Oh wow, I've been looking for an excuse to pull out my million year old Microsoft Sidewinder 2 Joystick. Hopefully there's still support for it, I haven't used that thing in at least 10 years.

Excited!!!!

I've been awaiting these optimizations since the Tegra graphics were featured by Hodapp.

Then, when Valkyrie was released, I was quite disappointed Fishlabs neglected to bring the iPad 2 up to par (it's a more powerful GPU than the Tegra).

Finally, they're doing it and I couldn't be happier.

Will it be a new app? Or an update?

Can't wait for the specifics.

GOF2 Full HD will be released as a separate app because
  • of course we want to show new screenshots on the App Store but this would lead to false marketing for anyone who does not have an iPad 2
  • Anyone who does not have an iPad 2 would get 800 MB of data onto his device that is not used for the current version of GOF2 and memory is very precious
  • GOF2 Full HD won't feature Valkyrie in the beginning which would lead to inconsistencies with current save games
  • we want to be flexible when updating both versions indenpendtly
  • we want to be flexible on pricing the two version separately

Hope that makes sense to everyone

Cheers,
Michael

Questions:

Any timeframe ideas:

Releasing Fall (before Halloween), or Fall (closer to Xmas)?

Are the screenshots shown, exactly as the game will look on iPad 2? Or are they version for Mac? (if they're for the Mac, can you post what iPad 2 will look like?) - will it also look better or equal to Tegra versions?

Unrelated:

I've been hankering for a Cool Boarders/1080 snowboard like title on the app store. I see, that you guys, make Snowboard hero.

Is there anyway, iPad 2 owners could ever see a visually beefed up (like GOF2: FHD) version arrive? That'd be slick, you'd get my cash for that, too.


Hope that makes sense to everyone

Cheers,
Michael

Why don't you make it for Steam as a PC and Mac game? The ammount of could-be buyers would be alot higher that way. (And I would most likely buy it again if it was there.)

Just a guess on my part but since steam does not permit in game content purchasing/downloading like iOS and Mac do thats probably why most iOS games don't port to steam. Google 'ea vs steam' for the skinny on this subject.

Well you can't buy DLC in the game, but you can buy it on steam, I don't think it can be too hard to change that...
