Outer Empires Website Update

The upcoming MMO "Outer Empires" for the iPhone/iPod Touch (and browsers) has had a face lift with a new website opening today.

View it here :

There are loads of new bits of information about the game, including a fairly detailed wiki that the developers and testers have put together over the past few weeks of testing... some of them have even started on a French translation of it all already!

If you have any questions or comments, do post them up!

Regards,
Paul Hutson
Lead Developer Outer Empires.

Paul, I like it. Looks like it is coming together nicely. Are there going to be areas within the native iPhone app where you will need to jump into Safari in order to utilize?

1) Tried out AT&T tethering and did not have enough money for the pole.
2) Apple still hasn't fixed the no-hardware-keyboard bug.
3) Still can't use the "Cut" function on the AT&T bill...current 4.x issues

No, you can do everything on the iPhone that you can do in the browser - we've tried very hard to ensure that there is no advantage to playing with either version

It will be out next month, as early as we (and Apple ) can manage.

Unfortunately not, we have a closed group of beta testers on the iPhone/iPod Touch - note, we have played it on all versions of the iPod touch without any problems.

We've done another quick change on the site for those with resolutions of less than width 1280 to stop all the sideways scrolling back and forth.

Whoa, the trailer looks really, really impressive. Is there a tentative release date or debut price point?
