Dave Report from the Forums: 1.10

Here is a preview of the TouchArcade that was posted:

"So, this week was kind of a milestone for us, we released 10 updates in 10 weeks and our 11th update is in review right now. It’s kind of funny that our new update is about hurricanes because that's exactly what it has felt like since we started in January.



This was a fun one to work on for me, the last few have been fairly heavy on the art side, but this one was mainly a programming effects based update. We have wanted to do Hurricanes for a while but I've been a little concerned that I wouldn’t have the time to do it justice, but once I got into it and created the initial algorithm for doing the whirlwind, everything just started falling in place and Sunday night it all just came together at the last minute like usual. I think you will like it, it’s pretty interactive and the pygmies look awesome when they are being whipped around in three dimensions."

  2. never mind, i found the hint...please don't turn this into a game, i really like the fact that this is a mindless...activity that will entertain you, not something you can actually loose, or get good at...

  3. So the next update title has something to do with the New Testament and you can find them on the back of the cars? Well maybe lights, or glass... So frustrating... lol

  7. Ok seriously these updates sound fun and what not but I have not gotten ANY of them I'm still on episode 8 and when I go into my app updates it says there are none!!!!! This is starting to get extremely annoying!!!!!

  8. Ryann! calm down! I'm not sure what is happening but I'm not sure its in our control. You are using your ipod to update your app, right? You go to the app store and find the updates button at the bottom, right? You might try deleting the app and "buying" it again. If you bought it, the app store won't charge you again. People do it all the time when they've deleted an app and decide they want it back. Let me know if that works for you.

  10. I would like to give you guys a quick suggestion. What if you introduced a karma system of sorts, where if you start killing a bunch of islanders they begin to not like you, rebel, swim away, stuff like that. But if you are a good god then they will worship you, bow down, stuff like that.

  17. Did the Mighty Wind update break the ability to swipe across the screen and change the weather, or is that a setting I haven't found?
