Beta Testers required for Abduction 2

Today was the day Abduction! reached 2 million downloads, so it seems appropriate to announce the sequel will soon be ready for a closed beta.

Applications have now closed. Thanks to everyone who applied, you should hear back from us within the next week or so.


Abduction! downloaded 1 million times!

I just noticed that Abduction! has broken 1 million downloads today 🙂 Coincidently Gem Miner broke the half million download mark on exactly the same day! Thanks to every one of those million, especially to those who contributed feedback or bought the full version – I hope that your input will help me to provide more games you want to play.

I wish I had realised this was coming up and I would have done something special like a new character to celebrate. Maybe I can do that for the 2 millionth download?!


Stats update

A while back I posted download stats for abduction and it’s about time for an update. This came about because I was really interested to see the stats Firemint published for Flight Control and there are no reliable figures for downloads on Android.

You can see that download figures are still healthy as a result of the expanding Android user base. In particular there is a definite boost around November when the Motorola Droid was released (although this was also when Gem Miner was released, so may also be due to cross-promotion).

Green lines are total downloads, blue lines are active installs:

Abduction! (Free)

Abduction! World Attack (Paid)

Gem Miner (Free)

Gem Miner: Dig Deeper (Paid)

Milky Milky (Free)
