What kind of game is it?

This is an open world/universe, you have to discover ways to travel around, make alliances and solve a mystery. Find new places, life forms, architecture, vehicles, spaceships, weapons, animals etc

It is a mission based game with a lot of choice and impact, visceral gameplay with large scale and variety. We are focused on adventure, experimentation and fun.

Wow. Looks awesome from the trailer. Eagerly anticipating this one. I loved Plunderland. All I can say is:

Yes it will have more content than Plunderland, we learnt a lot from that game. One of the biggest things is it was really hard to make updates to Plunderland and eventually we hit technical limits.

With this game we have built the engine with easy updates and new content in mind, we have tools to create new species,planets, spaceships etc and an in engine editor so we can fine tune and add new content much easier.

We are aiming to release before the end of the year, sooner the better. We will be more specific as soon as we feel confident about a date.

This looks über-kool. I need it now!

As was the case with the fabulous Plunderland, I presume this will be universal (or at least have an 'HD' iPad edition too)?

Is there a window for release as yet?
