    Good luck Rubicon! Hope your game does well!

    Just watched your trailer, wow, the graphics look great, and I see that your reviews so far look good.

    W00t, just spotted this thread. Thanks for starting it E7.

    God this is scary, I can't download it myself for another couple of hours, lol.

    Hope you all love the game. We've poured everything we could into this.

    I do know you have the "little" version of this on Android, which leads me to my question: Is there going to be cross platform multiplayer? Unfortunately some of my friends have dairy products as their device of choice.

    And a related question is your matchmaking system using iOS's GameCenter turn based API, your own homegrown system, or a mixture (i.e. using GameCenter as an authentication mechanism for logging into your own system)?

    Thanks! Really looking forward to this.

    It's already there and running. iOS vs Android vs whatever else we bring out later - pretty much everything!

    The entire online experience is via our own servers, as Apples one won't let us join up with those robot types or anyone else. It's dead easy to join though.

    We would love to use GC for friends and invites but that's against their terms and conditions so even that has to be custom for the game. It works nicely, but I apologise that there's an extra step here, we couldn't get around it.

    hats off to Rubicon!

    To add:

    Online multiplayer will be cross-platform with PC, Mac and Android very soon! I have spent a significant amount of time with the multiplayer during the beta and it works flawlessly!

    Congrats to Rubicon and I am confident that this game will explode on the app store!:D

    Paul and the Dev team at Rubicon have a proven record and their transparent interaction with the community as well as dedication in giving this game the highest level of support moving forward is impressive for a game that only costs a few bucks!

    Sooo who's ready to get their ass kicked in some multiplayer?!!

    Oh snap.

    There are some games you think long and hard about buying. You watch videos. You read reviews.

    This isn't one of them.

    Instant buy.

    You can browse open games to join or just start one and send it to "anyone".

    There's also a friends list for private games if you don't want to swim with the sharks. And a "blocked" list if you get bit by one. :)
