As part of the 15 Days of 15switches, I want to answer some commonly asked questions about 15switches. Here are the top 15:
1. Why 15 Switches?
This is a very interesting question. I put a lot of thought into how many switches to use. I knew there needed to be an odd number of switches, that way there could be a middle switch. A 1×1 board obviously wouldn’t work out, but 3×3 also seemed a little too small. 3×5 was perfect because it allowed for different patterns which made level design easier. I also think 15switches has a nice ring to it.
2. Are You Going to Add More Levels?
Yes I most definitely am. I’m actually planning on routinely updating 15switches hopefully once a week. That will include things like more level, bug fixes and performance enhancements.
3. iOS or Android?
Right now 15switches is only for iOS. I was heavily inspired by the design and feel of different iOS exclusive apps so I wanted to stay true to them by having an iOS exclusive launch.
4. Are You Planning On Bringing it to Android?
Yes. I don’t quite know when I’ll have it ready for Android but it is definitely coming. Make sure to follow my social media to know exactly when.
5. I Can’t Find Any of the Hidden Messages You Talked About
Ok I guess this technically isn’t a question, but I’ll comment on it anyway. These messages are very well hidden. Click on buttons you don’t think you need to click on and pay close attention to level design. That is all I will say.
6. Who Helped to Make This App?
Novelty Apps, at least for the time being, is a one man show. I’ve done all the programming, music, graphic design, marketing, the whole shebang. And I’ve enjoyed every second of it 🙂
8. The Music is So Soothing, Where Can I Download It?
Right now all the music for my apps can only be found in the apps. I’ve really want to start publishing the music I create for the games because I really love making music. Let me know what you think about this idea in the comments!
9. Are You Planning On Making More Games or Just Improving 15switches?
I love making games. Like I really love the whole process of coming up with an idea, designing the app, formulating the game mechanics, music, marketing, everything. So I really totally keep on making new games. However, like I mentioned before, I will also prioritize updating 15switches.
10. How Many People Are Playing 15switches?
15switches is my most successful app so far. However I still think it has more potential to grow. So you could help me out, if you enjoyed the game, please share it. Thanks!
11. How Helpful are the Hints?
I designed the hints so that if you’re thinking really hard, they will be the perfect amount of information to get the solution. However they won’t tell you exactly what to do. They’re just hints after all.
12. What Am I Doing?
I’m making apps, I don’t know what you’re doing
13. How do You Beat __ Level?
14. What Happened to Question 7?
Don’t worry, no number is left behind.
7. What the?
This is the exact feeling you have when playing 15switches.
15. Why Do You Love the Number 15 so much?
You have to admit 15 is a pretty great number. It’s a multiple of 5 and of 3 which is pretty awesome. I wish it was also divisible by two though.
I hope you enjoyed this FAQ!
