as well as getting the android version out so that those folks can also play it.
As soon as I know when more content is coming I'll let you know!
Not to be flame bait but whenever I hear about an Android version I can't help but to think of the piracy horror stories that some games have had to deal with.

For example:
http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/20...-1-piracy-rate
and
http://www.cinemablend.com/games/Dea...tes-44969.html

If 9 out of 10 copies of 99 cent Android games are pirated, do you feel confident that they'll pay $7 for Ravensword? I'm sure copies for iOS are also acquired illegitimately so I'm not saying iOS players are saints.

Once you release on Android and collected some data, would you be willing to share details about the percentage of pirated copies on iOS vs Android?

yeah I'm sure its going to be pretty bad. the game wasn't designed to be a free game though. we're going to add a shop, so people can buy xp and boosts and stuff like that, maybe then some of the people who pirate on android will still pay for something.

Never thought I'd suggest this, but how about adding a shop to the iOS version and if the revenue is sufficient, add some new content?

Personally, it seems like a lot of effort with the expectation of a loss. never during my playthrough did I feel like I needed an XP boost or stuff like that so I'm curious if there's any revenue in that. I feel like most pirates hide behind the reason that "well there should be a free trial version". If you had a free version then they'd have no excuse.

It seems like such a widespread problem that you'd think developers would say "sorry, you can't have nice things" on Android or at least make a much bigger stink about it so that Google locks things down a bit more so that developers can deservedly make a living off their hard work.

As was mentioned by someone else, I'd rather you focused your efforts by adding new content for those who paid. if required, I'd even throw a couple dollars if there was an IAP for additional content...
