The video won't make it for today (possibly tomorrow or after tomorrow) but at least I'll say the release date which is for May 2013.
Excellent. Thank you for the info -- and right on time, too .

The game runs pretty fine on it but we still have a memory problem (it crashes quite often with the itouch4 due to the 256MBs memory limit). We have gazillions of data loaded on every level. As soon as the optimization is done I'll post a video of the game running on the iTouch4.
Texture resolution will of course be reduced quite a lot (not a problem on iPhone4).

Give it a rest. Tato is not developing the game by himself: he has a team and, more important, investors. Any information he shares has to be vetted and approved by multiple parties. He may have known the release date for weeks already, but not able to share till now. That's how things work when you're not an indie developer out on your own.

PS: that's what I mean by "behaving like a jerk."

@Idgeian,
With all due respect, high living moral standards have nothing to do with how game industry works. Smaller games are easy to predict. FM is a big game with a depth hierarchy of sub-systems quite complex. Yes I' said we where trying to finish the game by December (but we never said we WILL released and publish it this month). We clearly said we won't release the game till is polished and if we have to take 3-4 months extra to make it better we will do it. Say whatever you want, we won't release the game till is fully polished.

Dear TA users,
Keep waiting a little bit more, once you get FM on your hands you won't be disappointed!
The first gameplay video will come this week, tanks again for being patient!

We wish you a happy new year!
Regards from Psychoz Team (they all follow this thread even if I'm the one posting updates).

Then i have to say that may is pretty far from now!!! I was expecting something way sooner i just hope that this is really coming on may because when you say may its not a date but a month but i don't know anything about developping stuffs so i'm not complaining! Anyway still looking forward to this video tomorrow or whenever this week!! Depending on what we will see on it i'll be still following the tread or not. Though the game will still anyway be an instabuy for me at the release.

As long as the game is complete and polished completely with no bugs, and doesn't dissapoint, I don't mind waiting.
