Midnight Delivery – Important Game Update

Midnight Delivery has now been around three months since we globally launched Midnight Delivery and now it is time for an update.

Summary of Changes:

  • Change of monetization – Demo And Paywall
  • Change of skin unlocks – Star requirements
  • “Don’t Be A ****”
    • Anyone having spend money will be getting the premium access
    • Anyone who have already played more than the demo will have temporary premium access
  • Quality of life improvements
    • Interaction changes to avoid accidental mistakes
    • Skins are now changeable during a level
    • Hint-awareness

The amount of revenue that Midnight Delivery has generated since its release has been underwhelming, to say the least.

As such we have decided to switch our approach, from a free-to-play model to one employing a paywall. Granted, “paywall” sounds worse than it actually is.

We do this because we believe Midnight Delivery is not suitable for a free-to-play model, due to its deterministic game design. Our previous approach of displaying ads when requesting a hint were not as attractive a service as we initially thought.

Those of you who have spent your hard-earned money on Midnight Delivery until now, your money will not be lost. You will have access to the game’s full content after the update.

Those of you have have completed more than 20 levels before the update, will also have access to the game’s full content, unless you reinstall the game.

Additional changes that will ship with the update will be a new skin selection screen, which doesn’t require you to leave your current game, an ads-free hint system and a series of quality-of-life improvements such as subtle in game notifications and updates to the interaction scheme.

We would also like to give a big thank you, to all our players who have contributed with levels through our level editor. We have received more than 100 levels. Some of them are brilliantly designed, a few of which we’re still struggling to complete.

We hope you will enjoy these changes.

Not Even Entertainment Dev Blog is now LIVE!

Hello, hello internets, girls and boys, dudes and dudettes, humans and otherwise!

Over here at Not Even Entertainment, we have seen it fit to cobble together a basic WordPress theme so that we can spew into the Internet ether, some of the things that are going on, and will be going on, with our little game development endeavor.

We’ll do our very best to give you some quick glimpses into the various stages of the development process. Maybe we can clear up some things for those already interested in game design and development.

We’ll also use this blog to let you know of interesting related things that are happening in and around Aalborg, as far as game development is concerned.

Right now we’re putting the finishing touches on our first ever release called Midnight Delivery. A pretty cool mobile puzzle game, even if we do say so ourselves.
