    Hi everyone this is Mat Annal here from Nitrome (you may remember us from our Super Feed Me project a while back or hopefully our flash games).

    I saw a few of you on the forum already notcied this so I wanted to highlight to you all our upcoming game Icebreaker - a Viking Voyage. We have put a ton of effort into this game and it is packed to burtsting point with variety, nice touches and side routes that go beyond what you might normally expect from a Physics puzzle game making it much more of an adveture.

    I have attached some shots here but there is much more info and imagery on the official page for the game here: http://www.nitrome.com/press/icebreaker-ios

    We are following all the comments you make on here and while your best going to get a responce on the official page we will try to answer questions you have here aswell :)

    Is this going to be released within this month? This season? This year..?
    Or will it be super feed me 2.0 of broken promises?

    I can see a lot of work is going into this title, and I'll be excited to actually give this a try. I'm wondering the same thing: how soon will this see the light of day? I hope soon, because the pictures look great. Any time in the near future? :)

    @Tannorexic and Anarkitty the release date is not really something we want to commit to at the moment. Super Feed Me got a lot of people very hyped and then very disappointed so were keen not to make the same mistakes this time out and promise anything like a date that we could miss. We waited until the game was 80 percent done this time out before announcing it and we have a team working on it so it is progressing at a good pace and there is no chance this is stopping at this point. We will be updating info and the percentage complete right up until launch so this time you can follow the progress......it's not too far off so hold tight :)

    IceBreaker - Update 1

    Hi All, just to let you know that there is an update giving more information about the game. We will be doing several of these leading up to the launch of the game. The first of these is 'Side Quests'. We have written what we hope will be an interesting post walking you through an example in the game with shots. This is a great example of one of the many additions we are adding to the genre to make this a really stand out experience and hopefully a top selling iOS release!

    Viking Slice was a clone of our IceBreaker flash games so the core mechanic will play similar to that. This game goes far beyond the basic mechanic however so you will be playing a much more in depth game with IceBreaker. You also get the added benefit of supporting the original creators of the concept so you can feel warm and fuzzy inside knowing your money is funding original game development rather than on copying others :)

    I sure hope it's free, but on the other hand, icebreaker is a quality game, but on the other hand, I could just play it on computer. (Yes, I have three hands, deal with it.)

    It's got the same cutting mechanic as the browser version of Icebreaker but it is a whole new game build from the ground up for iDevices. This version has tons of variety, side routes, secrets, a map screen (think mario world) a story and boss battles. We spent over a year and a half on this vs about 6 weeks on the original flash game so it's had a lot of love poured into it that we hope people are going to appreciate!

    Oh and there's tons more info about the features on the official website: www.Icebreaker-game.com

    I am betting $2 that it is $2. If I win, I get to spend it on IceBreaker, if I lose, Nitrome gets my money through the transaction I make when I buy IceBreaker.

    Is this out yet? Can't seem to find it on the App Store, does it have its own specific worldwide release time? Anyone have an App Store link?
