The Summer before High School is filled with an enormous amount of emotions. You may be feeling ecstatic to be Do with middle school, and beyond ready to begin this next chapter of your life. You may already be missing middle school, terrify of challenges that come with high school. If youre in the same mindset that I was in just two years ago, theres healthy mix of both. I am going to give you some advice that will make your freshman year, and rest of high school, easier, less stressful, and fun. When it comes to staying true to your character, high school students can have a pretty difficult time avoiding social expectations of being average teenager. Remember this: People are going to judge you no matter what; you may as well do whatever it is that makes you happy. As cliche as it is, just be yourself, and you will make friends. You will find your place in High School. Having good grades in high school is extremely important. Your grades in High School will determine which colleges you will be accepted to, how much scholarship money you will earn, which class you will be allowed to take, etc. Develop good study habits, do slack, and earn good grades throughout your freshman year, because it will act as a foundation for the rest of high school. I know that sleep is much more appealing than staying up until two in the morning to study for a test, but itll be immensely rewarding when all of your hard work pays off in the form of college acceptances and scholarships. They are important, but they arent everything. Just because you didnt do as well on test as you wish you had, does not mean youre complete failure and you wo get into college. As a perfectionist and someone with huge goals, I know how terrible low grade can feel. Keep moving forward. Remember that everyone has different strengths, dreams, and talents. Yours may not be in the classroom, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. High school is stressful, but many of the things students worry about are not as big of a deal as they may seem. Manage your time well, stay organize, make time for yourself, and learn to say no. Remember that you cant control everything, and High School is only four years of your life. It can also be helpful to try some stress-relieving activities, such as exercising, baking, writing, etc. Everyone is different; manage your time and handle your stress in a way that best fits you. High school is about the time when people start asking where you want to go to college, or what you want to pursue after college. Signing up for clubs, sports, activities and going to as many school-wide events as possible not only allows you to figure out what you do and do not like, but to meet new people, which leads me to my next point.

Gameplay

As anyone who's ever developed or published phone game will tell you, Mobile isn't best platform for original IP. Structural reasons for this have been discussed ad nauseum. To wit: poor merchandise on mobile decks throw commercial advantage to big brands; mobile audience overwhelmingly prefers familiar gameplay styles; and carrier representatives are naturally skeptical of new ideas. These are facts of life in our industry. For proof, look no further than Verizon Wireless' Top Sellers list. As I write this article, 19 out of 20 titles on that list are either brand or generic. Original Games may pop onto the list for brief periods, but they never stay for long or climb very far into the upper echelons, where Games like Tetris and Pac-Man are enshrine. One exception to this rule is Surviving High School '08, which is currently in the Hold down list's number three spot. '08 is the third game in the Surviving High School franchise. The second game, Surviving High School '07, enjoyed a year-long run on Verizon Wireless Top Sellers, and the original game, Surviving High School, had a brief stint on Top Sellers back in 2006. To give you a quick idea of the scale of business we're talking about here, subscriptions to Surviving High School '08 currently retail for 3. 49 months on Verizon Wireless, while unlimited purchase cost 7. 99. Most publishers consider games that sell 500 000 units a year to be solid success. Games that move 1 000 000 units a year qualify as huge successes. Several of Verizon Wireless' Top 10 Games reside in the latter category. How does this happen? Where do this original franchise come from, and how does it manage to scale these rare heights? Story of Surviving High School is a story of an industry's development and maturation in microcosm. It recounts the long struggle to overcome the Mobile platform's many technical, business, and creative challenges. It's important story to tell because it proves it can be done even now, when cynicism within the Mobile Games industry stands at an All-Time high. Hopefully, it will prove equally inspirational to those laboring in other developing corners of the Games business, where the road to success looks like it stretch on forever.
