Re: Release date

I might have missed it somewhere, but is the game being released on computer first and then tablet? I know the tablet was what the game makers wanted, but I noticed on the poll most people want it on the computer. I just wasn't sure if plans changed. If they haven't, then that just means more waiting, as I need it on the computer anyway.

Take your time with the bugs. I'd really like to be able to use the Slough Creek den.

@Kitsuma: Yup, the computer versions will launch before the tablet version(s).

Seeing how the large majority of players want to get the desktop (Mac/Win) version, and since the tablet version requires a bit additional optimization, plus the one-week review time for Apple's App Store...we're going to release the desktop version as soon as it's ready, and then get the tablet version submitted for review, so that will be released about 10 days later, roughly. Sorry about that, tablet players, but we decided there was no good reason to hold up the desktop release due to those tablet-only factors.

I had a very nice vacation, thanks for all of your well-wishes. While I was gone, my Unity developer Tommi cranked through a lot of bugs and polishes...while the beta testers found a few more bugs. But now we are almost done with the list. Then we'll do one final (I hope!) build for beta testers and give them a few days with it. Then after making final tweaks/fixes, we'll be ready to prepare the game for release. Unfortunately, that does push the release into next week. Sorry! But we really are close now. I don't know when next week, and even with my hopeless optimism, I'd be foolish to say early in the week. But I don't see anything that would stop us from releasing it by the end of next week.

I do hope it's released early in the week, but, at the same time, I want there to be as little bugs as possible. Either way, so excited for this game! :3

Glad you had a great vacation, take as much time as you need, I want the game to be very enjoyable and bug free when it comes out!

Great you had a good vacation, Dave!
And you guys take as much time as you need! Of course we are all excited to see and play it, but a game isn't made in only a week or so. c;

It's nice to see all the bugs are pretty much squashed, I'm hoping there aren't gonna be game breaking bugs that hop out of the blues. Best of luck to you guys.

Just a quick question, and I know this probably isn't going to happen, but I have an idea...

For those of us who cannot afford to buy the game, could there possibly be some kind of competition on the forum to give a few lucky users a chance to get the game for free?

I'm sorry if this is wrong of me to ask, but I really love this game... I just can't afford it right now....

I know there have been giveaways in the past; wolf567 hosted a mood necklace competition for during the festive season, for example... it would be nice to do this for those who can't purchase the full game. Forwarded to the mod forum for discussion. :)

That's actually a great idea! Maybe we could have a monthly contest for a free copy of the game (something on the forums, like UotM).

Really sorry about my uncertainty but, I didn't stay longer involved when the new version is going to be finally published.
I just ask now pretty quickly and simply the whether the version coming possibly when it is predicted ( in this month ), or weeks later?

Dave recently made a post regarding the release of the game and stated that the current estimation is next week, so it won't be coming out in October but hopefully very soon!;

Don't stress yourself. Everyone deserves a break.
On a side note, if you do, don't feel bad about charging. You deserve a living, to be rewarded for your work ^_^

Also, kudos to the bug squashes! SQUASH THEM BUGS
