(Coffee & Swiping is a news-y/blogg-y article about the mobile gaming industry and everything in between. It’s basically an excuse for Noen to ramble on about anything and everything that has to do with nothing.)
Goooooood flipping morning/afternoon/evening SNAPP Family!! You know what that means. I’m back bitches!! I figured I’d start off the new year with doing a little rambling before I got back into anything. It’s been awhile since I’ve done one of these. So it’s time to pour a cup of coffee and see what the fuck has been going on in the world the past week or so……
First off, I hope everyone had a happy and safe holiday with tons of new games to play. As for me, it was a nice break from everything. Granted, I was still poking around on social media, messing with our YouTube channel, and doing some work behind the scenes on the website. I still call it a break though. I also had the kids home for two weeks, so that’s been a challenge. Luckily, they are becoming gamers themselves, so it’s been fun showing them new games and playing along with then.
I know I was hoping to come back with the whole “SNAPPZILLA 2.0” thing, but of course things take longer and always cost more than expected, so unfortunately there’s a little delay on some of the new visual stuff. We’re still hoping to have a lot of things done by the end of this month. It’s a bummer because we kind of skipped out on our GOTY stuff to get a lot of the new things finished. It’s early, so we may still put out something for 2017.
We definitely have a lot planned for this year though. I wish I could tell you everything that we have going on, but we have to keep certain things kind of a secret due to………. Anyway, I’m really excited for this year. I’ve actually started working on a home office so I can focus a lot more of my time on the company. Things have honestly been getting out of hand the past 6 months or so. I’m hoping that we can start adding some new people to the family to help with reviews/content. It’s tough trying to keep up with how fast things have progressed when there’s only 2 of us. If anyone reading would love to volunteer some help, I’d love to talk to you. Hell, it can be writing, artwork, promoting, whatever. Just shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Alright. Enough of that stuff….
There hasn’t been a whole lot going on in the industry lately with the App Store being shut down for the holidays. It’s been pretty quiet. There’s been a ton of great sales and a lot of “Best of” articles floating around. Oh, and that Logan Paul dude I guess filmed a dead body and made fun of it. So, we have that dumpster fire still out there. I still can’t believe those guys are so popular.
Anyway, hopefully things will start picking up in the next week or so. Regardless, I’ve got a lot of games that I played over the holidays to talk about. We’ll still be working under the hood on a lot of 2.0 stuff, so bare with us if things are a little wonky or light over the next couple of weeks. We’ll get everything ironed out this month though. Until then, we’ll keep on swiping………..
SNAPPy New Year everyone! Here’s to 2018!!
