Out of curiosity - has the increased volume made up for the reduced price?

By about 10 fold, yes. Shame its only for a day.

I think the important thing here, linked to that other thread you're in, isn't even the price drop - it's the extra visibility itself. Now if only I could get google to make that much noise whilst the game's still at it's proper price...

I guess the new maps in the recent update were only for multi-player.

Do you have plans to add IAP map packs for those of us that prefer the campaign game to multi-player? I think there are other users who would be willing to pay for more campaign maps.

They were indeed.

I doubt we'll be making a campaign expansion tbh. Those in the previous game took a fair while to do and didn't cover their costs.

That's a shame. I guess you can only do what makes sense to keep the company moving forward.

We're still planning updates, just not for that particular thing. tbh I think 50 missions is plenty for anyone. That's more than the original AND all its expansions in one hit.

New units, more MP maps and stuff like that are far more likely to make an appearance.

I'm curious, do you have statistics on what fraction of app purchasers play MP? I would think it's still pretty small.

Just by comparing the numbers, I'd say its about 25%. Which did surprise me a little tbh, I was expecting way more than half to at least try it. Games like this play a lot friendlier online than jumping in with the sharks in call of duty etc., and I'd heartily recommend giving it a go.

However in terms of what we put into future updates, that's dictated by how many people request what types of things over on our forum. And that's almost always multiplayer maps and units. We've also publicly pledged to keep expanding the contents of the iap map packs so they get better value with age.

Units are the easiest things to make and add, but we're banking that up for one big hit in the future, as that's something that causes a mismatch and forced update with ongoing games.
