Hi everyone,

I'm the creator of Nano Empire and Friends of the Prince, and it's time to announce my third game!

A Few Minutes of Glory is a fast, text-based real-time strategy game meant to capture the essence of Age of Empires 2. It emphasizes strategy over tactics: you choose what resources to gather and what units to build, and battles are handled automatically. Create a custom civilization and see how long it lasts...

As always, I want it to be fully accessible with VoiceOver.

See the full details on the App Store, where it's available for pre-order at a discount: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/a-few-m … 1&mt=8

I'm also looking for beta testers. Please send an email to [email protected] if you're interested.

Thanks!

Awesome, sounds like a great little time killer.
And thank you so much for taking the time to make it accessible!

Well Ted, it sure looks like there's been uh, quite a bit of violence around here
"aaoh, that violence was terrible'!"
Yeah it was, pretty bad.

Sounds awesome! It's so huge pity that i'm under 18 and i don't have a credit card to buy the thing... And my parents don't like the idea of buying games at all... sad

wow this sounds amazing! I've enjoyed both previous titles myself and really look forward to playing it.

I have a rotten cold at the second so probably wouldn't be much use beta testing wise, but I'll definitely be up for playing the game as soon as it comes out, and if my cold abaits soon enough I wouldn't mind testing either.

You know I probably shouldn't say this but, YOLO! or what ever.
This game's title totally sounds like a sexual innuendo.
Which makes me just want to play it more, actually...

Hi.
I don't have the time to betatest at the moment, but I have preordred the game, looking very much forward to check this out.

Best regards SLJ.
If you like the post, then please give it a thumps up.
Feel free to contact me privately if you have something in mind. If you do so, then please send me a mail instead of using the private message on the forum, since I don't check those very often.
Happy gaming... :D

Preordered as well, this one sounds awesome, even if I don't get to beta test.

According to the ap store it should be released on the 4th of February.

I'll admit I love the idea of a single player text based strategy game, I am so sick of those "who can minimax most or pay the most cash" type of mmorgs with rounds that run on for weeks and weeks.

Preordered.  I was a big fan of nano; never tried the other but my wife says it was far too confusing.  Regardless, this should be good.

I do not know what my future holds, but I do know who holds my future.

To those who are wondering about n Android version, its most likely the normal answer tha devs will give:

"The blind Android community isn't viable enough, too hard to program."

In edition to the above, do to how Google's framework works in most cases, you have to turn off Talkback/voice Assistant, unless the programmer took the time to code the app from scratch, vs a port.

Thus, who knows!

Hello JSenter!
I Pre-ordered right now. I'd be honored to beta test, I love nano empire, didn't know about FOTP until today but I'm very excited to try it out. I have a question. Are you developing games by yourself or with a team? If you are in fact working by yourself, how do you offset the expenses of being an apple developer? If you don't mind my asking.
I'm curious because I love iOs gaming and would like to develop for apple devices, but I don't have the money to pay just to be a developer and publish on the appstore. I figure I would have to make games and sell them at a very high price just to be able to break even.
I'm so excited to try this new game!
