A couple of months after the release of American Angst for Steam back in October, I finally published a MacOS version via itch.io back in February, as well as an Android version on GooglePlay last month.
Personally, the Android smartphone app is my favourite experience of the game. I somehow envisioned that’s the way it should be played in the first place, and I also was able to remove some clutter from the game (like the frightfully long and boring intro).
The downloads so far are in the three digits which I am totally happy with. After all, it is a text-heavy game, I had no marketing budget and it is my first attempt into game design.
The feedback has been constructively critical over all, but there has been some praise as well which I’m copypasting below. So if you stumbled upon this devlog and are thinking about downloading it, read the following and give it a try!
