Ldoe (Last Day On Earth) has been out for over 2 years now, and surpassed 50 million downloads on Android. But the game technically is still in BETA, meaning that it’s not done. Incomplete.
Do I think that Ldoe could have been finished, and brought out of BETA by now? Yes. The reason that they are staying in BETA is because that Ldoe’s catch is that they always have you coming back for more.
It’s a fun game, but eventually over time you just repeat the exact same thing… then BAM! They have a new update out right when you start getting bored that changes the entire game!
Suddenly in this new update the item you’ve been waiting for comes out, and makes things so much easier! But then… you notice something… to make this happen it requires RSS (Resources), which make it 10 times harder.
The spark is back in the game, your joyful again over the game, and screaming your so happy!… ok maaaaaybe you don’t react that way… but you are happy!!!
- Technically there’s no rule saying they can’t stay in BETA mode forever. And since its successful for them, and keeps the game fun for us: Why should they ever even try coming out of BETA Mode?
