Square Planet - October 18

Get The Ball Rolling

We could press a button right now and release the game. Yup. Alas, thepowers-that-be(journalists, Apple)kindly advised us to set afixedrelease date.

Overall, making Square Planet took about6 months to our team of 5and a couple of lending hands. Justa tad longerthan initially planned (cough -3 months), but boy, will itkeep you all on theedgeof your seat!

A Whole New Ball Game

Meanwhile, we’d like to suggest checking outthe game’s spanking newtrailer, hot off the editing frying pan. Know someone who might like Square Planet? Feel free tosharethe trailer.

iPhone, iPad & iPod Touch

Square Planet is to be released simultaneously onall iOS devices, includingiPad.Isn’t that sweet?
Unfortunately, itdoes not run oniPhone 3GS and below. The square and edgyHD graphicsproved to be more than the venerable devices could handle.

One More Thing

Too Long ; Didn’t Read?

How many people still play Ski Champion?

Hi there,

Just a quick post as we’ve entered crunch mode to finish Square Planet.

I thought I’d post this graph showing how many people play Ski Champion every day. As you can see we’re in the low part of the curve right now, having ran a promo op a month ago that boosted our downloads.
