There's a solution for everything

I can assure you that The Train episode 02 is much better, and more polished than the first episode.

The Train episode 02 is about twice as big as the first episode - more dialogues, more locations, more items, and puzzles.
There are fewer loading times, and they are shorter. Also I deleted the Virtual Analog Stick, and make full screen backgrounds, optimized for Retina.

My favorite part of the second episode is living world - there is a working watch, you can meet characters in different locations - they are going to the restaurant, or to the bathroom. Some of them are even talking with each other.

Not yet picked any of these up but they do look good. A couple of questions.

Do they play like broken sword?

How many parts will there be?

Will there be an ipad or universal version of episode 2?

It's more similar to 1112 series, or The Secret of Grisly Manor.
There will be 3 parts (two of them are available).
iPad version will be available in two weeks max.

BTW, The Train episode 01 is now available for only 0.99 USD, and The Train episode 01 HD for only 1.99 USD.

It does look excellent and I love a good adventure game. I spotted the HD version last night at 1.49 so I think I will pick up tonight and wait for the HD version of episode 2.

Roughly, when do you imagine episode 3 to be available. Early next year?

First of all I want to publish a new update to episode 01 (it will improve the entire episode, and add few new features, it will be available in few weeks). The third episode should be available in December

What do you mean by improvements? Cosmetic or changes to the story itself?

Just few improvements (I want to replace the interface with the new one (from episode 02), replace Main Menu with the new one etc.). The story will stay the same.
