I wrote it from scratch in C and used the (open source) Bullet Physics library. > Did you do all the work, art, music? Yes. I'm a bit of a jack of all trades ;) > What made you decide on pay what you want? I wanted to try IAPs. But locking features down would hurt the game. Especially given its create and share functionality, which benefits from having many users contribute content. PWYW "solves" these issues and seems relatively untried in the app stores. > We talk about devs charging decent money for their work. How has the IAP performed. Not to be to specific. Are you happy with the result? I charge exactly what the app is worth to you, couldn't get more decent than that. Are people paying? Some. (Thank you!) Am I making minimum wage? No. Will I survive? Yes, I'm extremely frugal. > What cause the app to tip? Was it marketing, interviews, luck? Would it be presumptuous of me to suggest that the quality of the game played a role? Making it free helped too. > How long did it take? Were you working on it exclusively? I'm a full time indie dev. I worked exclusively on the game for almost a year and a half. > How are your other apps doing, do you have any? My first game (in my current solo constellation) was 2015's Odd Bot Out. It's pay to play and has done better than Mekorama (so far).
