@daxmort - we are true Android junkies. We just release the new major story mode for Cyber Knights and the massive Narvidian Dawn campaign for Templar Assault. You won't find us giving up on Android or stopping the constant flow of updates any time soon. We are starting to announce and discuss our next game, a fantasy RPG, called Heroes of Steel. Not going anywhere!

About IAPs -- we have learned the hard way that it seems to be something that people just don't like. We are headed toward a release of a Star Traders Elite on the App Store for $1.99 and hope that the two in combination will help us get some traction on the App Store.

@nightc1 - thanks for all the feedback! Star Trader's certainly isn't for everyone! That's why we are sure to provide a nice free version of our games. Happy gaming!

I remember this playing on a BBS daily.. a long time ago.. (seems like this is the sam type of game)
You could make daily a few moves.. and all text based

Cool to hear a premium version is headed to the AppStore. Considering the file size and how much I like these kinds of games I can see forking over the $2.

I saw that update pop up out of nowhere and almost fell out of my seat; that's a lot of additions. Looking forward to diving in.

@pka - while Star Traders reminds many of earlier games like it (Elite and others), you should give it a try (its free!) and you will find that it is a deep and challenging space simulation that you will probably enjoy if you loved those old BBS days!

@nightc1 - when you reference file size -- is that a benefit (we are small) or a negative (too large!). Coming from Android, we really could not figure out how a 10 MB game on Android blew up into roughly 20 MB on the App Store and were worried that it was one more strike against us.

@undeadcow - we hope to just keep the hits coming! Since updates are really at a slow rhythm in the App Store, we end up bundling a ton into each one. On Android, we can update fast and furious, sometimes a twice a week with new content, awards, ships, feature requests from our user community, and bug fixes. We are still adapting to this new crazy world!

File size on this game is small (25.4MB installed) and to me that's a positive since I don't even have to think of needing to make space for this. Y'all are doing great on that front as far as I'm concerned. Big games on the other hand can be an issue... especially anything over 1GB.

Downloading...

Looks like there is already an expansion out. Seems to be a complex game...
