Reviews, interviews & *gasp* news
Following on from the theme of last month's newsletter, New Star Soccer mobile continues to set the world alight, garnering rave reviews from everyone that comes into contact with the game - even non-football fans! Twitter is alight with people calling the game a drug, and they can't kick the habit! It is currently the no.1 iPhone sports game in the UK and after witnessing its rise up the charts even the great Edge-Online asked me for an interview. (I know, little old me, plugging away for 10 years and I finally get a break!) I also did an interview for the JoyPod podcast, so you can actually hear me talk about NSS!
But it's not just Edge showing an interest. Reviews are coming in thick and fast, all positive, and the national newspapers are even picking up on the game. For the full list of reviews head over to newstarsoccer.com but here is a brief round-up:
Eurogamer - App of the Day
"The best football game on mobile and tablets."
Gametrailers - App of the Day
"It's an essential download."
Kotaku - App of the Day
"The perfect marriage of quickplay phone game,
football management sim and RPG."
PocketGamer - Gold Award
"You'll suffer the highs and lows of its simply presented matches
with the grin of a true addict plastered across your face." 9/10
"It's a wonderful little game but it will eat your life."4.5/5
"A pristine game." 5/5
The Sunday Times
"So engrossing you'll be playing until your
phone battery dies." 5/5
In other exciting news, New Star Soccer 5 is coming to Steam on PC and Mac! With just 8 days to go until the Euros kick off I am frantically trying to prepare everything in time. I will reveal more details when I can but I am hoping that existing customers will be able to get activation keys for the Steam version.
You may think that with all this success for NSS I am having a good year. Well life couldn't be better because on April 19th my wife Lucy gave birth to a beautiful bonny boy, weighing in at 9lbs 1oz! Needless to say, the lack of sleep is having an effect on production but I honestly couldn't be happier.
