I am disappointed in RealArcade. I finally bit the bullet and submitted Duck Tiles to 'em. When I met with 'em in the GDC, they went on and on about their review process and how good it'd be to at least have my game reviewed by industry bigwigs. They said I'd have nothing to lose, because at worst I'd get some good constructive criticism on my game. So I bit and filled out all of their stuff. Less than 24 hours later, this is what I got. . .
Hello John,Wow, what a well thought out and robust review there. Somehow I think they promised a bit more than "Not our cup of tea. Sorry!"
Thank you for uploading Duck Tiles to us for review. Unfortunately, games based heavily on logic do not resonate well with our audience. Games that feature more puzzle-action (Jewel Quest), light action (Charm Tale) and word (WordSlinger) gameplay tend to be more successful in our service. We are declining distribution of the game at this time, but we still encourage you to submit games to us for review.
