Is Fieldrunners dead?

I don't know, the devs didn't say anything about the update that was supposed to come out for months the forums are dead, full with spambots and 1 view, 0 reply threads about viagra and other crap.
I heard it will come to the psp but thats it. Anyone knows if there is still something coming out or something? I just find it bad style from the devs not announcing anything, not even posting on their own website, news or whatever.

Subatomic announced DLC for the new snow map which will be in the upcoming PSP mini version of Fieldrunners, that's all I heard.

Damn, that is awful. Hadn't been to the Fieldrunners forums for quite a while. It did get completely spammed out. I don't understand why they don't clean it up and lock down new registrations for a while or something... Spammers tried to hit my boards pretty hard for a while too but we managed to beat most of them down as soon as they appear.

As mentioned, all I know right now is one or two new maps from the PSP version will be available as DLC at 99 cents per level. Whether you think that is worthwhile or not is another story

Off topic- I'm always looking for good spritework, John do you have any portfolio or gallery online? Maybe pixeljoint, deviantart, anything? PM me with a link so I can see what you can do

As far as I know they announced content updates before they announced the PSP levels, so people in the ratings on iTunes and on other forums are wondering what happened to it and are kind of angry (on youtube for example).
I then went to the forums and it looks like the devs abandoned them.

It is ridiculous they are charging money for the new maps, that isn't fair to the customers they promised content updates to. This is one of the best selling games on the app store and it has never been below 2.99. I doubt this game would sell for more than .99 if it was released today. Now if the game already had 6 or 7 maps I feel like dlc would be reasonable because it is already a complete game and those who really like the game can get more. But the truth is this game is incomplete and this update should be free

These guys abandoned the iPhone for over 6 months after promising new updates. They're not getting another dollar from me, ever.
