Hey, I also bought the Android version, it has the same issue with the control options coming up every level, anyway you could take it off the Android version too? It is so irritating. Would really appreciate it. Thanks.

Yeah, thanks! Orborun is one of the few games I double dipped for on android. Would be awesome if you could update it to get rid of the control nag screens.

When I see the update on android, I will smile big!

This bundle now features an exclusive endless mode prototype for Orborun.

This is a prototype of an Endless Orborun mode, developers have decided to share that with you! (available for Win / Mac / Linux). It has no menus and just a basic platforms. Keep on rolling and don’t fall!
From September 2013...

Not yet sure about that, first we need to take care of this release ...

I know... That version was laying in our hard drives for some time and now when we have launched in groupees I have decided to make it "playable" by removing all dev stuff, fixing it to compile again and uploaded as unlockable content instead of soundtrack. I've done that right after I heard people complaining that uploading soundtracks as a bonus is lame!

So my conscious is clean! if you think that was wrong thing to do - speak. If you think that we should have kept working on Orborun Endless version - we had no money for that, Orborun was not that successfull and we were broke. We've done things to survive... Horrible things... And now we are getting players attention once again on steam and groupees. Players still love's the game, but that does not generate us any revenues as we have no large community... However that might change if we will get greenlit on steam. So don't blame us and cheers!

Orborun is one of my favorites of 2013 and overall. I would be very happy to see an endless mode with an update. Hope Steam does wonders for you too

I'm not being critical of the endless mode release, I applaud that. I posted the details here in hopes it suggests the possibility of endless mode making an addition to the iOS edition of Orborun; but apparently that's not likely. At a minimum this lets Orborun fans know an endless mode alpha build is accessible on PC.

That's unfortunate, usually bundles indicate last ditch efforts for marketing and easier cash flow.

Well, ok then sorry for missunderstanding! I guess premium market is really hard to break into, expect Orborun 2 or smth like that to show up sometime as a free game with probably different game modes lots of IAP's and offerwalls... I know many of you hate that, but we need to live and that is the only way we can produce better content for iOS / Android...

This may be; but it's also a hypothetical unknown and there are likewise many developers who fall into this "freemium promised land" trap or assuming there's better money to be made when that may not necessarily be the case. I'd love to see a freemium Orborun 2 just to see if it is more of a success with that model out of curiosity.
