Idle Hands is now available in the app store and we've just submitted "Hi, Dracula!" which should come out end of week or early next.
In case you haven't noticed with Idle Hands, there is a new menu that allows you to turn certain functions on and off. There were many complaints that the island was getting too crowded, or the gravity was annoying in certain situations, plus various other similar issues, so we wanted to install a menu system that turns things on and off and gives you way to access certain functions. This menu will eventually have categories and drill-down menus, but as yet there isn't enough to warrant that. Also you MIGHT notice, if you leave them alone, the islanders are now doing other things besides staring straight ahead. They might wave at you, they might look around in curiosity, or even get a little gassy. Dave also spent a while on the gravity situation. There were a LOT of complaints that the boulder (now a meteor) and coconut weren't affected, so he did a really cool job of fixing that. Try turning the island upside-down with the meteor, watch it drop off..turn it back right side up and it comes back!
And today marks week 2 in the number one spot! We can't believe we're still up there as our expectations have been more than exceeded! Thanks everybody for the fantastic word of mouth. I'm still playing catch up this week but will make an effort to read through all the most recent comments. We've definitely created a monster with the blog/facebook/youtube/flickr accounts and its a lot for us to keep up on. We really appreciate your participation! -A
