Spiral episode 1 $4.99 -> $.99

Just a few days ago they dropped it to 3.99. How funny. App info?

Are they making enough money to make an episode 2?

I've been wondering the same. It's a great game, but aside from bigger devs like Tell Tale, that's the downside of episodic games. There's no guarantee of future episodes.

Still recommend picking this up and hopefully, the more sales it gets, the more likely we'll see Episode 2.

There are lots of REALLY cool games that don't get enough sales to get support. This and Crazy Hedgy are two good examples. Meanwhile, blatant Flappy Bird clones get more money by ads than some of those AAA games.

I hate the AppStore.

THIS. Agree 100%.

Spiral is one of the best indie games that happened on the appstore. Cant believe it didnt get enough attention.

Why would a game like spiral get attention on a mobile phone? You see, that's the problem. They're not a huge company like telltale who has a big user-base (from WD the TV series) nobody is aware of spiral... PLUS iOS and mobile gaming hasn't got a big audience of hardcore gamers; only casual gamers + a handful of hardcore / core gamers.

This game would do better on PC / console.
