It has been a month since ChessInvaders was published in the App Store! It has "sold" (for free) more than 6k copies, and has been engaged with (played through at least one level) almost 15k times. The download rate has slowed to about 10 a day, but about double that are playing every day! I'm pretty happy with that given that it's a pretty hard and definitely beta quality game experience.

My eyes are glued to the screen. They rarely blink. They become irritated but I do not notice. I am in the zone. The force is with me. I feel it flow through me. I am coding. Even though the coding paradigm may not apply to everyone, we all know that feeling of hyper-attention. When an activity is so engrossing that the rest of the world fades away, we are left mano-a-mano, tête-à-tête, our ego and the task battling together for mutual gain.
