Hi All,
we just posted a new youtube video showing realtime radiosity, dynamic lights, refractive & reflective ice on iOS (watch on HD for best effect... ;-)
Will those effects come to LostWinds 1 too?

Amazing new season-switching gameplay. Incredible new wind powers at the tips of your fingers. Beautiful visuals. Expansive new environments to explore. Charming new characters, and an absorbing storyline. Each element builds on the success of the first game to make Frontier’s ‘LostWinds2: Winter of the Melodias’ an unmissable experience on iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch.

As you journey through all-new expansive areas of Mistralis - using Enril the Wind Spirit’s amazing new abilities to power young Toku’s jumps and glides and thwart evil Balasar and his minions - you’ll experience realtime radiosity, dynamic lights, dynamic shadows and reflective & refractive ice shaders. These advanced graphical techniques realize the full potential of your Apple device and give the already gorgeous game even extra depth and added beauty.

Harness the brilliance of nature: Sonte, Spirit of Seasons' astonishing powers let you instantly transform Mistralis between Summer and Winter at will to aid your progress
Frozen Winter ponds and waterfalls become teeming Summer pools in which Toku can dive and unlock secrets
Form snowballs from the air or manipulate moisture-laden clouds to help with your quest
Master Enril’s rediscovered incredible cyclone power, using it to transport Toku, smash powerful enemies and even drill through the rock around you
Expansive new regions of Mistralis provide spectacular arenas for Toku’s jumps and glides
New enemies and familiar foes to buffet, smash, freeze, burn and douse

Release date and pricing are yet to be announced.

The graphics, gameplay and attention to detail is AMAZING. Got the first one which is an excellent platformer. Any idea on what sort of price we'll be looking at?

Congratulations on being Starbucks Pick of the Week this week! I'm a bit surprised this wasn't timed to coincide with the release of the second LostWinds game, but it's great to see your app get this exposure and I hope this drives your sales figures up!

Edit: Surprise! I see the second game is being released tomorrow! Awesome! Great timing then, and I hope the Starbucks campaign leads to even more folks to check out the new title!

Walkthrough?

Just to save someone the trouble of replying with the mandatory "try searching", I already searched this forum, Google, etc.

Does anyone know of a walkthrough for this game on iPhone? I find plenty for Wii but they aren't very helpful. Thanks.

Why wouldn't they be helpful? It's an exact port....

I'll look more closely at those walkthroughs. Most seem to be video and I really don't want to watch long videos just to find the spot I'm currently stuck at.

Does "direct port" mean that they take the code from the original game and use it unchanged to the new platform? I know they'd need to make some changes since the OS is different and the original Wii obviously has different controls than the iPhone.

I mean, other than the controls, EVERYTHING is the same.

Once you get a hang of the controls, this game really hits the spot. Can't to play LostWinds2.
