyone else has experienced it, but it never updated my highscores after they passed the 2000s point.
