Shattered Planet (Kitfox Games)

A fan posted about our game in the iPhone/iPod section and I thought I'd comment here, since it's primarily an iPad game.

The Shattered Planet website

It's a survival RPG with randomly generated levels, with silly aliens and a long meta-progression between runs. It's free to play, coming to tablets in February, with a PC version in spring. Die4Games also wrote a preview last week.

We're a team of 4. We'll have a trailer next week -- join our newsletter on the website if you want a reminder when we launch.

Feel free to post and ask any questions or make any comments/suggestions.

A rogue-like?

Looks fantastic; don't spend too much time on here - get coding ;-)

Free2Play scares me a little though... would much rather pay a premium entry of $10 for this than have it laden with IAP...

Yeah, as developers we're also more experienced with premium. The PC version will almost certainly be premium, probably in the $10 range.

But as a new studio with a close-to-0 marketing budget, we have to TRY free to play. After all, the amazing Cardinal Quest barely made enough to pay 1 man's salary, never mind the 4 of us. :\ It sucks but it's the reality.

Our IAP won't let you pay to win or to avoid death, though. It'll just let you customise your character, or be slightly faster in having more options/flexibility. But you can't progress faster -- you'll need skill for that. That's the line we won't cross.

Not to be "that guy", but this should probably be moved to the "Upcoming iPad Games" forum.

I saw this and got excited that this was something that was already out, only to see it's not coming out until Feb.

That said, are you looking for any beta testers? I'd love to help in that regard.

Oops, thanks for the note! I didn't realise that was a different forum. My mistake. Glad it was moved. Hooray for mods.

And for beta testing, if you join our newsletter, we'll be sending invites there as soon as we're ready. Thanks!

I believe this is coming out tonight. I played the beta and it's really good.
