As some people have asked for this - we decided to add Option buttons to the game, here's how it's shaping up for the next update!

Not final design yet but sharing as we decided to add a few more buttons to e.g. remove the link between Survival and visiting Raiding Co's Facebook page. So the Facebook button is there for that but any wild guesses on what happens when you hit the ham button? : )

Here's the final design with all the buttons, we changed the start screen too:




We decided to theme Update #10 as "Straight to Business" update.

Meaning we'll remove bunch of stuff we don't see working too well such as that that the Pilot and Stogie characters and Stogie's Challenges are unlockable by completing the game and Stogie's Challenges. In Update #10 all 6 characters and Stogie's Challenges are available from the get go.

You do need to complete all 5 missions to unlock Survival and without "IAP purchase fast track". That will take maybe 30-180 minutes based on your skill level. Please tell us if you don't like this idea.

If there is something else we should remove, or maybe add, speak up now as we're wrapping up Update #10 for AppStore submission!

Raiding Company Update #10 is nearing completion!

We made a big mistake with our (Tuokio) King of Opera update by changing the UI and select important features and with that making a few big fans of the game very unhappy. Learning from that we're trying avoid the same thing with Raiding Company by giving a run down of the changes, and heads up on what to expect. It would be great to hear feedback if you see changes, things that concern you as a fan of the game.

Update #10 Preview
- Simplifies the game's structure.
- Adds GameCenter Achievements and new Stogie's Challenges.
- Makes all characters playable from the start, no need to unlock by completing the game and Stogie's Challenges.
- Survival unlock without having to visit the game's Facebook page.
- Under the hood performance, weapon functionality, auto-aim etc. improvements.
- Less busy, gameplay focused AppStore pics (done!, http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/raiding-company/id422838860?mt=8)

#1 New Game Start Screen & Options Buttons
- Improvement: The 3D scene we didn't think is good enough replaced with title image.
- Added: Option buttons as people have wanted a few options in the game (ugly but functional).



#2 Simplified "Stogie Central" and Level Select Menu
- Improvement: Back button!
- Improvement: Stogie's Challenges are now the main feature vs Stogie's Briefing.
- Removed: Team intro speech bubble, replaced with more important GameCenter Achievements.
- Removed: Stogie's Challenges panel - cleaner UI but now you have to hit Challenges button to view Stogie's Challenges.
- Removed: Character Unlock panels as all characters are available from the start.



#3 Stogie's Challenges as a separate view
- Change: Will not be visible on Level Menu, you need to hit a button to view Stogie's Challenges.
- Changed to clean up the Level Menu UI and to have more room to display Stogie's Challenges.



#4 Improved Health Indicator
- More visible to even novice players - ugly but easier to understand.

So even with that tough exterior, Stogie really does care, eh?
