Well, that was a surprise this morning when a friend of mine messaged me "Congrats on the greenlight." Whaaaa? What was he talking about? Checked the Steam Greenlight page - holy crap! The Legend of Iya was indeed greenlit! That's crazy-good news!
The contract with my musician - Magnus has been signed and is now good to go!
As GameMaker Studio 1.2 landed yesterday, it meant another round of corrections and rewrites on the code, and I still can't get the YYC machine-code compiler to not choke on my source, but I opened a trouble ticket with the YoYo guys, and that might get resolved soon. As it is - even the regular 1.2 compiler is now able to make my code run about 10 times faster.
Ouya port's been a bit of a problem though - it seems to lag quite a bit more than I expected, considering the game runs super-fast on Xperia Play - an underpowered pre-Tegra phone from 2 years ago. But hey! I didn't do any of the resource optimization yet - so that will get fixed one way or another.
Anyway - cheers guys!
PS: A friend of mine is running a Kickstarter for a double-pack of his games. The games look fun, and the KS goal is modest - maybe check'em out?
