The big news around here this week is that our latest project, Pretty Good MahJongg 2.0, shipped last Thursday.
Not surprisingly, this was a major update to Pretty Good MahJongg, a game successfully developed with Goodsol Development. The original version was a hit, and I expect that this version will do even better, especially given the scope of the new features. I will probably describe the development of PGMJ in more detail later, but in the meantime, you can read about its history in this post from A Shareware Life.
After months of development, including a long beta test, we finally released the game. It is a wonderful feeling to complete a game and be able to be proud of the quality of the final product. Since it is published online, using the shareware model, it is not quite the same as seeing a box on the store shelves, but there are not the weeks or months of waiting, either. Nevertheless, despite still being in the recovery phase, I find that I really enjoy playing the game.
