Hey wensler!

Man, you beat me to the punch -- thanks for posting some basic info about our newest game!

Rule the Sky just got released to all world regions. We were testing it a bit and ironing out the bugs in some test markets in China, Korea, and Thailand (that's part of the reason why you'll see most Nest users are from those countries. )

I'd like to add a easy-to-watch video player and some more screenshots from the game!

I'm enjoying the game, having trouble finding friends except through the leaderboards and everything is already used up in their Flotia's.

Feel free to add me:

Hey Torosama! Thanks for checking in!

You're right, it seems hard to find friends in the beginning if you don't know anyone's names to add. We need to find a way to fix that.

Did you see the message in the game's description about adding the following people as starter friends? These 3 people have tons of friends that you can dig through and add:

RuleTheSky
hellokitty
SnowWhite

I myself tend to look through their friends and try to find people who aren't Korean (LOL there's too many because the game was first tested in Korea ) or anyone with a cool-looking avatar!

Oh yeah, and wait for the label that says "Favor" or "Care" when you open your friend bar at the bottom. That will tell you that you can visit their Flotia and take care of their crops or do some work in their shops!

After trying out this game, here are my thoughts. For a freemium game, I really like the fantasy-ish setting (much better than a modern setting or farm setting to me). But, the first thing I always want to know when I play a new freemium game is, does the game have a spoiling mechanic? (ie. do my crops rot if I don't pick them fast enough?) Unfortunately, RtS does and that will prevent me from continuing to play after awhile. I CBF to log in every few hours to make sure my stuff doesn't spoil. I would like to play this game for fun, not as a part-time job.

I also think adding retina display support would be nice, as well as the addition of Game Center achievements. Sometimes it can get boring just clicking in order to churn gold into more gold, so achievements would give players goals to work towards. I think you guys have a really nice game here, but you're alienating a lot of players by not allowing people to play on their own time, rather than the game's time.

Ha ha, yeah! Playing some games take so much work that it does feel like a freaking part-time job! This happens a lot with Asian-style MMOs (massively multiplayer games in the same genre as World of Warcraft) where Western players do not like an intense grind in order to complete the end-game goals.

With Rule the Sky, the crop spoilage is mediated somewhat because your friends on Nest can actually revive your crops several times if they're working on your island. I've had it happen where I log into the game, thinking that I blew it with the harvest time, only to be pleasantly surprised that several friends on Nest have kept the crops alive.

Have you tried adding friends on Nest? I wish I could tell you about this more, but I myself cannot play the game after the latest update (on 4/18/2011) -- I could play the game the week before! So frustrating !! (I bet my 1st gen iPod Touch is getting too old to handle games like this...)

Retina-quality graphics and achievements are really good suggestions. I'll pass them along to the game development team! I think iPad-specific support is coming (along with an Android release.)

Let me know about other issues so we can make it better! Also, add me!! (HukNorris on Nest)
