Happy New Year, everyone!
Some exciting news today, as I mentioned in my 2023 recap I've decided to remove ads from all my mobile games! So there's never been a better time to download! All my mobile games are available on both Google Play and the App Store!
"But Blit Blat, without ads how do you make any money?"
"Then why remove ads?"
A very good question! Well, there are several reasons; the ads never made me much money in the first place, there's constantly new laws and regulations around ads being brought in and, as a player I've never much liked games with ads in either, so it's a bit hard to justify inflicting something on my players I don't like myself!
I've also always been very conscious of mine and other's privacy, so none of the ads I did display were targeted (which probably contributed to the lack of money!) which is also why none of my games or website feature any sort of cookies or analytics tracking whatsoever! Removing ads completely will only help further protect people's privacy, something I'm all for!
In other news, it's become clear the game I wanted to release for Pixel Day '24, The Gauntlet (as first mentioned here) won't be done in time. So instead I've decided to revive an old game I've been toying with on and off for years, called Death To The Humans!
You play as an invading alien fleet trying to kill all 8 billion (that's 8,000,000,000!!) humans on Earth. But this is no ordinary idle clicker - expect the humans to fight back! I've wanted to make this game for ages and giving myself a hard deadline of January 23rd will hopefully be motivating! Can I finish it by then? Here's hoping!
