John doesn't fight to rack up kills or for honor and pride. At least not anymore. He just fights to survive and get the whole thing over with. His ship is controlled by Ellie, an Artificial Intelligence which is programmed to help pilots stay mentally strong throughout the war and which cannot kill human beings.

Federation is about to turn the tide of the war but then things start to go wrong. Ellie puts John into hibernation for 1000 years. Now he will have to discover what really happened and maybe, but just maybe, save the galaxy.

Oh, you mean that. App store didn't mark it as "compatilbe with iPhone 6/6+" because it's not 64bit ready.

We use Unity and we cannot change that until they update the engine with 64 bit support.

It's not that it doesn't work or has flaws. It means that it could run even faster if we had support for it.

The same goes for Metal. Unity doesn't support it yet, but we've tiptoed around that limitation

We'll squeeze even more performance when our engine gets those updates.
