    Hey thanks @Andy I appreciate that :)
    @Christoph thanks man I'm always floating around checking the forums here and there.
    @AndyG thanks buddy!

    I have a lot of exciting developments I'll share with you guys soon. A few new developments I can share now are that my publishing contract is ending on the 15th of December and that I will be taking full control of Color Switch going forward. I have a rock star team of
    programmers, business development people, and artists. We will be coming out with a sequel, and a variety of Color Switch spin offs this next year. I'll be happy to share my new perspectives and things I've learned the past two years so that hopefully you guys can get a few great take aways for your own success going forward.

    @Iqur
    Just to know how much you can take with a game that has more than 100 Milion downloads lol ;).
    I am very shocked to know that @Machine Rises is going to work with a rockstar team cause they got paid very much as i know and i think he is going to put on market some real stuf after color switch i this gives me the strength to developer games! " We are working on 4 Unity 3d Games actually" and i want to get the same success a little bit lower but to be a successful team. ;)

    Guys I can tell you right now that I'll never be sharing any financial information about this game or anything else I do. Not only will that not help you but what any of us make in our jobs is not anyone's business but ours. Your main concern should be becoming as great a game designer as you can. If you make a great game and you partner with a great publisher then you will do very well trust me. Money should not be on your mind. When I made Color Switch and every game before that my daily actions were on developing my game design skills as well as my creative skills. Sure I wanted to make a living doing this full time but worrying about how much I could make would have done me no good. Daily action towards improving my creative thinking and game design skills was what I focused on and that is what you need to focus on because anything beyond that will come if you lay down this essential foundation.;)

    If I were you guys I would take hold of the great opportunity you have with Build Box. You could make a game every day if you set that as a goal. The more games you make and the more quickly you make them the closer you get to your goal of making a great game. Going through the process many times is how you will come to that goal. At the same time make sure you are putting new information into your brain every day so that you have new actions and improved creations. Your brain needs daily food other wise your results will not change. Change the way you think to change what you create.

    I'm sure you guys will hear word eventually so here is the message from the link below:


    The past two years have been an amazing ride for Color Switch and we are so grateful for all of our loyal fans and players. As of December 22nd, the Color Switch app will be taken down by our former publisher because they are holding our game hostage. We've worked very hard to avoid this situation and we are very sorry to let you, our players, down.

    We are a small independent game studio that believes games should be about fun for everyone and not just about business. To all artists, builders, students, dreamers, creators and pioneers, there are times in life where you have to make a stand for what you know is right. This is one of those times for Color Switch.

    Every action begins with a thought. We never could have imagined our journey would take us around the world meeting players of all ages who love our game. Our team is so thankful for all your support and we are ready to bring you even more in 2018! We thank you for your patience while we put the finishing touches on our next game. Please go to www.colorswitch.co to enter your contact information so we can let you know when Color Switch is available again along with our new titles!



    Sincerely,

    The Color Switch Team

    FYI Color Switch isn't going anywhere it's just down temporarily. I own 100% of the IP and this had to be done for me to be 100% independent.;)

    The website works for me and I submitted my info.

    I’m sorry you’ve had trouble with Color Switch but I’m glad you’re sorting it.
    Keep up the great work :D

    Sad to hear that there are differences. I must admit though, I was surprised to hear you had only a 2 years contract. Umbrella does 5 years others even 10. So I guess this was a mistake by Fortafy? Hope everything works out and that there won’t be any hard feelings in the end. Color Switch is THE game to look up to. The good thing that will come out of this is that it will get more free publicity I guess. Definitely interested in more information if there is any to share.

    What is being done about those clones that have popped up? Are they not willing to remove them?

    There’s too many.
    Color Switch is probably the second most cloned game :(
