It is hard to believe that 1 year ago today I submitted the incorporation papers for 84 North Studios Inc. I want to be able to say that a lot has happened since then, but it doesn’t exactly feel that way. I fell just short of my goal to have 1 app in each major app store by year’s end… my iOS app is still in development and still has quite a bit of time to go until it’ll be ready.
However, I think this next year will be much more productive and will be filled with many more accomplishments. Over the last few months I have been feeling a lot more motivated than I was in the first couple of months since quitting my full time job last year. I think I was in a partial vacation mode, which finally wore off sometime around this April. Also, this second year is starting off with 2 web apps that are more than half-way done, so I’ve got a bit of a good head start.
My main goal for this year is to not only complete the iOS app I had hoped to finish in year 1, but also to release a console game. Microsoft has a pretty cool program for independent developers to release downloadable games on XBOX Live. And since it is part of my Windows Phone developer account, I think I’ll take advantage of the opportunity.
