Hopefully 9th 2 will come out cuz unfortunately never got this game
. It was on my list, but there were always so many other games... :/
"Made with Marmalade" was the actual name of publisher for the game. Go google it. I know it's a dev tool but they opened a publishing division. The 9th Dawn devs (Valorware) made some deal with the Marmalade people for publishing under that division. I can't remember if "Made with Marmalade" published any other games... but they are no longer on the appstore in any form so I don't know without extensive searching
I wonder if anyone has tested this game with a later version of iOS? I may get my son to install it on his 5S. He's running ios8 so maybe I can find out and post about compatibility issues. Since I have backups of the game I can just install it that way if it doesn't show in the purchased history.
I don't know when the game vanished from the store, but it has been 2 years since it launched so maybe whatever deal was made for publishing ran out. Either way it would be 2 years since MwM appeared as a publisher as well... so that license could have been up and with no sales to cover the costs they opted to shut it down.
Whatever the case a quick look at the facebook page:
It appears that they are still working on porting the game to Steam and aren't dead... just very understaffed.
