Joe, I just want to congratulate you on the amazing work you have done on The Lost City - it is really a work made with love, and it shows at any moment during the game, from the menu screen to the object icons. Stunning. Also the season idea is crazy - as it obviously required a lot of work to edit the scenes for the season change - and so well executed. I see the game is already doing great, but I am sure this will be another great success also on the long term, because it has more value than 90% of the stuff in the App Store, and people recognize it.
A note for Joe and those not finding the game - in some countries, the name of the game has been localized. So we have an Italian iTunes account and the game appeared there as "La Citta' Perduta". I am not sure if this is a good idea (to localize the title), as it makes marketing so much more difficult and users are nowadays used to access a game by its English title. To find the game, I looked for Grisly Manor, then looked at all the apps made by Fire Maple Games, and then I discovered why I was not finding it.
On the other hand, I understand that in those countries where English is not spoken or read well (including Italy), people that do find the game might be more attracted if the title is in Italian. So I understand it is a tough choice.
By the way, I have been playing the game on my iPad 1, and looks and runs beautifully. $1.99 or even the weekend sale of $0.99 are really incredibly low prices for a game like this.
Well, I added a 5 star rating in the Italian App Store and I will soon do the same in the small Icelandic store ;)
