We will do the research on Async, thats guaranteed.

The implementation is not too far fetched, as the game is turn based already.
Naturally there are several aspects that need to be taken into consideration.

For what we've gathered so far is that, Carcassonne and Ascension have done async very well and people refer them in many occasions.

What we would like to know from player's perspective are the key features, that you would wish to have in Cabals?
And what are the flaws in the current async games out there?

If you can help us out on the research and avoiding the pitfalls, we're ever so much closer to execution.

Just wonder what takes so long for Apple to release the game? Hate to read the texts on my crappy netbook.

I have plenty very cool cards in the PC version now. Will my progress (and cards) appear in the iOS version?

Great question. I'd like to know this also - I won't play on the Mac if the cards I acquire aren't available on the IOS version when it's released...

Any news on the release? This looks SO good...

Yep, your account is the same through all supported platforms.

Thanks,

All the progress and cards are bound to your account, and they are available on the platform you login with.
So its safe to start playing now, and you can continue on iOS when its out.

We're as anxiously waiting for Apple as many of you are.

Kyy,

I love the theme of your game. I hope it continues to grow and attracts a healthy player base.

I've noticed a lot of players have become disinterested in Shadow Era because the card updates come about so slowly and usually there are only a dozen or so new cards in the update. In contrast, a game like magic the gathering gets many hundreds of new cards every year.

Obviously, you don't have the resources to update Cabals with new sets as frequent as MTG. But, can you give us some sense of how often we can expect new cards and how many will be in new sets?

*edit*

Ok I'm an idiot. You answered a similar question here: http://forums.toucharcade.com/showth...13#post1951613

*2nd edit*

Also, how about a Black Friday sale on Influence points?

With regard to Influence it's slighty annoying that the lowest tranche of points you can buy is 550 and the (what look like) really great value starter decks are costed at 600.

I'd rather pay slighty more for that first tranche and get 600 enabling me to jump straight into trying out another Cabal.

Dear Kyy,

A question. Your FAQ says "You can buy in-game currency to expand your card collection faster and access other Premium features. We'll announce more details on Premium features later."

So how can I buy Influence points from the standalone PC game? I got some, then spent them on a starter pack and individual cards, and now I need a new deck/cabal.

Also, could you explain the Premium features?

Cheers.

I'm no Kyy, but I'm going to take this one anyway.

At least I can access an Influence point store by choosing Cabals Shop from the main menu and then the top option, Influence. It launches a browser-based shop (so it's not in the application itself) where you have all sorts of payment options.

Thanks Gargoyle, so it's not in the standalone app.
Gonna try the browser then, silly me.
