Earlier this month we told you all about a new game exclusive to Windows Phone called Vicious Attack Llama Apocalypse: Alpha (but we’ll just call it VALA: Alpha). The game was created and launched by Matt Cavanagh, aka @RogueCode, from South Africa. He’s been around the Windows Phone scene a long time making his own apps and games, while also doing work for others like MyEdit. VALA: Alpha has only been out for two weeks, but it’s picked up over 50,000 downloads. In a new blog post he shares what’s next for the game.
First off, congrats to Matt on picking up over 50,000 downloads for VALA. The game has been well received by the Windows Phone community and we’re happy for the response so far. Right now the game is completely free (no ads, no in-app purchases) and will probably remain like that for quite some time. The game is still in open development and Matt has a lot more plans for VALA down the road. Some of which he shared. Here’s what you can look forward to in VALA soon:
- MOGA controller support
- Better Llama variations with individual personalities and abilities
- Various weapons
- Power-Ups (different from the ones generated by the towers)
- Badges/Achievements which lead to unlocks
- Tons more surprises
There have been two updates to VALA since it launched. One comes out in a few days and will focusing on addressing and improving performance on devices like the Lumia 520 and Lumia 620. We’re very stoked to see VALA continue to grow on Windows Phone.
Since the game was funded through AppCampus it will remain exclusive to Windows Phone for at least three months. After that we may see it on other platforms like Windows 8.
Want to give VALA: Alpha a try? It’s completely free and available in the Windows Phone Store.
