Just noticed PGU just went up in price to $1.99. It had been sitting at $0.99 for awhile. I wonder if that's an indication that maybe an update is finally on the way. It doesn't seem like they've played too many pricing games in the past so I was thinking there might be some meaning to the price change.

Hey, last night I changed the price but we are not doing any new content updates. there will be an update at the end of the year where we take out open feint but we are not planning on adding new content to PGU.

The price change is because PGU is really low in the ranks and we need to figure out how to make more revenue out of the game while we try to finish the runs. It's basically an experiment.

Although we do think that PGU has some pretty awesome mini games. it might not have as much content as PG but PG has been worked on for 4 years straight but we do think that PGU still more content than most other apps.

The problem is that we are finally hitting that point where we need to start focusing on new apps instead of tons of updates because our apps are not as high in the ranking as they used to be. If we were still in the top 50 with both apps we would be able to do updates for a long time to come.

I completely understand that you need to put your time, effort and resources into apps that are going to make you money. Maybe you should experiment with a new PGU content update that is an IAP. Maybe your existing user base is loyal enough to buy it. I know I would (for my kids who love PGU.)

no more updates for PGU, we are working on new games. We have to be careful where we put our time.

Update?

10/31/13 and still not even a rumor of an update, seriously?
This is really disappointing, I thought it would be a great game, how do you expect to make a new good game, if you believe that it is ok to say that you basically don't care about all your costumers that have already bought a game in which you said you would launch new updates, because you need to make a new app to be "popular" in the top-ranking and save your time... It's just stupid, if you can't improve this game, that by the way isn't that original, it's basically pocket god, I'm sure you will never be able to create a game that people will like, besides the people that bought PGU, believe me, will never buy a new game of you, because you have already disappointed them, like me.

I can't believe your comments to the other people , it's like if you literally just didn't care about them...

Journey to Uranus is finished, there are no more updates coming out for it.

There are more than 6 solid games in pgu that are equivalent to stand-alone games on their own. Maybe it doesnt match pocket god, but there is more content in pgu than in most other apps for the same price.

Why did you guys have stopped adding things to PGU?

You should have added basics things like fire ants, temperature, dodo bird, fishing, ooga jump, the runs, underwater areas, etc. and if you have added these things and had raised its price to 4 USD, then also a huge amount of your customers have had bought it!

So please add more things to this game, Please I beg You!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey if you guys don't want to update PG JTU, then make PG iPad compatible!
Your sales will go above MT. Everest if you do this and change it's price to 1.99 USD.

This was my suggestion to you please think at this topic, please!
Keep making great apps!

Best wishes from

Welp, its been 3 years, what now?

This game had so much potential. Yet, you stopped at 6, because... why? You didn't even make it to episode 10. Let alone 7. You really need to add something to this. You are ripping people off. Pocket God has had a good 5 or 7 updates since then giving lots more content. Going into a whole new island, more stuff under water, and... just... so much more. You could make a Star Wars theme for Journey. You could also change the name, though its funny, if you feel like its needed. The games on JtU are a lot more fun than PG originals. You should continue, people would be redownloading and stuff. You're original is still in the top charts so why not just finish up with its 50 episodes and get to work on this ones next one again. There are so many ideas you could implement. The original has a lot, with over 4 games you can play, I think 7 in total, 4 to 8 smaller games you can play, over 30 to 40 different things you can do to the Pygmies and yet there's still more.

You know what would be fun? A RPG on the Journey to Uranus. Not something big but something you could expand if you ever felt like it. Please, just add some more stuff to the 0.99 app.
