GI Joyride $0.99 Version 1.0!

[App Store Link]

Hello everyone,

We have just modified GI Joyride's pricing on the App Store (price change should be in effect within the next 24 hours).

The current version of GI Joyride will now be 99 cents, so grab it while it's hot because come April, we will be introducing GI Joyride 1.5 (you spoke and we listened) with new features and the price will be going back to $2.99.

Wow! That's great. I bought this at $2.99 and it's well worth that so I hope more people jump on board. What do you have planned for the update?

Hi Trapdoor,
I think it would be good if you can post all the coming new features and estimated release date in your first post, just so it's more informative to those who don't follow the original thread.

Thanks

Awesome! Looking forward to it. I'm really enjoying this game so far.

One small request....

Can the name "joyride" be capitalized once the game gets updated? That way it appears as "Joyride" on my iPod instead of "joyride"?
