Our game is not visible in the windows phone store RRS feed

  • Question

  • 6 days ago we published our game in windows phone store.
    We got the following notifications from windows phone dev center:

    5 days ago: Congratulations! Hungy app has successfully passed certification to be included in the Windows Phone Store.
    1 day ago: Your submission for Hungy passed certification. Your submission will be published to store within 24 hours. 

    24 hours already passed. My application status is "In the Store". It is searchable in the store  by name,  but the problem is that it is not visible in any list of the store. 
    1. It would be reasonable, if I could find my application here: https://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/store/new-games
    2. I listed all the games inside the following categories "puzzle + trivia", "family" and also could not find our game there (we published our game under kids+family category. Keywords: puzzle, ...).
    3. Nearly one week the list of the "new games" is the same. No one is creating new games for windows phone any more?

    My main question is: what is wrong with with windows phone store? If users can`t search my game with any keyword and can`t see it in any list how they will know about the existence of our game?

         In my case, it took about 5 days after getting the "congratulations! your app is in the store" message before I could find my game in the "new and rising" game list.

         You should have an email with a link to your application in the store. If that  link works then I believe it is only a matter of time.

         Good luck in the Marketplace!!!

  • Hi Tarah, thanks for the reply.
    Few days ago our app became available in the "new + rising" list.
    We didn`t get any new emails from Microsoft, so I can`t say exactly how many days/hours the publishing process took but in our case it was surely more than 5 days.
