Default You Must Build A Boat (By Eighty-Eight games, maker of 10000000)

Quote:

I took a step back and realised Iíd added and removed so much stuff. There wasnít much that remained from 10000000. To get back on track I decided ďOK, this is a new game, and this is the experience, and Iíll take it from there.Ē The game has become way way better for it

Unfortunately for me Iíd promised a really big update, but now didnít have one, and to be honest, I donít want to have one. I really like what 10000000 was as a standalone experience and I donít want to mess with that.

Itís important for me to keep my word so, If youíve got 10000000, you can have the sequel, the whole shebang, for free too.


For PC, Iíve spoke to Steam and Humble and there a pretty easy way of doing this Ė If youíve got 10000000 when You Must Build A Boat launches, youíll get have it automatically added to your relevant account.

Iíve not quite worked out a good way to do this for Google Play/Appstore yet. If I canít come up with a better idea Ė Iíll just launch it free for a day, and then anybody who is a fan can grab it.

I'd happily pay for the new game even though we aren't getting the update anymore. The dev more than deserves it.

However, a lot of people around here feel weirdly entitled about these things and get super pissy when they have to pay a dollar or two, so whatever.

The developer is under no obligation to make the new game free to buyers of the old one. I more then got my monies worth from 10000000 and will also happily buy his Boat game.

If he launches it free for a day, I hope he puts in a $1 donation IAP for those who wish to support him

How about NOT downloading it on that day?

I'm really looking forward to this game! I kind of hope he doesn't release it for free, because that just seems silly. But... If he does, I hope he figures out a way to make that work for him. It should be good publicity, I suppose.
