Hi guys

unfortunately we have some bad news for those of you waiting for this game.

This project was far more complex than the team initially realised. They were able to get it to run on iOS but the UI was just so much work that it would take years to complete with the small team. Taking in to account how quickly Apple change the goal posts and what this would cost, its been decided to stop work on the project. It is a real shame as a game like this on iOS would have been great but the decline in premium games on iOS, old code base, dated UI design, and work to update those just make it prohibitively expensive and the team would never get their money back. Sorry we don't have better news for those if you waiting for this game.

The only good news is the team are looking at what they can do instead of this so hopefully we'll see them helping out on a existing project or starting a new one.

Cheers

Iain

Well that sure is a kick in the pants. There are really no games on IPAD worth playing save for the occasional Vietnam '65.

Remember just a few years ago the scare around here that the market was turning exclusively to mobile devices? That proved to be unfounded.

Too bad - amazing game. Just adding the current email system and re-releasing for PC with the best mods for a budget price would be pretty amazing.

I agree that this came could really use the new PBEM system, and a few updates. One of my favorites!
