Default 33rd Division : Operation Payback

Have just spied this on the Craneball official site, not sure of any release dates or whether it's still happening, but it does/did look quite promising.

Hmm character design Dec 2010?
Does that give a hint at how long it will be before release?

I.e how far through development do you actualy make characters?

Concept images can be very early, I've heard of a few devs around here say it was the first thing they did, even before they knew what the gameplay was

Hm, no replies to my e-mails to Craneballs yet, will update the thread if I hear anything. Looks like they're busy with Overkill at the moment..

No more news, guess this one is a dead duck for now.

I've no idea, you'd think that after 4 months they'd have something further to show than some concept art, so I can only imagine that it's been cancelled.

Sounded quite promising though, especially with the "PS: You can shoot back" tease at the bottom of the page.. the fact that you can no longer buy the original game isn't very encouraging either.

From Facebook:

Me Any news on 33rd Division: Payback?
37 minutes ago

Craneballs It will be released in future. But I cannot say when it will be.
22 minutes ago

Me Oh okay, are you also aware that the original 33rd Division has now been removed from the App Store? Any idea when it might be back?
14 minutes ago

Craneballs I spoke with my colleague and and 33rd Division will return to the AppStore in near future.
4 minutes ago

Not particularly informative, but we'll see what happens.

Any new news? I would love to purchase the original version of 33rd Division? Why was it taken down from the AppStore?

Default Operation Payback is getting out

It's been a while... a long while, but Operation Payback is underway!

33rd Division is available in Canada and New Zealand to test things out and iron out the details. Let us know what you consider to be a nuissance and what features would be great to have in the new version:
