Nice find! Very, very tempting. As in the Greenlight comments, the animation and that HAH~! sort of worry me, but the developers mention Chrono Trigger and Zelda, there doesn't look to be any IAPs and the art is just so attractive. *scratches beard*

EDIT: I'm weak. So weak. Bought.

DEVELOPER IS HERE!!! Or at least the artist from the studio :P (EDIT: who I see are above :P )

Thank you guys so much for the lovely comments! It's really great to hear people's opinions after all the work we've put in!

IMPORTANT NOTICE HOWEVER!

We've JUST identified a bug with Retina enabled displays. There is a texture scaling issue due to the different resolution - this has been fixed and a patch is already awaiting review from Apple, so hopefully it will update shortly. Sorry about that guys

@metalcasket
We've noticed some people saying downloads are slow for some reason We only went live yesterday, so maybe Apple's servers have not all fully updated with it or something?

You'll be happy to know there are NO IAPs. We're gamers, and we made a game we would like to play - I dunno about others but prompts for DLC are an immersion-breaker to me!

@bramblett05
We're definitely investigating other platforms at the moment, but iPod will probably be awhile out (we like to test it out as much as we can first!)

[EDIT] Oh, and PS thanks to Squeaker for posting this up!

Default Ooh!

Ooh! This looks fantastic fellas.

I may even pull the trigger on this one and purchase, and you should know I hardly ever buy a full price game at launch... So don't bite me in the behind on this one by dropping the price to free next week, mmkay? (Kidding, do whatever you need to do in order to be successful).

I do have a question for the developers - with the retina bug, should I wait to play? Is it a serious texture issue that affects the game from the beginning?

Edit: like metal casket, I'm so weak. Just purchased. A big reason I bought it is because I visited your website and saw just how excited you are all by this game's release. I'm a sucker for an enthusiastic, young studio, and I can't wait to play Ku and share my thoughts.

@Psiufoxx

Paul here from bitSmith Games. Thanks for the kind words!

Unfortunately the Retina bug causes all animated sprites to not upscale to the appropriate resolution, so to go along with Irish folklore, you will see lots little leprechauns running around It was something that was fixed but reverted somehow just prior to submission.

It appears as if the issue is not occurring on all Retina iPads, so you may be one of the lucky ones! The update is with Apple at the moment, hopefully it won't take long to get approved; we're trying to fasttrack it at the moment.

So very sorry for this, we really appreciate your purchase and we'd love to hear what you think once you've given it a try.

Paul

Edit: Sorry, it does seem to be affecting all Retinas. Sorry for the confusion.
