    so I go to yahoo to see how buried in sub options Kudos is, and there it is, slap bang on the main page at www.yahoo.com.
    w00t
    That should shift some copies. shouldn't it?

    Bah. it's gone. I'm not drunk honestly. they had 4 or 5 games there, MCF was one of them. They must randomly configure the front page or somesuch.
    aha yes they do... sometimes its shopping, sometimes cars, sometimes games...

    Speaking of Kudos...

    I saw it retail the other day and noticed it does not list you as a developer. What are the details of that arrangement?

    bah. I hate retail.
    I really need to put my foot down on that kind of crap in future. did it mention zero-G as the developer? or nobody? I must pester them for some sample copies.

    It was a company I've actually never heard of.

    I noticed the publishing company listed that other developer on another product. It must be trend in their products.

    I'm surprised they didn't offer a logo space.

    They don't "offer" things like that. You have to demand it in your contract. Should also be demanding to approve packaging. But hey, sometimes you just have to be grateful you're getting the deal at all...

    In business you don't get what you deserve. You get what you negotiate for...

    Actually happens often even online... I see Kudos listed as "developer: zeroG" even in reflexive for example :eek:

    The ad for Kudos etc appears if you keep reloading yahoo, looks like about 4 or 5 ads cycling round. That is pretty good exposure :cool:
    [EDIT: oh, u already said that. Back to work... ]

    Yahoo's front page is highly dynamic, but yeah, I see Kudos there all the time. They seem to be promoting it quite a bit.

    Depends on the publisher, but I think most should be open to giving you a look at the packaging before it's done.

    Saw it at Best Buy the other day, congrats!

    BestBuy isn't such a skyscraper. At least our ones have pushed Dwice to BestBuy too. ;)

    http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=8226715&type=product&tab=1&id=1166840603266
