Trenches Team to focus on Hardcore Social Gaming!

Hello TouchArcadians!

We want to thank you for all of your help and support with our Trenches franchise on the iOS AppStore!

We wanted to open up our discussion with you guys since the people here pretty much know everything about the gaming side of the appstore.

We wanted to let you know we are giving a huge focus to Hardcore Social Gaming.... I know what you are thinking "Oh no, not more farmville clones!" You are right! There won't be any farmville clones from us!

We are serious when we say hardcore social gaming. We mean real games with multiplayer and other social aspects.

Yes, they will be Free-To-Play focused, but if you know our reputation, you know we provide value for our games. We have supported Trenches for over a year and never charged for IAP.

We will retain our quality of gaming and do whatever we can to make sure the players feel the value and have the right stuff to spend money on.

Creator of the hit games, Trenches and Stenches.

You were about to add IAP,s though but it's good you did not.

Dropped iPhone 6 on live tv. Became a viral sensation.

We would have been happy charging for IAP...but we promised our updates would be free, so we decided that our integrity had priority on that decision.
