The Octagon Theory (TOT) is a completely original two-player turn-based strategy game that is played on an octagon-shaped board. It's completely different from Othello (Reversi), Checkers, and Chess, but TOT shares many of the traits that make these board games so much fun.
Although TOT boasts intense strategy, players need not bother with manuals or tutorials to play. The idea is simple. Push opponents off the board using the directional pieces. Just follow your intuition, watch what the computer (in TOT mobile for iOS devices) and other players (in the TOT online experience) do and enjoy playing this exciting new game
I have a bunch of iTunes App Store promo codes that I can give out. These promo codes will allow you to download my game for free (It's 2.99 USD right now). There is a free version on the App Store too but it is very limited. My game is 'The Octagon Theory' (TOT for short) and it is universal which means that TOT looks good on both the small iPhone and on the larger iPad.
Now I hope you are interested in getting a promo code and trying out my game. But I don't want to waste these codes. I want to give them to those of you who are really interested in playing TOT. So to prove you are really interested you have to join me in a chat session where I will personally give the first 10 of you a promo code. Here's how to go about that.
1. Go to http://TheOctagonTheory.com
and register by clicking the link in the upper-right corner. You'll get an email to confirm your registration. Then…
2. Log in on TheOctagonTheory.com (in a PC browser that supports Flash) then click the 'Play TOT Online' button on the left under the big banner. (Yes. you can also play TOT online).
2. Click the 'How to Play' button on the upper-right, under the Twitter icon, and read the instructions before continuing. Don't worry, the instructions are very short and simple. TOT almost plays itself.
3. Click the 'Go online' button to the left of the 'How to Play' button.
You will be (or should be) matched against 'Dan' (That's me). To get the promo code you have to complete one full game against me. During the game I'll be able to see that you actually registered because you will have a user name instead of 'guestnnnn' for non-registered players.
We can chat during the game and you can give me your email address where I will send your iTunes App Store TOT promo code.
3. That's all (almost).
Now the thing is not many people know about TOT or TOT Online yet so you may not find anyone to play against, and since I can't be everywhere at once you'll have to join a TOT Online game at one of the scheduled times… when I'll be waiting for you.
There may be (a snowball's chance in hell) others waiting for a game at the same time so you may be matched against someone who isn't me. Please play them. Then at the end of the game refuse the rematch (or you can play them again if you want) and then you'll get the chance to be matched against me so I can give you your TOT promo code.
Here's when I'll be online in JST. JST is Japan Standard Time (GMT + 9:00):
12/31: ---, 8-10PM
1/1: -----, 8-10PM
1/2: -----, 8-10PM
1/3: -----, 8-10PM
1/4: 6-8AM, 8-10PM
1/5: 6-8AM, 8-10PM
1/6: 6-8AM, 8-10PM
I'll continue until 1/6 or 10 promo codes are used up, which ever comes 1st. I will keep updataing in this forum how many codes are left. And who knows. If this campaign is successful I may give away another 10 promo codes.
And even if you don't have an iOS device or don't want the iOS game, please, PLEASE continue to play TOT Online. I'm trying to build a community there and make TOT a timeless classic.
