Great Little War Game. Two.

Yep, it's now a thing. Went into Beta yesterday and will be released in a few weeks depending on how that goes.

Expectations:
This is a sequel to the original game. We went back to basics here to provide a more streamlined experience for playing on a mobile phone with one hand. This means portrait mode, shorter missions, etc.

We have deliberately not altered the units or terrain graphics etc., feeling that a sequel should be a sequel (And tbh that $2.99 would be a fair price for a 60 mission level pack to the original game anyway, but there's ton more than that in here.)

Also, multiplayer is not included because over 95% of GBWG players never touched it. Instead we've put in 60 single player missions.

The entire game will cost $2.99 with no IAP's, no adverts, no extra monetisation at all. All those people moaning about freemium promising to buy any games that "just work" ? We're calling you on it.

More news as we have it.

Thanks guys, good to see we're still getting interest.

The Beta is a closed now, sorry. We probably should have announced this bigger and louder before now, but we've had our heads down with lots of other stuff too. Plus it's not a large one - most of the stuff we know works already.

This is ridiculous - you promised us Great Little War Game was "the war game to end all war games" but have since developer two sequels. When is enough enough?

[ok ok bring 'em on!]

When our fans stop begging us for more GLWG, we'll stop making em. The giganto update for GBWG we're doing after this should really get those juices flowing also...
